The world is still watching the financial collapse of Chinese property giant Evergrande, which has told the private sector to “prepare for possible storms,” according to Chinese authorities. Although the People’s Bank of China has provided $18.6 billion in liquidity to cushion the blow, Beijing may be less willing to bail out the company, the report showed.
Chinese authorities warn of ‘potential storm’, PBOC injects $18.6bn into Chinese market
Financial markets could still face an unruly storm if Evergrande defaults and triggers a credit contagion. Senior Chinese officials have told local authorities to prepare for the collapse of real estate developer Evergrande, The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on Thursday.
Evergrande has accumulated a lot of debt, and the giant company has been teetering since the Sept. 20 fallout. Evergrande was able to pay off its debt due on Wednesday, but it was unclear whether Evergrande could meet its offshore bond debt on Thursday.
One of the reasons Evergrande has been able to do this since its Sept. 20 slide is because the central bank has pumped $18.6 billion into the economy to boost liquidity. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) used reverse repurchase agreements in the process.
Sentiment improved after the injection, but the Wall Street Journal report noted that the central bank may not continue to ease the situation. Eugene Leow, senior rates strategist at DBS Bank in Singapore, explained that the capital injection was to boost sentiment. Liao emphasized:
The central bank’s net capital injection may be an attempt to appease the market’s concerns about Evergrande. While the purpose may be to instill discipline, it also needs to prevent contagion to the real economy or other sectors.
