CHENGDU, China, July 20, 2022 -- Senmiao Technology Limited (“Senmiao” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: AIHS), a financing and servicing company focused on the online ride-hailing industry in China, as well as an operator of its own online ride-hailing platform, today announced the operating metrics for its proprietary online ride-hailing platform for the month of June 2022. In June 2022, Senmiao and its affiliates reported over 0.92 million total completed orders, a 1.7% decrease from over 0.93 million total orders completed in May 2022.

Numbers reported since April 2022 include the number of completed orders from two other ride-hailing platforms in Chengdu, Xiehua and Anma, under the same cooperation model as Meituan.

 

Since the launch of Senmiao’s online ride-hailing platform in October 2020, approximately 17.7 million rides have been completed using its platform. Over 4.5 million rides have been completed on the Major Platform under Senmiao’s partnership with Meituan. Approximately 365,900 rides have been completed on Xiehua and Anma since April 2022.

N/A

 

1 Under the old model, a rider can search for taxi/ride-hailing services on a Senmiao partner’s platform, which then provides the rider with options for online ride-sharing service providers, including Senmiao. If the rider selects Senmiao, the order will then be distributed to registered drivers on Senmiao’s platform for viewing and acceptance. Senmiao earns commissions for each completed order based on a certain percentage of the value of the order.

2 Under the new model, online ride-hailing requests and orders will be completed on the partner’s platform utilizing Senmiao and its affiliate’s network of cars and drivers for a set monthly fee. Starting from April 2022, the number includes orders completed on the Xiehua and Anma platforms, in addition to those completed on the Major Platform since August 2021.
