Telemasters shares

Background of TeleMaster

  • TeleMasters Holdings is a voice, data and cloud-based corporate communications provider based in South Africa and licensed with ICASA. The group provides fixed-line, cellular, fixed data and virtual PBX services to SMEs and enterprise clients, with a presence in Gauteng, the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.

  • TeleMasters aims to offer live voice-over-network solutions as a carrier-neutral services provider, enabling a 35% savings on fixed and mobile corporate communications. The company also offers internet access services utilising fibre, leased line, licensed microwave and 3G online networks. The company’s two main technologies are LCR and Digital Direct+, which are fully integrated to provide one telecommunications solution to customers.

  • TeleMasters history stems back to 1998, and TeleMasters shares are today listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) with a market cap of R26 million. TeleMasters share price has yet to take off on the JSE, hovering at around R1 per share.

TeleMaster Shares Growth Driver

  • TeleMasters performance has been impacted by difficult economic conditions and competitive conditions within the telecommunications industry of South Africa. The company had revenue growth of 7.45% for the 2016 financial year, reflecting a 26% growth in new billings. Fall-off from disconnected and lost clients was substantially higher than in previous periods, which was attributed to increased economic pressure on SME customers. Gross margin increased to 35.2% as a result of migration and increase of customers on the fixed-line platform, as opposed to the legacy Least Cost Routing service, although this was offset by higher operating costs, the opening of additional marketing offices and an increase in technical support.

  • Data access to cloud services is the strategic which the group will buy into most, with newly introduced data services contributing to an increase in revenue. Six new product and service offerings were introduced during the period, to what the company described as good customer response.

  • With increased finance costs as a result of higher capital requirements of the Fixed Line platform, as well as additions to plant and equipment valued at more than double the previous year, cash generated from operations reduced from R8.4 million to R2.9 million. Overall, TeleMasters managed to chart a comprehensive profit of R2.013 million, compared to R2.75 million the previous year. Total dividends were slashed in half, from a total of R2.52 million paid out in 2015, to R1.26 million.

TeleMaster Group Investor Tip

  • The TeleMasters board has forecast that trade conditions will remain difficult, as proposed mergers by the ‘Big 5’ licensed telecommunications operators increasingly
    impact on the smaller independent market’s competitiveness. TeleMasters share price shows that the company has not attracted the attention of JSE investors. The group has said that it will increasingly buy into niche market segments such as integrated data service packages, customised support services and open-access Wi-Fi, but the outlook for the future remains stagnant. At present, TeleMasters shares are a potential buy only for adventurous small-cap investors willing to risk their money.
