International companies trading in New York traded sharply lower Wednesday, in line with the broader market, weighed down by a disappointing Spanish bond auction.

The Bank of New York index of ADRs tumbled 2.2% to 127.44 as investors grew more concerned about Spain's rising debt burden. An auction of Spanish government debt fell short of expectations, selling just EUR2.589 billion ($3.43 billion) worth of bonds at the bottom of its planned range, and at yields that were well above previous auctions.

The European index dropped 2.2% to 116.64.

The world's largest waste and water utility, Veolia Environnement SA (VE, VIE.FR), said Wednesday it has opened negotiations with state-owned financial institution Caisse de Depots et Consignations to take over Marseille-based ferry operator SNCM, as part of a broader plan to cut debt through asset sales. Veolia plans to buy CDC's indirectly held 33% stake in SNCM. Veolia slipped 5.1% to $14.98.

The Asian index shed 1.9% to 126.86.

The South Korean government is open to merging Woori Finance Holdings (WF, 053000.SE) with another financial company, a senior official at the financial regulator said, thus creating a megabank. It is also looking at selling its US$5.5 billion stake in the country's biggest financial holding firm, the senior official at the Financial Services Commission in charge of Woori's privatization told Dow Jones Newswires. Woori's stock fell 2% to $35.25.

The Latin American index declined 2.2% to 361.31.

Argentina's Neuquen province has revoked oil and gas concessions held by three companies, including Petrobras Argentina SA (PZE, PESA.BA), in a broader dispute over investment in exploration and production. Shares of Petrobras Argentina tumbled 7.5% to $11.56.

The emerging markets index fell 1.9% to 300.17 as the price of gold ended at 12-week lows.

South African gold miners AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. (AU, ANG.JO) dropped 4.7% to $34.35 and Gold Fields Ltd. (GFI, GFI.JO) tumbled 6% to $12.80.
