REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- August 7, 2014

YuMe, Inc. (NYSE:YUME), a leading provider of digital video brand advertising
solutions, brings accurate cross-screen insights to Toyota and GSK through
support of Nielsen Online Campaign Ratings on desktop, smartphones and
tablets. With the launch of OCR for mobile, YuMe can now measure mobile
audience composition, not just delivery, in addition to enhancing its
cross-screen demographic targeting capabilities, helping brand advertisers
like Toyota and GSK demonstrate the value of both mobile and online media in
reaching their target consumer.

“We recognize the importance of standardized measurement to legitimize mobile
as an effective means in reaching our audience,” says Dionne Colvin-Lovely,
Director, Traditional & Digital Media Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
“Continual innovation is the key to delivering effective advertising, which is
why we are working with YuMe and Nielsen to take cross-screen advertising to
the next level.”

Nielsen data complements YuMe’s first-party survey data in identifying
demographic segments and provides additional scale to brand advertisers like
Toyota and GSK – using the new OCR to measure cross-screen reach, frequency
and ultimately, in-target delivery.

The solution is made possible by the combination of YuMe device-integrated
software development kits, proprietary modeling and data sciences
capabilities, along with close cooperation with Nielsen to measure campaign
results. With the addition of mobile, OCR is now the first and only
measurement suite to offer robust insight into a campaign’s full digital and
cross-platform audience.

“Nielsen is taking an industry-leading step with this product,” says Jayant
Kadambi, CEO & Co-Founder, YuMe. “Once traditional TV brand advertisers begin
to see the impressive brand metrics and ROI increases from target audiences
(including mobile) using a familiar tool, we would expect to see additional
budgets move to cross-screen brand campaigns.”
