As a result, our loan quality and customer stability have both improved substantially. Our monthly cash inflow from interest and fees is not only increasing but also more evenly distributed throughout the first half of this year. Going into the second half of 2018, we have expanded our service offerings to include consumer loans. With an expanded scope of service and a larger customer base, we are confident that we will exhibit continued improvement in our financial results in the second half of the year."

First Six Months 2018 Financial Results

Total Interest and Fee Income

The Company is a microfinance lender which allows it to provide flexible payment terms based on the borrower's cash flow as compared to monthly payment terms of a traditional bank loans. As such interest and fee income may vary from period to period based on the Company's lending policies, terms, and collection cycles of the Company from its borrowers.

Total interest and fee income for the first six months of 2018 increased by 92.4% to RMB50.6 million (US$7.6 million) from RMB26.3 million in the same period of the prior year, driven by the Company's increased loan balances and better loan collections.

Firstly, average loans outstanding increased to RMB803.1 million (US$121.4 million) in the first six months of 2018 from RMB710.2 million in the same period of the prior year. Secondly, in 2018, the Company has made its loan extension criteria more stringent than before and shifted its customer base to businesses that have better and more stable cash generation capabilities. In addition, the Company has intensified its loan collection efforts and made its interest and fee income less back-end intensive than the prior year period.

In 2017, total interest and fee income for the first six months of 2017 accounted for only 22.0% of the full year amount. In contrast, monthly interest and fee income in 2018 has far less variability and more predictability than that in 2017. Consequently, the Company expects its revenue in 2018 to be more evenly distributed throughout the year than in 2017.

Interest expense

Interest expenses on loans decreased to RMB13.6 million (US$2.1 million) for the first six months of 2018from RMB14.8 million in the same period of the prior year. The reduction was mainly due to the decreases in the effective cost of borrowings from 14.9% in the first six months of 2017 to 11.3% in the first six months of 2018, which resulted in a RMB4.0 million decrease in the Company's interest expenses on loans. This was partially offset by an increase in average borrowings from RMB198.1 million in the first six months of 2017 to RMB240.2 million (US$36.3 million) in the first six months of 2018, which resulted in a RMB2.8 million increase in the Company's interest expenses on loans.

Net interest income

Net interest and fee income for the first six months of 2018 was RMB36.8 million (US$5.6 million), representing a 222.8% increase from RMB11.4 million in the same period of the prior year.

Allowance for loan losses

Allowance for loan losses for the first six months of 2018 increased by RMB11.6 million to RMB11.6 million (US$1.8 million). The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the Company's allowance for long outstanding interest and fee receivables.

Operation expenses

Sales and marketing expenses decreased for the first six months of 2018 decreased to RMB0.5 million (US$0.1 million) from RMB1.3 million in the same period of the prior year. The decrease was primarily attributable to the successful implementation of the Company's cost control initiatives.

General and administrative expenses for the first six months of 2018 were RMB6.7 million (US$1.0 million), remaining stable compared to the same period of the prior year.

Net Income and Earnings per ADS

Net income was RMB13.5 million (US$2.0 million) for the first six months of 2018, as compared to RMB2.3 million in the same period of the prior year.

Earnings per ADS for the first six months of 2018 was US$0.10, compared to US$0.07 in the same period of the prior year.

Financial Position

As of June 30, 2018, the size of the Company's loan portfolio was RMB814.9 million (US$123.2 million), a representing a year-on-year growth of 3.0% from RMB791.4 million as of December 31, 2017.

Cash Flow

Net cash generated by operating activities for the first six months of 2018 was RMB11.2 million (US$1.7 million) compared to RMB32.0 million net cash used in operating activities in the same period of prior year.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB0.6 million (US$0.1 million) compared to RMB21.7 million as of December  31, 2017.

Loan receivables, net of accumulated allowance of RMB27.1 million (US$4.1 million), was RMB814.9 million (US$123.2 million) as of June 30, 2018, representing an increase of 3.0% from RMB791.4 million as of December 31, 2017, primarily due to the increase in the Company's total outstanding loans.

Business Outlook

Compared with 2017, the overall operating results in 2018 are expected to be stable and slightly increased, but operating expenses are expected to increase, mainly due to listing expenses and expenditures for research in finance technology. In 2019, the Company will carry out specific business in consumer credit and supply chain credit, and thus both revenue and profit are expected to be increased.
