("Hanwha Q CELLS" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: HQCL), a global leading photovoltaic manufacturer of high-performance, high-quality solar modules, today reported its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018. The Company will not be hosting a conference call to discuss these results.

    *Third Quarter 2018 Highlights*

    · Net revenues were $559.3 million, compared with $518.4 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $543.0 million in the third quarter of 2017.
    · Gross margin was -6.3%, compared with 14.0% in the second quarter of 2018 and 11.6% in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding certain one-time effects, gross margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 13.0%.
    · Operating loss was $107.0 million, compared with an operating income of $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 and operating income of $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding certain one-time effects, operating income for the third quarter of 2018 was $17.9 million.
    · Net loss attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders was $164.6 million, compared with net loss of $41.3 million in the second quarter of 2018 and net income of $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding certain one-time effects, net loss attributable to the Company's ordinary shareholders for the third quarter of 2018 was $39.7 million. Excluding these one-time effects as well as foreign exchange losses, net income attributable to Company's ordinary shareholders for the third quarter of 2018 was $2.7 million.
    · Loss per fully diluted American Depositary Share ("ADS" and each ADS represents 50 of the Company's ordinary shares) was $1.98, compared with loss per fully diluted ADS of $0.50 in the second quarter of 2018 and income per fully diluted ADS of $0.06 in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding certain one-time effects, loss per fully diluted American Depositary Share for the third quarter of 2018 was $0.48.

    *Third Quarter 2018 Results of Operations*

    Net Revenues

    · Total net revenues were $559.3 million, up 7.9% from $518.4 million in the second quarter of 2018 and up 3.0% from $543.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. This was due to increased shipment volume, which mitigated the effects of declining ASPs, and an increase in demand for the Company's premium product, the Q.PEAK DUO, which was associated to the Company increasing and expanding its sales network within key regions.

    Gross Profit and Margin

    · Gross loss in the third quarter of 2018 was $35.3 million, compared to a gross profit of $72.6 million in the second quarter of 2018 and a gross profit of $63.2 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding a $108.2 million one-time loss associated with the discontinuation of the Company's China-based ingot manufacturing operations in September, gross profit for the third quarter of 2018 was $72.9 million. The Company concluded that it would be in its best interest to discontinue unprofitable operations and focus on its core business – the manufacturing of cells and modules. This decision was based on the fact that the current scale of ingot operations would preclude the Company from being competitive on a global scale, and while the discontinuation of ingot production resulted in a one-time loss, the Company believes it will improve long-term profitability by allowing us to focus its core competencies.
    · Gross margin in the third quarter of 2018 was -6.3%, compared with 14.0% in the second quarter of 2018 and 11.6% in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding the one-time effects related to the discontinuation of ingot manufacturing operations, gross margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 13.0%.

    Results of Operations and Operating Margin

    · Loss from operations in the third quarter of 2018 was $107.0 million, compared with income from operations of $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding the one-time effects related to the discontinuation of ingot manufacturing operations as well as a $16.7 million allowance for bad debt on certain overdue receivables, operating income for the third quarter of 2018 was $17.9 million.
    · Operating margin in the third quarter of 2018 was -19.1%, compared with 0.9% in the second quarter of 2018 and 2.0% in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding the one-time effects related to the discontinuation of ingot manufacturing operations and to certain overdue receivables, operating margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 3.2%.
    · Total operating expenses were $71.7 million in the third quarter of 2018, up 5.8% from $67.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 and up 36.3% from $52.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding the one-time effects related to certain overdue receivables, total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2018 were $55.0 million.
    · Selling and marketing expenses were $37.5 million in the third quarter of 2018, down 10.7% from $42.0 million in the second quarter of 2018 and up 22.5% from $30.6 million in the third quarter of 2017.
    · General and administrative expenses were $30.0 million in the third quarter of 2018, up 42.9% from $21.0 million in the second quarter of 2018 and up 72.4% from $17.4 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding the one-time effects related to certain overdue receivables, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2018 were $13.3 million.
    · Research and development expenses were $4.2 million in the third quarter of 2018, down 12.5% from $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 and down 8.7% from $4.6 million in the third quarter of 2017.

    Net Interest Expense

    · Net interest expense was $14.1 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared with $15.2 million in the second quarter of 2018 and $10.0 million in the third quarter of 2017.

    Foreign Currency Exchange Gain (Loss)

    · Foreign currency exchange loss was $42.4 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared with a loss of $37.8 million in the second quarter of 2018 and a gain of $7.3 million in the third quarter of 2017. This was mainly due to a weak Turkish lira in relation to the U.S. dollar, causing a foreign currency exchange loss both in the second and third quarters.

    Gain (loss) on Change in Fair Value of Derivative Contracts

    · Loss on change in fair value of derivative contracts was $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to a gain of $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2018 and a loss of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Excluding certain one-time effects, loss per fully diluted American Depositary Share for the third quarter of 2018 was $0.48.

