Global DOOH Revenue Growth Continues to Accelerate

Global DOOH Revenue Growth Continues to Accelerate

Global Revenue for Digital Place Based Networks Grows 8.4% in 2013; Strong Gains By Transit and Healthcare

STAMFORD, CT — Digital out-of-home (DOOH) media will continue to see double-digit growth, according to the latest forecast by PQ Media. PQ Media’s latest report, Global Digital Out-of-Home Media Forecast 2014-18, found that key indicators for the first-half of 2014 are pointing to accelerated growth for DOOH media of 11.3% by year’s end. DOOH advertising spending has been boosted by a combination of global economic momentum, two sporting mega-events, and increased healthcare, political, and transit advertising spending.

According to PQ Media, both developed and emerging markets stuttered in 2013 due to challenges posed by debt issues, asset bubbles, political tensions and slower economic growth. Digital out-of-home (DOOH) media operators defied the economic and political headwinds worldwide grinding out a 9.3% revenue gain to $8.86 billion in 2013. These issues filtered down to ad-driven media, which also faced tough comparisons with 2012 as a result of the even-year boost from pivotal sporting and political events. Roadside digital billboards and cinema-based video networks, the two largest location categories, were the most affected verticals in 2013.

While global DOOH revenue growth decelerated again in 2013, consumer exposure to DOOH increased at the same rate as in 2012, rising 7.2% to an average of 14 minutes per week. Key growth drivers included new deployments and the expansion of existing DOOH media in high-traffic areas of the world’s largest cities. Average consumer exposure is pacing for accelerated 9.5% growth in 2014, driven by higher engagement with newly launched DOOH networks, particularly during the Winter Olympics in Russia and the World Cup in Brazil.

US DOOH media revenues rose at an accelerated 8.7% in 2013, driven by strong growth in healthcare nets, which benefited from new ad dollars related to the Affordable Care Act. DPN revenues increased 9.5%, as the transit and entertainment categories joined healthcare to offset slower growth in retail and cinema. US DBB revenues were up 7.2% in 2013, the lowest growth rate since PQ Media began tracking DOOH.

Asia-Pacific was the largest of the four global regions in 2013, with aggregate revenues of $3.83 billion, fueled by surging growth in Australia and a strong rebound in Japan. The US remained the world’s largest DOOH market, with $2.37 billion in revenues, followed by China at $1.87 billion. The injection of ad spending and new deployments ahead of the World Cup helped Brazil’s DOOH industry grow at the fastest rate, rocketing 41.9%, followed by Australia at 23.6%.

Global Digital Place Based Media Faces Challenges

PQ Media’s forecast defines DOOH media by two major platforms, digital place-based networks (DPN) and digital billboards and signage (DBB). In addition, the forecast includes more than 10 key indoor/outdoor locations, including roadside, cinema, retail, transit, healthcare and entertainment.

DPNs generated 71% of global DOOH revenues in 2013, growing 8.4% to $6.26 billion, a slight deceleration from 2012. Slow-moving economies weighed on cinema, the largest DPN vertical, resulting in several global markets to post revenue declines. Global cinema networks had the worst year in recent memory produced the weakest years on record, although some slack was picked up by US cinema nets, which had their best year since 2010, as well as strong gains by transit and healthcare DPNs.

Although global revenue is on pace for faster growth in 2014, several challenges continue to shadow DPN operators, including issues related to standardized measurement, planning and buying systems, mobile media integration, and operator consolidation and its impact on network scale.

Mergers and Acquisitions Accelerating

“From the Americas to Asia-Pacific, financial transactions involving DPN operators continued unabated in 2013 and the first-half of 2014,” said Patrick Quinn, CEO, PQ Media. “A diverse group of deals were consummated across the vertical spectrum, including cinema, healthcare, corporate and transit networks, reaffirming that consolidation is accelerating and likely to churn for several more years.”

