AdBrite are ceasing operation on Feb 1st, 2013

In an email sent to publishers and advertisers they indicate they are closing down as of February 1st 2013.

Here is the email in its entirety:

Dear adBrite Publisher,

Over the last few weeks, adBrite and its management have been evaluating the go-forward plan for the business. Given market conditions and certain financial liabilities, in working with our lenders, we have decided to cease operations on Feb 1, 2013.

This is a difficult decision for all of us at adBrite. However, after much deliberation this seems to be the best course of action despite the impact it will have on all the employees, clients and partners who helped build this business. There will be a team in place as needed to assist with winding down.
Thank you for being part of the adBrite community.

The adBrite Team

AdBrite was originally founded as Marketbanker.com, the site was relaunched as AdBrite in 2004 as an advertising network and then in 2008 as an ad exchange.

So after 9 years they are closing their doors. It’s a sad time for longstanding client of theirs.

There are alternatives but adBrite was very much in the forefront of ad exchange networks for both publishers and advertisers.

Farewell adBrite.

Thanks for reading