    Cyber security refers to the protection of internet-connected systems, including hardware, software, and data, from cyber-attacks.  All the data, including electronic records and patient records, available on any device are a target for cyber-attacks. Data breach is a major concern, as several instances of data thefts and data breach have occurred since the introduction of connected medical devices technology. In the U.S., FDA’s recently released final guidance on the post-market management of cyber security in medical devices is a part of the FDA’s constant efforts to ensure safety and efficacy of medical devices, as they encounter cyber threats, at all stages in the devices’ lifecycle. Healthcare is vulnerable due to the historic lack of investments for cyber security, vulnerabilities in existing technology, and staff behavior. It has become increasingly clear that cyber security is a risk factor for healthcare data. Attacks can compromise not only networks and data but also threaten applications and services supporting critical patient care systems.

    Today, 30 November, the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Latvenergo Group for the nine months of 2018 are published. In the nine months of 2018, Latvenergo Group's revenue amounts to EUR 642.0 million, which is 5% less than in the same period last year. EBITDA of the Group is EUR 270.2 million, which is 10% less than in the previous year. The amount of electricity generated by the Group has remained at the prior year's level and reached 4,052 GWh (gigawatt hours). The Riga CHPPs have played an indispensable role in the reporting period, as generation at the Riga CHPPs was able to make up for the demand for electricity during the prolonged downtime of the Nordbalt cable. In October 2018, the Group started natural gas trade in Lithuania, which means that Latvenergo operates in all market segments in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

    Riga, 2018-11-30 14:30 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 9 months of 2018 are characterised by a significant and unexpected increase in electricity prices across Europe, particularly in the Nordic countries. The price of electricity at the electricity exchange NordPool increased by 47% on average, and in the Baltics prices increased by almost 40% (38% in Latvia), compared to the corresponding period last year. This was mainly due to the dry and warm weather throughout Europe, lower water levels at the Scandinavian hydropower reservoirs, smaller output at wind farms as well as rising prices of CO2 emission allowances and raw materials. In these circumstances, the role of the Riga CHPPs in the market was particularly important. If the Riga CHPPs were not available for generation in Latvia, we would have to use higher-cost electricity generation sources to satisfy the demand, such as a lower-efficiency gas plant in Lithuania, coal plants in Poland or other capacities designed to ensure the stability of the power system.

    Due to an efficient response to the situation in the electricity market, the electricity output by the Riga CHPPs in the reporting period is 71% higher than last year and amounts to 1,844 GWh. In turn, the amount of electricity generated by the Daugava HPPs decreased by 27% compared to the same period last year and amounts to 2,170 GWh. The reduction of the output at the Daugava HPPs was affected by lower water inflow in the river Daugava compared to last year. More than half of the Group's total electricity output of 4,052 GWh was generated from renewable energy sources.

    The amount of thermal energy generated in the nine months of 2018 is 14% less compared to the same period last year reaching 1,545 GWh. The decrease was influenced by increasing competition with new heat generators in the Riga thermal energy market.

    In the reporting period, a total of 5 TWh of electricity was sold to Baltic retail customers. Approximately 1/3 of the total retail electricity trade or 1.8 TWh was sold to customers outside Latvia. In October, we also started natural gas trade in Lithuania, thus we are already operating in all segments of the market in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The natural gas sales of Latvenergo Group and the number of customers continued to grow in the reporting period. As of the end of the reporting period, the total number of natural gas customers exceeds 300. In the reporting period, the amount of natural gas used for both operating consumption and trade reached 4.8 TWh.

    In line with the strategic goals of the Group to offer new products and services, retail sales activities involving additional products continued in the Baltic states during the reporting period. In Q3 2018, the trade of Elektrum Solārais (Elektrum Solar) was launched in Estonia. In the reporting period, solar panels were installed for about 50 customers in the Baltics. The number of Elektrum Apdrošināts (Elektrum Insured) customers also continues to grow and by the end of the reporting period it reached more than 36 thousand.

    Latvenergo Group’s revenue in the nine months of 2018 decreased by 5% and amounts to EUR 642.0 million. EBITDA decreased by 10%, reaching EUR 270.2 million. The Group’s profit amounts to EUR 83.1 million. The results were negatively impacted by smaller electricity generation at the Daugava HPPs and higher prices of electricity and CO2 emission allowances.

    In the nine months of 2018, the total amount of Latvenergo Group’s investments decreased by 5% compared to the corresponding period last year and reached EUR 158.5 million. 80% of overall investments was made in the modernisation of the power networks in order to ensure a higher level of quality and security of the services. EUR 16.9 million was invested in the reconstruction of hydropower units of Daugava HPPs, which will ensure their operation for the next 40 years. The investments in the Kurzeme Ring project, which significantly increases the security of energy supply in Kurzeme region and Latvia as a whole, amounted to EUR 184.6 million by the end of the reporting period, while the reconstruction of substations and construction works continued in several 330 kV transmission lines. The Third Estonia–Latvia power transmission network interconnection project continues as well. This project is of major significance for the future electricity transmission infrastructure of the whole Baltic region.

    Shortly after the end of the reporting period, on 10 October, Latvenergo AS received the most valuable Latvian company award within TOP 101 Most Valuable Companies of Latvia, jointly created by Prudentia and Nasdaq Riga, for the 11^th time in total and for the 10^th time in a row. The Group also maintained its leading position among the Baltic states, ranking third on the list of TOP 10 Baltic Most Valuable Enterprises, ahead of the energy companies from Estonia and Lithuania.

    The unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements of Latvenergo Group for 2018 will be published on 28 February 2019.
