QYOU Media’s opportunity in India is extremely exciting. I just visited India late last year and met many of our cable, satellite and streaming distribution partners and it is clear to me that the opportunity to meet the insatiable demand of Young Indians, being 20 to 30 years old, who crave short form video is enormous. Equally, the demand by advertisers to reach this audience is massive and growing. Vikas Ranjan will undoubtedly help us navigate our way over the next several years in India and in respect to investors focused on the Indian opportunity.QYOU Media Chair G. Scott Paterson
