Mr. Haisheng Wu, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Qifu Technology, commented, “As macro-economic headwind persisted in the first quarter, we continued to take a prudent approach to manage our business and focus our effort on improving the quality and profitability of our operations. With consistent execution, we delivered another quarter of solid results.

During the quarter, we achieved better overall return on our loan portfolio through improved cost efficiency and optimized asset allocation. On balance sheet lending and ICE both demonstrated strong growth momentum. The overall increased contribution from non-credit risk bearing services helped us mitigate some risks in a challenging environment. In the first quarter, we reduced user acquisition costs through further diversifying our user acquisition channels and deploying a prudent user acquisition approach. Meanwhile, we continued to solidify our relationship with financial institution partners. With the help of strong ABS issuance, we significantly lowered overall funding costs to another historic low.

Looking ahead, we intend to continue to take a disciplined risk management approach in a still uncertain macro environment, and further optimize our business mix to drive better profitability and efficiency. We believe such effort will not only help us better navigate through the current environment but also position us well to capture long-term opportunities through new platform models, enhanced products and collaborative partnerships.”

“We are pleased to report another quarter of strong financial results in an uncertain macro environment. Total net revenue was RMB4.15 billion and Non-GAAP net income was RMB1.20 billion for the first quarter,” Mr. Alex Xu, Chief Financial Officer, commented. “During the quarter, we generated approximately RMB1.96 billion cash from operations, and total cash and cash equivalent*11 was RMB8.32 billion at the quarter ending. Our strong financial positions enable us to continue to generate healthy returns to our shareholders through dividend and share repurchase. We started to execute our 2024 share repurchase plan on April 1, 2024, at a pace faster than the time schedule thus far.”

Mr. Yan Zheng, Chief Risk Officer, added, “The first quarter was still a challenging period for risk management as economic uncertainties continued to impact some borrowers’ personal finance conditions. However, as we took further actions to mitigate the risks by reducing exposures to higher risk and longer duration loans, driving more non-credit risk bearing services and optimizing our collection operations, we started to see noticeable improvements in the risk metrics of new loans facilitated in the first quarter and modest improvements in key leading indicators of overall loan portfolio. Day-1 delinquency rate*12 was 4.9% in the first quarter, and 30-day collection rate*13 was 85.1%. Our prudent actions are anticipated to lead to positive impacts on risk metrics and we expect to see further gradual improvement throughout this year.”

11 Including “Cash and cash equivalents”, “Restricted cash”, and “Security deposit prepaid to third-party guarantee companies”.
12 “Day-1 delinquency rate” is defined as (i) the total amount of principal that became overdue as of a specified date, divided by (ii) the total amount of principal that was due for repayment as of such specified date.

Other services fees were RMB71.5 million (US$9.9 million), compared to RMB43.8 million in the same period of 2023, and RMB69.8 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and sequential increases were mainly due to the increases in late payment fees under the capital-heavy model.

Funding costs were RMB156.0 million (US$21.6 million), compared to RMB159.0 million in the same period of 2023 and RMB161.0 million in the prior quarter.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB415.6 million (US$57.6 million), compared to RMB422.2 million in the same period of 2023 and RMB551.6 million in the prior quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use Non-GAAP financial measure, which is adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expenses. Reconciliations of our Non-GAAP financial measures to our U.S. GAAP financial measures are set forth in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details on the Non-GAAP financial measures.

We use Non-GAAP income from operation, Non-GAAP operating margin, Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income margin, Non-GAAP net income attributed to the Company and Non-GAAP net income per fully diluted ADS in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Non-GAAP income from operation represents income from operation excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP operating margin is equal to Non-GAAP income from operation divided by total net revenue. Non-GAAP net income represents net income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income margin is equal to Non-GAAP net income divided by total net revenue. Non-GAAP net income attributed to the Company represents net income attributed to the Company excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net income per fully diluted ADS represents net income excluding share-based compensation expenses per fully diluted ADS. Such adjustments have no impact on income tax. We believe that Non-GAAP income from operation, Non-GAAP operating margin, Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income margin, Non-GAAP net income attributed to the Company and Non-GAAP net income per fully diluted ADS help identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that we include in results based on U.S. GAAP. We believe that Non-GAAP income from operation and Non-GAAP net income provide useful information about our 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. Our Non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, our calculation of Non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.
