SPI 15 - Hanwha Q CELLS to Host Investor Meetings at Solar Power International

Solar Power International 2015, held at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, September 14-17, 2015

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 9, 2015 -- Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. ("Hanwha Q CELLS" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: HQCL), one of the world's largest photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, high-efficiency solar modules, will host investor meetings at Solar Power International 2015, held at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California, September 14-17, 2015. Representing the Company are Chairman and CEO, Mr. Seong-woo Nam; CFO, Mr. Jay Seo; and Mr. Sean Park, Senior Director Strategic Planning/IR. The Company will be located at Booth 2505.

Jay Seo, CFO commented, "We continue to see increased investor interest following the February merger with Q CELLS and from our improving financial results. A number of investor groups have been scheduled for management meetings at our booth, and we will also participate in investor forums off-site connected with the SPI exhibition. Our company is now one of the largest in the solar industry with cell and module capacity targeted at 4.3 GW by year end, and full year 2015 shipments forecasted at 3.2-3.4 GW. The US market has become increasingly important to the Company's success and more than one-third of our shipments were to North America during 2Q15. We previously announced a 1.5 GW module supply agreement with US-based NextEra Energy Resources, the world's largest producer of renewable energy. The agreement was the largest module supply contract to date in the solar industry."

Mr. Seo noted, "The remainder of 2015 looks bright as we expect accelerating shipments, improved profitability, and progress towards our aggressive expansion goals. The third quarter will be aided by a recent positive EUR45.9 million (US$51 million) arbitration settlement with the insolvency administrator related to the prior Q CELLS insolvency proceedings. The favorable arbitration outcome will have a positive effect on third quarter profit and be reflected as a one-time non-cash event on the income statement."

Featured Product



The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
