Globe’s non-telco revenues now account for 3.4% of its total gross service revenues, marking a significant milestone in the company’s history. This is attributed to the impressive performance of its subsidiaries and affiliates particularly ECPay and Asticom, followed by notable contributions from AdSpark and Yondu.

Mynt’s contribution now represents 6.4% of the group’s net income before tax, underscoring its growing influence on Globe’s financial health.
