MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 14 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Solar EnerTech Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: SOEN) (the "Company") today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Second Quarter Highlights:

-- Shipments increased 314% as compared to the second quarter in the prior

year period.

-- Revenue increased 302% to $17.8 million as compared to $4.4 million for

the second quarter of the prior year.

-- Gross profit increased to $0.9 million as compared to ($1.3) million in

the second quarter in the prior year.

Total module shipments increased 314% in the second fiscal quarter 2010 as compared to the second fiscal quarter of the prior year. Revenue for the second fiscal quarter 2010 increased 302% to $17.8 million as compared to $4.4 million in the second fiscal quarter a year ago. The breakdown in revenue for the second fiscal quarter 2010 was comprised of approximately $13.4 million in solar module sales, of which more than 95% were sold into Europe and Australia; $3.5 million of solar cell sales; and $0.9 million from the resale of raw materials. The increase in revenue was driven by increased sales orders from new and existing customers as a result of heightened efforts by the Company's sales and marketing team. Specifically, during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009, the Company signed a 10MW contract with a new customer located in Europe and in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010 the Company signed a 15 MW contract and a 10MW contract with two existing customers which contributed to the increased sales volume.

Gross profit for the second fiscal quarter 2010 increased to $0.9 million, as compared to ($1.3) million for the second quarter a year ago. Gross margin for the second fiscal quarter 2010 was 5% as compared to (30%) in the same prior year period. The improved gross margin was primarily due to the decrease in raw material prices, specifically silicon wafer prices which offset the decrease in module sales prices. The increase in gross margin was also due to lower unit production cost resulted from higher production volume. In addition, the Company secured higher quality raw materials with more favorable credit terms.

The total operating expense for the second fiscal quarter of 2010 was $21.2 million, which included $18.5 million of non-cash charges related to losses from the extinguishment of debt and $0.9 million in non-cash stock compensation charges. Excluding both non-cash items, operating expense for the second fiscal 2010 quarter was $1.8 million, or 10% of total net sales. In comparison the total operating expense for the year ago quarter was $3.7 million, which included $1.5 million of non-cash stock compensation charges related to the hiring and retention of key executives and $0.2 million of non-cash charges related to losses from the extinguishment of debt. Excluding both of these non-cash items, operating expense for the second quarter a year ago was $2.0 million, or 45% of total net sales.

Net loss for the second fiscal quarter 2010 was ($19.2) million, or ($0.14) per basic and diluted shares compared to a net loss of ($5.5) million, or ($0.06) per basic and diluted shares in the same period in fiscal 2009. A majority of net loss in the second quarter fiscal 2010 is attributed to the debt restructurings. In the second quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company recorded a non-cash loss on debt extinguishment amounting to $18.5 million compared to a non-cash loss on debt extinguishment amounting to $0.2 million in the same period in fiscal 2009.

Mr. Leo S. Young, Chief Executive Officer of Solar EnerTech commented, "The second fiscal 2010 quarter's large revenue increase is indicative of Solar EnerTech's fast-growing pace. We are pleased to see the, 300% plus year over year growth in revenue and product shipments, in spite of unfavorable market conditions where selling prices for solar modules have plummeted and the Euro continues to depreciate versus RMB Yuan.

"In December 2009, we began extinguishing our debt in order to improve our capital structure which was preventing us from obtaining reasonable financing from banks. It is a very positive and significant step for the company going forward, even though it resulted in a heavy non-cash loss because of the conversion.

"Management is focusing on lowering the costs of our solar modules; increasing the efficiency of our solar cells; and increasing our output by doubling our manufacturing capacity in order to optimize our competitive position within the global solar market." concluded Mr. Young.
