5BARz International, Inc. (“5BARz” or “the Company”), a technology leader in the cellular network extender industry, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, 5BARz India Pvt., has provided sales guidance for its operations in the Indian market for the remainder of 2016, as well as for calendar year 2017.
5BARz, through its subsidiary 5BARz India, continues to make significant inroads into the Indian market as it commercializes its network extender business in that country. In Q1 2016, 5BARz India received an initial purchase order for the 5BARz network extender from a tier-one telecommunications company in India and in Q2 2016 received a follow-on purchase order from that same entity. Additionally, 5BARz India recently received multiple purchase orders from a second, tier-one telecommunications company in India. After deploying a proven product and improving the cellular experience for consumers across India, and with the endorsement of the top two cellular operators in India as the partner of choice for boosting cellular coverage through its network extender, 5BARz India expects to have sales revenue of approximately $2 million during Q3 and Q4 2016 combined.
5BARz expects the sales momentum for the network extender in India to continue through the 2017 calendar year. With the adoption rate of the 5BARz network extender steadily increasing in India, and the planned onboarding of additional, tier-one telecommunications providers in that country, 5BARz India forecasts revenues of approximately $10 million in 2017.
Commenting on these forecasts, Samartha Nagabhushanam, Managing Director & CEO, 5BARz India Private Limited said, “Our manufacturing facilities, which are located in India, have the capacity to produce several thousand network extenders per month. Additionally, we have completed supply chain management operations. As a result, our delivery capacity, predictability and control are primed to support ongoing and increasingly large purchase orders from our current and future telecommunications provider customers.”
Daniel Bland, CEO, 5BARz International stated, “This is an exciting time for our Company, as we continue to make significant headway through the adoption of our network extender by two, top-tier telecommunications companies in India. They are not only the largest and second largest telco’s in India, but also are two of the three largest telco’s in the world, and we believe that their endorsement is indicative of the quality and market opportunity for our network extender product. I congratulate Samartha and the entire team in India and San Diego in achieving this major milestone, and look forward to the continued growth of our Company as we commercialize our innovative technology offerings.”
