EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

 

Results

FY-2019 was a disappointing year in terms of financial results.  We failed to meet our revenue, profit and cash generation expectations due to a number of sales related events.  Our largest customer had a significant reduction in market share in the young driver insurance market reducing revenues and installed base. We had expected reductions due to lower prices at the customer when the contract had been renewed early in the year but this only compounded the loss of the reduced volume. We had expected that volume from new insurances customers would have made a material difference to the second half of the financial year, but delays in their programmes significantly hit our revenues. The delays in programme launch of the connected car proposition by breakdown companies was unexpected and substantially impacted revenues particularly in the second half. The Fleet Management sales team simply failed to win enough business to meet our expectations. Political and economic uncertainty certainly played their part, and the effect of US sanctions on Iran impacted a multi-million-pound contract for the supply of Insurance solutions into Iran. Change was needed and the replacement with new resources started to make a significant difference in the final quarter of the year but it was too little, too late.

The revenues of the business fell by 35% and the Group posted an adjusted loss before tax of £1.5m. Connections fell by 3% to 243,000. The total fleet management connections increased by 4% over the year to 76,000 (FY-2018: 73,000). Telematics for insurance/automotive connections for the reasons explained above reduced. At the year-end we had 167,000 insurance/automotive connections (FY-2018: 178,000), which is a reduction of 6%.   Recurring service revenues reduced by 7% to £10.1m (FY-2018: £10.8 m).

However, FY-2019 was a year of excellent progress in many internally focussed activities. The Group continued to focus on operations, fully consolidating the acquisitions from earlier years of Roadsense and Routemonkey. Engineering solutions improved considerably, maintaining the market leading technology we have. Efficiency improvements in many aspects of our operations reduced direct and indirect costs. During the year we secured the services of a number of highly talented and experienced sales staff for our Fleet Management sales team, and as the year progressed their contribution started to make a difference.

The investment in engineering resources, whilst some £0.5m less than the previous year, has continued to deliver market-leading software and hardware solutions. Trakm8's Insight platform provides superb customer experience and data, enabling vehicle operators to significantly improve operational efficiencies and reduction in risk. The RoadHawk 600 integrated telematics and camera product is the first in the UK using 4G technology and has been implemented by large and small enterprises. A technical challenge with the product lead us to implement a product update and replacement in the field of a large number of units, which addressed the field issue and has enabled EU deployment. Presently, almost 5,000 units are deployed. A further generation of the self-fit telematics devices has been introduced.

We have continued to invest in our software solutions, algorithms and devices, ensuring that Trakm8 retains market-leading solutions with the widest and deepest offer in the market today.

Post-year end, we have announced contracts with two additional insurance companies.

 

 

 

Research and development ('R&D')

Trakm8 has maintained a significant level of investment in R&D although slightly below the level of the previous year. The Board believes that this level of investment is necessary to retain a portfolio of market-leading technology. Trakm8 continues to focus on owning the intellectual property ('IP') we use in our solutions, and we see this as one of our key competitive advantages. Telematics systems are complex; but because we own all the elements that encompass a solution (with the exception of the mobile networks) we have the ability to understand and resolve problems more easily than our competitors.

The R&D investment has concentrated on building out the latest self-fit device, the improved camera, algorithms for crash and risk, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and optimisation, and the capability of the Insight platform to provide best-in-class data analytics. As identified in previous years, the requirement to do more for less cost remains a key strategy as this widens the opportunity to expand the rate of growth as the ROI for our customers improves.

Governance

Of the two widely recognised formal corporate governance codes, we adopted the Quoted Companies Alliance's (QCA) Corporate Governance Code for small and mid-size quoted companies, which the Board considers the most appropriate for the size and structure of the Group. More information can be found in the Governance Report section of this report and our website.

Please see https://www.trakm8.com/investor-relations/corporate-governance for our full compliance statement.

Dividend

The Group does not propose to recommend a dividend for the year at the forthcoming AGM.  However, the Board will continue to review its dividend policy in light of future results and investment requirements.

People

The number of people Trakm8 employs has reduced slightly during FY-2019 as reductions in operational headcount were partially offset by increases in our sales and marketing teams. In total our staff numbers have reduced by 8% over the year.

In a year when the business did not perform to expectations, the teams had to devote themselves even more diligently to the cause.  We have an exceptional team and I would like to thank everyone for their hard work, dedication and contribution to the ongoing success of the business.

