Management Commentary 
“In the fourth quarter of 2022, the world refocused its attention on how powerful artificial intelligence can be and on its ability to change the world. Over the last eight years, we have built our award-winning AI platform from the ground up, and now we can be proud that our team has made us one of the leaders in artificial intelligence, specifically in computer vision,” noted Kai-Shing Tao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Remark Holdings. “While operating under the strict Covid lockdowns in China, 2022 was a transition year where we successfully diversified our business primarily to the U.S. and the United Kingdom, where we will reap the benefits in 2023. Our recently-won customers and strategic partners like Genetech and Milestone attest to our ability to deploy our AI-based solutions to help businesses run more effectively and efficiently and provide an immediate ROI. In 2023, you will see our team continue to deliver with new customers, to expand our business with existing customers, to expand into Latin America and the Middle East, and to build and create cutting-edge AI technology that makes a real difference.”

Fiscal Year 2022 Business Highlights 

  • The company, with its AI-powered Smart Safety Platform (“SSP”) and related Smart Sentry units, has been selected by Milestone and other market-leading providers in the video management software industry as strategic partners. Remark’s integration with Milestone Systems’ XProtect® platform allows organizations to make real-time, data-driven decisions and uncover data insights from the autonomous detection of security incidents and breaches 24 hours per day.
  • Remark AI won the contract to provide the SSP, Smart Sentry, and related equipment to Fremont Street Experience to help maintain the safety and security of Fremont Street Experience’s more than 26 million annual visitors. The installed system provides real-time, actionable alerts, performs crowd counts, analyzes behavior, and detects intrusions, loitering, suspicious objects, fire, and smoke. It allows for intelligent investigation of any security events.
  • In the fourth quarter, the company deployed its Smart Campus solutions at an additional 100 campuses in China, bringing total installations to more than 600 campuses and helping protect more than 1.2 million students. In addition, Remark’s AI-based comprehensive student reporting system has undergone pilot programs in a few cities, which, upon completion of the pilot programs, will expand coverage to an additional 350 schools.
  • By the end of 2022, the company completed an additional 11 installations of its Smart Construction solution in China, bringing the total installations to 97 sites and continuing to work towards the completion of a second 60-site project. Each initial construction project generates approximately $100,000 in revenue, and the pace of Remark’s installations is expected to grow as China opens up.
  • The Covid-19-related lockdowns that continued for long stretches of time during 2022 in various regions in China prevented Remark from completing even more deployments of its Smart Campus and Smart Construction systems as had been planned, and the company had to re-evaluate the planned deployments of its systems in China Mobile retail locations and at various banks. Remark expects that deployments at China Mobile retail locations and at banks will gradually resume in the second quarter of 2023.
  • As of December 31, 2022, Remark was able to restart its China Mobile Smart Community installations, and the company expects to complete installations of approximately 100 of its Smart Community systems in 2023.

 Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Results 

  • Revenue for fiscal year 2022 totaled $11.7 million, reflecting a 27% decrease from $16.0 million during fiscal year 2021.
    • Revenue contributed by Remark’s U.S. businesses decreased by $3.5 million during fiscal year 2022 when compared to fiscal year 2021, primarily because the company performed $2.8 million worth of AI data intelligence services and advertising services related to a daily fantasy sports project during fiscal year 2021 but did not repeat the same or similar project during fiscal year 2022. A decline in demand for Remark’s thermal imaging products also reduced U.S. revenue by approximately $0.4 million.
    • Revenue from China decreased to $11.4 million in fiscal year 2022 from $12.2 million in fiscal year 2021, primarily due to lengthy lockdowns and other restrictive measures under China’s Zero COVID policy that were implemented and continued in many cities across China well into the fourth quarter of 2022. Such lockdowns and restrictive measures prevented the company from completing as many projects as had been expected.
  • Gross profit decreased to $0.3 million in fiscal 2022 from $4.5 million in fiscal 2021 commensurate with decreased revenue.
  • The company’s operating loss of $21.3 million during fiscal year 2022 reflected an increase of $7.4 million from an operating loss of $13.9 million during fiscal year 2021. In addition to the decrease in revenue, changes in Remark’s technology and development expense, general and administrative expense and a recovery of marketing expense in fiscal year 2021 that was not repeated in fiscal year 2022 contributed to the increase in operating loss.
  • Net loss totaled $55.5 million, or $5.22 per diluted share, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, compared to net income of $27.5 million, or $2.70 per diluted share, during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. The prior fiscal year included a $43.6 million non-operating gain on the revaluation of the company’s investment in the common stock of Sharecare, Inc. The value of the investment declined significantly since the prior fiscal year due to macroeconomic and stock market conditions, such that when the company disposed of the investment through sales and in partial settlement of debt, a $26.4 million loss on investment resulted. Interest expense increased to approximately $6.0 million during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, from $2.3 million during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, primarily due to a large increase in debt principal outstanding and debt discount related to new debt.
  • On December 31, 2022, the cash balance totaled $0.1 million, compared to a cash balance of $14.2 million on December 31, 2021. Net cash used in operating activities was $16.6 million during fiscal year 2022.
  • In response to a notice received on July 2, 2022, from the company’s senior lenders, Remark delivered, on July 11, 2022, its remaining 6,250,000 shares of Sharecare, Inc. to its senior lenders, which reduced the outstanding principal amount on its senior secured loans by approximately $9.7 million. As a result, the company no longer owns any equity interests in Sharecare, Inc.
  • On October 6, 2022, the company obtained an equity line of credit pursuant to which, after certain conditions are met, it can sell its common stock to Ionic Ventures LLC in exchange for as much as $50.0 million.
  • On December 21, 2022, the company effected a 1-for-10 reverse split of our common stock.
