Sistema Shyam narrows loss to Rs 495 cr
The company had posted a net loss of Rs 1,009.7 crore in the same period a year ago. The company registered increase in revenue by 23 per cent at Rs 404 crore during the reported quarter compared to Rs 328.2 crore in the corresponding period last fiscal. The revenue of the company, however, declined by 3 per cent from its previous quarter revenue of Rs 417.7 crore.
"In a seasonally weak quarter the revenues of SSTL were impacted. The revenues declined for the first time since the start of the company¿s operations," SSTL President and Chief Executive Officer Vsevolod Rozanov said.
SSTL attributed decline in revenue growth on quarterly basis to "continued effect of TRAI changes in tariff structure" and "slowdown in subscriber acquisition activity". The continued effect of changes in tariff structure made by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India lead to drop in minutes of usage and average revenue that company earns from an user, it added.
"The subscriber growth during the quarter also suffered on account of uncertainties in the operating environment and due to the predatory practices adopted by competition," Rozanov added.
The Supreme Court on February 2 had cancelled 21 licences of SSTL along with 101 other permits that were issued during tenure of then Telecom Minister A Raja in 2008.
SSTL is majorly owned by Russian Conglomerate
