If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

Subsequent to the issuance of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2018, the Company revisited its consolidated financial statements and identified certain material misstatements. As a result, the Company has restated its previously issued consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2018.

The following misstatements in the Company’s annual financial statements were identified and corrected as part of the restatement:

(a) Gross vs net recognition on revenue

In the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2018, the Company erroneously recorded revenue earned from certain technical service fee on a net basis, rather than on a gross basis as would have been correct since the Company was acting as principal. The correction of this error resulted in an increase in both revenues and cost of revenues of RMB194 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 and RMB530 million for the year ended December 31, 2018.

(b) Reclassification of prior year presentation

Certain fiscal year 2018 amounts have been reclassified for consistency with the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the reported results of operations. In fiscal year 2019, the Company concluded that: (a) it was appropriate to classify financial guarantee assets based on their short term and long term nature from prepayments and other current assets; (b) it was appropriate to present the release from guarantee obligation under the line item for technical service fee revenues; and (c) it was appropriate to present accrued interest receivable as part of financing receivable, and present accrued interest payable as part of funding debts. These changes in classification do not materially affect previously reported consolidated statements of cash flows and had no effect on the previously reported consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income for year 2018.

The Company announced a net loss of RMB906.5 million in the full year of 2019 due to RMB890.7 million of provision for credit loss in amounts due from a related party, Jimu Group, and RMB200 million of impairment in prepayment for long-term investment.
