Investment Portfolio Update

Pires Investments plc (AIM: PIRI), the investment company focused on next generation technology, is pleased to provide an update on developments relating to companies within its investment portfolio that Pires is invested in directly and indirectly, through its investment in Sure Valley Ventures ("SVV").

Admix

Admix, the leading In-Play monetisation company that bridges the gap between gaming content and brands, has announced that it is merging with LandVault Inc ("LandVault") ( https://landvault.io/ ), a builder of virtual experiences in metaverse worlds aimed at attracting people into blockchain and metaverse ecosystems, in order to enter into Web3.

By merging with LandVault, Admix aims to become a go-to service provider for major intellectual property holders and brands, enabling large companies across all industries to enter the metaverse and be monetised with its in-game advertising technology. The combined company, which will be known as LandVault, will be able to access the US$25 million in growth capital from Admix's Series B round in October 2021. Samuel Huber, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Admix, will remain as Chief Executive Officer of the combined business.

Ahead of the launch of 'Engage Link', its Metaverse offering for enterprises, expected in Q4 2022, ENGAGE XR has announced that HTC and The Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University are confirmed as launch partners. These world-leading organisations will use ENGAGE's Metaverse platform to build and design its own MetaWorlds, enabling them to interact with stakeholders, host business dealings and virtual events within the ENGAGE XR ecosystem.

The company also announced that it had secured a significant customer renewal with South Korean company, D'Carrick Co Ltd, which has signed a new contract worth EUR300,000 over three years. This extends a successful three-year relationship, initially worth EUR70,000 per annum. Other ENGAGE customers include Kia, which is hosting a virtual car launch event in its own MetaWorld this Summer, Uniper, an energy corporation with a EUR6.7bn market cap, and Natixis, a French corporate and investment bank.

"We are delighted to note recent progress and positive momentum across the Pires investment portfolio.

"Admix combining with LandVault presents an excellent opportunity for the company to enter into Web3 and provide a go-to offering for major brands looking to capitalise on the metaverse.

"We are also pleased to note the launch of Low6's new B2B white-label gamification platform which enables the business to further increase the reach of its iGaming products to some of the largest names in sports, gaming, media and mobile technology.

"Lastly, ENGAGE XR's announcement demonstrates the continued developments at an exciting time for the business. Naming world-leading organisations, such as HTC and The Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University, as partners ahead of the launch of ENGAGE Link later this year highlights the disruptive potential that the company's products offer to customers."

The Directors of the Company are responsible for the release of this announcement.
