“The duration and intensity of this global health emergency and related disruptions is uncertain, including potential broader impacts outside of China if travel and visitation continue to be restricted. Given the dynamic nature of these circumstances, the related impact on our Group’s consolidated results of operations, cash flows and financial condition will be material, but cannot be reasonably estimated at the time of this announcement,” Sands China explained.
