What we have achieved in the most challenging business environment in modern history demonstrates the adaptability and the resilience of OneSmart's business model and employees. Our years' investments and technology development in online space enables us to respond promptly to the unprecedented COVID-19 situation.

Our online platform has been serving over 160,000 student enrollments as of February 2020, a massive increase from just a few thousands in late 2019. The speed and volume proves the Company's strong ability to strategically manage and operate a premium online business and demonstrates its determination to build OneSmart Online into the largest premium online education company in China. While we expect our financial performance to be temporarily impacted for a couple of quarters by the pandemic, we believe it will bounce back fairly quickly as the schools reopen and the demand for premium education services prevails.

Going forward, we will benefit from OneSmart Online to penetrate the mid to high end K-12 education market in China, in both scalability and profitability, as it's helping us expand in a much larger addressable market. We see enormous growth potential ahead and will take advantage of opportunities that arise as the industry consolidates after the pandemic.
