The company issued debt to raise capital for its ventures, including the Sabine Oil & Gas LLC 9.75% 2/15/2017 bonds.

High-yield bonds—also called non-investment-grade bonds, speculative-grade bonds, or junk bonds—are bonds that are rated below investment grade, typically ‘BB’ or lower by Standard & Poor’s and ‘Ba’ or lower by Moody’s. They pay high yields to bondholders because the borrowers credit ratings are less than pristine, making it difficult for them to acquire capital at an inexpensive cost. Junk bonds carry an above average risk that the issuer will default on the bond. The increased risk makes them arguably unsuitable for many investors.
This risk has come in to focus recently as oil prices have plummeted, causing the risk of default of the Sabine Oil & Gas LLC 9.75% 2/15/2017 bonds to rise.
