MIDRAND, South Africa--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MiX Telematics Limited (NYSE: MIXT) (JSE: MIX), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions delivered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2016, which ended March 31, 2016.

"For the full fiscal year 2016, we grew subscription revenue 16% and posted a 19% Adjusted EBITDA margin. Despite the contractions in fleet sizes from some of our customers in the energy sector, we grew by 53,800 net new subscribers, and finished the year with a base of over 566,000. As more customers are opting for fully bundled contracts, 80% of our revenue is now generated from subscriptions,” said Stefan Joselowitz, Chief Executive Officer of MiX Telematics. “We are performing well considering the challenging trading conditions in the energy and mining sectors.”

Financial performance for the three months ended March 31, 2016

Subscription revenue: Subscription revenue was R307.1 million ($20.7 million), an increase of 15.3% compared with R266.3 million ($18.0 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Growth in subscription revenue was driven primarily by an increase of over 53,800 subscribers, which resulted in an increase in subscribers of 10.5% from March 2015 to March 2016.

Total revenue: Total revenue was R384.0 million ($25.9 million), an increase of 4.4% compared to R367.7 million ($24.8 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Hardware and other revenue was R76.9 million ($5.2 million), a decrease of 24.1% compared to R101.4 million ($6.8 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. The decline in hardware and other revenue is primarily attributable to a shift towards bundled deals and lower sales activity in the oil and gas sector.

Gross margin: Gross profit was R285.0 million ($19.2 million), as compared to R257.4 million ($17.4 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Gross profit margin was 74.2%, compared to 70.0% for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, subscription revenue, which generates a higher gross profit margin than hardware and other revenue, contributed 80.0% of total revenue compared to 72.4% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. During the last quarter of fiscal 2016, a review of the useful life of product development costs capitalized was performed by the Central Services Organization segment . This review resulted in an extension of the useful life of certain projects and as a consequence a R6.4 million ($0.4 million) reduction in the product development amortization expense charged to cost of sales was recorded.

Operating margin: Operating profit was R45.7 million ($3.1 million), compared to R59.2 million ($4.0 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Operating margin was 11.9%, compared to 16.1% for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. The group has continued to invest in sales and marketing activities, and as a result sales and marketing costs increased by R14.0 million ($0.9 million) or 33.7% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Sales and marketing costs were 14.5% of revenue compared to 11.3% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Administration and other costs increased by R27.7 million ($1.9 million) or 17.6% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. A R21.5 million ($1.5 million) decline in hardware revenue also contributed to the operating margin reduction.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, was R77.6 million ($5.2 million) compared to R89.8 million ($6.1 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-IFRS measure, for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 was 20.2%, compared to 24.4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015.

Profit for the period and earnings per share: Profit for the period was R13.8 million ($0.9 million), compared to R52.1 million ($3.5 million) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. Profit for the period includes a net foreign exchange loss of R27.9 million ($1.9 million) before tax primarily relating to IPO proceeds which are maintained in U.S. Dollars and are therefore sensitive to R:$ exchange rate movements. Earnings per diluted ordinary share were 2 South African cents, compared to 7 South African cents in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016, the calculation was based on diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue of 760.6 million compared to 801.4 million diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

The Company's effective tax rate for the quarter was 29.6% in comparison to 37.1% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

On a U.S. Dollar basis, and using the March 31, 2016 exchange rate of R14.8330 per U.S. Dollar, and at a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one American Depositary Share ("ADS"), profit for the period was $0.9 million, or 3 U.S. cents per diluted ADS.

Adjusted earnings for the period and adjusted earnings per share: Adjusted earnings for the period, a non-IFRS measure, was R28.8 million ($1.9 million), compared to R38.7 million ($2.6 million) in the fourth quarter of the 2015 fiscal year and excludes a net foreign exchange loss of R27.9 million ($1.9 million) before tax. Adjusted earnings per diluted ordinary share, also a non-IFRS measure, were 4 South African cents, compared to 5 South African cents in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015.

On a U.S. Dollar basis, and using the March 31, 2016 exchange rate of R14.8330 per U.S. Dollar, and at a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, adjusted profit for the period was $1.9 million, or 6 U.S. cents per diluted ADS, compared to $2.6 million, or 8 U.S. cents per diluted ADS in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

Statement of financial position and cash flow: At March 31, 2016, the Company had R877.1 million ($59.1 million) of cash and cash equivalents, compared to R945.4 million ($63.7 million) at March 31, 2015. The Company generated R107.0 million ($7.2 million) in net cash from operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and invested R76.0 million ($5.1 million) in capital expenditures during the quarter, leading to free cash flow of R31.0 million ($2.1 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, compared with free cash flow of R57.8 million ($3.9 million) for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015. The decline in free cash generated is largely due to a R38.7 million ($2.6 million) increase in in-vehicle devices capital expenditure payments.

