- June 17th, 2020

Last Mile Holdings Ltd. a leading micro-mobility company with the broadest product suite in the industry, today provided an update highlighting certain key performance indicators driving the recent success and significant growth in its recently acquired and now fully integrated operating subsidiary, Gotcha Mobility.

Last Mile Holdings Ltd. (“MILE” or the “Company”) (TSXV:MILE) (OTC:AZNVF), a leading micro-mobility company with the broadest product suite in the industry, today provided an update highlighting certain key performance indicators (“KPIs”) driving the recent success and significant growth in its recently acquired and now fully integrated operating subsidiary, Gotcha Mobility (“Gotcha”).

“I am thrilled to work with an amazing team where our post-acquisition integration and on-the-ground business execution have translated into impressive KPI results as we continue to grow our business,” said Sean Flood, CEO of Gotcha.

In the first five months of 2020 Gotcha has had exciting material increases in several KPIs within its various e-mobility markets, including:

  • 43% increase in number of trips per month from 36,200 in January to 51,900 in May;
  • 208% increase in minutes ridden per month from 416,600 in January to 1,281,500 in May;
  • 53% increase in riders per month from 13,300 in January to 20,300 in May;
  • 17% increase in vehicles deployed from 3,990 in January to 4,650 in May.

Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Gotcha has been coordinating efforts with university and municipal partners to keep its products on the streets and provide riders a socially-distant transportation alternative. The increase in ridership is reflected in riders’ engagement with a 208% increase in total minutes ridden (compared to a 17% increase in vehicles deployed), proving Gotcha’s products are in high demand as a safe transportation method. With comprehensive product cleaning procedures and safety messaging, Gotcha is ensuring its riders stay safe and informed.

“Gotcha’s record performance year-to-date is a clear endorsement of our diversified platform of transportation solutions as well as our highly-targeted go-to-market approach,” said MILE CEO Max Smith. “Our exclusive contract partnership model has proven to be far more resilient than other mass-expansion, undifferentiated offerings. During a time of global economic uncertainty, this disciplined approach has enabled our team to retain existing employees and also bring on additional staff to satisfy the demand we’re currently witnessing. Riders are taking longer leisure trips, using shared bikes and scooters as a way to get outside while adhering to social distancing guidelines. We believe the current catalysts, while influential in the near term, will also lead to longer term changes in consumer behavior specifically within our key markets. As more communities adopt shared micro-transit, MILE will continue to develop its multi-modal portfolio to meet the needs of riders and partners.”
