Kunekt Moves Headquarters to Hong Kong to Capitalize on Rapid Growth of Mobile Phone and Mobile Device Sales in China and India

HONG KONG, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Mark Bruk, president of Kunekt Corporation (OTCBB: KNKT), creator of the Kunekt global brand of affordably priced, quality mobile devices, primarily smartphones and tablets, reported today that the company has moved its headquarters to Hong Kong from the United States. The company has made this move to take advantage of the enormous growth opportunities for sales of mobile devices, specifically smartphones and tablets, in China and India.

Bruk said that its new headquarters location in Hong Kong positions Kunekt at the gateway of its biggest market opportunity, China.  "In the next few years, both the largest number of new mobile phone users and the largest number of new purchases of mobile devices will be in China and India, dwarfing sales in every other country in the world," he said.

Kunekt expects to start selling in China next month and in India and other targeted emerging market economies soon thereafter. "We have relationships in China and India that we expect will enable us to hit the ground running," Bruk said, "a critical factor in entering these highly desirable markets."

"We are in the infancy of a revolution in communications and everyone in the world wants a smartphone, but most people can't afford one," he said. "We intend to fill this void by becoming a global brand that consumers can trust will deliver quality products and service at an affordable price."

Though Kunekt will now be headquartered in Hong Kong, as a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission-registered company that is publicly traded, this move will in no way affect Kunekt's responsibility to its shareholders, according to Bruk. The company will continue to file all SEC-required documents and will comply with all reporting requirements; and its financial statements will continue to be prepared according to U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
