Stephan Beringer, CEO of Mirriad, said: 'In 2020 we provided operational stability during a challenging period, with adverse effects of the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the wider advertising and content industries. We have been able to reduce our own costs through prudent management and also drive additional revenue, underlining our commitment to building long-term shareholder value.

'Mirriad is now well placed to benefit from the expected advertising sector recovery in the second half of this year. Thanks to our technology's ability to create new revenue opportunities whilst addressing established consumer aversion to interruptive advertising, we can offer more in-content opportunities to a rising number of advertisers and agencies, showing a clear pathway to scale in 2021 and beyond.

'The industry increasingly recognises the fantastic results our format delivers as we further develop the protected Mirriad technology that will ultimately define the in-content advertising space. With these factors considered, we are confident about the future growth of our proposition and business.'
