Commentary

“We are pleased to report that the second quarter of 2017 was a solid quarter with new records on both polysilicon production volume and external sales volume. During the quarter, we produced 4,993 MT of polysilicon and sold 4,497 MT to external customers. We also conducted various experiments to improve polysilicon quality, particularly for the mono-crystalline grade polysilicon, which had a slight impact to overall production cost and volume. However, we are seeing meaningful quality improvements. Production volume as well as shipment of mono-crystalline quality polysilicon hit a record high in June,” said Dr. Gongda Yao, Chief Executive Officer of Daqo New Energy.

“Due to downstream customer inventory management at the end of the first quarter, ASP fell in April, but ASP started to recover in May. Demand and pricing improved throughout the second quarter, with the ASP in June approximately 15% higher than that in April. So far in the third quarter, customer demand has remained robust with pricing continuing to improve.”

“In terms of the PV end market, China installed 24.4 GW of solar PV in the first half of 2017, representing a new record high and a 9% increase from the first half of 2016. For the full year of 2017, China’s annual PV installation forecast is currently expected to exceed 35GW. Based on discussions with our customers, we believe that China’s PV market demand continues to be strong, driven by top-runner projects as well as distributed generation. Globally, the U.S. and Indian markets are also seeing strong PV product demand. Starting in late July, we have seen a fairly significant shortage of polysilicon in the China market and continued improvements in polysilicon pricing. With a much stronger than expected solar PV installations in China, the annual total global solar installation in 2017 is likely to exceed 80 GW for the first time ever. “

“During the second quarter of 2017, the company generated $12.1 million in net income attributable to Daqo New Energy shareholders and $29.8 million in EBITDA with an EBITDA margin of 39.2%. In particular, our operating cash flow remains strong. In the first half of 2017, we generated $73.6 million in net cash provided by operating activities.”

“Going forward, we will continue our efforts to improve quality throughout the year. With our high product quality and stable supply capabilities, we continue to be a supplier of choice with strong demand for our high quality polysilicon from our diverse customer base.”

Outlook and Q3 2017 guidance

The Company’s annual maintenance for the Xinjiang polysilicon facility is scheduled for late September and October. The annual maintenance is anticipated to impact production volume by approximately two weeks. As a result, the Company expects to produce 4,200 MT to 4,500 MT of polysilicon and sell approximately 3,700 MT to 4,000 MT to external customers during the third quarter of 2017. The above external sales guidance excludes shipments of polysilicon to be used internally by our Chongqing solar wafer facility, which utilizes polysilicon for its wafer manufacturing operation. Wafer sales volume is expected to be approximately 25.0 million to 25.5 million pieces in the third quarter of 2017.

This outlook reflects our current and preliminary view as of the date of this press release and may be subject to change. Our ability to achieve these projections is subject to risks and uncertainties. See “Safe Harbor Statement” at the end of this press release.

Second Quarter 2017 Results

As of June 30, 2017, the accounts receivable balance was $3.8 million, compared to $13.1 million as of March 31, 2017. As of June 30, 2017, the notes receivable balance was $10.5 million, compared to $11.7 million as of March 31, 2017. As of June 30, 2017, total borrowings were $219.3 million, of which $123.1 million were long-term borrowings, compared to total borrowings of $236.0 million, including $129.2 million long-term borrowings, as of March 31, 2017.

Cash Flows

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net cash provided by operating activities was $73.6 million, increased from $66.6 million in the same period of 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net cash used in investing activities was $36.0 million, compared to $37.6 million in the same period of 2016. The net cash used in investing activities in 2017 was primarily related to the capital expenditure of Xinjiang Phase 3A polysilicon projects.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, net cash used in financing activities was $23.4 million, compared to net cash used in financing activities of $13.5 million in the same period of 2016. The increase was primarily due to repayment of related parties loans.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Daqo New Energy’s consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“US GAAP”), the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted for certain items from the most directly comparable GAAP measures including non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA margin; adjusted net income attributable to Daqo New Energy Corp. shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS. Management believes that each of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, enabling them to better assess changes in key elements of the Company’s results of operations across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of certain items as described below. Thus, management believes that, used in conjunction with US GAAP financial measures, these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with meaningful supplemental information to assess the Company’s operating results in a manner that is focused on its ongoing, core operating performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to assess the business, its financial performance, current and historical results, as well as for strategic decision-making and forecasting future results. Given management’s use of these non-GAAP measures, the Company believes these measures are important to investors in understanding the Company’s operating results as seen through the eyes of management. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with US GAAP or intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP; the non-GAAP measures should be reviewed together with the US GAAP measures and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin includes adjustments for costs related to the non-operational polysilicon assets in Chongqing. Such costs mainly consist of non-cash depreciation costs, as well as utilities and maintenance costs associated with the temporarily idle polysilicon machinery and equipment, which will be or are in the process of being relocated to the Company’s Xinjiang polysilicon manufacturing facility. The Company expects a majority of these costs, such as depreciation, will continue to occur as part of the production cost at the Xinjiang facilities subsequent to the completion of the relocation plan. Once these assets are placed back in service, the Company will remove this adjustment from the non-GAAP reconciling item. The Company also uses EBITDA, which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and EBITDA margin, which represents the proportion of EBITDA in revenues. Adjusted net income attributable to Daqo New Energy Corp. shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS exclude costs related to the non-operational polysilicon assets in Chongqing as described above. Adjusted net income attributable to Daqo New Energy Corp. shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS also exclude costs related to share-based compensation. Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, management excludes this item from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that this adjustment for share-based compensation provides investors with a basis to measure the company’s core performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without the period-to-period variability created by share-based compensation.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable US GAAP measures is presented later in this document.
