Commenting on the fourth quarter and 2016 financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, Chief  Executive Officer of Fanhua, stated, "We had exceptional growth in 2016, during which our insurance premiums increased by 49.7% year-over-year to RMB14.6 billion and net revenues increased by 66.2% year-over-year to RMB4.7 billion. We generated positive operating income for two consecutive quarters in the second half of 2016, which boosted total operating income in 2016 to RMB14.0 million.  These positive results were primarily due to the significant growth of our life insurance business, effective cost controls and the substantial progress we have made in implementing multiple strategic initiatives, including the expansion of our sales network, enhanced cross-selling efforts, the upgrade and promotion of CNpad and the initiation of several marketing campaigns."

"The outstanding performance in 2016 shows the success of our business strategies. In 2017, we plan to further increase our profitability by investing more on our life insurance business. We remain optimistic about our growth momentum, and expect to generate no less than RMB180 million of operating income in 2017."

Financial Results for the Fourth quarter of 2016

Total net revenues were RMB1.5 billion (US$221.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 78.4% from RMB860.0 million for the corresponding period in 2015.

  • Net revenues for the insurance agency business were RMB1.2 billion (US$175.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 82.5% from RMB668.4 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily driven by a 52.8% increase in net revenues derived from the P&C insurance agency business, from RMB561.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 to RMB857.4 million (US$123.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, and a 237.9% increase in net revenues derived from the life insurance agency business, from RMB107.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 to RMB362.3 million (US$52.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016. The growth of the P&C insurance agency business was primarily due to a 38.6% growth in insurance premiums as a result of enhanced marketing efforts. The increase in net revenues generated from the life insurance agency business was primarily due to a 284.8% increase in commissions derived from new long-term life insurance policy sales, primarily driven by the successful implementation of our cross-selling strategy and industry growth. Revenues generated from the insurance agency business accounted for 79.5% of total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2016.
     
  • Net revenues for the insurance brokerage business were RMB211.1 million (US$30.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 122.1% from RMB95.0 million for the corresponding period in 2015.

  • Total operating costs were RMB1.2 billion (US$168.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 81.9% from RMB642.7 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily due to sales growth.

    - Costs of insurance agency business were RMB932.6 million (US$134.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 81.3% from RMB514.4 million for the corresponding period in 2015, primarily driven by a 53.4% increase in costs for the P&C insurance agency business to RMB687.5 million (US$99.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, and a 269.9% increase in costs for the life insurance agency business to RMB245.1 million (US$35.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase in costs for the P&C insurance agency business was primarily driven by sales growth and increased commissions paid to sales agents in the highly competitive auto insurance market. The increase in the costs for the life insurance agency business was generally in line with the increase in revenues in that business in the fourth quarter of 2016. Costs incurred by the insurance agency business accounted for 79.8% of total operating costs in the fourth quarter of 2016.

    - Costs of insurance brokerage business were RMB179.5 million (US$25.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 137.3% from RMB75.6 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

  • Selling expenses were RMB185.2 million (US$26.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 227.2% from RMB56.6 million for the corresponding period in 2015, primarily attributable to RMB134.7 million (US$19.4 million) in marketing expenses in the fourth quarter of the year.
     
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB145.3 million (US$20.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 13.6% from RMB127.9 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily due to increases in payroll and rental expenses, partially offset by declines in share-based compensation expense and depreciation expenses.

As a result of the preceding factors, we had an operating income of RMB34.7 million (US$5.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 5.7% from RMB32.8 million for the corresponding period in 2015.

Operating margin was 2.3% for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to 3.8% for the corresponding period in 2015. The decrease in operating margin for the fourth quarter of 2016 was mainly due to enhanced marketing efforts to develop market shares in 2016. 

Investment income was RMB53.8 million (US$7.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 157.8% from RMB20.9 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The investment income represented yields from short-term investments in financial products which mainly consist of inter-bank deposits or collective trust products with a term of half a year to two years, which pay interest on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. Our investment income fluctuates from quarter to quarter because these investments are classified as available for sales and investment income is recognized when received.

Interest income was RMB0.4 million (US$0.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing a decrease of 96.1% from RMB9.2 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The decrease in interest income was primarily due to decreases in term deposits as a result of an increase in short-term investments.

Income tax expense was RMB20.5 million (US$3.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 131.1% from RMB8.9 million for the corresponding period in 2015. The increase was primarily due to an increase in investment income. The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2016 was 23.2% compared with 13.1% for the corresponding period in 2015.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB13.9 million (US$2.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 460.3% from RMB2.5 million for the corresponding period in 2015, mainly attributable to an increase of profits from Sincere Fame International Limited, in which the Company owns 20.6% of the equity interests.

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB74.6 million (US$10.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2016, representing an increase of 35.4% from RMB55.1 million for the corresponding period in 2015.

Net margin was 4.9% for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared with 6.4% for the corresponding period in 2015. The decrease in net margin for the fourth quarter of 2016 was mainly due to enhanced marketing efforts to increase market shares in 2016. 

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were RMB1.28 (US$0.18) and RMB1.23 (US$0.18) for the fourth quarter of 2016, respectively, representing increases of 34.1% and 34.6% from RMB0.96 and RMB0.91 for the corresponding period in 2015.
