(NYSE: STP) ("Suntech" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest producers
of solar panels, today announced that it has been notified by the New York
Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that the Company did not meet the NYSE's price
criteria for continued listing standard because, as of April 4, 2013, the

Under NYSE rules, the Company has six months following receipt of the

trading day of any calendar month during the period and also has an average
closing share price of at least $1.00 over the 30 trading-day period ending on
the last trading day of that month or on the last day of the cure period.

The Company has notified the NYSE of its intention to cure this deficiency
within the prescribed timeframe. The Company's ADSs will continue to be listed
and traded on the NYSE, subject to compliance with other NYSE continued
listing standards and oversight by the NYSE.The NYSE notification does not
affect the Company's business operations or its Securities and Exchange
Commission reporting requirements.
