Puerto Rico restructuring talk hurting demand for bond deal: sources

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 03/23/2015 - 23:31
Investors are losing interest in a proposed $2.9 billion bond deal that would provide a financial lifeline for Puerto Rico after three prominent legislators called for debt restructuring, according to three investor sources. Puerto Rico is struggling with more than $70 billion in total debt and must overcome opposition from local lawmakers as well as demands from investors for extra security as it attempts to sell more debt. Meetings between government officials and investors are likely this week as expectations grow that Puerto Rico could undertake a wider debt restructuring than initially thought, the source close to the deal said. Three Popular Democratic Party lawmakers announced last week would file legislation to amend the constitution to enable Puerto Rico's general obligation debt to be restructured.

(Reuters) - One hiker was killed and another injured when a seaside cliff collapsed at a park in California and sent giant boulders and earth plunging onto the beach below, officials have said. A photograph taken from a sheriff's office helicopter showed the devastation following Saturday's collapse of part of the Arch Rock overlook at the Point Reyes National Seashore, about 40 miles northwest of San Francisco.
