Release of iOS App
During the half-year, the Company released its iPhone app to the iTunes Store. The app is designed to provide an enhanced user experience for the significant number of HotCopper members that access the site from an iOS device. HotCopper entered into a material, 12-month sponsorship agreement for the app with global trading platform, IG. The commencement date of the agreement coincided with the app’s release on the 26th July 2017. Per the Company’s ASX announcement, the agreement will bring in revenue equal in the first 12 months to approximately 5% of HotCopper’s annual revenue.

The Product - A targeted investor relations channel
Corporate Spotlight is a subscription-based investor-relations platform for ASX-listed companies looking to reach their most engaged investors. It offers dedicated ‘real-estate’ above discussion on the HotCopper site for companies to put forward their investment case to investors researching their stock.

The Engagement Rationale - Investors have moved online
 Australians are increasingly applying a 'do-it-yourself' approach to investing, with 58% of retail investors trading through online brokers such as CommSec or E*Trade, and a growing number of SMSFs (577,000+) managing over $620 billion in assets. A large portion of these investors use HotCopper when researching and making investment decisions, and Corporate Spotlight will allow companies to reach the investors who are most interested in their investment proposition.
