First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB343.1 million (US$52.4 million), representing an increase of 9.4% from the same period of 2020.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB320.9 million (US$49.0 million), representing an increase of 24.7% from the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily due to the increased loan origination volume from our institutional funding partners.

Revenue from post-origination services was nil, representing a decrease of 100.0% from the same period of 2020. The decrease was due to the outstanding loan balance of our legacy P2P lending business being reduced to zero in November 2020.

Other revenue was RMB22.2 million (US$3.4 million), representing an increase of 8.3% from the same period of 2020. The increase was primarily due to the development of the company's overseas business.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB64.1 million (US$9.8 million), representing an increase of 0.3% from the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in credit assessment expense resulting from higher loan origination volume partially offset by reduced collection costs as the Company no longer provides such services under its new business model.

Allowance for uncollectible receivables, contract assets, loans receivable and others was RMB8.0 million (US$1.2 million), representing a decrease of 73.7% from the same period of 2020, primarily due to the relatively lower credit risk of the new business model.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB91.2 million (US$13.9 million), representing a decrease of 2.4% from the same period of 2020, primarily due to the decrease in share-based compensation expense partially offset by higher borrower acquisition expenses.

General and administrative expense was RMB37.8 million (US$5.8 million), representing a decrease of 1.3% from the same period of 2020, primarily due to lower rental cost partially offset by the increase in other business-related expenses.

Research and development expense was RMB28.1 million (US$4.3 million), representing a decrease of 22.8% from the same period of 2020, primarily due to a more streamlined team in technology related departments.

Income from operations was RMB113.8 million (US$17.4 million), compared with an operating income of RMB51.1 million in the same period of 2020.

Net income was RMB93.7 million (US$14.3 million), compared with net income of RMB39.5 million in the same period of 2020.

Cash and cash equivalents were RMB123.3 million (US$18.8 million) as of March 31, 2021, compared with RMB117.3 million as of December 31, 2020.
