NANJING, China, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- China Sunergy Co., Ltd.
(Nasdaq: CSUN) ("China Sunergy" or the "Company"), a specialized solar cell
and module manufacturer, today announced that it would report its financial
results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012 on
Friday, April 12, 2013, before the market opens in the United States.
China Sunergy's solar product shipments in the fourth quarter of 2012 were
approximately 79MW, compared to the previous guidance of 90MW to 100MW, which
was mainly due to the delay of some shipments to January 2013. The Company
expects its overall gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2012 to be between
negative 3% and negative 4%, compared to previous guidance of low-single-digit
level, mainly as a result of recognizing a non-cash charge of inventory
provision and the decreased average selling prices.

April 12, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time (Friday, April 12, 2013 at 8:00
