In case there are difficulties in balancing the source of payment, the enterprise shall proactively plan to work with investors to have an appropriate payment plan of bond principal and interest, ensuring the investors' legitimate rights and interests and avoiding causing social disorder. The nature and severity of violations will be handled according to the law.
