Change of Business Operations

 

This current report on Form 6-k was submitted in connection with the change of business operations of 9F Inc. (the “Company”).

 

The Company ceased publishing information relating to new offering of investment opportunities in fixed income products for investors on its online lending information intermediary platform, Jiufu Puhui. The Company has entered into collaboration arrangements with certain licensed asset management companies, pursuant to which the investors’ rights to all loans will be transferred to those companies, with relevant repayment of the principals and investment income, as applicable, in relation to the fixed income products expected to be made by such asset management companies to the investors within 36 months in ways chosen by investors subject to terms and on the conditions set forth in the platform notice to the investors (the “Repayment Terms”). After the change of business operations, the outstanding balance of loans facilitated through Jiufu Puhui shall become nil, and licensed asset management companies will provide existing investors with services in relation to the return of their remaining investment in loans. The Company has informed all investors on its platform of these changes in its business and the Repayment Terms.

 

Jiufu Puhui will be dedicated to providing information technical support to institutional partners, and assist smooth transition process for all of its existing investors led by licensed asset management companies. After the change of business operations, the Company ceases offering online lending information intermediary services for peer-to-peer lending and borrowing activities and completes the transformation of such business to fintech services, with the plan to provide continuous technical support to licensed asset management companies. In its future operations, the Company will be focusing on fintech services, online wealth management technology services facing med- and high-net-worth clients, online stock investment services in Hong Kong and consumer financing technology services in Southeast Asian countries, and will be dedicated to its full transformation into an internet technology company.
