Meanwhile, in a filing with the BSX, Polaris Holding Company Ltd said its directors had unanimously resolved to defer payment of a eight cents per share dividend to shareholders of record as at June 25.
The company noted “falling cargo projections for fiscal 2021 and pending negotiations with its unionised staff for change within its bedrock operating Company (Stevedoring Services Limited)”, and said the board took the view that an immediate deferral of the dividend set the right tone for “the unknown but anticipated impact of Covid-19 during this fiscal year”.
