SoftBank Corp has no plans to invest in messaging application Line Corp, Ken Miyauchi, chief operating officer of Japan's No. 3 mobile carrier, told reporters on Friday.
Japan-based mobile messaging app Line will launch an open sticker marketplace called Line Creators Market in April and will also release a Skype-like service in five countries.
Gogolook chief executive officer Jeff Kuo confirmed to TechCrunch about the company's merger with Korean Internet company and LINE app owner Naver, which was worth TW$529 million or $17.6 million, according to a state report.
NHN, a South Korean internet corporation, split because of the growing rivalry of founders in terms of their individual mobile messenger enterprises.
