As I have introduced on many occasions, as a key component to build China's inclusive financial system, CNF shoulders important responsibilities to help MSEs to meet their most urgent financing needs, which requires us to forge ahead to provide better services and solutions.

Interest and financing service fees on loans increased by 6.6% to RMB444.7 million (US$69.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB417.1 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the balance of average daily outstanding loan principal.

Interest on deposits with banks increased by 2.5% to RMB4.1 million (US$0.6 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB4.0 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to larger average daily balance of time deposits in the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period of 2020.

Total interest and fees expenses increased by 28.8% to RMB205.2 million (US$32.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB159.3 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the principals of other borrowings as well as the funding cost from trust companies.

Collaboration cost for sales partners, representing sales incentives paid to sales partners, increased to RMB119.5 million (US$18.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB104.4 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in average daily outstanding loan principal under the collaboration model as compared to the same period of 2020.

Net interest and fees income after collaboration cost was RMB124.1 million (US$19.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 21.2% from RMB157.4 million in the same period of 2020 due to higher interest and fees expenses.

Provision for credit losses recorded a reversal of RMB308.2 million (US$48.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to a reversal of RMB30.9 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) higher loss given default (LGD) under the current expected credit loss (CECL) model which takes into account the Company's historical data of actual loss in the past few years, and (b) the fact that the Company transferred loans under the traditional facilitation model to third parties in bulk during the fourth quarter of 2021 and the allowance of such loans was reversed.

Net gains/(losses) on sales of loans decreased to a net loss of RMB468.6million (US$73.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from a net gain of RMB43.7 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to the fact that the Company transferred loans under the traditional facilitation model to third parties in bulk during the fourth quarter of 2021. Such loans were all facilitated prior to 2019, and the majority of them were long past due and therefore sold at a large discount.

Other gains, net was RMB16.2 million (US$2.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, compared to RMB7.8 million for the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to (a) the increase of Credit Risk Mitigation Position forfeited by the sales partners, and (b) the credit loss associated with an investment in debt securities.

Employee compensation and benefits increased by 19.5% to RMB62.4 million (US$9.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB52.2 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to a one-time compensation payment to our former CFO as he stepped down from his position in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Share-based compensation expenses decreased by 69.7% to RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB15.5 million in the same period of 2020. According to the Company's share option plan adopted on December 31, 2019, approximately 50%, 30% and 20% of the option granted will be vested on December 31, 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively. Related compensation cost of the option grants will be recognized over the requisite period.

Taxes and surcharges decreased by 20.5% to RMB10.1 million (US$1.6 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021, as compared to RMB12.7 million for the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to a decrease in the non-deductible value added tax ("VAT"). The decrease in VAT was attributable to the characterization of certain amounts as "service fees charged to trust plans" which are a non-deductible item. According to PRC tax regulations, "service fees charged to trust plans" incur a 6% VAT on the subsidiary level, but are not recorded as an input VAT on a consolidated trust plan level. "Service fees charged to trust plans" were significantly decreased in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020 due to maturity of some trust plans.

Operating lease cost decreased by 30.4% to RMB3.2 million (US$0.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB4.6 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the continued development of the collaboration model that allowed the Company to further reduce the office leasing costs which was used to rent offices to accommodate sales staff.

Other expenses decreased by 14.0% to RMB25.9 million (US$4.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB30.1 million for the same period of 2020, such expenses were mainly attributable to decreases in (a) the IT R&D and outsourcing service fees related to an employee service technology platform which was delivered and paid in full; (b) service fees paid to third-party consultants, and (c) costs related to the promotion of the collaboration model as it has been widely accepted. 

Income tax (expense)/benefit recorded an income tax benefit of RMB15.4 million (US$2.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to an income tax expense of RMB24.2 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the fact that the Company recorded a loss before income tax for the fourth quarter of 2021, such loss was due to the loss associated with the sale of loans under the traditional facilitation model in bulk during the fourth quarter of 2021. Such loans were all facilitated prior to 2019, and the majority of them were long past due and therefore sold at a large discount.

