Aussie Broadband share price rallies after FY21 results

What’s next for Aussie Broadband?

Looking ahead, Aussie Broadband managing director Phillip Britt commented, “We will continue our marketing and sales focus on organic growth of our residential and business/enterprise segments, as well as exploring new channels for growth. We will continue to review merger and acquisition opportunities that are aligned with our strategy and culture and would deliver value for our shareholders.”

Britt highlighted the company’s fibre build as a catalyst to drive cost savings and growth.

“We anticipate that our fibre network will start to show financial benefits not only through offloading existing leased infrastructure but also through the opportunity to directly connect customers to our own network,” Britt said.

According to the results, the fibre build will be complete this financial year. The company said more than 1,200 km of Aussie Broadband-owned fibre will be in the ground on completion.

The fibre build is expected to result in more than $15 million per year saving in backhaul charges from FY23 onwards.

Changing to be solutions focused

Aussie Broadband aspires to become a “one-stop-shop” for customers’ communications and IT requirements. Instead of selling connections to customers or third parties, the company said it wants to become an “expert [in] design, advice and implementation of solutions”.

The company’s results highlight a number of solutions-focused products under development. This could see the company branch out into cloud services, managed hardware and security in the near term.
