        The Q3 revenue increased by 21% year on year to RMB 27.9 billion, and the adjusted net profit was RMB 3.2 billion. Both revenue and net profit were higher than market expectations and CMB International's forecasts. This was mainly due to a higher gross profit margin, better control of operating expenses, and an increase in other income.

        The year-on-year growth rates for e-commerce GMV and revenue were 30% and 37%, respectively, and received wide participation from brands and support for shelf-based e-commerce. DAU increased by 6% YoY, and the shopping center GMV showed a gradual upward trend, with shelf-based GMV accounting for nearly 20% of total GMV. Kuaishou achieved the highest GMV growth on the Singles' Day promotion platform. Advertising revenue also grew by 27% YoY, attributable to external ad recovery and contributions from internal ads.
