|•||Number of active clients was 621,137 as of September 30, 2022, representing an increase of 45.2% from 427,873 as of September 30, 2021. The increase was driven by our expanding insurance brokerage business and Yiren Select initiatives.|
|•||Total client assets reached RMB22,795.8 million (US$3,204.6 million) as of September 30, 2022, representing an increase of 30.9% from RMB17,415.3 million as of September 30, 2021.|
|•||Sales volume of investment products amounted to RMB4,476.4 million (US$629.3 million) in the third quarter of 2022, representing a decrease of 11.0% from RMB5,030.2 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was due to the changes of product mix.|
|•||Total loans facilitated in the third quarter of 2022 reached RMB6.3 billion (US$0.9 billion), representing a decrease of 7.9% from RMB6.8 billion in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to the strategic optimization of our product structure.|
|•||Cumulative number of borrowers served reached 6,960,095 as of September 30, 2022, representing an increase of 19.2% compared to 5,840,424 as of September 30, 2021.|
|•||Number of borrowers served in the third quarter of 2022 was 737,320 representing an increase of 34.4% from 548,495 in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was due to our improved services, enriched membership benefits as well as enhanced customer engagement.|
|•||Outstanding balance of performing loans facilitated reached RMB10,630.4 million (US$1,494.4 million) as of September 30, 2022, representing a decrease of 22.9% from RMB13,793.9 million as of September 30, 2021. The decrease was due to the scale back of our offline business as part of our business optimization process coupled with impacts from the pandemic resurgence.|
|•||Total gross merchandise volume generated through our e-commerce platform and "Yiren Select" channel reached RMB249.6 million (US$35.1 million) in the third quarter of 2022.|
"We are pleased to deliver a resilient quarter with solid business recovery and continued improvement in profitability post our product restructuring and pandemic resurgence in the first half this year," said Mr. Ning Tang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yiren Digital.
"Regarding our holistic wealth business, our insurance brokerage business continues its strong momentum this quarter, becoming an essential revenue pillar. In the third quarter of 2022, our total premiums reached RMB1 billion, representing a 36% increase year on year, surpassing the industry average growth rate by over six times. Revenue generated from Hexiang Insurance brokerage services reached RMB189 million, accounting for more than 22% of total revenue in the third quarter this year, and we expect to see an accelerated double-digit growth in the fourth quarter, driven by our outstanding capabilities in product customization and innovation."
"On our credit-tech business, new loan portfolios post the product optimization enjoy higher operating efficiencies and lower borrowing costs, translating into healthier unit economics that allows us to better scale. In the third quarter this year, our total loan volume reached RMB6.3 billion, accounting for 66% of total loans facilitated in the first half this year and reaching close to pre-restructuring level. Given the current strong demand for our loan-facilitation services, especially for our small revolving loans, we project a further two-digit growth quarter over quarter in total loan volume in the fourth quarter this year."
"We delivered a solid profit of RMB270 million this quarter, reflecting a net income margin of 32.2%, up 6.2 percentage points from the same period of last year as we enjoy better unit economics post the product-restructuring and continue to improve our cost control," said Ms. Na Mei, Chief Financial Officer of Yiren Digital. "Turning to our balance sheet, we remained at a strong cash position with usable cash reaching RMB4.7 billion as of September 30, 2022, reserving sufficient buffer for the further execution of our share repurchase plan announced earlier this year as well as providing enough fuels for any new business opportunities going ahead."
Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Total net revenue in the third quarter of 2022 was RMB840.7 million (US$118.2 million), representing a decrease of 31.8% from RMB1,232.0 million in the third quarter of 2021. Particularly, in the third quarter of 2022, revenue from credit-tech business was RMB493.4 million (US$69.4 million), representing a decrease of 44.8% from RMB894.4 million in the same period of 2021.

Revenue from holistic wealth business was RMB294.3 million ($41.4 million), representing a decrease of 12.8% from RMB337.6 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was due to the declined sales volume of investment products.
Sales and marketing expenses in the third quarter of 2022 were RMB136.4 million (US$19.2 million), compared to RMB407.2 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the optimization of cost structure for our offline business.

This is the Company's current and preliminary view, which is subject to changes and uncertainties.
The board of directors of the Company (the "Board") has appointed Mr. Hiu Fung Vincent Pang as (i) a director of the Company, (ii) the chairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, (iii) a member of the Audit Committee, and (iv) a member of the Compensation Committee, to succeed Ms. Chaomei Chen, who has resigned from the foregoing positions due to personal reasons. The director change became effective on November 22, 2022.
Mr. Hiu Fung Vincent Pang has over 30 years of experience in auditing, consulting and taxation. He served as a Partner at KPMG Consulting (China) Co., Ltd. for over 15 years until his retirement in December 2021, during which he served as the Partner in Charge of Northern China Tax department of KPMG Consulting (China) Co., Ltd. from 2017 to 2020. Previously, Mr. Pang held various positions at Deloitte Beijing, Beijing Zhonggongxin Certified Public Accountants Co., Ltd., PricewaterhouseCoopers Beijing, KPMG Vancouver and Dyke & Howard Vancouver from 1991 to 2006. Mr. Pang received a degree of Bachelor of Commerce from McGill University in Canada in 1991. Mr. Pang is also a Canadian Chartered Accountant.
The Board has determined that Mr. Hiu Fung Vincent Pang satisfies the "independence" requirements of Section 303A of the Corporate Governance Rules of the NYSE and Rule 10A-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
"We are grateful for all the contributions that Ms. Chaomei Chen has made to the Company during the past six years and sincerely wish her all the best in her future endeavors," said Mr. Ning Tang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yiren Digital. "We would like to welcome Mr. Pang to Yiren Digital. Mr. Pang's extensive background in accounting, consulting and taxation will provide valuable insight and guidance to the Company," continued Mr. Ning Tang.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses several non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. We believe these non-GAAP measures 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.
