  • 7) Why the new CEO is not improving the financial of Solarone as he promised after the earning results of Q1/2014

    Combs response:
    There is no way to judge this public financial reports have not been made other than our 1Q report just a few weeks after he joined. Our 2Q report later in August will positively surprise investors. Give him some time. I think you will see conditions improve beginning in the Q2.

  • Mexico PV panels will have larger profit margin for HSOL because Mexico does not have tariff on imported solar panels as US and EU. The new shortage of solar panels also should lift the gross margin above 30%

  • From transcript of conference call of Q1:

    "As a new CEO , my goal for this company is straightforward. I intend to lead an aggressive transformation and turnaround of Hanwha SolarOne, achieving a tier 1 position in the industry within two years.

    I led the very large and competitive IT solutions business while at Samsung, a similar accomplishment and I see no reason why success cannot be achieved here.

    As most of you understand, product differentiation in solar are not great. So we must differentiate ourselves through focus and dedication. In other words, Hanwha SolarOne will define its own strength.

    With this initiative, a systematic management discipline and conduct our operations with a sense of urgency. We will achieve operational excellence and therefore better profitability through a number of areas. Cost reduction can be achieved in areas other than materials.

    Some areas targeted for improvement include manufacturing and engineering, driven by automation. Supply chain management and logistics. For example, global material sourcing will improve the processing leverage in corporation with Q CELL. Inventory management, leading to [indiscernible] and the reduced quantities from made to order manufacturing

  • 1) There are 3 articles in past 3 days that are confirming by the email that goodwin_da received from Combs about "positively surprising investors for Q2 results"

    2) It is hard to believe that 2 weeks before a negative earning of HSOL Q2 , Hanwha will state in 3 different articles that its Solar group is profitable.

  • Former Florida Rep. Allen West declared President Obama an Islamist who is intentionally working against the security of the United States.

    “The only plausible explanation for many actions taken by President Obama and his administration is that they are working counter to the security of the United States of America,” the former Florida congressman and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel wrote in the post published Wednesday.

    Among six example he gives to back up his point is Obama’s decision to release of five Taliban in exchange for Sgt. Bergdahl in May, providing weapons of support to the Egyptian government led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and negotiating with Hamas.

    He also writes at length about Obama’s recent decision to lift a ban on Libyan’s attending U.S. flight schools and studying nuclear science, which had been in place since 1983.

  • Obama’s Crackdown On For-Profit Colleges Will Reduce Educational Opportunities
    8/12/2014

    One of the best ways to predict the effect of a proposal for more bureaucracy in Washington is to consider the name its proponents give it. Usually, the actual results of their program will be the exact opposite of whatever its title implies. The “Affordable Care Act,” for instance, increased premiums by an average of 49 percent. The “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act” wasted half a trillion dollars and certainly didn’t produce a recovery.

    Now we have a new Orwellian euphemism to add to the list: the 841 page “gainful employment” regulation, which will kill jobs and destroy opportunities for working adults to advance in their careers.

    With the gainful employment regulation, the Department of Education would disqualify any program offered by a for-profit college from accepting student loans if its graduates, on average, have monthly student loan payments in excess of 8 percent of their monthly income. The regulation also sets a threshold on the percentage of students who can default on their loans.

    While the regulation would also apply to certificate programs offered by non-profit institutions, it would apply to all programs – from certificate through doctoral – offered by for-profit schools.

  • Education Department Launches Review of the University of Phoenix

    Education Dept. Does Damage Control After Rogue Decimal Point Wreaks Havoc on Aid Applications

    March 18, 2014

    Last week, the U.S. Education Department began a regularly scheduled review of the Apollo Education Group, the publicly traded company that owns and operates the University of Phoenix. Federal authorities began examining how Apollo distributed federal student-aid dollars, whether it returned funds associated with students no longer enrolled, and how it reported on-campus crimes during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years.

    While the review is a standard practice—the agency conducted more than 300 similar reviews last year—it comes at a time of increased scrutiny and regulatory activity directed at the for-profit college sector. The volume of financial aid collected by Apollo and the role that financial-aid funds play in the company's balance sheet also significantly raise the stakes of this review.

    Public interest in the for-profit industry has grown as more Americans have pursued nontraditional paths to a college education. As enrollment has grown, state and federal investigators have examined recruiting and marketing practices as well as academic activities at a number of for-profit schools. In 2012, a U.S. Senate investigation found widespread evidence that for-profit schools often appear to prioritize business concerns over educational quality or student progress, with most producing low graduation rates but double-digit profit margins for publicly traded

  • Hanwha SolarOne to Supply 50-Megawatt Panels to China’s Baotou

    By Bloomberg News Aug 13, 2014

    Hanwha SolarOne Co. (HSOL), the photovoltaic manufacturing unit of South Korea’s Hanwha Group, agreed to supply 50 megawatts of solar panels to Baotou Shansheng New Energy Co.

