LDK Solar Co., Ltd.

LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (NYSE: LDK), announced today the pricing of $400 million of 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2013 pursuant to Rule 144A under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The notes will pay cash interest semiannually at a rate of 4.75% per annum and in certain circumstances, will be convertible into LDK Solar's American depositary shares, cash or a combination of cash and American depositary shares. The initial conversion rate, subject to adjustment, is 25.4534 LDK Solar American depositary shares per US$1,000 principal amount of notes, which is equal to the initial conversion price of approximately US$39.29 per American depositary share, which represents an approximate 25% premium to the closing price of $31.43 on April 9, 2008. The closing of the offering is expected to occur on April 15, 2008.

LDK Solar expects to use the net proceeds of the offering to enter into prepaid forward contracts with one or more of the initial purchasers and/or their affiliates to repurchase approximately $200 million worth of its American depositary shares. In addition, LDK Solar expects to use approximately 75% of the remaining net proceeds to fund the construction of a polysilicon manufacturing plant, approximately 20% of the remaining net proceeds to fund the capacity expansion of its wafer production facilities and 5% of the remaining net proceeds to fund other general corporate activities.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities. Any offers of the securities will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum. The sale of the notes and the American depositary shares issuable upon conversion have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.
