Based on the preliminary assessment of the unaudited consolidated management accounts of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2022 and the information of the Company currently available to the Board, the Company is expected to turn from loss to profit for the year ended December 31, 2022, recording a profit of approximately RMB221 million to RMB228 million. The Company is expected to record a non-IFRS adjusted profit of approximately RMB286 million to RMB293 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, representing an increase of approximately 103% to 108% as compared to the same period last year.
Such increase is mainly attributable to a number of factors, including the revenue from smart analytics and operation services, which as a core business, amounted to approximately RMB1,022 million to RMB1,038 million, representing an increase of approximately 39% to 41% as compared to the same period of last year, as the business line continued to leverage its scale of operation to increase both revenue and profit. Specifically, the revenue from smart operation services increased by approximately 140% as compared to the same period of last year. Benefiting from the advantages of AI, this business line offers its self-developed smart AI-powered chatbot (Chatbot) and algorithm-driven smart marketing platform to help banks and other financial institutions complete jobs such as credit card users revitalization, wealth management marketing and users relationship management, effectively enhancing service accuracy and operational efficiency of financial institutions. Chatbot technology integrates natural language processing (NLP), automatic speech recognition (ASR), text-to-speech (TTS), voice activity detection (VAD) and other technologies, which can be applied to financial vertical scenarios to accurately recognize human language, provide millisecond-level voice interaction and feedback with extremely high accuracy for automatic speech recognition, and is capable of operating tens of millions of users and handling more than 100 million automatic interactions per day. This technology is combined with the Company’s years of experience in working with financial institutions and the human-machine collaboration, enabling quick adaptation to serve various financial institutions customers.
