BuzzCity Named a Red Herring 100 Asia Company

Award recognizes 100 private companies in Asia that drive the technology industry's future

Hong Kong, 21st August 2006: BuzzCity has been named one of the Red Herring 100 Private Companies of Asia.

"The level of entrepreneurial activity in Asia is no longer surprising," said Joel Dreyfuss, editor-in-chief of Red Herring. "The biggest shift is the emergence of innovative and disruptive companies that can play on the world stage."

Red Herring's lists of private companies are an important part of the magazine's tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google and eBay were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors as those that would change the way we live and work.

"BuzzCity operates a series of mobile commerce networks that is centered on our high traffic community portal - myGamma. The traffic generated by our WAP community provides numerous opportunities for publishers, merchants and advertisers." says Dr Lai Kok Fung CEO, BuzzCity Ltd. "We're delighted at being recognized as one among the leaders in Asia by Red Herring."

Red Herring's editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 600 private companies. The nominees were rigidly evaluated on both quantitative and qualitative criteria such as financial performance, technology innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy, and integration into their ecosystem. This unique assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the actual track record and standing of a company, allowing Red Herring to see past the "buzz" and make the list an invaluable instrument for discovering and advocating the greatest business opportunities in the industry.
