AITX Reports Gross Profit Up Over 250% Over Previous Year’s 1st Quarter

Gross Profit Percentage Increases to 76%, Operating Expenses Down 10%

Detroit, Michigan, July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients, today reported a gross profit of $293,697, representing a significant increase compared to the same quarter last year (Q1 FY 2023), which recorded a gross profit of $91,433. This demonstrates a year-over-year (YoY) growth of approximately 221%. AITX is a ‘fully reporting SEC company that files detailed annual and quarterly reports with the SEC. The Company’s first quarter of FY 2024 began March 1, 2023, and ended May 31, 2023.

“These results show improvements in fundamental parts of our business. I’m excited to show where we’ll be in Q2, Q3 and as we finish what appears to be a pivotal year for our business,” said Steve Reinharz, Founder and CEO of AITX.

Highlights from Q1 of Fiscal Year 2024:

During Q1, total operating expenses for the three months ended May 31, 2023, were $3,242,674, representing a 10% decrease from the total of $3,588,089 for the three months ended May 31, 2022. The reduction in operating costs is attributed to lower general and administrative expenses as the Company successfully reduced stock-based compensation, wages and salaries, and travel expenses. The remaining impact of the Company's cost-saving measures implemented in FY 2023 will be reflected in the Q2 FY 2024 statements for the period ending August 31, 2023.

Gross profit percentage increased to 76%, up from a reported GPM% of 24% in Q1 FY 2023. This gross profit margin (GPM) increase is the result of a higher percentage of RMR (Recurring Monthly Revenue) via subscriptions vs. capital purchases in the quarter, improvements in supply chain issues and upgraded production processes.

The sales over total assets ratio witnessed a slight increase from 0.06 for the three-month period ended May 31, 2022, to 0.07 for the three-month period ended May 31, 2023. While this growth may seem modest, it indicates a positive trend towards better utilization of the Company's assets. The upward movement in the ratio indicates that the Company has improved its ability to generate sales revenue in relation to its asset base, reflecting enhanced efficiency in asset utilization.

Notably, the Company increased the outstanding share count by a modest 4%, specifically 280,929,190 common shares, during the three months ended May 31, 2023. The Company plans to raise up to $30 million through the issuance of additional shares over the next year. These funds will be used by the Company for its growth initiatives and to reduce its debt.

“Our team, channel partners, customers and investors have demonstrated immense commitment and support, leading to these impressive growth metrics,” added Reinharz. “However, there is still a significant amount of work ahead of us to fully accomplish our objectives.”
