Indonesian news reader app Kurio today announced it just closed a US$5 million series B round from its Japanese counterpart Gunosy.

Gunosy listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange last year, and it now has a market cap of US$107 million—down from US$263 million market cap.

The investment in Kurio is part of its efforts to expand to Southeast Asia. Indonesia is obviously a good starting point, given its 100 million internet users and fast-growing smartphone adoption.

Kurio founder David Wayne Ika says the companies will share their know-how and resources to dominate the market. “Gunosy’s experience with big data and machine learning are important lessons for our engineering team to grow.”

Founded in 2014, Kurio has tie-ups with hundreds of online publishers in Indonesia. The team declined to say how many active users the app has.

Kurio’s closest rivals in Indonesia are BaBe and GNews, while international news apps like Google Play Newsstand and Apple News are indirect competitors.

Prior to Gunosy, Kurio received its series A funding from Japan’s Cyberagent Ventures. Indonesian VC GDP Ventures also backs Kurio through Merah Putih Incubator.

WeChat, Tencent’s popular messaging app, is still growing fast. It added nearly 200 million monthly active users (MAUs) in the past year.

WeChat had 697 million MAUs at the end of December, said the company today in its Q4 2015 earnings report.

Tencent did not disclose how many of WeChat’s users are in mainland China versus other areas. But it’s clear that WeChat is focused on mainland China from the number of the app’s features that are limited just to its home nation, such as online and in-store payments via the WeChat Pay feature.
