China's Beleaguered HNA Group Faces a Debt Wall in Second Half

Struggling Chinese conglomerate HNA Group Co. faces rising bond maturities later this year even if it’s able to navigate current difficulties in repaying debt to banks.

HNA is under mounting pressure as several banks are said to have frozen some unused credit lines to its units after missed payments. That follows a $40-billion-plus buying spree that saw the conglomerate emerge from obscurity to take large stakes in companies including Deutsche Bank AG and Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. in recent years.
