Notes:

(1) Our polysilicon external sales volumeexcludes internal sales to our Chongqing wafer manufacturing subsidiary, whichutilizes polysilicon as raw material for the production of solar wafers. Thesales volume is the quantity of goods that have been received by customers, andthus the corresponding revenue has been recognized during the period indicated.

(2) Production cost and cash cost only refer toproduction in our Xinjiang polysilicon facilities. Production cost iscalculated by the inventoriable costs relating to production of polysilicon inXinjiang divided by the production volume in the period indicted. Cash cost iscalculated by the inventoriable costs relating to production of polysiliconexcluding depreciation expense in Xinjiang, divided by the production volume inthe period indicated.

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

Commentary

"Weare pleased to report that the second quarter of 2017 was a solid quarter withnew records on both polysilicon production volume and external sales volume.During the quarter, we produced 4,993MT of polysilicon and sold 4,497MT toexternal customers. We also conductedvarious experiments to improve polysilicon quality, particularly for themono-crystalline grade polysilicon, which had a slight impact to overallproduction cost and volume. However, weare seeing meaningful quality improvements. Production volume as well as shipment of mono-crystalline quality polysiliconhit a record high in June," said Dr. Gongda Yao, Chief Executive Officer ofDaqo New Energy.

"Due todownstream customer inventory management at the end of the first quarter, ASPfell in April, but ASP started to recover in May. Demand and pricing improved throughout the secondquarter, with the ASP in June approximately 15% higher than that in April. So far in the third quarter, customer demand hasremained robust with pricing continuing to improve."

"In termsof the PV end market, China installed 24.4GW of solar PV in the first half of2017, representing a new record high and a 9% increase from the first half of2016. For the full year of 2017, China'sannual PV installation forecast is currently expected to exceed 35GW. Based on discussions with our customers, webelieve that China's PV market demand continues to be strong, driven bytop-runner projects as well as distributed generation. Globally, the U.S. andIndian markets are also seeing strong PV product demand. Starting in late July, we have seen a fairlysignificant shortage of polysilicon in the China market and continued improvementsin polysilicon pricing. With a muchstronger than expected solar PV installations in China, the annual total globalsolar installation in 2017 is likely to exceed 80 GW for the first time ever."

"Duringthe second quarter of 2017, the company generated $12.1 million in net incomeattributable to Daqo New Energy shareholders and $29.8 million in EBITDA with anEBITDA margin of 39.2%. In particular, ouroperating cash flow remains strong. Inthe first half of 2017, we generated $73.6 million in net cash provided byoperating activities."

"Goingforward, we will continue our efforts to improve quality throughout the year. With our high product quality and stablesupply capabilities, we continue to be a supplier of choice with strong demandfor our high quality polysilicon from our diverse customer base."

Outlook and Q3 2017guidance

The Company's annual maintenancefor the Xinjiang polysilicon facility is scheduled for late September andOctober. The annual maintenance is anticipatedto impact production volume by approximately two weeks. As a result, the Company expects to produce4,200 MT to 4,500MT of polysilicon and sell approximately 3,700MT to 4,000MTto external customers during the third quarter of 2017. The above external sales guidanceexcludes shipments of polysilicon to be used internally by our Chongqing solarwafer facility, which utilizes polysilicon for its wafer manufacturingoperation. Wafer sales volume isexpected to be approximately 25.0 million to 25.5 million pieces in the third quarterof 2017.

This outlook reflectsour current and preliminary view as of the date of this press release and maybe subject to change. Our ability to achieve these projections is subject torisks and uncertainties. See "Safe Harbor Statement" at the end of this pressrelease.
