In one of the most anticipated listings in months, telematics group, TeliMatrix Limited (TeliMatrix) today listed on the JSE main board. The share opened strongly at 180 cents, 5 cents higher than its placement price of 175 cents and was trading at 180 cents at 1pm, with over 4million shares having traded.

TeliMatrix provides a broad range of alternatives including vehicle tracking-and-recovery, driver safety and advanced fleet management products and services. Its recent acquisition of OmniBridge will strengthen its market position and expand its geographic footprint into 6 continents. TeliMatrix’s primary reason for listing was to facilitate the OmniBridge transaction, no capital was raised during the listing and no new shares were issued. The listing also enables TeliMatrix to take advantage of future acquisitive opportunities and increase public awareness of the company both locally and internationally.

Stefan Joss, CEO of TeliMatrix says: “TeliMatrix is very proud to be listed on the JSE. Through our highly cash generative businesses and the flexibility we now have of being a public company, we will be able to extend our local and global reach through organic and acquisitive growth.”

Joss adds: “TeliMatrix and OmniBridge compliment each other well and operate off similar technology platforms. Combining the two companies’ markets will enable us to roll out our recurring revenue model into the existing international distribution channel.”

At the current share price, the company’s market capitalisation stands at around R1.2 billion, with 640 million shares in issue.

About TeliMatrix
TeliMatrix ( was established in 1995 as a vehicle tracking and recovery business operating under the Matrix brand. In 2005 Kagiso acquired 25% of its equity to facilitate the company’s empowerment objective. With the aim of creating an integrated group focusing on all levels of vehicle telematics, In TeliMatrix acquired OmniBridge in 2007. The various businesses within TeliMatrix are all independently profitable and cash-generative.

TeliMatrix has three divisions:

Matrix was founded in 1995 by current TeliMatrix CEO Stefan Joss. With over 135 000 active subscribers it now has the largest GSM tracking subscriber base in the country. Matrix’s core activity is vehicle recovery and the business owns its own helicopter and operates a network of dedicated ground response teams throughout South Africa. Advanced technology gives Matrix a significant competitive advantage and has allowed it to expand its product offering and focus on value-added services. Examples of these value-added services include features such as “Crash Alert” and “No-Go Zones.”
“Crash Alert” sends a signal to the control room when a vehicle experiences a high impact and “No-Go Zones” alerts the control room when a vehicle enters an area that was identified as a high risk area where the owner is unlikely to travel. In both cases appropriate response teams (either medical or security) are immediately deployed.

In 1997, Siemens VDO abandoned its own internal onboard computer project and undertook to distribute the OmniBridge product range exclusively worldwide.
