OpenX Software Ltd., a provider of digital and mobile advertising revenue products and services, announced it has completed a $22.5 million Series E funding round. This brings the total investment in OpenX to more than $70 million. New investor Samsung Venture Investment Corporation led the round. Existing investors Accel Partners, Index Ventures, SAP Ventures, Mitsui & Co. Global Investment, Inc., and Presidio Ventures also participated in the round. OpenX will use the funds to further accelerate growth, finance additional acquisitions, expand internationally and broaden adoption of its digital revenue platform.

OpenX's products enable digital media companies to maximize ad revenue on any digitally connected screen. The company has grown very rapidly since its May 2011 Series D funding round, achieving greater than 100% year-over-year revenue growth in both 2011 and 2012. In 2012, OpenX also completed two highly strategic acquisitions -- LiftDNA and JumpTime -- both of which further OpenX's mission to maximize ad revenue for digital media companies. To drive this growth, during 2012 OpenX doubled its team to more than 260 employees.
