A consortium of banks is reportedly in talks with the CBRC about a plan to support Yingli. Last week the company announced that talks with bondholders over a postponement of existing repayment schedules had failed to reach an agreement. The company owes more than US$200 million on 12 May unless it can negotiate an alternative arrangement with its creditors.

Yingli Green had US$1.55 billion in short-term borrowings, including current portion of medium notes and long-term debt and total current liabilities of US$2.96 billion at the end of the third quarter of 2015, the last time the company filed a quarterly report.
