  • (1888PressRelease) September 14, 2010 - Frog, the leading supplier of learning platform and portal solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with YTL Education (UK) Limited ("YTL Education"). YTL Education is part of the YTL Corporation Berhad Group ("YTL"), one of Malaysia's largest and most respected companies.

    Frog is used in over 600 schools, mostly secondary, across 60% of local authorities in the UK and this is expected to grow substantially during the next 12 months. Frog's focus is based on creating engagement through creativity and making software fun. It engages students and teachers through its intuitive design and drag-drop interface, which allows them to customise their own Frog Learning Platform, enabling ordinary people to do extraordinary things!

    YTL Education is taking a 20% shareholding in Frog to form a strategic alliance to market Frog in Malaysia and South East Asia. Frog in turn will invest in a joint venture based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and will similarly take a 20% shareholding.

    "Frog is delighted to have the endorsement of a major global corporation like YTL, and is looking forward to working with an internationally recognised partner", said Gareth Davies, Managing Director of Frog. "International expansion through a Joint Venture business will allow Frog to capture growing international interest while allowing Frog UK to remain focussed on UK schools." Gareth continues, "Frog are finding a lot of international interest, and we fully recognise that this is entirely due to the quality of our product and service in the UK. We do not intend to take our eyes off the ball in England; in fact, this investment allows us to accelerate our UK plans."

    "We believe Frog's learning platform will complement the suite of services currently being developed for the YTL group's 4G wireless network which will be rolled-out across Malaysia later this year. We fully expect that schools in Malaysia, like those in the UK, will benefit from the innovative learning solutions that Frog has developed and are very happy to be sharing the journey into its future," said Dato' Yeoh Seok Hong, Executive Director of YTL.
