Telenav Reiterates Guidance and Provides Business Update
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telenav®, Inc. (NASDAQ:TNAV), a leading provider of connected car and location-based services, as a response to an announcement made by General Motors, or GM, made the following business update:
Telenav has a strong and ongoing relationship with GM, with a contract effective through model year 2025. GM’s announcement today does not alter the contract in any way. Telenav does not expect GM’s announcement to affect Telenav’s internal operating forecasts for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. Telenav notes that its guidance issued on August 8, 2019 remains unchanged.
GM currently sells vehicles with two navigation solutions, of which Telenav’s solutions are part of the one that was launched in 2017. Telenav has been gaining market share within GM while increasing revenue from GM, and Telenav expects this trend to continue up to the model year 2022. Telenav’s agreement provides that GM can offer Telenav’s navigation solution in GM vehicles through model year 2025; however, the contract does not provide minimum volume or purchase requirements.
Telenav believes its differentiated product portfolio, including connected navigation, VIVID infotainment platform, ADAS, and In-Car Commerce and Advertising, positions Telenav well for future opportunities with customers, including GM.
Telenav, in conjunction with its partners including Amazon and Microsoft, believes it is in a strong position to offer compelling infotainment solutions.
“Telenav continues to provide significant infotainment solutions to General Motors and remains a valued partner,” said Nick Richards, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, Communications Manager at GM.
“With Telenav’s model, where OEMs retain ownership of customer data and insights, and our revenue sharing model, we believe that Telenav is more aligned with OEMs’ long-term interests, making us a more sustainable partner than our competitors,” said HP Jin, Chairman and CEO of Telenav.
