Transurban Group (ASX: TCL) announces COVID-19 update to the market – claims to have sufficient liquidity to meet capital requirements and refinancing obligations, set to pay dividend for 2H 2020 in line with free cash. (Credit: Live Trading News).
TCL has also mentioned it has sufficient liquidity to meet its capital requirements and debt refinancing obligations. Furthermore, the dividend for second half 2020 will be paid in line with free cash, excluding capital releases.
In terms of projects, the West Gate Tunnel project schedule remains under review as a subcontractor pulled out. It is only natural that businesses like TCL take a hit when people are staying home globally and socially distancing. However, it is important to note that there will be no lag between the lifting of lockdowns and revenue for TCL, meaning, the moment people are allowed to go outside, traffic numbers will jump. It is for this reason TCL appears attractive to some investors at current prices (down 26% since highs of 20 February).
