“With iQSTEL’s maturing operations we are seeing improved profit margins,” commented Leandro Iglesias, CEO of iQSTEL. “Revenue growth remains high with the company on track to meet or exceed its $105 million 2023 forecast. Historically the second half of the year is better in terms of commercial activity. Therefore, we feel confident about reaching or exceeding our revenue objective of $105 million. Now we are tuning the operational engine that drives our monster growth and seeing better fuel efficiency through our profit margin improvements. iQSTEL has a very sound operation running under its hood. I expect our track record highlights for 2023 to be breaking $105 million in revenue and reporting our first annual positive operating income. The Q1 2023 gross profit performance bolsters our confidence.”
