i've got PRIVATELY HELD Kyocera International listed as a DIRECT competitor to LDK: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/co?s=LDK Kyocera International, has a subsidiary called Kyocera solar. read what hoovers says:"Kyocera International's Kyocera Solar subsidiary is one of the world's largest producers of photovoltaic solar cells." http://www.hoovers.com/kyocera-international/--ID__43608--/free-co-factsheet.xhtml here's what yahoo says: http://biz.yahoo.com/ic/46/46112.html "Kyocera Solar turns daylight into nightlights. A subsidiary of Kyocera International, the company develops and sells solar-powered electric systems used to shed light on such dark spots as rural homes, recreational vehicle sites, remote telecom and pipeline monitoring equipment, and traffic signal locations. Kyocera Solar sells integrated system packages directly to industrial users (product manufacturers, utilities, and corporate and government entities); it also provides products and support to a global network of more than 1,500 distributors and dealers, mostly in the US. The company has international operations in Brazil and Australia."
IF Kyocera a silicon wafer manufacturer, which i haven't verified, acquiring STP would be a good fit.
