SHANGHAI, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018.

First Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Total solar module shipments were 2,015 megawatts ("MW") (including 209 MW to be used in the Company's overseas downstream solar projects for which no revenue has been recognized), a decrease of 18.8% from 2,481 MW in the fourth quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 2.6% from 2,068 MW in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Total revenues were RMB4.57 billion (US$728.1 million), a decrease of 28.1% from the fourth quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 20.9% from the first quarter of 2017.
  • Gross margin was 14.4%, compared with 11.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 11.2% in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Income from operations was RMB125.0 million (US$19.9 million), compared with RMB91.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB56.8 million in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders was RMB3.6 million (US$0.6 million) in the first quarter of 2018, compared with RMB22.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB60.6 million in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Diluted earnings per American depositary share ("ADS") were RMB0.096(US$0.016).
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders in the first quarter of 2018 was RMB11.0 million (US$1.7 million), compared with RMB41.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB80.0 million in the first quarter of 2017.
  • Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS were RMB0.300(US$0.048) and RMB0.296(US$0.048) in the first quarter of 2018, compared with RMB1.272 and RMB1.232 in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB2.536 and RMB2.508 in the first quarter of 2017.

Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's Chief Executive Officer commented, "We shipped 2,015MW of solar modules during the quarter and generated total revenues of $728.1 million. Our gross margin increased to 14.4%, compared with 11.6% last quarter as we benefit from the drop in polysilicon prices and the further optimization of our manufacturing costs as a result of continued technological improvement and reduced OEM usage."

"The new policies regulating the solar industry jointly issued by three Chinese ministries on May 31, affected market sentiment and our ASPs. These new policies are aimed at increasing the pace of achieving grid parity, accelerating the removal of outdated capacity and releasing the pressure of new energy fund deficits. As a result, we expect to see a decline in prices across our industrial supply chain which will allow us to further cut both silicon and non-silicon costs during the second half of the year to offset the decline in the ASPs. Despite the strong initial reaction to the new policies, we remain optimistic about the demand of the Chinese market for the full year 2018, which is expected to hit 35G+. Looking into 2019, aside from the Top Runner Program, poverty alleviation and DG projects, we expect to see a large number of grid parity projects under new business models appear in the second of half of 2019."

"We already have great visibility for the full year 2018 with over 80% of our order book already filled, which is mostly made up of overseas orders with fixed prices throughout the year, and we have already received a number of prepayments. Our production capacity is fully utilized now and is expected to remain so during the second half of the year. We believe the Chinese government's new policies to have relatively limited impact on our operations over the short term, and we remain confident in our future business prospects and the long-term growth of the industry overall."

"Overseas orders will account for about 80% of our overall shipments for the entire year demonstrating our expanding global footprint and the success we have seen in reducing our reliance on any single market. Solar is becoming more and more competitive worldwide. We saw resurgent demand in Southern European markets such as Spain, Portugal and Italy, driven by grid-parity business model, as well as booming demand in new emerging markets such as Latin American, the Middle East and North Africa. We expect to see demand in India rebound strongly as module price goes down." 

"While the policy changes in China have created a challenging domestic market environment, our extensive global sales network and geographically dispersed manufacturing facilities allow us remain flexible and be prepared to rapidly adapt to any future policy changes. We are fully prepared for the market consolidation and the new era of grid parity. We will continue to take advantages of our brand, technology, and global infrastructure to expand our market share and further consolidate our leading position in the industry.

First Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues in the first quarter of 2018 were RMB4.57 billion (US$728.1 million), a decrease of 28.1% from RMB6.35 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 20.9% from RMB5.78 billion in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in the shipment of solar modules in the first quarter of 2018. The year-over-year decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in solar module shipments and a decline in the average selling price of solar modules in 2018.

Adoption of New Revenue Standard:

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted new revenue guidance ASC Topic 606, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers", and applied the modified retrospective method to contracts which were not completed as of January 1, 2018.

No cumulative catch up adjustment of initially applying this standard was recognized at the date of initial application on January 1, 2018.

Adoption of the new standards related to revenue recognition had no impact on the Company's reported results for the current period.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the first quarter of 2018 was RMB656.1 million (US$104.6 million), compared with RMB735.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB649.0 million in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in the shipment of solar modules in the first quarter of 2018. The year-over-year increase was mainly attributable to decreasing solar module cost, which was partially offset by a decrease in solar module shipments in 2018.

