JinkoSolarJinkoSolar Holding has announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

In first quarter company’s total solar module shipments were 1,600 megawatts (“MW”), which includes 166 MW to be used in the Company’s downstream projects. Total solar module shipments decreased by 6.4% from 1,710 MW in the fourth quarter of 2015 and increased by 102.7% from 789 MW in the first quarter of 2015.

JinkoSolar’s revenues were RMB5.47 billion (US$847.8 million), representing a 10.0% decrease from the fourth quarter of 2015 and an increase of 98.8% from the first quarter of 2015. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had connected 1,007 MW worth of solar power projects.

Net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.’s ordinary shareholders was RMB313.3 million (US$48.6 million), compared to RMB349.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and RMB51.0 million in the first quarter of 2015.

Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar’s Chief Executive Officer said “We began the year very strongly with total module shipments reaching 1,600 MW, ranking us as the biggest module supplier among our peers during the first quarter,” he added “Next month marks our 10-year anniversary and I couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate this milestone. We began our journey from humble beginnings and sustainably built our way into a globally recognized brand having shipped a total of 13 GW to more than 1,700 customers in over 70 countries and regions since then.”

Chen also said “Global solar demand continues to grow as costs go down. China remains our biggest market with a number of big orders continuing to come in, a trend we believe will continue in the second quarter. Our market share in the US continued to expand. Although the ITC extension resulted in some projects being postponed, we are confident in our ability to hit our shipment targets to the US for the year with our overseas production facility providing extra flexibility and higher margins. The increasing recognition of our brand name is also generating great opportunities in exciting emerging markets such as Chile, Thailand and India.”
