Chinese real estate company Evergrande raised a total of US$3.8 billion across 3 tranches on Tuesday. This represents the largest ever deal by a Chinese real estate company even as the regulators seek to clamp down on financial risks.
The bonds have, however, traded poorly in the aftermarket on account of the unexpectedly large deal size. Amongst them, the dollar-denominated 2025 bond started at a low of $94.58 on Friday early morning. They are currently up by 2 points for the day and are trading at $96.99 on early Friday trades.
