Notice to NZX & ASX - Update: Fire at NZICC
24 October 2019
Fire at New Zealand International Convention Centre
SkyCity Entertainment Group Limited (SKC.NZX/SKC.AX) (“SkyCity”) confirms that the fire at the New Zealand International Convention Centre (“NZICC”) in Auckland is now under control.
Fire and emergency services teams will remain on site until such time as the fire is successfully extinguished and the site can be handed back to Fletcher Construction Company Limited, the main contractor for the NZICC and Horizon Hotel (which is also under construction and located adjacent to the NZICC).
SkyCity will reopen some parts of the SkyCity Auckland precinct from later today and resume normal business operations in a phased approach.
Once the extent of the damage to the NZICC and Horizon Hotel is known, SkyCity will, in consultation with Fletcher Construction Company Limited, be able to determine the impact on the project delivery timeline. Both SkyCity and Fletcher Construction Company Limited remain committed to completing the NZICC to the standard agreed with the New Zealand Government.
SkyCity expects to provide market updates as information becomes available and the SkyCity Investor Day remains scheduled to be held on 7 November 2019 in Adelaide.
SkyCity thanks the fire and emergency services teams for their continued efforts in what has been very challenging circumstances and the many individuals, businesses and organisations who have reached out to SkyCity to show their support.
