Gintech Energy has agreed to merge with Solartech Energy and Neo Solar Power (NSP).

The decision follows a resolution adopted by the company’s boards of directors to execute a related letter of intent (LoI) signed on 16 October this year.

The proposed merger will be implemented on an equal and mutually beneficial basis, without allowing any of the three companies to act as the acquiring or acquired party. The merged entity will be named United Renewable Energy (UREC).

Once formed, UREC expects to expand both domestic and overseas investment in solar cell modules, as well as build a self-owned module brand and enter new power plant development businesses.
