Modern Land (China) missed the dollar bond coupon and maturity payment on its $250mn 12.85% bonds due October 25. The developer is working with its legal counsel Sidley Austin and expects to engage independent financial advisors soon to assess its capital structure and come up with a solution to its liquidity problems.

Evergrande however did manage to make payments on two of its dollar bonds before the grace period ended.
