The global corporate default tally has increased to 118 in 2016 after U.S.-based metals and mining company American Gilsonite missed an interest payment this week, according to S&P Global Fixed Income Research.

The default tally is now 51% ahead of the pace established last year.

Of course, the energy/natural resources sector is the largest contributor of defaults this year, comprising roughly 57%. The bulk of entities defaulting – 76% – are domiciled in the U.S. – Tim Cross
