BEIJING, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. ("Xinyuan" or "the Company") (NYSE: XIN), a residential real estate developer with a primary focus on high growth cities in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter 2014.

Highlights for the Second Quarter 2014

  • Total gross floor area ("GFA") sales were 149,600 square meters, a 17.7% increase from 127,100 square meters sold in the first quarter of 2014, and a 1.6% increase from 147,200 square meters sold in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Total second quarter revenues were US$166.8 million, a 26.3% decrease from US$226.4 million recorded in the first quarter of 2014 and a 16.0% decrease from US$198.5 million reported in the second quarter of 2013. Contract sales totaled US$198.7 million, a 27.4% decrease from US$273.9 million recorded in the first quarter of 2014 and a 1.4% increase from US$196.0 million recorded in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Selling, General, and Administrative ("SG&A") expenses as a percent of total revenue totaled 21.4% compared to 10.7% in the first quarter of 2014 and 7.4% in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Net income was US$6.8 million, a 32.0% decrease from US$10.1 million in the first quarter of 2014 and an 82.6% decrease from US$39.4 million reported in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Diluted net earnings per American Depositary Share ("ADS") attributable to shareholders were US$0.08, compared to diluted net earnings per ADS of US$0.12 in the first quarter of 2014 and US$0.54 per ADS in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, increased by US$28.5 million to US$683.5 million as of June 30, 2014 from US$655.0 million as of March 31, 2014. Short and long term debt increased by US$363.6 million from US$947.2 million as of March 31, 2014 to US$1,310.8 million as of June 30, 2014.
  • The Company repurchased 0.91 million ADSs at a total cost of approximately US$3.8 million in the second quarter.

Mr. Yong Zhang, Xinyuan's Chairman, said, "Overall, China's real estate market slowed down in the second quarter due to credit tightening and adjustment in the property market after two years of strong returns for developers. We experienced a sequential and year over year GFA sales increase in the second quarter in a challenging environment. While we did not reduce the price of any of our existing main projects in the second quarter, we experienced lower ASP's due to the lower price of our three newly launched projects in Zhengzhou, Xingyang and Jinan, each of which is in line with its respective locations. These new projects which commenced pre-sales in the second quarter, contributed approximately 41% of GFA sales in the quarter. We did not acquire any new land parcels during the second quarter however we recently announced a land acquisition in early August."

"In the second half of the year, we expect to remain active with our project activity. We have five new projects that are scheduled to launch during the remainder of this year. Consequently, we expect our sales revenue and profit recognition for the full year to be back-end loaded," concluded Mr. Zhang.

Financial Results for the Second Quarter 2014

Contract Sales

Contract sales totaled US$198.7 million in the second quarter compared to US$273.9 million in the first quarter of 2014 and US$196.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. The Company's GFA sales were 149,600 square meters in the second quarter of 2014 versus 127,100 square meters in the first quarter of 2014 and 147,200 square meters in the second quarter of 2013. The average selling price ("ASP") per square meter sold was RMB8,155 (US$1,329) in the second quarter of 2014 versus RMB13,181 (US$2,155) in the first quarter of 2014 and RMB8,312 (US$1,332) in the second quarter of 2013.

Three new projects became available for sale in the second quarter of 2014, Xingyang Splendid I with sellable GFA of 117,195 square meters, Zhengzhou Thriving Family with sellable GFA of 142,487 square meters and Jinan Royal Palace with sellable GFA of 448,135 square meters. These three projects contributed approximately 40.7% of XIN's GFA sales in the quarter. In addition, our Suzhou Lake Royal Palace project obtained its sales permit in late June and will recognize sales and revenue beginning July, 2014.

The increase in SG&A expenses compared to the 2014 first quarter was mainly due to selling and marketing expenses related to newly launched projects, and the payment of project bonus to senior management. Excluding these items, SG&A remained at the same level as the first quarter of 2014.

Net income for the second quarter of 2014 was US$6.8 million compared to US$10.1 million for the first quarter of 2014 and US$39.4 million for the same period in 2013.

The balance of the Company's real estate property under development at the end of the second quarter was US$1,540.8 million compared to US$868.7 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014. The increase of property under development was primarily due to the land premium of newly acquired four land parcels in the first quarter recognized as property under development after paying off all the land premium in the second quarter.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
