Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as "will," "believe," "anticipate," "expect," "estimate," "intend," "plan," or their negatives or variations of these words, or similar expressions. All statements contained in this Current Report that do not strictly relate to matters of historical fact should be considered forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Company's ability to satisfy the listing criteria of Nasdaq. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions, some of which are beyond our control. In addition, these forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events and are not a guarantee of future performance. Actual outcomes may differ materially from the information contained in the forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including, the risk that we and our current and future collaborators are unable to successfully develop and commercialize our products or services, or experience significant delays in doing so; the risk that we may never achieve or sustain profitability; the risk that we will need to raise additional capital to execute our business plan, which may not be available on acceptable terms or at all; the risk that we experience difficulties in managing our expected growth and expanding operations; the risk that third party suppliers and manufacturers are not able to fully and timely meet their obligations; the risk that we are unable to secure or protect our intellectual property; the possibility that we may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; and other risks and uncertainties discussed under the "Risk Factors" section of the Company's prospectus in the registration statement on Form S-1/A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 19, 2023, and the Company's other periodic filings with the SEC. Because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Any forward-looking statement made in this Current Report is based only on information currently available and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by applicable law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligations to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

About the MultiSensor AI Name

MultiSensor AI made the strategic decision in early 2021 to transform from only selling its world-class industrial thermal sensors to developing and selling a full-stack, AI-driven predictive maintenance solution. Over the following several quarters, the company invested heavily in creating its SmartIR cloud-based platform. Co-developed with its launch customers, this platform is distinguished by its analytical power and ease of use and was designed to incorporate multiple sensor modalities and AI insights into a "single pane of glass."

Launched in mid-2023, SmartIR is rapidly revolutionizing predictive maintenance in its four core industry verticals. Having grown far beyond its thermal-device roots, the name change to MultiSensor AI reflects exactly what the company does: generate AI insights into predictive maintenance, based on data gathered from a range of sensor modalities.
