Ecuador’s US$ 17,4bn debt restructuring plan faces divided bondholders- Merco Press

Ecuador’s government will likely have to sweeten its offer to creditors in order to reach an agreement to restructure US$ 17.4 billion in bonds, say analysts. The government’s proposal already has the backing of one group of creditors, holding around half of the bonds and including AllianceBernstein, Ashmore and BlackRock.

The government most likely will need to negotiate the terms of the initial offer somewhat to entice the two-thirds aggregate majority of bondholders, or 75% in the case of the 2024 bonds, to accept the proposal, said Tiago Severo, vice president of Latin America economic research at Goldman Sachs.
