[1] Total loan volume facilitated is defined as the total principal amount of loans facilitated on our marketplace and referred to other third-parties during the relevant period. We started to provide recommendation services by referring certain borrowers to financial partners since December 2018.

[2] "Gross billing amount" is defined as the sum of (i) the aggregated loan facilitation fees charged to borrowers before cash incentives, and (ii) the recommendation service fees received from financial partners during the relevant period, net of value added tax. It differs from the revenue recognized at the time of recognition. For traditional individual credit loan transactions, as the loan facilitation service fees are charged upfront upon the release of funds to borrowers, the gross billing amount equals the loan facilitation service revenue. For individual credit loans launched in the third quarter of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, as the service fees are charged each period, the gross billing amount equals the gross accumulative loan facilitation service revenue recognized over the estimated term of the credit loan. For recommendation services, the gross billing amount equals the recommendation service fees.

[3] "Gross billing ratio" is defined as the gross billing amount divided by loan volume facilitated, presented as a percentage. It is an operation metric we believe is a more accurate indicator of profitability.

[4] Refers to borrowers who recorded successful borrowing activity on our online marketplace and referred to other third-parties during the relevant period. We started to provide recommendation services by referring certain borrowers to financial partners since December 2018.

[5] Refers to individual investors who made loan investments on our online marketplace during the relevant period.

Through Hexindai's platform, the total loan volume facilitated was approximately US$3.1 billion (RMB20.7 billion) from the inception of its business in March 2014 through June 30, 2019.

Mr. Xiaobo An, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of Hexindai, commented: "The first quarter of fiscal year 2020 marked the beginning of a transition period for us as an uncertain regulatory environment continues to hang over the P2P industry. Facing a challenging market, we began strategically repositioning our business during the quarter by developing a loan assistance business alongside our P2P business. This will further diversify revenue streams and ensure growth of our overall business going forward, regardless of what regulatory environment finally emerges for the P2P industry. We already have the key capabilities needed to efficiently run this new business with our extensive experience in borrower acquisition, solid risk management capabilities, and strong operational capabilities. We are very pleased with the initial results from this new business. Loan volume funded by institutional partners during the quarter accounted for approximately 20% of total loans facilitated during the quarter."

"This loan assistance business will cater to the growing demand from our partner institutions for loans that are short-term and in small amounts, which closely matches the profile of the high-quality microfinancing loans we facilitate. We spent the past several months carefully customizing and fine-tuning our risk management system using the enormous amounts of data generated by our legacy P2P products to ensure it continues to be highly-effective at assessing borrowers for our microfinancing loan products. While the ramp-up period for our new loan assistance business was not quick enough to offset the decline of our P2P business, which continues to be negatively impacted by a challenging industry environment, net revenue has begun to gradually recover, increasing sequentially by 18.6%. I am pleased with the progress we've made during the quarter while we make the transition of our business and am fully confident that this will allow us to create value for our users and shareholders and position us to generate long-term sustainable growth."

First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2020 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenue

Net revenue during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$4.9 million, a decrease of 90.5% compared to US$51.7 million during the same quarter of fiscal year 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the significant decrease in the volume of credit loans facilitated through Hexindai's marketplace, which decreased from US$0.5 billion (RMB2.9 billion) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019 to US$28.2 million (RMB0.2 billion) in the same quarter of fiscal year 2020. The decrease in the volume of credit loans facilitated through the Company's marketplace was primarily due to (i) the reduction in the amount of investment available for credit loans resulting from tightened industry regulation causing the suspension or shut down of some peers, which negatively impacted investors' sentiment and confidence across the industry, and (ii) the decline in the number of borrowers due to the Company's application of stricter internal control, including credit background investigations with heightened diligence and cooperation with third-party credit reporting agencies to further develop the Company's credit check system. Since the Company derives its revenue mainly from charging service fees from borrowers after successful facilitation of loans, the decline in both the amount of investment and the number of borrowers resulted in the decrease in revenue in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Operating costs and expenses

Total operating expenses during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were US$12.6 million, a decrease of 18.9% from US$15.6 million in the same quarter of last fiscal year. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in sales and marketing expenses.

Service and development expenses

Service and development expenses during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were US$1.9 million, an increase of 42.3% from US$1.4 million during the same quarter of last fiscal year. The increase was mainly due to an increase in employee expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses

Sales and marketing expenses during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were US$7.5 million, a decrease of 35.5% from US$11.7 million during the same quarter of last fiscal year. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in advertising expenses.