 

 

 

Outlook

We continue to drive efficiencies and maintain product enhancements, and we are aiming to focus on a smaller number of activities and execute them much better. The bulk of the available resource and energy is focused on marketing and selling.

Our Fleet sales team's performance is continuing to improve, securing a higher value of contracts than the corresponding period last year with this momentum expected to continue. This and the new contract awards from two further insurance companies is expected to deliver growth in the first half of this financial year compared to the first half last year. 

The AA Smart Breakdown launch and the two major new insurance contract wins are expected to provide a lift to revenues in the second half of the financial year. As many Fleet deals take some time to deploy the good recent progress in contract wins will impact the second half more than the first half, so this too makes the expected trading performance of the group to be more significantly second half loaded than ideal.

Trading to date confirm the realisation of operational and efficiency cost savings of £2.0m that were actioned in the prior financial year.

Given the disappointing failure to predict the outcome last year, it is prudent to be tempered in our outlook but current market expectations are for a relatively modest recovery (low double digit growth) in our revenues and very modest adjusted profitability for the financial year as a whole. The Board is confident that this will be achieved.

Revenue

Group revenue decreased by 35% to £19.1m (FY-2018: £29.4m), this was due to Product revenues which decreased from £3.3m to £nil following the planned exit from CEM activities.  All sub-contract electronic manufacturing activities had ceased by end of 2018 financial year.  Additionally Solutions revenue reduced by 27% to    £19.1m (FY-2018: £26.1m) due to a significant reduction in market share in the young driver market at our largest customer, delays from new insurance customers and delays in the launch of the connected car proposition by breakdown companies.  Additionally new business sales in the Fleet Management part of our business failed to meet our expectations.  Recurring revenue generated from service and maintenance fees decreased by 7% to £10.1m (FY-2018: £10.8m) due to the reduction in Connections and lower prices in our largest customer contract.   

(Loss)/ Profit before tax

The Group reported a loss before tax of £3.6m (FY-2018: Profit £0.5m).  This deterioration in profitability was due to the decline in revenue, which was delivered at slightly improved gross margins (due to change in mix) resulting in a £3.9m decline in gross profit.  Additionally other income decreased by £0.1m, non-recurring exceptional costs increased by £0.5m (as detailed below) and £0.4m increase in depreciation and amortisation, primarily from capitalised development costs, reflecting the significant investment undertaken by the group in earlier years.  These were offset by other overheads decreasing by £0.9m which reflects the cost saving initiatives we have put in place. 

Adjusted (Loss)/ Profit before tax

The disappointing trading performance resulted in adjusted profit before tax decreasing to a loss of £1.5m (FY-2018: Profit £2.1m).  The £3.9m reduction in gross profit converted into adjusted profit before tax, with administrative costs excluding exceptional costs, depreciation and amortisation down £0.8m on prior year offset by £0.4m increase in depreciation and amortisation and a £0.1m reduction in other income.   During the year the company has increased its investment in sales and marketing with headcount increasing by 7%, however overall costs remained flat due to a reduction in commission due to the poor performance.  Overhead savings resulted from reduction in expensed R&D spend of £0.5m and a reduction in other overheads of £0.3m as a result on ongoing efficiency savings.

 

 

Exceptional Costs

Exceptional costs total £1.9m (FY-2018: £1.4m) include integration and restructuring costs relating to prior year acquisitions and additional costs relating to the acquisition of Roadsense Technology Limited.  Additionally, significant product component refit costs were incurred on a recently launched product, these issues have been fixed by year end.  The Group also rolled out an enhanced hardware product to two existing customers following a product upgrade to drive increases in market opportunity.  Also, the Group provided for the cost of work and solutions supplied in the prior year under a contract to supply insurance solutions to Iran.

Net Assets increased by £0.7m to £22.1m (FY-2018: £21.4m) reflecting the £3.0m subscription during the financial year, offset by the loss for the year. 

Non-current assets increased by £1.2m to £22.7m (FY-2018: £21.5m).  This is due to the continued investment in development in both software and hardware with capitalised development costs in the year totaling £3.4m (FY-2018: £3.4m), offset by a £0.4m increase in amortisation to £1.5m (FY-2018: £1.1m).  The balance of the movement relates to the sale of the freehold property, reduction in the receivable due on assets leased out and amortisation of other intangible assets.

