The group said it will provide an update on the September quarter’s performance in early November.

Last month, Scentre reported a $3.66 billion loss in the first half of 2021. The company saw its revenue drop to $1.09 billion in June, which is a 16 per cent decrease compared to the same time last year.

While the retail realtor managed to bring in $1 billion in revenue, its profit margins were heavily impacted by the COVID-19’s impact on tenants.

In 2019, the company recorded $740 million in profit, but 12 months later it posted a $3.66 billion loss.

It comes as many retailers were forced to shut their doors as the pandemic kept shopper indoors and online.

At market close, Scentre Group is up 4.13 per cent, trading for $2.27 per share.
