Confidence in Ability to Recover

China Sunergy Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq: CSUN) (”China Sunergy” or “The
Company”), a specialized solar cell and module manufacturer, today
announced updates to its guidance for the second quarter of 2011
and full year 2011.

China Sunergy expects its solar module shipments in the second
quarter to be between 100 and 110 MW, compared to the Company’s
previous guidance of between 120MW and 130MW. The Company delayed
some of its shipments to July, in line with the Company’s credit
control policy, as a result of delays in the approval of project
loans to some of Company’s customers in Europe.

For the full year 2011, the Company now expects its solar module
shipments to be between 580MW and 600MW, compared to the Company’s
previous guidance of between 670MW and 690MW.  The more
conservative guidance reflects that financing delays are becoming
more common and may even result in some order cancellations, and
therefore the Company may not be able to complete as many
transactions as it had forecasted, despite robust demand.

For the second quarter of 2011, the Company expects its overall
gross margin to be approximately 1%, compared to Company’s previous
guidance of between 7.5% and 8.5%; gross margin relating to the
Company’s in-house module production is expected to be
approximately 3%, compared to Company’s previous guidance of
between 12% and 13%.

The lowered margin guidance reflects a number of short-term
factors, including a higher proportion of higher-cost inventory in
projected second quarter shipments, an increase in non-silicon
costs due to an increase in the cost of silver paste, and a faster
than expected drop in solar module average selling price (ASP).

The outlook for the second quarter and full year of 2011
reflects the Company’s current estimates based on the conditions
and trends known to the Company as of the date of this press
release. Results are subject to changes based on further review by
management and future changes in market and operating

Mr. Stephen Cai, the Chief Executive Officer of CSUN, commented,
“In the interest of transparency and best practices, we wanted to
give the market ample notice that our second quarter results will
be substantially lower than previously forecasted. However, the
sales we will not realize in Q2 will be realized in Q3. We are in
this business for the long run and we believe in the long-term
market growth for our products. Our procurement strategy has a
great deal of flexibility built into it and we will do our best to
deal with any volatility in the industry.”
