BEIJING, March 17, 2019 — Jianpu Technology Inc. (“Jianpu,” or the “Company”) (NYSE: JT), a leading independent open platform for discovery and recommendation of financial products in China, responds to CCTV’s report concerning certain financial products offered by third-party financial services providers on the Company’s platform (the “CCTV Report”). The CCTV Report was aired during its 2019 “315 Night,” a show concerning consumer protection which airs annually on March 15.
Jianpu operates the “Rong360” platform, an independent open platform for discovery and recommendation of financial products. The Company currently cooperates with over 2,000 financial service providers and offers over 200,000 financial products from these financial service providers on the platform. The Company does not offer its own products, extend credit or assume any credit risk.
Although the Company implements stringent standards to screen financial services providers before listing their products on its platform, we cannot rule out the possibility that the quality of the financial products and the services provided by financial services providers are not in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations at all times.
In response to the CCTV Report, Jianpu has promptly organized internal resources to thoroughly review its business practice, including the voluntarily suspension of further downloads of its mobile apps on major mobile app stores in order to identify any inappropriate conduct that could adversely affect consumer rights, and to take remediation measures with respect to any inappropriate activity that may be found on the Company’s platform.
The Company hopes to be open and transparent of its findings and remediation measures. Going forward, the Company is committed to continuing to remain as an independent open platform and providing reliable services to users and financial service providers impartially.
