March 4 Yingli Green Energy Holding Co,
one of China's largest solar equipment makers, reported its
sixth straight quarterly loss as it wrote down the value of its
inventory amid a four-year long slump in panel prices.
The solar panel industry has been battered by excess
capacity and subsidy cuts at top market Europe, with prices
falling 30 percent in the past year.
Revenue rose 14 percent to $466 million as panel shipments
rose within the low-price Chinese market, helping limit the
Yingli's net loss fell to $200.5 million, or $1.28 per
American depositary share (ADS), in the fourth quarter from
$599.4 million, or $3.87 per ADS a year earlier.
