About Company

Yandex.Taxi is an online ride-sharing service launched in 2011 by Yandex (NASDAQ: YNDX), a technology company that builds intelligent products and services powered by machine learning.

In February 2018, Yandex.Taxi merged with Uber in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Kazakhstan to create a new private company called MLU B.V., incorporated in the Netherlands.

As of today, MLU B.V. operates ride-sharing businesses under the Yandex.Taxi and Yango brands, as well as under the Uber brand in countries covered by the merge agreement. It also operates food delivery service Yandex.Eats, as well as our self-driving car division.

Ride-sharing

The service currently operates in 17 countries across the globe. Russia has always been our core market, but our ride-sharing service is also available in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Israel, the Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Serbia, Uzbekistan, Finland, Estonia, Ghana, and Romania. In September 2018, we celebrated one billion completed rides.

We use our own mapping, routing, and navigation technologies, as well as a machine learning-based order distribution system. This combination reduces the time drivers waste looking for passengers as well as time to arrive to passengers and to take them to final destination. All these factors help reduce the net cost of a cab ride.

In the third quarter of 2018, Yandex.Taxi became profitable in its core market. As of September 30, 2018, our Taxi segment had approximately $400 million in cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet. In the last nine months of 2018, Yandex.Taxi revenues grew 355% year-over-year, and the number of rides grew 178% in the same time period.
