Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure.
On February 21, 2017, Rocket Fuel Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release which incorrectly stated that the Company “announced during the company’s fiscal year 2016 earnings 165 percent year-over-year growth in platform services, including a greater than five times increase in platform customers.”

The correct calculation of year-over-year revenue growth in platform services is 135% for the full fiscal year 2016, which is derived from the data published in the Company’s investor deck found at in connection with the Company’s February 21, 2017 earnings call.

As presented in our webcast of February 21, 2017, also found on our website at, the Company now has more than 100 platform customers, an increase of 75% over Q4 2015.

The information set forth under this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filing.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