Gross margin was 14.4% in the first quarter of 2018, compared with 11.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 11.2% in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential and year-over-year increases were mainly attributable to a decrease in silicon cost in the first quarter of 2018, which was partially offset by a decline in the average selling price of solar modules in the first quarter of 2018.

Income from Operations and Operating Margin

Income from operations in the first quarter of 2018 was RMB125.0 million (US$19.9 million), compared with RMB91.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB56.8 million in the first quarter of 2017. Operating margin in the first quarter of 2018 was 2.7%, compared with 1.4% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 1.0% in the first quarter of 2017.

Total operating expenses in the first quarter of 2018 were RMB531.1 million (US$84.7 million), a decrease of 17.5% from RMB644.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 10.3% from RMB592.2 million in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential decease was mainly due to a decrease in shipping cost as a result of decreased solar module shipments, and a decrease of bad debt expenses attributable to the reversal of allowance for doubtful accounts upon subsequent collections. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a decrease in shipping costs.

Total operating expenses accounted for 11.6% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2018, compared to 10.1% in the fourth quarter of 2017 and 10.3% in the first quarter of 2017.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense in the first quarter of 2018 was RMB85.4 million (US$13.6 million), an increase of 53.8% from RMB55.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and an increase of 49.5% from RMB57.1 million in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential and year-over-year increases were due to interest expense associated with discounted notes receivable and an increase in borrowings.

Exchange Gain / (Loss), Net

The Company recorded a net exchange loss (including change in fair value of forward contracts) of RMB90.8 million (US$14.5 million) in the first quarter of 2018, compared to a net exchange loss of RMB33.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and a net exchange loss of RMB5.2 million in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential and year-over-year losses were primarily due to the continued depreciation of the US dollar against the RMB during the quarter.

Income Tax Expense / (Benefit), Net

The Company recorded an income tax benefit of RMB3.3 million (US$0.5 million) in the first quarter of 2018, compared with an income tax expense of RMB31.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and an income tax expense of RMB1.5 million in the first quarter of 2017. The sequential and year-over-year change was due to one of the Company's PRC subsidiaries receiving a tax deduction certificate in the first quarter of 2018, entitling the subsidiary to income tax deductions for 2017 and 2018.

The Company recorded an out-of-period adjustment of RMB4.6 million (US$0.7 million) in the first quarter of 2018 resulting from income tax benefits for one of its PRC entities, which should have been recorded in 2017. Neither the originating amount in 2017 nor the out-of-period adjustment amount recorded in 2018 was material to the Company's consolidated financial statements for the respective periods.

Net Income and Earnings per Share

Net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders was RMB3.6 million (US$0.6 million) in the first quarter of 2018, compared with RMB22.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB60.6 million in the first quarter of 2017.

Basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share were RMB0.025(US$0.004) and RMB0.024(US$0.004), respectively during the first quarter of 2018. This translates into basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.100(US$0.016) and RMB0.096(US$0.016), respectively.

Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter of 2018 was RMB11.0 million (US$1.7 million), compared with RMB41.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017 and RMB80.0 million in the first quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share were RMB0.075(US$0.012) and RMB0.074(US$0.012), respectively during the first quarter of 2018. This translates into non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.300(US$0.048) and RMB0.296(US$0.048), respectively.

Financial Position

As of March 31, 2018, the Company had RMB2.86 billion (US$456.6 million) in cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash, compared with RMB2.76 billion as of December 31, 2017.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), JinkoSolar uses certain non-GAAP financial measures including, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per Share, and non-GAAP earnings per ADS, which are adjusted from the comparable GAAP results to exclude certain expenses or incremental ordinary shares relating to share-based compensation, convertible senior notes and capped call options:

  • Non-GAAP net income is adjusted to exclude the expenses relating to interest expenses of convertible senior notes, exchange gain on the convertible senior notes, and stock-based compensation; given these Non-GAAP net income adjustments above are either related to the Company or its subsidiaries incorporated in Cayman Islands, which are not subject to tax exposures, or related to those subsidiaries with tax loss positions which result in no tax impacts, therefore no tax adjustment is needed in conjunction with these Non-GAAP net income adjustments; and
  • Non-GAAP earnings per Share and non-GAAP earnings per ADS are adjusted to exclude interest expenses of convertible senior notes and exchange gain on the convertible senior notes, and stock-based compensation.

