Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc., a U.S.-based China manufacturing company specializing in products for customers in the industries of solar energy, aerospace, wireless telecommunications, medical equipment and automotive industries, today announced record revenue and net income for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. The Company has scheduled a conference call for Tuesday, April 14, 2009 at 4:15 p.m. Eastern time (1:15 p.m. Pacific) to discuss these results. Details of the call follow below.

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2008 were $45,913,957 compared to $12,132,710 for the year ended December 31, 2007, an increase of $33,781,247, or approximately 278.4%. The primary reason for the increase was due to the Company's solar energy division, which started in February 2008 and generated sales of $30,999,962. Additionally, the 55% acquisition on October 14, 2008 of Shanghai Intech-Detron Electric and Electronic Company Limited ("Detron") generated sales of $1,720,965 for the Company in the fourth quarter. Detron is a power supply factory in Shanghai, China, with designing and R&D capabilities. Detron generated sales of $1,720,965 for the Company in the fourth quarter.

For the year ended December 31, 2008, gross profits were $6,167,671 (13.4% of sales) compared to $3,782,089 in 2007 (31% of sales). The decline of gross profits as a percentage of sales (17.6 percentage points) occurred because the Company utilized more sub-contractors for the production of its solar modules, along with softness in the price of solar modules. It is expected that gross margins will improve as the Company continues its transition to becoming a direct manufacturer for its solar module products and as the newly established factory is now fully operational. As well, the outlook for solar modules margins will improve as the raw material necessary for the production of modules are expected to decline.

Net profit for the year ended December 31, 2008 was $1,459,875 compared to $575,674 for the year ended December 31, 2007. The increase of $884,201, or 153.6%, was the result of higher sales from the Company's solar division. Earnings per share were $0.44 for the full year ended 2008 compared to $0.28 per share in 2007.

Mr. Jimmy Wang, CEO of Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing, stated: "We are very pleased to announce the best year end result in our company's history. Our Solar Energy division is performing beyond expectations and with our new solar factory and new solar contracts, we expect triple-digit growth both in revenue and net income in 2009. We are projecting $100 million in revenues and $5 million in net income for 2009."

He continued, "Already we have $52 million in backlog solar orders for 2009. Our new solar factory in Ningbo, China has the capacity to generate $225 million in revenue. Our gross margins and ultimately our net margins will increase substantially as we will manufacture all solar modules in our own factory. Our strong financial performance clearly demonstrates that the company has successfully made the transition into the renewable energy market as well as maintaining strength in its other contract manufacturing business. We have successful laid the foundation in 2008 to provide explosive growth in 2009."

Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2008, the current assets of Worldwide were $14,905,221 compared to current assets as of December 31, 2007 of $8,210,711. This represents an increase of $6,694,510 or approximately 44.9%. The increase in current assets was primarily the result of an increase in cash, accounts receivable, and inventory. The Company's cash increased by $2,980,651; largely as a result of the Company's sales in June 2008 of 1,055,103 shares of its common stock. As well, the Company had additional subscriptions for the sale of an aggregate of $252,027, or 56,007 shares of common stock. In addition, accounts receivable increased by 1,515,482, or 31.6%, as a result of the Company's sales growth. Accounts receivable were $4,790,506 for the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $3,275,024 for the year ended December 31, 2007. The last major factor contributing to the increase in current assets was the increase in inventory of $1,421,617. Inventory was $3,754,765 for the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $2,333,148 for the year ended December 31, 2007. Inventory increased as a result of the establishment in December of 2008 of the Ningbo Solar factory and the acquisition of Detron in October of 2008.

Current liabilities at December 31, 2008 totaled $6,622,731 compared with $4,447,946 at December 31, 2007. This represents an increase of $2,174,785 or 48.9%. The increase in current liabilities was due to an increase in accounts payable of $946,936, or 38.6%, as the result of the Company's growth. Accounts payables were $3,400,253 in December of 2008 compared to accounts payable of $2,453,317 in December of 2007. The other major contributor to the increase in current liabilities was liabilities due to our recent acquisition of Detron in October of 2008, which amounted to $1,243,024. The Company's current ratio improved to 2.25 to 1 for the period ended December 31, 2008 compared to 1.85 to 1 at 2007 year end.

Total assets were $19,092,295 for the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $8,762,841 for the year ended December 31, 2007. The increase of $10,329,454, or approximately 117.9%, was the result of the following factors: 1) Sale of unregistered securities for $4,597,587; 2) the acquisition of Detron and the establishment of the new solar factory in Ningbo, China, which resulted in increases in property plant and equipment of $808,045; 3) Property, Plant and equipment totaled $1,353,539 in the year ended December 31, 2008 compared to $545,494 in December of 2007; 4) increase in inventory and accounts receivable due to the Company's growth in 2008; and, 5) the purchase of the AmeriSolar brand name and technology.
