The Rubicon Project (RUBI) Frank Addante on Q3 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript | Seeking Alpha
A case study I wrote was highlighted in the Q3 2015 RUBI earnings call: "Ziff Davis International is a leading digital publisher with well-known properties such as IGN and AskMen. Working with Rubicon Project's real-time bidding and orders technology for both mobile and desktop inventory, Ziff Davis International generated a 440% increase year-over-year in total revenue during July of 2015. And despite enjoying massive growth in automation and private marketplaces, Ziff Davis International reported, "no decline in direct sold conversations" since adopting our orders platform. That is a powerful statement supporting our longstanding view that automation makes direct sales efforts far more efficient without cannibalizing revenue."
