REC Silicon - Third quarter 2016 results

Related content

Fornebu, Norway - November 2, 2016: REC Silicon ASA (REC Silicon) reported third quarter revenues of USD 50.9 million, compared to USD 71.1 million in the previous quarter. The lower revenues are primarily a result of the disruption of the solar grade polysilicon market due to the expiration of the 2015 feed in tariffs in China, which affected the entire value chain. The ongoing solar trade war between the US and China also continues to restrict REC Silicon's access to polysilicon markets in China. The corresponding EBITDA during the third quarter was a loss of USD 7.9 million compared to a loss of USD 14.3 million in the previous quarter.

The company also reported a September 30, 2016 cash balance of USD 86.8 million.  

Q3 polysilicon sales of 1,775 MT were in line with guidance given in the September 23, 2016 Trading Update.  Finished goods inventory increased by 2,132 MT during the third quarter.  

Silicon gas sales volumes increased to 772 MT compared to 610 MT in the prior quarter.

In order to maintain liquidity and manage inventory, the company is announcing additional cost cutting initiatives and has reduced production capacity utilization to approximately 50% at the Moses Lake facility.  As part of the cost cutting initiatives, the company is announcing a reduction in headcount of approximately 70 employees.  "We have been successful in maintaining sufficient liquidity during this period of market disruption. Because of our efforts to control costs, I expect REC Silicon to remain a low cost leader in the polysilicon industry, even at reduced production rates." said Tore Torvund, CEO.

The Yulin joint venture plant remains on target for start-up in the second half of 2017.  With regard to the company's joint venture payment obligations, the relevant agreements permit deferral of the $15 million second capital contribution until at least July 2017, and negotiations are underway with the joint venture partner to defer the company's second and third capital contributions, totaling $169 million, beyond 2018.  Without a resolution to the trade war and if REC is unable to make its contributions, the agreements also permit the company to forego making its remaining contributions, in which case, its equity position in the joint venture would be diluted accordingly.