Financial performance for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016

Subscription revenue: Subscription revenue increased to R1,158.2 million ($78.1 million), up 16.0% from R998.3 million ($67.3 million) for fiscal year 2015. Subscription revenue growth was driven primarily by the addition of over 53,800 subscribers since the end of fiscal 2015, which resulted in an increase in subscribers of 10.5% from March 2015 to March 2016.

Total revenue: Total revenue for fiscal year 2016 was R1,465.0 million ($98.8 million), an increase of 5.4% compared to R1,389.4 million ($93.7 million) for fiscal year 2015. Hardware and other revenue was R306.8 million ($20.7 million), compared to R391.0 million ($26.4 million) for fiscal year 2015. The decline in hardware and other revenue is primarily attributable to a shift towards bundled deals and lower sales activity in the oil and gas sector.

Gross margin: Gross profit for fiscal year 2016 was R1,025.7 million ($69.2 million), an increase compared to R939.7 million ($63.4 million) for fiscal year 2015. Gross profit margin was 70.0%, up from 67.6% for fiscal year 2015. In fiscal 2016, subscription revenue, which generates a higher gross profit margin than hardware and other revenue, contributed 79.1% of total revenue compared to 71.9% in fiscal 2015.

Operating margin: Operating profit for fiscal year 2016 was R139.1 million ($9.4 million), compared to R149.9 million ($10.1 million) posted in fiscal year 2015. The operating margin for fiscal year 2016 was 9.5%, compared to the 10.8% posted in fiscal year 2015. The Company continues to execute its strategy of investing in sales and marketing and as a result sales and marketing costs for fiscal 2016 increased by R31.8 million ($2.1 million) or 18.5% from fiscal 2015. Sales and marketing costs were 13.9% of revenue compared to 12.4% in fiscal 2015. Administration and other costs increased by R62.4 million ($4.2 million) or 10.0% from fiscal 2015. A R77.4 million ($5.2 million) decline in hardware revenue also contributed to the operating margin reduction.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA was R277.2 million ($18.7 million) compared to R283.0 million ($19.1 million) for fiscal year 2015. The Adjusted EBITDA margin for fiscal year 2016 was 18.9%, compared with the 20.4% in fiscal year 2015.

Profit for the year and earnings per share: Profit for fiscal year 2016 was R182.5 million ($12.3 million), compared to R149.0 million ($10.0 million) in fiscal year 2015. Profit for the year includes a net foreign exchange gain of R144.0 million ($9.7 million) before tax. The net foreign exchange gain includes R143.6 million ($9.7 million) relating to a foreign exchange gain on the IPO proceeds which are maintained in U.S. Dollars and are therefore sensitive to R:$ exchange rate movements. Earnings per diluted ordinary share were 23 South African cents, compared to 19 South African cents in fiscal year 2015. For fiscal year 2016, the calculation was based on diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue of 783.4 million, compared to 804.4 million diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue during fiscal year 2015.

The Company's effective tax rate for fiscal year 2016 was 36.9% in comparison to 35.4% in fiscal year 2015.

Adjusted earnings for the year and adjusted earnings per share: Adjusted profit for fiscal year 2016, a non-IFRS measure, was R87.6 million ($5.9 million), compared to R102.0 million ($6.9 million) in fiscal year 2015 and excludes a net foreign exchange gain of R144.0 million ($9.7 million). Adjusted earnings per diluted ordinary share were 11 South African cents, compared to 13 South African cents in fiscal year 2015.

On a U.S. Dollar basis, and using the March 31, 2016 exchange rate of R14.8330 per U.S. Dollar, and at a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, adjusted profit for fiscal year 2016 was $5.9 million, or 19 U.S. cents per diluted ADS, compared to $6.9 million, or 21 U.S. cents per diluted ADS in fiscal year 2015.

Cash flow: The Company generated R240.4 million ($16.2 million) in net cash from operating activities for fiscal year 2016 and invested R241.9 million ($16.3 million) in capital expenditures during the period, leading to a negative free cash flow of R1.4 million ($0.1 million) for fiscal year 2016, compared with free cash flow of R88.3 million ($6.0 million) for fiscal year 2015. The decrease in free cash flow is primarily attributable to an increase in capital expenditures which increased by R112.6 million ($7.6 million) compared to fiscal year 2015. The Company utilized R223.2 million ($15.1 million) in financing activities, compared to R7.7 million ($0.5 million) generated during fiscal 2015. The cash utilized in financing activities includes share repurchases of R123.8 million ($8.3 million) and dividends paid of R107.2 million ($7.2 million).

An explanation of non-IFRS measures used in this press release is set out in the Non-IFRS financial measures section of this press release. A reconciliation of these non-IFRS measures to the most directly comparable IFRS measures is provided in the financial tables that accompany this release.

