Online consumer finance company 360 DigiTech, Inc. (NASDAQ: QFIN) on Monday reported double-digit earnings and revenue growth for the third quarter of 2021. Shares of the company closed the day’s session up 1%.
Revenues increased 24.6% annually to RMB4.61 billion ($715.9 million) in the three months ended September 2021. A slowdown in the Credit Driven Services business was more than offset by a surge in Platform Services revenue.

“The consistent track record further demonstrated management’s solid overall execution and the resilience of the Company’s business model. During the quarter, financial institutions originated RMB97.6 billion loans through our platform, up approximately 48% year-on-year. Approximately 57% of the loans was facilitated under the capital-light model and other technology solutions, marking consistent progress toward our long-term technology-driven strategic transition and upgrading,” said Haisheng Wu, chief executive officer of 360 DigiTech.
