Tencent Music Teams Up with WWF and Youcishan on Pioneering Music and Visual Art Crossover Project


SHENZHEN, China, Oct. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tencent Music Entertainment Group (Tencent Music or TME, NYSE: TME), the leading online music entertainment platform in China, teamed up with partners World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Beijing Youcishan Culture Media Co. Ltd to launch a music and art exhibition, dubbed "All Creation: Encounter with Animals", at Beijing’s UCCA Center for Contemporary Art. The opening ceremony was accompanied by artist sharing sessions, art visuals and art seminars on album creation, cross-discipline music art, and art charity initiatives.

The event is part of the newly unveiled "TME Art Project", under which TME will work with partners to aid in the development of high-value, essential works of music, including everything from stimulating creativity to promoting new hits and transforming them into iconic masterpieces. The project aims to create music with strong vitality, and to use art appreciation to promote socially responsible actions, thereby creating a better music industry and a better future for mankind.

The exhibition represents an industry breakthrough as a unique music and visual art crossover project in China. It pairs recordings by eight notable musicians, with the work of eight reputable artists. The musician and artist pairings include (musician/artist, respectively):

  • Good Meimei/¥ouada;
  • Li Li/Wu Chen;
  • Jiao Maiqi/Tang Yongxiang;
  • Plusone Wang/Daniel Sueiras Fanjul;
  • Chen Jingfei/Qiu Ruixiang;
  • Qin Hao/Shi Yongchun;
  • Terry Hou/Shinya Sato;
  • Chen Li/Huang Yishan.

The artists worked together to integrate art visuals with music for a collaborative album, which calls for the preservation of nature, wildlife, and further actions to protect a co-existing community of mankind and animals.

Through the combination of online promotion and offline salon activities, the breakthrough format of music and visual art crossover allows TME to provide the best outlet for individual emotional expressions and group emotional resonance. The resulting creative, immersive experience helps to unlock more value and encourage the production of more high-quality music content.

"As China’s leading online music platform, TME has been thinking about our social responsibility," said Silence Chen, TME’s head of Brand and PR Department. "Today, together with these beloved musicians and artists, we have seen the kind of goodwill that music and art can generate to help bring change to the world. Through the TME Art Project, we aim to stir inspiration for new works of music, use creative ways to reach a wider audience, and turn these musical pieces into classics that will be the legacy of our generation. We especially hope to advocate this kind of project with our partner WWF and others, in order to create more memorable, long-lasting experiences for the world."

The new "TME Art Project" aims to break barriers in the art world through various forms of crossover cooperation between music and visual artists, art exhibitions and art salons, intending to mutual promotion between art forms. The "All Creation: Encounter with Animals" exhibition is the first pioneering effort of the project.

This is also the first time that TME has cooperated with WWF. In the future, both sides will continue to use music to encourage people to cherish and care for animals and nature, and support protective actions for the harmonious coexistence of mankind and all wildlife. 

TME will create more imaginative opportunities with partners in art, music, and public welfare, based on the advantages of TME’s platform in user data and industry resources. The goal is to spur future development and professional respect for more dedicated creators and musicians, as well as create a better environment for artistic creation.

Daqo New Energy Updates Third Quarter 2020 Sales Guidance and Full Year 2020 Production Guidance


SHIHEZI, China, Oct. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE: DQ) ("Daqo New Energy", the "Company" or "we"), a leading manufacturer of high-purity polysilicon for the global solar PV industry, today announced updates to its previous polysilicon sales guidance for the third quarter of 2020 and production guidance for the full year 2020.

The Company estimates that its polysilicon sales to external customers during the third quarter of 2020 were approximately 13,643 MT, as compared to the previous guidance of approximately 17,000 MT to 17,500 MT.

Polysilicon’s average selling prices ("ASPs") have been increasing rapidly since July. Current market ASPs for mono-grade polysilicon are approximately $11.5~$12.5/kg, a significant improvement from approximately $7.0~$7.5/kg in the second quarter. The dramatic rise in ASPs, especially in September, caused postponement of purchasing orders from some customers. However, entering into October, the Company is seeing orders and product deliveries resuming to normal levels. We expect the inventory built up temporarily in September will be sold in the fourth quarter, as we expect to see strong end-market demand both domestically and abroad.

In addition, the Company successfully completed annual maintenance and resumed to full production in August. It produced approximately 18,406 MT of polysilicon during the third quarter of 2020, exceeding the previous guidance of 17,500 MT to 18,000 MT. The average total production cost and cash cost in the third quarter are expected to be approximately $5.82/kg and $4.88/kg, respectively. The ASP in the third quarter is expected to be approximately $9.13/kg, compared to $7.04/kg in the second quarter of 2020.

The Company also updated its full year polysilicon production guidance and now expects to produce 75,000 to 76,000 MT of polysilicon in 2020.


Daqo New Energy Corp. (NYSE: DQ) ("Daqo" or the "Company") is a leading manufacturer of high-purity polysilicon for the global solar PV industry. Founded in 2008, the Company is one of the world’s lowest cost producers of high-purity polysilicon. Daqo’s highly-efficient and technically advanced manufacturing facility in Xinjiang, China currently has a nameplate annual polysilicon production capacity of 70,000 metric tons.
