HONG KONG, Apr 28, 2010 - (ACN Newswire) - Kingsoft Corporation Limited ("Kingsoft" or the "Company"; SEHK stock code: 3888), a leading applications and entertainment software developer, distributor and service provider in China, has announced that Kingsoft WPS Office (named "Kingsoft Office" in Japan) 2010 Japanese USB Edition has ranked first in the authoritative website BCN Japan Weekly Integrated Software Sales Chart between 19 and 25 April. This leadership sales performance demonstrates the breakthrough successes that WPS Office has achieved in the Japanese market.

According to BCN, Microsoft Office 2007 and Kingsoft Office 2010 Japanese CD-rom Version ranked second and third in terms of sales volume in the same week.

Since Kingsoft entered the Japanese market in 2005, its WPS Office Japanese Version has recorded strong sale volumes growth, currently ranking second in market share, after Microsoft.
