Gross profit in the second quarter of 2014 was $118.2 million, compared to $68.6 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $48.7 million in the second quarter of 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increase in gross profit was primarily due to higher module shipments, higher module average selling price ("ASP"), lower module manufacturing cost and higher revenue contribution from the Company's total solutions business.  Gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was 19.0%, compared to 14.7% in the first quarter of 2014 and 12.8% in the second quarter of 2013. 

Total operating expenses were $50.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 20.2% from $42.0 million in the first quarter of 2014 and 38.7% from $36.4 million in the second quarter of 2013.  

Selling expenses were $29.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 19.1% from $24.7 million in the first quarter of 2014 and 47.7% from $20.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increase in selling expenses was primarily due to higher labor costs and the increase in module shipments.

General and administrative expenses were $18.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 23.1% from $14.7 million in the first quarter of 2014 and35.0% from $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. The sequential increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher legal and consulting expenses as well as higher labor costs as a result of annual salary adjustments and an increase in headcount to support revenue growth. The year-over-year increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to the reversal of a bad debt expense as well as higher labor costs.

Research and development expenses were $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $3.0 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Operating margin was 10.9% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 5.7% in the first quarter of 2014 and 3.2% in the second quarter of 2013. 

Interest expense was $12.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $12.0 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. The sequential increase in interest expense was primarily due to higher bank borrowings as well as the fact that interest on the convertible senior notes issued in the first quarter of 2014 accrued for a full quarter.

Interest income in the second quarter of 2014 was $3.6 million, compared to $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2014 and $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. 

The Company recorded a loss on change in fair value of derivatives of $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to a loss on change in fair value of derivatives of $7.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 and a gain on change in fair value of derivatives of $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2013. Net foreign exchange gain in the second quarter of 2014 was $7.6 million compared to a net foreign exchange gain of $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 and a net foreign exchange loss of $20.5 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Income tax expense in the second quarter of 2014 was $8.3 million, compared to income tax expense of $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 and income tax benefit of $5.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Net income attributable to Canadian Solar in the second quarter of 2014 was $55.8 million, or $0.95 per diluted share, compared to net income of $3.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2014, and net loss of $12.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013.

Financial Condition

The Company had $788.3 million of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of June 30, 2014, compared to $781.0 million as of March 31, 2014.

Accounts receivable, net of allowance for doubtful accounts, at the end of the second quarter of 2014 were $382.8 million, compared to $343.7 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. Accounts receivable turnover was 62 days in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 71 days in the first quarter of 2014.

Inventories at the end of the second quarter of 2014 were $441.7 million, compared to $376.4 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. Inventory turnover was 77 days in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 74 days in the first quarter of 2014.

Accounts and notes payable at the end of the second quarter of 2014 were $756.2 million, compared to $665.0 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014.

Short-term borrowings at the end of the second quarter of 2014 were $876.3 million, compared to $801.4 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. Long-term debt at the end of the second quarter of 2014 was $150.1 million, compared to $163.5 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. Senior convertible notes totaled $150 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014, unchanged from the end of the first quarter of 2014.  Short-term borrowings and long-term debt directly related to utility-scale solar power projects totaled $250.6 million at the end of the second quarter of 2014.

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, remarked: "Our second quarter shipments and revenue came in above the high end of our guidance led by strong module demand out of Japan, Germany, the UK and the US, as well as progress in the build-out of our utility-scale solar projects in Canada. Gross margin in the second quarter improved significantly to 19.0% compared to 14.7% in the first quarter of 2014, reflecting solid execution of our total solutions business strategy, as well as higher module ASP and shipment volume. We believe we remain one of the solar industry's best positioned companies given our diverse manufacturing footprint and advanced-stage project pipeline in Canada, Japan, the U.S., and China. We are making steady progress in key developing markets in Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa, and we continue to see robust demand for our solar energy solutions products and services across all geographies and market segments." 

Michael G. Potter, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Canadian Solar, added: "Our second quarter financial results clearly reflect our focus on profitable module sales over module volume and our emphasis on our higher margin total solutions business. Our revenue, MW shipment and net income for the second quarter of 2014 all set quarterly records for the company. This improvement underscores our focus on becoming the industry's most profitable company.  We ended the second quarter with $788.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash. This continues to give us a considerable advantage as we pursue higher margin solar module and utility-scale project opportunities in our target markets, and work to build shareholder value."

Utility Scale Project Pipeline Update

At the end of June 2014, the Company had a pipeline of late stage utility-scale solar projects totaling approximately 1.3 GW DC. These projects include owned and joint-venture projects as well as projects where the Company provides EPC services.

