Why the 5G Networks share price has doubled in 3 months

The 5G Networks Limited (ASX: 5GN) share price rocketed 9% to a record high $1.61 today despite the telecommunications provider not releasing any specific news to the market. 5G Networks is involved in the provision of internet services in the business to business market and reports that it currently has more than 2,000 business customers across Australia. 

According to its latest regulatory filing, 5G has just over 45 million shares on issue to give it a market value of $72 million, with it posting an operating profit of $629,000 on revenue of $15.4 million for the quarter ending March 31 2019.

In April 2019 it raised $8 million from professional investors via the issue of 10 million new shares at 80 cents per share, with the capital reportedly being used to expand its fibre optic communications network on Australia’s east coast and in extending its services range. 

Others in the dark fibre space in Australia to have grown far bigger from relatively modest starts include TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPM), Vocus Group Ltd (ASX: VOC) and Superloop Ltd (ASX: SLC)
