August 13, 2014 - Hanergy Holding Group Limited today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Alta Devices.

Chairman and CEO of Hanergy Li Hejun said, "Alta Devices' thin film solar technology allows more energy to be produced in lower light conditions than any other type of solar cell, giving it greater potential to power a wide range of mobile devices and equipment from phones to cars. It has the potential to change the way solar energy is used. This acquisition advances Hanergy's goal to become the world leader in the solar technology of the future."

Chris Norris, President and CEO of Alta Devices, said, "This successful acquisition is built upon Alta Devices' and Hanergy's shared belief that flexible, thin-film solar technology represents the future of the solar industry. The combination of our world-class solar cell R&D capability and Hanergy's technology, research and capital resources will help us further improve the performance of our technology, increase production capacity and expand applications."

Both companies' R&D teams will join forces to further develop Alta Devices' technology to serve the mobile and wearable tech market with reliable, high-efficiency solar-power solutions and applications. The acquisition will build on Hanergy's continuous efforts in recent years to enhance thin-film solar innovation, and improve the efficiency and applicability of clean energy through the integration of world-leading thin-film solar technologies.

In particular, Hanergy plans to actively expand the application of Alta Devices' products in various mobile power application areas, ranging from emergency charging of mobile phones, to the automotive sector and the Internet of Things. 

Alta Devices' single-junction GaAs thin-film solar cells are already in production. Following the acquisition, Alta Devices will continue to operate independently as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hanergy. Hanergy will also work with Alta Devices to develop international markets and enhance its cooperation with key strategic customers.
