LIMA, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Shares in Maple Energy Plc dropped 33.33 percent on the Lima bourse on Friday after its Peruvian units defaulted on payments to creditors.

Maple Energy shares traded in Lima at $0.012 on Friday at 12:30(17:30 GMT).

The company said in a statement on Thursday that its ethanol and biofuels businesses had received a notice of event of default from its creditors.
