MARK Stock Alert: AI News Causes Volatility for Remark Shares

Remark (NASDAQ:MARK) stock is moving on Wednesday with investors learning about a contract with the Rio De Janeiro police department.

This contract will see the company providing the organization with license plate and facial recognition capabilities for their police vehicles. The update to these vehicles is expected to be completed within the next 120 days. It’s working with Brazil system integrator iProp.Tech to add the functionality.

Remark is set to benefit from the contract for its AI capabilities as the contract is worth $6 million. The fine details of the contract have it set for 30 months with recurring revenue. Following the successful test of the first phase, Remark could generate additional revenue in Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the contract.

Eduardo Ventura, CEO of  iProp.Tech, said this about the deal.

“With 26 states in Brazil, and only two states at this moment looking for these AI solutions, we have a lot of ground to cover. Since São Paulo and Rio De Janiero are the most influential states in Brazil, we have no doubt that the remaining states will start inquiring about the same solutions.”