Segment commentary for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016

The segment results below are presented on an integral margin basis. In respect of revenue, this method of measurement entails reviewing the segmental results based on external revenue only. In respect of Adjusted EBITDA (the profit measure identified by the Group), the margin generated by our Central Services Organization (“CSO”), net of any unrealized inter-company profit, is now allocated to the geographic region where the external revenue is recorded by our Regional Sales Offices ("RSOs").

CSO continues as a central services organization that wholesales our products and services to our RSOs who, in turn, interface with our end-customers and distributors. CSO is also responsible for the development of our hardware and software platforms and provides common marketing, product management, technical and distribution support to each of our other operating segments. CSO's operating expenses are not allocated to each RSO.

Each RSO's results reflect the external revenue earned, as well as the Adjusted EBITDA earned (or loss incurred) by each operating segment before the CSO and corporate costs allocations.

For further information in this regard please refer to note 3 of the Group financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016.

Africa 711,208 12.4% 807,907 320,466 18.8% 39.7%
  The subscriber base has grown by 13.6% and was primarily responsible for the 12.4% increase in subscription revenue. Total revenue of R807.9 million increased by 13.8% primarily as a result of the increased subscription revenue. In addition to the revenue growth achieved, the region reported Adjusted EBITDA of R320.5 million which represents an increase of R50.7 million or 18.8% compared to the fiscal 2015 year. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 39.7% in the 2016 fiscal year.
Europe 110,251 25.5% 161,987 35,359 (10.2%) 21.8%
  The region's subscriber base grew 13.6% from March 31, 2015, and in constant currency subscription revenue growth was 11.0%. Despite the increased subscription revenue, total revenue declined by 10.3% on a constant currency basis due to lower hardware revenues. In Rand terms marginal revenue growth of 1.1% was achieved due to the weakening of the Rand against the British Pound. Despite the decline in revenue the region reported an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 21.8%.
Americas 115,413 18.0% 156,940 2,908 (92.1%) 1.9%
 

The Americas segment subscriber base declined by 8.9% from March 31, 2015 due to customer fleet size contraction in the oil and gas vertical. Subscription revenue declined by 5.3% on a constant currency basis, while total revenue declined by 24.2% on a constant currency basis due primarily to lower hardware sales. The Americas have historically sold hardware and associated services into their oil and gas customers. During the 2016 fiscal year the region saw two of these large customers re-sign their contracts on a bundled service basis (as opposed to purchasing the hardware required to upgrade to the 3G network up front), while the new Halliburton contract is also a bundled services contract. This strong shift towards bundled deals has directly resulted in a reduction of hardware revenues. While the region has strengthened its management and sales and distribution capacity in order to position itself for future growth, the decline in the subscriber base and lower hardware revenues resulted in Adjusted EBITDA of R2.9 million representing a decline of R33.8 million from the 2015 fiscal year in Rand terms.

Middle East and Australasia 202,163 21.6% 313,927 107,279 (1.4%) 34.2%
  Subscribers decreased 2.5% from March 31, 2015 while subscription revenue increased 6.9% on a constant currency basis. The overall decline in subscribers is attributable to economic headwinds experienced by the segment due to its primary focus being on the natural resources and oil and gas sectors. Total revenue declined by 17.3% on a constant currency basis primarily as a result of lower hardware revenues. The region, aided by cost efficiencies from restructuring activities in the second half of fiscal 2015, posted adjusted EBITDA of R107.3 million in Rand terms, which represents an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 34.2%.
Brazil 18,063 42.4% 23,129 1,931 8.3%
 

The subscriber base increased by 27.4% from March 31, 2015 while subscription revenue grew at 66.8% in constant currency due to the majority of new deals being concluded on a bundled basis during the year. While the operation remains in a start up phase, it posted positive Adjusted EBITDA for the first time, achieving an 8.3% Adjusted EBITDA margin.

Central Services Organization 1,131 23.2% 1,131 (113,403) (6.3%)
  CSO is responsible for the development of our hardware and software platforms and provides common marketing, product management, technical and distribution support to each of our other operating segments. The negative Adjusted EBITDA reported arises as a result of operating expenses carried by the segment.

Business Outlook

MiX Telematics has translated U.S. Dollar amounts in this Business Outlook paragraph from South African Rand at the exchange rate of R15.6610 per $1.00, which was the R/$ exchange rate reported by Oanda.com as at May 23, 2016.

