He said the company intended to explore more such acquisition opportunities in the future, and that it considers the UK to be a key global market.

Revenue receipts from EyeVibe will be booked as revenue backdated from March 1, but said it didn't expect the unit to start contributing actual revenue until the June quarter. will now begin migrating the EyeVibe user base to the MOKO platform, a process which is expected to take around six months.
