Providing sophisticated in-app ad verification tools to combat invalid traffic, support quality and improve performance for mobile and CTV publishers and advertisers

TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2023 -- Sabio Holdings Inc. (TSXV: SBIO; OTCQX: SABOF) (the "Company" or "Sabio"), a leading provider of connected TV ("CTV")/over-the-top ("OTT") advertising platforms validated by performance, is pleased to advise that through its wholly-owned US operating subsidiary, Sabio Inc., it has re-engaged DoubleVerify ("DV"), a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data, and analytics. Sabio Inc. engaged DV for the benefit of its subsidiary Vidillion Corp ("Vidillion"), a U.S. based streaming TV supply-side platform (SSP) and technology provider for content creators, and is utilizing DV Marketplace Suite Quality Insights. First initiated on June 09, 2022, Sabio Inc.'s engagement with DV is through an annual renewable agreement in which DV provides its measurement and reporting capabilities. This is a renewal of the agreement.

With global CTV advertising spend continuing to see double digit growth1, publishers and advertisers need confidence in their media investments. Through this engagement, DV provides fraud detection and viewability reporting for CTV and mobile campaigns, including DV's Fully On-Screen measurement solution, ensuring quality and taking steps to protect advertisers against fraudulent and invalid web traffic. The engagement also enables Vidillion to segment and optimize inventory across their network, maximizing performance and value for advertisers.

"The engagement with DV further solidifies our commitment to an effective, safe, and transparent CTV ecosystem for both advertisers and publishers. It's not enough to identify invalid traffic, it's important that we make optimizations to minimize transactions on fraudulent impressions across our network," said Jon Stimmel, Chief Growth Officer of Sabio.

With the growth of CTV as an increasingly vital component of media strategies, the industry faces challenges with measuring quality. DV has a comprehensive set of solutions tailored to CTV environments and is a leader in detection and prevention of new fraud schemes across all inventory types and devices.

Last year, Vidillion announced it received TAG's Certified Against Fraud Seal, a cross-industry accountability program intended to create trust within the digital ad and content recommendation industries, and remains dedicated to combating fraud. Vidillion is enhancing its own supply side offerings with DV's capabilities. Vidillion is laser-focused on making sure all traffic entering its ecosystem is held to a high standard and works with publishers to tackle any issues as they arise. Leveraging DV's measurement around viewability and fraud adds another tool towards the mission of fostering a high quality and secure advertising environment.

Vidillion's technology stack includes proprietary tools for ad break optimization, server-side ad insertion ("SSAI"), content recognition, and dynamic ad insertion ("DAI") with demand-side partner integrations. These tools enable publishers to quickly and easily find new ways to monetize their Streaming TV inventory by allowing advertisers to precisely target viewers based on content, context, usage, and geography.
