Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's Chief Executive Officer commented, "we shipped 2,481MW of solar modules during the quarter while generating total revenues of $976.4 million. For the full year 2017, we further strengthened our leading global position in terms of global market share by shipping 9,807MW of solar modules, a 47.3% increase from 2016. Our gross margin was 11.3% for the year, compared to 18.1% in 2016, partially as a result of increased collaboration with OEM partners to meet surging market demand, especially in the first half of 2017, and higher raw material costs. We believe our gross margin and bottom line have ample room for improvement in 2018 as a result of the decrease in raw material costs, our reduced use of OEM, and enhanced cost structure supported by technology and supply chain management initiatives. We are confident in our ability to further expand our global market share in 2018."

"While many of the details from the Section 201 petition have yet to be ironed out, we have finalized plans to invest in the construction of an advanced solar module manufacturing facility in the southeastern United States to address local market demand. We will continue to invest in advanced manufacturing capacity overseas based on our global order book and market development. Emerging markets are gradually becoming our biggest growth driver, with demand from Latin America and Australia generating substantial growth momentum and the Middle East and African markets expected to rise in the coming year. We will continue to allocate more resources towards these high-growth markets in order to further solidify the long-term sustainable development of JinkoSolar."

"During the quarter, we continued to optimize our mono wafer production costs and have made substantial progress in crystalizing, cutting and argon recycling during the mono wafer production process. We broke our own world record during the quarter when solar cell efficiency for our P-type mono-crystalline PERC cell hit 23.45%. We also made solid progress in developing N type Hydride Oxide Thin Film (HOT) technology, with an industry-leading 21.9% in average cell efficiency during mass production. With demand increasing, we also plan to expand our production capacity of bifacial cell plus bifacial duo glass modules."

"We expect global demand to continue growing in 2018. This growth will mostly be driven by the emerging markets. With the cost of solar energy continuing to decrease and support for clean energy globally increasing, solar energy is becoming more and more competitive and are being applied more widely. We are very confident in the industry's long-term sustainability and prospects."

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB6.35 billion (US$976.4 million), a decrease of 1.0% from RMB6.42 billion in the third quarter of 2017 and an increase of 24.0% from RMB5.12 billion in the fourth quarter of 2016. The sequential decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in the shipment of silicon wafers and solar cells in the fourth quarter of 2017. The year-over-year increase was mainly attributable to an increase in solar module shipments, which was partially offset by a decline in the average selling price of solar modules in 2017.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB735.3 million (US$113.0 million), compared with RMB772.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 and RMB730.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The sequential decrease was mainly attributable to a slight decline in the gross margin of solar modules in the fourth quarter of 2017. The year-over-year increase was mainly attributable to an increase in solar module shipments, which was partially offset by a decline in the average selling price of solar modules in 2017.

Gross margin was 11.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with 12.0% in the third quarter of 2017 and 14.3% in the fourth quarter of 2016. The sequential decrease was mainly attributable to an increase in polysilicon cost and the appreciation of the RMB against the US dollar. The year-over-year decrease was mainly attributable to a decline in the average selling price of solar modules in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Income from Operations and Operating Margin

Income from operations in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB91.3 million (US$14.0 million), compared with RMB91.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 and RMB77.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Operating margin in the fourth quarter of 2017 was 1.4%, compared with 1.4% in the third quarter of 2017 and 1.5% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB644.0 million (US$99.0 million), a decrease of 5.4% from RMB680.5 million in the third quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 1.2% from RMB652.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The sequential decease was mainly due to a disposal gain in property, plant and equipment, which was partially offset by an increase in provision for accounts receivable. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a disposal gain in property, plant and equipment, which was partially offset by an increase in shipping costs.

Total operating expenses accounted for 10.1% of total revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 10.6% in the third quarter of 2017 and 12.7% in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB55.6 million (US$8.5 million), an increase of 6.2% from RMB52.3 million in the third quarter of 2017 and a decrease of 25.5% from RMB74.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The year-over-year decrease was due to a decrease in interest expenses associated with the Company's convertible senior notes, US$61.1 million of which were repurchased in the first quarter of 2017.

Exchange Gain / (Loss), Net

The Company recorded a net exchange loss (including change in fair value of forward contracts) of RMB33.9 million (US$5.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to a net exchange loss of RMB49.3 million in the third quarter of 2017 and a net exchange gain of RMB17.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. The sequential and year-over-year changes were primarily due to the continued depreciation of the US dollar against the RMB.

