Item 2.02

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.




On December 10, 2018, CalAmp Corp. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing the Company’s updated guidance for the third quarter ended November 30, 2018. A copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.




The information contained in this Current Report pursuant to this “Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition” is being furnished. The information in this Item of Form 8-K and on Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed to be filed for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section.


Item 8.01

Other Events.


As previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including for the quarter ended August 31, 2018 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on September 27, 2018, Tracker Connect (Pty) LTD (“Tracker”), the licensee in South Africa of LoJack, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, commenced mandatory and binding arbitration proceedings in December 2016 against LoJack’s wholly-owned subsidiary, LoJack Equipment Ireland DAC (“LJEI”). On December 6, 2018, the arbitral tribunal issued its confidential final ruling by awarding $6.2 million to Tracker.  


The Tracker arbitration was related to the EVE Energy Co., Ltd. (“EVE”) battery claim previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC. On October 27, 2014, LoJack and LJEI, commenced arbitration proceedings against EVE by filing a notice of arbitration with a tribunal (the “Tribunal”) before the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre. LoJack and LJEI alleged that EVE breached representations and warranties made in supply agreements relating to the quality and performance of battery packs supplied by EVE. On June 2, 2017, the Company was notified that the Tribunal rendered a decision and awarded damages to LoJack and LJEI (the “Damage Award”). On June 9, 2017, the Company entered into a settlement agreement with EVE and its controlling shareholder EVE Holdings Limited to resolve the Damage Award by having EVE Holdings Limited, make payments to us in the aggregate amount of approximately $46.6 million, which amount is net of attorneys’ fees and insurance subrogation payment (the “Settlement”).


As of November 30, 2018, we had received approximately $44.1 million of the Settlement. The Settlement amounts are reported upon receipt as other non-operating income in our consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2018 and the nine months ended November 30, 2018. We expect to receive the remaining $2.5 million in installments in the fourth quarter ending February 28, 2019.


At this time, the Company is pleased to report that all outstanding legal matters related to the EVE and Tracker matters are complete.


This Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements (including within the meaning of Section 21E of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 27A of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended) concerning CalAmp.
