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.

In the second quarter of 2014, the Company's total revenue was US$166.8 million compared to US$226.4 million in the first quarter of 2014 and US$198.5 million in the second quarter of 2013.

As a percentage of total revenue, SG&A expenses were 21.4% compared to 10.7% in the first quarter of 2014 and 7.4% in the second quarter of 2013. 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

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.
