MTL noted, “In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has taken and continues to take significant measures to preserve cash and control costs including the following: deferral of planned non-essential capital expenditure, negotiated extended credit terms with suppliers, acted diligently on collection of its receivables, implementation of measures to reduce staff costs, negotiated suspension of rental charges. The company however believes that the measures implemented should facilitate orderly conducting of operations for the foreseeable future, and therefore, that the going concern basis of preparation of the financial statements, is appropriate. However, the circumstances surrounding the pandemic represents a material uncertainty that may cast a doubt on the company’s ability to continue as a going concern and therefore whether the company will realize its assets and settle its liabilities in the ordinary course of business at the amounts recorded in the financial statements.”
