Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB866.5 million (US$126.2 million), representing an increase of 94.1% from the same period of 2022. The increase was primarily due to increased loan origination volume from the Company’s institutional funding partners.

Other revenue was RMB255.7 million (US$37.2 million), representing an increase of 295.2% from the same period of 2022. The increase was mainly driven by the growth in revenue from individual investor referral services and guarantee income from financial guarantee services.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB274.2 million (US$39.9 million), representing an increase of 193.6% from the same period of 2022, primarily due to increased loan origination volume and expenses related to financial guarantee services.

Allowance for uncollectible receivables, contract assets, loans receivable and others was RMB6.7 million (US$1.0 million), compared with RMB4.0 million in the first quarter of 2022, primarily due to the increased loan volume from overseas markets.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB380.8 million (US$55.4 million), representing an increase of 155.9% from the same period of 2022, primarily due to an increase in borrower acquisition expenses and commission fees for partnership referrals.
