24i Media realises strong growth globally
March 15, 2018
24i Media, an Internet TV app developer for the world’s top media companies, has announced yet another year of record growth. The success in 2017 has been driven by signing up more than 20 new customers, including leading brands such as Tennis Channel, Entel, EdgeTV and RTE.
2017 was a strong year for 24i Media, both in terms of growth in new customers and new partners, but also in staff and revenue, with a whopping 70% growth. This powerful momentum will continue in 2018, as the company is taking new strategic initiatives to bolster its technology innovation and global growth.
“The acquisition of the Siemens CVC front-end team to support the increasing demands for our services is a big success and saw its full value in 2017. The team is now fully integrated into 24i and we’re looking forward to significantly expand our team in 2018,” said Hans Disch, Chief Strategy Officer at 24i. “With the new strategic initiatives and opportunities that we’re working on, we’ll continue to combine our very strong autonomous growth with targeted acquisitions, to be better equipped than ever to take the front-seat in technology innovation in the OTT industry.”
Underscoring demand for its flexible and proven technology, Amsterdam based 24i has witnessed a 282% revenue growth over the last three years. In 2017 the company grew with about 70%. With this growth 24i also secured a spot on the prestigious Inc.5000 list of the fastest growing companies in EMEA in 2017. The list, seen as a ‘celebration of innovation’ and a distinguished ‘network of entrepreneurial leaders’, honors private companies that have achieved significant overall staff and revenue growth over a three-year period.
“Making the Inc.5000 list is a testament to 24i’s ability to innovate and introduce new solutions to a market that is constantly evolving at an unbelievable pace. I am thrilled and proud of the 24i Team which has grown in leaps and bounds in talent and has continued to provide unparalleled service to our ever-increasing number of forward-thinking clients across the globe,” said Martijn Van Horssen, 24i’s Chief Executive Officer. “We feel great about our set up for 2018 and our ability to continue delivering record-setting results and our plans and ambitions to keep surprising the industry with technology innovation.”
The company also significantly expanded its client base across both broadcasters, media companies and operators, including signing recognised corporates and brands, such as Sinclair Broadcasting Group, NPO, RTE, Entel, Globo and the Tennis Channel. 24i strengthened its position in all geographic markets, especially EMEA, North America and Latin America.
24i Media’s growth continues to be fueled by strong market demand for their proven technology framework for the development and deployment of leading Internet TV app solutions.
