New York, NY, Dec. 21, 2021 — McapMediaWire –– iQSTEL, Inc. (OTCQX: IQST) today continued in the publication of regular updates from the CEO, Leandro Iglesias, in conjunction with the company’s ongoing initiative to up-list on to Nasdaq. The CEO’s latest letter to shareholders is included in its entirety below:
The holidays are upon us, and all of us here at iQSTEL are grateful this holiday season for the shareholder support that we have enjoyed while the company has taken on and succeeded in the execution of an aggressive growth strategy over the past two years in the face of a global pandemic – Thank you, and from all of us, we wish you all the best.
In anticipation of this week wrapping up a little early with celebrations and vacations taking priority, I am publishing my letter this week a little early.
First, I want to confirm the strategic investment deal in excess of $50 million and approved by our independent Board of Directors (BOD) remains on track. I still anticipate the transaction finalizing before the end of the year.
Second, we also remain on track to finalize the previously announced Smartbiz acquisition on schedule in January.
This week I am pleased to share with you the latest on our 2022 forecast. We have already announced a preliminary forecast of $80 million based on the expectations of our telecommunications business alone. We have now completed our forecasting for all business lines and our BOD has approved a $90 million 2022 net income positive revenue forecast for all our operations combined.
We believe iQSTEL’s combined operations are uniquely positioned to serve an increasingly mobile and connected world.
iQSTEL provides connectivity through its B2B iQSTelecom Division which includes our Telecommunications, Internet of Things, and Blockchain products and services.
iQSTEL provides mobility through its B2C EVOSS Division which includes our EV Motorcycles and Fintech Mastercard Ecosystem products and services.
Our management team is confident, and our BOD has endorsed our confidence that the combined operations of iQSTEL’s five business lines (Telecommunications, Internet of Things, Blockchain, EV Motorcycles, Fintech Mastercard Ecosystem) will produce $90 million in revenue in 2022 and be profitable.
Management, with the support of our BOD, is also confident in iQSTEL’s plan to transition onto the Nasdaq national exchange within the first six months of 2022.
As you consider iQSTEL’s bold objectives for 2022, please take into your consideration our historical track record of setting objectives and achieving, if not exceeding them. We set a $60.5 million forecast for 2021, for instance, and we now anticipate delivering $63 million for FY2021.
Thank you again for all your continued support and please enjoy your holidays, but also keep an eye out for additional shareholder letters between now and the end of the year.
