Transaction Information
Pointer Telocation Ltd. (Nasdaq: PNTR; TASE: PNTR), a leading provider of telematic services and technology solutions for Fleet Management, Mobile Asset Management and Internet of Vehicles, has closed its previously announced acquisition by I.D. Systems, Inc.

The new combined company will be rebranded as PowerFleet, Inc. and now trades on the Nasdaq Global Market and Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) under the ticker symbol “PWFL”.

This acquisition and new corporate branding positions PowerFleet as a leading global provider of enterprise-class wireless Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) technology powering wireless solutions for the multi-trillion-dollar logistics, industrial vehicle and fleet management markets. To date, PowerFleet’s solutions have been selected by more than 1,500 customers and operate on more than 500,000 mobile subscriber units globally.

“We believe this is a disruptive, transformational combination for our industry, creating a new company with a North America market and global international foot print, having product leadership, technology leadership and supply chain superiority,” commented David Mahlab, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pointer, and as of the closing the CEO International of PowerFleet.“ The acquisition culminates a two-year strategic working relationship between Pointer and I.D. Systems. Together, I.D. Systems and Pointer will have the advantage of being vertically integrated, unlike any of our competitors in the market.” Mahlab continued: “PowerFleet will deliver high-value, technology leading, IoT products globally. With this new company, we expect to extend our leadership position in the growing mobile IoT and connected vehicle market, increase our penetration in North America, and expand our market share of the global IoT telematics market. Our combined platforms and solutions will create immediate leverage and greatly accelerate our connected vehicle strategy.”

David Mahlab added: “I would like to use this opportunity and thank the team, Pointer management and especially Mr. Yaniv Dorani, Pointer’s CFO, who played a pivotal role in making this complex transaction happen. I also want to thank our shareholders that enabled this transformative change and specifically DBSI which has been with us for a very long time and without whose active support we would not have reached this moment”.