    Shipments beginning earlier this month are expected to be completed by mid-September, Hanwha SolarOne said today in a statement. The panels will be used for ground-mounted projects in Hohhot and Baotou in China’s northern region of Inner Mongolia.

    The company is seeing an increase in business opportunities beginning this quarter, Chief Financial Officer Jay Seo said in the statement.

  • Group speeds up business restructuring.
    Hanwha Solar turned a profit this year after years of struggle with losses.

    2014-08-14
    By Park Jin-hai

    This year, it sold its building material firm, Hanwha L&C, as well as pharmaceutical unit DreamPharma.

    Hanwha also aims to strengthen its global competitiveness by establishing a vertical business structure in the solar and petrochemical sectors.

    On Aug. 8, the company bought a 40 percent stake in Australian solar energy retailer Empyreal. With the acquisition, it expects to enter the Australian solar energy market and expand its business to energy monitoring and saving businesses as well.

    The company is looking at acquiring other solar energy firms in Japan, Germany and the Middle East to firmly establish its market share in the area, where it has turned a profit this year after years of struggle with losses.

    To secure the funds that are needed for business restructuring, Hanwha Chemical issued 350 billion won in global depositary receipts in April. In June, Hanwha E&C also increased its capital by 400 billion won by issuing preferred shares.

    In the process, Hanwha E&C's debt ratio went down 150 percent and Hanwha Chemical's debt ratio was cut by 18 percent, improving its financial structure

    Hanwha sets sights on acquisitions

    Group expanding in chemicals and solar power businesses. “We want to solidify our status in the solar power business, which is now delivering profits.”

    Aug 14,2014

    Hanwha Chemical has been trying to increase its liquidity by issuing $340 million worth of global depository receipts in April and sold its pharmacy affiliate Dream Pharma to the U.S.-based multinational pharmaceutical company Alvogen for 194.5 billion won last week.

    “By improving our financial health, we are considering additional M&As in order to boost our petrochemical business,” Hanwha said.

    In its solar power business, Hanwha Group acquired a 40 percent stake of Australia-based residential solar power provider Empyreal last week.

    Through this acquisition, Hanwha said it will take over the company’s market in Australia and look to expand into energy-saving businesses.

    “We are actively reviewing acquiring solar power retailers in Japan, Germany and the Middle East, while participating in solar power plant operation,” the group said. “We want to solidify our status in the solar power business, which is now delivering profits.”

    Hanwha said that it is also looking to purchase foreign companies in automobile or film materials in a bid to makes its affiliate Hanwha Advanced Materials more competitive.

    The conglomerate in June sold Hanwha L&C’s construction materials unit to Morgan Stanley Private Equity for 300 billion won, and its existing materials unit changed its name to Hanwha Advanced Materials.

    “Hanwha Advanced Materials is looking to expand its business by developing carbon-based composite materials for automobiles, while having nanoprinting and coating technology for electronic materials,” the group said.

  • Hanwha streamlines business portfolio

    Published : 2014-08-13 21:33
    Updated : 2014-08-13 21:33

    Hanwha Group, the nation’s 10th-largest conglomerate by assets, said Wednesday that Hanwha Chemical, its flagship affiliate, signed a deal to take over KPX Fine Chemical as part of efforts to restructure its business portfolio.

    The group did not reveal the size of the deal.

    KPX Fine Chemical, a local mid-sized chemical goods manufacturer, has supplied toluene diisocyanate and its derivatives, which are used in products such as cars, furniture and footwear, for almost three decades.

    “The group sought the deal to strengthen its competitiveness in the petrochemical sector,” Hanwha said in a statement. “We will continue to drive our business portfolio restructuring to realize the vision to become a world-leading company in each core sector by 2020.”

    Petrochemicals are one of Hanwha’s three areas of core competence. The other two are its solar power generation business and advanced materials manufacturing.

    In the field of solar energy, Hanwha has built a vertically integrated business portfolio that has improved its efficiency, the company said.

    To expand its worldwide reach, Hanwha on Aug. 8 acquired a 40 percent stake in Queensland-based Empyreal Energy with the aim to enter Australia’s home-based solar power retail market.

    In 2012, the group took over Germany-based Q-Cell, the world’s largest solar cell maker. The group said it was considering more M&As in the solar energy sector to strengthen its market leadership in target countries such as Japan, Germany, and the Middle East.
