and reach their consumers, but influence them with relevant messaging
that builds upon interactions and prior messaging exposure. By including
first-party, people-based data within our programmatic media buying
technology, we expect to deliver higher performing branding campaigns

we’ve partnered with Drawbridge to leverage their Connected Consumer
Graph® and ensure we have critical data underpinning our
solution that allows us to connect audiences across PC, mobile, and
connected TV.”

The Drawbridge Connected Consumer Graph includes more than 1.3 billion
consumers across more than 3.3 billion devices – representing 75% of the
