Sankei Digital Renews Exclusive Strategic Partnership With Teads Japan To Drive Business Growth

TOKYO, July 28, 2021 – Today, global media platform, Teads K.K. (Japan Branch: Minato-ku, Tokyo) and SANKEI DIGITAL Inc. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) have announced the signing of their exclusive strategic partnership to deliver inRead advertising.

Sankei has been integrated with Teads for over 7 years, leveraging their suite of publisher tools and user-friendly formats, notably inRead video and display. The partnership has continued to develop and, in 2021, a long-term contract to exclusively deliver inRead ads to in-article placements across Sankei’s titles was signed. This next stage looks to strengthen and deepen the relationship, as Sankei looks to continue to promote higher value initiatives and new products to help the company further drive business performance.

The partnership covers a raft of titles with Sankei’s portfolio, including The Sankei News, iza, Sanso, zakzak and SankeiBiz.

Hiroshi Miyamoto, Executive officer Business Management, Sankei Digital said:

We established an exclusive, strategic partnership for multiple years with Teads to monetize outstream video advertising across SANKEI DIGITAL Inc’s media. We very much understand Teads’ first-class creativity and technology enables users to enjoy interactive & comfortable experiences through inRead formats. Under the acceleration of our digital transformation, we hope that this initiative will realize even more fulfilling video ads, which will be highly satisfying for advertisers and useful information for users.

Eric Shih, Chief Supply Officer, Teads said:

We are honored and proud to renew our long-standing, 7 year partnership with Sankei, one of the largest and most premium news and digital publishers in Japan. We continue to execute on our global goal of “empowering media” in 2021, by funding quality journalism and premium publishers with substantial advertising revenue. Our long-term relationship with Sankei is a testament to Teads not only as a trusted partner but also as a core monetization provider. We look forward to further collaboration with Sankei to support the growth in their digital business and opening new opportunities with our Teads for Publishers Suite.
