Today, we list AppLovin on the NASDAQ exchange under the stock ticker symbol “APP.”

When we founded AppLovin in 2011, mobile technology was in its early days. The smartphone had just unlocked a new world of possibility. We could see that mobile apps were going to change the world. We believed that if we could help developers get their apps discovered by the right users, we’d have a meaningful business that would better the lives of consumers in all corners of the world. 

Fast forward to 2021—our mission to grow the mobile app ecosystem and keep our focus on app developers are at the core of what we do and is the bedrock for our success. We still maintain the same nimble approach that kick-started our business and allows us to be flexible, creative, and deliver value for our customers. We’ve become a thriving mobile apps and technology company that helps accelerate the growth of app developers around the world. We’ve driven over 6B+ installs on our platform and have 410M daily active users (DAUs) on our platform. We entertain tens of millions of consumers every day with over 200 apps across our 12 studios. 

It’s been gratifying to see our customers scale their app businesses and find success through our platform and solutions. Listening to their challenges and needs continues to be our driving force that inspires us to innovate and grow our technology to meet their ever-evolving needs.  

None of this would have been possible without you. To our customers, business partners, and supporters—thank you for believing in our company. It’s a new chapter for AppLovin and we will remain committed to solving problems and improving opportunities for app developers to make great apps and grow their business. When you succeed, we succeed.  

To our AppLovin employees—thank you for your passion and commitment. It’s a testament to our smart, nimble, and innovative culture that we’ve seen such significant growth over the years while still maintaining the values that got us here. I am inspired and motivated by your dedication. Your hard work and commitment mean we are always striving for excellence.

A bright future lies ahead and as we begin our journey today as a public company, we stay committed to the developers and partners we serve. We will strive to always put innovation first and deliver market-leading solutions to the mobile app ecosystem.

AppLovin’s journey is just beginning. Today, we pause to celebrate and ring the bell for all of you. Thank you.
