Evergrande has not commented publicly on the issue. Once China's top-selling developer, the company is now facing debts of more than $300bn. It has been prioritising its liabilities within China, amid concerns of social unrest. Last week, Evergrande missed an $83.5m interest payment on an overseas bond, but struck an agreement with domestic investors over a $35.9m payment which was also due.
As the deadline for a similar interest payment passed on Wednesday, sources told Reuters that some offshore Evergrande bondholders had not received any money or communication on the matter.
