Financials

JA Solar reported net revenue in 2017 US$3.0 billion, an increase of 25.5% from US$2.4 billion in the previous year.

Total gross profit was US370.3 million), or 12.3% of net revenue, compared with US$352.5 million, or 14.6% of net revenue, in 2016.

Operating profit was US$110.0 million, compared to US$138.8 million in 2016.

Net income was $46.1 million, compared with $110.6 million in the previous year.

Baofang Jin, Chairman and CEO of JA Solar, commented, “Overall 2017 results were largely in-line with our expectations. While net revenue grew 25% year-over-year, gross margin was negatively impacted by lower ASPs and rising material costs. Additionally, higher operating expenses led to a decline in operating profits and net income in 2017 when compared to 2016. Despite the negative impact of the Section 201 trade case, we continue to invest in R&D to develop high-performance products to strengthen our competitive position. We are confident that our technologies, high-reliability products and balanced global footprint will continue to position JA Solar for a solid future.”
