Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. Announces ADR Ratio Change
Beijing, November 17, 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 a ratio
change of its American Depositary Receipts ("ADR") from one (1) ADR representing two (2) ordinary shares to a new ratio of one (1) ADR representing sixteen (16) ordinary shares (the "Ratio Change"). The effective date of the Ratio Change is
expected to be November 28, 2022.
Pursuant to the Ratio Change, effective November 28, 2022, ADR holders will be required on a mandatory basis to surrender their ADRs for cancellation and exchange to receive one (1) new ADR for every eight (8) old
ADRs (Old CUSIP: 98417P105). No fractional ADRs will be allocated. The aggregated fractions, if any, will be sold and the net proceeds will be distributed to the entitled ADR holders. The Company's depositary, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., will
contact the ADR holders and arrange for the exchange of their existing ADRs for new ADRs.
For ADR holders, the Ratio Change will have the same effect as a one-for-eight reverse ADR split. The ordinary shares of Xinyuan will not be affected by this change.
The Ratio Change is aimed at bringing the price of the Company's ADRs in compliance with the NYSE's continued listing criterion of a minimum share price of $1 over a 30 trading-day period, though Xinyuan cannot
guarantee that the Ratio Change will be effective in achieving this goal.
