JA Solar announced its unaudited financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2014. Although its PV cells shipment decreased, strong demands to PV modules among the APAC region (China excepted) increased JA Solar’s module shipment by 57% y-o-y and 15.2% Q-o-Q. The fact also drove the net revenue and gross profit to grow both quarterly and yearly.