Based on information as of today, May 26, 2016, the Company is issuing the following financial guidance for the full 2017 fiscal year:

  • Subscription revenue - R1,311 million to R1,330 million ($83.7 million to $84.9 million), which would represent subscription revenue growth of 13.2% to 14.8% compared to fiscal year 2016.
  • Total revenue - R1,575 million to R1,606 million ($100.6 million to $102.5 million), which would represent revenue growth of 7.5% to 9.6% compared to fiscal year 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA - R317 million to R337 million ($20.2 million to $21.5 million), which would represent Adjusted EBITDA growth of 14.4% to 21.6% compared to fiscal year 2016.
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted ordinary share of 11.3 to 13.1 South African cents based on a weighted average of 765 million diluted ordinary shares in issue, and based on an effective tax rate of 29.0% to 33.0%. At a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, this equates to adjusted earnings per diluted ADS of 18 to 21 U.S. cents.
  • If the specific repurchase of shares from a related party, as described in Note 19 to the Group financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, is completed by mid August 2016 as expected, Adjusted earnings per diluted ordinary share guidance for the full fiscal 2017 year is expected to be 13.5 to 15.7 South African cents based on a weighted average of 640 million diluted ordinary shares in issue, and based on an effective tax rate of 29.0% to 33.0%. At a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, this equates to adjusted earnings per diluted ADS of 22 to 25 U.S. cents. This calculation assumes that the expected completion of the specific repurchase of 200 million ordinary shares in mid August 2016 would reduce the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue by 125 million for the 2017 fiscal year and does not take into account any other accounting adjustments that may arise from the transaction.

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 the Company expects subscription revenue to be in the range of R303 million to R309 million ($19.3 million to $19.7 million) which would represent subscription revenue growth of 11.5% to 13.7% compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2016.

The key assumptions used in deriving the forecast are as follows:

  • Growth in subscription revenue and subscribers are based on expected growth rates related to market conditions and takes into account growth rates achieved previously.
  • Achieving hardware sales according to expectations. Hardware sales are dependent on the volumes of bundled solutions selected by customers.
  • An average forecast exchange rate for the 2017 fiscal year of R15.8000 per $1.00.

The forecast is the responsibility of the board of directors and has not been reviewed or reported on by the Company’s external auditors. The Company’s policy is to give guidance on a quarterly basis, if necessary, and does not update guidance between quarters.

The information disclosed in this “Business Outlook” paragraph complies with the disclosure requirements in terms of paragraph 8.38 of the JSE Listings Requirements which deals with profit forecasts.

Quarterly Reporting Policy in respect of JSE Listings Requirements

Following the listing of the Company’s ADSs on the New York Stock Exchange, the Company has adopted a quarterly reporting policy. As a result of such quarterly reporting the Company is, in terms of paragraph 3.4(b)(ix) of the JSE Listings Requirements, not required to publish trading statements in terms of paragraph 3.4(b)(i) to (viii) of the JSE Listings Requirements.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes certain “forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including without limitation, statements concerning our financial guidance for the first quarter and full year of fiscal year 2017, our position to execute on our growth strategy, our specific repurchase of shares from a related party, and our ability to expand our leadership position. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views about our plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to us and on assumptions we have made. Actual results may differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements and will be affected by a variety of risks and factors that are beyond our control including, without limitation, those described under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, as updated by other reports that the Company files with or furnishes to the SEC. The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this press release as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-IFRS financial measures

Adjusted EBITDA

To provide investors with additional information regarding its financial results, the Company has disclosed within this press release, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure, it does not represent cash flows from operations for the periods indicated and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company's results of operations or as an alternative to cash flows from operations as an indicator of liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as the profit for the period before income taxes, net finance income/(costs) including foreign exchange gains/(losses), depreciation of property, plant and equipment including capitalized customer in-vehicle devices, amortization of intangible assets including capitalized in-house development costs and intangible assets identified as part of a business combination, share-based compensation costs, transaction costs arising from the acquisition of a business or investigating strategic alternatives, restructuring costs, profits/(losses) on the disposal or impairments of assets or subsidiaries, insurance reimbursements relating to impaired assets and certain litigation costs.

The Company has included Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin in this press release because they are key measures that the Company's management and Board of Directors use to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends; to prepare and approve its annual budget; and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company's core business. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results.

The Company's use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider this performance measure in isolation from or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under IFRS. Some of these limitations are:

  • although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the potentially dilutive impact of equity-based compensation;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to the Company; and
  • other companies, including companies in the Company's industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including operating profit, profit for the year and the Company's other results.

Headline Earnings

Headline earnings per share is a profit measure required for JSE-listed companies and is calculated in accordance with circular 2/2015 issued by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants. The profit measure is determined by taking the profit for the year prior to certain separately identifiable re-measurements of the carrying amount of an asset or liability that arose after the initial recognition of such asset or liability net of related tax (both current and deferred) and related non-controlling interest.

Adjusted Profit and Adjusted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted earnings per share is defined as profit attributable to owners of the parent, MiX Telematics Limited, excluding net foreign exchange gains/(losses) net of tax, divided by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period.

We have included Adjusted earnings per share in this press release because it provides a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company's core business by excluding net foreign exchange gains/(losses) from earnings. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted earnings per share provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results.

