Mr. Yan Dinggui, the Company’s Founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We continued to generate strong growth momentum in the first quarter of 2022 despite increasing macroeconomic uncertainties and challenges posed by the resurgence of COVID-19. During the quarter, our net revenue grew by 49.0% to RMB511.2 million while net income increased by 54.3% to RMB144.6 million from the same period of 2021. Such strong top-line growth and profitability improvement were highlighted by our robust operating performance as our loan origination volume grew by 95.4% year over year to RMB8,153 million in the first quarter of 2022. Going forward, our commitments are to strengthen our platform’s risk management capabilities, grow our borrower base, refine our product portfolios, and accelerate our global business expansion. While we remain cognizant of the evolving macroeconomic landscape, we believe that our continuous efforts in such areas will sustain us through the near-term headwinds and position us well for emerging opportunities.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB511.2 million (US$80.6 million), representing an increase of 49.0% from the same period of 2021.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB446.5 million (US$70.4 million), representing an increase of 39.1% from the same period of 2021. The increase was primarily due to the increased loan origination volume from the Company’s institutional funding partners.

Other revenue was RMB64.7million (US$10.2 million), compared with RMB22.2 million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly driven by revenue generated from individual investor referral services, which was partially offset by a decrease in revenue from the Company’s overseas business.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB93.4 million (US$14.7 million), representing an increase of 45.7% from the same period of 2021, in line with the increase in the Company’s loan origination volume.

Allowance for receivables and contract assets was RMB4.0 million (US$0.6 million), representing a decrease of 50.0% from the same period of 2021, primarily due to the reduced loan volume from overseas markets.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB148.8 million (US$23.5 million), representing an increase of 63.2% from the same period of 2021, primarily due to an increase in borrower acquisition expenses as well as an increase in the Company’s loan origination volume in the first quarter of 2022.

General and administrative expense was RMB40.7 million (US$6.4 million), representing an increase of 7.7% from the same period of 2021, primarily driven by higher professional service fees.

Research and development expense was RMB41.8 million (US$6.6 million), representing an increase of 48.8% from the same period of 2021, primarily due to higher employee compensation and benefit costs as well as increased professional service fees.

Income from operations was RMB182.5 million (US$28.8 million), compared with RMB113.8 million in the same period of 2021.

Net income was RMB144.6 million (US$22.8 million), compared with RMB93.7 million in the same period of 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents were RMB170.3 million (US$26.9 million) as of March 31, 2022, compared with RMB182.6 million as of December 31, 2021.
