Evergrande, one of China's biggest real-estate developers, is $300 billion in debt.
That's the biggest debt load of any company in the world right now.
If Evergrande defaults, analysts fear its collapse will send shockwaves through the Chinese economy.
Evergrande is the second-largest property developer in China by sales.
It's also on the brink of defaulting on its loans.
The developer owes money to hundreds of banks and financial firms, and if it fails to pay its loans, those companies will also feel the crunch.
To help you understand the scale of China's real-estate giant, we've pulled together some statistics and comparisons that put it into perspective.
1. Evergrande owns more than 1,300 real estate projects in China.
Evergrande has constructed more than 1,300 projects across the country, its website states. Many of these are sprawling housing complexes like the one pictured above.
2. Evergrande is $300 billion in debt, the most out of any company in the world.
Evergrande is estimated to have $300 billion in liabilities.
3. Around 12 million homeowners live in properties built by Evergrande.
Evergrande has projects in 280 cities across China and has built property for over 12 million homeowners, its website states.
That means more people live in Evergrande properties than in any of the following countries: Greece (population 10.4 million); Portugal (10.1 million); Cuba (11.3 million); or Sweden (10.1 million).
4. Evergrande manages enough land to cover the entire area of Manhattan.
In comparison, Manhattan has a total land area of 23 square miles, or 6.4 billion square feet.
5. Evergrande is indirectly responsible for 3.8 million jobs, which is enough to employ all of Los Angeles.
While Evergrande employs about 200,000 people, it is indirectly responsible for creating 3.8 million jobs a year, the company says.
That's nearly enough jobs to employ every single person who lives in the city of Los Angeles (population 3.98 million as of 2019), or the entire population of the state of Connecticut (population 3.5 million).
6. Evergrande's debt load is equivalent to 2% of China's GDP.
Equivalent to 2% of China's $14.7 trillion gross domestic product, Evergrande's debt is bigger than the GDP of any of the following countries: Finland ($271.2 billion); New Zealand ($212.5 billion); Qatar ($146.4 billion); or Hungary ($155 billion).
