Moreover, the revenue growth of the PTCL Group is mostly driven by strong performance in the user segment steered by fixed broadband, mobile data, and business solutions, as well as microfinance services that helped the Group in attaining a 5.7 percent growth in revenue over the comparative period regardless of the challenges of the rise in Advance Income Tax (AIT) and decrease in Mobile Termination Rates (MTR). 

Meanwhile, the PTCL group has recorded a loss of Rs.3.05 billion during the first six months against the profit of Rs.2.93 billion in the corresponding period last year. 

As per the sources, PTCL’s revenue of Rs.40.0 billion for the reviewed period is 4.7 percent greater than 2021, mostly driven by broadband growth and business solutions segments. The company has reported an operating profit of Rs.1.9 billion. 

However, the operating profit for the period was under pressure from the last year mainly because of an upsurge in operating costs on account of a considerable hike in power and fuel tariffs. In addition, PTCL’s Net Profit of Rs.5.2 billion for the period is 38.8 percent greater than the same period of last year.
