BEIJING and DALLAS, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NQ Mobile Inc. (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services, today announced the ongoing growth of its subsidiary, Beijing Feiliu Jiutian Technology Co. (FL Mobile) a leading social mobile platform in China. Behind the strength of its existing platform growth and now with expanded rights with Tencent and CMGE, the company is confident in reaching the high end of our stated $25-$28 million net revenue guidance.
FL Mobile has signed a strategic agreement with Tencent's game studio "Five Colored Stones" that gives it operating rights of a selection of "Five Colored Stones" studio developed mobile games developed by Five Colored Stones' studio on the iOS platform in mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan). FL mobile has just launched the first game, "Journey to the West – Mythical Chapter" pursuant to this strategic agreement, at the beginning of July.
"Dragon's Summon," a puzzle and card game jointly operated and published by China Mobile Games and Entertainment Group Limited (CMGE) and FL Mobile, is distributed exclusively on the iOS platform by FL Mobile.
