Johannesburg, 10 June 2013 – MiX Telematics, a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions delivered as software as a service or SaaS, announces strong growth in subscriber base and subscription revenue as well as good cash generation upon the release of its full-year financial results for the year ending 31 March 2013.
“Our subscriber base grew to over 359,000, increasing by 31% from the previous year,” says Stefan Joselowitz, CEO of MiX Telematics.
“Our subscriber growth fueled the growth of our subscription revenue by 20% to R687 million, while our total revenue was up 15% to R1,17 billion. EBITDA grew 19% to R285 million and headline earnings increased 26% to R132 million.”

In addition, the company has a strong focus on cash generation and generated a remarkable R288 million in cash from operations.
“The building blocks are firmly in place to support our continuous efforts to leverage our cash generative business, thereby growing our subscription base and entrenching our position as a global leader. “A notable step taken in this regard recently was the opening of a MiX Telematics office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to service the specific requirements of customers in that market,” says Joselowitz.
