Beijing, October 7, 2022 -- Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. (“Xinyuan” or the “Company”) (NYSE: XIN), an NYSE-listed real estate developer operating primarily in China
and also in other countries, announces that it has not made certain interest payments on its outstanding 14% senior notes issued on January 25, 2021 (the “2024 Notes”), at maturity on January 25, 2024, and its outstanding 14.5% senior notes issued
on September 17, 2020 (the “2023 Notes”, and together with the 2024 Notes, the “Notes”), at maturity on September 17, 2023. The total amount of interest due and payable under the Notes is USD 37.2 million. The Company further announces that a principal amount of approximately USD 229.6 million became due and payable under the 2023 Notes owing to its holders' exercise of their right to require the Company to repurchase the 2023
Notes in accordance with the indenture dated September 17, 2020. The Company has been negotiating with the major holders of the Notes to resolve the matter. The Company has also engaged Alvarez & Marsal Corporate Finance Limited and Latham
& Watkins LLP to advise on its related debt matters.
The Notes were offered outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). The Notes have not been
registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell the Notes, nor a
solicitation for an offer to purchase the Notes in the U.S. or any other jurisdiction.
