Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 8, 2018, Senmiao Technology Limited (the “Company”) entered into a Fund Deposit Service Agreement (“Agreement”) with Sichuan XW Bank Co., Ltd. (“XW Bank”). The Company entered into the Agreement in connection with its decision to change its custodian bank from Guangdong Huaxing Bank to XW Bank because peer-to-peer lending platforms in Sichuan Province are required to have local commercial banks within the same province serve as custodians according to certain local regulations.


Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, XW Bank will serve as the sole custodian bank of the money from the clients of the Company’s peer-to-peer lending platform to escrow the funds and facilitate the Company’s business. In consideration of its services to the Company, XW Bank will charge (a) a service fee of (i) 0.06% of the amount of money deposited into XW Bank, with a limit of RMB 2 million (approximately US$319,000) annually or (ii) RMB 300,000 (approximately US$48,000) annually, whichever is greater; (b) a transaction fee of RMB 1.50 (approximately US$0.24) for each withdrawal by a platform client; (c) a verification fee of RMB 0.50 (approximately US$0.08) for each verification for the platform client’s bank account information and (d) a nonrecurring, one-time system access fee of RMB 200,000 (approximately US$32,000).


The Agreement has a term of one year and will be automatically extended one more year if neither party terminates the Agreement within the last 30 days of the one-year term. Either party may also terminate the Agreement on 90 days’ notice to the other party, but such termination requires the consent of the non-terminating party.


The foregoing descriptions of the Fund Deposit Service Agreement are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Fund Deposit Service Agreement, the English translation of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
