MIDRAND, South Africa & BOCA RATON, Fla., October 28, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MiX Telematics Limited ("MiX Telematics") (NYSE: MIXT, JSE: MIX), a leading global Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") provider of connected fleet management solutions, today announced financial results, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended September 30, 2021.

"MiX is back on a growth trajectory, highlighted by our second consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue expansion. In Q2, we almost doubled the number of net subscriber adds compared to the first quarter, contributing to Annualized Recurring Revenue growth of 5% since the beginning of the year. We are seeing positive trends in both our light- and premium- fleet portfolios, and the business environment in many of our key end markets has strengthened," said Stefan Joselowitz, Chief Executive Officer of MiX Telematics.

Joselowitz continued, "We are committed to investing in our growth initiatives while continuing to deliver high levels of profitability. Our performance in the first half of the year positions the company well to achieve our financial and operational objectives for fiscal 2022."

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021

Subscription Revenues: Subscription revenues were $30.9 million, an increase of 11.8% compared to $27.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Subscription revenues represented 85.6% of total revenues during the second quarter of fiscal 2022. Subscription revenues increased by 2.9% on a constant currency basis, year over year. During the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company’s subscriber base grew by a net 16,700 subscribers.

The majority of our revenues and subscription revenues are derived from currencies other than the U.S. Dollar. Accordingly, the weakening of the U.S. Dollar against these currencies (in particular against the South African Rand) following recent currency volatility, has positively impacted our revenue and subscription revenues reported in U.S. Dollars. Compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, the South African Rand strengthened by 14% against the U.S. Dollar. The Rand/U.S. Dollar exchange rate averaged R14.62 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to an average of R16.91 during the second quarter of fiscal year 2021. The impact of translating foreign currencies to U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates during the second quarter of fiscal 2022 led to a 8.9% increase in reported U.S. Dollar subscription revenues.

Total Revenues: Total revenues were $36.1 million, an increase of 16.6% compared to $30.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Total revenues increased by 7.6% on a constant currency basis, year over year. Hardware and other revenues were $5.2 million, an increase of 56.1%, compared to $3.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

The impact of translating foreign currencies to U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates during the second quarter of fiscal 2022 led to a 9.0% increase in reported U.S. Dollar revenues.

Gross Margin: Gross profit was $23.0 million, compared to $20.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Gross profit margin was 63.7%, compared to 66.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The decline in the gross profit margin was due to the increase in hardware and other revenues which carry lower margins than subscription revenue. The subscription revenue margin during the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was 70.2%.

Income From Operations: Income from operations was $3.7 million, compared to $4.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating income margin was 10.3%, compared to 14.8% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating expenses of $19.2 million increased by $3.2 million, or 19.7%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share: Net income was $1.3 million, compared to net income of $3.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. During the second quarter of fiscal 2022, net income included a net foreign exchange gain of $0.1 million before tax, as well as a $0.9 million deferred tax charge on a U.S. Dollar intercompany loan between MiX Telematics and MiX Telematics Investments Proprietary Limited ("MiX Investments"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. During the second quarter of fiscal 2021, net income included a net foreign exchange loss of $0.1 million before tax and a $0.3 million deferred tax credit on a U.S. Dollar intercompany loan between MiX Telematics and MiX Investments.

Earnings per diluted ordinary share was 0.2 U.S. cents, compared to 0.6 U.S. cents in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. For the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the calculation was based on diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue of 565.6 million compared to 559.0 million diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. On a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one American Depositary Share ("ADS"), earnings per diluted ADS were 6 U.S. cents compared to 15 U.S. cents in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

The Company’s effective tax rate was 65.7%, compared to 22.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Ignoring the impact of net foreign exchange losses net of tax, the tax rate used in determining non-GAAP net income below was 38.6% compared to 28.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $7.9 million, compared to $8.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP measure, for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was 21.9%, compared to 28.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share: Non-GAAP net income was $2.3 million, compared to $3.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP net income per diluted ordinary share was 0.4 U.S. cents, compared to 0.6 U.S. cents in the second quarter of fiscal 2021. At a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, the non-GAAP net income per diluted ADS was 10 U.S. cents compared to 14 U.S. cents in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.

