Yingli files $200M mixed shelf

  • Yingli (YGE) doesn't state what it plans to do with the proceeds of any stock or debt offering that follows the shelf filing. Paying down or refinancing a part of the company's debt load (stood at $2.2B at the end of Q2) is a strong possibility. (F-3)
  • The filing comes with Yingli shares up over 4x from their Nov. '12 lows, and up over 3x from their April lows.

    ugh. Not the news I want to hear. They just completed a $165 million short-term loan last quarter! Now they need $200 mil more? Very discouraging.

    Possibly streamlining/automating their production in order to achieve higher profits.

    We would need to know much more about the shelf filing, but 200m is about 36m shares, which would bring us close to 200m shares and a 4.4 dollar price.

     

    But a shelf filing really is different than a seperate propectus public offering. As said, we need to know much more details, how many of which types of shares and warrants etc.

    Well hopefully this will cause a big sell off so I can load up some more shares real cheap-like.

    Is this some fake news? Prices for German ADRs have not been moving at all so far.

    nope, sorry for talking to myself but I just found the statement on Yingli's website. I still can't make head or tail of this conspicuous silence … Any ideas?
