TALi Digital Limited (ASX:TD1)
Leading digital health business TALi Digital Limited has signed an investment agreement and an advertising contract with Brand Capital International.
Brand Capital International (BCI) is the strategic investment division of The Times Group.
The Times Group is a leading media company in India, reaching more than 550 million people via TV, Mobile App, website, and print media. The marketing and advertising campaign with the Times Group has started ahead of schedule.
The advertising and communication plan would highlight the benefits of TALi's cognitive performance tools for the health and education of children 3-8 years of age.
The campaign would also see the Times Group spruiking the availability of TALi's tools on App stores. The Company highlighted that the direct-to-consumer edition of TALi DETECT and TALi TRAIN has been approved and is available on Google Play Store. In India, more than 95% of customers have Android devices and have access to the Play Store.
TD1 updated that it would receive 100% of the revenue from product downloads in the Indian market after the deduction of transaction fees.
The first phase of the launch would concentrate on digital campaigns with the Times Group of India. Later, the campaign would be on print media and radio. TALi continues to advance commercial alliance openings in other markets like the USA and Asia.

The Company signed an MoU with Saint Gobain Ceramics & Plastics, Inc for the constant product evaluation, product development and possible future commercial supply of the Company's products to Saint Gobain.

It also requires a constant alliance between the parties across the product portfolio for possible application within a range of Saint Gobain Global business units that focus on surface conditioning, battery materials, as well as crystals in multiple emerging markets.
Further, the MoU requires examination of the products and additional technical collaboration involving the provision to share intellectual property on future innovative products, developed together with Saint Gobain using the proprietary aluminium purification technology of A4N.
