Some of the industry’s key trends in the past year include:

  • The mass adoption of Real-Time Bidding (RTB), a technology pioneered by PubMatic;
  • The growth of Private Marketplace (PMP) as the first step in a programmatic direct strategy;
  • The sharp rise of cross-platform solutions to deliver display, mobile, video, and rich media;
  • And the adoption of unified sales channel management solutions to help publishers drive greater revenue and efficiency.

In addition to capitalizing on these industry trends, PubMatic demonstrated unmatched growth for a publisher-focused platform in a variety of areas in 2013, including:

  • Rapid Revenue Growth: Included on Deloitte’s Fast 500 list of rapidly growing companies for the second year in a row, PubMatic’s revenue continued to surge in 2013 with breakout growth.

“To say it has been a big year for us is an understatement,” said PubMatic’s CEO Rajeev Goel. “From products to services to revenue, the numbers speak for themselves, and the story they tell is one of growth that continues at an accelerated pace.”

With programmatic platforms becoming more and more a staple of the advertising business for both buyers and sellers, PubMatic is uniquely positioned to answer this growing demand with both technological and service solutions.
