A?

So we can rewrite the sentence like:

The solvency is at stake as a significant number of debts should be repudiated.

?

no.

the solvency of some of the world's largest multinational banks is at stake should the debts be repudiated.

the idiom is "should X occur/be, Y will occur/be." it is a conditional if then statement. I am a native speaker so it is very easy for me to spot this idiom.
