MAp: “2009 was an exceptionally challenging year and Sydney Airport took early and pre-emptive action on costs at the end of 2008 and early in 2009. In addition, Sydney Airport’s shareholders took decisive action to strengthen its balance sheet and as a result the airport has no refinancing requirements until late 2011 and is in a strong financial position,” Kerrie Mather, CEO.
