An intense price war has been waging between performance ad networks in China; but competing based on price is unsustainable and will not prevent advertisers from jumping ship.
Richard O’Connell, general manager of MobAir’s China operations, observes that some ad networks in the country have been willing to lose money on deals in a bid to win big deals and reflect a positive showing for investors.
