SES SOLAR INC., (the “Company” or "SES USA") is the result of a reverse acquisition accomplished on September 27, 2006 between SES USA, a Delaware company, which had no operations and net assets of $39,069, and Société d'Energie Solaire SA (“SES Switzerland”), a Swiss company. SES USA acquired all of the outstanding shares of SES Switzerland. For accounting purposes, the acquisition has been treated as a recapitalization of SES Switzerland with SES Switzerland as the acquirer (reverse acquisition). SES Switzerland acquired 10,668,000 shares of SES USA common stock in the transaction. The historical financial statements prior to September 27, 2006 are those of SES Switzerland. The reverse acquisition resulted in a change of control of SES USA, with the former stockholders of SES Switzerland owning approximately 70% of SES USA and SES Switzerland becoming SES USA's wholly owned subsidiary.
SES Switzerland was formed in 2001 for the purpose of researching, developing, manufacturing and selling innovative products to the solar photovoltaic market. From its inception, SES Switzerland has focused primarily on manufacturing and installing silicon photovoltaic solar cells panels. The principal source of revenue for the Company has been the sale of photovoltaic panels in turn-key installations, manufactured in house or purchased from subcontractors, to electric companies, local governmental agencies and private house owners.
SES USA was engaged in a round of financing on November 7, 2006. SES USA issued 4,100,001 shares of common stock to third parties resulting in a dilution of the historical and former shareholders of SES Switzerland to approximately 66%

Société d’energie solaire develops new process to speed PV module assembly
Freiburg, June 2007. A patented new process by Société d’Energie Solaire (SES) of Geneva, Switzerland, allows simple, fast and reliable electrical connections between PV strings and junction boxes. To be shown for the first time at Intersolar (21-23 June 2007, Freiburg/Breisgau), the development offers numerous advantages through material savings, enables automated manufacture and offers high efficiencies to panel manufacturers and installers.
In the SES process the strings, instead of being soldered to the peripheral end-ribbon, are folded over the back of the cells, where they are soldered with a simple machine onto a flexible circuit. The circuit substrate is a DuPont™ Tedlar® PVF film laminated with DuPont Teijin Films™ Mylar® PET polyester film; the circuit has special contacts for attachment to the junction box and also serves to insulate the strings from the cells. After lamination, a special junction box, made by Huber & Suhner, is simply placed over the circuit and the connections are soldered.
The junction box is then filled, with reduced use of silicone, sealed and the lid fitted. The box is designed to allow ventilation between itself and the backsheet, so as to prevent heat build-up. SES tried numerous films and film combinations for this printed circuit, says M. Philippe Crisafulli, project manager at SES. “The substrate for this application has to meet many requirements
