Net income of fourth quarter 2020 was RMB 81.1 million, an increase of 259% from a year ago. In light of evolving market dynamics and rapidly changing technologies, we will stay agile and prudent. We will make investments that will enable us to develop synergistic technologies and penetrate new markets.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB340.3 million (US$52.2 million), representing a decrease of 3.5% from the same period of 2019.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB291.3 million (US$44.6 million), representing an increase of 5.3% from the same period of 2019. The increase was primarily due to the increased loan origination volume from the institutional funding partners.

Revenue from post-origination services was RMB3.6 million (US$0.6 million), representing a decrease of 92.6% from the same period of 2019. The decrease was due to the lower outstanding loan balance funded by individual investors.

Other revenue was RMB45.4 million (US$7.0 million), representing an increase of 66.3% from the same period of 2019. The increase was primarily due to the growth of the Company's overseas lending business.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB64.9 million (US$9.9 million), representing a decrease of 17.1% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to the reduced collection costs as the Company no longer provides such services under its new business model.

Allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable, contract assets and loan receivables was RMB20.3 million (US$3.1 million), representing a decrease of 63.8% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to the overall decrease of loan origination volume, as well as the relatively lower credit risk of the new business model.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB117.5 million (US$18.0 million), representing a decrease of 11.3% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to lower customer acquisition expenses and the decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

General and administrative expense was RMB42.9 million (US$6.6 million), representing a decrease of 43.5% from 2019, primarily due to the decrease in share-based compensation expenses allocated to general and administrative expenses.

Research and development expense was RMB41.9 million (US$6.4 million), representing an increase of 8.5% from the same period of 2019, primarily due to the increase in salaries and personnel related expenses, as the Company continued to increase investments into technology development.

Income from operations was RMB52.9 million (US$8.1 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB28.9 million in the same period of 2019.

Gain from de-recognition of other payable associated with disposal of Shanghai Caiyin was a gain of RMB117.0 million (US$17.9 million), compared with nil for the corresponding period in 2019. The gain in this quarter was primarily due to the waived contingent consideration payable of RMB117.0 million related to the disposal of Shanghai Caiyin Asset Management Co, Ltd. (“Shanghai Caiyin”).

Impairment of short-term investment was a loss of RMB32.6 million (US$5.0 million), compared with nil for the corresponding period in 2019. The loss in this quarter was primarily due to the estimated loss related to the convertible notes issued by Cornerstone Management, Inc. held by the Company.

Net income was RMB81.1 million (US$12.4 million), compared with net income of RMB22.6 million in the same period of 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents were RMB117.3 million (US$18.0 million) as of December 31, 2020, compared with RMB122.1 million as of December 31, 2019.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB1,300.2 million (US$199.3 million), representing a decrease of 41.7% from RMB2,230.2 million in 2019.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB1,002.3 million (US$153.6 million), representing a decrease of 42.6% from 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the lower loan origination volume and the shift to institutional funding partners.

Revenue from post-origination services was RMB112.7 million (US$17.3 million), representing a decrease of 57.8% from 2019. The decrease was due to the lower outstanding loan balance funded by individual investors.

Other revenue was RMB185.1 million (US28.4 million), representing a decrease of 14.3% from 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the reduced service fees as the Company no longer provides the automated investment programs after the transition of the Company’s funding sources to institutional funding partners.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB239.2 million (US$36.7 million), representing a decrease of 43.8% from 2019, primarily due to the lower loan origination volume and reduced collection costs as the Company no longer provides such services under its new business model.

Allowance for uncollectible accounts receivable, contract assets and loan receivables was RMB77.3 million (US$11.8 million), representing a decrease of 67.6% from 2019, primarily due to the overall decrease of loan origination volume, as well as the relatively lower credit risk of the new business model.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB375.1 million (US$57.5 million), representing a decrease of 38.1% from 2019, primarily due to lower customer acquisition expenses and reduced advertising spending for promotional activities.

General and administrative expense was RMB155.0 million (US$23.8 million), representing a decrease of 30.8% from 2019, primarily due to the decrease in share-based compensation expenses and the decrease in salaries and personnel related costs, as well as other business-related expenses.

Research and development expense was RMB151.6 million (US$23.2 million), representing a decrease of 24.7% from 2019, primarily due to the decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

Gain from de-recognition of other payable associated with disposal of Shanghai Caiyin was RMB117.0 million (US$17.9 million), compared with nil for the corresponding period in 2019.

Impairment of short-term investment was a loss of RMB67.2 million (US$10.3 million), compared with nil for the corresponding period in 2019. The loss was primarily due to the estimated loss related to the convertible notes issued by Cornerstone Management, Inc. held by the Company.
