[1] The U.S. dollars (US$) amounts disclosed in this press release, except for those transaction amounts that were actually settled in U.S. dollars, are presented solely for the convenience of the reader. The conversion of Renminbi (RMB) into U.S. dollars (US$) in this press release is based on the noon buying rate on March 31, 2020, as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, which was RMB7.0808 to US$1.00. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on the Renminbi amounts.

[2] Jupai's non-GAAP financial measures are derived from adjusting the corresponding GAAP financial measures by excluding the effects of share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets resulted from business acquisitions.

[3] "Active clients" for a given period refers to clients who purchase wealth management products distributed by Jupai at least once during that given period.

[4] "Assets under management" or "AUM" of Jupai refers to the amount of capital contributions made by investors to the funds managed by the Company, for which the Company is entitled to receive management fees. The amount of AUM of Jupai is recorded and carried based on the historical cost of the contributed assets instead of fair market value of assets for almost all AUM of Jupai. For assets denominated in currencies other than Renminbi, the AUM are translated into Renminbi upon their contribution, without interim value adjustments solely due to changes in foreign exchange rates. As a result, Jupai's management fees for almost all its AUM are calculated based on the historical cost balance of the AUM.

"Our cost control measures helped to drive improved bottom line results compared to the first quarter of 2019, even as our top-line performance remained under pressure due to the COVID-19 outbreak," said Mr. Jianda Ni, Jupai's chairman of the board and chief executive officer. "We remain confident for the future prospects for Jupai and China's wealth management industry, which has been reflected in the US$10 million share repurchase program we announced in late February 2020. We will continue to focus on our core strategies: improving our cost controls and increasing operating efficiency, enhancing our product portfolio, optimizing our risk control system, improving project transparency and seeking potential overseas growth opportunities."

Ms. Min Liu, Jupai's chief financial officer, said, "Reflecting our continuous efforts to streamline costs, Jupai achieved another sequential reduction in operating expenses in the first quarter of 2020. Our total operating cost and expenses declined by 35% and cost of revenues were down by 32%. We expect to continue improving our bottom-line in the quarters ahead as we further enhance operating efficiencies."

FIRST QUARTER 2020 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB96.6 million (US$13.6 million), a 65.6% decrease from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily due to decreases in one-time commissions, recurring management fees and other service fees.

  • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB39.5 million (US$5.6 million), a 32.6% decrease from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily as a result of a decrease in the aggregate value of wealth management products distributed by the Company.
  • Net revenues from recurring management fees for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB25.3 million (US$3.6 million), an 86.8% decrease from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily due to the decrease in carried interest and the value of assets under management. RMB31.9 thousand (US$4.5 thousand) and RMB127.4 million carried interest was recognized as part of Jupai's recurring management fees in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.
  • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB31.8 million (US$4.5 million), a 95.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily because the Company provided ongoing services to more product suppliers. The Company recognized RMB0.4 million (US$0.06 million) and nil variable performance fees in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.
  • Net revenues from other service fees for the first quarter of 2020 were nil, as compared to RMB13.9 million from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily due to a decrease in sub-advisory fees collected from other companies.

  • Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB62.0 million (US$8.8 million), a decrease of 64.8% from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily due to decreased compensation to wealth management advisors and client managers, as a result of the decrease in the aggregate value of wealth management products distributed by the Company and the cost control measures the Company adopted.
  • Selling expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB19.9 million (US$2.8 million), a decrease of 63.3% from the corresponding period in 2019, primarily due to the decrease in marketing and promotion expenses as a result of cost control and the decrease in revenues.
  • General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB35.3 million (US$5.0 million), a decrease of 43.7% from the corresponding period in 2019, mainly due to the cost control measures the Company adopted.
  • Other operating income (government subsidies) received by the Company for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB8.5 million (US$1.2 million), as compared to nil from the corresponding period in 2019.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets related to acquisition. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures as set forth in the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measure used by the Company may be prepared differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company's operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed non-GAAP net income results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impacts of share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets related to acquisition, to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shares per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin attributable to ordinary shareholders provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares, share options and amortization of intangible assets related to acquisition. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.
