HONG KONG -- Embattled property developer China Evergrande Group on Friday said it may take on more advisers to help steer it through a debt restructuring that a group of offshore-bond holders has slammed as "opaque" and exclusionary.

The debt-saddled company said its risk-management committee was considering adding investment banks China International Capital Corp. (CICC) and BOCI Asia as financial advisers as well as Beijing-based Zhong Lun Law Firm to handle legal advice.
