The revenue growth was mainly attributable to the increase in interest income from the Group's entrusted loan service and micro loan service, as well as the new income streams from providing P2P loan consultancy service and online third party payment service. In view of the rapid growth of micro loans scale, the Group adopted a more prudent accounting policy by providing allowance for loan receivables for its micro loads in an amount of approximately RMB9.5 million. The increased in financing costs from bank loans also made temporary impact on the profit, leading to a decline in the profit attributable to owners of the Company to RMB44.2 million (2013 1H: 61.4 million).

The commencement of the internet housing loans and internet automobile loans has allowed the Group to form an innovative and unique business model in the P2P internet loan industry, which is poised to bring about great synergies as the platform becomes more scalable."

Continuing its efforts in transforming the business focus to the internet financing business, the Group has seized the opportunities in acquiring relevant businesses and forming strategic alliance during 2014 1H. In March 2014, the Group has forayed into the internet housing loans market under the brand name "First House Loan". Furthermore, the Group entered into an agreement for acquiring an 80% equity interest in a PRC company which is principally engaged in the development and operation of automobile financing products for the provision of internet car loans under the brand name of "First Automobile Loan".

On 11 August 2014, the Group announced the acquisition of Beijing Phoenix through the Structured Contracts at a consideration of RMB50,000,000 to be satisfied in cash. Beijing Phoenix is primarily engaged in online P2P lending, thus the acquisition will further diversify the Group's internet finance sector.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
