Another Chinese Company Says It Will Miss Full Bond Payment

Updated on

A bottle maker in China said it won’t be able to fully repay a bond due May 28, raising concern it will become the third company to default in the onshore note market this year as the economy slows.

Zhuhai Zhongfu Enterprise Co., which supplies bottles for Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. in China, can only repay 148 million yuan ($23.9 million) of the 590 million yuan principal, according to a statement to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange Monday. It plans to pay all the 31.152 million yuan of interest. The manufacturer, which isn’t state-owned, sold the 5.28 percent securities in 2012.
