Joint Venture Expands Synacor Reach To China

"In China, where over half a billion consumers are online, we see a great opportunity for Synacor's cross-platform startpage and portal solutions for operators and consumer electronics companies," said Wang. "We are committed to making this joint venture a success and are excited to be working together."

"China represents a significant international growth opportunity to expand the reach of our products and services," said Ron Frankel, Synacor CEO. "Synacor is honored to enter into this joint venture with Maxit and we are excited and confident about Sean's commitment and ability to achieve success."

The joint venture's ability to operate in China is subject to customary regulatory conditions, including registration as a wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE) in China. Synacor and Maxit expect to complete registration of the WFOE in the second quarter of 2013.
