Kaleyra Expands Connectivity Service Footprint with Several of the Largest OTT Internet Media and App Services Companies

NEW YORK & VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Kaleyra, Inc. (NYSE American: KLR) (KLR WS) (“Kaleyra” or the “Company”) a rapidly growing cloud communications software provider delivering secure system of application programming interfaces (APIs) and connectivity solutions in the API/Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) market, today announced it has recently entered into contracts with three of the world’s largest OTT (Over-the-Top) Internet media and App services companies based in China and the U.S. to deliver messaging traffic globally.

“The addition of several OTT industry giants to our connectivity market segment represents a significant milestone in our customer diversification strategy, further expanding our business outside of Europe,” commented Dario Calogero, Kaleyra’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “These new programs demonstrate our rapidly growing recognition in the U.S., aided by our listing on the NYSE American Stock Exchange. These contracts will further optimize our connectivity costs and route pricing and reinforce our confidence that we will return to our historical growth rates as economies around the world recover from COVID-19 related closures.”

OTT providers typically communicate with their customers via messaging to support two factor secure authentication, notifications, promotional messages, and service alerts. Kaleyra will support the providers in messaging with their global customer base, ensuring high service levels and uptime.

“Our reputation as the “trusted CPaaS,” and our combination of world class products and services, make Kaleyra the ideal solution for companies servicing the explosive growth in the social media, e-commerce and mobility markets. In addition to these significant new customers, the run rate of our contract with the global, mega-cap media company announced earlier in the year is ahead of plan and additional purchase orders have been secured. I remain confident in our long-term outlook and believe Kaleyra is poised to continue to gain recognition in these fast-growing markets,” commented Mr. Calogero.
