The company also established China’s number one online gaming portal, 17173.com, and China’s most influential smartphone app store platform, 91 Wireless, which was sold to Baidu in 2013 in what was at the time the largest Internet M&A transaction in China.

Our gaming business has been growing faster than the market for multiple consecutive years, driven by our strategy to expand IP portfolio and maximize IP value. And our education business now contributes to close to half of the group’s revenue since we started scaling the business in 2014, on the back of self-development and several acquisitions followed by successful integration.
