Major PV module materials and N-type mono IBC (Interdigitated Back Contact) bifacial module manufacturer Jolywood has recently secured over US$200 million for its first 2.1GW IBC solar production facility in a non-public share offering. 

Jolywood said in financial filings that the non-public share offering resulted in raising around RMB 1.366 billion (US$210 million) for the production plant, which had been initially funded from in-house resources. 

PV Tech previously reported limited production had started at the new facility in mid-2017.
