The developer said the discussions involve “certain significant beneficial holders of the notes” and no formal proposal has been finalized yet. It added that it wants to “reassure creditors that it intends to proactively manage its exposure under the notes”. Guotai Junan International and Alvarez & Marsal would be its joint financial advisers. Golden Wheel was downgraded by Moody’s in mid-October to Caa1 from B3.
Golden Wheel’s dollar bonds were stable, trading between 35-40 cents on the dollar.
