The Annual Report could not be filed on or before the April 30, 2021 filing deadline because the Company’s Audit Committee, with the assistance of advisors, is in the process of conducting an independent review of certain transactions to assess their potential impact on the Company’s 2020 financial statements.

The delayed filing is not impacting the Company’s day-to-day operations, and it has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of Xinyuan ADSs on the NYSE under the symbol “XIN”.
