We have quickly restructured our New Zealand workforce and reduced by around 25 percent to ensure that SkyCity is positioned in the short to medium term. We have carried out capital procurement and debt rescheduling to ensure that SkyCity has sufficient liquidity and financing capacity. The considerable surgical efforts focused on the closure and reopening of our facilities with strict health and security measures.

Skycity was able to react quickly but carefully to these events and is well positioned to cope with the foreseeable future. The wage grants in New Zealand and Australian job keeper system were helpful and have partially reduced the effects of the interim closure of the casinos and the continuing low visitor rate of international customers.
