Consumer Services Product Offering Change

 

In July 2018, DropCar Operating began assessing demand for a Self-Park Spaces monthly parking plan whereby consumers could designate specific garages for their vehicles to be stored at a base monthly rate, with 24/7 access for picking up and returning their vehicle directly, and the option to pay a la carte on a per hour basis for a driver to perform functions such as picking up and returning the vehicle to the client’s front door. This model aligns more directly with how the Company has structured the enterprise B2B side of its business, where every interaction with a vehicle on behalf of its drivers generates net new revenue. DropCar Operating has decided that the Self-Park Spaces plan combined with its on-demand valet service will be the only plans that it will offer consumers from September 1, 2018 onwards. Subscriber plans prior to this date will continue to receive service on a prorated basis. Additionally, the Company is scaling back its 360 Services for the Consumer portion of the market. As a result of this shift, in August 2018, the Company has begun to significantly streamline its field teams, operations and back office support tied to its pre-September 1, 2018 consumer subscription plans.
