Despite a macro-economic slowdown and tightening regulatory environment throughout the year, we achieved solid growth, beat guidance and reached an inflection point in the Company's history, ending fiscal 2018 on a high note.

SkyKey, our branded big data and risk management services have been transformational for our financial service partners by integrating big data, AI and machine learning. We look to broaden our curation of products and services as well as explore new verticals while keeping the market apprised of these developments," concluded Mr. Ye.

In addition to expanding revenue scale, our continuous efforts to balance growth initiatives while improving operational efficiencies has paid off as we turned profitable in the fourth quarter, achieving net income of RMB12 million and adjusted net income of RMB39 million. We look forward to the new year as our fundamental strategy has not changed."

Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total revenues from recommendation services increased by 20.3% to RMB659.2 million (US$95.9 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB547.9 million in the same period of 2017.

Revenues from recommendation services for credit cards increased by 144% to RMB289.1 million (US$42.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB118.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, due to the increase in both credit card volume and average fee per credit card. The consumer demand towards credit cards significantly increased, and Jianpu successfully captured the shift of user demand and achieved remarkable performance in the credit card recommendation services. Credit card volume for recommendation services[3] in the fourth quarter of 2018 was approximately 2.6 million, representing a significant increase of approximately 136% from the same period of 2017. The average fee per credit card for recommendation services increased to RMB112.05 (US$16.30) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB104.49 in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Revenues from recommendation services for loans decreased by 13.8% to RMB370.1 million (US$53.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB429.3 million in the same period of 2017. Due to macro slowdown and online lending market adjustments pertaining to the new regulatory framework since December 2017, the loan applications on the Company's platform has experienced fluctuation in volume, while maintaining sequential increase in the average fee per loan application. The number of loan applications on the Company's platform was approximately 24.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of approximately 24.0% from the same period of 2017. The average fee per loan application increased to RMB14.98 (US$2.18) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB13.21 in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Revenues from advertising and marketing services and other services increased by 125% to RMB82.9 million (US$12.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB36.8 million in the same period of 2017, primarily due to the increase in revenues of big data and risk management services including that generated by a subsidiary acquired in June 2018 and, to a lesser extent, the increase in the advertising services.

Cost of revenues increased by 10.3% to RMB67.6 million (US$9.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB61.3 million in the same period of 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in direct costs relating to advertising and marketing services revenue, and consistent with the increase of the revenue from advertising services.

Gross profit increased by 28.9% to RMB674.5 million (US$98.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB523.4 million in the same period of 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to revenue growth. Gross margin was 90.9% in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Sales and marketing expenses increased by 5.3% to RMB526.6 million (US$76.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB500.0 million in the same period of 2017. The increase was mainly due to growth in marketing and advertising expenses and payroll related costs.

Research and development expenses increased by 10.1% to RMB81.7 million (US$11.9 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB74.2 million in the same period of 2017, primarily due to the increase in payroll costs mainly related to the hiring of new R&D staff to further enhance our technology capabilities in terms of big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence, as well as the increase of the amortization of the intangible assets in connection with acquisition.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 26.3% to RMB49.4 million (US$7.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB67.0 million in the same period of 2017. The decrease was primarily due to the recognition of share-based compensation expenses of options with a listing condition upon IPO in the fourth quarter 2017, as well as partially offset by an increase in payroll costs during the fourth quarter of 2018.

Share-based compensation expenses recognized in cost of revenues, sales and marketing expenses, research and development expenses and general and administrative expenses were RMB27.1 million (US$3.9 million) in the fourth quarter 2018 and RMB106.2 million in the same period of 2017 in total.

Income tax expenses were RMB7.2 million (US$1.0 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with income tax expenses of RMB18.5 million in the same period of 2017. Contributed by the optimization of the cost and expenses structure and the lower enacted tax rate of subsidiaries in 2018, the annualized effective tax rate for 2018 decreased.

Net Income was RMB11.9 million (US$1.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with a net loss of RMB136.4 million in the same period of 2017. Net income margin was 1.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with a net loss margin of -23.3% in the same period of 2017. Besides the impact of the decrease in the share-based compensation, the improvement in operating efficiencies, particularly on the front of traffic acquisition and matching capabilities, as well as the benefit from economies of scale, contributed to the net income.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income, which excluded share-based compensation expenses from net income, was RMB39.0 million (US$5.7 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared with adjusted net loss of RMB30.3 million in the same period of 2017.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA[4], which excluded share-based compensation expenses, depreciation and amortization, interest income and expenses, and income tax expenses or benefits from net income, for the fourth quarter of 2018 was an income of RMB54.1 million (US$7.9 million), compared with a loss of RMB9.5 million in the same period of 2017.

The number of loan applications on the Company's platform was approximately 71.3 million in the fiscal year 2018, representing a decrease of approximately 20.6% from the prior year, mainly attributable to the market adjustments within the new regulatory framework since December 2017, and the slowdown in lending activities due to credit and liquidity tightening in the third quarter of 2018. The average fee per loan application increased to RMB14.24 (US$2.07) in the fiscal year 2018 from RMB12.46 in the prior year.

Cost of revenues increased by 55.3% to RMB223.3 million (US$32.5 million) in the fiscal year 2018 from RMB143.8 million in the prior year.

General and administrative expenses increased by 90.4% to RMB178.4 million (US$25.9 million) in the fiscal year 2018 from RMB93.7 million in the prior year.

Income tax benefits were RMB4.5 million (US$0.7 million) in the fiscal year 2018, compared with the income tax expenses of RMB28.4 million in the prior year. Contributed by the optimization of the cost and expenses structure, the annualized tax rate for 2018 decreased. In addition, the Company's domestic subsidiaries completed their 2017 annual tax fillings with relevant tax authority in May 2018, which resulted in a change of tax positions in the income tax provision and deferred tax assets recognized as of December 31, 2017.

Net loss decreased by 20.9% to RMB159.8 million (US$23.2 million) in the fiscal year 2018 from RMB202.1 million in the prior year. Net margin was -7.9% in the fiscal year 2018, improved from -14.0% in the prior year.

Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net (loss)/income presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
