3 COMPANY & SERVICES Affordable luxury: Blacklane's limousine services open up the market to individual customers A black luxury sedan stops in front of your hotel; a friendly chauffeur holds the door for you; the car's exceptional legroom and tinted windows ensure a standard of quality usually afforded only to celebrities and diplomats. Who wouldn't want to get around like that? Now anyone can with Blacklane Ltd., a Berlin-based startup that offers a mobile service for booking chauffeured limousines at surprisingly affordable prices. How does it work? Bookings can be made online or with the Blacklane smartphone app. Blacklane's careful use of its car providers' services helps the company keep its prices low and offers its customers comfortable rides at fixed prices. Gratuities, waiting time, order processing fees, and detours are all included in Blacklane's rates. With our innovative approach, we've opened up the market for this high quality product not only to cost-sensitive companies whose employees often take a taxi, but also to individuals looking to spend a little more on a safe and private way of getting around, says Dr. Jens Wohltorf, co-founder and managing director of Blacklane GmbH with Frank Steuer. Before, booking a limousine was expensive and complicated. With Blacklane, it's easy and, thanks to the efficient use of our car providers' services, considerably cheaper than it used to be. With Blacklane's booking service, reservation times have been reduced from several days to several minutes. Immediately after booking, our platform finds the driver and vehicle that will best serve the order, says Frank Steuer. Blacklane offers three classes of vehicles at slightly different prices: Business Class vehicles (e.g., Mercedes E-Class, Audi A6, or BMW 5 series, Lincoln Town Car), Business Vans/ SUVs (e.g., Mercedes Viano and VW T5, Cadillac Escalade), and First Class vehicles (e.g., Mercedes S-Class, Audi A8, or BMW 7 series). Blacklane does not currently offer stretch limousines. Passengers can book cars for single trips or, should they need a driver to take them to two appointments in different locations, by the hour. Founded in June 2012 in Berlin, Blacklane now offers its services in almost every important international metropolis. This year the company continues its worldwide expansion.

4 According to company estimates, there are currently around 15,000 chauffeur and limousine vehicles in Germany alone, with sales of around one billion Euros. In comparison, the 50,000 taxis operating in the country have a turnover of three billion euros. Some 70 percent of limousine providers operate with only one or two vehicles. So far, limousines are utilized only 20 percent of the time on average. We are increasing the capacity utilization of the limousine service providers as a trip-filler and thus their income. We thereby ensure that the number of empty trips is reduced significantly for both economic and ecological reasons, says Dr. Jens Wohltorf, co-founder and managing director of Blacklane. Not only do limousine rides offer comfort and absolute reliability, they also guarantee a high level of security and privacy, says Frank Steuer. To ensure Blacklane's high standard of quality, all vehicles and chauffeurs are integrated into the company's network and checked regularly. Blacklane's offer benefits everyone from tourists to celebrities and politicians. Businesses can also save time and money by using Blacklane and can be billed with monthly invoices. Bookings can be made online or via smartphone with the company's app and Blacklane's integrated billing service helps customers keep track of their payments and better manage their travel expenses. In the first year of its existence, Blacklane's team of 55 employees has managed to do enough work for a company tenfold its size. Investors are more than satisfied. Blacklane's outstanding performance on the German market shows us that Blacklane is best-suited to redefine the limousine service in Europe and worldwide, says advisory board chairman Dr. Jochen Gutbrod of RI Digital Ventures, adding: With its user-friendly service Blacklane offers its fast-growing customer base a perfect alternative to taking a cab.

5 How it works Bookings can be made around the clock, online or with the company's smartphone app. Blacklane's customer service hotline is staffed seven days a week from 6am to 11pm. After specifying their pick-up location and booking period or desired destination, customers can choose from one of three classes of vehicles (Business Class, Business Van /SUV, First Class) at a binding fixed price including all taxes and fees. Cars can be booked up to fifteen minutes before the customer's required pick-up time. After booking, customers receive a confirmation of their order as well as their chauffeur`s contact details. Payments can be made by credit card, and companies can be billed on a monthly basis. All of a customer's invoices can easily be downloaded from their MyBlacklane account.
