Net loss for the second fiscal quarter 2010 was US$19.2 million, or a loss of US$0.14 per basic and diluted shares compared to a net loss of US$5.5 million, or a loss of US$0.06 per basic and diluted shares in the same period in fiscal 2009.

Leo S. Young, CEO of Solar EnerTech, said, “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 unfavourable market conditions where selling prices for solar modules have plummeted and the Euro continues to depreciate versus RMB Yuan.”

As of March 31, Solar EnerTech recorded US$1.5 million liability in an outstanding series B-1 convertible note. The note bears an interest of 6% per annum and is due on March 19, 2012.
