("Jianpu," or the "Company") (NYSE: JT), a leading independent open platform for the discovery and recommendation of financial products in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Revenues from recommendation services for loans increased by 25.3% to RMB102.9 million (US$14.1 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB82.1 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to the increase in the number of loan applications. Revenues from recommendation services for credit cards decreased by 31.8% to RMB88.3 million (US$12.1 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB129.5 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to the decrease in the credit card volume.

Through our continued efforts to enhance operational efficiency and to optimize cost structure, our ROI[3] experienced a remarkable 5.9 percentage points increase year-over-year, reaching 141.2%, and our net loss was RMB6.4 million (US$0.9 million) in the third quarter of 2023."

"Moreover, we are cognizant of the immense opportunities coming with the advancement of AI, and will target to develop flexible and low-coupling AI solutions with coverage in AI product architecture, and will continue to empower our ecosystem partners in their digital transformation with digital technology and artificial intelligence," concluded Mr. Ye.

"During the third quarter of 2023, we persistently focused on achieving a diversified revenue structure, improving operating efficiency and executing cost optimization initiatives. In this quarter, our loan recommendation services and marketing and other services[1] continued to grow, leading to a more balanced revenue structure. Driven by our improved productivity and continued efficiency improvement, we trimmed our Non-GAAP adjusted net loss[2] significantly by 40.4% year-over-year to RMB5.6 million (US$0.8 million) in the third quarter of 2023," said Oscar Chen, Chief Financial Officer of Jianpu.

Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2023 decreased by 4.9% to RMB255.6 million (US$35.0 million) from RMB268.8 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in revenues from recommendation services, partially offset by the increase of revenues from marketing and other services[1].

Revenues from recommendation services decreased by 9.6% to RMB191.2 million (US$26.2 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB211.6 million in the same period of 2022.

Revenues from recommendation services for credit cards decreased by 31.8% to RMB88.3 million (US$12.1 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB129.5 million in the same period of 2022. As certain credit card issuers lowered their marketing budget from the second quarter of 2023, credit card volume decreased by 27.3% to approximately 0.8 million in the third quarter of 2023 from 1.1 million in the same period of 2022. The average fee per credit card was RMB115.2 (US$15.8) and RMB116.4 in the third quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Revenues from recommendation services for loans increased by 25.3% to RMB102.9 million (US$14.1 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB82.1 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to an increase in the number of loan applications. The number of loan applications was approximately 7.4 million in the third quarter of 2023, representing a 48.0% increase from that in the same period of 2022. The average fee per loan application was RMB14.0 (US$1.9) and RMB16.5 in the third quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Through the cooperation, which is mandated by the relevant PRC regulation, we, together with the licensed credit reporting agencies, provide data-based risk management services to the financial institutions and share the economic interests accordingly.

Revenues from marketing and other services[1] increased by 41.3% to RMB45.5 million (US$6.2 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB32.2 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to the growth of the Company's insurance brokerage services and other new businesses.

Cost of promotion and acquisition decreased by 7.0% to RMB167.6 million (US$23.0 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB180.2 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to the efficiency improvements and, to a lesser extent, the decrease in revenues from recommendation services.

Cost of operation decreased by 30.5% to RMB14.6 million (US$2.0 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB21.0 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in data acquisition costs, as well as the decrease in software development and maintenance costs related to the big data and system-based risk management services, which partially resulted from the deconsolidation of Newsky Wisdom.

Sales and marketing expenses was RMB33.2 million (US$4.6 million) in the third quarter of 2023, compared with RMB34.5 million in the same period of 2022.

Research and development expenses decreased by 8.4% to RMB26.2 million (US$3.6 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB28.6 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to the decreases in payroll expenses and rental expenses resulting from the Company's continued efforts in cost optimization.

