AdColony Selected by AlwaysOn as an AlwaysOn Global 250 Winner

Mobile Video Ad Network Recognized for Creating Technology Innovations for the Global Silicon Valley

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 2, 2013) - AdColony, the only Instant-Play™ HD mobile video ad network, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AlwaysOn Global 250 winners. Inclusion in the AlwaysOn Global 250 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley. AdColony was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

AdColony and the AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's 11th annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 23th, 2013.

This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant economic, political, and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries. Innovation Summit's goal is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global tech industry.

"This year's AlwaysOn Global 250 is seeing an unprecedented shift from desktop to mobile. Concurrently, innovators in the cloud are making it possible for an entirely new generation of application and software solutions to enter the technology marketplace. The enterprise world has endured a long ramp-up to the cloud as well as finally accepting that mobile is here to stay. Now, businesses are demanding even more robust, secure applications with which to run their operations -- anytime, anywhere," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The Global Silicon Valley is rising to this challenge with unfettered enthusiasm, providing business management solutions, IT infrastructure, and elegant, stable applications. Coupled with bleeding-edge consumer adoption of the latest and most powerful media applications, the companies on this year's AlwaysOn Global 250 represent the highest-growth opportunities in today's private company marketplace."

The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.
