Pursuant to Rule 13d-2 promulgated under the Act, this Schedule 13D/A (this “Amendment No. 6”) amends and supplements the Original 13D Filings. Except as specifically provided herein, this Amendment No. 6 does not modify any of the information previously reported in the Original 13D Filings. All capitalized terms used herein which are not defined herein have the meanings given to such terms in the Original 13D Filings.

Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

Item 3 of the Original 13D Filings is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following at the end thereof:

On December 10, 2021, Ruby Investment distributed in-kind a total of 7,294,541 ADSs of the Issuer owned by Ruby Investment to its shareholders on a pro rata basis, subject to certain adjustments. After the completion of such in-kind distribution, Ruby Investment ceased to own any equity securities of the Issuer. Ruby Finance received a total of 6,276,350 ADSs of the Issuer from Ruby Investment in such in-kind distribution.

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

The fifth paragraph of Item 5 of the Original 13D Filings is hereby amended and restated as follows:

By virtue of Ruby Investment and Ruby Holdings entering into the Amended Shareholders Agreement, the Reporting Persons may be deemed to constitute a “group” with Mr. Hongyi Zhou within the meaning of Rule 13d-5(b) under the Act. As a member of a group, each Reporting Person may be deemed to beneficially own the Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by the members of the group as a whole. Neither the filing of the Original 13D Filings nor this Amendment No. 6 nor any of their contents, however, shall be deemed to constitute an admission by the Reporting Persons that any of them is the beneficial owner of any of the 44,769,300 Ordinary Shares that are beneficially owned by Mr. Hongyi Zhou. Each Reporting Person expressly disclaims beneficial ownership in such 44,769,300 Ordinary Shares beneficially owned by Mr. Hongyi Zhou.
