guess. next to over So quarters, the It's we the in energy two that's recapped the Canada and [ph] launch sector. -- United States roll three expect or I in that

know than you the that up been for speaking quarter experience. so, about that contraction rolled had would made the more as And we probably we're it, out have in

perspective, close of on others I was that quarter signs from the in that good one course that year that with. lots [ph] one So we deals third there's those to were that yes, year that guess in third and of hoping of pipeline reporting working our referenced feverously we of and I

Stefan Joselowitz

Thanks.

Mike Walkley

X% on Can base it it back for contraction before that? on? they slowed their U.S. of also Joss, down or any us metrics about So a of historically of shutting of on you had the what more, you in indication, the that. give the kind down, talking they us they Do do couple just building ago, know they when down years or when is of percent you're gas some in have fleets shut come kind an or oil general. you you market do

Stefan Joselowitz

I What pretty we subscribers the in haven't done base. been sector. revenue guess number of on put XX% globally, base about that that revenue clear is I a our specific we've mean, subscription

gives percent that was XXXX near some XXXX. quarters it, experienced nowhere from recent you that in what change of think I in it we've feel stretched the contraction is subscriber

but as years several situation I we different. the our is of are confident sector this crisis macro the with global that then uncertainty. And don't profitable future, most view of remain customers I'm and in the it the dealing in saw lots ago.

multiple to focus to in and win So, we've the build wins significant up and that's what is of would verticals doing. other we across multiple and what just opportunities need this secured continuing that of business I on sector. course we're a sector remind outside you

the did So subscribers we this quarter. add and over headwind despite XX,XXX

of you it would I'm quarter. had lots All-in-all excited spectacular effect, our about. us just for by been there's know contraction overall, every it a that So been the there measure so not about stuff business in have really

renewals the us. in quarter, which some see multiple and equally the the for again, win from that sector always Of the important But disappointed is to course, is contraction counterpoint new to customers. in

good -- about generally the business. feeling So are

Mike Walkley

John, Okay, income just for And me statement. the questions couple that's great of a helpful. on

back lower understand levels, to to and the You still a gross talked hardware this term? kind going gross longer long-term think other these stay start about Is or bounce some headwind about on the way that margin already goal? at quarter. revenue it that in XX, margin it How its just we to was does should intermediate and of you towards

John Granara

to start quarters. going I revenue level Yes, XX%, would increase us I the that of to say see more continue expect next where that probably the see we've and at percentage for increase where margin long one gross than that bumping given kind know XX% But ago. color. of as you start to probably out in I blended would to know a with to enough to towards you to you I – subscription as the we it's X% future, revenue, think if just that looking as get been two But that's near-term we're provides of year a things around

Mike Walkley

the opportunity line, there to OpEx double-digit growth about as the marketing Last just it talked Great, me market. little in sequential over next How think that's U.S. the should or slower pass just couple to about you just I'll of and question maybe we helpful. off it the investment going or from Is a be quarters? the just you continue XX% of kind a will growth ramps, you grew?

John Granara

So we meet. should

around quarter this baked our ramp QX, into on fiscal big we’ve to I marketing, intending the we're so the guidance indicated, and carrying certainly new focus we'll year. but starting next spend and wise, expect happening into certainly and we've to As strategic that that be so sales for over our

the geography We I in our digital more marketing in terms I are [ph] actively of combination as inbound see looking also see certainly that ramp salespeople you way of think think guess business that to more should to the has the efforts to think that us term. in short percentage or than us to place. revenue about increase think put a starting line up one lead medium And certainly increased. I We're you that generation. about

in to a different help presence Joss? that you Can a related on lot having of geographies? have Just

Stefan Joselowitz

Brian Peterson

some being lot we benefits geographies. synergies are customers, seeing seeing different that in where opportunities about And presence, are the we regions. I'm of of you fleet a that? talking these a true large of in curious so the different And in terms with global are having of just I'm No, more just in global

Stefan Joselowitz

you And continue I the some of that absolutely, have rebel little said wins drive it's clarity. [ph] I get platform really And synergies but for large pipeline the expecting multinational in some we're to some these hoping, Thank were fact making in Thank and we've longer for taking been our as done, be. those really of to what in we I in will quarters what is, currently these projects you. got of the believe the them strength guess exciting and a our to plan and longer us. been our announcements. couple some short things term is than pipeline for a of

