Hanwha SolarOne Announces Termination of At-The-Market Offering of American Depositary Shares

SHANGHAI, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (the "Company", or "Hanwha SolarOne"), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, announced that the Company's at-the-market offering of American Depositary Shares, each representing five ordinary shares of par value US$0.0001 per share, (the "ADSs"), was terminated on January 29, 2014 (the "ATM Offering").

Upon the termination of the ATM Offering, the Company had sold 6,716,966 of its ADSs at an average price of US$3.20 per ADS, raising approximately US$21.5 million in gross proceeds. The ADSs were offered through Credit Suisse as sales agent. The Company received net proceeds of approximately US$21.0 million from the offering after deducting the sales agent's commissions and estimated offering expenses.

Jay Seo, the chief financial officer of Hanwha SolarOne, commented, "The Company maintained a conservative trading posture throughout the ATM Offering, in light of the lower stock price, potential shareholder dilution and availability of other financing options."

The ADSs were offered under the Company's existing shelf registration statement, which became effective on November 13, 2013. A prospectus supplement and a related base prospectus describing the terms of the ATM Offering were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Investors are advised to read the prospectus supplement and the related base prospectus (including documents incorporated by reference therein) for more complete information about the Company and the ATM Offering.
