For a small-cap stock, iQSTEL, Inc. (OTC: IQST) is doing some extraordinary things. In fact, this roughly $1.00 stock is earning every bit of its new found attention by utilizing cutting-edge technologies to reach an expected $60.5 million in 2021 revenues. Even as a small-cap, IQST meets client demands to deliver 21st-century telecommunications products and services. Better still, IQST appears to be not only meeting expectations; they may be exceeding them, demonstrated by the sharp jump in YoY revenues.
There's a reason that IQST is expected to surge from $44 million in 2020 revenues to an expected $60.5 million this year. It's because by capitalizing on its six subsidiaries: Etelix, SwissLink, QGlobal SMS, SMSDirectos, IoT Labs, and its Bchain, IQST is successfully capitalizing on global-client demand to provide leading-edge telecommunication and technology services throughout the world. Of course, having a business presence in 13 countries certainly helps that effort.
Moreover, its subsidiaries help to diversify its offering. The company is earning business from subsidiary operations that provide services to the Telecommunications, Financial Services, Liquid Fuel Distribution, and Electric Vehicle Industries sectors. They break it down into three core Business Divisions: Telecom, Technology, and Fintech. The important takeaway is that each division is contributing to the record-setting growth.
And that growth is intentional.
Growing Through Expertise And Execution
In fact, IQST is tapping into its own decades' worth of management expertise to leverage its extensive portfolio of client products and services, including SMS, VoIP, 4G & 5G international infrastructure connectivity, Cloud-PBX, and OmniChannel Marketing. The company also offers its innovative IoT Smart Gas Platform and an IoT Smart Electric Vehicle Platform, which has earned prestigious industry recognition at recent trade shows. IQST is currently seizing new market opportunities by expanding its Mobile Number Portability Application MNPA (Blockchain), Settlement & Payments Marketplace (Blockchain), Visa Debit Card, Money Remittance, and Pay Mobile Phone Services. Each target international opportunities to serve, at least initially, underserved consumer markets. They could even beat giants ATT (NYSE:T), Verizon (NYSE: VZ), and Vodaphone (NASDAQ: VOD) to some of these niche markets.
Better news going forward is that IQST is planning to do more than only serve wholesale opportunities. In an interview, the CEO noted that in addition to pursuing its subsidiaries' growth and development, they plan to expand its services to the retail market by offering international long-distance voice communications to corporate, small business, and individuals (ILD retail). The best news is that these services can already be supported by IQST's current infrastructure.
Moreover, with new ventures likely developed through mergers, acquisitions, or strategic partnerships, the company can grow even faster. An example is a deal made in November with Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTC Pink: ALYI). There, the two companies have signed a letter of intent for IQSTEL's Internet of Things (IoT) development team to combine efforts with Alternet's EV engineering and design program to co-develop two-way device communication solutions specific to the EV operating environment. The deal is part of Alternet's plans to build out a comprehensive EV ecosystem.
Part of that plan includes Alternet System's first-generation EV motorcycle, ReVolt, designed to help penetrate the potentially lucrative African rideshare market. They will follow Uber and Lyft services, which are pioneering that market. For Alternet and IQST, the job goes beyond getting the EV bikes into production. They want to benefit financially from developing innovative battery solutions and a communications system that can extend beyond its own use.
That partnership could be interesting in 2021. IQST's other initiatives likely are as well.

Growth Through Subsidiaries
Coverage of IQSTEL's subsidiary IoT Labs MX is earning attention. That unit specializes in Internet of Things (IoT) design and development, specializing in the wireless and vehicle telematics space to provide product-based solutions. Already, IoT Lab MX has developed the IoT Smart Gas Platform, a platform that consists of an IoT field device installed on any LP gas tank (adaptable to virtually any gas or liquid storage tank). Then, the Internet of Things (IoT) technology connectivity via Sigfox or GSM network allows for remote management and improved logistic refilling processes. The innovative tool shows usage tracking and tank monitoring in real-time through the Smart Gas mobile app. Better still, the GSM tracking feature allows for mobile use, including ground, air, and sea tank monitoring.
IoT Labs MX is also working with Alternet's EV motorcycle design program -orchestrated by MODUS- to develop two-way device communication in the Revolt Electric Motorcycles. The comprehensive system is expected to integrate functions including Geolocation, Battery Management, Theft and Accident Interfacing with Emergency Services, and Remote Maintenance Management. Plans also allow the system to offer Vehicle Body and Component Leasing Management, Driver and Passenger Personal Mobile Device Interface, and Rideshare System Interface.
For Alternet, they are a part of a potentially lucrative collaborative development agreement. For IQST, they get an inroad into the electric vehicle (EV) industry, with plans to capitalize from its IoT Smart EV, an IoT device.
What looks to be a sure bet is that IQST will continue to grow in 2021. Already, they offer a one-stop-shop of products and services that fill demand from several industries. Also, by accelerating its IoTSmartEV and Fintech Business development, growth could come from two additional sources of business. Updates on those programs are likely coming soon.
Finding Its True Value In 2021
At roughly $1.00 a share, IQST could be one of the most undervalued telecommunications stocks on the OTC. Their $44 million in 2020 revenues is already impressive. But, with January and February each posting close to $5 million in sales during 2021, they are certainly on track to reach the high end of its $60.5 million guidance. On a revenue multiple alone, IQST is substantially undervalued.
Now, with an update on March sales likely to be published soon, investors may want to look at the stock while it's taking a pause from its massive YTD run. The shares are roughly 400% higher from the start of the year and traded much higher on news of a partnership with a Fortune 500 company in February. But, don't let that surge in price scare you.
When news hits, IQST tends to run higher quickly. Thus, for those considering a position in this OTC gem, acting sooner on a decision rather than later could be a wise move.
