October 15 (Renewables Now) - China Singyes Solar Technologies Holdings Ltd (HKG:0750) last week reported a net attributable loss to owners of the company of CNY 468 million (USD 66.2m/EUR 60m) in the first half of 2019, versus a profit of CNY 228.5 million a year before.

The company is involved in the design and construction of curtain walls and building integrated solar systems, as well as in the production of solar photovoltaic (PV) materials and solar thermal products. In a bourse filing on Thursday, it explained that its solar business suffered due to the suspension or delay of many engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects as the tightening of the lending environment and its senior note default affected its ability to secure new financing.

The table below contains more details about the company’s first-half performance.
