Notes to Editors

Trakm8 is a UK based technology leader in fleet management, insurance telematics, connected car, and optimisation. Through IP owned technology, the Group uses AI data analytics collected from its installed base of telematics units to fine tune the algorithms that are used to produce its' solutions; these monitor driver behaviour, identify crash events and monitor vehicle health to provide actionable insights to continuously improve the security and operational efficiency of both company fleets and private drivers.

The Group's product portfolio includes the latest data analytics and reporting portal (Trakm8 Insight), integrated telematics/cameras/optimisation, self-installed telematics units and one of the widest ranges of installed telematics devices. Trakm8 has over 264,000 connections.

Headquartered in Coleshill near Birmingham alongside its manufacturing facility, the Group supplies to the Fleet, Optimisation, Insurance and Automotive sectors to many well-known customers in the UK and internationally including the AA, Saint Gobain, EON, Iceland Foods, GSF, Direct Line Group, Ticker and Ingenie.

Trakm8 has been listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange since 2005. Trakm8 is also recognised with the LSE Green Economy Mark / @Trakm8



Covid-19 continued to impact the market for telematics, particularly in our Insurance business where young drivers were unable to secure driving tests compounded by the scarcity and higher costs of second hand cars. It also led to significant challenges in the supply of electronic components for our devices. Trakm8 managed its way through most of this and achieved a very significant improvement on the previous year delivering results in line with market expectations, returning to a profit after tax for the first time in several years.

The revenues of the business increased by 13% and despite higher costs due to lower furlough support and supply chain challenges posted an adjusted profit before tax of GBP0.0m (FY-2021: loss GBP0.3m). Loss before tax improved to GBP0.1m (FY-2021: loss GBP1.9m) and Profit after Tax improved to GBP0.2m (FY-2021: loss GBP1.2m).

Connections grew by 4% to 264,000. The total number of fleet management connections increased by 1% over the year to 71,000 (FY-2021: 70,000). Telematics for insurance/automotive connections increased by 5%. At the year-end we had 193,000 insurance/automotive connections (FY-2021: 184,000). Recurring service revenues increased by 5% to GBP9.8m (FY-2021: GBP9.4m). Software revenues increased by 150% to GBP1.4m (FY-2021: GBP0.5m). A good number of contract wins and renewals were secured particularly with the insurance clients.

It was pleasing to have strong cash generation of the business with a cash flow from operations of GBP3.8m (FY-2021: GBP4.7m). The Company paid down GBP0.9m of HMRC deferred payments on VAT/PAYE/NI, with the balance of GBP0.9m to be paid during this financial year. This resulted in a free cash flow of GBP0.6m (FY-2021: GBP2.0m) and net debt increased by GBP0.5m at GBP5.4m (pre-IFRS 16). The Group had GBP1.0m cash on hand and an undrawn overdraft facility of GBP0.5m.

Overheads excluding exceptionals increased by 6% due to a reduction of furloughed staff along with an increased marketing spend. Headcount reduced by 5% during the year with underlying salary costs 5% lower than at the end of the previous year.

Trakm8 was awarded the London Stock Exchange Green Economy Mark during the year in recognition that what the Company does plays a significant role in reducing the carbon footprint of our customers' operations. Trakm8 has also started the process of joining the Science Based Targets initiative in the goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050.

Research and development ('R&D')

Trakm8 has maintained a significant level of investment in R&D for another year. The Board believes that this level of investment is necessary to retain a portfolio of market-leading technology. Over time as revenues grow we expect that this investment as a proportion of revenues will decline. 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 the development of self-fit devices, a multi-camera solution, development of the feature set in Insight, and further development of our Insurance Broker platform. 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 our customers' return on investment improves.


The Group has 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 ( ) .


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.


The number of people Trakm8 employs has reduced further during FY-2022 with reductions across the business. In total our staff numbers have reduced by 5% over the year.

Trakm8 has a great team and I would like to thank everyone for their hard work, dedication and contribution to the ongoing success of the business.


We start the new financial year with the ongoing supply chain challenges impacting our costs and our development progress. A significant amount of our engineering resources are devoted to redesigning current devices to meet component changes.

Currently Insurance & Automotive devices supplied to end of May 2022 amount to 60% more than the corresponding period last year due to the increased number of new clients secured. Fleet deliveries have been reasonably good with new unit shipments 38% greater than the corresponding period last year.

These shipments whilst increasing revenues for devices and where applicable installation in the short term, also drive increased levels of service revenues and profit for future periods.

April and May revenues were 11% higher than the corresponding period in FY 2022.

Like many businesses, Trakm8 is having to continue to face challenges in a number of areas in particular, component supply availability and logistics which have the potential to lead to shortages that could impact customer product deliveries. In addition, salary and component inflationary pressures are prevalent. However, the board is taking action to minimise the impact of these challenges on the Trakm8 business through, for example, reduced headcount, higher selling prices and engineered cost reductions.

