Chinese online insurance technology firm Waterdrop Inc is receiving pushback from domestic regulators on its planned U.S. initial public offering as its business model is seen as risky, four people familiar with the situation told Reuters. Waterdrop, which is backed by internet giant Tencent Holdings, has been working with financial advisers since mid last year on going public and had already made a confidential filing for the float, said three of the people. The China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission (CBIRC), however, has questioned the company's business risks, which has slowed down the IPO process, they said.
(Bloomberg) -- Concern over one of China’s largest bad-debt managers turned into panic on Tuesday as investors considered the worst-case scenarios for the company’s outlook.China Huarong Asset Management Co.’s $300 million 3.375% bond yield due May 2022 rose 9 percentage points to 23%, while the rate on a 5% dollar bond maturing in 2025 increased 3 percentage points to 10.8%. The selloff spread to other high-yield Chinese dollar bonds, with some property bonds falling by a record.Bonds linked to the company have plunged this month after China Huarong failed to publish its 2020 preliminary results by the March 31 deadline, with Caixin attributing the delay to plans for a significant financial restructuring. The stock has been suspended in Hong Kong since April 1. The company has until the end of the month to release its final earnings report.In a commentary dated Monday, Ling Huawei, managing editor of Caixin Media and Caixin Weekly, openly discussed the possibility of a Huarong bankruptcyChina Huarong has been under a shadow since its then chairman Lai Xiaomin came under investigation in 2018. Lai was put to death earlier this year for bribery after a brief trial.“Huarong is a $22 billion curve and as a distressed situation it dwarfs anything that we have seen in the Asia credit market before,” said Owen Gallimore, head of trading strategy at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group. “This is a fatal event for a few trading desks and small funds.”China Huarong and its subsidiaries have some $42 billion worth of offshore and local bonds outstanding and 41% of that will come due by the end of next year, according to Bloomberg-compiled data. Dollar bonds make up about $22 billion of its outstanding notes.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
New Gophers men's basketball coach Ben Johnson planned to address his players Monday after a police officer fatally shot Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center on Sunday.

The Brooklyn Center police on Monday said the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright came by way of a rare mistake: An officer drew a service pistol when she thought she was holding a Taser. A gun-Taser mix-up by a police officer has been blamed for a handful of deaths in the U.S. — at least three others nationwide — since Tasers with a pistol-grip were first introduced more than two decades ago. ...

He said he'd rather be hurt than anybody else," Mayor Indya Kincannon told CBS News.Knoxville police said they responded to Austin-East after getting reports of a gunman at the school and found the suspect in a bathroom.
