CARROLLTON, Texas – Blue Calypso Inc. (OTCBB: BCYPD) (“Blue Calypso” or the “Company”) announced that it has completed its merger with a public shell and has filed its 8-k with the SEC and will trade on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board under the ticker symbol BCYP. Blue Calypso is a rapidly growing mobile and social advertising company using its patented advertising platform to deliver a compelling return on investment for advertisers in the mobile commerce space.
“We are excited to become public so that we can increase awareness of Blue Calypso and the value proposition it offers advertisers,” said Andrew Levi, founder, Chairman and CEO of Blue Calypso. “We believe the Company is well positioned to capture a significant share of the growing mobile advertising market.”
Led by experienced industry executives, Blue Calypso enables intimate friend-to-friend advertising distribution that utilizes personal social media profiles and SMS. Blue Calypso’s unique program is powered by their proprietary ad-rendering and delivery engine known as the Blue Calypso Network (BCN). The BCN gives advertisers the ability to serve multiple creative display ads within the same campaign, while targeting specific conditions such as geo-location, day-of-week, time-of-day, and even weather conditions to offer the most relevant marketing message to the end user.
According to ThinkMobile with Google, 85% of mobile devices will be web enabled by 2012, representing a large market opportunity where smart phones will become the standard device consumers use to connect to friends, the internet and the world at large. J.P. Morgan predicts that 2011 mobile ad spending will increase to $1.2 billion, approximately double the 2010 mobile ad spending total, so carriers and brands are trying a variety of approaches to figure out what works best in the space. Blue Calypso’s powerful analytics and business intelligence capabilities provide advertisers the ability to see how campaigns are delivered, where they are getting the most traction, and which calls to action are seeing the most activity. Since the platform is also a great way to quickly test creative message responses, advertisers can launch multiple campaigns with the same calls to action, use real-time analytics to see which content gets a more viral response maximizing the effectiveness of the social media campaigns.
