Daqo now owns 80.7% of Xinjiang Daqo. On its first day of trading yesterday, Xinjiang Daqo’s shares closed at RMB61.11 (US$9.43) per share, up 184.4% compared with the IPO price.

On 23 June, Daqo completed its registration with the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) after submitting its application earlier that month.  

“The successful IPO of Xinjiang Daqo marks a very important milestone for the Company,” said Guangfu Xu, chairman of Daqo New Energy and Xinjiang Daqo. “In many regions of the world, including China, solar PV has already reached grid parity, making it competitive with traditional fossil-fuel energies, even without government subsidies.”

Xu said that in the short term, as the costs of solar PV and storage “continue to fall”, Daqo expects to achieve “broader grid parity for solar PV and energy storage” as well as expanding its operations into semiconductor-grade polysilicon.
