Subscription Revenues:
Subscription revenues were $31.3 million,
an increase
of 1.6% compared to $30.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. Subscription revenues represented 86.6% of total revenues during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022. Subscription revenues
increased by 2.5%

grew by a net 24,700
subscribers.
The majority of our revenues and subscription revenues are derived from currencies other than the U.S. Dollar. Accordingly, the strengthening
of the U.S. Dollar against these currencies (in particular against the South African Rand) following recent currency volatility, has negatively impacted our revenue and subscription revenues reported in U.S. Dollars. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021, the South African Rand weakened by 2% against the U.S. Dollar. The Rand/U.S. Dollar exchange rate averaged R15.25 in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 compared to an average
of R14.96 dur
ing the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. The impact of translating foreign currencies to U.S. Dollars at the average exchange rates during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 led to a 0.9% decrease in reported U.S. Dollar subscription revenues.

of 35.7%, compared to $3.6 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Segment Information
Our operating segments are based on the geographical location of our Regional Sales Offices (“RSOs”) and also include our Central Services Organization (“CSO”). CSO is our central services organization that wholesales our products and services to our RSOs who, in turn, interface with our end-customers, distributors and dealers. CSO is also responsible for the development of our hardware and software platforms and provides common marketing, product management, technical and distribution support to each of our other operating segments.
Each RSO’s results reflect the external revenue earned, as well as its performance before the remaining CSO and corporate costs allocations. Segment performance is measured and evaluated by the chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) using Segment Adjusted EBITDA, which is a measure that uses income before income tax expense excluding net interest income/expense, net foreign exchange gains/losses, net loss/profit on sale of property, plant and equipment, depreciation, amortization, operating lease costs, stock-based compensation costs, restructuring costs, non-recurring legal costs, gains or losses on the disposal or impairments of long-lived assets and corporate and consolidation entries. Product development costs are capitalized and amortized and this amortization is excluded from Segment Adjusted EBITDA.
The segment information provided to the CODM is as follows (in thousands and unaudited):

Description of reconciling items:
For the purposes of calculating Segment Adjusted EBITDA, operating lease expenses are excluded from the Segment Adjusted EBITDA. Therefore, in order to reconcile Segment Adjusted EBITDA to income before income tax expense, the total lease expense in respect of operating leases needs to be deducted.
For segment reporting purposes, product development costs, which do not meet the capitalization requirements under ASC 730
Research and Development
or under ASC 985
, are capitalized and amortized. The amortization is excluded from Segment Adjusted EBITDA. In order to reconcile Segment Adjusted EBITDA to income before income tax expense, product development costs capitalized for segment reporting purposes need to be deducted.
During fiscal year 2021, $0.7 million, $0.2 million, $0.1 million and $0.1 million of the restructuring costs related to CSO, Africa, North America and Middle East and Australasia reporting segments, respectively.
Annexure A: Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Business Metrics
We use certain measures to assess the financial performance of the business. Certain of these measures are termed “non-GAAP measures” because they exclude amounts that are included in, or include amounts that are excluded from, the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, or are calculated using financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures include adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, free cash flow and constant currency information.
An explanation of the relevance of each of the non-GAAP measures, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of their limitations is set out below. We do not regard these non-GAAP measures as a substitute for, or superior to, the equivalent measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP or those calculated using financial measures that are calculated in accordance with GAAP.
In addition to providing the non-GAAP financial measures mentioned above, we disclose Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) to give investors supplementary indicators of the value of our current recurring revenue contracts. ARR represents the estimated annualized value of recurring revenue for subscription contracts that have commenced revenue recognition as of the measurement date.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin
Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are two of the profit measures reviewed by the CODM. We define adjusted EBITDA as income before income taxes, net interest income/expense, net foreign exchange gains/losses, depreciation of property, plant and equipment including capitalized customer in-vehicle devices, amortization of intangible assets including capitalized internal-use software development costs and intangible assets identified as part of a business combination, stock-based compensation costs, restructuring costs, non-recurring legal costs and profits/losses on the disposal or impairments of assets or subsidiaries. The adjusted EBITDA definition has been updated also to exclude non-recurring legal costs relating to a patent infringement matter that arose during fiscal year 2022. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.
We have included adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in this press release because they are key measures that the Company’s management and Board of Directors use to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends; to prepare and approve its annual budget; and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s core business. Accordingly, the Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results.
A reconciliation of net income (the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP) to adjusted EBITDA for the periods shown is presented below (in thousands and unaudited):

Includes depreciation of owned equipment (including in-vehicle devices).
Includes amortization of intangible assets (including intangible assets identified as part of a business combination).
Our use of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered as performance measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
Some of these limitations are:
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
Adjusted EBITDA does not consider the potentially dilutive impact of equity-based compensation;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to the Company;
other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure; and
certain of the adjustments (such as restructuring costs, impairment of long-lived assets and others) made in calculating adjusted EBITDA are those that management believes are not representative of our underlying operations and, therefore, are subjective in nature.
Because of these limitations, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin should be considered alongside other financial performance measures, including income from operations, net income and our other results.
Adjusted net income is defined as net income excluding net foreign exchange gains/losses net of tax.
We have included adjusted net income per share in this press release because it provides a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business by excluding net foreign exchange gains/losses net of tax and associated tax consequences from earnings. Accordingly, we believe that adjusted net income per share provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results.
The following tables (in thousands, except per share data, and unaudited) reconcile net income to adjusted net income and diluted net income per ordinary share or ADS to adjusted net income per ordinary share or ADS for the periods shown:

Free Cash Flow
Free cash flow is determined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditure for investing activities. We believe that free cash flow provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s cash flows as it provides detail of the amount of cash the Company generates or utilizes after accounting for all capital expenditures including investments in in-vehicle devices.
The following table (in thousands and unaudited) reconciles Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow for the periods shown:

Constant Currency
Constant currency information has been presented to illustrate the impact of changes in currency rates on the Company’s results. The constant currency information has been determined by adjusting the current financial reporting period results to the prior period average exchange rates, determined as the average of the monthly exchange rates applicable to the period. The measurement has been performed for each of the Company’s currencies, including the South African Rand and British Pound. The constant currency growth percentage has been calculated by utilizing the constant currency results compared to the prior period results.
The constant currency information represents non-GAAP information. We believe this provides a useful basis to measure the performance of our business as it removes distortion from the effects of foreign currency movements during the period.
Due to the significant portion of our customers who are invoiced in non-U.S. Dollar denominated currencies, we also calculate our subscription revenue growth rate on a constant currency basis, thereby removing the effect of currency fluctuation on our results of operations.
The following tables (in thousands, except year over year change) provide the unaudited constant currency reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure for the periods shown:
Subscription Revenue:
Year Over Year Change

We believe that ARR is a key indicator of the trajectory of our business performance and serves as an indicator of future subscription revenue growth. We define ARR as the annualized value of subscription contracts that have commenced revenue recognition as of the measurement date. ARR is calculated by taking the subscription revenue for the last month of the period, multiplied by 12. It provides a 12 month forward view of revenue, assuming unit numbers, pricing and foreign exchange rates (the average monthly exchange rates applicable to the last month of the period) remain unchanged during the year. Constant currency ARR growth has been determined by adjusting the prior financial reporting period results to the last month of the current period average exchange rates, determined as the average monthly exchange rates applicable to the last month of the period.
ARR does not have a standardized meaning and is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. ARR should be viewed independently of revenue and is not intended to be combined with or to replace it. ARR is not a forecast and the active contracts at the date used in calculating ARR may or may not be extended or renewed.
The following table (in thousands and unaudited) provides the constant currency ARR:
