Thank you, Mr. Feng and hello everyone, I will begin with some key financial highlights for the fourth fiscal corner. As Mr. Feng mentioned, we continued our rapid growth momentum in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 with GMV increasing by 81.3% from a year ago period.
Meanwhile, we achieved robust topline growth in the quarter with net revenue increasing by 20.7% and in particular, revenues from the services through the platform model increasing by 315.7% from the year ago period. Further, we narrowed our net loss attributable to Ruhnn with a significant decrease of 53.3% from the year ago period.
Our close ties with our shareholder Alibaba, vast resources of total stocks, strong supply chain management capabilities, rapid growth of our KOL fed base advanced technology to enhance e-commerce marketing efficiency and a diversified monetization channels were the key drivers for our strong topline growth.
Now, let's move on to detailed quarterly financial performance. As discussed, GMV increased by 81.3% year-over-year to RMB648.3 million. The increase, were primarily due to the increase of GMV in the platform model. Net revenues increased by 20.7% year-over-year to RMB237.3 million, primarily attributable to the increase of revenues from services through the platform models.
Revenues from product sales through the full-service model, increased by 1.4% year-over-year to RMB186.9 million. The increase was primarily attributable to the sales growth of the stores opened in the name of the Company’s top-tier KOLs and it was partially offset by the transformation of the business model of some online stores opened in the name of the Company’s emerging and established KOLs from the full-service model to platform model.
As a result of such transformation, the number of the Company’s online stores decreased to 56 as of March 31, 2019 from 86 as of March 31, 2018 and the number of the Company’s KOLs serving the full-service model decreased to 14 as of March 31, 2019 from 33 as of March 31, 2018.

Thanks to the rapid growth of GMV.

Revenues from the services through the platform model increased by 315.7% year-over-year to RMB50.3 million, the increase was primarily attributable to an increase in a number of KOLs under the platform model and an increase in a number of the brands with which we cooperate in our advertising and marketing business.

Gross profit increased by 30.5% year-over-year to RMB55.7 million, as we continue to grow the business. Gross margin increased to 23.5% compared with 21.7% for the same quarter of last fiscal year. The increase was primarily due to the increased proportion of the company's net revenue attributable to the services under the platform model, which exhibit higher gross margins than product sales, and an increase in the gross margin of the company’s services under the platform model due to KOL service fees as a percentage of the services revenues being lowered. The increase was partially offset by a decrease in the gross margin of the company’s product sales under the full-service model due to discounted sale of certain apparel and cosmetic products.
Total operating expenses decreased by 11.2% year-over-year to RMB90.7 million. Fulfillment expenses decreased by 2.9% year-over-year to RMB27.8 million.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 60.3% year-over-year to RMB15.6 million. The decrease was primarily because there was a provision made against advances paid to a certain supplier of RMB11.6 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Now, let's turn to some financial updates for full fiscal year 2019. GMV increased by 39.9% year-over-year to RMB2.9 billion. The increase was primarily attributable to reduce strong increase in the GMV in the platform model. Net revenues increased by 15.4% year-over-year to RMB1.1 billion. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in revenue from the services through the platform model.
Revenues from product sales through the full-service model increased by 3.3% year-over-year to RMB942.8 million, the increase was primarily attributable to the sales growth of the stores opened in the name of the Company’s top-tier KOLs.

This concludes our prepared remarks. We will now open the call for Q&A. Operator, please go ahead.
Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, we'll now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions] Thank you. The first question comes from the line of Vicky Wei of Citigroup. Please ask your question.
谢谢。 女士们，先生们，我们现在开始问答环节。 [操作员说明]谢谢。 第一个问题来自花旗集团的Vicky Wei。 请问你的问题。
Well, thank you management for taking my questions. And I have three questions. The first one is how many top KOLs currently in the market that engaging advertising as you comment and what is the current competitive landscape in KOL business? What does management seeing competition from other spectrum such as live streaming et cetera?