Effective tax rate was 12.8% for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to 18.7% in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) the non-deductible share-based compensation expenses which decreased to RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 from RMB15.5 million in the same period of 2020; (b) the fourth quarter of 2021 had losses before income tax of RMB120.3 million (US$18.9 million) as compared to income before income tax of RMB129.5 million in the same period of 2020, leading to a negative tax effect of the non-deductible share-based compensation expenses in the current period; and (c) our Hongkong subsidiary incurred losses before income tax of RMB11.6 million(US$1.8 million) expected not to be deductible in the future, thus no deferred tax assets were recognized.

Net income/(losses) was a net loss of RMB104.9 million (US$16.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to a net income of RMB105.3 million for the same period of 2020.

Interest and financing service fees on loans decreased by 3.2% to RMB1,770.4 million (US$277.8 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB1,828.7 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the lowered interest rate on loans facilitated in an effort to comply with rules and regulations issued by relevant PRC regulatory authorities, including the Decisions of the Supreme People's Court to Amend the Provisions on Several Issues concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Private Lending Cases issued in August 2020.

Interest on deposits with banks decreased by 25.5% to RMB12.0 million (US$1.9 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB16.1 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the smaller daily average amount of time deposits in the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to 2020.

Interest and fees expenses increased by 6.1% to RMB775.6 million (US$121.7 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB731.3 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the principals of other borrowings as well as the funding cost from trust companies.

Provision for credit losses recorded a reversal of RMB278.2 million (US$43.7 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB277.6 million for the same period of 2020, mainly due to a combined effect of (a) the fact that the Company transferred loans under the traditional facilitation model to third parties in bulk during the fourth quarter of 2021 and the allowance of such loans was reversed, (b) the higher loss given default (LGD) under the current expected credit loss (CECL) model which takes into account the Company's historical data of actual loss in the past few years, partially offset by (c) the lower probability of default (PD) under the current expected credit loss (CECL) model which takes into account the outlook of a more positive economy growth of China in the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to that of the same period of 2020 under the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.  

Net gains/(losses) on sales of loans decreased to a net loss of RMB450.7 million (US$70.7 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 from a net gain of RMB149.6 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to the fact that the Company transferred loans under the traditional facilitation model to third parties in bulk during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Other gains, net was RMB50.1 million (US$7.9 million) for the fiscal year of 2021, compared with RMB19.8 million in the same period of 2020. When a loan defaults and the sales partner chooses to repurchase such loan in installments, the Company would charge certain percentage of the loan as the fund possession fee. The increase in other gains for the fiscal year of 2021 was primarily due to the fact that there was a larger number of cases where delinquent loans were repurchased by the sales partner in installments, which led to an increase in fund possession fee received by the Company.

Total operating expenses decreased by 14.9% to RMB381.0 million (US$59.8 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB447.7 million for the same period of 2020.

Employee compensation and benefits increased by 10.9% to RMB211.2 million (US$33.1 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB190.4 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to a one-time compensation payment to our Former CFO as he stepped down from his position in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Taxes and surcharges decreased by 27.9 % to RMB35.7 million (US$5.6 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 as compared to RMB49.5 million for the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to a decrease in the non-deductible value added tax ("VAT").

According to PRC tax regulations, "service fees charged to trust plans" incur a 6% VAT on the subsidiary level, but are not recorded as an input VAT on a consolidated trust plan level.

Effective tax rate increased to 30.8% for the fiscal year of 2021 from 29.4% in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) the non-deductible share-based compensation expenses which decreased to RMB18.8 million (US$3.0 million) for the fiscal year of 2021 from RMB62.1 million in the same period of 2020; (b) the proceeds of RMB39.9 million (US$6.3 million) tax-free dividends from equity investment funds in 2021; and (c) the redeemable loss of RMB30.1million (US$4.7 million).
