"Going forward, we remain committed to our current direction in terms of business development and operational enhancements of our regional IRCs," Dai said.
"We will continue to strengthen our end-to-end infrastructure from vehicle sourcing, sales channels, delivery to after-sales services. We have come a long way and with this expertise, we are well positioned to bring the best-in-class car purchasing experience to our customers nationwide," he added.
The company expects fourth-quarter revenue to be RMB 480 million to RMB 500 million.
