Meituan Dianping get funding for better merger

China's leading online-to-offline service provider Meituan Dianping said it has received funding from domestic retail conglomerate China Resources' start-up investment fund, as online and offline companies are continuously merging their businesses to seek synergy.

The two parties expect to collaborate on food delivery businesses leveraging China Resources' extensive offline retail network, according to a joint statement today.

Meituan and Dianping, previously two separate O2O sites, merged in October last year to stop cutting throat competition.

China Resources' retail outlets including CR Vanguard, Tesco, Ole, Vango and Pacific Coffee will become an integral part of Meituan Dianping's on-demand food delivery service in the future.

China Resources said the strategic investment in Meituan Dianping fits well with its continuous efforts to explore new online-to-offline business models.

Meituan Dazhong currently covers more than 4.3 million offline merchants nationwide and boasts 600 million users.
