The firm delivers its services across three divisions;

Inflexion points:

  • In July, Tremor announced the launch of its Connected TV (CTV) advertising offering in what it said was an “important milestone” for the group. The company said CTV would allow advertisers to deliver videos across all screens in real-time and reach TV audiences on second-screen devices such as smartphones and tablets
  • In June, the firm, then known as Taptica, said it expected to deliver in the region of US$20mln in annualised cost savings and synergy benefits in the current financial year and that RhythmOne is expected to make a meaningful contribution to the bottom line next year
