MiX Telematics Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2022 U.S. GAAP Financial Results

Feb 3, 2022

Third Quarter Highlights: Subscription revenues of $30.3 million Net subscriber additions of 20,300, bringing the total base to over 790,500 subscribers Net income of $0.6 million Adjusted EBITDA of $7.1 million, at a 19.6% margin Cash and cash equivalents of $35.9 million at quarter end February 03, 2022 06:05 AM Eastern Standard Time MIDRAND, South Africa & BOCA RATON, Fla.--( 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 third quarter of fiscal 2022, which ended December 31, 2021. “MiX’s third quarter performance reflected an improved demand environment, particularly for enterprise opportunities. We added 20,300 subscribers in the quarter, our best performance since before the pandemic,” said Stefan Joselowitz, Chief Executive Officer of MiX Telematics. Joselowitz continued, “Now that we have returned to sustainable revenue growth, we are increasingly optimistic about our ability, over the longer-term, to deliver our stated growth and profitability targets.” Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2021 Subscription Revenues: Subscription revenues were $30.3 million, an increase of 4.3% compared to $29.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Subscription revenues represented 83.7% of total revenues during the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Subscription revenues increased by 3.5% on a constant currency basis, year over year. During the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company’s subscriber base grew by a net 20,300 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 third quarter of fiscal 2021, the South African Rand strengthened by 1% against the U.S. Dollar. The Rand/U.S. Dollar exchange rate averaged R15.42 in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to an average of R15.65 during the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The impact of translating foreign currencies to U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates during the third quarter of fiscal 2022 led to a 0.8% increase in reported U.S. Dollar subscription revenues. Total Revenues: Total revenues were $36.2 million, an increase of 6.2% compared to $34.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Total revenues increased by 5.0% on a constant currency basis, year over year. Hardware and other revenues were $5.9 million, an increase of 17.0%, compared to $5.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The impact of translating foreign currencies to U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates during the third quarter of fiscal 2022 led to a 1.2% increase in reported U.S. Dollar revenues. Gross Margin: Gross profit was $22.5 million, compared to $21.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Gross profit margin was 62.0%, compared to 62.5% for the third 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 third quarter of fiscal 2022 was 70.8%. Income From Operations: Income from operations was $2.6 million, compared to $5.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating income margin was 7.1%, compared to 14.8% for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Operating expenses of $19.9 million increased by $3.6 million, or 22.1%, compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Net Income and Earnings Per Share: Net income was $0.6 million, compared to net income of $5.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. During the third quarter of fiscal 2022, net income included a net foreign exchange gain of $0.1 million before tax, as well as a $1.1 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 third quarter of fiscal 2021, net income included a net foreign exchange loss of $0.1 million before tax and a $2.7 million deferred tax credit on a U.S. Dollar intercompany loan between MiX Telematics and MiX Investments. Earnings per diluted ordinary share was 0.1 U.S. cents, compared to 1.1 U.S. cents in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. For the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the calculation was based on diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue of 564.6 million compared to 559.8 million diluted weighted average ordinary shares in issue during the third quarter of fiscal 2021. On a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one American Depositary Share (“ADS”), earnings per diluted ADS were 3 U.S. cents compared to 26 U.S. cents in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company’s effective tax rate was 76.0%, compared to negative 18.7% in the third 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 35.5% compared to 34.3% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $7.1 million, compared to $9.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-GAAP measure, for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was 19.6%, compared to 28.0% for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share: Non-GAAP net income was $1.6 million, compared to $3.4 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP net income per diluted ordinary share was 0.3 U.S. cents, compared to 0.6 U.S. cents in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. At a ratio of 25 ordinary shares to one ADS, the non-GAAP net income per diluted ADS was 7 U.S. cents compared to 15 U.S. cents in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Cash and Cash Equivalents and Cash Flow: At December 31, 2021, the Company had $35.9 million of cash and cash equivalents, compared to $45.5 million at March 31, 2021. Net cash provided by operating activities for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $4.0 million compared to $10.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The Company invested $5.5 million in capital expenditures (including investments in in-vehicle devices of $3.7 million), leading to negative free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, of $1.5 million in the quarter. The Company generated free cash flow of $8.7 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 when the Company invested $1.5 million in capital expenditures (including investments in in-vehicle devices of $0.4 million). Net cash used in financing activities amounted to $2.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to $1.7 million used during the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The cash used in financing activities during the third quarter of fiscal 2022 mainly consisted of ordinary shares repurchased of $0.8 million and dividends paid of $1.4 million, offset by facilities utilized of $0.2 million. The cash used in financing activities during the third quarter of fiscal 2021 consisted of dividends paid of $1.4 million and $0.3 million from a reduction in facilities utilized. During the quarter, the South African Rand weakened against the U.S. Dollar from R15.12 at September 30, 2021 to R15.95 at December 31, 2021 and as a result, cash decreased by $0.4 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 (6 U.S. cents) per ADS was paid on December 2, 2021 to shareholders on record on November 19, 2021. A dividend of 4 South African cents per ordinary share and 1 South African Rand per ADS will be paid on March 3, 2022 to shareholders on record as of the close of business on February 18, 2022. The details with respect to the dividends declared for holders of our ADSs are as follows: Ex dividend on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Thursday, February 17, 2022 Share Repurchases In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company repurchased 1,567,791 ordinary shares on the open market at prevailing market prices, for a total consideration of $0.8 million. Business Outlook Due to the uncertainty surrounding the level of business disruption as a result of the spread of COVID-19, the Company has suspended its practice of issuing financial guidance and as a consequence no guidance has been issued for the full 2022 fiscal year.

We assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this press release and expressly disclaim any obligation to do so, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release and the accompanying tables include references to Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share, free cash flow and constant currency, which are non-GAAP financial measures. For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures, including the reasons management uses these measures, please see Annexure A titled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP is provided in Annexure A. 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 income before income tax expense excluding net interest income/(expense), foreign exchange gains or losses, depreciation, amortization, operating lease expenses, stock-based compensation costs, restructuring costs, non-recurring legal costs, gains or losses on the disposal or impairments of long-lived assets and subsidiaries and corporate and consolidation entries. 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):   1. For the purposes of calculating Segment Adjusted EBITDA, operating lease expenses are excluded from the Segment Adjusted EBITDA. Therefore, in order to reconcile Segment Adjusted EBITDA to income before income tax expense, the total lease expense in respect of operating leases needs to be deducted. 2. For segment reporting purposes, product development costs, which do not meet the capitalization requirements under ASC 730 Research and Development or under ASC 985 Software, are capitalized and amortized. The amortization is excluded from Segment Adjusted EBITDA. In order to reconcile Segment Adjusted EBITDA to income before income tax expense, product development costs capitalized for segment reporting purposes need to be deducted. 3. For the nine months ended December 31, 2020, $0.6 million, $0.2 million, $0.1 million and $0.1 million of the restructuring costs related to CSO, Africa, North America and Middle East and Australasia reporting segments, respectively. 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/(expense), 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, non-recurring legal 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):   2. Includes amortization of intangible assets (including intangible assets identified as part of a business combination). 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:   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: Subscription Revenue:
