"In the first quarter of 2012, we continued to operate our polysilicon production in full utilization. We exceeded our targets for shipments. Nevertheless, the solar PV market remains weak due to restrained demand as a result of uncertainties including changing governmental policies, tight credit markets and potential international trade conflicts." commented Dr. Gongda Yao, Chief Executive Officer of the Company "We will focus on the operation of our existing polysilicon site in Wanzhou and the construction of Phase 2 polysilicon plant in Xinjiang. We are confident that after our Phase 2 facilities commence production, we will be well positioned with a much lower cost structure and larger capacity."
