When fully converted, the bonds will amount to 28.2% of Sunpower on a fully-diluted basis, assuming full conversion at the initial conversion price of S$0.50.

The proceeds from the issue of the convertible bonds will be used for its expansion in green investment projects.

On 7 December 2016, Sunpower announced that it was part of a consortium that had successfully secured a RMB 3.2 billion public-private-partnership (PPP) project in Shantou Chaonan, Guangdong province

An investment budget of RMB 2 billion has been allocated to phase 1.

The entire PPP project includes cogeneration and centralized steam facilities, an industrial wastewater treatment plant, a water recycling plant, and related ancillary assets.

Sunpower is expected to participate in the design, build and operation of cogeneration and centralized facilities, and will not be involved in the industrial wastewater treatment and water recycling plant.

The Group has secured BOT projects for 3 centralized steam and electricity facilities over the past year in Hebei, Jiangsu, and Anhui.

It posted net profit attributable to shareholders of RMB 87.5 million for the 9 months ended 30 Sep 2016, up 97.4% year-on-year.