So no we've you to we starting expect But comes definitely multinational certainly their the keep customers, an across weeks that just or in wins that on. announced in posted quarter, there's to data when increasingly regard. to see in and doubt we it and for hunger of reported some more it. value we'll flowing in operations these multinational But certainly they're recognize the coming months, centralized there's increased

us -- an position. in exciting puts competitive So it

Brian Peterson

good hear. Well to it's

And you make that how clear isolated specifically to know just so as and the a some other in reference vertical. tension global been verticals looking Is I'm retention to sure of just trade outside some of the rates it's energy curious, I that has energy energy I the sales vertical? cycles are cycles on want contraction vertical the on maybe renewals. hitting bit, extended in sales well.

Stefan Joselowitz

energy we've effect So that sector. just to isolated think contraction I much seen the is the pretty

and those time, which effort to vehicles just to I reactivated with seeing fleets good. will kind those about. I'll which expansion a little go thing pent natural energy sector, you we verticals in phases, with these of up we be a even decent mode, we this in way, growth remind they when turn, in is growth believe believe, growth will the -- believe appear through and which start won't because that I by will [Indiscernible] very is still the of I developing is most be which good future think And other So, sales

the cycles, elongated the not it's it's we've an I sale guess of terms definitely that just I think. of energy in outside sector, seen effect In

around nervousness because slowing I think concerns. global there's that paralysis of kind players of from impact of lots we've a definitely decision seen a decisions, global larger down are trade

you their it's first make kind deals a hard just And longer to there's these time just know to We before. and phenomenon done, moral get paid it's present if the case to this the odd to so to excuses; get get And customer even from we've of we and economy perspective. done. not observed the closed deals to we're I've tried this taking it not compelling said weakens

Operator

going It lost move of Gearhart We're with the line line. appears we've to Analysis. on Brian’s First to David

Operator

in sec. John, gentlemen the please Hi Gerhart for we David. Please continue. momentarily. question. line. and stand one a the hold had the difficulties please Ladies queue And We'll resume on technical by. David on you question remain having We're may

David Gearhart

is David I’m Analysis. First of this guess, Hi, I up. Gearhart

wanted question. the gross know You to I revisit margin

is there mix think your versus impacting your in an subs had as about with prepared impacts other timing gross you you as of partners terms go-to-market effect of the can difference on I between the revenue margin is with margin, fleet mentioned well part gross via premium installations impact, in tracking, the but asset and remarks talk direct?

Stefan Joselowitz

to the mix things the Yes. have an I say, tracking that the certainly we have all ARPU, moderate just will subscription as in hit our so mean did impact decrease after those we that gross did But impact. a margins. of of

the contracts. to The depreciation to in-vehicle devices second bundled I mention, thing did the charges related the is related

so a expense. fixed And is that

regardless are expense. revenues you the of of level of still levels same recognizing so, the And

will of as contraction And revenue. depreciation the percent of increase a i.e. so subscription when you have actually period

the but subscriber margin again. begin gross product we there as this well, continue to base we all effect see types So would in that the with to was expand quarter would expect that that grow of as particular we

David Gearhart

QX color. lastly, fiscal the I about thanks guide. to And ask for the wanted Okay, then

the take the of to with expect you're you If SaaS expecting on the the usually sequentially in be And quarter-over-quarter your at side for at you'd looking subscription the history, and guidance you model. both midpoint grow quarter. midpoint subscription as hardware back down

on it's that's midpoint guys I fiscal general just ARPU what's revenue I subscription of I side the haven't found at quarter said that the were on higher premium that and think, subscription of asset QX tracking you a you that in side. -- on for replacing a sequentially you're with driving one the the level the and the effect a contracting it typically contract And a lower quarter. actually because also, you're quarter not with side. sequentially where revenue on then down we hardware Is seen like ARPU more fleet then do expecting function

see So just additional guide? color wanted if a to could little on you provide I QX that

Stefan Joselowitz

Sure.