And my second question is about the macro condition and recent shopping festival, so does company see any positive impacts on the increase usage of live streaming promotions such as in the June 18 shopping festival of merchants and – but in terms of the macro conditions. Are there any adverse impacts on the consumption sentiment and the advertising sentiment due to macro?
And my third question is about financials, the company gives any guidance about the top KOLs store – performance and will company give any update of the profits stipulated timing of the company? Thank you.
好的，谢谢管理层提出我的问题。 我有三个问题。 第一个是目前市场上有多少顶级KOL在您评论时吸引广告，以及KOL业务当前的竞争格局是什么？ 管理层看到来自其他频谱的竞争如实时流媒体等等？
我的第三个问题是关于财务问题，公司提供有关顶级KOL商店的任何指导 - 业绩，公司是否会更新公司的利润规定时间？ 谢谢。
[Foreign Language] I will translate for Mr. Feng. When we talk about the market size of the whole internet KOLs economy, it is a market of more than RMB100 billion. So it is a huge market. And also this market is increasing by an annual rate over 50%. And so that – actually that we are facing a kind of a historical market opportunities. But still that's our observation is that this market is highly fragmented, and which means there are lot of small players in this market.
And Ruhnn is the largest internet KOL facilitator, and we are a builder of fashion brands and currently we take a market of roughly 5% of the whole internet KOL facilitator. But we only take 5%. We are already the largest. So according to our observation the number of our internet KOL, well we are kind of -- we have as many as 120 internet KOL, and the number is growing rapidly. So this is the current market situation and there is a huge room for our growth in the future.
When we talk about the Y-o-Y or less read book actually we are -- we have close bonds with almost all social media platform, which means that we provide the internet KOL, and we also give them the high quality content and then we can secure. They are a large group of fence around the Internet KOL.
So in connection with our resources on the social media platform, we are able to fully utilize our commercial and the brand resources in that whole ecosystem. And according to our understanding of the social media platform and our capabilities in supply chain and monetization, we can not only help our concept get internet KOL to monetize our traffic from the social media platform, we can also help for those internet KOL with short-term limited coverage of counteract. We can help them or even other MCN organization to enhance their efficiency in monetization. So in other words, we didn't see any exceeding in our limitation in our markets and we are very much confidence about our market position.
[Foreign Language] Actually, that the live streaming for to promote sales has been an important way to monetize the content. And we have seen a lots of KOL will take this opportunity to communicate with her fans. And we have also seen that this channel has been an important player -- has played a important role to enhance the efficiency of the communication and also to enhance the conversion.
Especially, the live streaming in RD to promote the sales has been a very important event in the whole year and many of our Internet KOL will participate in these live streaming activities. Actually that we have a very large Internet KOL talent pool, which could help us to reach out to a vast base of our fans. And also that this live streaming provides us a kind of a diversified way for us to monetize our traffic on the social media platform.
So as a conclusion, this live streaming will apparently enhance our competitive advantage and is this live streaming to promote sales that we believe on 6/18 day, we will have very kind of optimistic result. Of course, according to the current macro economic, we have seen in some Internet companies that the revenue from the advertising has been adversely affected.
