"We are extremely excited to work with Sungy Mobile through this partnership. The two companies have a lot in common in focusing on delivering the best and most innovative products and services to mobile users," said Mr. Hongyi Zhou, Chairman and CEO of Qihoo 360, "As we have established a clear leadership position in mobile security in China, we are actively looking at opportunities to expand internationally. We believe Sungy Mobile's success in overseas markets will add significant strategic value as we pursue international expansion. Through this partnership, more and more overseas users will be able to enjoy the same level of high quality protection and convenience provided by Qihoo 360, along with currently over 500 million Chinese smartphone users."

Mr. Yuqiang Deng, CEO of Sungy Mobile said, "GO Launcher EX has established a strong beachhead in developed countries and regions, such as the United States and European Union. Since last year, we've been helping Chinese companies access international markets through our strong distribution channel. Qihoo 360 is an outstanding company and I am very happy that Sungy Mobile works together with them. Sungy Mobile will further explore international markets with more and more companies from China."
