Xinyuan Real Estate was Reclassified as Low Refinancing Risks Corporate
by Fitch Ratings
BEIJING, February 21, 2020 -- Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. ("Xinyuan" or "the Company") (NYSE: XIN), an NYSE-listed real estate developer and property manager, today announced that the Fitch Rating re-classified Xinyuan as the low refinancing risks corporate on February 19th.
On February 17th, Fitch Ratings released a report and publicly rated Chinese corporate issuers facing a significant amount of capital market refinancing risks. We immediately noticed a factual mistake that a 1.13b CNY on shore bond redemption in 2019 has been neglected, and it’s still counted as due in 1H 2020 in the report. This has inflated the Company’s near-term bond by over 100%. As a result, Xinyuan was listed as one of the high refinancing risks companies with six other small-to medium real estate developers.
Xinyuan immediately reflected with Fitch Ratings regarding the mistaken number used in the report. On February 19th, Fitch Ratings published an amended report where Xinyuan’s refinancing risk has been adjusted from “high” to “low”. On February 21st, Fitch Ratings also sent out a press release reiterating Xinyuan’s low refinancing risks.
Xinyuan adheres to the strategy of stable operations, which we have always been highly focused on the security of the Company's cash flow. Company also has a series of high-quality project in reserves. The Novel Coronavirus’s impact is limited and within the capability of Xinyuan’s cashflow management throughout the year.
