Newland International Properties Corp., developer of Trump Ocean Club, should have made the second payment of capital on the issuance of $220 million in bonds on 15 May but did not do so.
"As part of an effort to provide additional information to investors about recent events, on Friday May 18, 2012, Newland will release a package that includes updated information on the collections, closings, sales, inventory available, progress of construction, and other topics of interest to the bondholders", the company said on Tuesday in a news release.
In November 2011, Newland also failed to make an initial capital payment of $31.4 million. The main shareholder and chairman Roger Khafif had reached an agreement with bondholders last month.
