Toyworld Mag: Toys ‘R’ Us Debt Deepens Decline As News Reports Infer Bankruptcy

We sincerely hope that this news isn’t true, as Toys ‘R’ Us are a staple of the collecting scene and their potential loss could send shockwaves across the industry.

Bonds backing Toys R Us renewed their recent dramatic slide on Friday.

As a measure of the sell-off of the bonds, the company’s most pressing maturity—a $208m issue of senior unsecured notes due in 2018—has halved in value over the past two weeks.

The bonds traded at just 46 cents on the dollar on Friday, down from around 65 on Thursday and a drop of 51 points (from 97) two weeks ago, prior to the debt restructuring announcement.
