To all stakeholders
In 2020, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the advertising industry, CyberAgent achieved a new record sales. Our TV & video entertainment medium, ABEMA, which launched in April 2016, has also built up a viewership under its "Check ABEMA First" concept, achieving over 59 million downloads in just four and a half years of operation. Given the current circumstances, we have diversified our peripheral businesses, including online live entertainment delivery. And we strongly feel that ABEMA has excellent media potential.
Since our founding in 1998, we have followed our vision "to create the 21st century's leading company" by continuing to expand business in the rapidly evolving internet industry. Following in the footsteps of our internet advertising and game businesses, we will continue to develop media business centered on ABEMA as a pillar of our mid-to-long-term strategy. While at the same time, creating social value through supporting sports, fostering the next generation of engineers and other initiatives, and pursuing sustainable management sets us for new growth stages. Thank you for your continued support of CyberAgent.
