(Nasdaq: MOMO) ("Momo" or the "Company"), a leading mobile social networking platform in China, today announced that it has become aware that certain mobile app stores in China have removed the Tantan mobile app on direction of governmental authorities in China.
The Company is proactively communicating with the relevant government authorities and intends to fully cooperate with such authorities in order to restore the availability of the Tantan mobile app in the subject mobile app stores as soon as possible. The Company also plans to conduct a comprehensive internal review of the content in the Tantan mobile app and undertake other measures necessary to stay in full compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
