Commenting on the financial results of the second quarter of 2019, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated, “With the intensifying trade conflict between the U.S. and China and the increasing complexity and uncertainty in the international geopolitical landscape, the security and stability of the financial system has been a top priority for the Chinese state and regulatory authorities since early 2018. In 2019, we have seen the further tightening of regulatory supervision. As a result, new premiums for individual regular life insurance products in the life insurance industry dropped significantly in 2018 and the first half of 2019. It is expected that such negative growth in the industry may continue into the second half of 2019.

“In the first half of 2019, as compared to 16.0% year-over-year growth of the life insurance industry, our life insurance business registered solid growth of 39.1% year-over-year to RMB4.2 billion in terms of total insurance premiums, of which first year premiums (“FYP”) increased by 19.5% year-over-year to RMB1.5 billion, annualized premiums equivalent (“APE”) was flattish year-over-year at RMB1.0 billion and renewal insurance premiums grew by 53.6% year-over-year to approximately RMB2.7 billion. Non-GAAP adjusted operating income was RMB247.1 million (US$36.0 million) for the first half of 2019, representing an increase of 13.5% from a year ago.

“In the second quarter of 2019, our life insurance business grew by 32.9% year-over-year to RMB2.0 billion in terms of total insurance premiums, outpacing the overall industry growth of 12.1%. Renewal insurance premiums increased by 64.5% year-over-year to approximately RMB1.3 billion. Our new business was flattish year-over-year in terms of FYP to RMB709.3 million and APE decreased by approximately 12.9% to RMB485.3 million. The decrease of APE was because one of our best-selling insurance products recorded a surge of sales in the month before it was taken off shelf at the end of June 2018. As a result, our life insurance new business in terms of APE reached as high as RMB330 million in the single month of June 2018 while APE in June 2019 was RMB205 million, representing a drop of 37.9% year-over-year since there was no such sales activity in the second quarter of 2019.

“Non-GAAP operating income was RMB117.4 million for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 8.0% for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease mainly reflects the decrease of APE for the above-mentioned reasons.

“Management believes that:

  1. With the expanding household disposal income and rising awareness of the benefits of insurance, there will be burgeoning demand for insurance products among Chinese consumers.

  2. Amidst the irreversible trend of the separation of insurance underwriting and distribution, independent insurance intermediaries will benefit from the great opportunities arising from the structural transformation.

“In view of this analysis, management made the decisions as follows:

  1. Adjusting our financial guidance for 2019. For the second half of 2019, we expect APE to grow by 15% year-over-year and non-GAAP operating income to grow by no less than 10% year-over-year. For the full year of 2019, APE is expected to grow by 5% year-over-year and non-GAAP operating income is expected to increase by no less than 10% year-over-year. 

  2. Launching a “Shenzhou 100”  business development strategy. The key of this strategy is to expand our sales network in large and medium-sized cities in China by establishing more tier-one branches within the next five years, as part of our efforts to pursue high quality growth. These tier-one branches will be directly under the management of the Group. We believe the implementation of the “Shenzhou 100” development strategy will help attract more professional managerial talents from the insurance industry to join Fanhua and further optimize the structure of our agency force, therefore allowing more elite agents to start their own business in Fanhua. It will also enable us to accumulate and tap into higher-end customer base on a larger scale.

“Fanhua has continued to outpace industry growth in the second quarter and first half of 2019, which indicated the healthy and solid based of our operations. We have full confidence that the implementation of the “Shenzhou 100” strategy will inject a strong momentum into Fanhua to drive our continued growth in the long run.”

Share Repurchase Program

From March 13, 2019 to August 19, 2019, the Company has purchased an aggregate of 2,437,754 ADSs, at an average price of approximately US$28.1 per ADS for a total amount of approximately US$68.5 million, under its share buyback program to repurchase up to US$200 million ADSs by December 31, 2019, as previously announced by its board of directors in March 2019.

Pursuant to its share buyback programs carried out in both 2018 and 2019, a total of 3,861,528 ADSs have been repurchased at an average price of approximately US$27.2 per ADS for a total amount of approximately US$104.9 million, as of August 19, 2019.

Financial Results for the second quarter of 2019

Total net revenues were RMB898.4 million (US$130.9 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 7.6% from RMB972.1 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

  • Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB771.6 million (US$112.4million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 4.5% from RMB808.3 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease was mainly driven by the decrease in first year commissions of 14.1% year-over-year to RMB584.8 million, offsetting the increase in renewal commissions of 46.7% year-over-year to RMB186.8 million. Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 85.9% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2019.

  • Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB41.8 million (US$6.1 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 54.5% from RMB91.8 million for the corresponding period in 2018. Revenues for the P&C insurance business consist of commissions generated from Baowang and the technology service fees based on the volume of insurance premiums transacted through CNpad. The decrease was primarily due to the termination of cooperation between Baowang (www.baoxian.com) and one of its major channel partners in June 2018. Revenues generated from the P&C insurance business accounted for 4.6% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2019.

  • Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB85.1 million (US$12.4 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 18.2% from RMB72.0 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was mainly due to growth in revenues from auto-insurance related claims services. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 9.5% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2019.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB821.1 million (US$119.6 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 2.8% from RMB844.5 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

The decrease in commission cost was mainly in line with the decrease of life insurance and P&C insurance business. 

    • Costs of the life insurance business were RMB514.3 million (US$74.9 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 7.1% from RMB553.4 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

    • Costs of the P&C insurance business were RMB27.4 million (US$4.0 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 62.5% from RMB73.0 million for the corresponding period in 2018 which was largely in line with the decrease in sales. The costs of the P&C insurance business mainly represent commission costs incurred for business on Baoxian.com. Costs incurred by the P&C insurance business accounted for 4.6% of our total operating costs in the second quarter of 2019.

  • Selling expenses were RMB97.0million (US$14.1 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 80.0% from RMB53.9 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to an increase of sales outlets in the second half of 2018 and the recognition of RMB28.6 million (US$4.1 million) share-based compensation expenses related to shares subscribed by sales team leaders under the Company’s 521 Plan in the second quarter of 2019. Selling expenses which excluded share-based compensation expenses were RMB68.4 million (US$10.0 million) in the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 26.9% from RMB53.9 million for the corresponding period of 2018. The increase was mainly due to the expansion of life insurance distribution network.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB133.6 million (US$19.5 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 12.3% from RMB119.0 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was mainly due to the recognition of RMB11.4 million (US$1.7 million) share-based compensation expenses related to shares subscribed by key managerial personnel under the Company’s 521 Plan in the second quarter of 2019. General and administrative expenses which excluded share-based compensation expenses were RMB122.2 million (US$17.8 million) in the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 2.7% from RMB119.0 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

Investment income was RMB16.1 million (US$2.3 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 63.3% from RMB43.9 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease was mainly due to i) a decrease in cash reserve as a result of the Company’s increased spending on share buyback, cash dividends and the Company’s 521 Plan; ii) the maturity of certain higher-yield financial products over the course of the second quarter of 2019 with the remaining short term investment portfolio primarily consisting of wealth management products issued by banks which have relatively lower yields than the former; and iii) year-over-year decrease in yields from wealth management products issued by banks. The investment income represents yields from short-term investments in financial products. Our investment income fluctuates from quarter to quarter because investment income is recognized when received.

Interest income was RMB1.6 million (US$0.2 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 82.4% from RMB9.1 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

Income tax expense was RMB36.9 million (US$5.4 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 35.6% from RMB57.3 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

The increase in effective tax rate was mainly because share-based compensation expenses are non-tax deductible.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB28.8 million (US$4.2 million) for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 42.1% from RMB49.7 million for the corresponding period in 2018, mainly attributable to a decrease of profits from CNFinance Holdings Limited ("CNFinance") due to the change of its business model. CNFinance started to develop a new collaboration model in the first quarter of 2019. Under such model, CNFinance collaborates with its sales partners which are dedicated to introduce CNFinance and its loan services to prospective borrowers. The sales partners will be required to contribute an amount equal to 20% of the loans issued to the borrowers introduced by them.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company’s consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides Non-GAAP operating income, Non-GAAP operating margin, Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders, Non-GAAP net margin and Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating income is defined as operating income before share-based compensation expenses associated with the Company’s 521 Plan. Non-GAAP operating margin is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as Non-GAAP  operating income as a percentage of net revenue. Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders is defined as net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders before share-based compensation expenses associated with the Company’s 521 Plan. Non-GAAP net margin is a non-GAAP measure that is defined as Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company's shareholders3 as a percentage of net revenue. Non-GAAP basic net income per ADS is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders before share-based compensation expenses associated with the Company’s 521 Plan  divided by total weighted average number of ADS outstanding of the Company during the period. Non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders before share-based compensation expenses associated with the Company’s 521 Plan divided by total weighted average number of diluted ADS outstanding of the Company during the period. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company’s performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. One limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that such measures exclude items that were significant in the second quarter and first half of 2019, and these items have been, and will continue to be, significant recurring factors in our business.

In light of these limitations, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and other interested persons to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliations of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” set forth at the end of this release.

12 In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases (Topic 842)" and associated ASUs related to Topic 842, which requires organizations to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by those leases. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Topic 842, using the modified retrospective transition approach, applying the new standard to leases existing at the date of initial adoption, and prior periods were not restated. In addition, the Company elected to apply the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance which does not require reassessment of prior conclusions, lease classification and initial direct lease costs. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of lease assets and liabilities of RMB182 million and RMB181 million respectively on January 1, 2019. The adoption of the new guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated statements of income and consolidated statements of cash flows.
