Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “JinkoSolar’s growth story continues to progress strongly and I couldn’t be prouder of the very significant expansion of our expected shipments and total revenues during the quarter. 2019 marked a significant milestone in our corporate history in which we successfully completed our transformation into one of the most competitive solar manufacturers in the world. The efficient execution of our strategy throughout the second half of the year allowed us to rapidly transition our operations and facilities from poly to mono production and steadily increase the proportion of products made through our fully integrated manufacturing process. Both domestic and overseas demand for our mono products remains incredibly strong, which leaves us even more confident in reiterating our outlook for 2020 where solar module shipments are expected to be in the range of 18-20 GW, an approximately 35% year-over-year increase. We remain fully committed to driving growth in this new era of grid parity and delivering long-term sustainable value to our shareholders.”