[外语]我会为冯先生翻译。当我们谈论整个互联网KOL经济的市场规模时，它是一个超过1000亿人民币的市场。所以这是一个巨大的市场。而且这个市场的年增长率超过50％。所以 - 实际上我们正面临着一种历史性的市场机遇。但我们仍然认为，这个市场高度分散，这意味着这个市场上有很多小型企业。
Ruhnn是最大的互联网KOL推动者，我们是时尚品牌的建设者，目前我们占据整个互联网KOL推动者的约5％的市场。但我们只占5％。我们已经是最大的了。所以根据我们的观察，我们的互联网KOL的数量，我们有点 - 我们有多达120互联网KOL，并且数量正在迅速增长。所以这就是目前的市场形势，未来我们的增长空间很大。
实际上，当我们谈论Y-o-Y或更少的阅读书时 - 我们与几乎所有的社交媒体平台都有密切关系，这意味着我们提供互联网KOL，我们也给他们高质量的内容然后我们可以保证。他们是互联网KOL周围的一大群围栏。
[外语]实际上，促销的实时流媒体是将内容货币化的重要途径。我们已经看到很多KOL将借此机会与她的粉丝沟通。而且我们也看到这个渠道一直是一个重要的参与者 - 在提高沟通效率和提升转换方面发挥了重要作用。
However, according to our results in this quarter, our revenue in the platform model has kind of increased by more than four times. So apparently, this is -- I think this is primarily attributable to our large room of internet KOL talent pool. And so we have seen a clear trend that a lot of companies they have increased their budget on the marketing over the social media platform. And that's the reason why we have achieved robust growth in our platform revenue.
Okay. For the profitability of those online store of our top-tier KOL, actually the profitability has been clearly proven. So -- and we foresee that along with the implementation of the China e-commerce law. Our profitability of those online stores of our top-tier KOL will be further enhanced. And also, that we have seen some -- the VAT rate in China has been decreased from 15% to 14%. So this will significantly increased our profitability of the online store operated by us.
And if we are talking about the -- our platform model, as we have just mentioned the proportion of the platform revenue has increased significantly. And actually for the platform model, we're operating in an asset-light manner. So that's the reason why that we could achieve a rapid growth rate of the platform model and we can also enjoy a higher gross margin. So as a result, we are very much confident to achieve profit in the fiscal year of 2020, of course, but excluding those one-off effect such as the possible ERP asset plan.
When we talk about the recent -- our internet KOL did improve so far that we have signed internet KOL talent as many as 128. And we have seen many people performing, actually significantly exceeding our expectations. I just take one recent example of a KOL called Cody [ph] and her contribution of GMV in recent months has exceeded RMB10 million just in one month. So actually this is the first months of her performance. So actually that we have seen a lot of kind of KOL performing very, very, very well. So, we will still [ph] that some rapidly expand our internal KOL reserve and to secure our overall position in this industry.
So, Vicky I think that we have responded to our questions.
然而，根据我们在本季度的结果，我们在平台模型中的收入增加了四倍以上。显然，这是 - 我认为这主要归功于我们大量的互联网KOL人才库。因此，我们已经看到一个明显的趋势，即许多公司已经通过社交媒体平台增加了营销预算。这就是我们实现平台收入强劲增长的原因。
好的。对于我们顶级KOL的在线商店的盈利能力，实际上盈利能力已得到明确证实。所以 - 我们预见到随着中国电子商务法的实施。我们顶级KOL的在线商店的盈利能力将进一步提升。而且，我们已经看到了一些 - 中国的增值税税率从15％降至14％。因此，这将显着提高我们运营的在线商店的盈利能力。
如果我们谈论的是 - 我们的平台模型，正如我们刚刚提到的那样，平台收入的比例显着增加。实际上，对于平台模型，我们以轻资产的方式运营。这就是为什么我们可以实现平台模型的快速增长率，我们也可以享受更高的毛利率。因此，当然，我们非常有信心在2020财年实现盈利，但不包括可能的ERP资产计划等一次性影响。
当我们谈论最近 - 我们的互联网KOL到目前为止已经改善，我们已经签署了多达128的互联网KOL人才。我们看到很多人表演，实际上大大超出了我们的期望。我最近举了一个名为Cody [ph]的KOL的例子，最近几个月她对GMV的贡献在一个月内超过了人民币1,000万元。所以实际上这是她表演的头几个月。实际上，我们已经看到很多种KOL表现非常，非常，非常好。因此，我们仍然会有一些人迅速扩大我们的内部KOL储备并确保我们在这个行业中的整体地位。
Thank you. The next question comes from the line of [Indiscernible] of UBS.
