China's Largest DSP, iPinYou, Completes $20 million Series B Led by CBC

BEIJING, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iPinYou, the largest DSP (Demand-Side Platform) in China, today announced a US$20 million round of financing led by CBC (China Broadband Capital) to support the company's hyper-growth trajectory. Participants in the round include Vangoo Investment Partners, a Japan-based VC, and its A round investor Forward Capital. The proceeds will be used to upgrade the company's product, technology and executive and staff recruitment.

iPinYou has the most advanced DSP technologies in China and can help advertisers access all the major exchanges, achieving high cost-efficiency for advertisers. During the past few years, iPinYou has experienced year-over-year revenue growth of over 300%. The company serves over 200 leading brands in IT, Financial service, Auto, FMCG, Ecommerce and Travel.

Mrs. Xiaonan Huang, CEO and Co-founder of iPinYou, said: "We are very glad that after more than 4 years of continuous investment in technology and data, iPinYou has grown into the largest local DSP in China. In a period of high-growth for iPinYou, this new financing enables us to invest substantially in innovation, technology and people. Meanwhile, the expertise and resources of CBC Capital and Vangoo Investment Partners in the cloud computing, digital media and advertising industries will accelerate our ability to best serve our clients."

We hope that our resources can further help to cement iPinYou's established industry leadership."
