13:05 EDTCSUN, CSIQ, TSL, JASO, JKSSolars fall after Canadian Solar misses expectations
Shares of a number Chinese solar energy companies are falling after one of the names in the sector, Canadian Solar (CSIQ), reported lower than expected earnings and provided lower than expected first quarter revenue guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Canadian Solar's fourth quarter earnings per share came in at 39c, versus analysts' consensus outlook of 41c. However, the company's revenue was slightly higher than expected. Canadian Solar noted that its solar module shipments had jumped to 621 megawatts last quarter, up from 478 megawatts in the previous quarter. However, its gross margin dropped to 19.5% in Q4, down from 20.4% in Q3. For Q1, Canadian Solar expects its revenue to come in at $415M-$430M, versus the consensus outlook of $517.78M. On its earnings conference call, the company stated that its Q1 sales have been hurt by the severe weather conditions in North America, which caused about $100M of its revenue to be delayed until future quarters. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Calling pollution a major problem, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang earlier today said the government would "declare war" on smog, Bloomberg reported. This emphasis on combating pollution could affect the pace of China's solar energy push. Earlier this year, China's government reported that Beijing plans to accelerate the development of solar energy in an effort to reduce its air pollution. Meanwhile, another company in the sector, JinkoSolar (JKS), yesterday reported significantly stronger than expected Q4 results. On another negative note for the sector, Chinese solar equipment producer Chaori Solar said today that it would not be able to make interest payments on bonds due on Friday, according to Reuters. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, JinkoSolar sank 5.4% to $34, Trina Solar (TSL) gave back 1.8% to $16.07, China Sunergy (CSUN) fell 2.2% to $5.60, JA Solar (JASO) dropped 5.8% to $10.15, and Canadian Solar tumbled 12.5% to $38.20.

06:51 EDTJKSJinkoSolar reaches settlement in securities class action
JinkoSolar announced that it had agreed, subject to court approval, to settle the previously disclosed class action lawsuit brought in 2011 on behalf of all purchasers of JinkoSolar's American Depositary Shares between May 13, 2010 and September 20, 2011. The settlement, if approved, will also resolve all related claims against JinkoSolar's officers and directors as well as the underwriters involved in JinkoSolar's public offerings during the relevant period. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, the members of the proposed class will receive a settlement fund of $5.05 million, less any court-approved fees. JinkoSolar will contribute a portion of the settlement fund, and JinkoSolar's insurers will fund the remaining portion. JinkoSolar will not take any charge in connection with the settlement. The plaintiffs had alleged, among other things, that certain of JinkoSolar's filings with the SEC contained misrepresentations about the extent of its compliance with environmental regulations in China. JinkoSolar has denied, and continues to deny, the allegations and is entering into this settlement solely to eliminate the uncertainty, burden and expense of further protracted litigation. The proposed settlement will be reviewed by Judge J. Paul Oetken of the federal court in New York, where the lawsuit is pending.
