It was only a (brief) matter of time once it cleared the FTC's final approval
last week (with a special thanks to Apple's iAd
): Google is now the proud owner of one AdMob. According to Product Management VP Susan Wojcicki, the company is now integrating all the teams and products together. Full details are at the Official Google Blog, and after the break, check out an email purportedly from AdMob CEO Omar Hamoui.
As you may have already heard, our deal to be acquired by Google has just closed. We are all excited to start working with the team at Google. While we are still working to figure out a lot of the details, I want to assure you of two things:
Our advertiser and publisher partners continue to be our top priority
Our advertiser and publisher partners are our #1 priority now as you have always been. Everyone at AdMob, including our senior executives, sales, marketing, product, engineering, business development, and support teams remain 100% focused on continuing to provide the products and service you have come to expect from us.
We are committed to delivering a smooth integration process
We are starting to work with Google to bring our products and teams together, and collaborate on building new products and features for our customers. Because this will take some time, we will continue to work with you on a business-as-usual basis for the time being. We are committed to making this integration happen as seamlessly as possible and will keep you updated as we bring our businesses together.
We appreciate your business and look forward to working with you in 2010 and beyond. We'll be in touch again soon as we have more details to share - stay tuned.
