According to a report, Sunac said in the announcement that the company does not expect to make the scheduled interest payments on four US dollar-denominated bonds, with a combined issue size of US$2.742 billion and a total of US$104.7 million in spot interest. Among them, the notes due in October 2023 have exceeded their grace period and the bondholders have not received the interest so far, which constitutes a default.

The USD bond issue, which is overdue for interest payment, is US$750 million, with an annual interest rate of 7.95% and US$29,478,600 in interest payable for the current period, the report said.

It is reported that Sunac’s outstanding USD bonds amount to US$7.7 billion, which is the highest among Communist China developers. In addition, Sunac has one RMB 4 billion bond with 10% of principal due on May 15th and another RMB 1.44 billion bond due on June 13th.
