COLOGNE — At the recent DMEXCO advertising conference, mobile real-time bidding exchange Nexage told Beet.TV mobile media were “still in the early ages”. Today, the company took a step forward, by agreeing to be acquired by mobile ad group Millennial Media for $107.5 million.
Announcing the deal, which MediaPost also reported, Millennial says it hopes to “create a full-stack solution that enables us to open the flow of impressions, operate a leading independent exchange, and maximize the yield for our publishers”.
At DMEXCO, Nexage’s Europe MD Todd Tran told Beet.TV in this video interview: “The biggest misconception in the market is that people are on the go while they’re on their mobile devices. The biggest chunk of usage is at home.
“There are long-form videos being consumed at home or the office or in dead time. We do expect the smartphone to be the dominant screen.”
