“Despite the pandemic, our 2022 financial year commenced on a solid note as the strong growth in net subscriber additionscontinued.

Karooooo Ltd. Announces First Quarter 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

First Quarter 2022 Highlights: (All comparisons relative to the First Quarter 2021)

SCALE ●   1,366,470 subscribers in total, up 21% (Q1 2021: 1,133,547) ●   Net subscriber additions increased 760% to 60,470 (Q1 2021: 7,032)

GROWTH ●   Total revenue increased 17% to ZAR626 million (Q1 2021: ZAR535 million) ●   Total revenue increased 22% on a constant currency basis ●   Subscription revenue increased 15% to ZAR606 million (Q1 2021: ZAR526 million) ●   Subscription revenue increased 20% on a constant currency basis ●   Subscription annualized recurring revenue (“ARR”), a non-IFRS measure, increased 18% to ZAR2,491 million as at May 2021 (May 2020: ZAR2,106 million)

Karooooo achieved excellent revenue growth of 17% in the first quarter of 2022. The South African Rand (“ZAR”) significantly strengthened against the basket of currencies in which Karooooo operates. Subscription revenue growth was driven by Karooooo’s robust business model that delivered 21% growth in the number of subscribers to 1,366,470. On a constant currency basis revenue grew 22% and subscription revenue by 20%. The ZAR appreciated by 19% against the US Dollar (“USD”) and on average 16% compared to the rest of the group’s operating currencies.

New customer additions contributed significantly to the first quarter 2022 net increase of 60,470 in subscribers (vehicles or other mobile assets on our platform), meaningfully higher than the first quarter of 2021 where subscribers increased by 7,032. Sales and marketing basic salaries and marketing costs are a major component of the cost of acquiring new customers and are not expensed over the expected life span of a customer, but rather expensed when incurred. This component of operating expenditure was significantly higher by ZAR37 million in this quarter compared to the first quarter of 2021 and we believe the negative effect on operating profit in this quarter places us well for future margin expansion.

Operating expenditure related to sales and marketing increased 71% in the first quarter of 2022 as the group continues to enhance its vertically integrated sales and marketing teams and drive customer acquisition. R&D operating expenditure increased 44% compared to the first quarter of 2021, supporting the continued enrichment and expansion of our SaaS platform. General and administration expenditure increased 21% compared to the first quarter of 2021.

The group delivered operating profit of ZAR168 million (Q1 2021: ZAR182 million) and Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, of ZAR275 million (Q1 2021: ZAR 266 million) for the first quarter of 2022, an 8% decrease and 3% increase respectively, compared to the first quarter of 2021. In line with our growth plans for this financial year, the Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-IFRS measure, dropped to 44% compared to 50% in the first quarter of 2021.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Overview

Subscription Revenue and Total Revenue

Total revenue increased 17% to ZAR626 million. Karooooo has high revenue visibility with subscription revenue accounting for 97% of total revenue in the first quarter of 2022. Subscription revenue increased 15% to ZAR606 million driven by 21% growth in the number of subscribers to 1,366,470 compared to the first quarter of 2021. Subscription ARR increased 18% to ZAR2,491 million in May 2021, compared to ZAR2,106 million in May 2020. In USD, subscription ARR increased 51% (USD181.2 million in May 2021, compared to USD119.7 million in May 2020), driven in part by rand appreciation with the ZAR to USD exchange rate of ZAR13.75 at the end of May 2021 compared to ZAR17.60 at the end of May 2020. Operating Expenses

As planned, operating expenses increased 38% to ZAR250 million compared to the first quarter of 2021 in preparation for future growth with a significant recruitment drive focused mainly on sales, customer experience and R&D.

●   Sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of subscription revenue increased to 14.6% compared to 9.9% in the first quarter of 2021.

●   R&D expenses as a percentage of subscription revenue increased to 5.4% compared to 4.3% in the first quarter of 2021.

●   General and administration expenses as a percentage of subscription revenue increased marginally to 21.2% compared to 20.2% in the first quarter of 2021.

Operating Profit, Adjusted Profitand Adjusted Earnings per Share

The group delivered operating profit of ZAR168 million for the period (Q1 2021: ZAR182 million), 8% lower than the first quarter of 2021. Customer acquisitions, resulting in net subscriber additions of 60,470 during the quarter, were meaningfully higher compared to the first quarter of 2021 in which the net subscriber additions were 7,032. The significant increase in net subscriber additions provides context to the increased investment in sales and marketing expenditure which takes approximately 6 months to translate into customer acquisition. While the investment into sales and marketing headcount has materialized in part, management expects to see the full benefit thereof, via growth in customer acquisition, by the end of the fourth quarter of 2022.    Adjusted profit, a non-IFRS measure, decreased 11% to ZAR118 million partially due to the higher effective tax rate of 31% in the first quarter of 2022 compared to 27% in 2021, primarily attributable to once-off IPO costs that are not tax deductible. The ZAR10 million difference between adjusted profit and profit relates to once-off IPO costs expensed during the quarter. Similarly adjusted earnings per share, a non-IFRS measure, decreased 10% to ZAR3.90 in the first quarter of 2022 compared to ZAR4.32 in the first quarter of 2021.

