"Despite the continued challenging market conditions in the second quarter, we managed to keep our growing momentum as we increased module shipment volumes by 13.7% over the previous quarter and achieved a gross margin of 4.6%," commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.

"We further expanded our market share in the second quarter, which was primarily attributable to our deep understanding of the market trend and effective implementation of our global sales strategies. Europe continued to be our largest market in the second quarter due to the pull-in demand before the feed-in-tariff adjustments in Germany. In the second quarter, the U.S. market continued to show solid demand across all segments. In China, demand started to pick up as the installation of utility scale projects in northwestern China and the Golden Sun Program gradually accelerated. We expect to see a significant increase of demand in China in the second half of this year, especially from September to November."

"We have also achieved further cost reductions as we continued to promote new manufacturing techniques and improve our operating efficiency. We are confident to bring non-polysilicon cost down to below US$0.50 per watt by the end of this year," Mr. Miao continued.

"In addition to the challenges from feed-in-tariff adjustments, excessive module supply and the ongoing anti-dumping and countervailing investigations in the U.S., the anticipated anti-dumping investigation in the EU has brought more pressure and uncertainties to the solar industry. We will continue to work closely with our friends and partners to protect the industry and remain committed to providing our customers with high quality products," Mr. Miao concluded.

Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Total Net Revenues

Total net revenues were RMB 3,103.5 million (US$488.5 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to RMB 3,148.5 million in the first quarter of 2012 and RMB 4,398.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. PV module shipment in the second quarter of 2012 increased by 13.7% from the first quarter of 2012. The contribution to total net revenues from increased shipment in this quarter was offset by an industry-wide decline in the average selling prices of PV modules.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit was RMB 141.5 million (US$22.3 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to RMB 245.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 and RMB 970.1 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Gross margin was 4.6% in the second quarter of 2012, compared to 7.8% in the first quarter of 2012 and 22.1% in the second quarter of 2011.The sequential decrease in gross margin was primarily due to an industry-wide decline in the average selling prices of PV modules, which was partially offset by a decline in prices of polysilicon and auxiliary materials and our continuous efforts in reducing processing cost.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were RMB 468.2 million (US$73.7 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to RMB 380.0 million in the first quarter of 2012 and RMB 443.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase in operating expenses from the previous quarter was mainly due to the increased selling expenses attributable to the growth in PV module shipment and an increase in overseas freight expenses per unit.

Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 15.1% in the second quarter of 2012, compared to 12.1% in the first quarter of 2012 and 10.1% in the second quarter of 2011.

Operating Loss and Margin

Operating loss was RMB 326.7 million (US$51.4 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to operating loss of RMB 134.7 million in the first quarter of 2012 and operating income of RMB 526.4 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Operating margin was negative 10.5% in the second quarter of 2012, compared to a negative operating margin of 4.3% in the first quarter of 2012 and a positive operating margin of 12.0% in the second quarter of 2011.

Interest Expense

Interest expense was RMB 229.3 million (US$36.1 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to RMB 202.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and RMB 157.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase in interest expense was mainly attributable to the RMB1.5 billion medium-term notes issued by Yingli Energy (China) Company Limited, an operating subsidiary of the Company, in May 2012. The weighted average interest rate for the Company's borrowings was 6.34% in the second quarter of 2012, compared to 6.23% in the first quarter of 2012.

Foreign Currency Exchange Loss (Gain)

Foreign currency exchange loss was RMB 183.7 million (US$28.9 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to a foreign currency exchange gain of RMB 26.3 million in the first quarter of 2012 and a foreign currency exchange gain of RMB 35.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. Given that the Company's Euro-denominated assets and liabilities are in a net asset position, the foreign currency exchange loss was mainly due to the depreciation of the Euro against the RMB.

Income Tax Benefit (Expense)

Income tax benefit was RMB 102.3 million (US$16.1 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to income tax benefit of RMB 11.4 million in the first quarter of 2012 and income tax expense of RMB 73.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. The income tax benefit in the second quarter of 2012 was mainly the result of a deferred tax benefit recognized in connection with the net losses incurred in the quarter.

Net Income (Loss)

Net loss was RMB 573.0 million (US$90.2 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to net loss of RMB 283.2 million in the first quarter of 2012 and net income of RMB 375.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. Loss per ordinary share and per ADS was RMB 3.66 (US$0.58), compared to RMB 1.82 in the first quarter of 2012 and diluted earnings per ordinary share and ADS of RMB 2.34 in the second quarter of 2011.

On an adjusted non-GAAP basis, net loss was RMB 551.2 million (US$86.8 million) in the second quarter of 2012, compared to net loss of RMB 239.5 million in the first quarter of 2012 and net income of RMB 354.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. Adjusted non-GAAP loss per ordinary share and per ADS was RMB 3.52 (US$0.55), compared to RMB 1.54 in the first quarter of 2012 and adjusted non-GAAP diluted earnings per ordinary share and per ADS of RMB 2.21 in the second quarter of 2011.
