Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 increased by 32.1% to RMB2,448.0 million (US$384.1 million) from RMB1,853.0 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in loan facilitation service fees and post facilitation service fees.

Loan facilitation service fees increased by 56.2% to RMB1,005.1 million (US$157.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB643.3 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in transaction volume.

Post-facilitation service fees increased by 140.4% to RMB422.3 million (US$66.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB175.7 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in outstanding loans served by the Company and the rolling impact of deferred transaction fees.

Guarantee income was RMB624.1 million (US$97.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to RMB667.4 million in the same period of 2020, as a result of improved asset quality. The fair value of quality assurance commitment upon loan origination is released as guarantee income systematically over the term of the loans subject to quality assurance commitment. As we transitioned our business towards better quality borrowers, the fair value of quality assurance commitment upon loan origination decreased due to better asset quality which resulted in the decrease in guarantee income.

Net interest income increased by 44.2% to RMB294.7 million (US$46.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, from RMB204.3 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the outstanding loan balance of on balance sheet loans, partially offset by the decrease in interest rates.

Other revenue decreased by 37.2% to RMB101.9 million (US$16.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB162.2 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the decrease in customer referral fees from other third-party platforms.

Origination, servicing expenses and other cost of revenue increased by 10.6% to RMB514.3 million (US$80.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB464.9 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in employees' expenditures and fees paid to the third party service providers.

Sales and marketing expenses increased by 85.8% to RMB389.4 million (US$61.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB209.6 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in online customer acquisition expenses as a result of increased efforts in acquiring new borrowers on the Company's platform.

Research and development expenses increased by 24.2% to RMB131.9 million (US$20.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, from RMB106.2 million in the same period of 2020, due to increased investments in technology development.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 0.6% to RMB156.3 million (US$24.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to RMB157.3 million in the same period of 2020.

Provision for accounts receivables and other receivables decreased by 64.0% to RMB19.1 million (US$3.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to RMB53.1 million in the same period of 2020 as a result of improved credit quality partially offset by the increase in outstanding loan balances.

Provision for loans receivables was RMB131.0 million (US$20.6 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with RMB-42.5 million in the same period of 2020, and the increase was primarily due to the increase in loan volume of on balance sheet loans partially offset by improved asset quality.

Credit losses for quality assurance commitment were RMB582.5 million (US$91.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to RMB308.7 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in outstanding loan balances partially offset by improved asset quality.

Operating profit decreased by 12.1% to RMB523.5 million (US$82.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB595.6 million in the same period of 2020.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income, which excludes share-based compensation expenses before tax, was RMB560.4 million (US$87.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 8.5% from RMB612.4 million in the same period of 2020.

Other income increased by 1,761.9% to RMB39.1 million (US$6.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB2.1 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to impairment losses recognized for investments in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Income tax credit was RMB87.1 million (US$13.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with income tax expenses of RMB100.4 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to a change in preferential tax rate for certain qualified subsidiaries and the decline in pre-tax profit.

Net profit was RMB649.7 million (US$101.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with RMB497.3 million in the same period of 2020.

Net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company was RMB655.9 million (US$102.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with RMB493.9 million in the same period of 2020.

Diluted net profit per ADS was RMB2.21 (US$0.35) and diluted net profit per share was RMB0.44 (US$0.07), an increase of 28.5% year over year. Non-GAAP diluted net profit per ADS was RMB2.33 (US$0.37) and Non-GAAP diluted net profit per share was RMB0.47 (US$0.07), an increase of 31.6% year over year.
