BAODING, China, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), the world's largest vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") manufacturer, known as "Yingli Solar", today announced its preliminary estimates of certain financial results for the first quarter of 2014.
The Company estimates that its PV module shipments in the first quarter of 2014 decreased by low thirties percent from the fourth quarter of 2013, which is below its previous guidance of a mid-twenties percent decrease. The decrease was primarily due to a soft demand in China market as the result of a traditional seasonality and a slightly delayed schedule for delivering PV modules for projects in Algeria. This delivery delay was due to a longer than expected process for obtaining local construction permission and the delayed modules are now expected to be delivered in the following quarters. However, based on global market developments and, in particular, robust demand from China, U.S., Japan and other markets, the Company reiterates its PV modules shipment guidance of 4.0GW to 4.2GW for fiscal year 2014.
Furthermore, the Company estimates its overall gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 to be in the range of 15.5% to 16.5%, compared with its previous guidance of 14% to 16%. This increase is primarily due to a higher average selling price in the first quarter of 2014.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.
