American Aires Announces Q1 2024 Results with Strong 37% YoY Sales Growth Despite Traditionally Soft Q1 Consumer Spending

  • Quarterly sales exceeded $2.0M
  • Gross margin held strong at 60%        
  • Cash balance grew to $2.3M

Toronto, Ontario (May 28, 2024) – American Aires Inc. (CSE:WIFI; OTCQB:AAIRF) (“Aires” or the “Company”), a pioneer in cutting-edge technology designed to protect against electromagnetic radiation and optimize human health, is pleased to announce filing of the Company’s Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion & Analysis (MD&A) for Q1 2024.

Quarterly performance was in line with Aires management’s expectations, with a strong 37% YoY increase in sales despite expected Q1 consumer spending weakness due to Q4’s traditionally increased seasonal purchases. Management also notes that order volume growth has materially increased in April 2024 to 47% YoY and to date in May 2024 to 132% YoY. Gross margin held strong at 60%. The Company improved its balance sheet in the quarter, with cash balance going from $0.03M in Q4 2023 to $2.3M in Q1 2024, thanks to an oversubscribed $4,000,000 financing in February 2024. Subsequent to Q1 2024, the Company further strengthened its treasury by closing a financing in 2 tranches in May 2024 for gross proceeds of $3,770,465 to Aires.

American Aires CEO, Josh Bruni, commented: “Now that Q1 and our heavy lifting on the IR front are behind us, we’re refocusing our efforts on deploying the capital we raised across 3 major fronts: forging prominent new marketing partnerships, building universal brand awareness, and expanding internationally. In other words, continuing to do what’s enabled our multi-year trajectory of significant revenue growth so we can make 2024 our best year ever. With a stronger balance sheet to fuel the process, we’ll scale up our growth engine’s proven data-driven advertising model for greater efficiency and effectiveness. We’ll also continue to create strategic marketing partnerships and seek mass media exposure that can help grow sales and build Aires Tech into a household brand, as we’ve already done through our partnerships with former NFL record-setter Tiki Barber, UFC star Maycee Barber, and representative of the stars WME (William Morris Endeavor), and through our coverage on Fox Business Network’s popular Dr. Drew show and on Rumble’s video platform featuring Russell Brand reading Aires ads. When you put it all together, our expectation is for our YoY sales growth to accelerate through the remainder of the year.”

Management strategically increased its focus on capital markets initiatives during Q1 2024 to widen awareness of the Company within the investment community and to raise sufficient capital to enable future sales growth by scaling up data-driven advertising, promotion and marketing investments. Capital market initiatives included the execution of 2 equity financings; uplisting the Company’s OTC listing to OTC QB to attract more US-based investors; and strategic IR campaigns and investor meetings to introduce or provide updates about the Aires story to individual investors, financial advisors and investment banks. Management will continue building on the ground gained through these initiatives though at a more measured pace.

The Aires stock price trended up strongly throughout Q1 2024, rising from $0.20 on January 2nd to $0.95 as of May 28, 2024.

The 63% increase in advertising and promotion expenses in Q1 2024 was consistent with management’s expectations and its annual strategy of proactively investing in Q1 toward creating new partnerships and brand content that will have its largest impact on sales growth in the year’s following quarters. This investment strategy successfully drove strong sales growth on an annual basis in both 2022 and 2023 and has materially increased our order volume growth in April 2024 to 47% YoY and to date in May 2024 to 132% YoY.

The 27% POP increase in marketing expenses was mainly due to a marketing partner switching from being paid 30 days after month’s end to instead being paid at the start of each month, which created a higher than usual marketing expense for a single month in Q1 2024. Otherwise, the increase in marketing expenses would have been only 6% POP.

Adjusted EBITDA loss increased slightly by $241,720 (i.e., 38%) due to the discussed increases in brand development and content creation costs combined with higher overhead.