Free cash flow

Free cash flow is determined as net cash generated from operating activities less capital expenditure per investing activities.

Constant currency and US Dollar financial information

Financial information presented in United States Dollars (“U.S. Dollars” and “$”) and constant currency financial information presented as part of the segment commentary constitute pro forma financial information under the JSE Listings Requirements. Unless otherwise stated, MiX Telematics has translated U.S. Dollar amounts from South African Rand (“R”) at the exchange rate of R14.8330 per $1.00, which was the R/$ exchange rate reported by Oanda.com as at March 31, 2016.

Constant currency information has been presented to illustrate the impact of changes in currency rates on the Group’s results. The constant currency information has been determined by adjusting the current financial reporting year’s results to the prior year’s average exchange rates, determined as the average of the monthly exchange rates applicable to the year. The measurement has been performed for each of the Group’s currencies, including the U.S. Dollar and British Pound. The constant currency growth percentage has been calculated by utilizing the constant currency results compared to the prior year results.

This pro forma financial information is the responsibility of the Group’s board of directors and is presented for illustrative purposes. Because of its nature, the pro forma financial information may not fairly present MiX Telematics’s financial position, changes in equity, results of operations or cash flows. The pro forma financial information does not constitute pro forma information in accordance with the requirements of Regulation S-X of the SEC or generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. In addition, the rules and regulations related to the preparation of pro forma financial information in other jurisdictions may also vary significantly from the requirements applicable in South Africa. An assurance report has been prepared and issued by our auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., in respect of the pro forma financial information included in this announcement that is available at the registered office of the Company. The reporting on the pro forma financial information by PricewaterhouseCoopers has not been carried out in accordance with the auditing standards generally accepted in the United States ("U.S.") and accordingly should not be relied upon by U.S. investors as if it had been carried out in accordance with those standards or any other standards besides the South African requirements mentioned above.

NOTES TO SUMMARY CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL RESULTS

1. Basis of preparation and accounting policies

The summary consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with the requirements of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements for preliminary reports and the requirements of the Companies Act applicable to summary financial statements. The Listings Requirements require preliminary reports to be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the SAICA Financial Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee and Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting Standards Council and to also, as a minimum, contain the information required by IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting.

The accounting policies applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements from which the summary consolidated financial statements were derived are in terms of International Financial Reporting Standards and are consistent with those accounting policies applied in the preparation of the previous consolidated annual financial statements, unless otherwise stated.

The summary consolidated annual financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Group’s annual financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2016, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRS.

The Group has adopted all the new, revised or amended accounting pronouncements as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) which were effective for the Group from April 1, 2015, none of which had a material impact on the Group.

Presentation currency and convenience translation

The Group’s presentation currency is South African Rand. In addition to presenting these summary consolidated financial results in South African Rand, supplementary information in U.S. Dollars has been prepared for the convenience of users of the Group financial results. Unless otherwise stated, the Group has translated U.S. Dollar amounts from South African Rand at the exchange rate of R14.8330 per $1.00, which was the R/$ exchange rate reported by Oanda.com as at March 31, 2016. The U.S. Dollar figures may not compute as they are rounded independently.

The supplementary information prepared in U.S. Dollars constitutes pro forma financial information under the JSE Listings Requirements. This pro forma financial information is the responsibility of the Group’s board of directors and is presented for illustrative purposes. Because of its nature, the pro forma financial information may not fairly present MiX Telematics’s financial position, changes in equity, results of operations or cash flows. The pro forma financial information does not constitute pro forma information in accordance with the requirements of Regulation S-X of the SEC or generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. In addition, the rules and regulations related to the preparation of pro forma financial information in other jurisdictions may also vary significantly from the requirements applicable in South Africa. An assurance report has been prepared and issued by our auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., in respect of the pro forma financial information included in this announcement that is available at the registered office of the Company. The reporting on the pro forma financial information by PricewaterhouseCoopers has not been carried out in accordance with the auditing standards generally accepted in the U.S. and accordingly should not be relied upon by U.S. investors as if it had been carried out in accordance with those standards or any other standards besides the South African requirements mentioned above.

The Group’s summary consolidated annual financial statements were prepared under the supervision of the Group Chief Financial Officer, ML Pydigadu CA(SA). The results were made available on May 26, 2016.

The summary consolidated annual financial statements (excluding the commentary, pro forma financial information presented in U.S. Dollars, basic and diluted earnings and basic and diluted headline earnings information relating to American Depository Shares, the free cash flow reconciliation to net cash generated from operating activities and the disclosure included in notes 5 and 17 (relating to subscriber numbers) and the Unaudited Group financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016) hereinafter defined as audited summary consolidated financial statements, for the year ended March 31, 2016 have been derived from the audited consolidated annual financial statements. The directors of MiX Telematics Limited take full responsibility for the preparation of the preliminary summary consolidated annual financial statements and that the financial information has been correctly derived from the underlying audited consolidated annual financial statements. These audited summary consolidated financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2016 have been audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., who expressed an unmodified opinion thereon. The auditor also expressed an unmodified opinion on the annual financial statements from which these audited summary consolidated financial statements were derived.

A copy of the auditor’s report on the audited summary consolidated financial statements and of the auditor’s report on the consolidated financial statements are available for inspection at MiX Telematics Limited's registered office, together with the financial statements identified in the respective auditor’s reports.

The auditor’s report does not necessarily report on all of the information contained in these financial results. Shareholders are therefore advised that in order to obtain a full understanding of the nature of the auditor’s engagement they should obtain a copy of the auditor’s report together with the accompanying financial information from MiX Telematics Limited’s registered office.

3. Segment information

In fiscal 2016, our operating segments are based on the geographical location of our Regional Sales Offices (“RSOs”) and also include our Central Services Organization (“CSO”). CSO is our central services organization that wholesales our products and services to our RSOs who, in turn, interface with our end-customers, distributors and dealers. CSO is also responsible for the development of our hardware and software platforms and provides common marketing, product management, technical and distribution support to each of our other operating segments.

While our operating segments have remained consistent in fiscal 2016 compared to prior years, the basis of measurement for revenues and Adjusted EBITDA has changed. During the fiscal 2016 year, the chief operating decision maker ("CODM") has been reviewing the segment results on an integral margin basis as defined by management. Previously, the margin (and the revenue) generated by CSO due to intercompany transactions was recognized at the CSO level with a corresponding cost recognized in the respective geographic segment. In fiscal 2016, management have eliminated those intercompany profits such that CSO no longer reflects the intercompany margin and the RSOs have recognized all of the revenue relating to activity generated in their region with an allocated portion of the margin from CSO (net of intercompany unrealized profits) for that region. The costs remaining in CSO relate mainly to research and development of hardware and software platforms, common marketing, product management, technical and distribution support to each of the RSOs. CSO continues to be a reportable segment of the Group because it produces discrete financial information which is reviewed by the CODM and has the ability to generate external revenues.

Each operating segment’s results reflect the external revenue earned, as well as the Adjusted EBITDA earned (or loss incurred) by each operating segment before the remaining CSO and corporate costs allocations. This is consistent with the manner in which segment information was reviewed by the CODM in the fiscal 2016 year. Segment assets are not disclosed as segment information is no longer reviewed on such a basis by the CODM.

The tables below present the segment information on this revised measurement basis, with the 2015 fiscal year amended to conform to the current year presentation as shown below.

6. Stated Capital

Stated capital reduced by R123.8 million ($8.3 million) during the 2016 fiscal year as a result of the share repurchase program which commenced in September 2015 (note 8). The acquirer of the shares, MiX Investments, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. This decrease was offset by R7.7 million or $0.5 million (2015: R7.7 million or $0.5 million) in respect of shares issued in relation to share options exercised.

7. Net Cash

Net cash is calculated as being net cash and cash equivalents, excluding restricted cash less interest bearing borrowings.

8. Share Repurchase Program

During fiscal 2016, the MiX Telematics Board approved a share repurchase program under which the Group could repurchase up to 40,000,000 of its ordinary shares (up to 1,600,000 ADSs) through to March 15, 2016. As of March 31, 2016, 40,000,000 shares had been repurchased at a total cost of R123.8 million ($8.3 million), at an average price of R3.09 ($0.21) per share. The following terms were applicable to the share repurchase program:

  • The Group could repurchase its shares from time to time in its discretion through open market transactions and block trades, based on ongoing assessments of the capital needs of the Group, the market price of its securities and general market conditions.
  • This share repurchase program could be discontinued at any time by the Board of Directors, and the Group had no obligation to repurchase any amount of its securities under the program.
  • The repurchase program was funded out of existing cash resources.

Details of the purchases made by MiX Investments during the 2016 fiscal year, are as follows:

  • 973,954 ADSs (representing 24,348,850 ordinary shares) were purchased on September 17, 2015 at a price of $5.85 per ADS. The ADSs were repurchased at a cost of R76.8 million ($5.2 million) including transaction costs of R0.5 million ($0.04 million).
  • 5,000,000 ordinary shares were purchased on September 17, 2015 at a price of R3.15 per share. The shares were repurchased for R15.9 million ($1.1 million) including transaction costs of R0.1 million ($0.01 million).
  • 4,394,462 ordinary shares were purchased on December 11, 2015 at a price of R2.80 per share. The shares were repurchased for R12.4 million ($0.8 million) including transaction costs of R0.1 million ($0.01 million).
  • 805,184 ordinary shares were purchased on December 17, 2015 at a price of R2.90 per share. The shares were repurchased for R2.4 million ($0.2 million) including transaction costs of R0.02 million ($0.001 million).
  • 3,079,485 ordinary shares were purchased on December 18, 2015 at a price of R2.96 per share. The shares were repurchased for R9.2 million ($0.6 million) including transaction costs of R0.06 million ($0.004 million).
  • 2,372,019 ordinary shares were purchased on December 21, 2015 at a price of R3.00 per share. The shares were repurchased for R7.2 million ($0.5 million) including transaction costs of R0.05 million ($0.003 million).

