Tal Hayek, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AcuityAds, commented on the results.

“While total company revenue was lower than the prior year due to salesforce transition issues, we continue to see growing adoption of illumin-particularly in self-serve usage. Our strategic initiatives to grow illumin self-serve revenues have already begun to pay off as these revenues grew 94 per cent sequentially, even as illumin self-serve clients grew 24 per cent. This sequential growth supports our belief that illumin’s tremendous ease of use naturally lends itself to self-serve operation and we expect to see continued growth.”
