Yandex disclosed the financial details of the takeover of Ros.Taxi service

    In January 2015, Yandex acquired the Ros.Taxi taxi fleet management system . However, then the details of the transaction were unknown. Now it turned out that the transaction value amounted to 500 million rubles in cash. Of these, 380 million were designated as deferred payment. This part of the amount must be paid as the transfer of the customer base is completed and the purchased system is integrated with Yandex services.

    Moreover, under the terms of the transaction, the founders of Ros.Taxi can receive another 500 million rubles in shares three years after the closing of the transaction. However, everything will depend on the results of work for this period. If they will actively help in maintaining the system and this will help to fulfill the plan for processed trips, they will receive the indicated amount,reports the publication

    Tigran Khudaverdyan, the head of Yandex’s mobile and software products division, previously spoke about plans to expand influence in the regions of Russia and the CIS:

    “In addition, we want modern cloud software to be available to taxi fleets throughout Russia and the CIS countries. Therefore, it is planned to offer "Ros.Taxi" and "Taximeter" on preferential terms in regions and neighboring countries. "

    Ros.Taxi is a software that allows taxi companies to take orders, manage the work of drivers and compile statistics on the results of work. Their second app, Taxiometer, serves to track the cost of a trip and coordinate taxi drivers with dispatchers. It is used by more than 13 thousand drivers.

    Ros.Taxi processes over a million orders every month. The application is used in more than 350 control rooms. The geography of the service is so far limited to Moscow, St. Petersburg and Voronezh.
