ADVISORY, March 3, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (HSOL), a vertically integrated manufacturer of silicon ingots, wafers, PV cells and modules, will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City's Times Square.
In honor of the occasion, Dr. Peter Xie, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (HSOL) will ring the Closing Bell.
In December 2010, Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. had its name changed from Solarfun Power Holdings Co., Ltd. The name change reflects the Company's ongoing efforts to strengthen its brand worldwide and the strategic business partnership with its largest shareholder, the South Korea-based Hanwha Chemical Corporation.
In February this year, Hanwha SolarOne also changed its NASDAQ ticker symbol to HSOL, which represents the completion of its corporate rebranding effort, following last year's significant investment from Hanwha Chemical and its subsequent name change to Hanwha SolarOne.
