Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 41% to RMB394 million during the quarter, primarily due to a temporary slowdown in user acquisition. General and administrative expenses decreased by 19% to RMB199.5 million during the quarter, primarily due to a decrease in share-based compensation expenses, which were partially offset by increase in salaries, benefits and professional fees.

Operating income stood at RMB256.6 million during the quarter. Net income was RMB171.6 million during the quarter. Adjusted net income was RMB205.8 million. On the balance sheet side, our cash position remains strong. As at June 30, 2019, our cash and cash equivalent and term deposits of RMB5.9 billion.
