Independent sell-side advertising platform Magnite has launched today following the merger between Rubicon Project and Telaria in April 2020.
Magnite unifies Rubicon Project’s expertise as a scaled programmatic exchange and Telaria’s leading CTV capabilities to better connect publishers with thousands of buyers and brands. The company’s omnichannel advertising platform enables publishers to monetize across all auction types and formats including CTV, desktop display, video, audio, and mobile.
“We are excited to have over 600 people across 15 countries come together as Magnite as we start the incredible journey ahead,” said Magnite President & CEO Michael Barrett.
“Uniting our rich technology, experience and partnerships under the Magnite brand brings us closer to being an essential partner for publishers and buyers. Now, more than ever, our industry needs an independent alternative to the walled gardens. At Magnite, we believe that collaboration is the path to a thriving ecosystem that works for everyone.”
Magnite’s commitment to community-driven, open solutions empowers publishers to manage their inventory and revenue on their terms. And because the company doesn’t own any media interests, it can provide unconflicted guidance to publishers paired with exceptional client service. In addition, Magnite makes it easy for buyers to connect efficiently to global audiences across every channel and format.
The company also announced that its ticker symbol on the Nasdaq Global Select Market will change to “MGNI” from “RUBI.” Trading under the new ticker symbol will begin at the open of the market on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. No actions are needed from the company’s current stockholders relative to the ticker symbol change.
Magnite is dedicated to improving the vibrancy and longevity of the advertising ecosystem. Collaborating with leading publishers, global brands and buyers, and technology peers is central to that effort. The company is pleased to launch with the support of a variety of industry leaders:
