This powerful combination will form a scaled, global entity of choice focused on helping customers save lives, time and money by solving mission-critical business challenges.

Joselowitz said: “We strongly believe that Powerfleet’s Unity strategy and our combined scale perfectly positions us to revolutionize the mobile asset IoT SaaS industry and Drive transformative growth. As a shareholder I am very excited about how this combination will accelerate the achievement of our shared strategic goals.”

The agreement is expected to create a day one business with a total revenue of $279m including $210m of recurring high-margin SaaS revenues and combined service gross margins of 67%.
