Discussing the company’s actions in light of the public-health crisis, it’s quarterly statement reported:

At present, business operations continue to function effectively and service levels are being maintained, with staff working either from the business premises or remotely from home. Contingency planning has been undertaken and ABT will continue to review and adjust our business continuity measures as the situation evolves.

We are responsive to the latest advice from medical and government authorities with ABT being well-placed from an operational perspective to perform some activities remotely when required to do so.

At present, our supply chain continues to function as per our business requirements. Current travel restrictions are not adversely impacting supply and delivery of products which has ensured the continuity of business operations without compromising the supply of products to our customers, both here in Australia and internationally, during this period of disruption.

ABT maintains a disciplined approach to costs and this will continue to be the focus of the business in these uncertain economic times.

We appreciate that this is a very challenging time for everyone. The current extreme levels of volatility in share markets are unsettling and there may be significant ongoing economic impacts across many industries. However, the health of the broader community is the primary concern at this time.
