[NSE: STLTECH], one of the industry's leading integrators of digital networks, today announced its financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2022. The company reported a promising start to the year with revenues of INR 1,575 cr in Q1 FY23 owing to its widespread strength across all of its business operations. Nearly 62% of the total revenue came from its focus markets of US and Europe. Large orders from these markets enabled STL to build a healthy order book of INR 11,200 + cr, further establishing its leadership in these markets.
Network creators, enterprises and Governments across the globe are investing significantly to power 5G, FTTx and data centre deployments. This is leading to an increase in global demand for optical fibre which is predicted to surpass 541 mn fkm in FY22. By enhancing its optical fibre production capacity and building global service capabilities, STL is preparing for this technological revolution.
Growth focused on Optical and Services Businesses:
As STL plans for growth in the coming years, it is sharpening its focus on key areas:
- Increased focus on Optical Business - STL has fibre capacity of 50 mn fkm and will increase the cable capacity to 42 mn fkm in FY23. It made great strides in the Optical Interconnect business providing fibre cable plus interconnect accessories as a solution to key customers in the US and Europe. It is also starting its world class manufacturing facility for optical fibre cables in the US, which is expected to go live in Q3 FY23.
- Expanded Global Services - STL is working with leading telcos across India and the UK for their 5G and FTTH deployments. In the UK, STL has partnered with leading telcos and alternate network providers and plans to ramp up execution and scale to enable service providers' plans to connect over 60 mn homes by 2030. To meet this massive demand, STL is also building a talent pool by training engineers at STL Academy.
