Investing.com – Fantasia Holdings Group Co. Ltd. (HK:1777) failed to pay a $205.7 million bond that was due Monday, becoming the latest Chinese developer to fall into a debt crisis.

Separately, property management company Country Garden Services Holdings Co. said that Fantasia Holding’s Colour Life Services Group unit failed to repay a CNY700 million ($108.55 million) loan that was also due on Monday and a default is likely, according to a Fantasia Holdings statement.

The management and board “will assess the potential impact on the financial condition and cash position of the Group” stemming from the skipped bond payment, the Shenzhen-based company added.

China’s property sector is coming under increasing pressure, with lower-rated developers facing the highest bond yields in a decade. China Evergrande Group (HK:3333), also suffering from debt woes, is heading towards a restructuring that could be one of the biggest seen in China so far and fears of a wider market contagion continue to persist. Trading in China Evergrande and Evergrande Property Services Group shares was suspended on Monday pending an announcement on a “major transaction.”

Prices on Fantasia Holdings’ bonds also tumbled on Monday as speculation on whether it would make good on its debt mounted. Its 6.95% of dollar-denominated notes, due in December 2021, tumbled nearly 30 cents on the dollar to 38 cents, according to data from bond-price reporting system Trace.

Fitch Ratings cut Fantasia’s credit grade several notches to CCC- on Monday, while Moody’s Investors Service also cut the company’s rating by one notch to B3. S&P Global (NYSE:SPGI) Ratings lowered its long-term rating for Fantasia Holdings to CCC from B on Sep. 29, due to “elevated risk” that it may not be able to implement a concrete repayment plan over the next several weeks for upcoming maturities.

For years they use money from investors to built ghost cities. Now if they go bk, they have gains. Investors get nothing. Bonds holders may get a penny for every dollar.
