What could be the possible reason behind this rally?

In the month of May 2021, media reports suggested Tata Sons is reviving Tata Teleservices in a new avatar called Tata Tele Business Services (TTBS), which will cater to small and medium enterprises (SME).

The stock of the company is witnessing heavy buying since then.

The revamped company will also support Tata Electronics, which was created to tap the SME segment, and its SuperApp digital platform, which will bring its various consumer services together.

For the unaware, the telecom operator went out of business when Reliance Jio came to the market, and the eventual tariff war broke out.

Tatas then signed a pact that transferred the consumer mobile business to Bharti Airtel, excluding the transfer of debt.

Back in 2020, Tata Sons had written off its investment of Rs 286 bn in Tata Teleservices.

Tata Tele Business Launched Smartflo

The company has already launched a product called 'Smartflo'. It's a cloud-hosted communications platform built specifically to cater to the needs of SMEs.

The platform stands to benefit the people who have a hybrid work culture wherein they work from home and other remote locations.

Smartflo is a very simple platform that users can access through both desktops and smartphones. TTBS will offer users call monitoring, intelligent call routing, and a dashboard to check all the outbound and inbound calls to the business.

The service from TTBS will stand to benefit businesses that deal with a large number of customers on a daily.

Last month, the company had announced the launch of Smart Internet, the industry's first smart internet leased, single suite, combining high speed internet with cloud-based security and greater control at an optimised cost.

Harjit Singh Chauhan, president of the enterprise business at Tata Teleservices, is heading the revamped entity, which is also looking at the 5G space, where it will offer services to other telecom operators.

Company's 5G effort will help to unlock value for shareholders

Tata Teleservices is further looking at the 5G space to grow its business. The 5G space will be very crucial for the enterprise segment since that is where all big money will be.

The firm can leverage the arrival of 5G in India as an opportunity to offer services to both telecom operators and SMEs and grow its business multiple folds.

The holding company of Tata Teleservices, Tata Sons acquired a controlling stake in telecom equipment maker Tejas Networks in July 2020.

To compete with other listed players, Tata group has been constantly trying to strengthen its telecom enterprise play under Tata Communications (TCS) and Tata Teleservices as well as seeking to enter contract manufacturing.

Promoter's stake

Tata Group companies hold a 74.36% stake in the company, according to the latest shareholding pattern.

Tata Teleservices holds a 48.3% stake in the company, while Tata Sons and Tata Power hold 19.58% and 6.48% stake, respectively.

Individual shareholders held 23.22% holding in the company.
