MOKO Expands Market to 4,000+ High Schools With BigTeams

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2015) - MOKO Social Media Limited (NASDAQ: MOKO) (ASX: MKB), announced today that it has taken a 10 percent equity stake in BigTeams, the largest high school sports software platform in the U.S. BigTeams' online tools and data help U.S. high schools with sports team administration, event and content management and fundraising. Under the agreement, MOKO will launch a new version of its popular REC*IT app in August 2015, tailored specifically for students and parents of the more than 4,000 U.S. high schools currently serviced by BigTeams.

The U.S. National Center for Education Statistics projects a 2015 enrollment of approximately 16 million students in grades 9 to 12. With approximately 15 percent of the market share of high school sports, BigTeams is the leader in this market. The combined app will give high school students, their parents, and communities with on-the-go tools and access to schedules, announcements, scores, articles and photos from their peers.

"This will give MOKO unprecedented exposure to students in the U.S., from the moment they enter high school until they graduate college," said Ian Rodwell, CEO of MOKO. "The exclusivity of the BigTeams agreement, along with the existing exclusivity for REC*IT across its college base, means REC*IT is positioned to be the leading mobile tool for students in the U.S."

"Being able to quickly, accurately and seamlessly deliver a first-class mobile product and experience to younger consumers is imperative," said BigTeams' CEO Clay Walker. "Combining our high school audience with MOKO's premier mobile product and delivery system allows us to effectively engage our user base."

As part of the agreement, MOKO will license BigTeams data and back end to create the "BigTeams powered by REC*IT" app for high schools.
