Notably in the first quarter, we continued to capitalize on the market demand shift toward credit cards, as evidenced by a 400% increase in credit card volume on a year-over-year basis. The accelerated growth in our credit card business illustrates both the scalability and efficiency of our unique platform model as well as our robust user engagement capabilities.
Oscar Chen, Chief Financial Officer of Jianpu said “Our first quarter results continued to demonstrate our solid growth trajectory”. “During the quarter, we realized total revenues of RMB335.7 million, exceeding our guidance, with impressive growth across all business streams. Even with modest growth in loans recommendation services due to seasonality and market adjustments within the new regulatory framework, we successfully captured the shift of user demand and achieved remarkable performance in our credit card recommendation services, delivering a 718% year-over-year growth, driven by both volume growth and unit price increases. On the bottom line, we continued our positive momentum with non-GAAP adjusted net loss decreasing by 35.9% from the year-ago period, and 34.7% from the fourth quarter of 2017.”
