WUXI,  China,  April 9, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd.
(NYSE: STP) ("Suntech" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest producers
of solar panels, today announced that it has been notified by the New York Stock
Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company did not meet the NYSE's price criteria
for continued listing standard because, as of  April 4, 2013, the average
closing price of the Company's American Depositary Shares, or ADSs, was less
than  $1.00  per ADS over a consecutive 30-trading-day period.

Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months following receipt of the
notification to regain compliance with the minimum share price requirement. The
Company can regain compliance at any time during the six-month cure period if
the Company's ADSs have a closing share price of at least  $1.00  on the last
trading day of any calendar month during the period and also has an average
closing share price of at least  $1.00  over the 30 trading-day period ending on
the last trading day of that month or on the last day of the cure period.

The Company has notified the NYSE of its intention to cure this deficiency
within the prescribed timeframe. The Company's ADSs will continue to be listed
and traded on the NYSE, subject to compliance with other NYSE continued listing
standards and oversight by the NYSE. The NYSE notification does not affect the
Company's business operations or its Securities and Exchange Commission
reporting requirements.
