XTD Resets Its Course, Officially Rebrands As Motio

We’re extremely excited to announce that Motio has launched today, the new name for XTD, marking the next stage in our evolution.

From today, Out-of-Home media company XTD has officially changed its name to Motio Limited (ASX:MXO); and we’re looking forward to solidifying our place as a leader in the Place Based media and Location Intelligence sector.

The change was approved by shareholders at our Annual General Meeting last Friday, the name change supports our diversification strategy and the evolving of our core business of Place Based Media. Motio’s growth ambitions have been well documented this year – launching a market facing media company of the same name led by Jack Mortlock, accelerating the combination of media, content, customer experience, data and technology integration to develop and grow our environments.

Our CEO and Managing Director of Motio, Adam Cadwallader, said the name Motio represented movement and pays a genuine respect to the people who are committed to its growth.

“The hard work and dedication of our small, but very committed team over the past twelve months revealed clear demand for advertisers to invest in our sectors for relevance, brand safety and targeting layered with a genuine thirst from landlords looking for more than a cheque or some heat maps from their Wi-Fi provider,” he said.

“We are creating scaled media and data led micro-environments in the Sports and Leisure, Health and Wellness and On-The-Go Retail, replicating the same tech and approach as ‘smart cities’ or ‘precincts’ with scale, customisation and flexibility.”

“Whilst these elements are operating independently today, we are pioneering the ability to bring these parts together providing intelligence to our property partners, advertisers and importantly making our environment customer focussed and friendly.”

Motio now owns digital place-based networks across Australia in Health, Sports and Leisure, represents Swift Media’s Health & Wellness network, and Engagis’ Caltex Petro Retail network.

We also operate Digital-Out-Of-Home content company, Enormity and have recently announced the development of its data and analytics platform, CLIX.

Additionally on the ASX, we last week closed our share price at $0.073, a 332% Year On Year share price increase (13/11/20 vs 13/11/20 $0.022) – and a 507% Market Capitalisation increase to date.

The business also had a 164% EBITDA increase Year On Year (FY2020 vs FY2019).

Case Study: Standing With Diabetes Sufferers During COVID-19

This year has thrown up a tonne of challenges – at all of us, in so many different ways. And for sufferers of diabetes, COVID-19 has manufactured some particularly tough hurdles.

So to kick off our MotioHealth network back in July, we teamed up with Diabetes Australia and their agency Scout, to launch a national campaign on the illness. With 1.2 million Australians diagnosed with diabetes in 2018, this was something we really cared about.

In a TVC adapted campaign run during National Diabetes Week, the campaign aimed to show how sufferers face so many day-to-day decisions due to the condition.

Add in a global pandemic, and an already stressful life becomes even more pressurised. An increased risk of COVID-19 related illness meant a deeper struggle with mental health issues and challenges, for those diagnosed with diabetes.

So the focus for us was to let our MotioHealth audience know just how tough people with diabetes were going, and that the condition really is relentless.

Our General Manager, Jack Mortlock, noted how the campaign was important to get into venues that would appreciate the message.

“This partnership is a great example of Motio’s vision to help Australian organisations drive better health outcomes through effective communications,” he said.

“Especially in trusted environments, where there are multiple moments of influence.”

Diabetes Australia’s Policy and Programs Director, Taryn Black, was also enthused by the campaign – saying it was the perfect campaign to launch MotioHealth in practices and venues around Australia. We couldn’t agree more.

“Scout Frontier and Diabetes Australia is excited to be partnering with Motio for National Diabetes Week in a media first,” she said.

“It’s really fitting that such an important health initiative will be the first campaign to run on Motio’s expansive Health Network within General Practices around Australia.”

Our CEO Adam Cadwallader, also spoke about why the shear scale of MotioHealth was important for the campaign.

“Our network reaches well over three million Australians every month across health and wellness environments, meaning this important campaign is an important boost in fighting one of Australia’s most preventable killers that is so very prevalent in our industry,” he said.

“It was important for us to help support this message however we could, and we’re so thrilled with how we were able to adapt the TVC for our screen.”

We can’t wait to work with other NFPs, charities and organisations promoting important messages that impact so many. Visit Diabetes Australia today to find out more about the illness, and how you can show your support, too.

Welcoming Swift Media To MotioHealth

We’re excited to announce that we’ve today won the national agency and programmatic sales rights to Swift Media’s health and wellbeing screen network.

The three-and-a-half year deal combines our experience in the out-of-home and digital place-based sector with Swift’s 1,400 digital screens at GP centres.

Our CEO, Adam Cadwallader, said the Swift network offers a breadth across the market and provides a high calibre extension to Motio’s value proposition to brands.

“It offers our customer the opportunity to engage with audiences in ultra-long dwell time environments with a combination of relatable content and advertising that informs and entertains,” he said.

“The agreement is well-timed given the emerging recovery in national advertising spend.”

Meanwhile Pippa Leary, CEO of Swift Media said the new partnership was a win for both businesses.

“By combining the networks and leveraging Motio’s proven expertise we look forward to driving accelerated sales growth and improved screen utilisation,”

“Swift will continue to drive local advertising sales, while national advertisers will be able to access Swift’s network through the MotioHealth brand.”

We look forward to working with Swift into the future.
