Hong Kong Accounting & Financial Reporting Council (AFRC) on 19th April 2024 – It has come to the attention of the Accounting and Financial Reporting Council (AFRC) that a whistle-blower report has been circulating and reported in the media. The report expressed significant concerns regarding potential alleged deficiencies in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ systems of quality management and the quality of the audits of China Evergrande Group. The major allegations include the following claims:

  • Failure to establish and maintain an effective system of quality control to ensure audit quality and compliance with professional standards and applicable legal and regulatory requirements; 
  • Failure to adhere to professional standards in respect of the acceptance and continuance of its client relationship with China Evergrande Group for the provision of audits and other professional services; 
  • Failure to assign appropriate personnel to key positions responsible for the firm’s system of quality management which might have compromised the monitoring functions of the firm; and 
  • Failure to perform adequate audit procedures for the audits of China Evergrande Group. 

Given the gravity of these allegations and the necessity to safeguard the interests of the investing public, the broader public interest in the auditing of listed entities, and to maintain public confidence in the integrity of the accounting profession, the AFRC is obliged to initiate an investigation. The AFRC will not hesitate to take stringent enforcement actions against any firms and individuals if they are found to have committed any misconduct or violated the Accounting and Financial Reporting Council Ordinance.

Chapter 15 is a new chapter added to the Bankruptcy Code by the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. It is the U.S. domestic adoption of the Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency promulgated by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (“UNCITRAL”) in 1997, and it replaces section 304 of the Bankruptcy Code. Because of the UNCITRAL source for chapter 15, the U.S. interpretation must be coordinated with the interpretation given by other countries that have adopted it as internal law to promote a uniform and coordinated legal regime for cross-border insolvency cases.

The purpose of Chapter 15, and the Model Law on which it is based, is to provide effective mechanisms for dealing with insolvency cases involving debtors, assets, claimants, and other parties of interest involving more than one country. This general purpose is realized through five objectives specified in the statute: (1) to promote cooperation between the United States courts and parties of interest and the courts and other competent authorities of foreign countries involved in cross-border insolvency cases; (2) to establish greater legal certainty for trade and investment; (3) to provide for the fair and efficient administration of cross-border insolvencies that protects the interests of all creditors and other interested entities, including the debtor; (4) to afford protection and maximization of the value of the debtor’s assets; and (5) to facilitate the rescue of financially troubled businesses, thereby protecting investment and preserving employment. 11 U.S.C. § 1501.

Generally, a chapter 15 case is ancillary to a primary proceeding brought in another country, typically the debtor’s home country. As an alternative, the debtor or a creditor may commence a full chapter 7 or chapter 11 case in the United States if the assets in the United States are sufficiently complex to merit a full-blown domestic bankruptcy case. 11 U.S.C. § 1520(c). In addition, under chapter 15 a U.S. court may authorize a trustee or other entity (including an examiner) to act in a foreign country on behalf of a U.S. bankruptcy estate. 11 U.S.C. § 1505.

In March 2022, Banks had seized $2.1 billion of bank guarantees & deposits at Evergrande Property Services Group, a key subsidiary of China Evergrande.  China Evergrande Group have also announced that it is unable to meet a deadline to release its annual results for financial year 2021.   China Evergrande is one of the largest property conglomerate in China, which had been preventing a default of interest payment of its $300 billion debt, but has officially defaulted on its debt on missed interest payments and with top credit rating agency Fitch Ratings downgrading Evergrande’s rating in December 2021.  China Evergrande is founded in 1996 by Hui Ka Yan (Xu Jiayin).  In 2009, China Evergrande went public in Hong Kong.  At one point, Hui Ka Yan had a personal fortune of more than $30 billion.  In 2021, his personal fortune is estimated at around $7 billion to $11 billion.

 

China Evergrande

China Evergrande, one of the largest property conglomerate in China which had been preventing a default of interest payment of its $300 billion debt, has officially defaulted on its debt on missed interest payments and with top credit rating agency Fitch Ratings downgrading Evergrande’s rating in December 2021.  An official default of China Evergrande means the company may not be able to restructure debt at a lower cost, and may trigger a widespread default and short-term pressure of property prices due to asset sale.  China Evergrande is founded in 1996 by Hui Ka Yan (Xu Jiayin).  In 2009, China Evergrande went public in Hong Kong.  At one point, Hui Ka Yan had a personal fortune of more than $30 billion.  In 2021, his personal fortune is estimated at around $7 billion to $11 billion.

China Evergrande is one of the largest property conglomerate in China with more than 1,300 real estate projects & 200,000 employees and business interests in electric cars, healthcare, consumer products etc, and has more than $300 billion of outstanding debts.  China Evergrande is suffering from severe cashflow and little working capital, due to significant decline in property sales and obligations on interest payments. 

Should China Evergrande defaults, the banking industry may start to face a loan write-down or lengthy recovery on their loans to China Evergrande, suppliers will receive an uncertain recovery, and homebuyers and investors will face uncertainties on their property purchase and investments.
