Country Garden delays yuan bondholder voting deadline again- Bloomberg News

(Reuters) – Chinese property developer Country Garden is again delaying a deadline for the holders of a yuan bond to vote on several proposals regarding the note repayment, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday.

The vote on the 3.9 billion yuan ($537.3 million) onshore private bond is a key hurdle Country Garden will have to overcome as it strives to avoid default amid a spiralling financing crisis and opposition from some creditors.

Country Garden is pushing the deadline back by one day to 10 p.m. Beijing-time Friday, the report said, citing filings to the Shanghai Stock Exchange’s private disclosure platform.
