In a statement, Wanda called reports that some Chinese banks were ordered to sell its bonds "malicious speculation."
China Construction Bank and other banks had never issued such a notice and the online speculation is rumor, according to the statement.
Shares in Wanda Film Holding Co fell 9.87 percent before they were suspended on the Shenzhen Bourse. Wanda Properties International Co.'s 2024 notes plunged 9 percent from $112 to 101.9 percent during morning trading.
