Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB510.8 million (US$71.5 million), representing an increase of 0.5% from the same period of 2018.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB396.5 million (US$55.5 million), representing an increase of 6.6% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to the increased loan origination volume compared with the same period of 2018.

Revenue from post-origination services was RMB59.3 million (US$8.3 million), representing a decrease of 3.4% from the same period of 2018. The decrease was due to the disposal of our previously-consolidated affiliated company Shanghai Caiyin Asset Management Co, Ltd. ("Caiyin"), which provided certain post-origination loan services.

Origination and servicing expense was RMB101.1 million (US$14.1 million), representing an increase of 2.7% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to higher expenses associated with credit assessment.

Allowance for uncollectible receivables and contract assets was RMB67.8 million (US$9.5 million), representing an increase of 156.9% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to the increase in loan origination volume and unfavorable changes in estimated collectability, which is caused by difficult industry conditions.

Sales and marketing expense was RMB152.4 million (US$21.3million), representing an increase of 33.8% from the same period of 2018, driven by an increase in advertising expenses to promote the Company's brand.

General and administrative expense was RMB47.5 million (US$6.6 million), representing an increase of 76.7% from the same period of 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased staffing cost, as well as certain share-based compensation expense allocated to general and administrative expenses.

Research and development expense was RMB58.6 million (US$8.2 million), representing an increase of 60.0% from the same period of 2018, as the Company continued to invest in technology.

Income from operations was RMB83.5 million (US$11.7 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB 55.8 million in the same period of 2018.

Net income attributable to Jiayin shareholders was RMB81.8 million (US$11.4 million), compared with a net loss of RMB44.0 million in the same period of 2018.

Cash and cash equivalents at quarter-end were RMB238.0 million (US$33.3 million), compared with RMB359.8 million in the same period of 2018.

During the quarter, the Company conducted a business combination with Geerong Yun (Shanghai) Enterprise Development Co., Ltd. ("Geerong Yun"), an innovative fintech-driven platform connecting financial institutions. Prior to the combination, Geerong Yun and Jiayin were under the common control of Mr. Dinggui Yan, the Founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Jiayin. The combination has been retrospectively reflected in the financial statements from the beginning of 2019, but not to prior periods as the impact was not material. The consolidation is intended to support the growth of Jiayin's institutional funding sources, as well as to strengthen our big data analytics and fintech R&D. In addition, during this quarter, the Company disposed Caiyin, the details of the disposal was provided in the Company's press releases furnished to the SEC on form 6-Ks, including the relevant exhibits which dated on September 16, 2019 and October 24, 2019, respectively.
