KWG said that if the above consent solicitation and exchange offers do not get successfully accomplished, they “may not be able to fully repay” the notes and would have to consider an “alternative debt restructuring exercise”.

KWG’s dollar bonds due 2022 are currently trading at 31-32 cents on the dollar.