General and administrative expenses

General and administrative expenses during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were US$2.3 million, remained stable when compared to the same period of last fiscal year.

Finance cost

Finance cost during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were US$0.6 million, compared to nil during the same period of last fiscal year. The increase was mainly due to the interests expenses for senior notes.

Share-based compensation

Share-based compensation during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$0.2 million, remained stable when compared to the same period of last fiscal year.

Net (loss) income

As a result of the foregoing, the net loss was US$7.2 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to net income of US$29.7 million in first quarter of fiscal year 2019.

Net (loss) income attributable to Hexindai Inc.'s shareholders and (loss) earnings per ordinary shares

Net loss attributable to the Company's shareholders was US$7.2 million during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to net income attributable to the Company's shareholders of US$29.7 million in the same period of fiscal year 2019. Accordingly, basic loss per ordinary shares in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$0.15, compared to basic EPS of US$0.62 in the same period of fiscal year 2019. Diluted loss per ordinary shares in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$0.15, compared to diluted EPS of US$0.56 in the same period of fiscal year 2019.

Adjusted net (loss) income attributable to Hexindai Inc.'s shareholders and adjusted (loss) earnings per ordinary shares

Adjusted net loss attributable to the Company's shareholders, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, was US$7.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to adjusted net income attributable to the Company's shareholders of US$29.9 million in the same period of fiscal year 2019. Accordingly, the adjusted basic loss per ordinary shares was US$0.14 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to the adjusted basic EPS of US$0.62 in the same period of fiscal year 2019. The adjusted diluted loss per ordinary shares was US$0.14 in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, compared to the adjusted diluted EPS of US$0.56 in the same period of fiscal year 2019.

Cash and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of US$25.9 million. Net cash used in operating activities for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$9.4 million, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of US$23.4 million in the same quarter of last fiscal year. The decrease in operating cash flow was mainly due to decreased net income during the three months ended June 30, 2019. Net cash used in investing activities for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$19.4 million, compared to US$2.5 million in the same quarter of last fiscal year. The increase in investing cash flow was due to the payment of long-term investment and increased investment in loan principal. Net cash used in financing activities for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 was US$2.5 million, compared to net cash provided by financing activities of US$0.5 million in the same quarter of last fiscal year. The decrease in financing activities was mainly due to ordinary shares repurchase.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We used adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted (loss) earnings per ordinary shares and adjusted EBIT, non-GAAP financial measures, in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. "Adjusted net (loss) income" is net (loss) income before share-based compensation expenses. "Adjusted EBIT" is earnings before interest, income taxes and share-based compensation. We believed that the adjusted net (loss) income, adjusted (loss) earnings per ordinary shares and adjusted EBIT provided useful information about our operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP measures were not defined under US GAAP and was not presented in accordance with US GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures had limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing our operating performance, cash flows or our liquidity, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net income(loss), cash flows provided by operating activities or other consolidated statements of operation and cash flow data prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

We mitigate these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable US GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance.

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

Exchange Rate Information

Our business was conducted in China, and our financial records were maintained in RMB, our functional currency. However, we used the U.S. dollar as our reporting currency; therefore, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars using the then-current exchange rates, for the convenience of the readers. The financial information was first prepared in RMB and then was translated into U.S. dollars at period-end exchange rates in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board as to assets and liabilities and average exchange rates as to revenue and expenses. Capital accounts were translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred. The effects of foreign currency translation adjustments were included as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income(loss) in shareholders' equity. We make no representation that any RMB or U.S. dollar amounts could have been, or could be, converted into U.S. dollars or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate, or at all. The PRC government imposes control over its foreign currency reserves in part through direct regulation of the conversion of RMB into foreign exchange and through restrictions on foreign trade.

Recent Developments

In July 2019, Hexindai announced it will further diversify its business by launching a new e-commerce installment financing service "Hexin Installments". Hexindai plans to cooperate with institutional funding partners to provide installment financing for consumers through this service. The Company will attract and acquire users leveraging its effective online acquisition channels. Hexindai's powerful risk management system and technological infrastructure will create a solid foundation for the new platform to grow.

In August 2019, Hexindai-backed Indonesian online lending platform, Musketeer Group Inc. ("Musketeer"), completed registration for its P2P lending platform with the Indonesian Financial Services Authority (OJK). Only a limited number of qualified online lenders in Indonesia have been able to register with the OJK.
