Genius Group Completes FatBrain AI Merger, 150% Increase in


SINGAPORE, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Genius Group Limited (NYSE American: GNS) (“Genius Group” or the “Company”), a leading entrepreneur edtech and education group, and FatBrain AI (“FatBrain AI”) an AI SaaS and Solutions company (OTCMKTS:LZGI) today announced completion of their merger to form an AI-powered Education and Acceleration group to power Sovereign AI ecosystems of tomorrow for entrepreneurs, enterprises, governments and students through AI education and enablement.

Following NYSE approval, Genius Group completed the merger, acquiring FatBrain AI in an all-stock transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, Genius Group has acquired the AI software assets, customer relationships and specific operations of FatBrain AI, with an anticipated increase of approximately 150% in the Company’s 2023 pro forma revenue guidance to an estimated $76 million to $80 million, and an anticipated increase of $4 million in pro forma net profit guidance to $7 million to $9 million.

Genius Group and FatBrain AI together enable a ‘Genius City’ exponential growth cycle with their AI edtech platform supporting over five million students and a fifteen thousand partner marketplace joining peer intelligence and AI solutions across energy, finance, logistics, manufacture, retail, tech and telco sectors delivered to SMEs, enterprises and government institutions.

Roger Hamilton, CEO of Genius Group said “The demand for AI and entrepreneurial skills continues to grow. Countries and cities around the world are seeing these skills as increasingly vital to be competitive in the age of AI. The desire for Sovereign AI institutions where countries, cities and companies can own their own data and build their own AI platform calls for localized education platforms. While ‘Smart Cities’ have been defined by the use of smart technology, our ‘Genius City’ model calls for upskilled humans alongside smart technologies and puts personalized education and peer intelligence at the heart of driving growth.”

“UAE just committed $100 billion to be a world leader in AI and recently hosted the World Governments Summit to highlight the significance of Sovereign AI enabling localized LLMs to maintain unique culture, values and data integrity. Singapore also leads with its AI strategy based on tripling their AI experts through education and training funds, together with S$1 billion in funding to implement their National AI Strategy 2.0. Our expanded team is excited to launch the Genius City growth model to accelerate the Sovereign AI reach into 100 Genius City operations as part of our goal to educate 100 million AI learners worldwide.”

Peter B. Ritz, co-founder of FatBrain AI said “Our FatBrain AI investors and global team are excited to become part of the Genius Group. As the need for upskilling and training in this age of AI accelerates, and we’re looking forward to an exciting future ahead where our combined companies will enable us to meet the massive growing, global demand for Sovereign AI and peer intelligence solutions.”

“We look forward to the partnerships and initiatives formed as part of our Genius City growth plans. We’re excited to build critical assets driving the economies of tomorrow: the global Genius City peer intelligence systems boosted by our entrepreneur education platform to share insights, talent and opportunities between countries and cities, accelerating their progress in harnessing exponential technology to become economic and social leaders of the future.”

Following a successful visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi in February by Genius Group’s Roger Hamilton together with FatBrain AI Board Members, Peter Ritz and Michael Moe, the newly merged group will launch their Genius City model in April 2024 with the Dubai Genius City and Abu Dhabi Genius City, followed by the Singapore Genius City, each with a target to educate and impact one million students, entrepreneurs and enterprises within each city within a year of launch.

The merger enables the companies to combine Genius Group’s AI-driven Edtech platform with FatBrain AI’s AI-driven peer intelligence, sector-specific SaaS solutions to SMEs (Companies with 500 or less employees), larger enterprises and governments, creating a full ‘Genius City’ end-to-end AI Education and Acceleration ecosystem, with four global revenue drivers focused at B2S (Students), B2C (Entrepreneurs), B2B (Enterprises) and B2G (Governments):