The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP information is useful for analysts and investors to evaluate JinkoSolar's current and future performances based on a more meaningful comparison of net income and diluted net income per ADS when compared with its peers and historical results from prior periods. These measures are not intended to represent or substitute numbers as measured under GAAP. The submission of non-GAAP numbers is voluntary and should be reviewed together with GAAP results.

Currency Convenience Translation

The conversion of Renminbi into U.S. dollars in this release, made solely for the convenience of the readers, is based on the noon buying rate in the city of New York for cable transfers of Renminbi as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as of March 30, 2018, which was RMB6.2726 to US$1.00. No representation is intended to imply that the Renminbi amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized, or settled into U.S. dollars at that rate or any other rate. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on Renminbi.

SHANGHAI, May 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar PV industry, announced that its entire portfolio of PV modules has passed the Potential Induced Degradation ("PID") resistance test under the conditions of 85 Degrees Celsius/85% relative humidity ("double 85") as required by TÜV Nord's IEC TS 62804-1 standards.

As a global leader in the solar PV industry, JinkoSolar recognizes the harm brought about by PID and has devoted resources over the course of its history towards increasing the PID resistance of its entire portfolio of modules.

In November 2016, JinkoSolar became the first PV module manufacturer to guarantee anti-PID under double 85 conditions. In July 2017, JinkoSolar became the first PV module provider to guarantee that all its standard mass produced PV modules meet IEC62804 double anti-PID standards.

Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Through our relentless efforts over the years, we are pleased to announce that all our regular mono and polycrystalline PV modules meet TÜV Nord's IEC TS 62804-1 double 85 anti-PID standards. I believe this demonstrates our leadership position when it comes to developing and promoting global PV standards. We have made great progress in improving our system voltage and in developing anti-PID technology in order to guarantee that our products operate reliably under the toughest conditions and ensure the investment return for our customers and the constant and stable output of our PV systems."

SHANGHAI, May 18, 2018/PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar photovoltaic industry, today announced that the 60P version of its P-type PV module peak power broke the world record again with power exceeding 370w and the N-type PV module peak power reaching 378.6w. Both records were certified by the TUV Rheinland (Shanghai) Co., Ltd.

P-type mono modules contain JinkoSolar's world record high efficiency cells. These cells combined with low electricity loss technology, which reduces the module internal resistance and improves its fill factor, allowing peak power to exceed 370W. N-type dual glass modules, leverage passivating contact technology achieve high efficiency with front-side peak power reaching 378.6W. With its excellent bifacial factor, this N-type module can improve outdoor power output per unit dramatically.

Dr. Jin Hao, Vice President of JinkoSolar commented, "Every technological breakthrough results from a strong pioneering spirit and constant search for excellence. Companies with strong independent innovation capabilities are able to grasp opportunities in fiercely competitive markets and establish leadership. JinkoSolar always applies advanced technologies to large-scale applications rapidly to accelerate the popularization of PV applications."

SHANGHAI, May 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar photovoltaic industry, today announced that its P-type monocrystalline cell broke the world record again with efficiency hitting 23.95% during certification testing done by the Photovoltaic and Wind Power Systems Quality Test Center at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

P-type mono wafer technology is a contributor, with the highly doped and low defect wafers providing excellent bulk quality. The continued gain in efficiency is a result of the further optimization of selective emitter (SE) formation, silicon oxide passivation and the rear side passivation. JinkoSolar's unique light-capturing technology uses black silicon and the multi-layer ARC technology reduces the front side reflectivity of cells to be lower than 0.5%, which ensures the growth of the short-circuit current. Meanwhile, an advanced grid design and a new type of screen-printing paste are used to reduce the series resistance and the metal / silicon interface compound probability as a result of promotion of solar cell fill factor.

Mr. Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar, commented, "This recent technical breakthrough is a combination of several our latest technologies. In particular, the introduction of novel passivation and selective contact technology have successfully broken the technical bottleneck created by traditional PERC technology and represents a significant step forward for our P type solar cells with their previous efficiency record of 23.45% in 2017. We will continue to allocate resources towards innovating new and high efficiency solar technologies and their application to the market as we continue to provide the most reliable and highest efficiency products."