Among the major M&A deals announced in 2013-14 were National CineMedia’s proposed acquisition of Screenvision; Captivate Network’s planned purchase of the Wall Street Journal Office Network; and Cineplex’s acquisition of EK3 Technologies. Notable equity investments included those involving Captivate, GSTV, Mood Media and Eletromidia. And while the enigmatic RMG Networks went public, the esoteric Focus Media went private.

Mobile and Digital Place Based Media

The rapid growth of mobile media has created the proverbial “frenemy” for DPN operators, as it has become imperative to integrate mobile technology into ad campaigns, particularly those aimed at post-Boomer generations. Driving consumer engagement through mobile interactivity will only become more important with each passing year. DPNs are already being squeezed by mobile, with brands increasingly demanding mobile components to their integrated media campaigns.

“To put this juggernaut into perspective, our research indicates that mobile media revenues from the US alone will be larger than the entire global DOOH industry by year-end 2014,” Quinn said, referring to data from PQ Media’s Global Digital Media & Technology Series.

Digital Billboards Revenue Rebounds

Meanwhile, DBB growth slowed for the second consecutive year in 2013, rising 11.5% to $2.6 billion. The sharp deceleration was mainly due to local government rulings that led to digiboards being shuttered in major metros, such as Los Angeles and Moscow. Nevertheless, OOH operators continue to transition static signs to digital for the simple reason that digisigns generate higher revenues and margins.

In addition, digital screens placed in and around transit hubs, sporting venues and busy roadside locations have become must-buys for brands during major sporting events and political campaigns because they reach on-the-go consumers with a combination of dynamic ads and real-time results. For example, the increasing amount of soft money and third-party groups involved in US elections drove double-digit increases in political ad spending on OOH media in 2010 and 2012. DBBs were a key contributor due to their ability to tail

Programmatic systems have transformed the media buying process, enabling brands and their agencies to simplify and streamline the purchase of online audiences.

ScreenMedia Daily’s report examines the issues surrounding the planning and buying process for Digital Place Based media. Digital Place Based (DPB) media, also known as Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising utilizes strategically placed, networked digital signage displays to reach on-the-go consumers while they are outside their home with highly targeted messages. Digital Place Based networks typically broadcast targeted content along with advertising in venues that have high dwell time. DPB media is part of a larger multi-screen campaign planning ecosystem that includes mobile, desktop and television.

DPB Media Recaptures Lost TV Viewers

DPB Advertising Delivers More Impressions Than Leading Network Primetime Shows

DPB Media Networks Deliver More Ad Impressions Than Leading Network Primetime Shows and Top Basic Cable

NEW YORK, NY — Advertisers looking for greater campaign reach will find the latest DPB Media report by the Digital Place Based Advertising Association (DPAA) of interest. According to the DPAA, Digital Place Based (DPB) networks deliver more ad impressions among 18-49 year-olds on a monthly basis, compared to the top 25 network primetime shows and top 20 basic cable networks. The information is based on an analysis of reported Nielsen data.

“These eye-opening numbers illustrate the ability of DPB networks to extend the reach of television campaigns. Consumers are no longer tethered to their television screens, and so the challenge for advertisers is figuring out how to make sure their video campaigns maintain high levels of effectiveness,” said Barry Frey, president & chief executive officer, DPAA. “As our analysis shows, incorporating DPB media into the video ad mix is one way to recapture those ‘lost’  as well as light TV viewers.”

Scott Marden, vice president, marketing and research, Captivate Network and chairman of DPAA’s research and standards committee, said, “The significant growth in delivery for our industry now provides advertisers the scale they desire, while continuing to provide the quality audience and programming they’ve come to rely on. DPB networks are benefiting nicely from their consistent growth in audience and impressions.”

Digital place based media’s ability to deliver substantial impressions is one of the many topics that will be examined at the DPAA’s 7th annual Video Everywhere Summit on Tuesday, Nov. 4 at Crowne Plaza Times Square in New York.

