The companys omnichannel advertising platform enables publishers to monetize across all auction types and formats including CTV, desktop display, video, audio, and mobile.

We are excited to have over 600 people across 15 countries come together as Magnite as we start the incredible journey ahead, said Michael Barrett, President & CEO of Magnite. Uniting our rich technology, experience and partnerships under the Magnite brand brings us closer to being an essential partner for publishers and buyers.

And because the company doesnt own any media interests, it can provide unconflicted guidance to publishers paired with exceptional client service. In addition, Magnite makes it easy for buyers to connect efficiently to global audiences across every channel and format.

The company also announced that its ticker symbol on the Nasdaq Global Select Market will change to “MGNI” from “RUBI.” Trading under the new ticker symbol will begin at the open of the market on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. No actions are needed from the company’s current stockholders relative to the ticker symbol change.
