Phorm announced on 3 October 2013 that it had launched operationally in China and had commenced a nation-wide opt-in process. The Company is now pleased to announce that it has commenced commercial operations in China and is serving advertisements on a paid basis.


Since launching with TTNET, a subsidiary of Türk Telecom Group, in Turkey in 2012, Phorm has now successfully launched its platform with 5 further ISPs. Accordingly, on a global basis, there are now over 20 million daily users on Phorm's platform.


The Company is also pleased to announce that it has now achieved access to over 80 billion monthly advertising impressions, on a global basis, from its publisher partners.


In terms of revenue generation, campaigns in Turkey are increasing in both size and volume. Gross consolidated revenue in Q4 2013 increased 125% quarter on quarter. Phorm has worked with all of the top 10 advertising agencies in Turkey running campaigns for over 300 local and global brands driven by market leading conversion rates.


The Company currently anticipates revenue to increase significantly as the growth in global user numbers accelerates with the expected launch of operations with new ISPs and in new potential markets.


As previously announced, the Company intends to provide the market with further updates on its key performance indicators (user numbers and revenue) on a quarterly basis which will be reported on a consolidated group basis in line with its current global activities.
