LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK) Posts a Major Supply Deal with Q-Cells - Another Reason to Own the Stock

Sep 12, 2008
Author: SCP Editor

September 12, 2008 – LDK Solar (NYSE:LDK) made another blockbuster announcement this morning. This time, an 11-year solar-grade polysilicon processing deal with Q-Cells, a leading European midstream firm, with an MOU to process an additional 5MW of silicon (20,000 metric tons) through 2018. The company’s stock has pulled back from about $50 in broader market weakness of late, and we think that this morning’s announcement is just another reason to be accumulating more LDK on the dip.

Last week, it signed an 8-year contract with Sumimoto Corp. to supply 750MW for multicrystalline silicon wafers,  a $32 million polysilicon reactor agreement with GT Solar (Nasdaq:SOLR) and a 550MW delivery deal for multicrystalline silicon wafers to Solartech Energy Corp. The week before it announced a 440MW supply deal for solar wafers to Hyundai Heavy Industries. On this last announcement traded up to $52. On the heels of all of these large announcements, the stock has pulled back $12 – amidst sector and market weakness. Again, we see this is an opportunity to accumulate.

Based on 4x  our forecast FY2008 sales, a 5% discount to yesterday’s closing price, and based on 22x our forecast FY2008 earnings, we arrive at an implied target for the stock of $63.
