Genting Hong Kong says it is still looking for new sources of funding to help navigate the COVID-19 pandemic after falling to another US$238.3 million loss for the six months to 30 June 2021.

The loss, while narrowed from a 1H20 loss of US$742.6 million, reflects ongoing headwinds for the company’s core cruise ship business – one of the hardest hit industries globally form the pandemic.

Despite finalizing agreements with creditors in June that will see the company granted new loans and extensions to maturities around its US$2.6 billion of debt, Genting Hong Kong said in its H1 results release overnight that it continues to search out further funding opportunities.

“The Company’s financial results remain heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the extent of the losses will depend on many factors including the timing of full return to service of its cruise fleet,” it said.

“The Company continues to seek new sources of funding in view of the uncertainties in the recovery.”
