First Solar Builds the Highest Efficiency Thin Film PV Cell on Record

First Solar, Inc. announced that it has set a world record for cadmium-telluride (CdTe) photovoltaic (PV) research cell conversion efficiency, achieving 21.0% efficiency certified at the Newport Corporation's Technology and Applications Center (TAC) PV Lab. The record-setting cell was constructed at the company's Perrysburg, Ohio manufacturing factory and Research & Development Center, using processes and materials designed for commercial-scale manufacturing. The record has been documented in the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) "Best Research Cell Efficiencies" reference chart. This certified result bests the previous CdTe record of 20.4% conversion efficiency, which was set by First Solar in February of 2014, and represents the seventh substantial update to CdTe record efficiency since 2011. The achievement also places First Solar's CdTe research cell efficiency above copper indium gallium diselenide based solar cells (CIGS) at 20.9%, and well above multicrystalline silicon (mSi), which peaked at 20.4% in 2004.

First Solar, Inc. Reports Consolidated Unaudited Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2014

First Solar, Inc. reported consolidated unaudited earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $544,353,000 against $519,760,000 a year ago. Operating income was $1,908,000 against $39,096,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $2,362,000 against $41,062,000 a year ago. Net income was $4,528,000 against $33,598,000 a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $0.04 against $0.37 a year ago. Cash flows from operations were $118 million. For the six months, the company reported net sales of $1,494,511,000 against $1,274,965,000 a year ago. Operating income was $141,182,000 against $100,303,000 a year ago. Income before income taxes was $143,222,000 against $107,251,000 a year ago. Net income was $116,535,000 against $92,740,000 a year ago. Diluted earnings per share were $1.14 against 1.03 a year ago. The company provided earnings guidance for the full year 2014. For the year, earnings per share guidance of $2.40 to $2.80 and operating cash flow guidance of $300 to $500 million. This guidance is highly dependent on, among other factors, the construction progress and sales process related to certain utility scale power plants. Any changes in expected timing of these activities would defer earnings and operating cash flow to subsequent fiscal periods and result in a substantial impact on these guidance targets.
