Contract Award and Trading Update

Trakm8 Holdings plc (AIM:TRAK), a leading telematics and data supplier to global markets, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a long term contract to deploy over a 1,000 RH600 integrated telematics and cameras systems to The Parts Alliance Group.

Trakm8 will supply the full fleet management and driver behaviour solutions based on Insight, the Group's leading analytics and data platform.

Outlook

Revenue in the second half will be approximately 15% up on the first half, despite the second and third Covid-19 lock-downs which have had a significant adverse effect on our Insurance customers as a result of the temporary suspension of driving tests. Full year revenue is expected to be approximately 20% lower than FY20, with Covid-19 compromising what would otherwise have been a year of growth. This will result in a modest adjusted loss before tax broadly similar to last year.

Whilst disappointed that Covid-19 has pushed back the return to material growth by 12 months, the Directors are confident that the Group is well positioned to return to growth driven by its expanding Insurance customer base and continually improving Fleet sales team performance.
