Notably, our loan origination volume recorded a growth of 77.8%, while our net revenue grew by 57.4% compared to the same quarter of 2022. The expansion and optimization of our network of key financial institution partners were fundamental to our achievements during this quarter.

“In addition, our commitment to borrower acquisition, paired with our strategic initiatives to elevate the quality of our borrower portfolio, has set a foundation for sustainable and high-quality growth. As such, even amidst slight market risk fluctuations this quarter, our risk metrics have consistently maintained their stability. Looking ahead, bolstered by our current growth trajectory and confidence in our strategic direction, we are now adjusting our full year forecast upwards to RMB85 billion.”

Net revenue was RMB1,277.8 million (US$176.2 million), representing an increase of 57.4% from the same period of 2022.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB924.9 million (US$127.5 million), representing an increase of 24.5% 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 RMB352.9 million (US$48.7 million), compared with RMB69.0 for 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 RMB355.8 million (US$49.1 million), compared with 128.3 million for 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 RMB13.8 million (US$1.9 million), representing an increase of 97.1% from the same period of 2022, primarily due to the increased loan volume from overseas markets.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB420.7 million (US$58.0 million), representing an increase of 79.0% from the same period of 2022, primarily due to an increase in borrower acquisition expenses.

General and administrative expense was RMB50.1 million (US$6.9 million), representing an increase of 17.6% from the same period of 2022. The Company recorded higher employee compensation and benefit costs due to the increased share-based compensation expenses.
