*Total Contracted Units is a non-GAAP measure used by EROAD which represents
the total units subject to a customer contract and includes both units on
Depot and units pending installation.

Total Contracted Units growth in the quarter of 9,853 units (39% up on
EROAD''s previous quarterly record of 7,086) represents the single biggest
growth in units for a quarter in EROAD''s history, and the third quarter in a
row of record unit sales.  The unit sales results were records in all
markets.

Unit sales in the Established Market (ANZ) grew by 9.6% for the quarter or
4,777 units.  This is marginally above EROAD''s previous record quarter''s
sales of 4,773 for September 2017 and in the middle of the range of
expectations for the quarter, as outlined on page 13 of the updated EROAD
Investor presentation of 12 December 2017.

The Commercial Market (US) grew by 52.1% for the quarter or 5,076 units,
which is 2,763 units more (119%) than the previous record quarter of 2,313
units for September 2017.  This is also in the middle of the range of
expectations for the quarter, as outlined on page 13 of the updated EROAD
Investor presentation of 12 December 2017.
