Detroit, Michigan, June 1, 2022 — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients, filed its annual report on Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission for its fiscal year 2022 ended February 28, 2022. AITX is a ‘full SEC reporting’ company that files detailed annual and quarterly reports.
“So much was accomplished in fiscal year 2022,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX. “Beyond the outstanding revenue growth is the structural growth that has put AITX and its RAD subsidiaries in a fantastic position. I expect that this will catapult us in the future.”
Key Takeaways from the FY 2022 10-K Filing
Revenue Increases 400% Of Prior Year’s
Total revenue for the year ended February 28, 2022, was $1,447,109, which represented an increase of $1,086,221 compared to total revenue of $360,888 for the year ended February 28, 2021. The company seeks to meet this growth rate for this fiscal year.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
Cash increased to $4,648,146 on February 28, 2022, from $1,044,418 on February 28, 2021.The Company received over $12.5 million in share proceeds and over $9.4 million in new loans, mostly long term. Not only did this influx of cash improve liquidity it allowed the Company to fund its operations and growth.
Company Growth & Harmony
Headcount on February 28, 2022, and 2021 of 75 and 23, respectively, represents a 226% increase. Current employee count is 83. This growth is in support of the necessary infrastructure build (Administration, Business Development, Engineering, Production) to achieve the Company’s growth objectives and meet future sales demands. Rapid growth and creation of departments and teams can create significant challenges and set back the company if not completed successfully.
AITX and its subsidiaries announced and/or launched several new solutions during the fiscal year and in the first quarter of the current year. These solutions leverage the RAD platform to provide unique ‘security-in-a-box’ solutions that can be deployed in less than 30 minutes and provide innovative solutions such as weapons detection and more. Introduced in FY 2022 was the award-winning line up of ROSA 3.0, AVA 3.0, RAD Light My Way, ROAMEO 2.0, plus several enhancements to RAD’s software suite.
Significant Expansion of Sales Funnel and Potential
RAD’s sales funnel grew substantially in both quantity and quality. Technically the qualified opportunity count increased over 100%, but when the improved quality and depth is considered, the funnel increases could be considered closer to 300%. Furthermore, the RAD dealer network almost doubled during the fiscal year which further substantiates our target market’s acceptance and excitement. Management feels that new deployed devices in the subsequent fiscal year can be between 250 and 1250, representing 100% to 500% growth. There remains potential for even larger device rollouts although management cannot estimate or guarantee with further specifics.

“FY 2022 will prove to be a catalyst year for AITX. We built on our momentum to grow our business and reach into new markets with new solutions,” Reinharz added. “As we look forward, the strong demand for our solutions, the execution of our sales strategy, and the constant advancements to our technology leads me to believe that we could see significant growth, up to 20 times, in our recurring monthly revenue run rates at the end of current fiscal year ending February 28, 2023,” Reinharz concluded.
The Company expects to file for uplisting to the OTC QB by June 10, 2022.
