During this quarter, we focused our efforts on several key priorities, including first, ensuring the health and safety of our employees and the customers; second, accelerating our online strategy through forming a relationship with Baidu Youjia, Baidu's information Service app in the automobile vertical, depending our collaboration with Tmall Auto, and the completing the acquisition of Longye International; and third, managing our cost structure to maintain sufficient cash balance and liquidity.

Let's take a look now at the first quarter results of our business segments, while also providing additional detail on our strategic and operational priorities.
