ICYMI: Chinese Developers’ Bond Spreads Widen as Focus on Three Red Lines Increases
In case you missed it – China’s real estate developers’ high yield Index underperformed its peers witnessing a sharp drop of 6% in June and down 3.7% YTD. Investor concerns were apparent since the start of Q2 with Z-Spreads widening across certain Chinese real estate developers. China Evergrande’s Z-Spread widened by a massive 1,800bp since April, the highest in the sector as investor concerns grow over its liquidity position. The ‘three red-lines’ (Term of the Day, explained below), a key regulatory threshold for property developers set by Beijing has become an important factor that separates the winners and the losers.
In this editorial piece, we detail the widening Z-Spreads across companies in the Chinese property sector, the sector’s underperformance, and the three red-lines calculations of the key players.
Term of the Day
Three Red Lines
The ‘three red lines’ are leverage guidelines set for select property developers in China. They consist of caps on the following ratios:
- Liabilities to assets (ex-advanced proceeds) not more than 70%
- Net Debt to Equity not more than 100%
- Cash to Short-term Debt greater than 1x
These ratios were devised by China’s PBOC and Ministry of Finance. Not adhering to these ratios would result in them being cut-off from new loans. Those who adhere to all three ratios can increase debt by 15% in the subsequent year.

“Even though the underlying growth backdrop is very strong, the market has moved from thinking about reflation to maybe a little bit of stagflation fear.”
