Beijing-based gaming company Kunlun, or Kalends, has filed for IPO on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Founded in 2008, Kunlun develops and distributes client/web/mobile games, operates two app stores (desktop (Windows/Mac) app store Brothersoft and Android app store iMobile), and owns Wiyou.com, a game platform for traditional Chinese-language users.

In the first half of 2014, 79% of Kunlun’s total revenues were from outside mainland China. More than 90% of revenues generated overseas are from its own platform, according to the filing (Kunlun games are available on third-party gaming platforms too).

Since 2009 Kunlun has set up offices in Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, the U.S., Taiwan, and Europe.
