Sunshine 100 China Holdings defaults on SGX-listed bond payment

CHINESE developer Sunshine 100 China Holdings has defaulted on US$178.9 million of debt and interest payments due Sunday (Dec 5), as the direct fallout of the woes of property companies in China continues to impact investors in Singapore.
Sunshine 100 was due to repay the US$170 million of principal and US$8.9 million of interest on its 10.5 per cent senior notes due 2021, which is listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX).
But in a bourse filing on Dec 5, the company said it is unable to meet its debt obligations on the bonds “owing to liquidity issues arising from the adverse impact of a number of factors including the macroeconomic environment and the real estate industry”.

The default will also trigger cross default provisions under certain other debt instruments entered into by the company and its subsidiaries which may become immediately due and payable if the creditors choose to accelerate.
Sunshine 100 said that it has not received any notice by any creditors regarding action to accelerate.
The company in August suspended trading of its US$219.6 million 13 per cent senior green notes due 2022, which is also listed on the SGX.
