    Mr. Wei Wen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TuanChe, commented that, "On behalf of the Board and executive team, I would like to thank Troy for his contributions during his time at TuanChe and the key role he played during our initial public offering in 2018. We wish him the best in his future endeavors. Looking ahead, I am excited to have Mr. Yu as our Deputy CFO. Mr. Yu's in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in corporate finance makes him an excellent choice for this important role and we are confident that he will effectively help further strengthen our finance function."
