Midrand, South Africa, May 25, 2017 - MiX Telematics Limited (NYSE: MIXT, JSE: MIX), a leading global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions delivered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and for its full fiscal year 2017, which ended March 31, 2017. "Our fourth quarter marked a strong end to the year. MiX’s ability to exceed expectations was driven by ongoing strength across the portfolio globally which resulted in a return to double digit subscription revenue growth on a constant currency basis,” said Stefan Joselowitz, Chief Executive Officer of MiX Telematics. “During fiscal 2017, the company reached an inflection point in regards to margin accretion, particularly as MiX is moving out of a heavy investment cycle into a phase where we are starting to enjoy the returns on these investments. We are scaling the overall operations and have entered fiscal 2018 with very good momentum. We expect a year of strong subscription revenue growth and margin expansion, and looking forward we are confident in our ability to execute our strategic initiatives to achieve our targeted adjusted EBITDA margin of 30% over the long term.”
