Australia.- The largest gambling company in Australia, Tabcorp, has received a debt waiver from bank lenders as it fights the financial impact of Covid-19.
This was reached under its syndicated facility agreement (SFA) for a waiver of leverage and interest covenants on an estimated AU$2.2billion of debt until 2021.
The waiver covers the next two testing dates for the debt which occur on June 30 and December 31.
Tabcorp CEO, David Attenborough, said: “The waivers complement recent actions we have taken to preserve our liquidity and mitigate the financial and earnings impacts of Covid-19.
“Tabcorp continues to work proactively and collaboratively with all our stakeholders to emerge from the Covid-19 period as strongly as possible.”
In April, the company laid off 700 employees as part of cost management measures resulting from the pandemic.
