    VANCOUVER, BC, August 2, 2023, Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI:TSXV) (FOBIF:OTCQB) (the "Company" or "Fobi"), an industry leader in harnessing AI and data intelligence to enable digital transformation, is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a data license agreement with Phillips Brewing & Malting Co. The data license agreement will provide Phillips Brewing with a fully automated data intelligence tool delivering real-time analytics, insights, and forecasting capabilities at the liquor retail store level as well as the first-of-its-kind industry-level performance and positioning insights. Fobi will generate revenue from this deal through monthly license fees.


    Traditionally, many breweries have little insight into the movement of activity for their shipment data, which causes brands to continuously stock more inventory or ship more products without fully understanding what that looks like on a transactional level. As a part of this new agreement, Fobi will provide Phillips Brewing with an advanced analytics platform to help the brewery better understand its business, specifically as it relates to private retail liquor store performance (by SKU) as well as the company's market share among regional breweries and across British Columbia's beer industry overall.

    Fobi’s custom dashboard will enable Phillips Brewing to build detailed customer profiles based on various factors, including demographics, purchase history, and spending patterns, to better cater to its customers' preferences and identify emerging industry trends. Phillips Brewing will also gain greater visibility into shoppers' basket compositions, highlighting the most popular product pairings and other brands that Phillips Brewing customers frequently interact with or purchase from. This data can ultimately provide the brewery with key insights into new opportunities that will drive continued growth and success, such as future partnerships or collaborations with the most popular brands within and beyond the craft beer segment.

    David Nicholls, VP of Liquor Beverage at Fobi AI, states: "Until now, breweries have been in the dark about leveraging data to better understand their businesses and optimize their private retail performance as a result. Uncertain about where their brands competitively stand within the BC beer industry, we’re equipping breweries like Phillips with a fully automated analytics platform that delivers real-time insights to drive future growth and success, while helping them make smarter and faster data-driven decisions with precise confidence."

    Matt Lockhart, National Sales Director at Phillips Brewing, states: "We believe this agreement has the opportunity to be a potential game-changer for our team at Phillips. We are excited to begin leveraging the impressive real-time data intelligence solutions Fobi has provided us with. We take great pride in the quality products we craft, and now, looking forward, we will be able to focus on leveraging data to make faster data-driven decisions that help us serve our customers in new, engaging ways.”

    Rob Anson, CEO of Fobi AI, states: This is a very well-timed and supported agreement with Phillips Brewing. It aligns perfectly with our anticipation of the value realization of which the Fobi Data Exchange is poised to deliver to both our liquor clients and, most importantly, our valued shareholders.

    The Company looks forward to providing additional material updates as they occur over the upcoming weeks.
