BAODING, China, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Limited (NYSE: YGE) ("Yingli Green Energy" or the "Company"), the largest vertically integrated photovoltaic ("PV") module manufacturer in the world, known as "Yingli Solar," today announced that the Company's subsidiaries in China and France agreed to cooperate with a leading French PV module manufacturer ("French Partner") to join forces to satisfy the requirements of the French national tender program ("French National Tender Program") under which the French Partner won large-volume tenders, according to the French Partner.

Under conditions to be detailed in subsequent agreements, the French Partner will manufacture PV modules in France using Yingli Solar's polycrystalline cells with optimized carbon footprint technology. As a globally leading manufacturer of crystalline polysilicon PV products, Yingli Green Energy expects to ensure state-of-the art cell technology with the expertise of a fully vertically integrated manufacturer combined with its French Partner's downstream expertise and local assembling capacity.

In the recent rounds of public tenders under French National Tender Program, 17 out of 38 PV developers won projects with modules resulting from the partnership, representing 185 MW out of 380 MW in total, all of which have been approved by the French government, according to our French Partner. The projects are expected to be installed within the next 24 months. In addition to the purchase price of electricity to be produced, the French authorities appreciated the low carbon footprint of the projects and their contributions to research and development, innovation, and employment in France.

"Roughly 50% of the projects in the recent rounds of public tenders under French National Tender Program are expected to use locally made modules powered by cells supplied by Yingli," said Arnaud Catrice, Managing Director of Yingli France, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yingli Green Energy. "This clearly demonstrates that project developers trust this alliance will have a long-term positive impact on the French PV industry. The partnership will not only reinforce our leading positions in French market, but also contribute for a promising local solar industry in a long run."

"We are delighted to join forces with our distinguished French partner and demonstrate once more the weight and importance of international cooperation for the development of solar PV as an affordable and clean source of energy in the global energy mix. PV module manufacturing is part of the value chain, and it creates local jobs that bring value to the country in which the modules are installed," said Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy.

The national tender system in France is applied for solar projects with installation capacity above 250 kW. The project developers or owners are required to enter a national solar tendering program, French National Tender Program, held by the Commission de Regulation de l'energie, or Energy Regulation Commission (CRE). According to public information, a total of up to 400 MWs of solar projects have been selected following a ranking method based on, among other criteria, the purchase price of electricity to be produced, the project's carbon footprint, and its share of and contribution to innovative research and development. Following the project ranking conducted by the CRE, the Ministry of Energy of French validates the winning projects to be built and grid-connected within 24 months.

Cross Match Acquires DigitalPersona and Appoints New CEO Apr 21, 2014 08:07AM

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cross Match Holdings, sponsored by Francisco Partners, and DigitalPersona today announced a definitive merger agreement that will combine the two companies. With more than 300 employees, an extensive network of partners and millions of users relying on its solutions worldwide, the merged companies will have a strong global presence in the government, financial, retail, defense, law enforcement and corporate markets. Rich Agostinelli, industry veteran and current CEO of DigitalPersona, will assume the same role for the combined company, which will continue to be headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

"While the two companies will operate independently in the near-term, the complementary nature of their products, technologies and global support organizations should make for a relatively quick and seamless integration," Agostinelli said. "Cross Match and DigitalPersona are both leaders in biometric technologies with a strong brand presence in global markets, however there's little overlap in our portfolios. There is a lot of natural synergy," he said. "As a result, we'll be able to offer our customers a portfolio of solutions that's unparalleled in our industry."

"It's an exciting time to lead an organization like this," Agostinelli added. "Biometrics is now widely accepted as a critical component of effective security systems for logical and physical access control, and is rapidly expanding from its roots in law enforcement, military and civil ID programs, to broader applications ranging from microfinance to mobile commerce to e-passports. This merger positions us perfectly to capitalize on these opportunities."

Mike Kohlsdorf, operating partner for Francisco Partners, said the complementary technologies and geographic strengths of each company made the merger attractive for Cross Match. "Cross Match is strong in multimodal biometric technologies and government solutions. DigitalPersona is strong in identity verification and the commercial sector, especially finance, retail and healthcare," he said. "So, the fit is highly complementary." 

"The merger also broadens our global coverage, especially in Asia and Europe," added Kohlsdorf, who served as interim CEO of Cross Match prior to the merger. "The combination holds a lot of promise for our customers. We will be able to bring them some highly differentiated offerings as we bring the organizations together."
