Xinyuan Real Estate Announces New Bond Repurchase Program
BEIJING, January 22, 2020 -- Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. ("Xinyuan" or "the Company") (NYSE: XIN), an NYSE-listed real estate developer and property manager, today announced that effective January 20, 2020, the Board of Directors approved a new bond repurchase program of up to US$50 million. The new authorization is valid through December 31, 2021, and replaces the prior repurchase authorization that expired on December 31, 2019.
“This new repurchase program demonstrates the Board’s confidence in our business model, our strong financial position and the sustainability of our free cash flow,” said Mr. Yong Zhang, Chairman of Xinyuan. “We will opportunistically continue our repurchase program while maintaining ample liquidity. This gives us the flexibility to optimize debt structure while continuing to support growth.”
Bonds will be selected for repurchase at the Company’s discretion, based on price, timing and other considerations. Repurchases under this program will be made through a combination of open market and privately negotiated transactions.
The Company gives no assurance that the repurchase authorization will be completed either fully or partially. Furthermore, there is no assurance as to what price, if any, will be paid for any series of Bonds.
This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in the United States or any other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
