XINYU CITY, China and SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (LDK), a leading manufacturer of multicrystalline solar wafers, today provided an updated outlook for its second quarter 2009 financial results. For the second quarter of 2009, LDK Solar expects to report between $225 million and $235 million in revenue, slightly above the recently announced estimated range, and wafer shipments between 230 and 240 megawatts (“MW”). LDK Solar expects to record a write-down of $150 to $160 million against the cost of inventories for a decline in net realizable value of inventories resulting from the continued market price decline for solar wafers. As a result, the gross margin is expected to be negative and LDK Solar expects to report a net loss of $180 to $200 million in the second quarter.

LDK Solar currently expects to report full second quarter 2009 results on August 12, 2009 after the market closes.
