Q1 Operational Highlights
- Signed first licensed SaaS customer for DRIVER AI Software
- Signed four DRIVER proof of concept projects, one of which was converted directly to full license
- Transitioned to annually renewing contracts in SaaS products, creating reliable income
- Enhanced the Board of Directors with the addition of Dr. David Poole
“We are pleased with the results of our first quarter despite the change in revenue from same quarter in the prior year. We have made the transition to SaaS sales for DRIVER, which results in revenues being allocated over the period of the contract, as opposed to a fixed consulting contract which provided immediate revenues once completed. In our opinion, this transition is positive as it will result in longer term more stable revenues” said Scott Tillman, Chief Executive Officer.
Management expects future periods to result in higher sales as the contracts for DRIVER accumulate and renew.
In addition, the board of directors has authorized the issuance of 1,541,750 options to directors, officers and employees of the Company at an exercise price of $0.07 per share for a term of two years expiring May 26, 2024.
Additionally, the Company and Morgan Knowles have agreed to continue working together for one year, renewing the investor relations contract for a one-year term at the same rate as previously announced in addition to 100,000 options included in the prior paragraph on the same terms and conditions.
