    XINYU CITY, China and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LDK Solar Co., Ltd. ("LDK Solar") (NYSE: LDK), a leading vertically integrated manufacturer of photovoltaic products, today announced that the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) stated that the wafer supply contracts entered into in October 2007 and June 2008 between LDK Solar and Canadian Solar (CSI) and its China-based subsidiary affiliate are valid and effective through the duration and at terms and conditions related to quantities and prices set forth therein.
