Business Review

Actively and Promptly Responded to Macro Challenges and Steadily Progressed Business Development

In the first half of 2022, the Group actively and promptly responded to the complex changes in macro environment and remained focused on the development of marketing technology platforms as well as commercial services that empower client growth. Therefore, the overall business of the Group demonstrated a positive trend of recovery in the first quarter of this year after the second half of 2021. During the second quarter of this year, the resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic in Shanghai caused a significant impact on our headquarter and key commercial operating companies located in Shanghai, which pressured several business aspects including client acquisition, operating efficiency and cost efficiency for a quarter. However, despite market uncertainties, the Group still achieved year-on-year and sequential growth in the half-year revenue in the first half of 2022 and maintained business profitability. This is mainly attributable to the long-term resilience of our excellent clientele, the commercial applications of our continuously developing technology and accumulated data, and the incremental improvement of the commercial service system.

During 1H22, our gross billing increased by 2.71% year-on-year and 17.19% sequentially to RMB3.601 billion.
