China Evergrande (OTCMKTS:EGRNQ) is catching the eyes of investors on Monday as the Chinese real estate developer has been given a liquidation order.

China Evergrande is a major real estate developer in China and has been dragging down that sector for over a year now. Those problems have finally come to a head with the company having to liquidate its business, as the company owes $333 billion.

Let’s get into everything traders need to know about the China Evergrande liquidation.

China Evergrande Liquidation Details

  • The liquidation order for China Evergrande comes from a Hong Kong court.
  • That follows 19 months of negotiations to restructure the failing real estate company.
  • Investors will also note that the company filed for bankruptcy in New York in 2023.
  • Alvarez and Marsal has been appointed as the liquidator of the company.
  • This gives it the right to take and sell its assets to pay back the debts owed by China Evergrande.
  • However, the order doesn’t affect the subsidiaries of China Evergrande, which are their own legal entities.
  • That includes Hengda Real Estate Group, which manages the majority of its assets in mainland China.
  • China Evergrande first defaulted on its debt back in 2021, which was a major blow to China’s economy.
  • It may also be difficult for creditors to get their money back out of the company, as its assets total $240 billion.
  • China Evergrande may appeal the liquidation order but the process will “proceed pending the outcome of the appeal.”
