DENVER, June 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), a residential and small-business commercial solar company since 1978, has been selected by Solarize Cranston, through a state-run program, Solarize Rhode Island, to bring solar electricity to home and business owners in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Solarize Rhode Island is a community supported discount buying program that uses tiered pricing, town supported education and outreach, competitively selected installers and access to flexible financing to dramatically reduce the cost of solar. The more residents sign up for the program, the more the cost comes down. The township of Cranston is the third largest city in the state, consisting of approximately 31,000 homeowners.

The following organizations will work together to provide marketing support for the campaign: RGS Energy, the Solarize Rhode Island Program Administrators, the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER), the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation’s Renewable Energy Fund, and SmartPower, a non-profit marketing firm dedicated to promoting clean energy and energy efficiency. The campaign began June 7 and will run through September 8.

“Solarize Rhode Island is an exciting program that has educated thousands of Rhode Island residents and facilitated almost 500 residents and business owners to make the decision to go solar,” said Shauna Beland, the Solarize Rhode Island Program Manager. “OER looks forward to working in Cranston with RGS Energy on continuing to provide solar education to Cranston residents.”

Karen Stewart, community outreach manager of SmartPower, noted: “Once again we are joining forces with RGS Energy to help increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity to another Rhode Island community. In Rhode Island, RGS Energy has completed hundreds of solar installations, several of which are in Cranston. They can provide the type of efficiency and capacity that Cranston needs and this makes them an excellent fit for the Spring 2017 Solarize Cranston campaign. In addition, their marketing support and experience were key factors in the selection of RGS Energy as the preferred installer.”

RGS Energy Vice President of Sales Seth Wiggins commented: “We are honored to be chosen as the preferred installer on another Solarize Rhode Island campaign. For nearly four decades, we have been helping homeowners and businesses reduce their electricity costs with sustainable, renewable solar power. In fact, this solarize program marks the 41st time in our history we have been awarded a community solarize campaign. We believe that this may have the potential to be our most successful Solarize Rhode Island program to date.”

Exhibit A
June 6, 2017

The Board of Directors
JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (the “Company”)
Building No.8, Noble Center, Automobile Museum East Road
Fengtai, Beijing 100070
The People’s Republic of China

Dear Members of the Board of Directors:

Reference is made to the non-binding preliminary proposal, dated June 5, 2015 (the “Original Proposal”), made by Mr. Baofang Jin, chairman and chief executive officer of the Company, and Jinglong Group Co., Ltd., a British Virgin Islands company of which Mr. Baofang Jin is the sole director (together, the “Buyer Group”), to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares (the “Shares”) of the Company not already owned by the members of the Buyer Group or their respective affiliates (the “Acquisition”).

We very much appreciate the time spent and efforts made by the special committee (the “Special Committee”) of the Company’s board of directors and its advisors so far to consider and evaluate our Original Proposal. We are submitting this revised non-binding proposal to reaffirm our interests in the Acquisition and to revise our offer price (the “Offer Price”) to US$6.80 in cash per American Depositary Share of the Company (“ADS”, each representing five Shares), or US$1.36 in cash per Share.

Our decision to revise the Offer Price has been a difficult one to make but is necessitated by the tougher than expected market conditions faced by the Company.  In particular,

  • The global financial markets have experienced significant volatility recently, including substantial volatility in equity securities markets and volatility and tightening of liquidity in credit markets. These developments have negatively affected our ability to raise the necessary equity and debt financing required by our Original Proposal.
  • Outlook for the solar industry remains gloomy in the short term due to increasing overcapacity and slowing demand. In the first quarter of 2017, the Company’s gross margin went down 120 and 490 basis points quarter-on-quarter and year on year due to lower average selling prices. Prices of, and demand for, photovoltaic modules and cells in China are expected to weaken after June 30, 2017, the grid-connection deadline to avoid planned tariff cuts. The Company also expects possible price and volume decline in South America and India, which are perceived to be the key markets for solar demand growth.
  • The growth prospect of the Company is subject to increased uncertainty in trade policy and government subsidies, where changes can occur unexpectedly.  For example, a U.S. solar manufacturer recently filed a minimum import price petition under Section 201 of the Trade Act of 1974 with The United States International Trade Commission. If the United States grants Section 201 relief with a four-year minimum import price on photovoltaic modules and cells, which could be set at roughly twice the current market price, the Company’s business would be negatively affected.
  • China’s GDP growth rate was 6.7% in the 2016, which was the lowest since 1990, and the economic slowdown and challenges to the macroeconomic environment in China are expected to sustain. The solar industry in China may have reached market saturation after rapid development over the past few years. The annual demand for photovoltaic modules in China is predicted to drop from 34.2 gigawatts in 2016 to 31.5 gigawatts in 2017. Coupled with overcapacity in the Chinese solar industry, the Company may face greater challenges to grow or even to maintain its market position.

In closing, we continue to be fully committed to close the Acquisition and believe that the Acquisition would provide attractive value to the Company’s shareholders. We hope that the Special Committee will give prompt consideration to our revised proposal and we are prepared to move forward with the Acquisition on an expedited basis.

Should you have any questions regarding this proposal, please do not hesitate to contact the undersigned. We look forward to hearing from you.

DENVER, June 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), a residential and small-business commercial solar company since 1978, has been selected by Solarize Cranston, through a state-run program, Solarize Rhode Island, to bring solar electricity to home and business owners in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Solarize Rhode Island is a community supported discount buying program that uses tiered pricing, town supported education and outreach, competitively selected installers and access to flexible financing to dramatically reduce the cost of solar. The more residents sign up for the program, the more the cost comes down. The township of Cranston is the third largest city in the state, consisting of approximately 31,000 homeowners.

