"We are thrilled to bring Quick to our MeetMe users," said Geoff Cook,
CEO of The Meet Group. "In addition to being our most requested feature,
Quick marks a significant step in video enabling more of our app, while
also delivering on our mission to meet the universal need for human
connection. We hope to see Quick contribute to our growing video
monetization, which now exceeds $42 million annualized, based on the
last 30 days of video revenue."

Quick is expected to increase video monetization as users can either
choose to match with another user for free or choose to be matched with
users of a specific gender for a fee. In addition, similar to
one-to-many livestreaming, users can give virtual gifts in Quick, which
they may do to show interest to the broadcaster, break the ice or start
a conversation.

"We believe livestreaming video is powerful and enables our audience to
connect with each other like never before," continued Cook. "We've seen
MOMO successfully pair livestreaming with dating in China, and since
2016, we've been bringing this model to Western audiences, first in the
U.S. with MeetMe, Tagged, and Skout, and then to Europe with LOVOO.
Today's announcement is a significant step down that same path. We've
seen the Quick model work successfully abroad, and we believe its
one-on-one communication capability will be an important complement to
the one-to-many solution we've already built."

"The bottom line is our users are livestreaming more and more of their
lives on our apps and on other apps, whether when finding new
connections, seeking entertainment, or even when playing video games,"
added Cook. "After completing the roll-out of Quick to all MeetMe users,
we look forward to launching it on our other apps, starting with Skout
later this year. We believe that our pipeline of new video products and
features will continue to attract and engage more of our global user
base. We are excited to bring what we view as a transformative video
product to our community, and are excited about the pipeline of video
products to come."
