Performance Food Group Company Provides Update on Potential Impact of COVID-19
Performance Food Group Company : Due to the evolving and unprecedented impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the global economy, PFG is providing an update on its business and financial position.
"We are closely monitoring the current market and positioning our business for the long term as all of us in the country are responding to the threat of COVID-19," said George Holm, PFG Chairman, President & CEO. "Our first priority is ensuring the health and welfare of our associates and helping our customers through this period of disruption. We continue to assess additional customer opportunities to leverage our scale and assets. Furthermore, while the full impact of COVID-19 is currently unknown, we are confident that we have ample liquidity under our debt facilities even if conditions continue to worsen. Covenants under our bonds do not require us to maintain any liquidity or other financial metrics. We believe that our strong operating model will allow us to weather this disruption, and we will continue to take actions to mitigate the adverse effects to, and support, our partners and clients in the restaurant industry during these unfortunate times."
"PFG's full year 2020 outlook was based on information available at such time, and through the beginning of March, we were on track to meet our previously disclosed and affirmed expectations. However, as the macroeconomic environment has deteriorated, we have decided to withdraw our full year 2020 outlook. We plan to provide additional information on our third quarter earnings call based on the information available at that time on May 6, 2020."
