IQST - iQSTEL Releases CEO Shareholder Letter with 2022 YTD Execution Update and 2023 Business Foundations Plan
New York, NY, Sept. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iQSTEL, Inc. (OTCQX: IQST) ("IQST" or the "Company"), a leading provider of comprehensive technology solutions and services to several industries such as Telecommunications, Electric vehicles, Liquid Fuel Distribution, Chemical, and Financial, today released a Shareholder Letter with an Update of its 2022 Business Plan, Guidelines for its 2023 Business Plan, M&A campaign, EVOSS update, and Funding strategy. The shareholder updates from CEO Leandro Iglesias are included in their entirety below.
I have some exciting news to share with our shareholders as we enter the last quarter of fiscal year 2022.
Update of the 2022 Business Plan:
In our last Shareholder Letter, we shared our financial results, and I am pleased to confirm that our company continues showing a positive trend based on our financial performance indicators.
As we indicated in our August 11, 2022, management interview, performed by Michel Poarch at Alpha Status Stocks, the three top take-away messages are:
Guidelines for the 2023 Business Plan:
Our management is working on setting next year's business objectives and revenue guidelines. We are expecting all of our subsidiaries to carry over our plan to achieve profitability in Q4 FY-2022. Our main objectives for FY-2023 are an increase in revenues to nine digits, effectively becoming a “9-digits revenue company”, keep increasing the gross margin, and profits growth, quarter over quarter, starting on Q1 FY-2023.
We anticipate increased growth of our flag-ship telecommunications business division, at the same time, we are including additional high profit revenue streams and taking cost-efficiency measures to increase profitability.
Mergers and Acquisition (“M&A”) campaign:
IQSTEL’s sucessful M&A campaign has added strategic acquisitions such as Smartbiz and Whisl. These companies continue adding commercial knowledge, new products, highly qualified management, increased consolidated revenues and positive net income.
We plan to keep pursuing inorganic growth opportunities through acquisitions and are currently evaluating three target companies.
We intend to keep applying our acquisition strategy, paying a mix of cash and restricted IQST common shares, committing our new partners to continue developing a successful business, and aligning them with our long-term vision.
We are in the last stage of negotiating a long-term partnership to manufacture our EVOSS motorcycles. We expect to place a large order of motorcycles to be marketed in five United States markets (California, Texas, Florida, New York, and New Jersey), as well as in international markets, specifically Spain and Portugal. These markets have a combined GDP (Gross Domestic Product) of more than Fifteen Trillion Dollars. We believe it is an achievable business opportunity.
At the same time, we are building a prototype of an affordable four-seat EV car, targeting demand for a second family car. We plan to have the prototype of our EV Mid-Speed Car by the end of the Q4 FY-2022.
We are in open negotiations with a lender to receive a standard non-dilutive credit line of Five Million dollars. This revolving line of credit will be used to develop the EVOSS business plan with complete independency from IQSTEL.
We are very optimistic about the company's future; we expect to achieve significant milestones in Q4 FY-2022. As we have stated before, our company is in a better than ever position, and we are building the foundations for FY-2023 and beyond.
Thank you for your loyalty and support; we keep working daily to increase our business and the company's value.
