"As we enter the second half of 2014, we will continue to enhance the contract execution in order to satisfy our customers' demand for wind turbine generators. Our gross margin for 2.0MW WTGs was approximately 13.3%, which was 1.8 percentage points higher than the gross margin of our 1.5MW WTGs for which revenue was recognized during the quarter. Our orderbook for the 2.0MW WTGs continues to increase and we expect to continue to benefit from the trend towards higher megawatt WTGs in China. We expect the overall demand continues to be strong heading into the second half of 2014."

Second Quarter 2014 Operating Data and Unaudited Financial Results

Revenue

Revenue in the second quarter of 2014 was RMB935.6 million (US$150.8 million), an increase of 74.1% as compared to that of the corresponding period in 2013. Revenue of WTGs amounted to an equivalent wind power project output of 303.5MW, or 153 units of 1.5MW and 37 units of 2.0MW WTGs. For the corresponding period of 2013, the output was 161.0MW, or 90 units of 1.5MW and 13 units of 2.0MW WTGs. The 74.1% increase in revenue was mainly due to a 84.5% increase in the number of WTGs commissioned compared with the second quarter of 2013.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2014 was RMB123.5 million (US$19.9 million), compared to that of RMB66.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. Gross margin in the second quarter of 2014 was 13.2%, compared to that of 12.3% for the corresponding period in 2013. The improvement in gross margin was mainly due to increased units of 2.0MW WTGs commissioned in the period, which had a higher gross margin compared to that of 1.5MW WTGs. On an adjusted basis, should warranty provisions be excluded from cost of sales, our adjusted gross margin would be 16.4% for the second quarter of 2014, compared to 15.3% in the corresponding period of 2013.

Selling and Distribution Expenses

Selling and distribution expenses were RMB59.1 million (US$9.5 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB34.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013, representing an increase of 72.6%, which increased relatively at the same pace as the increase in revenue.

Administrative Expenses

Administrative expenses were RMB37.5 million (US$6.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB70.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013, representing a decrease of 46.4%. The decrease in administrative expenses was a combined result of (1) the reversal of provision for bad debts against trade and other receivables of RMB20.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 as we received settlement from customers for some of the long-outstanding doubtful trade receivables, and (2) our administrative expenses in 2013 included administrative expenses of RMB11.3 million incurred by our previously consolidated Indian subsidiary, Global Wind Power Limited ("GWPL"), which we deconsolidated since January 1, 2014.

Research and Development Expenses

Research and development expenses were RMB22.2 million (US$3.6 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB20.7 million for the corresponding period in 2013, representing an increase of 7.2%. The increase was primarily attributable to more research and development activities carried out in the second quarter of 2014.

Finance Income

Our finance income was RMB43.6 million (US$7.0 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB45.1 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The decrease in finance income was mainly because the finance income in the second quarter of 2013 included interest income recorded by GWPL, which we deconsolidated since January 1, 2014.

Finance Expenses

Our finance expenses were RMB42.9 million (US$6.9 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB84.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The decrease in finance expenses was mainly due to finance expenses incurred by GWPL in the second quarter of 2013 which did not occur in the current quarter.

Profit/ (Loss) Before Income Tax

Profit before income tax was RMB15.1 million (US$2.4 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to loss before income tax of RMB91.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Income Tax (Expense) / Benefit

Income tax expense was RMB3.4 million (US$0.6 million) for the second quarter of 2014, compared to income tax benefit of RMB8.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013, primarily due to the profit recorded during the second quarter of 2014 .

Total Comprehensive Income/ (Loss) and Earnings/ (Loss) per Share

Total comprehensive income for the second quarter of 2014 was RMB11.8 million (US$1.9 million), compared to total comprehensive loss of RMB87.4 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

For the second quarter of 2014, basic and diluted earnings per share were RMB0.11 (US$0.02), compared to basic and diluted loss per share of RMB0.51 for the corresponding period in 2013.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2014 were RMB815.3 million (US$131.4 million), compared to RMB811.8 million as of December31, 2013.