The total IPO costs (including underwriters fees) have amounted to ZAR85 million of which ZAR36 million has been expensed (ZAR26 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and ZAR10 million in the first quarter of 2022) and ZAR49 million has been set-off against share capital.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, increased 3% to ZAR275 million. The Adjusted EBITDA margin, a non-IFRS measure, margin was 44% for the first quarter of 2022 compared to 50% in the first quarter of 2021, attributable to higher operating expenses as Karooooo invests for future growth. Management expects Adjusted EBITDA margin to revert to levels of more than 45% for the full financial year.  

Management’s Assessment of Subscriber Unit Economics

ARPU

ARPU measures the monetization of Karooooo’s SaaS platform and is an indicator of pricing efficiency, competitiveness and market positioning. It is calculated on a quarterly basis by dividing the cumulative subscription revenue for the quarter by the average of the opening subscriber balance at the beginning of the quarter and closing subscriber balance at the end of the quarter and dividing this by three.

The group’s ARPU of ZAR151 for the first quarter of 2022 was marginally lower than ZAR155 for first quarter of 2021 largely as result of the recent strength of the ZAR against our regional operating currencies and the COVID-19 related support to loyal customers. The group’s ARPU has been fairly consistent since inception more than 15 years ago and management believes that ARPU at these levels provides attractive margins and sustainable growth in most countries.

Cost of Acquiring a Subscriber

The cost of acquiring a subscriber (vehicles or other mobile assets on our platform) includes the cost of the telematics device together with any labor related costs for our automotive technicians and the cost of the direct sales commission. Karooooo’s low cost of subscriber acquisition benefits from its vertically integrated business model, which allows it to control service levels, costs, improve efficiencies and be in direct contact with customers instead of relying on third parties.

Management’s assessment of the cost of acquiring a subscriber for the first quarter of 2022 was ZAR2,005 compared to ZAR2,636 for the first quarter of 2021, a 24% improvement due to the lower relative cost of Karooooo’s next-generation telematics devices and the increased efficiency of its sales team.

Subscriber Contract Life Cycle

The average life cycle of a subscriber is an important indicator of the group’s ability to drive margin expansion. Based upon its latest internal actuarial assessment, the estimated average useful life of a subscriber contract is 60 months. When customers hold their vehicles on Karooooo’s SaaS platform for longer than 60 months, subscription revenue gross profit margins improve further.

1.ARPU multiplied by the contract life cycle months, multiplied by the subscription revenue gross margin percentage which is defined as subscription revenue divided by gross profit.

Outlook

Karooooo has a history of consistent organic growth, scalability, strong earnings and financial discipline. The company has been highly cash generative with most of its revenues recurring in nature and has operated with high operating and EBITDA margins.

Operating in a growing and materially underpenetrated global automotive market coupled with a growing vehicle parc and the trend of customers seeking digitalized software solutions to address higher operating costs, unproductive use of resources and inefficient workflows, we believe Karooooo remains well positioned for growth. The group offers a key “must have” service to its customers, driving efficiency through a powerful and differentiated digital platform that is feature-rich and vertically integrated.

Karooooo has multiple levers for expansion and continues to enhance and optimize the Cartrack platform for the evolving future of mobility to drive sustained profitable growth, supported and enhanced by its unleveraged balance sheet and strong cash position.

As a result of the numerous uncertainties associated with the ongoing impact of COVID-19, it is difficult to provide guidance with certainty. However, Karooooo’s growth expectation ranges for full year 2022 compared to full year 2021 remain unchanged to what was reported previously in the results announcement on May 6, 2021. Management expects the following ranges for full year 2022:

●   Number of subscribers between 1,500,000 and 1,600,000

●   Subscription revenue between ZAR2.5 billion and ZAR 2.7 billion

●   Adjusted EBITDA margin between 45% and 50%

Actual results may differ materially from Karooooo’s Financial Outlook as a result of the pandemic and exchange rate fluctuations, among other factors described under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and cash flow

Karooooo has a robust balance sheet with ample capacity to fund organic growth and remains disciplined in its approach to capital allocation and cash management. Notwithstanding the significant and continuing investment in research, operations and distribution Karooooo has remained highly cash generative with a strong cash flow targets for the foreseeable future:

●   Karooooo’s highly cash generative business model resulted in cash generated from operations of ZAR224 million compared to ZAR187 million reported for the first quarter of 2021.

