Mr. David Xueling Li, Chief Executive Officer of YY, stated, "We are happy to see continued expansion of our platform and robust financial performance on both the top and bottom line driven by strong growth momentum across the board during the third quarter. We were especially successful in developing and monetizing our YY Music offering where we were able to grow our YY Music revenues by over 160% year-over-year. By creating a unique and compelling entertainment experience for our users that includes innovative free and paid features such as casting votes and interaction with singers, we continue to broaden our ability to entertain and monetize our growing user base of over 87.2 million aggregate monthly active users for the three months ended September 30, 2013.
"As our recent initiatives suggest, we are committed to exploring and pursuing opportunities to scale our platform by expanding beyond the Chinese domestic market and spreading into a larger number of vertical activities where rich communication capabilities are required. Recently, we established a strategic partnership with Asiasoft and S2 Games, which allows us to expand our user-base and brand internationally through offering the global market an unprecedented interactive and integrated multiplayer gaming experience. Going forward, we will expand our focus on leveraging the YY technology platform internally and externally through partnerships, broadening further into a number of emerging verticals both domestically and internationally," added Mr. Li.
