Mr. Zhengdong Zhu, Chairman and CEO of CDEL, said,A "We concluded fiscal 2020 with fourth-quarter revenue of $65.5 million, exceeding the upper end of our guidance range. This quarter's revenue outperformance was primarily driven by a less-severe than previously expected impact from the pandemic-related postponement or suspension of certain professional certification examinations. The appreciation of the Renminbi against U.S. dollar also contributed to the fourth quarter revenue performance. However, our cash receipts from online course registrationA have declined year-over-year for the past three consecutive quarters due to the COVID-19 pandemic."
