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 Meituan's platform since August 2021.
