In a fresh update on China Evergrande story, the indebted property development giant is likely to be restructured into three separate entities, in a fresh deal that could be announced within days, Asia Markets reports on Wednesday, citing sources close to the Chinese government.
The sources added that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is set to take control of Evergrande in an imminent deal.
“The deal is being designed to protect Chinese nationals who have bought apartments from Evergrande, like the ones you see protesting on the streets and also those who have invested in Evergrande’s wealth management products.”
“But the big thing is stemming any widespread economic flow-on effects that insolvency would cause on the China economy.”
The risk sentiment remains elevated on the renewed optimism surrounding China Evergrande. Although the above report has little to no impact on the risk trades, so far.
