By leveraging Liaison Interactive's extensive customer base in the Chinese mobile internet market, Dehaier anticipates growing its market share in China. It is the exact type of collaboration that we would anticipate from a strategic investor like Liaison Interactive, and we believe it will lead to a new revenue stream for us in the future."
