China Housing & Land Development, Inc. Announces Approval for a "Going Private" Transaction

XI'AN, China, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China Housing & Land Development, Inc. ("China Housing" or the "Company," NASDAQ: CHLN), a leading developer of residential and commercial properties in northwest China, today announced that the board of directors of the Company ("Board"), by unanimous written consent dated as of August 19, 2014, authorized and approved a "going private" transaction (the "Transaction") designed to eliminate CHLN's status as a public company in the U.S.

The Transaction would include a reverse stock split shares of our common stock, whereby every 50,000 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding will be converted into one whole share of our common stock. In lieu of issuing any fractional shares to stockholders as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Company will make a cash payment equal to $1.75 per pre-reverse stock split share to such stockholders. The funds for the Transaction will come from the Company's cash on hand.

The Board has formed a special committee of independent directors (the "Special Committee") consisting of four independent and disinterested directors, Messrs. Suiyin Gao, Yusheng Lin, Mingduo Yang and Maosheng Luo, to review the Transaction. The Special Committee retained advisors to assist it in its work and has unanimously determined that the Transaction is in the best interest of all stockholders. 

The Board, acting upon the unanimous recommendation of the Special Committee, approved the Transaction and resolved to recommend that the Company's stockholders vote to approve the Transaction. The Transaction is subject to the approval of stockholders holding a majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock.

The Company will call a special meeting of its stockholders for the purpose of voting on the adoption of the Transaction. If completed, the Transaction will, under laws of the State of Nevada, result in the Company becoming a privately held company and the shares of the Company would no longer be listed on the NASDAQ Global Market.

Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP serves as U.S. legal advisor to the Special Committee. Duff & Phelps, LLC serves as financial advisor to the Special Committee. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP serves as legal advisor to Duff & Phelps, LLC.
