NEW YORK, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Quhuo, which provides operational solutions for consumer service businesses in China, has filed for an initial public offering (IPO) on the U.S. stock market.

The company plans to list on the Nasdaq under the symbol "QH," with an expectation to raise up to 35 million U.S. dollars, according to its prospectus filed late Thursday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Roth Capital Partners, Valuable Capital, and Tiger Brokers are the joint bookrunners on the deal. No pricing terms were disclosed.

Founded in 2012, the Beijing-based company has a presence in 73 cities across 26 provincial regions.
