"We delivered solid results in the second quarter and first half of 2021," commented Mr. Bin Zhai, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CNFinance, "There was an increase of demand for asset-backed operating loans driven by the growth of the Chinese national economy which led to the growth in demand for our company's loan facilitation services.

Since the inception of our new collaboration model, we have built a national network consisting of approximately 60 branches in 40 cities. By collaborating with over 2,000 sales partners across China, we are able to establish a wide market coverage and timely serve micro-and small-enterprise (MSE) owners' financing needs. In the first half of 2021, we facilitated loans of RMB6.66 billion, representing a year-over-year growth of 118% from RMB3.05 billion in the first half of 2020.

Our collaboration model has been well recognized by the market as we have refined it since its introduction. In order to secure sales partners' cohesion and loyalty to our platform, we have been consistently optimizing our services.

To achieve our mission of providing accessible, affordable and efficient financing solutions to MSE owners in China and helping them achieve their business dreams, and to follow the government's policy of "developing an inclusive finance system", we will leverage our advantages gained from years of dedicated work in the industry to build a service platform that is asset-light with quick turnover and large scale. We will proactively work with funding partners to roll out diversified loan products and unwaveringly provide MSE owners with affordable, accessible and efficient financial services."

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total interest and fees income decreased by 0.6% to RMB451.5 million (US$69.9 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB454.1 million in the same period of 2020.

Interest and financing service fees on loans decreased by 0.2% to RMB448.8 million (US$69.5 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB449.9 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) increase of average daily outstanding loan principal, and (b) lowered interest rates on loans facilitated to comply with the rules and regulations issued by relevant PRC regulatory authorities, including the Decisions of the Supreme People's Court to Amend the Provisions on Several Issues concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Private Lending Cases issued in August 2020.

Interest on deposits with banks decreased by 35.7% to RMB2.7 million (US$0.4 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB4.2 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to smaller average daily balances of time deposits.

Interest and fees expenses increased by 4.4% to RMB195.0 million (US$30.2 million) for the second quarter of 2021, compared to RMB186.8 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the principals of other borrowings.

Net interest and fees income was RMB256.5 million (US$39.7 million) for the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of 4.0% from RMB267.3 million in the same period of 2020.

Collaboration cost for sales partners increased by 2.6% to RMB106.7 million (US$16.5 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB104.0 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to the increased loan balance under the collaboration model.

Net interest and fees income after collaboration cost was RMB149.8 million (US$23.2 million) for the second quarter of 2021, a decrease of 8.3% from RMB163.3 million in the same period of 2020.

Provision for credit losses decreased by 74.2% to RMB14.7 million (US$2.3 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB56.5 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly attributable to the combined effect of (a) the increase in outstanding loan principal under the collaboration model that was guaranteed by the CRMPs put up by the sales partners; (b) lower probability of default (PD) under the current expected credit loss (CECL) model which takes into account a more positive outlook for the Chinese economy in the second quarter of 2021 as compared to that of the same period of 2020 under the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, and (c) the Company received recoveries in the quarter after charged down loans that are 180 days past due to net realizable value.

Net gains on sales of loans decreased by 67.5% to RMB11.9 million (US$1.8 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB36.6 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to the reason that the Company revised its charge-off policy to charge down loans that are 180 days past due to net realizable value since December 31, 2020, and the proceeds resulting from disposing of loans charged down are recognized as recoveries.

Other gains, net increased by 60.9% to RMB10.3 million (US$1.6 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB6.4 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to cash dividend paid by Qingyuan Rural Commercial Bank in the quarter, in relation to non-marketable equity securities held by the Company.

Total operating expenses decreased by 23.5% to RMB87.4 million (US$13.5 million) for the second quarter of 2021, compared with RMB114.3 million in the same period of 2020.

Employee compensation and benefits increased by 12.8% to RMB52.0 million (US$8.0 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB46.1 million in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to higher social security and housing fund benefits provided for employees resulting from the end of the phased reduction policy released by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic in the second quarter of 2020.

