The third and fourth land parcels are adjacent to one another in the Er Qi District of Zhengzhou, which is located near the south 4th ring road of the city.

Mr. Yong Zhang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xinyuan, commented, "We have been quite active in recent months evaluating land purchase opportunities and are pleased to have secured four new parcels of land for development. We have strong development project experience in the Zhengzhou and Suzhou regions and are confident these new projects can generate strong investment returns for our shareholders. These new projects increase our project under planning inventory and are expected to contribute to our revenue stream for the next several years. As Xinyuan has dramatically increased its cash position via strong operational performance over the last year coupled with recent financial transactions, we are now utilizing the capital on our balance sheet to work on these exciting new projects and believe they can contribute favorably to Xinyuan's revenue and profit growth moving forward. We plan to remain active evaluating additional land purchase opportunities in 2013 and look forward to providing our shareholders with updates as we progress in the months ahead."
