In early April, Qube managing director Maurice James talked of “challenging times” but the company was well-positioned to work with all its key stakeholders to address the challenging environment.

“Qube is pursuing several initiatives to further increase its liquidity including increasing its bank facilities and progressing its property partnering / monetisation process to ensure that Qube is well placed to continue to fund suitable growth opportunities in the future,” Mr James said.
