Pires Investments plc
("Pires" or the "Company")
Admix extends Series A round to raise further
Pires Investments plc (AIM: PIRI), the investment company focused on next generation technology, is pleased to provide an update on its investment in Sure Valley Ventures ("SVV") in relation to Admix, a company within the SVV portfolio, which has developed a programmatic monetisation platform for gaming and other entertainment developers.
Two years after its initial seed funding,
The proceeds of the fundraise are intended to be used to accelerate the development of the Admix's stack for game publishers - it currently caters to c. 300 - and to grow its technology team to 30 developers by the end of 2020.
Admix is positioning itself as the provider of infrastructure for brands to engage with a growing number of gamers, which follows the rapid rise of casual and mobile game players as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pires has a circa 13% interest in SVV. SVV is a venture capital fund focused on investing in the software technology sector with a specific focus on artificial intelligence, the internet of things and immersive technologies.
"Only two years after its initial seed funding, this extension of the funding round announced earlier this summer demonstrates the excitement surrounding Admix's platform for gaming and entertainment developers at the moment. In-play advertising, a substantial and developed market, has seen considerable growth as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and we expect this trend to continue in the coming years.
"We believe that Admix's novel approach to game advertising at scale positions the company perfectly to benefit from the increased demand in this market. The additional funding and the inclusion of notable industry figures participating in this extended fundraise will no doubt allow Admix to continue its rapid growth path and, as such, we look forward to updating the market with Admix's progress in due course."
