Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (OTCPK:AITX), today announced that employees of its subsidiaries are receiving stock awards that are expected to mature in 48 months.
"We want to reward our team members with company stock to ensure that their long-term objectives are in line with our investors," said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX.