Thank you managements for taking my questions. I have two questions in both Chinese and English.
My English version of the questions include; one is that, can management share any new thoughts on why we are cutting the number of KOLs for service model aggressively? Second question is how should we fully utilize all KOL capacities of top model? Thank you.
我的英文版问题包括; 一个是，管理层可以分享任何关于我们为什么要积极削减服务模型的KOL数量的新想法吗？ 第二个问题是我们应该如何充分利用顶级模型的所有KOL能力？ 谢谢。
Well, as you know, Ruhnn has two businesses one is 1P full service model and the other is 3T, a platform model. There are two kind of business is complementary, and we have realized monetization through the two ways. Well, for the – for our full service model, which is more difficult for Top Tier KOLs who has more fans, who has a large fan-based while, the platform model more simple for established or emerging KOLs, of course that begin their carrier and has a comparatively smaller fan-based.
So strategically in order enlarge our KOLs talent pool, we cultivate and incubate a lot of new or emerging KOLs. So it was new emerging KOLs. The best – but the more simple way for them to monetization is to put them in the platform model, while for our Top Tier KOLs Ruhnn platform, we believe the full service model or the 1P business model – the their monetization efficiency will be much higher.
As you know since January 1, 2019 the e-commerce law in China, it was fully put into implementation. While in this process, we find the platform model will be much simple for established and emerging KOL.
因此，为了扩大我们的KOL人才库，我们培养和孵化了许多新的或新兴的KOL。所以这是新兴的KOL。最好的 - 但更简单的货币化方式是将它们放入平台模型，而对于我们的顶级KOLs Ruhnn平台，我们相信完整的服务模式或1P商业模式 - 它们的货币化效率会高得多。
Thank you. The next question comes from the line of [indiscernible]. Please go ahead.
谢谢。 接下来的问题来自[音频不清晰]。 请继续。
Good evening, management. Hello? Hello?
晚上好，管理层。 你好？ 你好？
Hi. Please go ahead. Hello?
你好。 请继续。 你好？
Good evening, management. Hello. I have three questions on the headline of KOLs. I just wondered if all the KOLs cultivated by yourself or you will send some mature KOLs and how should we think about the growth patterns in the future cultures? This is my question. Thank you.
晚上好，管理层。 你好。 我对KOL的标题有三个问题。 我只是想知道你自己培养的所有KOL是否会发送一些成熟的KOL，我们应该怎样考虑未来文化中的增长模式？ 这是我的问题。 谢谢。
[Foreign Language] Historically, that we have been very successful in incubating amateur which means that kind of an amateur with very limited fan-base and we can incubate them and we can help them to be professional and to start their career within a very short period. And in the future, we will continue to take full advantage of our strong incubation system. And also, we will also fully leverage our vast resources of our top our shops and our connections and the commercial resources to help those KOL not necessarily have a long and complete contract with us.
We can help the KOLs of other MCN organization by providing them with correct or appropriate product and to help them to do the marketing and to do the sales. This is what we do. This is why we have achieved a vast rapid growth in the platform model in this quarter and we believe our goals growth value will continue.
[外语]从历史上看，我们在培养业余爱好者方面非常成功，这意味着那种业余爱好者基础非常有限，我们可以孵化他们，我们可以帮助他们专业，并在很短的时间内开始他们的职业生涯 期。 在未来，我们将继续充分利用我们强大的孵化系统。 此外，我们还将充分利用我们顶级商店的巨大资源以及我们的联系和商业资源来帮助那些KOL不一定与我们签订长期和完整的合同。
我们可以通过向其提供正确或适当的产品来帮助其他MCN组织的KOL，并帮助他们进行营销和销售。 这就是我们的工作。 这就是为什么我们在本季度实现了平台模型的快速增长，我们相信我们的目标增长值将继续。
Okay. Thank you.
Thank you. No question as at this time. Please continue.
