 "Active Mobile Buyers" as of a specified date, refer to the number of (i) users that have placed at least one order on our platform, and (ii) users that have been referred by us to third-party e-commerce platforms, and placed at least one order on such platform.
Mr. Xiaobo An, founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Xiaobai Maimai, commented, "We are very excited to begin a new journey after we have disposed of our peer-to-peer ("P2P") business and transformed into a social e-commerce platform. We launched our social e-commerce platform in May 2020 and have continued to upgrade our platform to provide more 'value-for-money' products to users. In addition to the discounts, coupons and rebates offered by us, our users are also rewarded with small commissions for every purchase, share, or recommendation to their social circles. This social e-commerce model has been well received by users and continues to gain traction. We saw our user base grow rapidly in recent months and have continued to optimize our algorithm to identify and introduce more cost-efficient products to our platform, especially during the 11.11 global shopping festival, from November 1st to November 11th this year. During the global shopping festival, we generated an encouraging RMB220.9 million (approximately US$33.3 million) in transaction volume, which we believe is evidence of the reliability and high performance of our powerful algorithm and operating system."
"Going forward, we will continue to expand our cooperation with more domestic e-commerce platforms and online marketplaces to offer more high-quality and affordable products to our users. We are well positioned to develop new services in line with the growing demand in Chinese consumer trends and engage with more scalable targeting to improve our users' online shopping experience. In the meantime, we have kicked off an initiative to tap into the emerging group-buying communities and will also continue to explore other opportunities such as live streaming e-commerce. With a new direction leading the way, we are confident of our capabilities to execute our growth strategies and create long-term value for our shareholders."
First Half of Fiscal Year 2021 Unaudited Financial Results
Total net revenues were approximately US$1.4 million, representing a decrease of 73.8% from approximately US$5.2 million in the same period of fiscal year 2020. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in net revenues from our loan recommendation services and interest income from our micro-lending business.
- Revenue from loan facilitation, post-origination, and other services was nil, decreased from approximately US$3.2 million in the same period of last fiscal year as the Company had ceased to issue new loans since November 2019.
- Revenue from online marketplace services was approximately US$0.3 million, compared with nil in the same period of last fiscal year. Such revenues were generated from our social e-commerce platform, which was launched in May 2020.
- Interest income was approximately US$1.1 million, representing a decrease of 45.7% from US$1.9 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in loan receivables.
Operating costs and expenses were approximately US$17.9 million, representing an increase of 216.4% from approximately US$5.8 million in the same period of fiscal year 2020. The increase was mainly due to an increase in provision for loans receivable.
- Service and development expenses were approximately US$0.3 million, representing a decrease of 44.6% from approximately US$0.5 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in payroll cost.
- Sales and marketing expenses were approximately US$0.6 million, representing a decrease of 42.3% from approximately US$1.0 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in advertising expenses for our P2P business, as we had ceased issuing new loans since November 2019.
- General and administrative expenses were approximately US$3.0 million, representing an increase of 26.2% from approximately US$2.4 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The increase was mainly due to an increase in professional fees.
- Provision for uncollectable loans receivable was approximately US$12.9 million, compared with approximately US$0.2 million in the same period of last fiscal year.

- Share-based compensation was approximately US$0.06 million, representing a decrease of 81.7% from approximately US$0.3 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was due to a decrease in the number of stock options and restricted share units expensed in fiscal year 2021.

Exchange Rate Information
Our business is conducted in China, and our financial records are maintained in RMB, our functional currency. However, we used the U.S. dollar as our reporting currency; therefore, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars using the then-current exchange rates, for the convenience of the readers. The financial information was prepared in RMB and then translated into U.S. dollars at period-end exchange rates in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board as to assets and liabilities, and average exchange rates as to revenue and expenses. Capital accounts were translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred. The effects of foreign currency translation adjustments were included as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders' equity. We make no representation that any RMB or U.S. dollar amounts could have been, or could be, converted into U.S. dollars or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate, or at all. The PRC government imposes control over its foreign currency reserves in part through direct regulation of the conversion of RMB into foreign exchange and through restrictions on foreign trade.
On December 16, 2020, our wholly-owned subsidiary, Beijing Hexin Yongheng Technology Development Co., Ltd. ("Hexin Yongheng"), Kuaishangche Automobile Leasing Co., Ltd. ("Kuaishangche"), a company not directly associated with the Company but controlled by Mr An, our CEO and Chairman of the Board and the owner of Kuaishangche, Hexin E-Commerce Company Limited ("Hexin E-Commerce"), and individual shareholders of Hexin E-Commerce entered into an assignment and assumption agreement (the "Agreement"). Pursuant to the Agreement, Hexin Yongheng agreed to assign and transfer to Kuaishangche the control over Hexin E-Commerce, in exchange for cash consideration of RMB 5 million (approximately US$ 0.7 million) (the "Disposition"). As a result of the Disposition, Kuaishangche has become the primary beneficiary of and controls Hexin E-Commerce and has assumed all assets and liabilities of Hexin E-Commerce and subsidiaries owned or controlled by Hexin E-Commerce, excluding any rights, titles, interests or claims that Hexin E-Commerce may have in Wusu Hexin Yongheng Commercial and Trading Co., Ltd. ("Wusu Company"), which remains as our consolidated variable interest entity. We conducted our P2P business through our consolidated variable interest entity, Hexin E-Commerce, and had ceased to offer new loans for online investors' subscription since November 2019. As a result of the Disposition, we have ceased to conduct the P2P business and the assets and liabilities of Hexin E-Commerce and its subsidiaries (excluding Wusu Company) have been shown as "assets and liabilities held for sale" and their results of operations have been shown as "discontinued operations." On December 16, 2020, our shareholders approved the change of our name to Xiaobai Maimai Inc. to reflect our business transition.
We launched our social e-commerce platform in May 2020 as a new business line for business transition, and we will continue to develop and invest in our platform to take advantage of China's fast-growing e-commerce industry. Our social e-commerce platform offers high-quality and affordable products to consumers in China. We cooperate with major domestic e-commerce platforms and services marketplaces to select and source goods and services, and reward users with a small commission for every purchase, share or recommendation of a product made to friends. Since the launch of our social e-commerce platform, we have seen encouraging growth in a number of operating metrics, including transaction volume, monthly mobile active users and active mobile buyers. Although our e-commerce business is still in the early stages of development, where further investment is required, we are proactively executing our strategies to tap into the emerging group-buying communities and exploring other opportunities in China's fast-growing e-commerce industry, such as live streaming e-commerce.
