AIRIQ ANNOUNCES RECORD SHIPMENTS
AirIQ Inc. has had record unit shipments in the three months ended March 31, 2015.
"The company's investment in product improvements and customer satisfaction seems to be paying off," said Michael Robb, president and chief executive officer of AirIQ. "Our enhanced service features, such as driver behaviour reports and map overlay, have increased the value of AirIQ for its customers, and we are seeing the benefits," continued Mr. Robb.
The company's unit shipments in the quarter ended March 31, 2015, exceeded total shipments in any quarter during the previous five years. Increased sales were due to technology advancements providing added features and services to customers, large shipments to a major customer, and an increased sales focus in new and emerging markets.
There is no guarantee that increased sales volumes will be maintained throughout the remainder of the year, although the company is continuing to focus its sales efforts on larger revenue-generating opportunities.

What I really like is that IQ is working with Mosaic Capital(M.V) which is a much larger company that likes to takeover companies in multiple sectors. They own 18% of IQ and recently had their loan paid back by that company.
AirIQ is located in Pickering, near Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange, under the symbol IQ.
AirIQ offers an end-to-end wireless solution which allows customers to manage mobile assets on a cost-effective basis. AirIQ combines the power and economics of four proven technologies and offers them as one easy-to-use solution. AirIQ integrates the global positioning system (“GPS”), wireless cellular networks, digitized mapping databases, computing intelligence and connectivity / content offered by the Internet, in order to offer a complete suite of services to a diverse set of customers. These services enable a person who is managing a fleet of vehicles to access vital information or remotely control their assets from their own computer or telephone. AirIQ’s customers are able to locate, manage, monitor, control, protect and communicate with monitored vehicles in real time.
Wireless services are best known in the context of cellular voice services that allow people to communicate “anywhere and anytime”. AirIQ uses the concept of wireless mobility services to connect devices and machines. The provision of such services for “stationary machines” is called Telemetry; whereas the provision of such services for “moving machines” is known as Telematics.
Specifically, “Telematics” is the wireless communication of information and control messages to and from mobile devices or assets. AirIQ offers its services by way of an application service provider (“ASP”) business model, specializing in Telematics. Telematics services offer high value to those markets that benefit from a high level of visibility, security, efficiency, safety and utilization.

Mr. Michael Robb reports
AIRIQ ANNOUNCES REPAYMENT OF OUTSTANDING LOAN
AirIQ Inc. has repaid the outstanding amount due on its loan to Mosaic Capital Partners LP.
In December, 2013, the company entered into a credit facility with Mosaic and executed a promissory note in favour of Mosaic in the amount of $100,000. The loan had a maturity date ofJune 17, 2015, and bore interest at a rate of 15 per cent per annum, calculated daily and payable monthly in arrears. Interest only was payable on the loan on a monthly basis, and the loan was secured by a charge over all of AirIQ's property and assets, subordinate to the company's bankers.
"The loan was due for repayment in June of this year, but the board decided to repay it early given the company's strong fiscal performance to date," said Michael Robb, president and chief executive officer of AirIQ. "There was no penalty associated with prepayment, and the early repayment will allow the company to save on interest expense and strengthens the company's balance sheet," continued Mr. Robb.
"We appreciate Mosaic's support and assistance in helping the company to meet its goals and objectives."
Following this repayment, the company is no longer indebted to Mosaic, and is now free of all long-term debt.
