Reorg on the Record: Greenland Holdings’ Bond Extension Should Be Worrisome for Investors…
China real estate high-yield bonds continue to show little cause for optimism. Greenland Holdings became the latest developer to launch a consent solicitation for all its outstanding offshore USD notes. In a now familiar pattern, the company had only recently reassured investors of its ability to make payments. The consent solicitation came less than five months after Greenland’s last such exercise, in June, for one series of notes. Its repeated attempt to amend and extend may be an indication that even state-controlled property companies aren’t immune to default.
The situation may become more worrisome as the Chinese saying of “保内弃外” or “ensuring onshore payments while giving up offshore bondholders” is heard being repeated among different developers and their onshore investor communities. Advisory firms have circled offshore bondholders helping them organize.
