New York, NY and Sydney, Australia - May 2, 2013 - DG MediaMind, the leading
independent provider of integrated digital advertising solutions, and Mi9, one
of Australia's leading digital media companies, today announced a strategic
partnership that will allow online advertisers to automatically generate and
deliver customized ads to hundreds of audience segments based on any
combination of geographic, behavioral or demographic data.

The partnership will see Mi9's high-quality, rich data sources from an
ever-growing 14.3 million active accounts - which includes ninemsn homepage
audience data - integrated with DG MediaMind's Smart Versioning technology, to
enable advertisers to micro-target niche consumer groups on an unprecedented
scale. The integration will allow advertisers to serve micro-targeted ads to
lift standard CTR results by an average of 47 percent.

"Dynamic ads mean advertisers can now tailor creative messaging based on Mi9's
extensive dataset, resulting in an infinite number of personalised brand
executions served to the right person, at the right time," said Matt James,
Managing Director of Mi9 Media. "As the first Australian publisher to partner
with DG and offer this new technology to our clients, we're now able to
maximize ROI for our advertisers on a scale not achievable in the past."

"Smart Versioning uses self-learning algorithms to understand which message
gets the best response from each target audience and automatically optimizes
ads accordingly. By working with advertisers to develop creative with multiple
variations appropriate for multiple target audiences, the technology can
really lift results," Carolyn Bollaci, Regional Vice President of ANZ for DG
MediaMind, said.

Smart Versioning allows advertisers to run ad campaigns with multiple
variants. Virtually any variable within an ad can be customized to the
consumer groups an advertiser wants to reach. The Smart Versioning tool syncs
automatically with Excel or online catalog data via an XML feed so that
product SKUs, price codes, images and more can all become variables in an ad.
Advertisers can also use Smart Versioning to re-target users who visit their
website and leave or abandon items in a shopping cart with ads that encourage
them to pick up where they left off with a discount offer or other incentives.
