Despite positive current trading, there is no change to the previous guidance for FY21 with SkyCity expecting Group normalised EBITDA to be above FY20 but still well below pre-COVID-19 and FY19 levels. The operating environment remains unpredictable due to COVID-19 (eg. 11-day property closure at SkyCity Auckland during February and March 2021) and accordingly SkyCity is unable to provide formal earnings guidance at this time.
Based on expected performance and assuming no prolonged property closures before the end of FY21, SkyCity expects to meet its financial covenants for the 30 June 2021 testing period and pay a final dividend consistent with the revised dividend policy announced at the time of its 1H21 results.
