NEW YORK, April 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ —
White & Case is forming a group of creditors holding offshore debt affected by the restructuring proposal announced by China Evergrande Group on 22 March 2023. Relevant noteholders and lenders are invited to a call at 9:00 a.m. (London time) / 10:00 a.m. (Paris time) / 4:00 p.m. (Hong Kong time) on 14 April 2023 to discuss their options.
China Evergrande Group (“CEG”) announced a detailed financial restructuring proposal (the “Proposal”) on 22 March 2023 following consultation and negotiation with a limited subset of its creditors. On 3 April 2023, CEG further announced that it had entered into restructuring support agreements (“RSAs”) regarding its proposal with the members of an ad hoc group of certain series of notes issued by CEG and its subsidiaries.

Affected creditors have been given until 27 April 2023 to sign up to the RSAs if they wish to receive a 0.25% consent fee in the form of new payment-in-kind notes to be issued pursuant to the restructuring proposal (if implemented).
