Going forward, we will boost our IT consulting services, including the expansion of our offshore development center (ODC) to offer our clients across the globe with professional IT services as well as provide flexibility to meet their specific needs.

In our previous financial report, we highlighted our plan to strengthen the customized IT solution services to further enhance our financial performance. As a result, we achieved great progress in innovation and business development, such as the successful digital RMB project for a well-known bank in China. Our commitment to investing in advanced IT products and solutions will continue throughout the new fiscal year.

By continuously expanding our global footprint, we were able to better serve our international clients and attract new ones, resulting in an increase in overseas revenue. Particularly, our revenue from the U.S. significantly increased by 2,443.1% year-on-year to $0.9 million. I am confident that our partners and world-class leadership team will capture the significant global growth opportunity ahead for CLPS.

Overall, our business continues to grow as we achieve yet another record-setting revenue. Despite the prevailing macro environment, such as the challenges we faced during the lockdowns in China due to the resurgence of COVID-19 cases, we kept a clear focus on what could be optimized — driving operational efficiency to ensure we provide the services our clients needed while at the same time attaining profitability and executing our growth strategies.

As we pursue the tremendous opportunity that lies ahead of us, we will focus on driving both near and long-term sustainable growth and profitability. While maintaining our competitive position in providing IT services in banking, we also plan to focus more heavily on wealth management area, which we believe has also the potential to be a major revenue source for us going forward. We can achieve these goals through the execution of our streamlined growth strategies and delivering innovative capabilities to drive shareholder value." concluded Mr. Lin.

Ms. Rui Yang, Chief Financial Officer of CLPS, commented, "Our fiscal year 2022 results provided exemplary financial resilience with a sustained year-over-year growth of 20.6% in our top line, as well as healthy profitability and positive operating cash flow. Our dual-engine growth strategy continued to boost our revenue, with 17.8% increase in IT consulting services and 115.2% increase in customized IT solution services. Overall, the fiscal year 2022 was a challenging period for CLPS, and yet we are pleased with the continued momentum that we are seeing in our business."

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain of the statements made in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning and protections of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements include statements with respect to the Company's beliefs, plans, objectives, goals, expectations, anticipations, assumptions, estimates, intentions, and future performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may be beyond the Company's control, and which may cause the actual results, performance, capital, ownership or achievements of the Company to be materially different from future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. All such statements attributable to us are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice, including, without limitation, those risks and uncertainties related to the Company's financial and operational performance in the second half and full year of fiscal 2022, its expectations of the Company's future performance, its preliminary outlook and guidance offered in this presentation, as well as the risks and uncertainties described in the Company's most recently filed SEC reports and filings. Such reports are available upon request from the Company, or from the Securities and Exchange Commission, including through the SEC's Internet website at http://www.sec.gov.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), except that the consolidated statement of changes in shareholders' equity, consolidated statements of cash flows, and the detailed notes have not been presented. The Company uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders, and basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating income is operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of revenues. Non-GAAP net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders is net income attributable to CLPS Incorporation's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses. Basic and diluted non-GAAP net income per share is non-GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders divided by weighted average number of shares used in the calculation of basic and diluted net income per share. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of share-based compensation expenses clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring expenses in its business. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company's net income for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP and GAAP Results" near the end of this release.
