Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 27, 2020) - Datametrex AI Limited (TSXV: DM) (FSE: D4G) (OTC Pink: DTMXF) (the "Company" or "Datametrex") is pleased to update its shareholders on the growth of film and television production COVID TESTING. As Film and Television studios continue to expand productions throughout Canada, Datametrex is being requested by its current clients to take on more coronavirus testing for their portfolio of productions across the country.
The Company has also been approached by additional film and studio companies for Datametrex to assist with fulfilling the studio with their own testing needs. Based on these current contracts, and additional opportunities for testing services which the Company is pursuing and in discussions for, management believes that the Company is on track to achieve approximately 4,000 tests per week, based on current operations Datametrex, current cost and revenue model, would result in revenue of approximately $20 million over the next 28 weeks. There can be no assurance or guarantee that this revenue amount will result for the Company.
The global film and video market is expected to decline from $252.9 billion in 2019 to $244.4 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -3.4%. The decline is mainly due to economic slowdown across countries owing to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it. The market is then expected to recover and grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2021 and reach $284 billion in 2023.
Marshal Gunter, CEO, said, "I must first say thank you to the entire team at Datametrex along with the medical and lab professionals for their tireless work at the company. We are ramping up our business to meet increasing demand and our expectation based on what we are seeing in the market is to execute on approximately 10,000 tests per week on a progressive basis. We are witnessing a paradigm shift within the film industry. With the advent of movie theaters being closed in numerous regions around the globe due to government enforced shut downs by coronavirus, film and television companies rely more on at-home streaming services to maintain a robust revenue model. Content production is key to this and Canada is a major platform for content development. The demand remains high for qualified medical professionals from the private sector to be on site, and in the lab, ensuring complete and timely delivery of coronavirus tests supplied by Datametrex." He continued, "with our growing revenue model, we remain committed to our shareholders and will announce further developments with additional conference calls and press releases in the coming weeks."
