BETHESDA, Md. and MARINA DEL REY, Calif., April 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iLearningEngines, Inc. (“iLearningEngines”, “iLE”, or “the Company”), a leader in AI-powered learning automation and information intelligence for corporate and educational use, is pleased to announce the completion of its business combination with Arrowroot Acquisition Corp. (formerly NASDAQ: ARRW, ARRWU, ARRWW) (“Arrowroot”). The combined company’s common stock and warrants are expected to commence trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol “AILE” and “AILEW”, respectively, on April 17, 2024.

iLearningEngines is an out-of-the-box AI platform that empowers its enterprise and education customers to “productize” their institutional knowledge, improve efficiency, and drive better, mission-critical, business outcomes. The Company operates at the intersection of three large and growing markets: global artificial intelligence, global e-learning and hyperautomation. According to Gartner, the AI software market opportunity is expected to grow at 24.5% CAGR, reaching nearly $135 billion by 2025; global e-Learning market is expected to reach $250 billion in the same timeframe. The hyperautomation market is expected to grow at an 11.9% CAGR to more than $1 trillion by 20261. iLearningEngines’ solutions are deployed within more than a dozen industry verticals across approximately 1,000 enterprise end customers and four million licensed users, and the Company sees significant expansion opportunities within both new and existing verticals and customers.

iLearningEngines’ differentiation with customers is rooted in its proprietary AI technology and specialized data sets. First, the Company builds a secure Knowledge Cloud - an enterprise “brain” made up of specialized datasets - within a customers’ data environment. Then, iLE employs its no code AI canvas, enabling rapid integration without custom programming. This enables iLE’s cognitive AI engine to generate insights, events, and recommendations across many use cases. Employees use these valuable insights to close knowledge gaps, automate workflows, and improve business outcomes. The Company grew revenue 35% year-over-year through the first nine months of 2023, and intends to disclose fourth quarter and full year 2023 financial results within the next week.

“Going public is an important milestone along our business’s growth trajectory,” said iLearningEngines CEO Harish Chidambaran. “We are pleased to add Arrowroot’s former President and CFO Thomas Olivier to our Board of Directors and look forward to continuing to leverage Arrowroot Capital’s enterprise software expertise as we execute our long-term growth strategy.”

“We are thrilled to be iLearningEngines’ long-term partner,” said former Arrowroot Acquisition Corp.’s CEO Matt Safaii. “iLearningEngines is a unique business and attractive asset: a pure-play AI software company at scale with strong revenue growth and emerging profitability. Of the more than 2,300 publicly traded software companies globally in 2023, only 17 could boast more than $400 million of annual revenue and a greater than 30% revenue growth rate in 2023.2 iLearningEngines is now in that exclusive group.”
