Traded in other countries:ITRN.Israel,
Ituran Location and Control Ltd was incorporated in February 1994 in Israel. In May 1998, it completed the initial public offering of its ordinary shares in Israel. The Company is a provider of location-based services, consisting predominantly of stolen vehicle recovery and tracking services. It also provides wireless communications products used in connection with its location-based services and for various other applications, including automatic meter reading and radio frequency identification. It currently provides its services and sells its products in Israel, Brazil, Argentina and the United States. The Company utilizes technologies that enable precise and secure high-speed data transmission and analysis. Some of the technology underlying its products was originally developed for the Israeli Defense Forces in order to locate downed pilots. Its wireless communications products segment consists of its short- and medium-range two-way wireless modems and are used for various applications, including automatic vehicle location, which it refers to as AVL. Its AVL products enable the location and tracking of vehicles, as well as assets and persons, and are used by the company to provide SVR and fleet management services to its customers. Wireless communications products for AVL applications include: Base Site, Control Center, GPS/GPRS-based products and Smart. Base Site: a radio receiver, which includes a processor and a data computation unit to collect and send data to and from transponders and send that data to control centers as part of the terrestrial infrastructure of the location system. Control Center: a center consisting of software used to collect data from various base sites, conduct location calculations and transmit location data to various customers and law enforcement agencies. GPS/GPRS-based products: navigation and tracking devices installed in vehicles. SMART: a portable transmitter installed in vehicles (including motorcycles) that sends a signal to the base site, enabling the location of vehicles, equipment or an individual. The Company markets and sales in five target groups: insurance companies and agents, car manufacturers, dealers and importers, cooperative sales channels (mostly vehicle fleet operators and owners) and private subscribers. Its competitors in Israel are Eden Telecom Ltd. (Pointer) and Skylock Ltd. Brazil is a highly fragmented market with many companies selling competing products and services (including immobilizers and other less-sophisticated vehicle security systems). Its competitors in Brazil are Sascar, LoJack Corporation and Car System.
