UOL and Gyeonggi Province Partner to Expand Content and Games Industry in Brazil and South Korea

Leading Internet Service Provider and South Korea's largest province partner to develop online content initiatives in Brazil and Gyeonggi Province

SAO PAULO, BRAZIL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Universo Online (UOL), the largest internet service and content provider in Brazil, and South Korea's Gyeonggi Province, global economic leader and a driving force in the Korean economy, today announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement to promote each other's online games and content markets. The partnership was revealed in Sao Paulo on March 27 during a press conference held by Marcelo Epstejn, CEO of UOL, and Governor of Gyeonggi Province, Moon Soo-Kim.

"South Korea's Gyeonggi Province is a power-house of online entertainment and games, which now comprise about 60 percent of all cultural exports from Korea," said Marcelo Epstejn, CEO of UOL. "We're looking forward to supporting the growth of Gyeonggi Province in Brazil and providing Brazilians with outstanding online content the South Korean market is known for."

Gyeonggi is the largest province in the South Korea, amounting to more than half of the population. This MOU will help companies that operate within that province to expand to Brazil through UOL Group, and identify areas for mutually beneficial cooperation that will foster stronger ties in entertainment and online gaming.

The South Korean Province's major game developers are among the largest in the world, establishing the market as a natural partner for Brazil, which is the fourth largest online games market. UOL is synonymous with the internet in the country and now holds 65 percent of the online games business through its digital monetization and publishing divisions, BoaCompra and Gamerica. As South Korea's local game market is fairly saturated, major local game developers, such as NCSoft, SmileGate and CJ, will benefit from Gyeonggi Province's investment in marketing, taxes and local services.