3 Total borrowings less cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash from operating activities decreased in the year to an outflow of £1.8m (FY-2018: £4.7m inflow), which included R&D tax credit cash receipts of £1.0m (FY-2018: £1.6m).  The R&D tax credit cash receipt reflects the Group's investment in development.  The operational cash outflow is reflective of the reported loss and change in working capital. 

Free cash outflow of £4.9m (FY-2018: inflow £1.0m) is due to the decline in trading, with cash outflows from investing activities reducing by £0.5m to £3.2m (FY-2018: £3.7m).   Reduction in cash outflow from investing activities was due to the sale and leaseback of the Shaftesbury property that was completed in February 2019.

 

 

Financing activities generated £2.7m (FY-2018: £0.5m) due to the subscription in December which raised approximately £3.0m (net of expenses) to fund general working capital requirements and further strengthen the Group's balance sheet, which was offset by debt repayments of £0.4m.

Net Debt 

Net debt increased by £2.3m to £5.6m (FY-2018: £3.3m).  Cash balances total £1.2m (FY-2018: £3.5m) and total borrowings £6.8m (FY-2018: £6.8m) of which £1.8m (FY-2018: £2.8m) was a term loan with HSBC, £4.4m (FY-2018: £3.4m) were amounts drawn under our £5m revolving credit facility with HSBC and £0.6m (FY-2018: £0.5m) were obligations under finance leases.

 GENERAL INFORMATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trakm8 Holdings PLC ("Company") and its subsidiaries (together the "Group") manufacture, distribute and sell telematics devices and services.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trakm8 Holdings PLC is a public limited company incorporated in the United Kingdom (registration number 05452547). The Company is domiciled in the United Kingdom and its registered office address is 4 Roman Park, Roman Way, Coleshill, West Midlands, B46 1HG. The Company's Ordinary shares are traded on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange. The Company is registered in England and is limited by shares.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group's principal activity is the development, manufacture, marketing and distribution of vehicle telematics equipment and services. The Company's principal activity is to act as a holding company for its subsidiaries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in Sterling and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand (£'000) except where otherwise indicated.

AUTHORISATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE WITH IFRS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Group's financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and IFRS Interpretations Committee ("IFRS IC") interpretations as endorsed by the European Union, and with those parts of the Companies Act 2006 applicable to companies reporting under IFRS.

BASIS OF PREPARATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These financial statements are presented on a going concern basis.  To monitor the future cash position the Group produces projections of its working capital and long term funding requirements covering three months in detail and 1 and 2 year future projections on a monthly basis.  These projections are updated on a regular basis and progress against the projections is closely monitored by the Board and the finance team.  The projections include assessments against the covenants agreed with our bank.  On 27 June 2019 the Group entered into an Amendment and Restatement Agreement with HSBC that amended the covenants on both the term loan and revolving credit facility, following the waiver of existing covenants during the year.  The recently agreed covenants relate to cashflow cover, EBITDA and leverage.  At the year end the Group had cash balances of £1,205,000 and undrawn revolving credit facilities of £650,000 at 31 March 2019.  The projections for twelve months from date of signing the financial statements show that the Group has sufficient cash resources and will meet its covenants with ample headroom for the foreseeable future.  The Group has undertaken a number of adverse sensitivities against its projections, these show that we would still have cash reserves in all these scenarios and would meet our covenants.  This sensitivity analysis showed that if either a 32% reduction in Adjusted EBITDA, or a 50% reduction in net cashflow from operating activities for the full financial year materialised that covenants would still be met.  On this basis the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group will have adequate financial resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The chief operating decision maker ("CODM") is identified as the Board. It continues to define all the Group's trading under the single Integrated Telematics Technology segment and therefore review the results of the group as a whole.  Consequently all of the Group's revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities are in respect of one Integrated Telematics Technology segment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Board as the CODM review the revenue streams of Integrated Fleet, Optimisation, Insurance and Automotive Solutions (Solutions) and Hardware as Discrete Devices (Products) as part of their internal reporting.  Products is the sale of Contract Electronic Manufacturing services (now ceased) and other third party hardware only supply. Solutions represents the sale of the Group's full vehicle telematics and optimisation services, engineering services, professional services and mapping solutions to customers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A breakdown of revenues within these streams are as follows:

The acquisition costs incurred in 2019 and 2018 relate to non-underlying charges under two separate agreements linked to the acquisition in 2017.  The costs incurred are directly linked to the acquisition and not as part of the underlying business.  One agreement terminates on 31 July 2019, and the second agreement terminated on 31 March 2019.

