Expected to have positive impact on the Group’s FY2018 Results
SINGAPORE, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Mainboard-listed Sunpower Group Ltd. ("Sunpower" or the "Group"), an environmental protection solutions specialist with a strong focus on expanding into anti-pollution investment projects ("Green Investments" or "GI") which generates long-term intrinsic value in the form of recurring income and cash flows, is pleased to announce that it has signed another Manufacturing and Services ("M&S") contract worth RMB105.2 million from Xinjiang Xinte Crystalline Silicon High-tech Co., Ltd ("Xinjiang Xinte"), which brought its total contract value from Xinjiang Xinte to RMB185.2 million within one month.
Xinjiang Xinte is a subsidiary of TBEA Co Ltd, ("TBEA CO., LTD"), a provider of systematic solutions for the global energy industry. Xinjiang Xinte has been included into Group’s extensive list of reputable customers in the polysilicon industry since 2012, and the list also includes GCL-Poly, the largest polysilicon manufacturer and Tongwei Group. Sunpower will supply raw material towers and cold-hydraulic heat exchangers to Xinjiang Xinte’s high-purity polysilicon plant upgrading project. The equipment will be delivered in 2018, and will have a positive impact on the Group’s performance for the current financial year ending 31 December 2018 ("FY2018").
Mr. Guo Hong Xin, Executive Chairman of Sunpower, said, "Sunpower has built up a solid track record of delivering high-quality work, over a long span of over 20 years to a diverse group of customers in more than 15 industries. We are heartened to secure a total of RMB185.2 million from our repeat customer TBEA within the short span of a month, underscoring the strong confidence that TBEA has in us, which helps to push the Group’s M&S segment order book to a new record high. Moreover, we are pleased that our M&S business also has a proven track record of being able to deliver stable revenue growth with healthy margins."
Mr Guo added, "In addition, the Group has set its sights on developing its GI business for long-term recurring income and cashflows, given the huge market potential driven by China’s accelerating ‘green movement’ and supported by a de facto monopolistic business model of GI. With our technological expertise and management capability, Sunpower will work towards increasing the size of its GI project portfolio that has high net present value (NPV) and attractive double-digit project IRR, ultimately growing shareholder value over the long and medium term."
