"In the fourth quarter of 2014, we exceeded our fourth quarter guidance for shipments and met our gross margin guidance despite continued challenges from the macro economy, including foreign exchange volatility. We also continued to implement our strategy of shifting the focus of our business to retail-oriented and commercial customers with bundled services and downstream projects," said Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola’s chief executive officer. "Due to the flexible nature of our global manufacturing network, we were able to rebalance our geographic mix by reducing our exposure in euro-denominated markets and shifting towards dollar-based and other non-euro markets during the fourth quarter. Our customer base has increased to 2,546 as we provided more renewable energy products and services to smaller-sized customers, representing a client pool that we expect to yield additional cross-selling opportunities for our products and services."

Mr. Daniel K. Lee, ReneSola’s chief financial officer, said, "In line with our prudent approach to business expansion, we continue to improve our financial metrics including enhancing our cash position and reducing our long-term liabilities. During the fourth quarter, we reduced our long-term debt and convertible notes by $13.2 million and $17.0 million, respectively. Also, our operating cash flow was positive during the fourth quarter. We will strive to further improve our financial position as we expand and diversify our business worldwide."

In Q4 2014, the Company exceeded its targets for module shipments and met its target for gross margin. The sequential increase in module shipments was mainly due to the Company’s expansion into new international markets, such as India. The year-over-year decrease in wafer shipments reflects the Company’s strategy of shifting away from lower-margined wafer business and towards the higher margined module business.

Before the adjustment, the gross profit for Q4 2013 was $47.4 million and the gross margin was 10.8%.

Net revenues increased quarter over quarter in line with the increase in module shipments. The sequential decrease in the Company’s gross margin was a result of a lower average selling price (ASP) of module, mainly due to appreciation of the US dollar especially against the euro, partially offset by a decrease in cost.

Before the adjustment, the operating expense for Q4 2013 was $38.6 million, the operating income was $8.8 million and the operating margin was 2.0%.

During Q4, the Company’s SG&A expense showed a slight sequential decrease due to improved cost control. The sequential increase in operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in administrative items gains during Q3 of 2014.

Foreign Exchange Gain (Loss)

In Q4 2014, the Company had a foreign exchange loss of US$13.5 million and recognized a US$4.4 million gain on derivatives. The foreign exchange loss was primarily due to the depreciation of the euro and yen against the U.S. dollar.

Change in Fair Value of Warrant Derivative Liabilities

The Company recognized a gain from a change in the fair value of warrant derivative liabilities of US$4.7 million in Q4 2014 primarily due to the decrease in the Company’s stock price.

Other Gains (Loss)

During the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company recognized a gain of $7.0 million from the repurchase of convertible notes and an investment income of $4.9 million from the sale of a 37MW distributed generation project in China.

The year-over year increase in net revenues was in line with the increase in module shipments and reduced shipments in the Company’s wafer business. Gross margin increased to 13.4% in 2014 from 7.4% in 2013 mainly due to a higher module ASP and lower module cost, as well as a shift from the lower-margin wafer business to the higher-margin module business.

The 39.9% year-over-year decline in operating expenses was mainly due to a long-lived asset impairment incurred in 2013 related to Sichuan polysilicon phase I plant.

The significant increase in module shipments to the U.S. market and the decrease in Europe was a result of the comparatively strong U.S. solar market and the weakening euro against the U.S. dollar during Q4 of 2014. The increases in "other" markets were the result of the Company’s overall international expansion, especially into emerging markets.

Research and Development

During Q4 2014, ReneSola continued to invest in the development of new technologies and to increase the efficiency of its current range of solar products.

Wafers and Modules

The Company successfully upgraded the processing technology of its A+++ wafer. While maintaining the same average efficiency of 17.8%, the wafer’s processing cost was reduced by 4%.

The Company’s 275W (60-Cell) and 330W (72-Cell) polycrystalline module has been completed and will enter mass production soon. The average power output of the Company’s module products has been further improved: the lower-limit module product was upgraded to 255W (60-Cell) and 305W (72-Cell).

The certification process is underway for the Company’s double-glass module with 1500V maximum system voltage, which is expected to enter production soon.

Inverter

The Company’s new 300W micro inverter is now in trial production and undergoing onsite project testing. Related certifications have been obtained in several key markets in North America and Europe. The first batch of related products is expected to enter the market soon.

The Company continues to obtain applicable certification for its string inverters across several international markets: TLE series with VDE4105, VDE V 0126, AS4777, and G83 certifications are now eligible for sale in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia. TLA series with MEA and PEA credentials are available in Thailand. TLB U.S. series now feature AFCI functions.

The Company’s innovative 5KW hybrid inverter has now received applicable certification and is in trial production.

LED

The Company recently launched its range of LED bulb products with plastic-coated aluminum material. The material compared to traditional aluminum heat dissipation bodies is more cost competitive with outstanding insulation performance.

The Company’s LED lighting tubes include rotatable end cap designs for 1/2 aluminum and 1/2 plastic tubes, 1/3 aluminum and 2/3 plastic tube, full plastic tubes, and glass tubes, all of which are now available worldwide.

The Company continues to obtain certifications across different continents for its LED products, including LED bulbs and spotlights. The Company’s first batch of LED lighting products was shipped to customers in January 2015, with additional shipments scheduled to start from March 2015.

For European and North American markets, the Company launched its LED High Bay featuring high brightness SMD chips. CB certification was obtained in late February 2015 for such product and the product will be available for order soon.
