Trina Solar's (NYSE: TSL) latest quarterly earnings have been adjusted upwards following a recent arbitration victory. The company announced that a $20.4 million award it received in a settlement over a solar module purchase agreement has affected certain line items from its Q4 and fiscal 2013.

For the full year, the company's attributable net result has also been adjusted. It has been narrowed to a $72.0 million loss ($1.01 per ADS), from the originally reported shortfall of $77.7 million ($1.09).
Trina Solar's ADSes dropped slightly following the news, declining by 0.2%, or $0.04, to close the day at $16.50.
