April 16th, 2021
We would like to thank everybody for their communications with the company, reflecting their support and encouragement of iQSTEL’s continuous business plan growth.
It´s important to remark that FY-2020 was an amazing year for iQSTEL, setting the foundation for future growth.
Over the course of FY-2020, and Q1 FY-2021, we established 4 business divisions:
This wide portfolio of products makes us a “one stop shop” for Telecom & Technology Services. Even though our services are spread across 7 subsidiaries (Etelix, SwissLink, QGlobal, SMSDirectos, IoT Labs, Global Money One, and itsBchain), we are organized to offer our customers one unified, singular and valuable customer experience.
We have initiated a move to consolidate our Telecom Division under one brand name, IQSTelecom, to optimize our marketing and at the same time, make our back-office operations more efficient thus increasing our EBITA.
Toward the end of FY-2020, we implemented a plan to eliminate debt. As of Q1 FY-2021, we are a Debt Free Company, with no convertible notes, warrants or settlements. This major milestone frees us to invest all available funds from our operations and Reg A offering into further strengthening our balance sheet and growing the company. Therefore, we expect to see improvement in our consolidated Statement of Operations and Balance Sheet throughout FY-2021.
All these activities summarized herein, to include the implementation of a wider portfolio of products, and the elimination of debt, put us well on track to achieve our up-listing objective. Look for additional news coming soon announcing the next and final steps leading to our up-listing.
As we improve operational efficiencies in FY-2021, management intends, at the same time, to accelerate our ongoing M&A campaign to expand functional and geographic reach and add additional revenue that may contribute to our potentially exceeding the FY-2021 $60.5 Million revenue forecast.FY-2020, 10-K Summary:
We genuinely appreciate and respect our shareholders and supporters. Please be sure to join our Ambassador Program for direct contact with our other “Long-Standing” shareholders and supporters. As well, feel free to email or call us for direct communications with our top-notch Investor Relations Team, all found on our website.
