Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK) reported its full year results today and as expected it was a year of medium progress as they rebuilt the business into one consolidated unit, invested heavily in new Sales & Marketing resources as well as R&D..both of which they have plenty to show for.

Oh and SaaS impact is finally over, 2018/2019 will enjoy the cash benefits of all the contracts they converted since, so expect a much better FCF going forward.

Free cash flow improved to an inflow of GBP1.0m (2017: outflow GBP3.0m). This represents a 90% conversion of profit before tax to cash.
Migration to a Telematics Service Provider now complete with progress in core telematics division driving higher recurring revenues
Achieved planned reduction of annual operating costs by GBP1.5m with savings reinvested into sales and marketing - particularly in Fleet Management
-Core telematics business revenue (Solutions Revenue) grew by 26% and Group adjusted profit before tax grew by 142%.
Net debt decreased by GBP0.6m to GBP3.3m (2017: GBP3.9m)
We have continued to develop market leading software and hardware solutions and during the year launched the new Insight software platform and the RoadHawk 600, which have provided the Group with a strong pipeline of opportunities. During the year, we announced new contracts with Intelematics, Calor Gas UK and Mecalac, and a number of contract extensions with Marmalade, Iceland Foods, and Direct Line Group.

All in all progress across all fronts, with improvements in profits, net debt, revenue, contracts and consolidating costs.

What about Outlook?

We alreaady knew that they need to exit another £2m of CEM contracts so it waas always known that H1 will take a hit because of that, which is reflected in the first thing they mentioned on the outlook message.

But what what about the upcoming Solutions plans?

Since year end, the Group is also pleased to announce a contract award from Intelematics Australia, and a contract extension from FMG
