China's online-service super-app Meituan Dianping announced on October 9 that the company's name had been changed to "Meituan" from September 30.
On September 11, Meituan Dianping announced that it intends to simplify its name to Meituan and that its Hong Kong-traded share code will remain unchanged at 3690.
The simplification of the company's name will not have any impact on the business direction, organizational structure or operations of the company, Meituan said.
As a lifestyle consumer decision portal and content sharing platform, Dianping has remained independent.
"Meituan Dianping" was established by the merger of Meituan and Dianping on October 8, 2015, and as of December 31, 2019, the Meituan Dianping platform has amassed over 7.7 billion of user reviews on millions of vendors.