This year’s event will feature its deepest-ever lineup of ad agency speakers, including  Chris Boothe, chief executive officer, Spark; Martin Cass, chief executive officer, Assembly and MDC Media Partners; Jeff Dow, global executive vice president, digital, data & analytics, SMG; Lori Hiltz, chief executive officer, Havas Media NA; Sallie Mars, senior vice president, chief diversity officer, McCann Worldwide; Anush Prabhu, partner, chief channel planning & investment officer, Deutsch; Jay Sears, senior vice president marketplace development, The Rubicon Project; Stephen Tisdalle, senior vice president, head of brand marketing, Oppenheimer Funds; Antony Young, president, Water Cooler Group; and Shelley Zalis, chief executive officer, IPSOS OTX.

The Video Everywhere Summit is the only conference truly dedicated to video neutral planning, activation, clients’ use of multi-screen strategies and the role of digital place-based in today’s media ecosystem. In addition to the wide range of dynamic panels, presentations and sessions, the Summit will feature an expansive, hands-on exhibit hall that will enable attendees to experience and interact with digital place-based media.

Registration is open at www.videoeverywheresummit2014.com. The Summit will be held in New York the same week as two other major media and advertising events: Ad-Tech New York and Customer Engagement Technology World, both slated for Nov. 5-6.

* Methodology for DPAA Analysis of Reported Nielsen data

DPB Impressions: Monthly impressions for the top 20 DPB networks are for typical ad schedules of Nielsen-measured networks included in various Nielsen On Location Place-Based Reports.  Month is defined as 28 days in these reports.

TV Impressions: Monthly impressions for the top 25 primetime TV programs were calculated by multiplying each program’s average audience by four for monthly impressions and summing across the top 25 TV programs (Nielsen, from deadline.com, May 22, 2014 for full 2013/2014 TV season). Monthly primetime impressions for the top 20 basic cable networks were calculated by multiplying each cable network’s average audience by 28 for monthly impressions and summing across the top 20 networks (Nielsen, from deadline.com, December 29, 2013).

Clear Channel Airports Launches Interactive Charging Station Network

New Digital Out-of-Home Advertising Network Delivers Convenience To Connected Travelers

NEW YORK, NYClear Channel Airports has launched a nationwide digital out-of-home (DOOH) network of interactive charging stations at three of the country’s busiest airports. The new network was developed with Monster Media, an interactive provider of DOOH advertising solutions.

The kiosks allow travelers to charge their smartphones, tablets and laptops, keeping vital lines of communication open to family, friends and business colleagues. The each kiosk features built-in cameras that allow travelers to snap a quick selfie to share with their families, friends and colleagues via social sites. The kiosks are ADA compliant and use embedded touch-enabled LED screens.

Ad campaigns can reach across channels by prompting travelers to connect with brands via social media and then email when prompted by on-screen advertising content. The kiosks’ software captures usage metrics to provide insights on campaign effectiveness to brands.

Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network will be used to deliver digital advertising to the kiosk network, including messages from Verizon. Clear Channel Airports’ management of advertising programs at ATL, ORD and DFW offer ideal placement for Monster Media’s charging stations.

The Interactive Charging Station network includes kiosks in three select airports: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

“This network gives advertisers a powerful new option to deepen their audience exposure and consumer engagement with extended dwell time, and at the traveler’s leisure,” said Jon Sayer, president, Clear Channel Airports. “This work with Monster Media underscores our commitment to reinventing air travel experience for both maximum convenience and advertiser benefit while engaging with the connected consumer in meaningful ways.”

“The interactive charging stations present advertisers with a way to slow down the busy traveler, present them with a free service, and in exchange, capture their time and attention to view messages from advertisers,” said Chris Beauchamp, CEO, Monster Media.

Monster Media has also renewed its interactive digital signage wall agreement with Clear Channel Airports.

