Telefonica and GSI Capital Partners Announce Creation of Axonix

Telefonica reinforces its leading position in the global mobile advertising market, announcing the creation of Axonix - a new company with the financial backing of Telefonica and affiliates of Blackstone's GSO Capital Partners (GSO). Axonix will be powered by technology acquired by Telefonica and Blackstone's GSO Capital that underpinned the programmatic advertising platform, MobClix. This technology has a four year history of leading the market and, through the creation of Axonix, propels Telefonica into the fast-growing real-time advertising space (RTB) alongside only a small selection of other major technology companies. The newly formed company will have a completely new executive management team and will operate globally with its headquarters in London. Whilst being independently run, it will benefit from the financial credibility, advertising industry expertise and global reach of its two shareholders, Telefonica and Blackstone's GSO. Axonix is a fully transparent, programmatic marketplace that enables mobile publishers to achieve the higher possible prices for their inventory whilst adhering to any controls and selling rules they define. Axonix will initially offer a self-service, mobile ad exchange platform to advertisers and publishers globally but with a specific focus on US and Europe, plus Latin America where Telefonica has enormous local scale. Over 100 demand partners are already integrated into the Axonix platform. The new real-time trading capabilities will complement Telefonica's existing mobile display, messaging, sponsored services and other advertising business units, further enhancing Telefonica's already strong advertising proposition that offers brands scaled audiences, innovative data-driven targeting options and impactful ad formats. The use of Telefonica's unique audience data, anonymized and aggregated, through a programmatic trading platform will enable Axonix to deliver improved ad relevancy and performance, providing unrivalled value and results for its advertiser and publisher customers.
