Mr. Yan Dinggui, the Founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Despite the unprecedented challenging conditions arising from both the global pandemic and economic uncertainties, our enhanced risk management system and solid asset quality enabled us to maintain solid financial results. In face of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been especially vigilant on cost control which improved our operational efficiency.  Our conservative strategy helped us achieve operational profitability. Right now, China’s consumer markets are recovering and consumer demands are rebounding. We are confident that Jiayin can get through this unusual period with a strong and growing business, and achieve our long-term growth objectives.”

Mr. Yan continued: “The ongoing pandemic has had a material and extended adverse impact on the Chinese and global economy, however, Jiayin has achieved a significant milestone this quarter that positioned us for strong growth in the years ahead. In March, our total loan origination volume facilitated by institutional investors reached 44.5%, compared with zero in the same period of 2019. In Q2, we successfully completed the transition from being facilitated by individual investors to being fully funded through institutional investors. This is a huge accomplishment and we are proud of our rapid expansion of our funding sources towards institutional funding, which demonstrates our strong brand recognition and solid execution capabilities.”

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB313.5 million (US$44.3 million), representing a decrease of 57.1% from the same period of 2019.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB257.3 million (US$36.3 million), representing a decrease of 56.8% from the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the decreased loan origination volume. The loan facilitation service fees from loans funded by institutional funding partners were RMB77.2 million (US$10.9 million), which represented 30.0% of our total revenue from loan facilitation services, compared with nil from the same period of 2019.

Revenue from post-origination services was RMB35.7 million (US$5.0 million), representing a decrease of 51.3% from the same period of 2019. The decrease was due to the lower loan origination as well as the disposal of Shanghai Caiyin Asset Management Co,. Ltd (“Caiyin”) that previously provided certain post-origination loan services.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB63.9 million (US$9.0 million), representing a decrease of 46.0% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to decreased volume of loans facilitated by the Company.

Allowance for uncollectible receivables and contract assets was RMB30.4 million (US$4.3 million), representing a decrease of 30.6% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to the decrease in loan origination volume.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB93.4 million (US$13.2 million), representing a decrease of 45.5% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to the decrease in customer acquisition expenses and reduced advertisement spending for promotional activities.

General and administrative expense was RMB38.3 million (US$5.4 million), representing a decrease of 22.4% from the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the decreased share-based compensation expense.

Research and development expense was RMB36.4 million (US$5.1 million), representing a decrease of 32.3% from the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the decreased share-based compensation expense.

Income from operations was RMB51.1 million (US$7.2 million), compared with an operating income of RMB294.7 million in the same period of 2019, and operating loss of RMB28.9 million in the prior quarter.

Net income was RMB39.5 million (US$5.6 million), compared with a net income of RMB254.2 million in the same period of 2019, and net income of RMB22.6 million in the prior quarter.
