First Solar IPO in many a Month Emerges

JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (JKS) initial public offering of 5,835,000 American depositary shares ("ADSs"), each representing four (4) ordinary shares of the Company, was priced at $11.00 per ADS on Friday of last week.

The IPO raised the company roughly $60 million gross, with a post money market cap of approximately $240 million.

For detailed information and financials refer to link below:

Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC acted as sole global coordinator and sole book runner, and Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., Roth Capital Partners, LLC, and Collins Stewart LLC acted as co-managers for this offering.

Jinko Solar is a vertically integrated company – which means they are involved in ALL steps of the manufacturing process: from raw silicon, to molded silicon ingot, to silicon wafer, to solar cell and final integration into panels.

By integrating all phases of the production, the company will have the opportunity to better balance each phase’s margins which may result in overall higher gross margins and greater profits. At the current time the overwhelming majority of solar stocks are underperforming the general market and have been doing so for quite awhile. The technically strongest solar stocks currently are: JA Solar Holdings (JASO), Real Goods Solar, Inc. (RSOL) and ReneSola, Ltd. (SOL). It is interesting to note that 2 of the 3 are vertically integrated Chinese companies (JASO and SOL) similar to JinkoSolar and one is a U.S integrator (RSOL) that may be benefiting from current lower panel prices.
