TCL reported operating revenue of Rs. 110 billion for FY10 as compared to Rs. 100 billion for FY09, a moderate growth of 10%. Slowdown in pace of growth is attributed to price war experienced by the wholesale voice service segment. Increase in network cost by around 22% reduced EBITDA by 56 basis points. Interest cost rose by around 60% on account of debentures issued during FY10, further Neotel (South Africa) which is still in early growth phase reported a loss of Rs. 4.6 billion consequently the net loss for TCL stood at Rs. 6.9 billion in FY10 vis a vis net profit of Rs. 1.7 billion in FY09.

INDUSTRY PROFILE
Telecom Services Wireless The wireless segment has witnessed rapid growth in 2009-10, adding about 192 million subscribers. As of 31st March 2010, the total wireless subscriber base stood at 584 million as compared to 391 million subscribers at the end of March 2009, exhibiting the growth of 49 per cent y-o-y. Deeper penetration into existing areas and expansion into rural India has led to wider availability, while declining tariffs has increased affordability, resulting in proliferation of the service. However, the industry is characterised by severe competition which is expected to intensify further with service expansion of new licensees, implementation of mobile number portability (MNP) and launch of 3G services. Given the shift in the competitive landscape in the mobile services sector, driven by intense pricing pressure, profitability of existing players is expected to remain under pressure.
