FIVE is acquired by LINE

Ever since we started our journey, we pursued the sperb mobile video experience.

After launching FIVE’s mobile video advertising platform in 2014, we’ve been working on extending our video reach to the largest 60M unique users in Japan, over 1,800+ strategic publisher partners, and 400+ quality customers.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to join LINE corporation in order to deploy our product at scale and close the distance between users and customers.

“Making awesome video experience with technology & creativity” – our mission & priority won’t be changed. The current FIVE products and SDK remain available. With LINE, we will be supplying more extensive user coverage and buying options to our customers, and more powerful monetization opportunities to our publishers across many countries.

Now, the two major mobile platforms have gotten together. We are excited to share more about what we’ll be working on together in the coming months.

All the best,
Keisuke Kanno, Co-founder&CEO of FIVE Inc.
