Chinese PV Industry Brief: Canadian Solar suspends Shanghai IPO


Canadian Solar has officially suspended its plans for an initial public offering on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE), as it has failed to provide required updates. The Chinese-Canadian module manufacturer announced its IPO plans in June 2021, with China International Investment Corp. (CICC) as its listing sponsor.

GCL Technology said this week that its board has approved a proposal to move away from the Hong Kong Stock Exchanges to the mainland Chinese stock market, either in Shanghai or Shenzhen. It said that thus far, it has not submitted any official applications yet, as the proposal must be approved by shareholders.

Longi said its revenue for the first three quarters of this year likely ranged from CNY 86.4 billion ($12.14 billion) to CNY 87.4 billion. Net profit attributable to shareholders likely ranges from CNY 10.6 billion to CNY 11.2 billion. The company attributed its performance to higher silicon wafer and PV panel shipments.
