S. Korea names 34 business groups as heavily in debt

SEOUL -- South Korea's Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) classified 34 of the country's business groups as heavily indebted for this year.

The groups, including Hyundai Motor Group and Samsung Group, will be put under scrutiny by their respective creditor banks.

Creditor banks are required to evaluate the financial status of the 34 business groups and seek restructuring if they fail to meet certain requirements, the FSS said in a statement.

The five most indebted business groups are Hyundai Motor, Samsung, SK, LG and Hyundai Heavy Industries, according to the financial regulator.

Other major groups, such as POSCO, Doosan, GS, Hanjin and Lotte, were also included in the top 10 list.

Under the current supervisory guidelines, a business group whose unsecured debts surpass 0.1 percent of total borrowing from the financial sector is classified as a major debtor.

“Those groups will be placed under close monitoring by their main creditor bank,” an FSS official said.

State-owned Woori Bank will take on the monitoring of 13 groups including Samsung, LG and Doosan. State-run Korea Development Bank will be in charge of eight groups such as Hanjin and Kumho Asiana.

we just break even- ...though I am excited about the
launch (though i often found US arms as world class
or sexy stock)-

this other idea doesn't wash-
