|Item 3.||Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration|

As more fully described in Item 4 hereof, Mr. Calisto has not paid any funds or other consideration in connection with the execution and delivery of the Voting Agreement (as defined below) and therefore no consideration was paid in connection with the voting rights requiring the filing of this Schedule 13D.
|Item 4.||Purpose of Transaction|
In anticipation of the Issuer’s initial public offering, and recognizing that Mr. Calisto, as founder, would receive no special rights pursuant to the Constitution of the Issuer, Mr. Calisto and Georgem Holdings (Pty) Ltd. (“Georgem”) entered into that certain Voting Agreement (the “Voting Agreement”), dated as of March 22, 2021, with the purpose of providing Mr. Calisto and his permitted transferees the right to exercise, or cause Georgem to exercise as directed by Mr. Calisto and his permitted transferees, the voting rights in respect of the Georgem Holding (as defined below).
In connection with the initial public offering of the Issuer in the United States, a corporate reorganization (the “Corporate Reorganization”) was undertaken pursuant to a scheme of arrangement under Section 114(1) (as read with Section 115) of the South African Companies Act (the “Scheme”), whereby the Issuer, as the majority shareholder of Cartrack Holdings Limited (“Cartrack”) acquired for cash all of the outstanding ordinary shares held by the minority shareholders of Cartrack at a price equal to R42.00 per share (the “Scheme Consideration”), and, as a result, Cartrack became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Issuer. In connection with the Scheme, certain eligible shareholders of Cartrack elected to use all or a portion of their Scheme Consideration to subscribe for Ordinary Shares of the Issuer (the “Reinvestment”). Georgem, an eligible Cartrack shareholder, used its Scheme Consideration to participate in the Reinvestment and acquired 3,550,000 Ordinary Shares on April 21, 2021 (the “Georgem Holding”).
Pursuant to the Voting Agreement, Mr. Calisto and Georgem have agreed that if Mr. Calisto’s beneficial ownership falls to below 51% of the issued and outstanding Ordinary Shares of the Issuer, then Georgem will cast all votes in respect of the Georgem Holding as directed by Mr. Calisto and his permitted transferees. In addition, without the prior written consent of Mr. Calisto, Georgem is not permitted to (i) transfer more than an aggregate of 550,000 Ordinary Shares owned by Georgem or (ii) acquire any additional Ordinary Shares.

Such discussions and actions may be preliminary and exploratory in nature, and not rise to the level of a plan or proposal. Subject to the terms and conditions of the documents described herein to which Mr. Calisto is a party, Mr. Calisto or his affiliates may seek to acquire securities of the Issuer, including Ordinary Shares and/or other equity, debt, notes or other financial instruments related to the Issuer or the Ordinary Shares (which may include rights or securities exercisable or convertible into securities of the Issuer), and/or sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of such Issuer securities or financial instruments (which may include distributing some or all of such securities to Mr. Calisto’s respective partners or beneficiaries, as applicable) from time to time, in each case, in open market or private transactions, block sales or otherwise. Any transaction that Mr. Calisto or his affiliates may pursue, subject to the terms and conditions of the documents described herein to which Mr. Calisto is a party, may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and will depend on a variety of factors, including, without limitation, the price and availability of the Issuer’s securities or other financial instruments, Mr. Calisto’s or such affiliates’ trading and investment strategies, subsequent developments affecting the Issuer, the Issuer’s business and the Issuer’s prospects, other investment and business opportunities available to Mr. Calisto and his affiliates, general industry and economic conditions, the securities markets in general, tax considerations and other factors deemed relevant by Mr. Calisto and such affiliates.
