06:32 EDTYGEYingli Green Energy announces partnership with LONGi
Yingli Green Energy announced that it has signed a framework agreement with Xi'an LONGi Silicon Materials to cooperatively manufacture monocrystalline silicon wafers, and ingots, solar cells and solar panels. The new partnership will help LONGi, the world's largest monocrystalline silicon manufacturer, expand into solar panel assembly while also enabling Yingli to integrate LONGi's highly competitive technology into its production lines. According to the agreement, the two parties will collaborate to employ their respective manufacturing capacities, technologies and resources across the full monocrystalline value chain, from monocrystalline ingots and wafers to solar cells and panels. For example, when producing ingots, Yingli will integrate LONGi's technology and cost-saving advantages into its own production lines, and LONGi will supply high quality monocrystalline wafers to Yingli at a competitive price. Under the same circumstances, Yingli agrees to preferentially procure LONGi's monocrystalline silicon wafers. In the meanwhile, both parties agreed to develop high-efficiency monocrystalline solar application markets from home and abroad and consider to use monocrystalline modules for their self-developed power plants, further to explore the possibilities to jointly develop monocrystalline silicon ingot plants.

06:36 EDTWMTWal-Mart accused of using charity to increase expansion, NYT reports
Several community and labor organizations are accusing Wal-Mart of inappropriately using its nonprofit Wal-Mart Foundation to reduce local opposition to expansion efforts in places such as Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, and New York, the New York Times reports. The group of organizations claimed in a complaint with the IRS that the Wal-Mart Foundation violated the terms of its tax-exempt status by targeting millions of dollars in donations that would directly benefit the retailer, the report says. The complaint alleges that the foundation donated over $200,000 to organizations in Los Angeles in 2008 and 2009, but raised that figure to $1.4M in 2011, right as the company planned to open a store in that area. When the store was opened in 2013, donations fell to roughly $230,000, the report says. In a statement, the New York Times reports, Wal-Mart spokesman Kevin Gardner said that the Wal-Mart Foundation took tax code and regulations "very seriously" and that the allegations had no merit.

07:35 EDTYGEYingli Green Energy connects 50MW solar power plant to utility grid in China
Yingli Green Energy announced that it has connected its 50 MW PV power plant, located in Hebei Province, China, to the utility grid. The 50 MW PV power plant is the first and largest power plant in Handan City, Hebei Province. It is expected to produce approximately 54 million kilowatt-hours of solar electricity each year, offsetting about 50,000 tons of carbon emissions annually. The project is also expected to generate annual revenue of $8.7M from national feed-in-tariffs for the next 20 years. The project has obtained a 10-year, $48M financing facility from CGN International Finance Leasing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of China General Nuclear Power Group. Yingli is also negotiating with a third party for the transfer of the project, which is expected to be completed in the second half of 2015.
07:19 EDTGALEGalena presents GALE-401 Phase 2 data at EHA
Galena Biopharma announced that data from the company's Phase 2 clinical trial of GALE-401 was presented at the European Hematology Association, or EHA, 20th Congress in Vienna, Austria. The GALE-401 Phase 2 pilot study is a single arm, open label, multi-center study evaluating the efficacy and safety of anagrelide controlled release in subjects with thrombocytosis secondary to essential thrombocythemia, or ET, and other myeloproliferative neoplasms, or MPNs. The poster presentation, entitled, "Phase 2 Study of a Novel Controlled-Release Formulation of Anagrelide, or GALE-401, in Subjects with Myeloproliferative Neoplasm, or MPN,-Related Thrombocytosis," was presented on Saturday, June 13, 2015. The Phase 2 study demonstrated that GALE-401 was well tolerated with primarily Grade 1 and 2 toxicities in 16 of the 18 subjects enrolled. The efficacy shown in the trial compares favorably to historical anagrelide immediate release, or IR, response rates with the following platelet response: overall response rate, or ORR, of 78%; complete response, or CR, of 39%; partial response of 39%. The median time to response was 5 weeks, and the median duration of response has not yet been reached. Based on the data, the investigators concluded that GALE-401 remains a viable potential treatment option for MPNs, and a randomized trial comparing GALE-401 versus anagrelide IR is warranted. Final data from the GALE-401 Phase 2 trial is expected to be presented at the American Society of Hematology conference in December.
