Vancouver, British Columbia October 30, 2023 – AlphaGen Intelligence Inc. (CSE: AIC) (OTC Pink: APETF) (FSE: W4V) (“Alpha” or the “Company”) a technology company that focuses on emerging markets in metaverse and 3D production, gaming and generative artificial intelligence, is thrilled to announce its fourth quarter and full year-ended June 30, 2023 financial results.

Alpha has achieved record financial performance for the second consecutive quarter, surpassing $949,000 in revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2023, reaching approximately $2 million in revenue for the year ended June 30, 2023.

A significant contributor to the Company’s financial success has been a long-term contract to create and launch a large retail metaverse for a multi-billion-dollar international brand. In addition, the Company has expanded its offerings into additional verticals, including leveraging generative AI to create digital production efficiencies as well as continued focus on our gaming-as-a-service (“GaaS”) “Mana” platform. The Company’s GaaS platform, Mana, empowers business to access a powerful competitive gaming platform, enabling customers to enhance user engagement and monetization.

Brian Wilneff, CEO of Alpha, commented “I share immense pride with the management team in the achievements of this quarter and this fiscal year. It has been an intensely focused year, during which the company met and exceeded all of its revenue goals and objectives, with the bulk of new revenue coming from 3D content production services and venturing into new business verticals, such as the launch of our AI Center of Excellence.

Our strategic expansion into the use of AI, focused initially on cost savings and efficiency in creative and 3D asset production, has ushered in a wave of exciting possibilities for future growth and innovation. When added to prior innovations such as our Mana GaaS (gaming as service platform), these deliberate moves underscore our commitment to diversification and our keen awareness of the benefit of staying at the forefront of evolving market trends.

Continued Wilneff, “I am grateful to our exceptional team whose unwavering dedication has made these accomplishments possible. Together, we seek to set new standards of success as we shape what is expected of us. This exceptional quarter stands as a pivotal milestone in our ongoing journey, as we persistently strive for a prosperous future for our Company, our customers and stakeholders.”

EBITDA:

Please note that EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and is not a measure of financial performance under IFRS, and therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management believes this measure provides useful information as it is a commonly used measure in the capital markets and as it is a close proxy for repeatable cash generated by operations.

The Company calculates EBITDA as follows: Net income (loss), plus (minus) the add-backs or reversals of the following: unrealized foreign exchange (gains) losses, interest (income) expense, tax (recovery) expense, depreciation expense, share-based payments, gain on debt settlements/ extinguishments, and certain one-time non-operating expenses, as determined by management, reconciled as follows:

Management believes this measure provides useful information to investors as it is a commonly used measure in the capital markets and as management believes that it is a close proxy for repeatable cash generated by operations. While management believes EBITDA is a useful measure, it has limitations as an analytical tool, and it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of other IFRS financial measures. Some of the limitations of EBITDA are that it does not reflect the dilution that results from share-based compensation, does not reflect the cost to replace amortized property and equipment and right-of-use assets and does not reflect income tax payments.
