Mr. Kent Li, President of the Company, commented, “We are pleased to start 2024 with a solid financial performance in the first quarter. We continued to implement our strategy of proactively and dynamically adjusting loan volumes based on close monitoring of asset quality dynamics and this, again, proved effective in securing our profitability. As a result, despite a year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decline in the loan volume, both our top and bottom lines increased on a yearly and quarterly basis, with notable improvements in profits.”

“In the first quarter, the total loan amount facilitated and originated decreased by 11% year-over-year and 18% quarter-over-quarter to RMB22 billion, in line with our guidance. Our total outstanding loan balance was RMB44 billion at the end of March 2024. Delinquency rates for outstanding loans past due for 31-60 days and 91-180 days were 1.61% and 4.37%, respectively, at the end of the quarter, compared to 1.05% and 2.40% a year ago. The increase in overdue loans as a percentage of total outstanding loans is primarily due to lower outstanding loan balances at this quarter end as a result of the proactive control of loans facilitated and originated that we initiated in the fourth quarter of last year. Excluding the impact of the reduced loan volume, asset quality begun to stabilize during this quarter. We remain committed to closely monitor borrowers through the entire credit cycle, continuously strengthening our risk control system, and taking all necessary measures to mitigate risks.”

“We are confident in our future profitable growth. With stabilized asset quality, we have clearer visibility on the loan volume for 2024 under our current strategy and expect the total loan amount facilitated and originated for the full year to be around RMB100 billion. Our commitment to sustainable profitability and shareholder value creation is unwavering.”

Mr. Frank Fuya Zheng, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, added, “We are very pleased with the solid financial results we achieved in the first quarter. Total net revenue was RMB1.2 billion, up 20% year-over-year and 1% quarter-over-quarter despite the decline in loan volumes. Thanks to our strict risk controls and improved operational efficiency, net income increased by 28% year-over-year and 92% quarter-over-quarter to RMB363 million. This once again demonstrates the effectiveness of our strategy, strong execution, and commitment to ensuring long-term profitability. Beginning this quarter, we combined borrower acquisition costs from origination and servicing expenses, indirect expenses of the borrower acquisitions from general and administrative expenses and sales and marketing expenses into borrower acquisitions and marketing expenses within total operating costs and expenses to provide a clearer breakdown of the Company’s expenses for investors. Going forward, we will continue to improve asset quality while optimizing borrower acquisition costs to drive sustainable profitability.”

“Our board of directors has authorized a new program to repurchase up to $20 million worth of our shares which will be effective from June 1, 2024 through November 30, 2025. We are confident in our position as a public company and will drive long-term returns for our shareholders.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

In evaluating our business, we consider and use non-GAAP measures as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. We present the non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. We believe that the use of the non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance and help investors to identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain income or expenses that we include in income (loss) from operations and net income (loss). We also believe that the non-GAAP measures provide useful information about our core operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making.

We use in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: (i) adjusted net income (loss), (ii) adjusted net income (loss) per basic ADS, and (iii) adjusted net income (loss) per diluted ADS, each of which excludes share-based compensation expense, impairment losses on financial investments, income (loss) from financial investments and impairment losses on long-term investments. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

We mitigate these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP results” set forth at the end of this press release.

[1] Starting in the first quarter of 2024, management has concluded to separate expenses related to borrower acquisitions from origination and servicing expenses and indirect expenses of the borrower acquisitions

from general and administrative expenses to a single line item as these expenses become more and more significant and thus deemed to be useful to financial statement users. Furtherly, management has

determined to embed the sales and marketing expenses, which is not considered as material, in other line item. In conclusion, management has decided to combine these two line items into one captioned borrower

acquisitions and marketing expenses. Management has correspondingly conformed prior period presentation to current period presentation to enhance comparability. This change in presentation does not affect any

subtotal line on the face of consolidated statements of comprehensive income.