In Canada, during the second quarter of 2014, the Company closed the sale of the 10 MW AC Val Caron solar power plant valued at over C$60 million to One West Holdings Ltd., an affiliate of Concord Green Energy. Currently eight of the Company's projects in Ontario are in commercial operation. Three of them have already been sold to investors and part of their revenue has been captured in the previous quarters, while five of them are pending completion of sale to investors. Also in Canada, during the second quarter of 2014, the Company entered into an EPC agreement with Kingston Solar LP, a solar energy partnership formed by Samsung for the construction of a 140 MW DC utility-scale solar energy plant in Kingston, Ontario. The EPC agreement is expected to generate revenue of over C$300 million for Canadian Solar. The Company's late stage solar project pipeline in Ontario, Canada, now stands at approximately 534.8 MW DC, representing a revenue opportunity of approximately C$1.8 billion once the projects are built and revenue can be recognized under US-GAAP rules.

(1) Commercial Operation Date.

In the United States, at the end of the second quarter 2014, the Company's late stage, utility-scale solar power project pipeline totaled approximately 105.8 MW DC compared to 151.5 MW DC at the end of the first quarter of 2014. During the second quarter the Company completed construction of 12.4 MW DC and sold projects totaling 28 MW DC that were still under development. The Company plans to expand its pipeline in the US through self-development and through joint-venture agreements in the quarters ahead.

In Japan, during the second quarter of 2014, the Company increased its utility-scale solar power project pipeline to 405.5 MW DC. The Company's project development activities in Japan are progressing well despite the delay of the permitting process sometimes experienced at the prefecture and county levels. The Company continues to expect to grow its project pipeline to 600MW by the end of this year. The Company has started the construction of its first ground mounted utility-scale project in Japan, totaling 1.2 MW DC, which is expected to reach commercial operation in September of 2014. In addition, the Company has started civil works on a 24MW DC project in Japan and plans to start construction of an additional nine projects totaling 18 MW DC in the third and fourth quarters of 2014.

In China, the Company expects to start construction on three projects totaling 80MW DC in the third quarter of 2014, based on current permitting schedule.  In addition, the Company continues to pursue more project opportunities.

Business Outlook

The Company's business outlook is based on management's current views and estimates with respect to operating and market conditions, its current order book, global and local financing environment as well as uncertainty relating to customer final demand and solar project construction schedule.  Management's views and estimates are subject to change without notice.

For the third quarter of 2014, the Company expects module shipments to be in the range of approximately 720 MW to 750 MW. Total revenue for the third quarter of 2014 is expected to be in the range of $760 million to $810 million, with gross margin expected to be between 19% and 21%.

The estimated COD of all of the Company's late-stage projects in Canada, the US, Japan and China is subject to change without notice as a result of delays in permitting and construction, among other risk factors.  The acceptance testing and closing process for projects only starts after COD. The length of acceptance testing may be affected by solar radiation levels and other weather conditions. As a result, the transfer of ownership to end customers may not always occur in the same quarter as COD. The Company's business outlook for the third quarter of 2014 includes the expectation of completion of sales and revenue recognition for at least four utility-scale power projects in Canada. For the reasons noted, however, there is a risk that that actual results may differ from current management expectations.

Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar, remarked: "Clearly, Canadian Solar remains one of the strongest companies in the solar industry space. We have reached this position by focusing our attention and efforts on maintaining an industry-leading cost position, improving the quality and efficiency of our solar modules, and differentiating our business model through selective investment in utility-scale solar power project opportunities in low risk regions. Our results for the quarter and guidance for the third quarter are a testament to the successful execution of this strategy. Despite some near-term turbulence as a result of trade disputes and policy uncertainty, we continue to experience strong demand for our products in all key regions and expect reasonably strong global market demand growth during the remainder of 2014.  We expect Japan, Canada, China, Europe and the US, among others, to remain healthy markets for us through the end of 2014 and beyond. On the total solutions business front, we expect to continue our steady progress. All but one of our projects in Ontario are now fully permitted, and eight of them are in commercial operation and others are moving well in construction. This gives us confidence that we are well positioned to deliver record results to our shareholders in the quarters ahead. The recent launch of several YieldCos has increased demand for our solar power plants and we are already seeing higher prices for our projects. With respect to the possibility of Canadian Solar launching its own YieldCo, we are evaluating options in the context of our existing late-stage pipeline and we expect to be in a position to make a decision by early 2015."
