Proven track record of profitability and strong financial metrics
Cartrack has a proven track record since inception. This is demonstrated by Cartrack having achieved an average compound annual growth rate in revenue and net profit after tax for the period 2012 to 2015 of 23.5% and 23% respectively. Revenue is generated predominantly through annuity income from a diverse client base with a very low concentration level from any single client – 0.5% of revenue is generated from our largest client.
Cartrack is a leader in the industry in terms of gross profit, EBITDA and PBT margins, being 79.3%, 43.9% and 35.9% respectively.
Cartrack believes that its strong margins provide the Company with flexibility and resilience for durable revenue growth should the competitive pricing scenario become more aggressive.
History of strong cash flow generation and cash conversion with low financial leverage and strong dividends
Cartrack’s margins, coupled with low capital expenditure requirements, ensures high levels of cash conversion which has consistently been approximately 80% over the last two-year period. The strong cash flow generation and conversion, positions Cartrack for strong, sustainable growth with a healthy dividend policy.
Cartrack’s capital discipline is demonstrated by its working capital efficiency, which is effectively managed through its receivables that are historically, on average, lower than one month of turnover for the Group.
Furthermore, Cartrack does not have any material third party debt on its balance sheet providing it with the ability to leverage opportunities that may arise.
Platform for growth
Cartrack has well established businesses, both locally and internationally, and a growing footprint in selected African, Asian and European countries. The Company is well-positioned to take advantage of the vastly underdeveloped SaaS market in these territories and to enter new high growth markets.
Pivotal to Cartrack’s expansion strategy is a well-defined and tested expansion model with low initial set-up costs and a hands-on approach from management.
In the four-year period ended February 2015, the Cartrack subscriber base has seen a 105% increase. This growth comprises of a 196% increase in Fleet Management subscribers and a 35% increase in Stolen Vehicle Recovery subscribers. Off the back of this growth, as at February 2015, Fleet Management accounts for more than 50% of Cartrack’s subscriber base.
Favourable industry dynamics
Telematics service and product demand is a direct by-product of the size of the global vehicle fleets (including both commercial and passenger vehicles). With the size of the global vehicle fleet currently estimated at 1.1 billion vehicles and forecasted to grow to 2.3 billion vehicles by the year 2035, Cartrack is ideally positioned in a burgeoning industry.
The uptake in SaaS is forecast to be even more pronounced with the global commercial telematic subscriptions in 2019 set to treble from current levels.
The Fleet Management industry is mindful of the need to reduce costs, enhance efficiencies and margins and improve driver behaviour and road safety. Actionable data intelligence is rapidly evolving as a result of the ease of accessibility and the market demand is expected to rapidly increase.
