Reliance Jio to Record a Profit this Quarter

January 12, 2018

Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio to announce a report of its December quarter performance and is expecting to record its first-ever quarterly profit.

Reliance Jio’s profits of this quarter

The October to December quarter is going to be Reliance Jio’s first profitable quarter. This important financial milestone of the company is coming in less than 18 months of its launch. Jio entered the telecom market of India with free services provided to the customers, which triggered a tariff war in the sector.

According to some analysts, the reason behind Jio being closer to seeing profits is because of the shakeout in the telecom industry. This has brought down a number of serious players in the industry.

At the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, last year, Mukesh Ambani, ame out with a warning for its rivals. He had announced that Reliance Jio is on its way to making profits.

July to September quarter of Jio

A pre-tax profit was reported in the July to September quarter by Reliance Jio. The profit was of INR 261 crore, which was its first-ever operating profit on standalone revenues of almost INR 6,147 crore. Though for the three months till September, Reliance Jio also faced a net loss of INR 270.5 crore.

Last year in September, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) reduced the interconnect charges for mobile calls to 6 paise from 14 paise. This led to a big blow for the older telecom companies and resulted in a potential boost for Reliance Jio.

Launch of Jio

It has been more than a year now when Ambani launched the fourth-generation wireless service, Jio. It disrupted the telecom market by offering data at cheap dirt prices and free calls on mobile phones. The older players of the telecom market were forced to cut down the prices of their data. Jio offered free voice calls and SMS, which were still not free on other telecom operators. This has helped the company to attract 160 million customers.

Mobile data consumption

The mobile data consumption in India has gone beyond the data consumption of the United States and China combined, in 2017. According to Ambani, the data consumed by Jio users is nearly more than the entire data consumption of the United States and 50 percent more than China. India has become the top country in the world for the usage of mobile data. He also said that it is with Jio that Indian customers are consuming 100 crore GB data monthly, which is more than 3.3 crore GB data daily.

2017 was a year of alteration and bitter competition in the telecom industry. With the demand of data fuelling the digital economy, 2018 might be the growth year for the telecom sector. According to reports from the Press Trust of India, it is estimated that an investment of around INR 3 lakh crore will be made in the coming two years.

Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio is set to announce its first-ever quarterly profit for the October to December quarter.

Reliance Jio to buy Wireless Assets of Reliance Communications

December 29, 2017

Mukesh Ambani Reliance Jio (RJio) has inked a pact with Anil Ambani’s Reliance Communications (RCom) to buy a majority of the latter’s wireless assets. Both the companies announced this in separate statements on 28th December, the day of the 85th birth anniversary of their father, Late Dhirubhai Ambani.

Wireless assets pact

RCom had received non-binding offers from around 15 companies for its wireless assets deal. RJio turned out to be the highest bidder and inked binding agreements with RCom. The wireless assets of RCom comprise all spectrum, fiber optic network, tower, and other components of the telecom infrastructure. The deal includes 122.4 MHz of 4G spectrum in four bands of 2,100, 1,800, 900, and 800; 43,000 towers; 248 media convergence nodes that cover an area of five million square feet; and 1.78 lakh route kilometer (RKM) fiber with countrywide footprint.

The sale is subject to approval from the government and other regulatory bodies, the release of all encumbrances on the assets, consent from all lenders, and other conditions. RJio will pay the consideration after the completion subject to adjustments given in the agreement. The consideration primarily consists of cash payment and includes the transfer of deferred spectrum installments, which needs to be paid to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT).

The two companies had earlier entered into agreements for sharing spectrum, tower infrastructure, and fiber network.

Win-win deal

The assets deal is said to be a win-win for both the companies. RJio will gain access to RCom’s valuable 4G spectrum and other wireless assets. This will give an additional firepower to the company in its telecom business. RJio mentioned in its statement that these assets are strategic in nature and they will significantly contribute to the company’s large-scale rollout of Fiber to Home and Enterprise and wireless services. On the other hand, RCom will be able to reduce its debt substantially. The company owed INR 45,000 crore at the end of October. Its statement mentioned that RCom will use the cash deal for pre-payment of its debt to the lenders.

Mahesh Uppal, Director at telecom consultant ComFirst India, stated that the deal would surely help RCom address its debts. He said that RJio understands the current value and history of these assets better than anyone else does and hence the deal will help RJio too.

RCom’s assets

RCom is looking to sell its assets and reduce its debt by INR 39,000 crore. Post the deal with RJio, the company will be left with its real estate assets and 134 MHz spectrum. It is understood that the company has already found bidders for the spectrum.

Impact of Reliance Jio

The launch of Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Jio in September 2016 shook the telecom industry in India. Its cut-price data and free voice affected other incumbent players. The strategy pushed RCom into a debt spiral. Bharti Airtel bought assets of other smaller telecom companies like Tikona Digital, Telenor India, and Tata group’s consumer mobile business. Besides, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular entered into a merger, which was announced during early 2017.
