LDK Solar Increases Guidance

LDK Solar Co. (NYSE:LDK) has increased its third quarter revenue outlook and narrowed its expected losses in response to an improving solar market. This is well needed news for the struggling solar company, which is currently holding its lowest amount of cash for close to 4 years. The company expects $180 million in the third quarter of 2013.

LDK is the second largest provider of solar-wafers, trailing only behind GCL-Poly Energy Holdings(HKSE:3800).
