[7 September 2009, Hong Kong] NetDragon Websoft Inc. (“NetDragon”, with its subsidiaries collectively the “Group”; Stock Code: 777), a leading online game developer and operator in China, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary by hosting the “91 Carnival” and “A Grateful Decade Full of Boundless Dreams – NetDragon Awards Ceremony” in Fujian Stadium, China.
“Over the past decade, NetDragon has witnessed the blossoming of China’s online game industry since its birth, and has positioned itself as a leader to be reckoned with. While most domestic peers entered the industry as third-party game operators, NetDragon forged ahead with independent R&D, and launched its self-made game Monster & Me in 2002. This was soon followed by a series of popular titles such as Conquer Online, Eudemons, Conquer Online, Zero Online and Way of the Five. Also, in 2004 NetDragon continued its pioneering ways by exploring overseas markets, enjoying great success. While getting ready to unveil a series of innovative titles such as Tianyuan and Disney Fantasy Online, NetDragon is also keeping a close eye on opportunities in promising areas, including mobile phone application software and entertainment portals, in an effort to provide more diversified products and services for its users.
Mr. Liu Dejian, Chairman and Executive Director of NetDragon, said, “Looking back on NetDragon’s development over the past decade, we feel that today’s achievements not only derive from the opportunities bestowed by the times and the unremitting efforts of NetDragon’s people, but also from the guidance and support of all government departments and the persistent care and love of our customers. We believe that the future online game market remains full of potential. Thus, NetDragon will stay true to its core advantages in product R&D while upholding the two strategies of ‘talent development’ and ‘creating happy experiences for customers’. Meanwhile, we will seize the opportunities generated by emerging technologies, and intensify efforts to realize dreams for the upcoming decade and reward society as always.”
As the leader of Haixi Creative Industry, NetDragon continues to look ahead and has fostered innovation over the past decade. Since listing on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong in 2007, NetDragon, with its culture characterized by “Learning, Iinnovation, Sincerity & Happiness,” was recognized as the “Best Employer — the Most Suitable Company to Work for in China,” by Fortune China and one of the “Best Small & Medium-sized Enterprise of China 2008” by Forbes. In addition, it was successfully transferred to the Main Board of the SEHK in June 2008. This year, after being honored with the award of the “Enterprise with Best Online Culture” by the Ministry of Culture, NetDragon won the award of “Top 10 Most Valuable Online Gaming Companies in China Over the Past Decade.”
And as a solid corporate citizen, NetDragon is never reluctant to give back to society. In 2007, the Company founded the “Fujian Haixi Foundation for Young Entrepreneurs” in order to help young pioneers realize their dreams. This year, NetDragon was granted the “Honorary Award of Corporate & Employee Contribution Programmes” and the “Community Honor Award” by the Community Chest of Hong Kong.
