Management Remarks

Mr. Longgen Zhang, CEO of Daqo New Energy, commented, “We had an excellent year with great operational and financial performance. We produced 86,587 MT of polysilicon in 2021, exceeding our guidance of 83,000 to 85,000 MT and 12% higher than 77,288 MT produced in 2020. In 2021, approximately 99% of our production was mono-grade polysilicon, which had the highest pricing in the market and was the product most sought after by wafer customers. 2021 saw strong global policies supporting carbon neutrality and the de-carbonization of the energy sector that led to strong demand for solar energy products and resulted in higher polysilicon prices. We delivered a strong financial performance for the full year, with a gross margin of 65% and net income attributable to our shareholders of $756 million, representing a 485.3% increase compared to 2020. Daqo New Energy also achieved two additional major milestones in 2021. We successfully listed our subsidiary Xinjiang Daqo on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in China in July 2021, which will significantly amplify our future growth with access to a robust capital market in China. We also successfully completed the construction of our Phase 4B project and started pilot production in December 2021 with better than anticipated results. As such, we believe that we will continue to be one of the world’s best operators in the polysilicon industry, and a market leader in many aspects including production throughput, product quality, profit margin, cost structure, capital structure and balance sheet.”  

“In the fourth quarter of 2021, we produced 23,616 MT of polysilicon, including 1,111 MT from our newly-built Phase 4B facility and we sold 11,642 MT. End of year seasonality impact combined with downstream inventory adjustments led to a temporary reduction in demand, when our customers in the wafer sector reduced their own raw material and product inventory levels and temporarily lowered their utilization rate. After extensive analysis of long-term supply and demand dynamics, we believe that the lower utilization level in the wafer sector was due to seasonality impact and temporary in nature. Therefore, we expect conditions to resume to normal once the solar value chain achieves a new balance when market demand bounces back. In January 2022, the solar market did see a strong pick-up in end market orders, and wafer sector utilization and demand quickly resumed to normal levels. As a result, polysilicon ASP started to recover meaningfully. Our inventory also quickly returned to a normal level by the end of January.”

“In the fourth quarter, our production cost was $14.11/kg. The increase in production cost as compared to the third quarter was primarily due to the increase in the cost of raw material of silicon powder. The average procurement cost of silicon powder increased from $2.58/kg in the third quarter to $8.68/kg in the fourth quarter. Start-up costs related to our new Phase 4B facility also had a temporary impact on our costs in the fourth quarter. Despite the strong increase in raw material cost during the fourth quarter, most of this cost increase was passed to our downstream customers, as ASPs for the fourth quarter increased to $33.91/kg, compared to $27.55/kg in the third quarter. Moreover, the price of silicon powder started to decline quickly in January 2022 and the current market price of silicon powder is approximately $3.5/kg to $3.6/kg. We expect our production cost to decrease meaningfully in the first quarter of 2022 as a result of lower silicon powder prices and better operational efficiency in our Phase 4B facility.”

“In terms of our new Phase 4B facility, we completed the project ahead of schedule despite significant difficulties and challenges resulting from the resurgence of COVID-19. We commenced the construction of Phase 4B in 2021 and harvested the first batch of polysilicon from the brand-new CVD furnaces in early December 2021, within the same year. This has been a new milestone in our company’s history in terms of building new capacity and has also set a new benchmark for the industry. We produced approximately 1,111 MT and 2,825 MT of polysilicon from our Phase 4B facility in December 2021 and January 2022, respectively. We expect to reach more optimized output in February and March 2022 and to produce approximately 9,500 MT from our Phase 4B facility in the first quarter of 2022. Polysilicon production from this new facility has already been delivered to our mono wafer customers and met their quality standards.”

“Our Inner Mongolia polysilicon projects, consisting of a 100,000 MT polysilicon for the solar industry and a 1,000 MT polysilicon for the semiconductor industry, are expected to commence in March 2022 and to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2023. We have already obtained the energy consumption approval and plan to partially use renewable energy to power these projects in the future. We also plan to expand to silicon powder production in Inner Mongolia in the future, which will allow us to further enhance our cost structure and improve our supply chain stability.”  

“Global solar PV installations were approximately 160GW in 2021, representing a 23% increase compared to approximately 130 GW in 2020. The 2021 global PV market size was limited by the availability of polysilicon. In addition, solar module pricing increased by more than 20% during 2021. The increases both in volume and price in 2021 demonstrated a very strong market demand as solar broadly achieved grid parity in major power markets around the world, and the development and use of renewable energy has become a global consensus to meet the urgency of global climate challenges. We believe the strong momentum in the solar PV industry will continue to provide a huge market with significant growth potential in the future. In the solar PV industry, polysilicon production has the highest entry barrier, requiring substantial capital, complex and difficult-to-manage process and equipment, stringent product quality requirements, and long-lead times. We are confident that our advantages and competitive positioning, with first-class quality and competitive cost structure, will enable us to continuously increase our market share and enhance our global leadership in the polysilicon industry.”

Outlook and guidance

The Company expects to produce approximately 31,000MT to 32,000MT of polysilicon during the first quarter of 2022. The Company expects to produce approximately 120,000MT to 125,000MT of polysilicon for the full year of 2022, inclusive of the impact of the Company’s annual facility maintenance.

This outlook reflects Daqo New Energy’s current and preliminary view as of the date of this press release and may be subject to changes. The Company’s ability to achieve these projections is subject to risks and uncertainties. See “Safe Harbor Statement” at the end of this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Daqo New Energy’s consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“US GAAP”), the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted for certain items from the most directly comparable GAAP measures including earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) and EBITDA margin; adjusted net income attributable to Daqo New Energy Corp. shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic and diluted ADS. Our management believes that each of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, enabling them to better assess changes in key element of the Company’s results of operations across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of certain items as described below. Thus, our management believes that, used in conjunction with US GAAP financial measures, these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with meaningful supplemental information to assess the Company’s operating results in a manner that is focused on its ongoing, core operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to assess the business, its financial performance, current and historical results, as well as for strategic decision-making and forecasting future results. Given our management’s use of these non-GAAP measures, the Company believes these measures are important to investors in understanding the Company’s operating results as seen through the eyes of our management. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with US GAAP or intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP; the non-GAAP measures should be reviewed together with the US GAAP measures, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

The Company uses EBITDA, which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and EBITDA margin, which represents the proportion of EBITDA in revenues. Adjusted net income attributable to Daqo New Energy Corp. shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic and diluted ADS exclude costs related to share-based compensation. Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, our management excludes this item from our internal operating forecasts and models. Our management believes that this adjustment for share-based compensation provides investors with a basis to measure the Company’s core performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without the period-to-period variability created by share-based compensation.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable US GAAP measures is presented later in this document.
