Singapore-based oil trading firms Winson Group and ZenRock Commodities both made separate statements to abate any doubts over their financial stability due to the recent Hin Leong Trading (HLT) debacle, reports Bloomberg.
Winson Group allegedly stated the company did not have any ongoing accounts with HLT in an emailed statement to the news agency.
The same email also supposedly states that the company has been able to meet all obligations and deadlines to banks and creditors.

It added that while its business has been adversely affected by slowing Chinese demand, closed economies due to the coronavirus lockdown, it has the “ability and experience to work through them profitability”.
