Notes:

(1) Our polysilicon external sales volume excludes internal sales to our Chongqing wafer manufacturing subsidiary, which utilizes polysilicon as raw material for the production of solar wafers. The sales volume is the quantity of goods that have been accepted by customers, and thus the corresponding revenue has been recognized during the period indicated.

(2) Production cost and cash cost only refer to production in our Xinjiang polysilicon facilities. Production cost is calculated by the inventoriable costs relating to production of polysilicon in Xinjiang divided by the production volume in the quarter. Cash cost is calculated by the inventoriable costs relating to production of polysilicon excluding depreciation expense in Xinjiang, divided by the production volume in the quarter.

(3) Daqo New Energy provides non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss) attributable to our shareholders and adjusted earnings (loss) per ADS on a non-GAAP basis to provide supplemental information regarding its financial performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section captioned "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and the tables captioned "Reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable US GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

Commentary

"I would like to thank our entire team for the excellent operational performance and financial results for the second quarter of 2016," said Dr. Gongda Yao, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "During the quarter, we produced a record-high of 3,570 MT of polysilicon, which surpassed our annual name plate capacity of 12,150 MT. With our continuous effort on cost reduction, we reached our lowest ever cost structure with $9.43/kg in total cost and $7.42/kg in cash cost. Our current cost structure is 27% below Q2 2015 level, which at the time was already one of the lowest in the world. We believe we continue to be one of the lowest cost producers of polysilicon in the world in Q2 2016, and with further technology upgrades and process improvements, we believe we have a roadmap to reduce our cost even lower. "

"In the second quarter of 2016, the demand for polysilicon was very strong. We saw substantial increase in polysilicon orders and shipments across a wide range of customers. With a tight supply environment, market ASPs improved meaningfully, from $13.72/kg in the first quarter to $17.24/kg in the second quarter of 2016."

"Entering into the third quarter, we continue to see strong demand and robust orders from customers. The market for polysilicon within China remain tight supplied, with low levels of inventory across domestic suppliers and customers. Based on current market demand trends, we are seeing a stable pricing environment, and we anticipate Q3 ASP to be similar to Q2 levels. Considering several of the major Chinese polysilicon producers including Daqo plans to conduct annual facilities maintenance during the third quarter, we anticipate that the tight-supply situation for polysilicon sector within China should continue in 2016."

"For the second quarter of 2016, we not only delivered the best-ever quarter for the Company in terms of operational performance, but also excellent financial results. We achieved revenues of $71.0 million, with non-GAAP gross margin of 43.9%, and EBITDA margin of 48.9%, and GAAP earnings per basic ADS of $1.90. In particular, we generated strong cash flow from operating activities of $66.6 million in the first half of this year. With our Phase 3A polysilicon facilities expected to come online in early 2017, which will bring our annual capacity to 18,000 MT, we expect to continue to deliver compelling financial performance and results to our shareholders."

Outlook and Q3 2016 guidance

Since the ramp up of our Phase 2B capacity at the end of June 2015, we have produced a total of over 13,200 MT of polysilicon over the past four quarters, above our nameplate capacity of 12,150 MT. As our Xinjiang polysilicon manufacturing facilities have been operating continuously for more than 12 months, it is necessary that we conduct our annual scheduled maintenance during the third quarter to ensure safe and smooth operations. We also plan to take this opportunity to do preparation work for the interconnection between existing facilities and Phase 3A facilities which are expected to start pilot production early next year. The entire annual maintenance schedule is expected to result in 15 to 20 days of suspension to polysilicon production for 2016. Due to the long lead-time for procuring the specialty materials and equipment required for the annual maintenance, we anticipate that we would start the annual maintenance work in the second half of September 2016. However, the start date of the annual maintenance work depends on the scheduled delivery of such specialty materials and equipment. Therefore, it is possible that the annual maintenance start date may be delayed.

As a result of the above mentioned factors, the Company expects to sell approximately 2,550 MT to 2,600 MT of polysilicon to external customers during Q3 2016. The external sales guidance excludes shipments of polysilicon to be used internally by our Chongqing solar wafer facility, which is expected to utilize approximately 550 tons of polysilicon during the quarter for its wafer manufacturing operation. Wafer sales volume is expected to be approximately 24.0 million to 25.0 million pieces for Q3 2016.

This outlook reflects our current and preliminary view as of the date of this press release and may be subject to change. Our ability to achieve these projections is subject to risks and uncertainties. See "Safe Harbor Statement" at the end of this press release.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, net cash used in financing activities was $13.5 million, compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $75.7 million in the same period of 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Daqo's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("US GAAP"), the Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures that are adjusted for certain items from the most directly comparable GAAP measures including non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and EBITDA margin; adjusted net income attributable to our shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS. Management believes that each of these non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, enabling them to better assess changes in key element of the Company's results of operations across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of certain items as described below. Thus, management believes that, used in conjunction with US GAAP financial measures, these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with meaningful supplemental information to assess the Company's operating results in a manner that is focused on its ongoing, core operating performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to assess the business, its financial performance, current and historical results, as well as for strategic decision-making and forecasting future results. Given management's use of these non-GAAP measures, the Company believes these measures are important to investors in understanding the Company's operating results as seen through the eyes of management. These non-GAAP measures are not prepared in accordance with US GAAP or intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP; the non-GAAP measures should be reviewed together with the US GAAP measures, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin includes adjustments for costs related to the non-operational polysilicon assets in Chongqing. Such costs mainly consist of non-cash depreciation costs, as well as utilities and maintenance costs associated with the temporarily idle polysilicon machinery and equipment, which will be or are in the process of being relocated to the Company's Xinjiang polysilicon manufacturing facility. The Company would expect a majority of these costs, such as depreciation, will continue to occur as part of the production cost at the Xinjiang facilities subsequent to the completion of the relocation plan. Once these assets are placed back in service, the Company will remove this adjustment from the non-GAAP reconciling item. The Company also uses EBITDA, which represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and EBITDA margin, which represents the proportion of EBITDA in revenue. Adjusted net income attributable to our shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS exclude costs related to the non-operational polysilicon assets in Chongqing as described above. Adjusted net income attributable to our shareholders and adjusted earnings per basic ADS also exclude costs related to share-based compensation. Share-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, management excludes this item from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that this adjustment for share-based compensation provides investors with a basis to measure the company's core performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without the period-to-period variability created by share-based compensation.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to comparable US GAAP measures is presented later in this document.