On a much more positive note, we are seeing strong growth in the Insurance business due, in particular, to new customer wins. In addition, we are optimistic about securing a number of Fleet deployment contract renewals during the remainder of this year.

It is against this business generation backdrop that the Board believes Trakm8 is building increasing momentum and is hopeful that this can be transformed into improved financial returns as we move forward.

(1) Before exceptional costs and share based payments


Group revenue increased by 13% to GBP18.1m (FY-2021: GBP16.0m) as the impact of Covid-19 reduced. Fleet revenues increased by 18% to GBP11.2m and Insurance and Automotive revenues increased by 7% to GBP6.9m. Despite the majority of Covid-19 lockdown measures ending early in the financial year, Insurance revenues recovered much slower than anticipated due to the well publicised driving test delays and second hand car price inflation and availability but offset by shipments to new customers in the final quarter. This was complimented by increased levels of Fleet and Optimisation orders including strong software revenues in H1. Recurring revenue generated from service and maintenance fees increased by 5% to GBP9.8m (FY-2021: GBP9.4m) due to the higher levels of shipments of devices across both business units and implementation of optimisation services.

Loss before tax

The Group reported a loss before tax of GBP0.1m (FY-2021: GBP1.9m). This marked significant progress as increased revenues delivered gross margins of GBP11.1m (FY-2021: GBP9.3m). Total administrative costs remained broadly similar at GBP10.8m despite the increased levels of revenue. This included an increase in marketing spend of GBP0.1m to aid revenue growth, a reduction of Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme income to GBP0.19m (FY-2021: GBP0.94m) and an increase in depreciation and amortisation of GBP0.2m. This was offset by overall reduction in employee costs of GBP0.38m and a reduction in share-based payments of GBP0.6m compared to the prior year.

Adjusted Profit before tax

With the improved revenues and gross margins, the Group returned to profitability with an adjusted profit of GBP0.0m (FY-2021: GBP0.3m loss). The improved revenue performance was offset by increased employee costs as the furloughed staff costs decreased to GBP0.4m (FY-2021: GBP1.6m) along with increases in depreciation and amortisation, marketing costs and a reduction in Other Income of GBP0.2m, GBP0.1m and GBP0.2m respectively. Our continued efforts in efficiency savings improved underlying overheads including a reduction in employee costs of GBP0.3m to offset the cost increases.

Exceptional Costs

Exceptional costs totalled GBP0.6m (FY-2021: GBP1.3m) and again primarily include one off costs relating to Covid-19 albeit greatly reduced from the prior year. This included GBP0.4m of employee costs whilst on furlough in the first half of the year and GBP0.2m of component costs due to the ongoing supply chain challenges instigated by Covid-19 both here and abroad. This was offset by GBP0.2m received as part of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. In addition, GBP0.1m was incurred in our ongoing project to streamline our internal operations.

                           --------  -------- 

Net Assets decreased by GBP0.2m to GBP19.9m (FY-2021: GBP20.1m) reflecting the profit for the year, after deducting the IFRS2 Share based payments credits.

Non-current assets increased by GBP0.2m to GBP25.9m (FY-2021: GBP25.6m). This is due to a GBP0.5m reduction in right of use assets due to depreciation offset by a GBP0.8m increase in Intangible assets and GBP0.1m decrease in Property, plant and equipment. Intangible assets increased due to the continued investment in development in both software and hardware with capitalised development costs in the year totaling GBP2.9m (FY-2021: GBP2.3m), offset by amortisation of GBP1.9m (FY-2021: GBP1.7m).

(1) Cash generated from operating activities less cash used in investing activities (excluding cash flows related to acquisitions)

(2) Total borrowings less cash and cash equivalents. FY-2022 net debt excludes GBP1.6m IFRS 16 lease liability.

Cash from operating activities reduced by GBP0.9m to GBP3.8m (FY-2021: GBP4.7m) which included the repayment of GBP0.9m to HMRC under the time to pay agreement negotiated at the end of the last financial year. FY-2021 included the deferment of payments to HMRC which increased Cash from operating activities by GBP1.7m. Cash from operating activities also included R&D tax credit cash receipts of GBP0.7m (FY-2021: GBP0.9m) which reflects the Group's continued investment in development.

Free cash inflow of GBP0.6m (FY-2021: GBP2.0m) is due to the Net Cash generated from operating activities as detailed above, offset by cash outflows from investing activities which increased by GBP0.6m to GBP3.3m (FY-2021: GBP2.7m).

Financing activities was an outflow of GBP1.9m (FY-2021: GBP1.3m). Following the negotiation of new and revised terms for the Group's borrowings in March 2021, capital repayments to both HSBC and the MEIF WM Debt LP resumed in the second half of the year totalling GBP0.7m (FY2021: GBP0.1m).