CBS Outdoor Buys Van Wagner Billboard Assets

CBS Outdoor Buys Van Wagner Billboard Assets

Acquisition Strengthens CBS Outdoor’s REIT Portfolio Adding 1100 Large Format Billboards

NEW YORK, NYCBS Outdoor (CBSO) has announced that it will acquire Van Wagner’s outdoor advertising businesses for $690 million in cash. CBSO will acquire approximately 1,100 large-format billboard displays in 11 top U.S. markets. Total 2013 revenues of the acquired assets are $206 million.

According to CBS Outdoor, the acquisition will strengthen its REIT asset portfolio with more than 90% of the acquired revenues being derived from REIT eligible assets. In addition, over 95% of acquired revenues will be derived from Top 10 DMAs. CBS intends on financing the transaction with cash on hand and proceeds from the issuance of additional long-term debt resulting in gross leverage of 4.9x. The Company intends to hire personnel from Van Wagner team to sell, service, and grow the Company’s enhanced
outdoor portfolio.

There has been a lot of consolidation in the out-of-home advertising space recently. Last March, JCDecaux announced the acquisition of CEMUSA for 80 million euros ($112,591,000). And last month, Astral Out-of-Home, a division of Bell Media, announced that it will acquire Macdonald Outdoor’s digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising network in Edmonton. Astral’s acquisition includes nine large-format digital faces located at Edmonton’s most strategic intersections. Astral Out-of-Home also announced plans to erect 12 new large-format digital billboards in Edmonton and Calgary.

CBS Outdoor was not the only company in acquiring Van Wagner’s assets. “Although we’re disappointed that we didn’t win the bidding for Van Wagner, the 21.6x multiple reported in CBS’ presentation this morning is the highest-multiple deal in the out-of-home industry in the last ten years and a great validation of the value of Outdoor,” said David Grabert, SVP, Marketing & Communications, Clear Channel Outdoor.

“We’re very pleased to be announcing an exciting transaction regarding this high quality group of outdoor assets,” said Jeremy Male, Chief Executive Officer. “It’s a unique opportunity that aligns perfectly with our top-market growth strategy and will enhance the scale, quality, and depth of our portfolio which we believe will be great for our advertising partners. Further, we expect the Van Wagner assets to contribute significantly to our REIT operations, driving increased shareholder value.”

Richard Schaps, Chief Executive Officer of Van Wagner, said, “After having spent more than 40 years building Van Wagner’s outdoor advertising business into a leading industry participant, I am delighted to be turning this division over to CBS Outdoor, a great organization with outstanding new leadership who can grow this business into the future. Van Wagner will now focus on building our Sports and Entertainment group as well as our leading Blimp and Aerial division.”

Centerview Partners, Goldman, Sachs & Co., and Peter J. Solomon Company are acting as financial advisors and Jones Day is acting as legal advisor to CBS Outdoor. Wells Fargo has provided committed financing in support of the acquisition. Evercore Partners and Onera Media are acting as financial advisors and Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson is acting as legal advisor to Van Wagner

Gas Station TV Acquired by Rockbridge Growth Equity

Gas Station TV’s Place-based Video Advertising Network Reaches More Than 50 Million Viewers Per Month Across 42 States

Gas Station TV’s Digital Place-based Advertising Network Reaches More Than 50 Million Viewers Per Month Across 42 States

DETROIT, MI — Consolidation in the digital place-based (DPb) advertising space has accelerated over the last several months. Last January, Outcast Media, one of the largest digital-place-based advertising networks at gas pumps was snapped up by Gilbarco Veeder-Root combining Outcast Media’s network with Gilbarco’s c-store-based Applause TV. Then in April came news that Captivate Network would acquire the Office Media Network, creating one of North America’s largest in-office professional media networks. Today comes news that Rockbridge Growth Equity, LLC, a Detroit-based private equity firm, has signed a purchase agreement to acquire Gas Station TV (GSTV), one of the fastest-growing place-based advertising networks at gas pumps—and a direct competitor to Outcast Media.

