Capacity comments

In 2016 a flood severely damaged one of the factories, hence the cell manufacturing capacity fallback

Segment Revenues ($M)

Segment comments

The MSS (Module and System Solutions) business was the division that manufactured the solar modules, system kits, etc.

The Energy business was involved in project development, operation and maintenance and the ownership of working solar power plants

From 20Q4 the company has a new reporting structure. CSI Solar and Global Energy

CSI Solar contains the previous MSS business plus the new "Battery energy storage solutions" plus all of China Energy, which was previously reported under the Energy segment

The Energy business became Global Energy excluding all of the Chinese operations

The company listed the CSI Solar business on the Chinese stock market and owns 80% of it, as of 2020 December 31st

Total revenues differ from the summary of the two segments because of intra-company transactions

Comments

Data prior to 20Q3 is for the MSS (Module and System Solutions) and for the Energy business lines

Data from 20Q3 is for the CSI Solar and Global Energy business lines

The company did not report per segment operating income prior to 18Q4, so the annual results prior to 2019 are in fact missing and are not zero

Total debt ($M)

Debt comments

Borrowings for solar projects covers debt issued to finance the buildout of solar power plants.This means that for this debt, the power plants can be used as collateral

Borrowing for corporate/manufacturing is for operating expenses and to finance capital expenditures. This type of debt is riskier as if there is a downturn in business operations, the company needs to use its cash and other resources to pay this off
