Rubicon Project Named A Top Global Platform For Inventory Quality
Global Seller Trust Index Recognizes Leaders in Advertising Automation With Strengths in Domain Quality, Viewability, Audience Engagement and Inventory Quality
LOS ANGELES – December 10, 2014 –Rubicon Project (NYSE: RUBI), a leader in advertising automation with one of the industry’s largest independent real-time trading platforms for the buying and selling of advertising, today was named one of the top global platforms on Pixalate’s Global Seller Trust Index – the industry’s first comprehensive RTB quality rating standard list. This recognition comes just one month after Quantcast named Rubicon Project as having the largest worldwide reach of any advertising platform – an unduplicated audience of more than half a billion people, approximately 20% of the world’s online population.
The new quality rating standard by Pixalate provides additional insight into the strength of Rubicon Project’s leadership position with respect to exceptional inventory and domain quality, least amount of masked inventory, leadership position in viewability, and safeguards against poor inventory quality. Ranking as one of the Top 3 global sellers, the list recognizes Rubicon Project’s commitment and investment in creating a clean, high-quality marketplace as well as its superior network of seller domains.
“Engineering world-class technology that addresses the needs and concerns of our premium sellers has been a core focus for Rubicon Project,” said Gregory R. Raifman, President, Rubicon Project. “Receiving this recognition highlights the work we do each and every day to ensure a world-class, well-lit and quality environment exists for our buyers and sellers globally.”
“We are pleased to announce the Global Seller Trust Index today as a significant step forward in bringing transparency to the programmatic industry,” said Jalal Nasir, Founder and CEO, Pixalate. “Sellers that demonstrate investment in a high quality marketplace should be recognized. We congratulate Rubicon on achieving a top tier ranking in the Pixalate Global Seller Trust Index.”

Pixalate will release the Global Seller Trust Index report of the top 20 performers from more than 400 active RTB sellers to the public monthly on its Global Seller Trust Index Trends website.