Cash and Cash Equivalents and Cash Flow: At September 30, 2021, the Company had $39.8 million of cash and cash equivalents, compared to $45.5 million at March 31, 2021.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $5.9 million compared to $11.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company invested $9.1 million in capital expenditures (including investments in in-vehicle devices of $6.8 million), leading to negative free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, of $3.1 million in the quarter. The Company generated free cash flow of $8.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 when the Company invested $2.6 million in capital expenditures (including investments in in-vehicle devices of $1.6 million).

Net cash used in financing activities amounted to $2.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $0.1 million provided during the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The cash used in financing activities during the second quarter of fiscal 2022 mainly consisted of repayment of facilities of $0.8 million, and dividends paid of $1.5 million. The cash provided by financing activities during the second quarter of fiscal 2021 consisted of proceeds of $0.8 million from the issue of ordinary shares in relation to the exercise of stock options and $0.6 million from facilities utilized, offset by dividends paid of $1.3 million.

During the quarter, the South African Rand weakened against the U.S. Dollar from R14.32 at June 30, 2021 to R15.12 at September 30, 2021 and as a result, cash decreased by $1.1 million due to foreign exchange losses.

Quarterly Dividend

The most recent dividend payment of 4 South African cents (0.3 U.S. cents) per ordinary share and 1 South African Rand (7 U.S. cents) per ADS was paid on September 2, 2021 to shareholders on record on August 20, 2021. A dividend of 4 South African cents per ordinary share and 1 South African Rand per ADS will be paid on December 2, 2021 to shareholders on record as of the close of business on November 19, 2021.

Segment Information

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.

Each RSO’s results reflect the external revenue earned, as well as its performance before the remaining CSO and corporate costs allocations. Segment performance is measured and evaluated by the chief operating decision maker ("CODM") using Segment Adjusted EBITDA, which is a measure that uses net income excluding net interest income/(expense), foreign exchange gains or losses, operating lease expenses, stock-based compensation costs, restructuring costs, and gains or losses on the disposal or impairments of long-lived assets and subsidiaries. Product development costs are capitalized and amortized and this amortization is excluded from Segment Adjusted EBITDA.

The segment information provided to the CODM is as follows (in thousands and unaudited):

Description of reconciling items:

Annexure A: Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use certain measures to assess the financial performance of the business. Certain of these measures are termed "non-GAAP measures" because they exclude amounts that are included in, or include amounts that are excluded from, the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, or are calculated using financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures include Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, free cash flow and constant currency information.

An explanation of the relevance of each of the non-GAAP measures, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of their limitations is set out below. We do not regard these non-GAAP measures as a substitute for, or superior to, the equivalent measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP or those calculated using financial measures that are calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are two of the profit measures reviewed by the chief operating decision maker ("CODM"). We define Adjusted EBITDA as the income before income taxes, net interest income, net foreign exchange gains/(losses), depreciation of property and equipment including capitalized customer in-vehicle devices, amortization of intangible assets including capitalized internal-use software development costs and intangible assets identified as part of a business combination, stock-based compensation costs, restructuring costs and profits/(losses) on the disposal or impairments of assets or subsidiaries. We define Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.

We have 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 provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results.

A reconciliation of net income (the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP) to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods shown is presented below (in thousands and unaudited):

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered as performance measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

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, our 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;

  • other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure; and

  • certain of the adjustments (such as restructuring costs, impairment of long-lived assets and others) made in calculating Adjusted EBITDA are those that management believes are not representative of our underlying operations and, therefore, are subjective in nature.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin should be considered alongside other financial performance measures, including income from operations, net income and our other results.

Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share

Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income excluding net foreign exchange gains/(losses) net of tax.

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

The following tables (in thousands, except per share data, and unaudited) reconcile Net Income to Non-GAAP Net Income and Diluted Net Income Per Ordinary Share or ADS to Non-GAAP Net Income Per Ordinary Share or ADS for the periods shown:

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is determined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditure for investing activities. We believe that free cash flow provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s cash flows as it provides detail of the amount of cash the Company generates or utilizes after accounting for all capital expenditures including investments in in-vehicle devices.

Constant Currency

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

The constant currency information represents non-GAAP information. We believe this provides a useful basis to measure the performance of our business as it removes distortion from the effects of foreign currency movements during the period.

Due to the significant portion of our customers who are invoiced in non-U.S. Dollar denominated currencies, we also calculate our subscription revenue growth rate on a constant currency basis, thereby removing the effect of currency fluctuation on our results of operations.

The following tables (in thousands, except year over year change) provide the unaudited constant currency reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure for the periods shown:
