iQSTEL, Inc.

Leandro Iglesias, CEO of IQSTEL, says the Company’s performance is ‘on track’ to meet both those revenue and profit forecasts. At the time of the acquisitions of Whisl and Smartbiz, he said they would contribute together the Company’s entry into new telecom markets — such as the US — and also generate for IQST both additional revenue and bottom line performance. Together, at the time they were bought, the two companies combined had revenues of $11.6 million and $1.34 million in annual net income, Iglesias said.

IQST now also says that considering the Company’s revenue stream is historically higher in the second half of the year, management is confident the 2023 YTD performance thus far through February 28, 2023 is ‘on track’ to reach the company’s $105 million annual revenue forecast organically for this year. This is before the benefit of sales from any new lines of business and before the benefit of any anticipated contribution from acquisitions.

IQST said it acquired 51% control of Whisl Telecom for $1.25 million in cash plus $550,000 in IQST restricted common shares, with a holding period of six months.  For 51% of Smartbiz, IQST paid $800,000 in cash and $1 million in six months  restricted IQST restricted stock.

Leandro Iglesias, CEO of IQST, now says, “IQSTEL continues into 2023 to realize steady and exceptional growth. After reaching $93 million in revenue in FY 2022, we are already realizing 25% growth YTD through February 28 this year compared to the same period in 2022.”

(OTCQX: IQST) has been aggressive in expanding its Telecom, IoT and Fintech Divisions as it acquires new subsidiaries and consolidates businesses and grows its international exposure and share in the international marketplace.