The following organizations will work together to provide marketing support for the campaign: RGS Energy, the Solarize Rhode Island Program Administrators, the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER), the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation’s Renewable Energy Fund, and SmartPower, a non-profit marketing firm dedicated to promoting clean energy and energy efficiency. The campaign began June 7 and will run through September 8.

“Solarize Rhode Island is an exciting program that has educated thousands of Rhode Island residents and facilitated almost 500 residents and business owners to make the decision to go solar,” said Shauna Beland, the Solarize Rhode Island Program Manager. “OER looks forward to working in Cranston with RGS Energy on continuing to provide solar education to Cranston residents.”

Karen Stewart, community outreach manager of SmartPower, noted: “Once again we are joining forces with RGS Energy to help increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity to another Rhode Island community. In Rhode Island, RGS Energy has completed hundreds of solar installations, several of which are in Cranston. They can provide the type of efficiency and capacity that Cranston needs and this makes them an excellent fit for the Spring 2017 Solarize Cranston campaign. In addition, their marketing support and experience were key factors in the selection of RGS Energy as the preferred installer.”

RGS Energy Vice President of Sales Seth Wiggins commented: “We are honored to be chosen as the preferred installer on another Solarize Rhode Island campaign. For nearly four decades, we have been helping homeowners and businesses reduce their electricity costs with sustainable, renewable solar power. In fact, this solarize program marks the 41st time in our history we have been awarded a community solarize campaign. We believe that this may have the potential to be our most successful Solarize Rhode Island program to date.”

BEIJING, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced its unaudited financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

First Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Total shipments were 1,392.7 megawatts (“MW”), consisting of 1,325.1 MW of modules and 50.2 MW of cells to external customers, and 17.4 MW of modules to the Company’s downstream projects.  External shipments were up 32.5% y/y and down 2.6% sequentially
     
  • Shipments of modules were 1,325.1 MW, an increase of 44.1% y/y and a decrease of 2.1% sequentially
     
  • Shipments of cells were 50.2 MW, a decrease of 57.8% y/y and 14.8% sequentially
     
  • Net revenue was RMB 3.7 billion ($536.4 million), an increase of 6.4% y/y and a decrease of 7.5% sequentially
     
  • Gross margin was 11.7%, a decrease of 490 basis points y/y and 120 basis points sequentially
     
  • Operating profit was RMB 80.0 million ($11.6 million), compared to RMB 223.3 million ($32.4 million) in the first quarter of 2016, and RMB 370.5 million ($53.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2016
     
  • Net income was RMB 8.1 million ($1.2 million), compared to RMB 158.0 million ($23.0 million) in the first quarter of 2016, and RMB 353.4 million ($51.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2016
     
  • Earnings per diluted ADS were RMB 0.17 or $0.03, compared to RMB 2.74 or $0.40 in the first quarter of 2016, and RMB 6.80 or $0.99 in the fourth quarter of 2016

Mr. Baofang Jin, Chairman and CEO of JA Solar, commented, “Our operating results were in line with our expectations. We delivered high-single-digit year over year revenue growth on robust external shipments, driven by strength in the Asia Pacific markets. We expect solid demand from China in the second quarter, driven by accelerated activity ahead of subsidy reductions.  Despite this near-term strength, we are cautious on the business outlook for the second half of 2017, given limited visibility into customer demand, as well as the competitive pricing environment across multiple geographies.”

Mr. Jin continued, “We remain committed to streamlining our operations in order to optimize efficiencies, and are focused on executing our business strategy to provide our customers with high-quality products.  We continue to believe that our geographic exposure, prudent cost control and flexible business model will enable us to navigate through industry cycles. As market conditions improve, we will be positioned for sustainable long-term growth.”

All shipment and financial figures refer to the quarter ended March 31, 2017, unless otherwise specified.  All “year over year” or “y/y” comparisons are against the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  All “sequential” comparisons are against the quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Total shipments were 1,392.7 MW, in line with our previously announced guidance. External shipments of 1,375.3 MW increased 32.5% year over year and decreased 2.6% sequentially.

The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to a decline of average selling price of solar modules in the first quarter of 2017.

Total operating expenses of RMB 353.3 million ($51.3 million) were 9.6% of revenue.  This compares to operating expenses of 10.1% of revenue in the year-ago quarter, and 3.6% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016. Included in operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2016 were a one-time reversal of RMB 348.3 million ($50.6 million) of previously recorded expenses due to the resolution of the Company’s dispute with Hemlock Semiconductor Pte. Ltd, and a one-time charge of RMB 99.6 million ($14.5 million) resulted from the termination of business relationship with one of the Company’s business partners.

Operating profit was RMB 80.0 million ($11.6 million), compared to RMB 223.3 million ($32.4 million) in the year-ago quarter, and RMB 370.5 million ($53.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2016.  Operating margin was 2.2%, compared with 6.4% in the prior year period and 9.3% in the previous quarter.

Interest expense was RMB 83.3 million ($12.1 million), compared to RMB 67.3 million ($9.8 million) in the year-ago quarter, and RMB 72.9 million ($10.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The change in fair value of warrant derivatives was nil, compared with positive RMB 23.4 million ($3.4 million) in the year-ago quarter, and nil in the fourth quarter of 2016. The warrants were issued on August 16, 2013 in conjunction with the Company’s $96 million registered direct offering, and expired on August 16, 2016.

Earnings per diluted ADS were RMB 0.17 or $0.03, compared to earnings per diluted ADS of RMB 2.74 or $0.40 in the year-ago quarter, and earnings per diluted ADS of RMB 6.80 or $0.99 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Liquidity
