The FTSE Straits Times Index slid as much as 2.4%, after the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) called on banks to cap 2020 total dividends at 60% of what they paid out last year as the city-state faces its deepest recession ever in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has roiled the global economy.
Singapore Airlines Ltd.’s shares fell to their lowest price in more than 21 years after the carrier posted its biggest quarterly loss ever as the coronavirus wiped out travel demand.
Singapore Airlines Ltd warned passenger capacity may remain at less than half of pre-pandemic levels by its March 2021 year-end after slumping to a S$1.12 billion ($817 million) first-quarter net loss due to a sharp decline in demand. Singapore Airlines said it was in talks with aircraft manufacturers to delay deliveries and progress payments to reduce cash outflows at a time when the majority of its fleet of 220 planes remains parked. The airline said it was reviewing the size and shape of its fleet over the longer term, which was likely to lead to a material impairment in the value of older aircraft, particularly the Airbus A380, which would account for S$1 billion.
