Target Media (A)
There is no peace in facing this type of competitor…I am not afraid of competition, but this cutthroat price war will only lead both parties to a dead end. Focus Media and Target Media have fought against each other over the past three years. If we both go public, we will be able to raise enough capital to keep fighting in the same way for another two years, but what shall we do thereafter?
—Yu Feng, founder and CEO of Target Media
