B2B telecoms provider 5G Networks (ASX: 5GN) has had a busy year so far in 2019.
And amid the key acquisitions and capital raises, the company is also still spinning plenty of revenue.
This morning’s quarterly filing showed 5GN booked $15.4m worth of cash receipts in the three months to March, up eight per cent from the previous quarter.
Quarterly net operating cashflows were positive at $629,000, up from $520k in Q2. Shares in 5GN were down slightly this morning at $1.09.
5GN provides a telecommunications platform for business customers, complemented by a service offering which includes cloud-based solutions and data management.
In late March, the company announced that its MPLS data network was now live across all capital cities, offering customers download speeds of up to 10GB.
Shares in the company have more than doubled from 50 cents at the start of February, ahead of its Q2 filing on February 25 which showed half-year revenues had risen by 1,900 per cent.
The aim of the purchase was to help vertically integrate the company’s data and cloud-based services, for which it currently pays $3.8m a year to third-party providers. 5GN said it hopes to achieve cost synergies of $600k in the first three months of MDC operations.
Also in April, the company went back to the market and raised another $8 million, via the issuance of 10m shares price at 80 cents.
The funding round saw “very strong demand”, and “provides the flexibility and agility to explore targeted and accretive acquisitions in addition to funding the planned east coast roll-out of 5GN’s fibre network,” the company said.
It’s been a pretty big morning for Tinybeans (ASX:TNY), the app which allows parents to securely share pictures of their children with family and friends. TNY shares surged more than 30 per cent to $1.06, after it announced the launch of a new content platform.
The new platform will allow Tinybeans to procure content from external sources, allowing for the proliferation of new information sources around parenting advice for the app’s 3.2 million users. At current prices, shares in TNY have now almost quadrupled from 27 cents in late February.
