Over the weekend, Country Garden won approval from its creditors to extend payments for a 3.9 billion yuan ($540 million) onshore private bond, according to sources and a document seen by Reuters.

Bloomberg reported the company also wired a coupon payment on a 2.85 million Malaysian ringgit ($613,000) denominated bond.

Country Garden is still scheduled to pay $22 million in coupon payments on two U.S. dollar bonds it missed in early August. The grace period ends Wednesday.

On Friday, China also took action to revive its property sector. The People’s Bank of China eased some borrowing rules and cut the reserve requirement ratio for foreign exchange deposits from the current 6% to 4% starting Sept. 15.

Some of China’s largest banks also cut interest rates on yuan deposits, including the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, China Construction Bank Corp and Agricultural Bank of China.