9. Dividends

During fiscal 2016 the Board decided to reintroduce the Company’s policy of paying regular dividends which going forward will be considered on a quarter-by-quarter basis.

The following dividends were declared by the Company in fiscal 2016 (excluding dividends paid on treasury shares):

  • In respect of the 2015 fiscal year, a dividend of R61.5 million ($4.1 million) was declared on August 25, 2015 and paid on September 21, 2015. Using shares in issue of 768,601,150 (excluding 24,573,850 treasury shares), this equated to a dividend of 8 South African cents per share.
  • In respect of the first quarter of fiscal year 2016 which ended on June 30, 2015, a dividend of R15.4 million ($1.0 million) was declared on August 25, 2015 and paid on September 21, 2015. Using shares in issue of 768,601,150 (excluding 24,573,850 treasury shares), this equated to a dividend of 2 South African cents per share.
  • In respect of the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 which ended on September 30, 2015 a dividend of R15.3 million ($1.0 million) was declared on November 5, 2015 and paid on November 30, 2015. Using shares in issue of 764,140,181 (excluding 30,334,819 treasury shares), this equated to a dividend of 2 South African cents per share.
  • In respect of the third quarter of fiscal year 2016 which ended on December 31, 2015 a dividend of R15.1 million ($1.0 million) was declared on February 4, 2016 and paid on February 29, 2016. Using shares in issue of 755,137,500 (excluding 40,000,000 treasury shares), this equated to a dividend of 2 South African cents per share.

10. Fair value of financial assets and liabilities measured at amortized cost

The fair values of trade and other receivables, restricted cash, cash and cash equivalents, trade payables, accruals, bank overdrafts and other payables approximate their book values as the impact of discounting is not considered material due to the short-term nature of both the receivables and payables.

11. Provisions

The Group is involved in a supplier dispute and certain taxation matters specific to the respective jurisdictions in which the Group operates. These matters may not necessarily be resolved in a manner that is favorable to the Group. The Group has therefore recognized provisions in respect of these matters based on estimates and the probability of an outflow of economic benefits and should not be construed as an admission of legal liability. A provision of R11.1 million ($0.7 million) has been raised during fiscal 2016.

12. Contingencies

Service agreement

In terms of an amended network services agreement with Mobile Telephone Networks Proprietary Limited (“MTN”), MTN is entitled to claw back payments from MiX Telematics Africa Proprietary Limited in the event of early cancellation of the agreement or certain base connections not being maintained over the term of the agreement. No connection incentives will be received in terms of the amended network services agreement. The maximum potential liability under the arrangement is R53.0 million or $3.6 million (2015: R51.1 million or $3.4 million). No loss is considered probable under this arrangement.

13. Change in estimate of useful lives of product development costs capitalized

During fiscal 2016 the CSO segment extended the useful lives of certain projects where on average the useful lives were increased from 4.5 years to 5.9 years. The extension of the useful lives resulted in a R6.4 million ($0.4 million) reduction in the product development amortization expense relative to what it would have been in Fiscal 2016. R2.2 million ($0.1 million), R2.1 million ($0.1 million), R1.4 million ($0.1 million), R0.6 million ($0.04 million) and R0.1 million ($0.01 million) of this amortization reduction is expected to be charged to the income statement in the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 fiscal years, respectively.

14. Investigating strategic alternatives

During the 2016 fiscal year, the Board of Directors entered into a process of investigating strategic alternatives relating to the Group. This extensive review, conducted with guidance from external advisers, included the optimization of capital structures and an evaluation of various ownership options.

15. Taxation

MiX Telematics International Proprietary Limited ("MiX International"), a subsidiary of the Group, historically claimed a 150% allowance for research and development spend in terms of section 11D ("S11D") of the South African Income Tax Act of 1962 ("the Act"). As of October 1, 2012, the legislation relating to the allowance was amended. The amendment requires pre-approval of development project expenditure on a project specific basis by the South African Department of Science and Technology ("DST") in order to claim a deduction of the additional 50% over and above the expenditure incurred (150% allowance). Since the amendments to S11D of the Act, MiX International had been claiming the 150% deduction resulting in a recognized tax benefit of R8.5 million ($0.6 million). MiX International has complied with the amended legislation by submitting all required documentation to the DST in a timely manner, commencing in October 2012.

