SunSi has issued a number of very positive press releases and the future looks optimistic.*
Based in New York, SunSi Energies, Inc. (OTC: QB â€“ SSIE – $3.55) has operations in China that produce a specialty chemical known as Trichlorosilane (TCS). TCS is a compound critical to the production of extremely pure polysilicon, from which solar photovoltaic (PV) cells and other products are made. In fact, between 70-75% of all solar panels in use today are made with PV cells. SunSi sells the TCS to the worldâ€™s leading PV cell manufacturers.
Not only is TCS the most important material used in the production of PV, but also it is also the most profitable in the entire solar food chain!!!
SunSi already has 15% of the market in China, the most important PV market in the world, where most of the products are produced. Labor is cheaper, production experience is vast, and SunSiâ€™s facilities are close to the important customers.
Through organic growth and M&A, SunSi is well positioned to dominate this space and become the worldâ€™s largest supplier of TCS in the next few years.
Huge Industry Growth
Industry research firm SolarBuzz predicts that the solar panel growth will double from 2009 â€“ 2014. As part of Chinaâ€™s alternative energy investment mandate, the TCS market in China will grow by five-fold by 2020.
SunSi is in great shape. With an estimated 65% of global solar production capacity, China is the place to be for solar production.
The appetite for alternative energy and the consumption of solar power in particular is climbing rapidly. This is especially the case in the U.S. Huge solar farms are cropping up all over and the residential solar energy installation is on a huge upswing.
There are some serious drivers to this market. Government subsidies, falling equipment prices, super-low interest rates and now broad-based financing options have had a substantial effect on the U.S. solar business. Companies such as Google are providing financing and utilities are investing in solar power installers and operators. More and more citizens are leasing solar systems. Itâ€™s just like leasing a car!
SSIE in Major Expansion Mode
SunSi currently controls an estimated 45,000 metric tons (MT) of TCS production through its existing facilities. At the end of 2010, SunSi HK (a SunSi subsidiary) completed the acquisition of 90% of Zibo Baokai Commerce and Trade Co. (“Baokai”), a distribution company. With this acquisition, SunSi gained exclusive rights to distribute 25,000 MT (metric tons) of TCS produced by the Zibo Baoyun Chemical Plant (“ZBC”) located in Zibo China for both the local Chinese and the international markets. This created a major foothold for SunSi in the Chinese TCS market.
In March 2011, SunSi HK completed the acquisition of 60% of Wendeng He Xie Silicon Co. Ltd (“Wendeng”) located in Weihai City, which brought SunSi an additional 22,000 MT in capacity.
SunSi is currently undertaking a facility expansion, which will increase capacity by almost 50% to 30,000 MT, by the end of July 2011. A second capacity expansion at the Wendeng facility will commence in July 2011. The total expansion that is expected to be completed in early 2012 will increase Wendeng’s capacity to 75,000 MT.
Just last month, SunSi fulfilled its Wendeng acquisition payment obligation. The 40% equity shareholder in the facility opted to retain his $2.7M in redeemable SunSi stock. This eliminates the need for SunSi to raise $2.7M and is major demonstration of confidence in SunSi management and the stock.
Impressive Growth: Check Out These Numbers
In the Companyâ€™s fiscal 3Q11, SunSi recorded $4.6 million in revenue for its first quarter following the Baokai acquisition. For 4Q11, management already announced revenue guidance of $11.0 – $13.0 million and $0.01 â€“ 0.02 in EPS. Goldman Small Cap Research projects revenue of $45 million and EPS of $0.13 for 2011 and $140 million in revenue and $0.46 in EPS in 2012.
That means the stock is trading less than 8x 2012 EPS even though revenue and EPS could triple from this yearâ€™s levels!!!
There are approximately 30 million shares outstanding, which gives SunSi a market capitalization just under $100M. Investors do not have to worry about major dilution around the corner or crippling debt. The capital structure is clean. There are no options, no warrants, and no long-term debt.
The news coming out of SunSi over the past three months has been stellar and offers very sunny days ahead. Here are highlights from key releases and events.

SUNSI FULLFILLS WENDENG ACQUISITION PAYMENT OBLIGATION
$2.7 MILLION IN REDEEMABLE COMMON STOCK
CONVERTED TO EQUITY
SunSi Energies, Inc. a specialty chemical provider to the solar industry announced today that the 40% equity shareholder of the Companyâ€™s Wendeng trichlorosilane (TCS) facility in Weihai City, China has waived his right of redemption and elected to retain 1,349,628 additional shares of SunSi common stock.Â The shareholderâ€™s action eliminates the requirement that SunSi raise $2.7 million to redeem the shareholderâ€™s common stock.
Under the terms of the March 18, 2011 Wendeng acquisition agreement, the 40% shareholder was issued 1,349,628 shares of the Companyâ€™s redeemable common stock. These shares could have been redeemed by the 40% shareholder beginning September 18, 2011, which would have required SunSi to repurchase these shares for approximately $2.7 million dollars. On June 14, 2011, the shareholder waived his right of redemption and has elected to retain his SunSi shares.
As part of the Wendeng agreement, SunSi was also required to make a payment of $445,075 to the 40% shareholder of Wendeng, no later than June 18, 2011.Â SunSi made this payment well in advance of the due date, and has now completely fulfilled the financial requirements associated with this acquisition agreement.
David Natan, SunSiâ€™s Chief Executive Officer stated.Â â€śWe are delighted that our Wendeng partner has chosen to hold his shares and not redeem them.Â His action sends a tremendous vote of confidence, and now enables us to focus on raising expansion capital to grow the Wendeng facility from its current capacity of 22,000 metric tons to 75,000 metric tons.â€ť
