SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Daekyo Co., Ltd. (www.daekyo.co.kr), one of Asia's largest education companies, today announced its acquisition of Knowre (www.knowre.com), an award-winning global AI-based education technology company. Executives from both companies, including Daekyo Group Chairman Young-Joong Kang and Daekyo CEO Soo-Wan Park, along with Knowre's Co-CEOs Yong Jae Kim and David Joo, met today at Daekyo Tower in Seoul, South Korea to finalize and close the transaction.

Commenting on the transaction, Soo-Wan Park, CEO of Daekyo said, "By combining Daekyo's long-time education experience and know-how with Knowre's technology and product development prowess, we will lead the global education market into the digital era."

This transaction, with Daekyo's support and expertise, will allow us to innovate faster and bring our technology and products to more students around the globe."

Daekyo's acquisition of Knowre strengthens its digital offerings and provides greater opportunities to incorporate innovative technologies into services for its customers.
