Jul 6, 2021

Himachal Futuristic Communications (HFCL) shares gained as much as 20% on the BSE on Monday after the company set up a second open wifi-powered village in Karnataka, ahead of its board meeting.

Input Output (IO), a product by HFCL, has deployed a second so-called 'PM-WANI Village' network in the Baidebattu village located in Karnataka.

The network will provide wi-fi-based internet access to 9,000 residents of the otherwise poorly connected village, the company said.

The company's board will also meet on 12 July 2021, to consider and approve the results for the quarter ending on 30 June 2021.

What led to the sudden surge in the share price of HFCL?

A sharp rally in the stock price has seen the market capitalization of HFCL vault past the Rs 100 bn mark.

Currently, HFCL's market capitalisation stands at Rs 120 bn on the BSE.

Apart from deploying networks in Punjab and Jharkhand, HFCL also supplies fibre optic cables in Maharashtra, Telangana, and Chhattisgarh under Bharat Net projects.

5G technology is the next big upgrade for telecommunication networks and HFCL is gearing up to offer various products, solutions and services for this segment.

The capex required for 5G deployments in India are likely to entail massive investments of around Rs 3,650 bn in the next 5-6 years.

Open radio access network (OpenRAN) architecture enable network operators to design and implement 4G and 5G networks from different vendors leading to huge opportunities for manufacturers.

Under Bharat Net Phase II Project, Wi-Fi, infrastructure, electronics and optic networks bring out a Rs 400 bn opportunity.

In a statement, the company said,

  • The disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic have increased the demand for home and industrial internet of things (IoT) devices and applications.

    The production linked incentive (PLI Scheme) by the government to incentivize the indigenous telecom product manufacturers increases the profitability and competitiveness.

HFCL expansion plans in India

Even though pandemic resulted in massive chaos across multiple industries, the tech industry witnessed significant growth resulting in expansion plans by companies.

HFCL has also hopped on the bus and earmarked Rs 2 bn for the current year.

A major chunk of the funds will be used for the expansion of capacity at its Hyderabad plant and the restructuring of Goa and Chennai facilities.

Equitymaster's view on the telecom sector

We reached out to Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research at Equitymaster, and editor of the premium stock recommendation service StockSelect, for her view on the telecom sector.

Here's what she has to say...

  • While the telecom sector can have huge upsides due to 5G, investors must be very selective about the stocks. Higher-than-expected investments in spectrum acquisition or 5G deployment remain a risk.

    Other than a few telecom companies, most others do not have sufficient balance sheet strength.
