SHANGHAI, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Madhouse, the largest and most intelligent mobile advertising network in China, and EA Mobile™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and the world's leading mobile games publisher, announced a mobile marketing alliance to deliver live ads within EA's mobile games launching in China using Madhouse's SmartMad intelligent targeting technology.

Founded 2006 in Shanghai, Madhouse is a leading and well established mobile advertising network and solutions company that offers results for both the mobile web and mobile applications. SmartMad, the leading mobile web and in-application advertising platform in China, delivers precisely targeted ads through its SmartMad advertising network and technology.

"We are pleased to be working closely with EA Mobile.  EA Mobile games are tremendously popular across all major handset operating systems.  By providing an effective monetization mechanism, our collaboration makes it possible for EA Mobile to reach an even broader segment of users by bringing down the end user cost.  For Madhouse, the addition of EA properties to the SmartMad ad network gives our customers broader reach to a high value user segment," said Dan Wong, COO of Madhouse.  "Beyond ad placement, our cooperation with EA also entails highly customized and integrated brand solutions.  Take SHIFT 2 Unleashed from the Need for Speed franchise, one of the most well-known games by EA, as an example.  Working closely with EA, we were able to help our customer Jaguar sponsor test drives for SHIFT2 Unleashed users."

Many global game companies are showing interest in China's more than 900 million mobile users. The agreement between Madhouse and EA Mobile demonstrates leadership in China as the industry moves into free-to-play and Freemium content.

"EA will continue to lead the way in innovation - not only in gameplay but also with new business models," said Jim Lee, General Manager of EA Mobile China.  "EA will invest heavily in developing the mobile games market in China, including the introduction of more and more free-to-play games powered by advertising.  We look forward to work closely with Madhouse to make games affordable and accessible to end users."
