IT company Tech Mahindra expects to soon hit USD 7 billion revenue run rate for current fiscal year, out of which the telecom vertical is estimated to contribute USD 3 billion, a top official of the company said on Monday.
Tech Mahindra Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer CP Gurnani told PTI that the company has hit a run rate of USD 1 billion (about Rs 8,300 crore), from 5G solutions that it provides to telecom companies. “We are at an annual revenue run rate of USD 6.6 billion. We expect to reach USD 7 billion run rate for this fiscal. Telecom vertical is expected to contribute USD 3 billion in this. We have already touched a revenue run rate of USD 1 billion from 5G services,” Gurnani said at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023.
“We believe this trend will continue because we have invested in these geographies. All the sectors within telcos, be it growth of fiber, fixed wireless, new product build and all the transformation on the digital side, have continued to provide us growth,” he said.
Talking about the impact of the global macroeconomic situation on the company, Vyas said uncertainty still remains across the globe and there will be an intense pressure on cost of services. “The overall macroeconomic situation still remains uncertain. People will need to conserve as we go forward. It is an important opportunity for us to continue to drive cost optimization through simplification. The broad macroeconomic situation also will evolve as we come out of this uncertain time. People will need to continue to innovate more. Particularly with the whole focus on generative AI as well as the way metaverse will be used by enterprises,” he said.
Vyas said that globally the company has acquired 42 new logos this year to whom it is providing network transformation including solutions for private 5G networks.”It is essentially a network on cloud, software defined network and private network. The growth driver has been a requirement of enterprises to simplify their operations and modernise tracking of their business data,” he said.
Gurnani said several companies are engaging with Tech Mahindra to simplify, modernise and monetise their networks, and rollout of 5G network across the globe will continue to drive business of the company.
“We are very keen to look at how the rollout of 5G and deployments will happen. It is a big year from a deployment standpoint. It is a big year for modernisation of the digital stack. I think telcos will look to find adjacencies with fintech, learning, manufacturing, IoT etc for growth. We are very excited about 2023. There are a lot of case studies that will emerge in all these areas,” Vyas said.
