(NYSE: YRD) ("Yirendai" or the "Company"), a leading fintech company in China, announced today that it has connected to the Internet Finance Industry Credit Information Sharing Platform ("the Platform") established by the National Internet Finance Association of China ("NIFA").

NIFA is a national self-regulatory organization in the field of internet finance and is initiated by the People's Bank of China in collaboration with relevant ministries and commissions including the China Banking Regulatory Commission, the China Securities Regulatory Commission and the China Insurance Regulatory Commission. The aim of NIFA is to perform self-regulation of the internet finance sector, to serve members and safeguard their legitimate rights and interests, to maintain fair competition of the internet finance sector and to promote its healthy and orderly development.
