It comes after Chinese regulators warned Wanda and other high-profile companies to “curb offshore expansion and reduce its debt levels”, the Hong Kong news website reports.

In August, Wanda released a statement denying rumors they were planning to sell the Jewel.

“It has come to the attention of Wanda Hotel Development Company Limited that there are media reports regarding certain proposed disposals of the Company’s projects in Sydney and the Gold Coast, Australia,” the statement read.

“Having made such enquiry internally as is reasonable in the circumstances, the Company wishes to clarify that, as of the date of this announcement, the Company does not have any plan to make the said disposals referred to in the Media Reports, and thus such information is incorrect. Both projects are progressing as planned.”
