Senmiao Technology Announces Ride-Hailing Platform Operating Metrics for September 2023

CHENGDU, China, Oct. 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — 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 September 2023. In September 2023, Senmiao and its affiliates recorded 0.61 million total completed orders, compared to 0.62 million total orders completed in August 2023. The decrease was primarily the result of a decreased number of completed orders from partner platforms under the new model,2 which was partially offset by an increased number of completed orders by Senmiao’s own platform through Gaode under the original model1, as the Guangzhou compliance check to Gaode’s platform has been completed.

Numbers reported include the number of completed orders from several ride-hailing platform partners in Chengdu, utilizing Senmiao’s network of cars and drivers for a set monthly fee.

Since the launch of Senmiao’s online ride-hailing platform in October 2020, more than 25.0 million rides have been completed using its own platform. Over 8.8 million rides have been completed on several platforms in partnership with Senmiao since August 2021. The number of drivers completing rides via all the platforms (known as Active Drivers) in September 2023 was 6,065, compared to 5,412 in August 2023.

The table below presents approximate unaudited operating metrics of Senmiao and its affiliates’ online ride-hailing platform since the launch in October 2020.

1
Under the original model, orders coming from partner platforms are completed by Senmiao’s own platform. A rider can search for taxi/ride-hailing services on Senmiao’s partner platforms, which then provide 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 own platform for viewing and acceptance and then completed by Active Drivers. Senmiao earns commissions for each completed order based on a certain percentage of the value of the order.

2 Under the new model, orders go through partner platforms but do not utilize Senmiao’s own platform. Online ride-hailing requests and orders will be completed on the partner platforms utilizing Senmiao and its affiliates’ network of cars and drivers for a set monthly fee.

3 New model starts in August 2021.
