Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Anshan Iron & Steel Group Co. has paid the principal on its 5 billion yuan ($794 million) bond due today, the nation’s official bond-clearing house said.
Chinabond had said on its website that it was yet to receive the payment from Anshan Iron & Steel as of this morning, Sina.com reported, citing a notice posted to the clearing house’s website. That notice couldn’t be found on Chinabond’s website after Anshan Iron & Steel’s announcement was posted.
Cao Jincheng, a public relations official for Angang Group, declined to comment.
