China Huarong Asset Management Co.’s dollar bonds sank Tuesday after Reorg Research reported regulators are considering options for the company that include restructuring the debt of its offshore unit.

A debt restructuring is one of several options under discussion and a decision is far from finalized, according to the report, which cited people familiar with the matter. Reorg is a New York-based provider of credit data and analytics. Almost all of China Huarong’s $22 billion in dollar bonds are issued or guaranteed by China Huarong International Holdings Ltd., the offshore unit.