In June 2014, correspondence was received from the DST indicating that the research and development expenditure on certain projects for which the 150% allowance was claimed did not, in the DST’s opinion, constitute qualifying expenditure in terms of the Act. MiX International continues, through due legal process, to formally seek a review of the DST’s decision not to approve the expenditure. There has been no significant development in relation to this matter during fiscal 2016 and the process is ongoing. Consequently, at March 31, 2016, MiX International has an uncertain tax position relating to S11D deductions. MiX International has paid the R8.5 million ($0.6 million) related to the S11D deductions to the South African Revenue Service. The Group has considered this uncertain tax position and recognized a tax asset of R8.5 million ($0.6 million) at March 31, 2016. If the Group is unsuccessful in obtaining DST approval in this specific matter, the Group will not recover the tax asset and will incur an additional taxation expense of up to R8.5 million ($0.6 million) relating to the additional 50% claimed.

16. Contingent Consideration Paid

On November 1, 2014, the Group acquired the operating business of Compass Fleet Management Proprietary Limited (“Compass”), a South Africa based provider of specialized fleet management solutions in Southern Africa that are delivered off the Group’s hardware and software platform. Payment of the contingent consideration was contingent on the achievement of agreed revenue and profit targets for the period November 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015. The agreed revenue and profit targets were achieved and the R18.0 million ($1.2 million) was paid to the former owners during May 2015.

19. Events after the reporting period

Other than the items below, the directors are not aware of any matter material or otherwise arising since March 31, 2016 and up to the date of this report, not otherwise dealt with herein.

Specific repurchase of shares from related party

On April 29, 2016 the Company entered into an agreement (the “share repurchase agreement”) with Imperial Holdings Limited ("Imperial Holdings") and Imperial Corporate Services Proprietary Limited ("Imperial Corporate Services"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Imperial Holdings, which currently holds 25.13% of the Company’s issued share capital, to repurchase all 200,828,260 of the Company’s shares held by Imperial Corporate Services (the “repurchase shares”) at R2.36 ($0.16) per repurchase share, for an aggregate repurchase consideration of R474.0 million or $32.0 million (the “repurchase”).

In respect of the repurchase shares, Imperial Corporate Services will be entitled to receive any dividend which is declared after April 29, 2016, the record date for which falls prior to the date the repurchase is implemented.

The repurchase remains subject to the fulfilment, or waiver, as the case may be, of the following conditions precedent:

  • the Board of directors of the Company approving all requisite Companies Act, 71 of 2008, (the “Companies Act”) and JSE resolutions relating to the repurchase and the share repurchase agreement;
  • the written resignations by M Lamberti and G Nakos as director and alternate director of the Company with effect from the fulfilment date of the conditions precedent;
  • the Company obtaining the necessary approvals for the repurchase from the JSE and the Takeover Regulation Panel (“TRP”);
  • the Company obtaining a JSE and TRP fairness opinion in respect of the repurchase;
  • the shareholders of the Company approving the repurchase in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements and the Companies Act.

In terms of the share repurchase agreement, the Company is entitled to assign some or all of its rights in terms of the share repurchase agreement to a subsidiary. Any repurchase shares acquired by a subsidiary of the Company will be held in treasury and any repurchase shares acquired by the Company will again form part of the authorized but unissued share capital of the Company upon repurchase.

The share repurchase agreement includes a restraint in favor of the Company whereby the Imperial group undertakes not to acquire a business which competes with the Company for a period of 2 years and non-solicitation undertakings as well as warranties and undertakings which are normal for a transaction of this nature.

Dividend Declared

On May 24, 2016 the board declared in respect of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 which ended on March 31, 2016, a dividend of 2 South African cents (0.1 U.S cents) per ordinary share to be paid on June 20, 2016.

Financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016

In addition to the Group’s financial results for the year ended March 31, 2016, additional financial information in respect of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 has been presented together with the relevant comparative information. The quarterly information comprises a condensed consolidated income statement, a reconciliation of adjusted earnings to profit for the period attributable to owners of the parent (note 3), a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to profit for the period (note 4) and a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA margin to profit for the period margin (note 5) and other financial and operating data (note 6).

The accounting policies used in preparing the financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016 are consistent in all material respects with those applied in the preparation of the Group’s annual financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2015.

The quarterly financial results have not been audited or reviewed by the Group’s external auditors.

The condensed unaudited Group quarterly financial results do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the Group’s annual financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2016, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRS.

2. Presentation currency and convenience translation

The Group’s presentation currency is South African Rand. In addition to presenting these condensed consolidated financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 in South African Rand, supplementary information in U.S. Dollars has been prepared for the convenience of users of this report. Unless otherwise stated, the Group has translated U.S. Dollar amounts from South African Rand at the exchange rate of R14.8330 per $1.00, which was the R/$ exchange rate reported by Oanda.com as at March 31, 2016.
