“MiX Telematics’ management provided an upbeat set of presentations during yesterday’s investors meeting. The main focus of the meeting is that the company is going all in for the Americas market. Management has a strategy for the Americas to become the majority business contributor and for a full US stock listing over the medium term. Bottom Line: GARP-Y investors should take a look at MIXT. The business bottomed in FY:2016 and has been on an uptrend since. There are good upside drivers (US market expansion, new products, new verticals, increasing subscriptions mix, IoT) and operating leverage is coming through with scale. Negatively, 2H:FY2019 Adj.