let the start So me subscription revenue let first. with me

it little down that factors One upon. touched the guiding the further. correct. are We there. a we key some you it slightly to I’ll are that saw quarter. contraction to we bit elaborate QX, throughout in actually happened But So regards With

full so, at QX. much effect of base because the experienced the in And will entering we throughout quarter quarter the quarter are contraction effect a actually that we have lower of we the the

coming is that most the that, And so with Americas. decline of in

So ahead, to decline as particular sequentially. region expecting we that look we are

being in other have by other of a the see. growth also we result as In additional headwind decline addition, related in FX. about And forecasting regions. all of is That the all conditions Americas the X areas, we million we of the offset that the are to a some contraction

So causing million gaining additional on that to actually a But FX flat subscription be hit decline. is of constant quarter-to-quarter. currency X basis, revenue the we're

hardware to it revenue deals installation areas and subscription. come potential the other, regards on and the dependent play, where we when hardware there recognizing of before are the are timing is the the With certain into

we so things in on And timing of the it's and where see based the now, pipeline just that.

the good know we said, focus feel and feel range about being we so we've appropriate revenue. for subscription an pretty both, on you guidance. is like But And clearly provided the that our

David Gearhart

lastly then wondered the just Got talked for deals overview are falling bit a the lot little out wondered if of it. And the lost give about it past, being I just a a you not about you you've just talk us of the to qualitatively In qualitative if healthy could of pipeline? competitors. being quick I Joss, pipeline. could pipeline me,

Stefan Joselowitz

that clearly view ones. My frustrated on happening -- subscribers. summarized certainly quickly I'll that I’m into some where net you time it a delving hasn't of larger of are deals some all well. enough we XX,XXX changed, spending really did Sure. with the and quite see would that team larger add not these we remind And been everybody,

there's Small medium sized that lot other additions, So smaller and fleets. fleets. many aspects subscriber a performing and business the well, happen of of are smaller that from those or transactions either individual sales

rate But that the on here, about. we you objectives great we lot cycle -- kind important talking and our was That's aspect. we of we know challenges challenges more longer despite will just really to that other growth face, whales to is macro one of and pleased confident course, very the board, [ph] the we about, confident it's happen. a our announced we growth that NOV easier that and I us of put the you achieve So But holding can that exciting we're we'll frustrations the that of ones and know can rate in ideal I growth referenced with we example business. that hopefully some towards feel about but making it the to equally others some deliver was in did again, going future, despite happen, near be the want stop out announcements pipeline sales than a that we elongated expected. taken of which were There's a it the

David Gearhart

you much Got color. Thank the so it. for

Stefan Joselowitz

I appreciate it. Thank you.

We expect as a the street we shorter spin. to really in a get more in can. that lag we So feet want to the don't be on frame necessarily time

significant that expect helps that were term I prepared certainly so to short potentially marketing around digital third relatively the a in of the We to referenced, efforts hope is I Q&A it parallel planning and the in and again, your course component up there's in answer remarks, a is spin. for that think our and So a I question. happen, earlier ramp which exercise, we lag in marketing certainly don't to

Brian Schwartz

you the then And thinking here this fiscal question a ramp It for about Clearly, cash nice had to ask year, end strong here with to the does, to somewhat John, looking sound growth. next thanks going Joss. about there. year help real ramp business drive you're like just the out It investment you're like up looks in just one to flow. does increase it some acceleration

it Can then next balance year. to going maybe as for about you're sound spending the think us some the initiatives, of two and maybe help. Thanks kind big the cash year more trajectory does those this you investments ramp for be flow help like we

John Granara

Yes.

that marketing, so just to would an near to XX% know it are back XX%. spending at we're range looking the to hit and then are invest So XX% I for in had planning from and we at to but XX% term, in said expect to a as think you that standpoint, area currently we XX% probably we sales Joss

much don't we in in higher also the term. think That of said, near than will it of business. being investments I the terms XX% peak making other areas So, in are

continue that and do and to the to out we leverage we'll expenses get but as of believe admin we'll monitor well. so, that, other will continue And

always So and maintain that that has discipline. balanced to and the to we're company continue going growth approach the profitability
