There is no doubt that 2019 has been an exceptionally successful year for all of us at Kingsoft. Most notably, Beijing Kingsoft Office Software had an enormously successful debut on Shanghai’s STAR market, a trading board created specifically to make it easier for people to invest in Chinese tech companies, raising 4.5 billion yuan ($640 million) on the first day of trading alone. Not only was it a successful day for the company, it was also “one of the best debuts” on the STAR market since its establishment earlier this year.
In 2019, we also expanded our reach overseas, reaching over 100 million people outside of China. In August, we launched the latest international version of WPS Office in India, followed by its UK debut in September. Moreover, WPS Office 2020 has been featured by Apple as one of the “Apps & Games We Love Right Now” in the UK, US, Australia, Indonesia, India, Canada, Philippines, and Malaysia, further evidence of its global appeal.
There are many things for us to look forward to in 2020, not least the continued international rollout of WPS Office 2020, especially WPS Office 2020 for Mac. MacOS users have long struggled to find office suites that are fully compatible and fully functional with their operating system, as well as cost-effective. Our system is built specifically for Mac users, and offers them a product that is high-performing, easy-to-use, and compatible with the most popular office operating systems.
As ever, we are continually developing our products to ensure that they meet the demands of an increasingly connected and increasingly mobile audience. Thanks to our partnerships with companies like Xiaomi and our relationship with our clients, both individual and enterprise, we are confident that we are in a position to continue to provide a high level of service to all those who use our products. Here’s to a great 2020 and beyond!
