"In the first quarter 2021, we were pleased to see the gradual recovery of investment sentiment among high net worth individuals in China," said Mr. Jianda Ni, Jupai's chairman of the board and chief executive officer. "Jupai's total aggregate value of wealth management products distributed increased to RMB 1.87 billion in the first quarter from RMB 1.16 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020 as we continued to improve client experience and develop our product portfolio in line with our Asset Transparency System strategy. We remain optimistic in the company and the long term prospects of China's wealth management industry."

Ms. Min Liu, Jupai's chief financial officer, said, "Jupai continued to improve business performance and profitability. Net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders increased nearly 100% and total number of active clients also resumed growth, increasing 33% compared to the fourth quarter last year. Jupai will continue to implement our key strategies and offer a range of more diverse high-quality products and service for high net worth clients."

[1] Jupai's non-GAAP financial measures are derived from adjusting the corresponding GAAP financial measures by excluding the effects of share-based compensation.

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

[3] "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.

FIRST QUARTER 2021 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB83.7 million, a 13.4% decrease from the corresponding period in 2020, primarily due to decreases in one-time commissions and recurring service fees.

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 share-based compensation. 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, 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 and share options. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.
