The company says, “whilst revenue continues to be dragged by lockdown and competitive pressures, we are encouraged by the growth in EBITDA on the back of cost controls and its healthy EBITDA margin.”

Ncell managed 56.725% of EBITDA in 2020. In 2021, the company grew to 58.15% marking a YoY increase of 1.4%. Besides, its PATAMI also jumped to more than 100% from a low base in FY20 due to asset write-off.

Ncell closed its books of 2021 with a slight regress in revenues but with positives in EBITDA, and PATAMI. Ncell will also find encouragement by data consumption which has been massively soaring since the COVID-19 lockdown began. This year in 2022, Ncell would be keen on increasing its revenues and asserting its 5G approach further. The private telco could also roll out VoLTE calling feature this year.
