Mr. Yuzhu Shi, Giant's Chairman commented, "I am very proud of what Giant has achieved in the past nine years since we founded the Company in 2004. From developing the landmark free-to-play MMORPG ZT Online to being a public company listed on the NYSE, I have always envisioned Giant becoming a mature company with a self-sustaining culture and core values, relying on the entire team to produce the results which we demand of ourselves. Over the past several years we reorganized our research and development organization into independent studios, in order to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas and incentivize our developers to continually create innovative and commercially successful games. Our young talents have led their teams to create breakthrough games such as ZT Online 2 and the upcoming World of Xianxia, and have proved that this industry truly belongs to the young. I will continue to oversee the Company's strategic direction as Chairman of the Board, and to provide my full support to our management team and talents as Giant strides into the future, relying on the values we have nurtured company-wide to pave the way for exciting opportunities ahead."
