(Reuters) – China Evergrande Group said on Sunday its interests in a plot of undeveloped land for residential development in Hong Kong’s Yuen Long district have been sold by its receivers for $636.94 million.
The proceeds will be used to repay some of the company’s financial obligations in relation to the project and a loss of about $770 million is expected to be recorded in respect of the project, the Chinese property developer said in a filing to the Hong Kong bourse.
Saddled with more than $300 billion in total liabilities, the defaulted Chinese property developer has already seen many of its assets, both in mainland China and Hong Kong, seized by creditors.
