Los Angeles, CA – August 2, 2018 – After completing successful due diligence, ASX listed engage:bdr (ASX:EN1) is pleased to announce acquisition of AdCel, a US-based digital media and advertising company. By acquiring AdCel, engage:BDR will increase current integrations to add over 6,000 exclusive new apps to its publisher supplier portfolio. This will significantly increase the combined Company’s advertising inventory available for sale.

 

“The acquisition of AdCel will allow engage:BDR to strengthen its value proposition to buyers and publishers alike. The proprietary technology powering AdCel’s SDK, and their track record for outperforming competitors in that arena, makes it a no-brainer for publishers to adopt. In addition to this, our buyers now stand to receive richer data through the bid request stream, allowing more efficient targeting of ads, delivering the most relevant advertisements to the audience engaging with the app.”

Ted Dhanik, engage:BDR CEO

 

AdCel also has a pipeline of additional integrations which will add to the engage:BDR existing and growing integration pipeline. AdCel’s 6,000+ exclusive App inventory will be able to be sold to engage:BDR’s current integrated buyers. This will effectively create a multiplier effect on engage:BDR’s revenue as it will significantly increase the number of publishers onto which the Company can sell inventory and at the same time allow AdCel clients to be sold onto engage:BDR sites.

 

“AdCel’s best-in class mobile programmatic platform reaches over 420mm users every month, amassing a dataset of over 1 billion mobile behavioral profiles, by combining this reach, dataset and unique tech platform with superior yield optimization with EngageBDR’s premium suite of publisher advertising solutions, we have created a truly global one-stop-shop mobile solution for publishers that is unparalleled in the world when it comes to maximizing inventory yields.”

Alec Andronikov, AdCel CEO

 

Frequently, mobile app publishers operate numerous apps that deliver a wide range of utilities, entertainment, games and other services. One of the difficulties experienced by app publishers is earning significant revenue from their particular application. AdCel enables their ad inventory to be aggregated, thereby delivering a much larger audience to advertisers. In turn, it empowers app publishers to capture much more significant advertising revenue, all optimized within one platform. Existing customers of AdCel include many of the world’s largest tech companies, including Google, Twitter, Amazon and Unity.

 

“AdCel team is very excited to join engage:BDR family – and instantly give mobile publishers even more benefits in their ads monetization strategies. Strong programmatic tech and audience-based mediation will create truly one-stop mobile publisher solution. This synergy will add more transparency to the advertiser/publisher chain, so all parties can achieve their goals more efficiently.”

Denys Kravchenko, AdCel CTO