Income Tax Expense / (Benefit), Net

The Company recorded an income tax expense of RMB31.1 million (US$4.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with an income tax expense of RMB4.5 million in the third quarter of 2017 and an income tax benefit of RMB49.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share from continuing operations were both of RMB0.17 (US$0.03), during the fourth quarter of 2017. This translates into basic and diluted earnings per ADS from continuing operations both of RMB0.68 (US$0.12).

Non-GAAP net income in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB41.5 million (US$6.4 million), compared with RMB25.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 and RMB218.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share from continuing operations were RMB0.32 (US$0.05) and RMB0.31 (US$0.05), respectively, during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Full Year 2017 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues for the full year 2017 were RMB26.47 billion (US$4.07 billion), an increase of 23.7% from RMB21.40 billion for the full year 2016. The increase in total revenues was mainly attributable to the increase in shipments of solar modules, which was partially offset by a decline in the average selling price of solar modules.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the full year 2017 was RMB2.99 billion (US$459.8 million), a decrease of 22.7% from RMB3.87 billion for the full year 2016. Gross margin was 11.3% for the full year 2017, compared with 18.1% for the full year 2016. The decrease was due to a decline in the average selling price of solar modules, increased volume produced by OEM partners and higher polysilicon price during the full year 2017.

Income from Operations and Operating Margin

Income from operations for the full year 2017 was RMB325.3 million (US$50.0 million), compared with RMB1.35 billion for the full year 2016. Operating margin for the full year 2017 was 1.2%, compared with 6.3% for the full year 2016.

Total operating expenses for the full year 2017 were RMB2.67 billion (US$409.8 million), an increase of 5.8% from RMB2.52 billion for the full year 2016. Operating expenses represented 10.1% of total revenues for the full year 2017, compared with 11.8% for the full year 2016. The increase in total operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in shipping costs and warranty costs, which were partially offset by a disposal gain in property, plant and equipment and a decrease in bad debt expenses due to the reversal of allowance for doubtful accounts upon subsequent collections.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense for the full year 2017 was RMB245.5 million (US$37.7 million), a decrease of 31.7% from RMB359.3 million in 2016. The decrease was due to the repurchase of US$232.6 million in convertible senior notes and the repayment of US$123.5 million in bond payables.

Exchange Gain / (Loss), Net

The Company recorded an exchange loss of RMB122.6 million (US$18.8 million) for the full year 2017 due primarily to deprecation of US dollars against RMB. The Company had net exchange gain of RMB156.2 million in 2016.

Income Tax Expense, Net

Net income attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders from continuing operations for the full year 2017 was RMB141.7 million (US$21.8 million), compared with a net income of RMB990.7 million in 2016.

Basic and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full year 2017 were RMB1.10 (US$0.17) and RMB1.08 (US$0.17), respectively. This translates into basic and diluted earnings per ADS from continuing operations of RMB4.40 (US$0.68) and RMB4.32 (US$0.68), respectively.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the full year 2017 was RMB209.0 million (US$32.1 million), compared with non-GAAP net income of RMB1.27 billion in 2016.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations for the full year 2017 were RMB1.62 (US$0.25) and RMB1.59 (US$0.24), respectively, which translates into non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS from continuing operations of RMB6.48 (US$1.00) and RMB6.36 (US$0.96), respectively.

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, non-GAAP earnings per ADS, and non-GAAP diluted weighted average ordinary shares outstanding, 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 changes in fair value of convertible senior notes and capped call options, interest expenses of convertible senior notes, exchange gain on the convertible senior notes and capped call options, stock-based compensation, allocation of net income to redeemable non-controlling interests, and accretion to redemption value of redeemable non-controlling interests; 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 the expenses relating to the issuance costs of convertible senior notes, changes in fair value of convertible senior notes and capped call options, interest expenses of convertible senior notes and exchange gain on the convertible senior notes and capped call options, stock-based compensation, and accretion to redemption value of redeemable non-controlling interests.

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.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
At the keynote this morning we spoke about the value proposition of Nutanix, of having a DevOps culture and a mindset, and the business outcomes of achieving agility and scale, which everybody here is trying to accomplish," noted Mark Lavi, DevOps Solution Architect at Nutanix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
I think DevOps is now a rambunctious teenager - it's starting to get a mind of its own, wanting to get its own things but it still needs some adult supervision," explained Thomas Hooker, VP of marketing at CollabNet, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
"MobiDev is a software development company and we do complex, custom software development for everybody from entrepreneurs to large enterprises," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage.
