With high mobile penetration and a predominantly young and affluent captive audience, our presence in Turkey is the logical step towards market leadership in Europe. For both parties this is a value creating deal and we are delighted to further drive the mobile advertising market in Turkey together with Mobilike and its founders Şekip Can Gökalp and Volkan Biçer. They have done a fantastic job to advance mobile advertising in Turkey and position Mobilike as the market leader.”

Turkey is a mobile hotbed and this will offer us the opportunity to solidify our position as a leader in the mobile advertising industry. This is truly the start of something big.”madvertise-infomadvertise is one of the leading mobile audience targeting platforms in Europe, with two billion monthly page impressions.
