Mehta adds, "The money will also be used to enhance targeting and video advertising capabilities of our ad network. Some part of it will be routed to add more panel members to Vizisense.com. " He claims that Vizisense.com currently has a panel size of more than 90,000 Internet users.
The company recently divided its ad network business into two divisions, reveals Mehta.

Mehta refused to comment on the revenue generated by the divisions. However, he states that Komli Media has tie ups with 92 publishers including Facebook and Expedia for Premium Brand Solutions and has already worked with about 150 advertisers. The company also plans to launch its Vizisense.com tool in the Australia market in the near future.