The Company has incurred significant costs relating to its ongoing project to streamline and rationalise the operations of the business.  This has resulted in the following non-underlying, one-off costs:
- In the current and prior year, integration and restructuring costs incurred relate to integrating the   activities of Route Monkey Limited, Roadsense Limited and DCS Systems that were acquired in previous   financial years and include costs associated with office closures and costs and profits incurred as part of   its long-term real estate plan.
- Head Office relocation costs in the prior year are non-underlying costs incurred in moving the Head Office and associated administrative functions from Shaftesbury to the West Midlands.
- Contract manufacturing closure costs in the prior year relate to residual inventory costs and contract exit costs following cessation of manufacturing contracts with third parties.

The Company has also incurred the following exceptional in the current financial year:
- In the current year product component refit costs incurred relate to significant component and software issues that arose during the financial year on a recently launched product.  These issues have been fixed by year-end.  However significant re-visit and material costs have been incurred as a result of the project to remedy these issues.  No customers have been lost as a result of these issues.

- In the current year communication correction costs incurred relate to an intermittent fault uncovered with one of our communication elements during our joint extended testing.  This resulted in a reduction in signal strength as the component searched for the supplier's network signal, rather than the strongest signal available.    This affected two customers.  We upgraded the product with an alternative which now provides much enhanced roaming capability across Europe.  The enhanced signal will also enable us to deliver a wider range of products.  The customers have subsequently ordered further devices from the Group.

- In the current year, it was considered inappropriate to proceed with a contract to supply insurance solutions into Iran due to the impact of US sanctions, therefore the cost of the work and solutions supplied in the previous financial year have been provided for.

Goodwill arose in relation to the Group's acquisition of 100% of the share capital of Roadsense Technology Limited (Roadsense), Route Monkey Limited (Route Monkey), Box Telematics Limited (Box) and DCS Systems Limited (DCS).

 

 

 

 

 

Since the acquisition Roadsense, Box, Route Monkey and DCS have been incorporated into the Trakm8 business. These businesses have therefore been assessed as one cash generating unit for an impairment test on Goodwill.

 

The impairment review has been performed using a value in use calculation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The impairment review has been based on the Group's budgets for 2019/20 which have been reviewed and approved by the Board.  Forecasts for the subsequent 4 years have been produced based on 7% (a prudent growth rate for telematics market) growth rates in revenue and EBITDA in each year.  A net present value has been calculated using a pre-tax discount rate of 10% (Group's weighted average cost of capital) which is deemed to be a reasonable rate taking account of the Group's cost of funds and an extra element for risk.  A terminal value has been calculated and included in the discounted cash flow forecasts used within the model to fully support the goodwill value. A growth rate of 2% was used to determine the terminal value.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition a sensitivity analysis has been undertaken and indicates that an impairment will be triggered by making the following combined changes to the assumptions:

 

1.     Decrease in annual growth rates to 6.5% per annum for five years (terminal growth rate of 2%)

 

2.     Increase in the discount rate to 11%

 

3.     Decrease in 2020 free cash flow of 50%

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amortisation expenses of £1,866,000 (2018: £1,484,000) have been charged to Administrative expenses in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income.

CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This note explains the impact of the adoption of IFRS15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers on the group's financial statements and also discloses the new accounting policies that have been applied from 1 April 2018, where they are different to those in prior period.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impact on the financial statements:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a result of the changes in the entity's accounting policies, prior year financial statements had to be restated. As explained in note 4 above, IFRS 15 was adopted with restated comparative information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The following table shows the adjustments recognised for each of the individual line item. Line items that were not affected by the changes have not been included. As a result, the sub-totals and the totals disclosed cannot be recalculated from the numbers provided. The adjustments are explained in more detail below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The group has adopted IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers from 1 April 2018 which resulted in changes in accounting policies and adjustments to the amounts recognised in the financial statements. In accordance with the transition provision in IFRS 15, the group has adopted the new rules retrospectively and has restated comparatives for the 2017 financial year. In summary, the following adjustments were made to the amounts recognised in the balance sheet at the date of initial application (1 April 2018):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The benefit to the results for the twelve months to 31 March 2019 from the prior year restatement following the adoption of IFRS 15 is not material.