Founded in 2006 and located in Birmingham, Michigan, GSTV is one of the largest place-based video advertising networks in the United States reaching more than 50 million viewers at gas pumps each month. GSTV’s viewership has continued to grow and solidify video advertising at the pump as an exemplary platform for brands to reach on-the-go consumers. GSTV’s place-based screens engage and influence  consumers with exclusive content from ESPN, CNN’s Headline News and Buzz Today, Bloomberg TV, and AccuWeather at fuel retailers across the country.

Rockbridge Growth Equity is leading the transaction. Other investors include Falcon Investments and Michigan Growth Capital Partners, co-managed by Grosvenor Capital Management and Beringea. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks pending regulatory approval. Barclays PLC served as the exclusive financial advisor to GSTV. RBS Citizens arranged the senior debt facilities in partnership with First Merit and Flagstar Bank.

Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of MarketingTraditional methods of advertising have become less effective as consumers spend less time in places where marketers have traditionally had an advantage in reaching them. Consumer attention has fragmented across multiple channels as media options and device platforms increasingly diversify. Finding effective ways to deliver branded messages in today’s complex media environment is one of the biggest challenges facing advertisers.

Active consumers spend money, and while they are going about their daily routine, they are also actively looking for information. According to Google, more than 50% of all mobile searches have local intent, and 17% of search happens while consumers are on the go.

Digital place-based (DPb) media is unique because it intercepts on-the-go consumers with relevant, highly targeted messages as they move through the day. Location-based mobile and digital place-based media are part of a larger omnichannel ecosystem that effectively amplifies brand messages to create a deeper level of engagement with active consumers.

FIAT Uses Multiscreen Ad Strategy To Reach On-the-Go Consumers

FIAT Campaign Uses Multiscreen Ad Strategy Using Online, Television and Digital Place-based Media

FIAT Campaign Ties Online, Television and Digital Place-based Media in Multiscreen Ad Strategy

NEW YORK, NY — That angry mutant reptile known as Godzilla is returning to the big screen this summer and advertisers are lining up with promotional tie-ins to reach young, affluent on-the-go consumers. Among them is FIAT with a new spot to promote it’s latest model, the 500L. FIAT’s advertising campaign is part of a larger multiscreen ad strategy that includes online, television and digital place-based (DPb) advertising.

FIAT extended it campaign reach by adding more than 21,000 high-definition screens on Outcast, one of the largest place-based video advertising networks located at gas station pumps. Outcast’s monthly audience of 38 million active, on-the-go consumers rivals the delivery of top broadcast TV shows, connecting FIAT’s brand with a relevant target audience of drivers who can be traditionally difficult to reach.

According to Outcast, their network is ideal for reaching drivers as they racked up more than 100 billion miles on their vehicles each year, which is 50% more than the general population average. As a result, Outcast says their viewership are 4.5 times more likely to be in market for a new vehicle in the next six months. In addition, 78% of this target audience skips traditional TV commercials and, typically, bypasses online ads.

A report from Lieberman Research in conjunction with Outcast, found that consumers at the pump who were exposed to auto ad campaign creative, later indicated that they were 55% more likely to consider that vehicle the next time they’re in market for a new car.

“We’re excited and committed to offering our audience high quality content that both engages and entertains, and the FIAT brand’s Godzilla advertising does just that,” says Outcast co-founder and CRO, Nathan Gill. “Our viewers spend 43% more than the general population on their vehicle, making Outcast a unique platform for automotive brands. We deliver the audience they want and eliminate waste associated with reaching non-drivers.”

Outcast Media operates as the media business unit of Gilbarco Veeder-Root. Outcast was acquired by Gilbarco last January which operates Applause TV for convenience stores. FIAT’s campaign’s was created by the The Richards Group and the Moving Picture Company, (MPC) a visual effects firm based in Canada.
