2016 has been a crazy year with the growth of header bidding, ad block usage and the drop in Google’s share of publishers’ ad inventories. Things have definitely been shaken up last year and as a result two major bankruptcies have occurred. While Say Media technically isn’t bankrupt, they seem pretty close according to many publishers that used to run them and still have not been paid by them. Mode Media used to be worth over $1 billion and is now bankrupt. Publishers are unsure if they’ll ever receive a penny from Mode Media’s unpaid ad revenues.
