FinVolution Group (the “Company”) is submitting via EDGAR the following information as required under Item 16I(a) of Form 20-F.
On May 26, 2022, the Company was conclusively identified by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) as a Commission-Identified Issuer pursuant to the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act. The Company filed an annual report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2021 with the SEC on April 29, 2022, containing an audit report issued by PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP, a registered public accounting firm retained by the Company, for the preparation of the audit report on the Company’s financial statements included therein. PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP is a registered public accounting firm headquartered in mainland China, a jurisdiction where the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the “PCAOB”) had determined that it was unable to inspect or investigate completely registered public accounting firms that were headquartered there. The PCAOB subsequently vacated this determination in December 2022.
In response to Item 16I(a) of Form 20-F, based on the following information, the Company believes it is not owned or controlled by a governmental entity in China.

Susquehanna Fundamental Investments, LLC and Susquehanna Securities, LLC (collectively, the “Susquehanna Entities”) are limited liability companies established in Delaware. To the Company’s knowledge, the Susquehanna Entities are not owned or controlled by a governmental entity of China. As reported in a Schedule 13G/A filed jointly by the Susquehanna Entities on February 14, 2023, and based on the Company’s register of members, the Susquehanna Entities beneficially owned 82,648,730 Class A ordinary shares of the Company as of December 31, 2022. Based on the total outstanding ordinary shares of the Company as of March 31, 2023 and assuming that the Susquehanna Entities’ shareholding had not changed since December 31, 2022, the Susquehanna Entities beneficially owned 5.9% of the Company’s total outstanding ordinary shares and held 0.7% of the Company’s aggregate voting power as of March 31, 2023.