Net Debt

Net debt excluding IFRS 16 lease liability of GBP1.6m (FY-2021 GBP1.9m) increased by GBP0.5m to GBP5.4m (FY-2021: GBP4.9m). Cash balances total GBP1.0m (FY-2021: GBP2.4m) and total borrowings including IFRS16 lease liability of GBP1.6m totals GBP7.9m (FY-2021: GBP9.1m). Borrowing comprised GBP4.9m (FY-2021: GBP5.3m) term loan with HSBC, a GBP1.2m (FY-2021: GBP1.5m) term loan with MEIF WM Debt LP and GBP2.0m (FY-2021: GBP2.4m) of obligations under Right-to-use lease liabilities. In addition, at the year end the Group had a GBP0.5m unused overdraft facility with HSBC.

      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 and optimisation solutions. The Company's principal 
      activity is to act as a holding company for its subsidiaries. 
     The consolidated financial statements are presented in Sterling 
      and all values are rounded to the nearest thousand (GBP'000) 
      except where otherwise indicated. 
      WITH IFRS 
     The Group's financial statements have been prepared in accordance 
     with UK-adopted 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. 
     The audited financial information included in this preliminary 
      results announcement for the year ended 31 March 2022 and audited 
      information for the year ended 31 March 2021 does not comprise 
      statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 Companies 
      Act 2006. The information has been extracted from the audited 
      statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2022 
      which will be delivered to the Registrar of Companies in due 
      course. Statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 
      March 2021 were approved by the Board of directors and have been 
      delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The report of the independent 
      auditors for the year ended 31 March 2022 and 2021 respectively 
      on these financial statements were unqualified and did not include 
      a statement under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006. 
     These financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis 
      after assessing the principal risks. To monitor the future cash 
      position the Group produces projections of its working capital 
      and long term funding requirements covering 3 months in detail 
      and 1 and 2 year projections. These projections are updated on 
      a regular basis to reflect current trading and latest information 
      on future trading. The Group does have a substantial recurring 
      revenue base that accounts for 54% of revenues that provide a 
      strong underlying base. 
      The Group renewed its debt facilities with HSBC in March 2021 
      and benefitted from deferral of capital repayments which recommenced 
      in September 2021. This was in addition to reaching an agreement 
      with HMRC to repay GBP1.8m VAT, PAYE & NI equally between this 
      financial year and next. Covenant tests to the end of March 2022 
      were an absolute EBITDA tested quarterly, moving to quarterly 
      cash flow cover and leverage covenants from June 2022. 
      At the year end the Group has cash balances of GBP1,004,000 and 
      an unused overdraft facility of GBP500,000. The Groups latest 
      projections for twelve months from the date of signing the financial 
      statements show that the Group has sufficient cash resources 
      and will meet its covenants with headroom for the foreseeable 
      future. The Group has completed adverse sensitivities against 
      its current projections to reflect potential external risks where 
      material shortages constrain its ability to fulfil orders or 
      demand of its products and services reduce and material costs 
      To assess the potential impact of these, a 10% reduction in Fleet 
      new business contract value and Insurance shipments and a 10% 
      increase in material costs were modelled against the Groups current 
      forecast. Despite the cumulative impact of these changes the 
      Group still maintains compliance with the covenants for the coming 
      twelve months without the inclusion of any mitigations that could 
      and would be implemented such as price increases and savings 
      in both direct and indirect costs. 
      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 and therefore it is appropriate 
      to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing the 
      financial statements. 
        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") 
         as part of their internal reporting. 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 Group incurred exceptional costs in the current and prior 
    financial year relating to the Covid-19 pandemic. These costs 
    include the increased cost of temporarily buying raw materials 
    from auxiliary markets to ensure continuity of supply of key 
    components which were in constraint due to supply chain issues 
    caused by the pandemic. In addition this includes the costs 
    of employees during periods of furlough. 
   The Group has also 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: 
    - Restructuring costs incurred as a result of a headcount reduction 
    activity undertaken during the current financial year. 
    - In the prior year, integration and restructuring costs incurred 
    relate to integrating the activities of Route Monkey Limited 
    and Roadsense Limited 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 
    - In the current and prior year, the Group received furlough 
    grant income that relates to income received from the Coronavirus 
    Job Retention Scheme for employees furloughed as a result of

    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 
  The impairment review has been based on the Group's budgets 
   for FY-2023 which have been reviewed and approved by the Board 
   and projections for FY-2024. Forecasts for the subsequent 3 
   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 9% (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 
   The forecast shows sufficient headroom of cash flow above the 
    net assets value when we have performed sensitivity analysis. 
   1. An increase in the discount rate to 12% 
    shows headroom of GBP3m. 
   2. A decrease in the growth rate to 5% shows 
    headroom of GBP10m. 
   3. A decrease in the terminal growth rate 
    to 1% shows headroom of GBP11m. 
   In addition, sensitivity analysis has been undertaken and indicates 
    that an impairment will be triggered by: 
   1. Decrease in annual growth rates from 7% to 4% and decrease 
    in terminal growth rate from 2% to 1% and increase the discount 
    rate from 10% to 11%. 
   Or triggered 
   1. Decrease in net cash generated from operating activities 
    for FY-2023 and FY-2024 of 14%.
