First Six Months 2022 Financial Results

Interest Income on Loans

Interest income on loans primarily consists of the accrued interest of Stage 3 credit-impaired loans. Accrued interest is the present value of the estimated future cash flows of credit-impaired loans expected to be recovered, discounted at the loan's original effective interest rate.  Interest income on loans for the first six months of 2022 decreased by 30.0% to RMB57.8 million (US$8.9 million) from RMB82.6 million in the same period of the prior year.  The decrease was primarily attributable to the revaluation of the present value of interest receivable and estimated recovery date.

Interest Expense

Interest expenses on loans increased to RMB10.0 million (US$1.5 million) for the first six months of 2022 from RMB9.5 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase was mainly due to the company accrued RMB1.4 million (US$0.2 million) guarantee fee in the current reporting period.

Net Interest Income

Net interest income for the first six months of 2022 was RMB47.7 million (US$7.3 million), representing a 34.5% decrease from RMB72.8 million in the same period of the prior year.

Credit Impairment Losses

The Company maintains the allowance for loan losses, as presented in the financial statements, at a level it considers to be reasonable by management to absorb probable losses inherent in the loan portfolio as of each balance sheet date.  The management evaluates the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses on a regular basis or more often as necessary. The allowance is based on the past loan loss history, known and inherent risks in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower's ability to repay, the estimated value of any underlying collateral, composition of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions and other relevant factors. This evaluation is inherently subjective as it requires material estimates that may be susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available.

The Company reversed the credit impairment losses to RMB16.4 million for the first six months of 2022. The increase was primarily attributable to the revaluation of the present value of interest receivable and estimated recovery date during the first six months of 2022. Therefore, the Company reversed the over-provision of credit impairment losses recognised in the prior period. Although the economic and business environment for SMEs remained challenging and some of the Company's loan customers were experiencing financial difficulty, the Company believed that the recoverability of loan was much more optimistic due to effective government controls of the epidemic and therefore no additional credit impairment loss was provided for the first six months of 2022. The Company assessed credit loss allowance on these credit-impaired loans based on an assessment of the recoverable cash flows under a range of scenarios, including the realization of any collateral held where appropriate.  The loss provisions held represent the difference between the present value of the cash flows expected to be recovered, discounted at the instrument's original effective interest rate, and the gross carrying value of the instrument prior to any credit impairment.

Operation Expenses

Operating expenses consisted solely of general and administrative expenses, which increased from RMB2.5 million for the first six months of 2021 to RMB3.9 million (US$0.6 million) for the first six months of 2022.  The increase was primarily attributable to accrual and payment for fee of services rendered by auditor and counsel in current reporting period.

Net Profit and Earnings per ADS

As a result of the foregoing, net profit was RMB60.2 million (US$9.3 million) for the first six months of 2022, as compared to RMB70.7 million (US$10.9 million) in the same period of the prior year.

Earnings per ADS for the first six months of 2022 was US$0.35, compared to US$0.52 in the same period of the prior year.

Statements of Financial Position

As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash and restricted cash of RMB197,000 (US$29,000) compared to RMB396,000 as of December 31, 2021.  Most cash deposits with the bank are frozen by court orders as the Company is involved in multiple legal proceedings, administrative proceedings, claims and other litigation as a result of overdue payments to service providers and loans payable to the lenders. The Company has actively worked with Wuchang District Court to broker a series of settlement solution for its obligations with a hope of reaching a deal.

Loans receivable, net of credit impairment losses of RMB581.5 million (US$86.8 million), was RMB628.6 million (US$93.8 million) as of June 30, 2022, representing an increase of 13.2% from RMB555.1 million as of December 31, 2021, primarily due to accrual of interest. Accrued interest is the present value of the estimated future cash flows of credit-impaired loans expected to be recovered, discounted at the loan's original effective interest rate.

As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2022, loans payable to third parties, related parties and shareholders, amounting to RMB161.6 million (US$24.1 million) are all overdue. Although certain loans payable were negotiated with new schedules of repayments, the Company is unable to fulfil those obligations due to liquidity issues.

Statements of Cash Flows

Net cash used by operating activities for the first six months of 2022 was RMB29,000 compared to RMB1,000 net cash used by operating activities in the same period of the prior year and the Company has very limited liquidity available to fulfil its obligations for the first six months of 2022.

COVID-19

Since December 2019, COVID-19 has become widespread in China and many other countries. The pandemic has resulted in mandatory quarantines, travel restrictions, and the temporary closure of stores and facilities in China and other parts of the world for the past few months, and certain areas remain subject to such heightened measures. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 a pandemic. As a company headquartered in Wuhan, the epicenter of the pandemic in 2020, with substantially all operating activities, revenues and workforce in Wuhan, our results of operations and financial outlook were materially and adversely affected by the outbreak of COVID-19 including, but not limited to, delays in loan payments and collection of accounts receivable, and decrease in business development.

The outbreak of COVID-19 and the resulting widespread health crisis has also adversely affected economies and financial markets globally, which could result in an economic downturn that could affect our operations and future revenue and operating results.

While we have undertaken a series of mitigating initiates and efforts to alleviate impact of COVID -19 on our business, including but not limited to, proactively working with our customers to collect payments and renegotiating of the repayment schedule with our creditors as well as carefully controlling our administrative expenses. There is no assurance that these initiatives and efforts will successfully mitigate the impact. In addition, our business operations could be disrupted if any of our employees is suspected of having or has COVID-19 or any other epidemic disease, since it could require our employees to be quarantined and/or our offices to be closed for disinfection or other remedial measures.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be contained in China, waves of new infections still occur from time to time. While vaccines for COVID-19 are being, and have been developed, there is no guarantee that any such vaccine will be effective, work as expected or be made available or will be accepted on a significant scale and in a timely manner. Furthermore, variations of virus were recently found on confirmed cases outside China. The outlook for COVID-19 remains fluid and its long-term implications on our business and results of operations are uncertain. The extent to which this outbreak impacts our results of operations will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and unpredictable, including new information that may emerge concerning the severity of this outbreak and future actions, if any, to contain this outbreak or treat its impact, among others. We are closely monitoring the pandemic and its impact on us.
