Digital Media and Entertainment Chief Sandy Grushow Joins Adaptive Media's Advisory Board

Grushow Brings Unparalleled Expertise in Areas of Content, Advertising and Technology

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Multi-channel audience and content monetization company, Adaptive Medias, Inc. (OTCQB: ADTM), a leader in programmatic advertising across mobile, video and online display, announced today that Sandy Grushow has joined the company as an Advisory Board member, providing assistance in areas of strategy and business development. Grushow's expertise in media, technology and marketing, as Adaptive continues to build world-class solutions that sit at the intersection of content and advertising, is a major addition to the company.

Grushow currently runs his own strategic advisory practice, providing critical counsel and creative guidance to both early stage and mature businesses in traditional and digital media and technology. Most recently, Grushow was named to the Board of Governors of the Weather Company. Prior to starting his own practice, he served as Chief Content Officer at MediaLink, where he worked closely with and provided counsel to numerous digital content creators, distributors and brands. Before moving into the world of digital media and technology, Grushow spent twenty-four years at Fox, helping to build the new broadcast network from its earliest days prior to being named Chairman of Fox Television Entertainment, where he oversaw both the broadcast network and the TV studio.

"We are ecstatic to have someone with Sandy's credentials join our Advisory Board to help guide our growth in several key areas," Adaptive Media's CEO Qayed Shareef said. "Sandy's experience is important to us as we continue to deliver the right solutions aimed at the digital advertising market across all channels and all devices, with the goal to target TV advertisers and content providers who are looking for increased visibility and efficiency."

According to market research firm eMarketer, the worldwide digital advertising market is expected to grow to $173 billion by 2017. Adaptive Media sees major opportunities in areas of online display, mobile and video channels as cross device ad targeting becomes essential for marketers. Currently, the company serves publishers through its Real-Time Bidding (RTB) platform that drives inventory monetization for agencies and advertisers through video, mobile, rich media and display channels.

A key initiative for Adaptive Media in 2014 is to provide solutions for the TV industry through digital advertising and content monetization. Powered by its custom video player, Adaptive Media possesses the reach and technological capabilities to deliver the content and key advertising metrics that are lacking in today's video solutions. Shareef sees a significant opportunity to bridge the gap between the legacy experience and what can be provided through digital channels, and Grushow's experience will be important in guiding that effort.

"I'm excited to start working with Adaptive Media and look forward to helping them develop innovative video solutions," said Grushow. "Qayed and his team should be very proud of what they've been able to accomplish in just under a year, and I am excited about their strategy and what they are on track to achieve in 2014."
