“Our record performance demonstrates PubMatic’s differentiated market position across the digital advertising ecosystem,” said Rajeev Goel, co-founder and CEO at PubMatic. “We are in the midst of an accelerated digital transformation, with consumers everywhere spending more time online as they shift transactions from the physical world to the Internet. PubMatic brings the global infrastructure and scale that publishers need to power data-intensive, real time programmatic ad transactions in order to increase their revenues. We are executing well and growing organically in mobile, digital video, and over the top streaming and connected TV (OTT/CTV). Our buyer supply path optimization relationships are expanding, and we are gaining market share in the large and growing global digital advertising market.”

“Our IPO marked a tremendous milestone for PubMatic. Over the last 14 years, we’ve built an incredible company and I’m excited about the opportunities ahead as we seek to continue to grow our market share. I’d like to thank our entire team for their hard work and dedication to our customers, without which our success would not be possible.”

“We delivered impressive year-over-year revenue growth of 64% in the fourth quarter driven by strength across a number of advertising verticals including eCommerce, Technology, Personal Finance and robust omnichannel video growth including OTT/CTV,” said Steve Pantelick, CFO at PubMatic. “Our usage-based business model is highly efficient and built on what we believe are long-term structural advantages, which provide key performance benefits to our customers and increased revenues and profits to us. We continue to focus on growing our market share via new publisher acquisition, existing customer growth, and buy-side spend consolidation.”
