"We made significant progress during the first quarter in reducing our cost structure allowing us to generate solid operating cash flows, pay down debt, and report a profit despite the decline in sales," said Mr. Yong Zhang, Xinyuan's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We have recently seen an uptick in demand in the second quarter as buyers are taking advantage of attractive pricing in the marketplace and are drawn to the unique characteristics of Xinyuan's properties. While we are hopeful that these trends will continue, we will continue to focus on the areas of our business that we can control, including tightly managing our cost structure and preserving capital."

"We remain very optimistic about Xinyuan's long-term opportunity in China. Our focus on Tier II cities with a flexible and scalable business model should allow us to take advantage of the higher growth in these markets as well as benefit from government initiatives. We are well positioned for growth in the near and long-term with a lower cost structure, strong cash position, and a capable management team."

Regarding the average selling price (ASP) decline, 4.2% of the 5.4% drop was due to mix as softness in the higher ASP Suzhou projects was partially offset by a stronger performance of the lower priced projects.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2009 was US$6.5 million, or 16.2% of revenue, compared to a gross loss of US$75.8 million, or (21.8%) of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2008 and a gross profit of US$36.6 million, or 29.2% of revenue, in the first quarter of 2008. During the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company recognized estimated future losses of $22.9 million according to POC accounting on its Suzhou International City Garden project and recorded an impairment charge on the same project of $58.4 million.

SG&A expenses were US$4.7 million for the first quarter of 2009 compared to US$9.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 and $10.9 million for the first quarter of 2008. As a percentage of total revenue, SG&A expenses declined by approximately 370 basis points to 11.6% compared to 15.3% in the fourth quarter of 2008. SG&A expenses increased by approximately 290 basis points compared to 8.7% in the first quarter of 2008 primarily due to lower revenues.

The sequential improvement is attributed to lower advertising and promotion spending (US$1.3 million), lower compensation expense on lower headcount (US$1.0 million), lower professional fees (US$0.7 million), and lower stock-based compensation of (US$0.2 million).

Share of Income of Equity Investee

In the first quarter of 2009, the Company recognized book income of US$1.0 million from its 45% stake in Zhengzhou Jiantou Xinyuan Real Estate Co. Ltd ("Jiantou") compared to a loss of US$0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 and income of US$3.6 million in the first quarter of 2008.

Balance Sheet

At March 31, 2009, Xinyuan reported US$181.3 million in cash compared to US$193.6 million as of December 31, 2008. Total debt outstanding was US$342.5 million, a reduction of $25.2 million compared to US$367.7 million at the end of the fourth quarter 2008. Xinyuan's book value at the end of the first quarter was US$402.1 million, or US$2.53 per share, and US$5.06 per ADS.

2009 Outlook

Second quarter 2009 GFA sales are expected to range from 95,000 to 110,000 square meters, an increase of over 100% from the first quarter of 2009 due to the recent strength in demand. Second quarter revenue is expected to total US$75.0 to $85.0 million and the net income is expected to be in the range of US$2.0 to $4.0 million.

With a significant increase in GFA sales since March 2009 but with limited visibility on the sustainability of this trend, the Company is increasing its previous full year guidance moderately. Full year 2009 GFA sales are anticipated to be in the range of 350,000 to 375,000 square meters versus previous guidance of 250,000 to 290,000 square meters. 2009 revenues are expected to be US$270 to US$295 million versus previous guidance of $225 million to $250 million. Full year 2009 net income is projected to be $8.0 million to $13.0 million. No new projects are included in these projections although the Company is evaluating new projects according to market conditions.

Mr. Zhang commented, "Our priorities for the remainder of 2009 are maintaining our improving sales momentum while appropriately managing overhead and operating expenses, strengthening our management team, and pacing our development projects commensurate with market demand. We have made substantial progress in these areas with outsourcing of the sales function beginning to bear fruit so far in the second quarter of 2009 and our cost reduction actions since the fourth quarter of 2008 resulting in a significant reduction in expenses in the first quarter of 2009. Given the recent improvement in demand, we are conservatively increasing the development pace on our large projects in Suzhou, Kunshan, and Chengdu, but will continue to focus on efficiently and prudently deploying our capital."

Percentage of Completion Accounting

Xinyuan's projects recognize revenue under the percentage of completion method. This requires the Company to re-evaluate our estimates of future revenues and costs on a quarterly basis project by project. Cumulative revenue is determined by multiplying cumulative contract sales proceeds times cumulative incurred cost divided by total estimated project cost. Cumulative cost of sales is calculated by multiplying cumulative incurred cost times cumulative contract sales divided by total estimated project revenue. Whenever Xinyuan makes changes to expected total project life profit margins, a "catch-up" adjustment must be made in the quarter of change to account for the difference between profit previously recognized using the previous profit margin estimate and the comparable profit using the new profit margin estimates. Further, if the updated profit margin indicates that the Company will have to sell units at a price less than our costs to develop them, it must recognize the full expected gross loss over the life of the project at that time regardless of whether the units have been sold. Additionally for such unprofitable projects the Company must also determine whether an impairment exists, and, if so, write down the cost to the fair value of the project which, in turn, may be less than the basis after recognizing the effect of future losses. In the fourth quarter of 2008, Suzhou ICG was the only such unprofitable project subject to recognition of total project gross loss and impairment reviews. There were no significant changes in estimates in the first quarter of 2009.