Share-based compensation expenses decreased by 69.7% to RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB15.5 million in the same period of 2020. According to the Company's share option plan adopted on December 31, 2019, approximately 50%, 30% and 20% of the option granted will be vested on December 31, 2020, 2021 and 2022, respectively. Related compensation cost of the option grants will be recognized over the requisite period.

Taxes and surcharges decreased by 29.4% to RMB8.4 million (US$1.3 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB11.9 million for the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to a decrease in the non-deductible value added tax ("VAT"). The decrease in VAT was attributable to the characterization of certain amounts as "service fees charged to trust plans" which are a non-deductible item. According to Chinese tax regulations, "service fees charged to trust plans" incur a 6% VAT on the subsidiary level, but are not recorded as an input VAT on a consolidated trust plan level. "Service fees charged to trust plans" was significantly decreased in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020 due to maturity of some trust plans.

Operating lease cost decreased by 38.3% to RMB3.7 million (US$0.6 million) for the second quarter of 2021 as compared to RMB6.0 million for the same period of 2020, primarily due to the continued development of the collaboration model that allowed the Company to further reduce the office leasing costs which was used to rent offices to accommodate sales staff.

Other expenses decreased by 46.6% to RMB18.6 million (US$2.9 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB34.8 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the decrease in (a) attorneys' fees, and (b) the cost related to promoting the collaboration model.

Income tax expense decreased by 46.2% to RMB8.4 million (US$1.3 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB15.6 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to a decrease in the amount of taxable income.

Effective tax rate decreased to 11.4% for the second quarter of 2021 from 38.2% in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) a decrease in non-deductible share-based compensation expenses to RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) for the first quarter of 2021 from RMB15.5 million in the same period of 2020; and (b) the proceeds of RMB42.9 million (US$6.6 million) tax-free dividends from securities investment funds in the second quarter of 2021.

Net income increased by 158.7% to RMB65.2 million (US$10.1 million) for the second quarter of 2021 from RMB25.2 million in the same period of 2020.

Interest and financing service fees on loans decreased by 7.3% to RMB870.8 million (US$134.8 million) in the first half of 2021 from RMB939.1 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the combined effect of (a) increase of average daily outstanding loan principal, and (b) lowered interest rates on loans facilitated in an effort to comply with the rules and regulations issued by relevant PRC regulatory authorities, including the Decisions of the Supreme People's Court to Amend the Provisions on Several Issues concerning the Application of Law in the Trial of Private Lending Cases issued in August 2020.

Taxes and surcharges decreased by 39.4% to RMB15.1 million (US$2.3 million) in the first half of 2021 from RMB24.9 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease in VAT was attributable to the characterization of certain amounts as "service fees charged to trust plans" which are a non-deductible item.

Effective tax rate increased to 20.0% for the first half of 2021 from 2.3% in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the fact that (a) a decrease in the non-deductible share-based compensation expenses to RMB9.4 million (US$1.5 million) for the first half of 2021 from RMB31.0 million in the same period of 2020; and (b) the Company recorded a net loss before income tax of RMB41.5 million in the first half of 2020 which led to a negative tax effect.

Recent Development

Mr. Li Ning will step down from the Company's Chief Financial Officer position in November 2021 due to personal reasons. Mr. Li has served as the Company's Chief Financial Officer since 2010. The Company greatly appreciates Mr. Li's significant contribution in leading CNFinance to become a nation-wide home equity loan service provider, as well as his dedicated work in the Company's transformation from a privately held company into a NYSE listed company since 2018. The Company has already commenced the search process for Mr. Li's successor.

Business Outlook

The extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the Company's results of operations will depend on future developments of the pandemic in China and across the globe, which are subject to change and substantial uncertainty and therefore cannot be predicted. For the third quarter of 2021, based on the information available as of the date of this press release, we expect net income to be between RMB30 and RMB50 million.

The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects our current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions, which are all subject to substantial uncertainty.