●   The group generated Free Cash Flow, a non-IFRS measure, of ZAR106 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to ZAR121 million in the first quarter of 2021.

●   After the group paid a dividend of ZAR253 million in FY21 Q3 and the corporate reorganization and listing in FY22 Q1 raising net proceeds of R396 million, Karooooo ended the quarter with ZAR554 million in cash and cash equivalents, significantly higher compared to ZAR246 million at the end of the first quarter of 2021.

●   The group has a ZAR925 million unutilized bank facility with The Standard Bank of South Africa Limited should it be required for strategic growth initiatives or other general corporate purposes

Karooooo’s paid-up share capital of ZAR7.1 billion consists of 20,332,894 shares comprising 1,000 Singaporean dollars plus USD194,242,000 and a further issuance in April 2021 of 10,618,212 shares accounting for an additional USD311,714,659 in paid-up share capital.

The negative reserve of ZAR5.4 billion comprises ZAR1.3 billion of retained earnings less the common control reserve of ZAR2.7 billion plus ZAR4.0 billion relating to the buyout of 95,350,657 Cartrack shares at ZAR42.00 per share from minorities and ZAR44 million in the foreign currency translation reserve.

First Quarter 2022 Segmental Overview

South Africa

During the pandemic, Karooooo focused and leveraged its strong position and well-established national distribution network in South Africa which enabled solid growth in the quarter, contributing to Karooooo’s robust financial performance.

Revenue and subscription revenue in South Africa increased 28% and 25% respectively, compared to the first quarter of 2021. Subscription revenue earned in South Africa remains the main contributor to the group’s total subscription revenue accounting for more than 70% thereof in the first quarter of 2022. This result is encouraging and corroborates management’s strategic decision to invest for future growth.

At the end of the first quarter of 2022, South Africa had 1,064,005 subscribers, up 23% compared to the first quarter of 2021.

Based on our estimates, we are the largest and fastest growing enterprise mobility SaaS provider for commercial fleets in South Africa.

With South Africa officially in its third wave of COVID-19 infections and the social unrest situation experienced in some parts of the country last week, management remains focused on navigating the operating environment in the second quarter of 2022.

Asia Pacific, MiddleEastand United States

Asia Pacific is the second largest revenue contributor and we believe presents the greatest potential in the medium to long term as markets remain considerably underpenetrated due to fragmented market participants delivering entry-level offerings. During the first quarter of 2022 Asia experienced increased lock down restrictions with less travel given the new COVID-19 variants prevailing in this market. When these restrictions ease, management expects accelerating growth in the Asia segment. Asia is an attractive market given its size, low penetration, and favorable competitive environment. The highly fragmented market offers a meaningful opportunity for Karooooo to capture market share. Preparing for beyond the pandemic, we significantly increased our headcount by 157 employees in the last three quarters in Southeast Asia.

On a constant currency basis revenue in this region increased 10% compared to the first quarter of 2021, even in the context of ongoing COVID-19 related impacts in the Asia Pacific markets driven by the 17% increase in the number of net subscribers to 124,617 in the first quarter of 2022. Revenue growth reported in ZAR was negatively impacted by the ZAR strengthening significantly and discounts allowed to loyal customers which remain affected by the pandemic, resulting in a 7% decrease in revenue compared to the first quarter of 2021.

The group’s strategic office in the United States continues to yield many key insights that have positively contributed to the group.

Europe

The European segment delivered subscription revenue growth of 14% on a constant currency basis which corresponds to the net subscriber growth of 14%. This result was offset by currency headwinds with the ZAR strengthening significantly against the EURO, with revenue earned unchanged compared to the first quarter of 2021. Karooooo’s intended expansion strategy in Europe remains encouraging and it now has 114,767 subscribers in Europe. Looking ahead, the opportunity to add new enterprise customers in Europe appears promising as increased economic activity following the pandemic is expected.

Africa (excluding South Africa)

This segment remains a positive cash generator and is strategic to Karooooo’s operations in Southern Africa. The number of subscribers increased 5% to 63,081 however revenue decreased 10% on a constant currency basis. The effects of the pandemic in this region lagged that of other regions and deteriorated further during the first quarter of 2022. The group’s results in Africa continue to be impacted by the discounts allowed to loyal customers who remain severely affected by the pandemic.

Change to the Board of directors of Karooooo (“Board”)

Mrs Siew Koon Ong (Mrs Siew Koon Lim) has been appointed as an independent non-executive director to the Board and member of the Audit and Risk Committee with immediate effect.
