Trading Update

Trakm8, a UK based technology leader in fleet management, insurance telematics, connected car, and optimisation, provides the following trading update for its current financial year ending 31 March 2024 ("FY-2024").


On 24 November 2023, the Group announced, inter alia, that discussions were ongoing to secure a large optimisation software sales contract (the "Contract") and that the Board expected to meet market expectations for FY-2024 provided that this Contract was secured in FY-2024.


In the interest of ensuring that the Group is positioned to secure the best commercial outcome in relation to the Contract, the Board has determined that it is no longer appropriate to attempt to conclude discussions in relation to the Contract in the current financial year.


Noting that entering into the Contract in the current financial year underpinned the Group's market expectations for FY-2024, the Group will now no longer meet market expectations for FY-2024.  


In addition, it has separately become apparent to the Board that trading during February and March 2024 has also been negatively impacted, primarily due to ongoing shortages of insurance capacity. Consequently, this has contributed to lower connections and recurring revenues for FY-2024 than previously expected.


The Board therefore now believes that Group turnover for FY-2024 will be £16.4m resulting in an adjusted loss before tax of £1.4m for the period. The Group's cash position at 31 March 2024 is anticipated to be approximately £0.4m.


While the combination of the delay in securing the Contract and the weaker-than expected trading during February and March 2024 is disappointing, discussions in relation to the Contract are ongoing. While there can be no certainty as to the conclusion of these discussions, the Group expects to benefit from any revenues generated from this potential Contract in the financial year ending 31 March 2025 ("FY-2025"). However, the Group anticipates that its FY-2025 results will be adversely impacted by the lower levels of insurance connections, as outlined earlier. At this stage, the extent of any shortfall is unclear as this will depend on insurance capacity returning at which point the Board is hopeful there will be a surge in demand.
