AGM Statement & Trading Update

 

Trakm8, a leading telematics and data supplier to global markets, is today holding its Annual General Meeting at 10:30 a.m. at the offices of Buchanan, 107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN. Executive Chairman John Watkins will make the following statement on current trading at the meeting.

 

"The Board is pleased to report that the outlook for the year ending 31 March 2019 is in line with market expectations, with an improved financial performance driven by continued growth in the telematics business more than offsetting the eliminated CEM activities.

 

Trakm8 reports that trading in the first five months of the current financial year commencing 1 April 2018 has been, as previously advised, behind that of the same period last year. The decline is largely due to both the elimination of £1.6m CEM work undertaken during this period last year and the working down of the launch stocks by one of our significant customers. Fleet connections have continued to increase satisfactorily, however at one of our significant insurance customers, telematics policy cancellations have modestly exceeded new policy sales.

 

The second half of the year will benefit from resumption of volume shipments to the significant customer referenced above and increased momentum in the fleet management market.  The Directors are also confident that new contracts to be awarded, particularly in the insurance space, will drive additional revenues in the second half of the year.

 

The Group will report its half year results as usual in early December."

 

Investors Event

 

Following the AGM, from 11.00am to 13.00pm at the offices of Buchanan, the Company will hold an event for analysts and investors at which private investors are welcome to attend. No new material financial information will be disclosed in the presentations. A videocast of the meeting will subsequently be available on the Group's IR website.
