REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PubMatic, the publisher-focused sell-side platform (SSP), today announced a global supply path optimization (SPO) partnership with Sizmek, the largest independent buy-side advertising platform. Sizmek now includes PubMatic in its network of preferred publisher platforms, helping consolidate programmatic ad spend in order to provide agencies and advertisers with more transparent access to premium inventory while eliminating the financial risk of fraudulent traffic.
“PubMatic is a strong partner based on their shared commitment to transparency and quality, superior match rates, and advanced supply shaping technology,” explained Mike Caprio, Chief Growth Officer of Sizmek. “With this partnership, our advertisers experience access to in-demand audiences in brand-safe environments that ultimately improves their return on ad spend.”

At PubMatic, we have invested heavily in delivering quality, brand-safe inventory and efficient infrastructure to our buyers. We are excited that Sizmek is finding value in our platform, and that this partnership helps us extend those benefits to our shared customers,” said Rajeev Goel, Co-Founder and CEO of PubMatic.
"As publishers, we are a proponent of any initiative that increases transparency and fosters a greater partnership between the supply and demand sides of the ecosystem. Additionally, we are always seeking a means to capture more revenue by accessing demand as efficiently as possible. We have a long-standing relationship with PubMatic, and this partnership with Sizmek will be valuable for both of us," said Mike Kisseberth, Chief Revenue Officer at Purch.
