LET’S BE CLEAR

ABOUT FEES, ABOUT SUPPLY, ABOUT QUALITY

PubMatic has a longstanding commitment to transparency, and to being open about how digital ad space is traded and about how our own business works. This is absolutely the right approach. We all need to be up front and helpful in addressing our industry’s challenges and educating the market.

Yet confusion in the space is clouding reality. Our efforts, and the efforts of others around us, are not cutting through the noise, and our sector is becoming fundamentally tied to perceptions of a lack of transparency – about fees, about where and how ads appear, about our methodologies, about how bidding occurs, about the very way in which we do business.
