History

Piloted in Shanghai and Beijing, Meituan had rapidly expanded to second-tier and third-tier cities, totalling 200 million users in 2015. Meituan.com became a dominating company in China after a rapid consolidation of the deal-of-the-day companies. Earlier estimates show that there were 2000 voucher selling companies in the mid 2000s and due to intense competition in the industry only a few have emerged as dominant players. In 2014 it accounted for 60% of the market share of deal-of-the-day group-buying websites in China. The company received initial funding of $12 million from Sequoia Capital. In May 2014, global growth equity firm General Atlantic led a $300 million series C funding round with two other investors. On 8 October 2015, Meituan and Dianping, a Chinese group buying site, became one company. On 19 January 2016, Meituan Dianping announced that it has raised more than $3.3 billion. On September 20, 2018 Meituan Dianping debuted on the Hong Kong stock exchange at an IPO price of HK$69 per share.

The company was renamed from "Meituan Dianping" to Meituan with effect from September 30, 2020.
