China Housing & Land Development Authorizes Stock Repurchases

XI'AN, China, September 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Housing & Land Development, Inc., ("China Housing" or the "Company," NASDAQ: CHLN) today announced that the Board of Directors of the Company has authorized the repurchase of up to $5 million of the shares of the Company's common stock, effective in the third quarter of 2011. The Company originally announced its intent to repurchase shares of stock on its fourth quarter 2010 earnings conference call, but has not yet taken action on any stock repurchases to date. This announcement clarifies the timing and size of the share buyback announced on the Company's 2010 fourth quarter earnings conference call.

Mr. Pingji Lu, China Housing's Chairman of the Board commented, "The Board of Directors believes that the current share price does not reflect the company's true market value and has granted us approval to proceed with a share buyback program. We believe that the repurchase program is a good investment of available funds and underscores our commitment to enhancing shareholder value."

The shares will be purchased from time to time at prevailing market prices, through open market purchases. There is no guarantee as to the exact number of shares that will be repurchased by the Company and the Company may discontinue purchases at any time that the Board of Directors determines additional purchases are not warranted. The repurchase program is expected to continue over the next 12-24 months.
