  • The stock price of Alfi, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALF) increased by over 13% pre-market today. This is why it happened.

The stock price of Alfi, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALF) – an AI enterprise SaaS platform company – increased by over 13% pre-market today. Investors are responding positively to the company announcing it has partnered with a major programmatic exchange called Vistar Media to provide advertisers and agencies programmatic access to Alfi’s impactful inventory and to enable complex ad delivery across all campaigns.

Alfi will be joining the programmatic exchange via Vistar’s supply-side platform, thus allowing advertisers to purchase inventory exactly as all other digital media is transacted via an open exchange or private marketplace deal. And Alfi will also be utilizing Vistar’s ad serving technology to power a sophisticated advertising planning, buying, and reporting experience. 

Alfi’s intelligent ad platform offers marketers a robust reporting interface, allowing them to learn more about how their target audiences interact with ad content. And delivery of ad campaigns can be targeted based on impressions, ad spots in a loop, frequency of ads and the impact of ads purchased via Alfi’s software.

As commerce becomes increasingly digitized and advertisers use technology to better reach their target audiences, the value of programmatic advertising will increase and it is set to surpass $150 billion by the end of 2021. This enables Alfi’s advertising inventory – which will reach an excess of $500 million before the end of 2022 – to join forces with the enormous demand for programmatic advertising from Vistar’s marketplace.
