Chinese solar module maker JinkoSolar Holding Co Ltd (NYSE:JKS) booked a second-quarter net attributable profit of CNY 66.2 million (USD 10.3m/EUR 8.7m), a 79.2% drop from a year ago mainly due to the impacts of convertible senior notes, the company said announcing its inaudited results.
Revenues fell by 6.2% year-on-year to CNY 7.93 billion as a result of a decrease in the shipment of solar modules. The company’s total shipments, including solar modules, cells and wafers, rose by 16.4% year-on-year to 5,203 MW.
"As prices along the supply chain remain high, but relatively stable, we see overall acceptance of price increases continuing well into the second half of the year. Demand for modules is gradually resuming, and our module production volume increased remarkably month-over-month in the third quarter", Xiande Li, JinkoSolar's chairman of the board and CEO, commented,

Third-quarter revenue is seen to stand at between USD 1.24 billion (EUR 1.05bn) and USD 1.37 billion. Gross margin for July-September is forecast to be within 12%-15%.
Full-year shipments, including modules, cells and wafers, are still expected to range between 25 GW and 30 GW.
