SunEdison adjusts Q4 2013 viewpoint

The company has updated its anticipations for key metrics for the 4th quarterly period and complete year 2013.

The company’s range of project completions for this year remains unaltered. But, in an attempt to preserve more long-standing project value, it has elected to keep extra solar projects on their balance sheet in 4th quarterly period rather than sell them.
