Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, we will now begin the question-and-answer session. (Operator Instructions) Your first question comes from the line of John Cai from Morgan Stanley. Please ask your question.
Hi. good morning. Thank you. Thanks managements for taking my questions. So I have a few questions on the combined business. So I haven't looked into the details for now, but since the EPA's integrated, based on my comparison with the restated number for 2018 and previous reported numbers. So just wonder if the management can share the more details on the valuation for the acquired business.
Has that changed because it seems the shift between mix and -- the mix between the cash payment and the share payment has some change there, but I'm not sure if the total consideration has changed. So that's the first part. And the second part is I asked in the first quarter the revenue has declined and also the OpEx has declined.

The leading strong companies will have the opportunity to become fully regulated and that process will likely begin in Q4.
Okay, maybe next Wei can talk a little bit about the business trend for the rest of the year (inaudible).
So John, I'll briefly translate that into English. So normally and each year February is our lowest season due to the Chinese New Year holiday. And going into the second half of the year and going to December that should be the peak for our loan volume. And for this year in considerations of regulations and depending on when the P2P online registration will start, we expect this latter half of the year to resume our monthly loan growth of about 30%.
Yes. So, I think what Wei means that first half was flattish due to our risk control mode. But both from seasonality perspective, as also business readiness perspective we're seeing a ramp up trend in the second half of the year. And then regarding the consideration, if we take the number of shares and still assume the same
