Regulatory Developments

2020 is a year of comprehensive transformation for the marketplace lending industry. According to a series of regulatory documents and guidance issued by the PRC government at the end of 2019, including the Guidance on the Transformation of Online Lending Information Intermediary Institutions into Pilot Micro Credit Companies, the peer-to-peer industry is faced with full exiting and transformation requirement.

Due to the regulatory and industry development and in order to promote a smooth exit of peer-to-peer investments, ensure the business and operational continuity of the Company and protect the rights and interests of investors, the government issued an official notification with respect to the Company's peer-to-peer operation. Since July 2020, Weidai has been cooperating closely with local government authority in its business operation. Under the supervision of the government authority, the Company's organizational structure is stable and the daily operation of the Company is in order. Particularly, all loan collection related work is carried out as usual and interests and principals are repaid by borrowers as scheduled. Our business operation is subject to further instruction from the government authority.

Weidai will continue to cooperate with government authorities and actively carry out loan collection related work. Weidai would like to convey its sincere gratitude to investors for their trust and support in the past.

In addition, the recently announced Guideline on Laws Applicable to Trials of Private Lending Cases by the Supreme People's Court of China set a new legally protected interest rate cap for private lending. This new guideline indicates that the overall interest rate in the PRC will gradually trend lower in the intermediate term. The Company will make timely adjustment to its operations to comply with the evolving regulatory requirements. Furthermore, the Interim Measures for the Administration of Internet Loans issued by Commercial Banks, which became effective on July 17, 2020, provide clear guidelines for the cooperation between financial institutions and marketplace lending platforms, and offer policy support to the long-term, healthy and steady development of the marketplace lending industry. Going forward, the Company plans to focus on financial institutions as the primary funding source and market its financial service solutions to banks and other credit intermediaries.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted net income/(loss), a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. The Company believes that adjusted net income/(loss) helps identify underlying trends in its business by excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses/(benefits). The Company believes that adjusted net income/(loss) provides useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allows for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted net income/(loss) is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, cash flows or liquidity, investors should not consider it 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 U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

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