Fourth quarter 2017 Financial Results
Total amount of loans facilitated in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB 13,438.5 million (US$2,065.5 million), increased by 95% from RMB 6,883.4 million in the same period last year, reflecting strong demand for our products and services, especially from customers acquired from online channels. As of December 31, 2017, the Yirendai platform had facilitated approximately RMB 73.9 billion (US$11.4 billion) in loan principal since its inception.
Total net revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB 1,824.8 million (US$280.5 million), increased by 70% from RMB 1,071.1 million in the same period last year. The increase of total net revenue was mainly attributable to the growth of loan origination volume, increased service fees billed to investors and increased monthly fees billed to borrowers as our remaining loan balance continued to expand.
Total fees billed (non-GAAP) in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 2,944.0 million (US$452.5 million), increased by 81% from RMB 1,630.4 million in the same period last year. Upfront fees billed to borrowers in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 2,376.9 million (US$365.3 million), increased by 62% from RMB 1,468.3 million in the same period last year, primarily driven by the growth of loan origination volume. Monthly fees billed to borrowers in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 384.3 million (US$59.1 million), increased by 193% from RMB 131.3 million in the same period last year. The significant year-over-year increase in monthly fees billed to borrowers was primarily attributable to the increase in loans generated from online channels, which features a fee collection schedule with monthly payments in addition to the upfront portion. Service fees billed to investors in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 339.8 million (US$52.2 million), increased by 150% from RMB 135.7 million in the same period last year. The significant year-over-year increase in service fees billed to investors was primarily attributable to the increase in the total asset under management.
Sales and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 989.8 million (US$152.1 million), increased by 17% from RMB 844.2 million in the previous quarter and compared to RMB 538.0 million in the same period last year. Sales and marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 accounted for 7.4% of amount of loans facilitated, increased from 6.9% in the previous quarter and decreased from 7.8% in the same period last year. Sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of amount of loans facilitated increased from the previous quarter due to the increase of investor acquisition spending as we build up our online wealth management service and our slightly decreased approval rate in anticipation of potential volatility of borrower credit performance caused by the tightening of industry regulations.
Origination and servicing costs in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 146.9 million (US$22.6 million), compared to RMB 119.0 million in the previous quarter and RMB 56.7 million in the same period last year. Origination and servicing costs in the fourth quarter of 2017 accounted for 1.1% of amount of loans facilitated, increased from 1.0% in the previous quarter and 0.8% in the same period last year mainly due to increased collection efforts this quarter.
General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 were RMB 155.1 million (US$23.8 million), compared to RMB 172.6 million in the previous quarter and RMB 79.7 million in the same period last year. General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 accounted for 8.5% of total net revenue, compared to 11.4 % in the previous quarter and 7.4% in the same period last year. General and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 include an expense of RMB 61.0 million (US$9.4 million) related to the quality assurance program and a contra-expense of RMB 17.9 million (US$2.8 million) related to an organized fraud incident in the third quarter of 2016.
In the third quarter of 2016, the Company recognized an expense of RMB 81.3 million (US$12.5 million) related to an organized fraud incident concerning one type of our FastTrack loan products.

This makes it eligible for an exemption of enterprise income tax for 2015 and 2016 and a favorable enterprise income tax rate of 12.5% for 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Net income in the fourth quarter of 2017 was RMB 448.8 million (US$69.0 million), increased by 48% from RMB 303.0 million in the previous quarter and increased by 18% from RMB 379.8 million for the same period last year.

As of December 31, 2017, balance of available-for-sale investments was RMB 969.8 million (US$149.0 million), compared to RMB 996.7 million as of September 30, 2017.
Quality Assurance Program and Guarantee. In anticipation of potential volatility of borrower credit performance caused by the recent tightening of industry regulations, in the fourth quarter of 2017, Yirendai accrued liabilities from quality assurance program and guarantee of RMB 1,047.8 million (US$161.0 million), which is equal to approximately 8.5% of the loans facilitated through its marketplace covered by the quality assurance program during the period. In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company released liabilities of RMB 689.7 million (US$ 106.0 million) to pay out the outstanding principal and accrued interest of default loans. During the quarter, the Company also reversed a contingent liability of RMB 17.9 million (US$2.8 million) in relation to the organized fraud incident in July 2016 during the quarter after evaluating future payouts. In addition, in the fourth quarter of 2017, after reviewing the sufficiency of the liability as of December 31, 2017, the Company recognized an additional contingent liability of RMB 61.0 million (US$9.4 million) according to historical loans' performance. As of December 31, 2017, liabilities from quality assurance program and guarantee were RMB 2,793.9 million (US$429.4 million).
Delinquency rates. As of December 31, 2017, the delinquency rates for loans that are past due for 15-29 days, 30-59 days and 60-89 days were 0.8%, 0.9% and 0.7%, compared to 0.5%, 0.7% and 0.6%, as of September 30, 2017. The delinquency rates for loans that are past due for 15-29 days has increased as compared to prior quarter due to a short-term volatility of borrower credit performance since new regulations were issued in December 2017.
Cumulative M3+ net charge-off rates. As of December 31, 2017, the cumulative M3+ net charge-off rate for loans originated in 2015 was 9.3%, compared to 8.8% as of September 30, 2017. As of December 31, 2017, the cumulative M3+ net charge-off rate for loans originated in 2016 was 5.9%, compared to 4.6% as of September 30, 2017. As the 2015 and 2016 vintage loans continue to mature, the charge off level is broadly consistent with our risk performance expectation.
Dividend
The board of directors has approved a dividend of RMB 0.9298 (US$0.14) per ordinary share of the Company (or RMB 1.8596 (US$0.28) per American depositary share of the Company) for the second half of 2017, which is expected to be paid on May 15, 2018 to holders of the Company's ordinary shares of record as of the close of business on April 30, 2018.
Under the Company's semi-annual dividend policy announced onAugust 1, 2017, semi-annual dividends will be set at an amount equivalent to approximately 15% of the Company's anticipated net income after tax in each half year commencing from the second half of 2017. The determination to declare and pay such semi-annual dividend and the amount of dividend in any particular half year will be made at the discretion of the Board and will be based upon the Company's operations and earnings, cash flow, financial condition and other relevant factors that the Board may deem appropriate.

Accounting Policy Change

As a result of adopting ASC 606, we expect to record a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings. Management has substantially completed the assessment on revenue recognition for the business under ASC 606 and is in the process of finalizing the conclusion.
Business Outlook
Based on the information available as of the date of this press release, Yirendai provides the following outlook, which reflects the Company's current and preliminary view and is subject to change. The following outlook does not take into consideration the impact of stock-based compensation expenses and is based upon the new revenue recognition policy under US GAAP, ASC 606.
First Quarter 2018
Total loans facilitated will be in the range of RMB 11,000 million to RMB 11,200 million.
Total net revenue will be in the range of RMB 1,530 million to RMB 1,570 million.
Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) will be in the range of RMB 430 million to RMB 450 million.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses several non-GAAP financial measures, such as fees billed, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance.We believe that fees billed and adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information about our core 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 our financial and operational decision-making. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. Other companies, including peer companies in the industry, may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure. The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance. See "Operating Highlights and Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures" at the end of this press release.
