Northcore Announces Launch of KuklamooFamily deal portal focuses on high growth, underserved segment of daily deal market (June 06, 2012)
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 06/06/12 -- Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions is pleased to announce the launch of the latest member of its group of portfolio companies, Kuklamoo ("Kuklamoo").
Kuklamoo is a family information Web destination and national deal site. Its goal is to provide young families with relevant, current, lifestyle information and access to specially curated, high-value deals with savings averaging between 30 and 90 percent.
The informational section of the property includes valuable information from a team of well known mom-authors. The articles are thought provoking, contemporary and fully searchable. It is a key objective of the Kuklamoo team to expand upon this component of the Web presence and provide an even broader range of information on a more varied list of topics.
The growth opportunity for a family focused daily commerce site is significant, with it currently representing only a small portion of the overall segment sales of over $3 billion dollars annually. The market has taken notice of this potential, with family focussed daily deal site Zulily recently raising $43 million dollars at pricing structure which values the company at over $700 million dollars.
"The launch of Kuklamoo is great news for Northcore and our shareholders," said Amit Monga, CEO of Northcore Technologies. "We believe that the family deal segment has been underserved and offers great potential for growth. Stakeholders can expect some exciting developments around our new property in the near term."