General and administrative expenses was RMB22.6 million (US$3.1 million) in the third quarter of 2023, compared with RMB23.0 million in the same period of 2022. The change was primarily due to the decreases in rental expenses and travel and entertainment expenses, partially offset by the increases in allowance for credit losses and payroll expenses.

Impairment of goodwill and intangible assets was RMB13.3 million in the third quarter of 2022 related to the impairment of the goodwill and intangible assets of Newsky Wisdom, which experienced a decline in revenue due to the impact of COVID-19 prevention and control measures. There was no such impairment loss in the same period of 2023.

Loss from operations was RMB8.7 million (US$1.2 million) in the third quarter of 2023, compared with RMB31.9 million in the same period of 2022. Operating loss margin was 3.4% in the third quarter of 2023, compared with 11.9% in the same period of 2022. The decrease in operating loss was mainly attributable to the decrease in costs and expenses resulting from efficiency improvement and cost optimization.

Others, net decreased by 97.3% to RMB0.2 million (US$0.0 million) in the third quarter of 2023 from RMB7.5 million in the same period of 2022. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in tax benefits for value-added tax.

Net loss was RMB6.4 million (US$0.9 million) in the third quarter of 2023 compared with RMB25.1 million in the same period of 2022. Net loss margin was 2.5% in the third quarter of 2023, compared with 9.3% in the same period of 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures 

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net (loss)/income, each a Non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net (loss)/income help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the expenses and gains that the Company include in (loss)/income from operations and net (loss)/income. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net (loss)/income provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by its management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net (loss)/income should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternatives to net (loss)/income or any other measure of performance or as indicators of the Company's operating performance. 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. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company's data. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before share-based compensation expenses, investment impairment loss, impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and investment gain of deconsolidation of subsidiaries. EBITDA represents net (loss)/income before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted net (loss)/income represents net (loss)/income before share-based compensation expenses, investment impairment loss, impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, investment gain of deconsolidation of subsidiaries and tax effects of above Non-GAAP adjustments.

For more information on this Non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table captioned "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP results" set forth at the end of this press release.

[1] Starting from the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company updated the description of its revenue stream "advertising, marketing and other services" to "marketing and other services" to provide more relevant and clear information. It also updated the revenue description in comparative periods to conform to the current classification.

[2] Non-GAAP adjusted net loss represents net loss before share-based compensation expenses, investment impairment loss, impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, investment gain of deconsolidation of subsidiaries and tax effects of above Non-GAAP adjustments. See "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this press release for more details about Non-GAAP adjusted net loss. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss margin equals Non-GAAP adjusted net loss divided by total revenues.

[3] ROI represents revenue of recommendation services, marketing and other services divided by cost of promotion and acquisition.

[4] In May 2023, the Group (Jianpu, its subsidiaries, and VIEs together are referred to as the "Group".) entered into a share transfer agreement with the founder and minority shareholder of Newsky Wisdom, which is one of the subsidiaries of the Group before the completion of the share transfer. During the second quarter of 2023, according to the share transfer agreement, the Group transferred 35.5% shares to the founder of Newsky Wisdom and consequently became a minority shareholder of Newsky Wisdom, and the Group no longer has control over Newsky Wisdom. The investment gain of RMB7.1 million was recognized in the second quarter of 2023 accordingly.
In June 2022, Databook Tech Ltd ("Databook"), one of the Company's subsidiaries, made a cash distribution to its shareholders, through which the Company received a portion of the cash distribution. Databook also issued additional shares to one minority shareholder and changed the Company's board seat in Databook to one director. The Company consequently became a minority shareholder of Databook and no longer has control over Databook. The investment gain of RMB6.1 million was realized in the second quarter of 2022, and RMB17.0 million was realized in the fourth quarter of 2022.

[5] Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA before share-based compensation expenses, investment impairment loss, impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and investment gain of deconsolidation of subsidiaries. EBITDA represents net (loss)/income before interest income and expenses, income tax benefits from net loss, and depreciation and amortization. See "Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" for more details.
