MiX reports lower profit
Johannesburg – New York and JSE-listed MiX Telematics reports lower profit, despite having hit the 600 000 subscriber mark.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the company said this was as of the three months to December.
MiX provides fleet and mobile asset management solutions delivered as software-as-a-service (Saas).
The subscribers are across its combined fleet and consumer customer base.
“Passing the 600 000 subscriber mark is a great achievement,” says CEO Stefan Joselowitz.
The company says its strong third quarter results were driven by general strength across the portfolio, including a positive contribution from energy sector customers, as well as the ongoing shift towards bundled deals, which also increases the long-term value per subscriber.

Total Revenue: Total revenue was R401.4 million, a gain of 6 percent.
However, the company’s profit declined to R35.1 million from R57.9 million a year ago.
Joselowitz says “MiX is well positioned to maintain momentum for the remainder of the year – and beyond”.
