World Economic Forum Chooses Amobee as Technology Pioneer 2010

GENEVA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - The World Economic Forum today announced that Amobee has been selected as a Technology Pioneer 2010 for its accomplishments as an innovator of the highest caliber, and whose mobile advertising technologies and business model will have a deep impact on business and society. Amobee is a global provider of mobile advertising solutions.

Amobee was evaluated by 58 global technology experts appointed by the World Economic Forum and has been recognized for its new unified media system enabling the funding of mobile content and communications through advertising revenues. To be selected by the Forum, a company must be involved in the development of life-changing technology innovations and have the potential for a long-term impact on business and society. In addition, it must demonstrate visionary leadership and show signs of being a long-standing market leader with proven technology.

Previous Technology Pioneers include Google, Infosys, Mozilla Corporation, and Amyris Biotechnologies. This is the 11th anniversary of the Technology Pioneers program of the Forum, which aims to recognize companies at the forefront of technology and innovation.

"We are proud to have won this award recognizing Amobee's technology as it underscores our efforts to deliver game-changing solutions to the mobile advertising industry," said Zohar Levkovitz, co-founder and CEO of Amobee. "We remain committed to serving the mobile needs of global operators, as well as top brands and media buyers that are reaching out to mobile users with targeted advertising."

"Entrepreneurship, innovation and technology have always played a key role in shaping and improving society. This proves to be even more the case during times of crisis, similar to the one the world faced this past year during the biggest recession in almost a century. New companies are already planting the seeds of recovery and the next wave of growth and progress," said André Schneider, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of the World Economic Forum.
