“Despite the headwind from COVID-19 on China’s macro economy and the insurance market, Fanhua still delivered results that beat our previous estimates across various major metrics in the second quarter of 2020, fully demonstrating the sustainability and resilience of our business model.” Commenting on the financial results of second quarter of 2020, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated, “With the gradual resumption of offline business activities since early May, our life insurance business have been steadily growing month-by-month. In June 2020, new life insurance business in annualized premiums equivalent (“APE”) has exceeded RMB180 million, returning to normal levels from before the pandemic. In the second quarter of 2020, our operating income increased 25.3% year-over-year to RMB96.9 million and our life insurance business grew 19.2% year-over-year to RMB2.3 billion in gross written premiums (“GWP”), of which first year regular premiums exceeded RMB611.9 million and renewal premiums grew 37.9% year-over-year to RMB1.7 billion while APE increased 25.3% quarter-over-quarter to RMB385.6 million in the second quarter of 2020. In addition, our claims adjusting business recorded stellar growth of 36.1% year-over-year in the second quarter of 2020, contributed by the breakthrough that we've made in medical-insurance related claims adjusting business.

“As the pandemic is getting under control in China, we have full confidence in achieving year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter positive growth in GWP, total net revenues, APE and non-GAAP operating income excluding share-based compensation expenses in the third quarter of 2020.”

Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2020

Total net revenues were RMB881.5 million (US$124.8 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 1.9% from RMB898.4 million for the corresponding period in 2019.

  • Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB728.5 million (US$103.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 5.6% from RMB771.6 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to the decline of 13.9% year-over-year in first year commission from RMB584.8 million in the second quarter of 2019 to RMB503.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, offset by the growth of 20.5% year-over-year in renewal commissions from RMB186.8 million in the second quarter of 2019 to RMB225.0 million in the second quarter of 2020 as a result of the accumulation of renewal business and high persistency ratio. Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 82.6% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB37.3 million (US$5.3 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 10.8% from RMB41.8 million for the corresponding period in 2019. Revenues for the P&C insurance business mainly derived from commissions generated from Baowang (www.baoxian.com). The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in the sales of accident and travel insurance products distributed through Baowang (www.baoxian.com), offset by the growth in the sales of short term health insurance products. Revenues generated from the P&C insurance business accounted for 4.2% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB115.8 million (US$16.4 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 36.1% from RMB85.1 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The increase was mainly due to the growth in our medical insurance-related claims adjusting business. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 13.2% of our total net revenues in the second quarter of 2020.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB784.6 million (US$111.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 4.4% from RMB821.1 million for the corresponding period in 2019.

  • Commission costs were RMB599.7 million (US$84.9 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 1.6% from RMB590.5 million for the corresponding period in 2019.
     
    • Costs of the life insurance business were RMB506.8 million (US$71.7 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 1.5% from RMB514.3 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease was in line with the decline in net revenues generated from our life insurance business. Costs incurred by the life insurance business accounted for 84.5% of our total commission costs in the second quarter of 2020.

    • Costs of the P&C insurance business were RMB28.6 million (US$4.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 4.4% from RMB27.4 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The costs of the P&C insurance business mainly represent commission costs we incurred for operating Baowang (www.baoxian.com). Costs incurred by the P&C insurance business accounted for 4.8% of our total commission costs in the second quarter of 2020.

    • Costs of claims adjusting business were RMB64.3 million (US$9.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 31.8% from RMB48.8 million for the corresponding period in 2019. Costs incurred by the claims adjusting business accounted for 10.7% of our total commission costs in the second quarter of 2020. The increase was due to the growth in our medical insurance-related claims adjusting business.

  • Selling expenses were RMB70.1 million (US$9.9 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 27.7% from RMB97.0 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease of share-based compensation expenses related to shares subscribed by sales team leaders under the Company’s 521 Plan to approximately RMB70,000 from RMB28.6 million in the corresponding period in 2019. Adjusted selling expenses which excluded share-based compensation expenses were RMB70.1 million (US$9.9 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 2.3% from RMB68.5 million for the corresponding period of 2019. The increase was mainly due to the combined impact of the increase in sales outlets and decreases in travel and conference expenses as a result of fewer offline sales activities affected by the pandemic.
     
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB114.7 million (US$16.2 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 14.1% from RMB133.6 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to reduced travel and conference expenses affected by the pandemic and the decrease of share-based compensation expenses related to shares subscribed by key managerial personnel under the Company’s 521 Plan to approximately RMB28,000 from RMB11.4 million in the corresponding period in 2019. Adjusted general and administrative expenses which excluded share-based compensation expenses were RMB114.7 million (US$16.2 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 6.1% from RMB122.2 million in the corresponding period in 2019.

As a result of the preceding factors, we had an operating income of RMB96.9 million (US$13.7 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 25.3% from RMB77.4 million for the corresponding period in 2019.

Non-GAAP operating income2, which excluded share-based compensation expenses, was RMB97.0 million (US$13.7 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 17.3% from RMB117.4 million for the corresponding period in 2019.

Operating margin was 11.0% for the second quarter of 2020, compared to 8.6% for the corresponding period in 2019.

Investment income was RMB5.3 million (US$0.7 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 67.1% from RMB16.1 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The investment income in the second quarter of 2020 consisted of yields from short-term investments in financial products. The decrease in yields from short-term investments in financial products was mainly due to (i) changes in composition of our short-term investment portfolio, with increased allocation to wealth management products issued by banks which offer relatively lower yields as compared to other financial products in the portfolio; (ii) a year-over-year decrease in yields from wealth management products issued by banks; and (iii) a decrease in cash available for investment in short-term investment products due to the share buyback program implemented in 2019. Our investment income fluctuates from quarter to quarter because investment income is recognized when investments matured or disposed.   

Interest income was RMB5.1 million (US$0.7 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 218.8% from RMB1.6 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The increase in interest income in the second quarter of 2020 was mainly due to short-term loans amounting to RMB90.0 million with 10% annual interest rate.

Income tax expense was RMB30.0 million (US$4.2 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 18.7% from RMB36.9 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2020 was 22.9% compared with 35.0% for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease in effective tax rate was mainly due to (i)exemption from income tax for investment income derived from certain fund product; and (ii) higher share-based compensation expenses in the same period in 2019 which were non-tax deductible.  

Share of income of affiliates was RMB4.5 million (US$0.6 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 84.4% from RMB28.8 million for the corresponding period in 2019, mainly attributable to the decrease in income from CNFinance Holdings Limited (“CNFinance”).

Net income was RMB105.2 million (US$14.9 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 8.0% from RMB97.4 million for the corresponding period in 2019.

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB99.3 million (US$14.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 1.3% from RMB98.0 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The increase was mainly due to the combined impact of the increase in operating income and decreases in investment income and share of income of affiliates.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders4 was RMB99.4 million (US$14.1 million) for the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 28.0% from RMB138.0 million for the corresponding period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to the combined effect of the decrease in non-GAAP operating income and the decreases in investment income and share of income from affiliates.

Net margin was 11.3% for the second quarter of 2020 as compared to 10.9% for the corresponding period in 2019.

About Non- GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company’s consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides adjusted selling expenses, adjusted general and administrative expenses, 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. Adjusted selling expenses are defined as selling expense before share-based compensation expenses related to shares owned by sales team leaders under the Company’s 521 Plan. Adjusted general and administrative expenses are defined as general and administrative expense before share-based compensation expenses related to shares owned by employees under the Company’s 521 Plan. 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 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 shareholders 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.

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.

This standard requires entities to measure all expected credit losses of financial assets held at a reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts in order to record credit losses in a timelier manner.
