Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Worldwide Energy & Manufacturing USA Inc., provider of photovoltaic solar modules and other mechanical and electronic parts for residential, commercial, industrial, and public utility applications around the world, indicated today that 2010 revenues for the company are expected to increase 160% over the previous year, topping out at between $160 million and $165 million. The estimate is based largely on contracts and commitments for the company’s fast growing Solar Division, with its AmeriSolar brand of solar modules. The company also anticipates increased production at its new state-of-the-art manufacturing and research facility in Nantong, China, which should result in improved margins.

Worldwide’s CEO, Jimmy Wang, said of the anticipated growth, “We expect to achieve significant revenue growth for the fiscal year ending 2010 and going forward given the strong growth we see in the global solar market and increasing demand for our AmeriSolar PV modules. Europe continues to be a strong market for our products, particularly for us in Italy and the U.K, and we anticipate that Asia and the U.S. will become growing markets in the next three to four years, where we are already well positioned. Solar is a very fast growing industry within the clean tech sector and we are confident that we are taking the right steps to aggressively grow our customer base as spending on renewable energy continues to rise.”

Worldwide Energy & Mfg USA is headquartered in South San Francisco, but with its subsidiaries and operations in Shanghai and other parts of China. The company manufactures a wide range of mechanical, electronic, and fiber optic products, but with special focus on its growing photovoltaic products.

Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (WEMU.OB) 2Q Data Shows Strong Market Position

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc., www.wwmusa.com – the San Francisco, CA-based developer/manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) panel, electronics, fiber optics and associated mechanical parts with a 16-year track record emphasizing sophisticated engineering, issued a 2Q (ending June 30) operational status update today.

A global provider to the aerospace, automotive, medical equipment, wireless telecom and especially solar industries, WEMU has a manufacturing facility in China allowing it to meet demands at half the price of similar products made in the US.

Securing 15 new solar customer contracts in 2Q (mostly in France, Germany, Italy and the UK), WEMU’s Solar Division now clocks in at roughly 60 customers, with an average of 1 MW per order from the new clientele (largest single client 17.5 MW) and a $100M backlog for the Company as a whole. The Company anticipates that the vast majority of pending orders will be ready and shipped by year’s end.

A 270% increase over last year shows delivery of some $38M+ orders in 2Q, with the solar division alone shipping $35M (370% increase).

With the meteoric rise of global demand for PV panels continuing unabated, even stronger demand is projected for the second half of 2010.

Solarbuzz, the widely known and respected solar research and consulting firm, doubled its 2010 projections for the size of the PV market (15.2 GW) compared to last year, and the industry as a whole saw revenue increase across the board by roughly 300% ($12B) in 1Q FY10 compared to 2009.

CEO of WEMU, Jimmy Wang, noted the healthy order backlog and recent tacking-on of additional clientele as strong indicators of the Company’s increasing reputation within the industry as a quality provider, and projected extremely strong financials and solid returns to WEMU shareholders for the second half of 2010.

WEMU’s small but vibrant engineering team fulfills orders as a contract manufacturer and engineering services company through wholly-owned subsidiary, Shanghai Intech Electro-Mechanical Products Co, Ltd., which provides its expertise as an engineering firm in a variety of functions for component manufacturers and purchasers seeking to do business in China.

With over 100 high-tech component customers in the US alone, WEMU has developed a sophisticated network of sub-contractors and relationships, establishing itself as a major industry conduit well-poised to execute its strategy of ramping up its footprint in the PV market.

Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (WEMU.OB) CEO Provides Shareholder Letter; Updates Investors on Company Progress

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc., a U.S.-based China manufacturing company focused on producing products for customers in the industries of solar energy, aerospace, wireless telecommunications, medical equipment and automotive, today issued a press release containing CEO Jimmy Wang’s letter to shareholders. The entire letter has been posted below.

Dear Shareholder:

I want to personally thank you for your support of Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (“Worldwide”). I also want to report to you our achievements over the last twelve months, as well as our future plans.

First, I want you to know that we recently applied for listing on NASDAQ. Along with our 4th quarter numbers, we will qualify for NASDAQ:CM when we reach a bid price of $4.00 for two consecutive days. As you know, a NASDAQ listing will increase our visibility dramatically, and will open up a vast network of stockbrokers who can purchase our stock for their investors. We are working on various investor outreach programs through RedChip Companies. We have participated in 5 investor conferences, appeared on RedChip national radio numerous times, met with dozens of fund managers and hundreds of stock brokers and investors. We will continue with these efforts with the intent of creating greater awareness of our Company, our goals and achievements. A major impetus for applying for a NASDAQ listing is due to the many stockbrokers who have expressed interest in our stock, but who have been unable to take a position because our stock was not listed on the NASDAQ exchange.

As you know, I founded Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. in 1993. We went public in 2004 through a reverse merger. We began as a contract manufacturer, making mechanical, electronics, and fiber optic products for customers in the aerospace industry, in wireless telecommunications, in the semi-conductor industry, in instrumentation, in the medical equipment industry, and in the automotive industry. Every year since going public we have achieved a four year average revenue growth of 83.83% and profit growth of 46.75%. We have built a very elite customer list that includes Danaher, General Electric, Tyco Electronics, Smith Industries and about one hundred more.

In January of 2008, we launched our solar division, recruiting top flight sales reps and scientists from very large solar manufacturers. This division has already delivered revenues of $34.47 million and we now have a backlog of $54 million for solar orders for 2009. We expect to see continued triple digit growth in 2008-2010 and beyond. My vision is to build a $1 billion company within 5-7 years. I believe we will reach approximately $100 million in revenue in fiscal 2009, from a projected $45 million in fiscal 2008. We will report our year-end results in the next few weeks.

On March 4th, 2009 we announced that we filed eight patents on our solar technology. We believe that we have developed a better, more efficient, more structurally sound solar module than our competitors, thus providing us with a strong competitive advantage.

Some investors may ask how the world- wide recession will affect our growth in 2009. As I stated earlier, we currently have $54 million in solar orders for 2009 and believe that we will continue to receive new orders from our existing and new customers.

In July of 2008, we completed our first financing of $5 million at $4.50 per share. This was a straight equity deal with warrants priced at $7.00 and $9.00. This money was used to build our own solar factory in Ningbo, China, along with the acquisition of Detron, a power supply company located in Shanghai, China, that has research and development capabilities. The solar factory has the capacity of 80MW, which translates into approximately $224 million in revenue at full capacity. We expect to have higher gross and net margins in our solar division now that we have our own factory along with continued improvement in quality and development of our solar modules.

We continue to explore opportunities as well as expand our solar sales and distribution in the USA and Latin America. We currently sell our products in Europe and South Korea. Our research shows that the USA has an abundance of solar rebate programs for both the commercial and residential markets at the local, state and federal level. We are well-positioned to sell our solar modules to large institutions in the U.S. Our current projections of $100 million in revenue do not actually include any sales forecasts in the U.S.

Despite the difficult economic environment, I remain confident that our company will continue to grow and prosper. My vision remains clear regarding the opportunities that exist and the ones that will develop in the United States this year, and perhaps in years to come. I appreciate the loyal support I have received from many of Worldwide’s shareholders, and will continue to do everything possible to be worthy of this loyalty.

Sincerely,

Jimmy Wang
CEO, Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc.
