CooTek Participates in 2018 TechCrunch International Innovation Summit

SHENZHEN, China, Dec. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CooTek (NYSE: CTK), a fast-growing global mobile internet company, was honored to participate in the 2018 TechCrunch International Innovation Summit in Shenzhen, China. CooTek's CEO, Michael Wang, was invited to participate in a panel discussion about innovation on the main stage where he described how CooTek delivers the most relevant content to mobile internet users through its data-driven technology and user-centric products. All of the panelists were former participants of TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield, a well-known and highly selective innovation competition held by TechCrunch. CooTek was a finalist of TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield in 2011.

During the discussion, Mr. Wang talked about how CooTek has leveraged its massive global user base and extensive experience in applying big data technology to create a global product portfolio focusing on 5 verticals--fitness, lifestyle, healthcare, news and short videos, and entertainment. Mr. Wang shared how some of the Company's apps are based on a content recommendation system built using CooTek's in-house developed AI technology. These apps include the feminine care app, "Cherry," which provides healthcare consultations, professional content, and a community discussion page for users to learn, discuss, and share information related to menstrual cycles. The fitness app, "Abs Workout," offers relevant professional training plans and videos to help users stay on track and build perfect abs based on the user's goals. The Company's portfolio of apps essentially acts as a content delivery platform that provides the most relevant information to users.

"Technical innovation is playing an important role in terms of how we commercialize our products," commented Mr. Wang. "We are leveraging our deep learning technology developed in-house at our AI Lab to increase monetization of our portfolio products, which contributed approximately 66.6% of total revenue and helped to drive up the effective price per impression by 107% year-on-year in the most recent quarter. We will continue to invest in technology and develop innovative new products that deliver the most relevant information to our users."
