“We added 98,632 paying clients on a net basis, more than half of whom were from Hong Kong and overseas. Organic growth continued to contribute over 50% of our new paying clients in the quarter. As of year-end, paying clients reached 516,721, representing 160.5% year-over-year growth. We exceeded our full-year paying client guidance by adding approximately 320,000 paying clients in 2020.”

“Total client assets in Money Plus were HK$10.2 billion, up 68.5% year-over-year. We have established partnerships with 39 asset managers around the world which altogether hosted 39 live-streaming sessions on our Futubull platform in 2020 to conduct fund publicity and investor education. Over 42,000 clients, or 8.1% of our total paying client base, held wealth management positions as of year-end, offering significant room for further penetration.”

Futu I&E continues to be the go-to enterprise service partner. We had 105 IPO and IR clients as of year-end. In the fourth quarter, 10 IPOs recorded over HK$10 billion in subscription, respectively, on our Futubull platform, including the US IPOs of Miniso and Lufax, and the HK IPOs of Pop Mart and JD Health. We also added 33 ESOP clients in the quarter, bringing our total ESOP client number to 159.”

As we further enhanced our capital base, we are able to support a larger margin financing balance, ramp up our marketing efforts in international markets, and further invest into our technology infrastructure.”

Revenues

Total revenues were HK$1,186.4 million (US$153.0 million), an increase of 281.6% from HK$310.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Brokerage commission and handling charge income was HK$718.3 million (US$92.6 million), an increase of 373.8% from HK$151.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The rise was mainly due to the 438.1% year-over-year growth of our total trading volume.

Interest income was HK$336.9 million (US$43.5 million), an increase of 163.2% from HK$128.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in margin financing interest income was mainly driven by the sharp increase in daily average margin financing balances and higher IPO financing interest income due to an active Hong Kong IPO market.

Other income was HK$131.2 million (US$16.9 million), an increase of 317.8% from HK$31.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The jump was primarily due to increases in our IPO subscription service charge income and currency exchange service income.

The Company provides investing services through its proprietary digital platform, Futubull, a highly integrated application accessible through any mobile device, tablet or desktop.

Futu has also embedded social media tools to create a network centered around its users and provide connectivity to users, investors, companies, analysts, media and key opinion leaders.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, as a supplemental measure to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company defines non-GAAP adjusted net income as net income excluding share-based compensation expenses and impairment from equity method investment. The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure because it is used by the management to evaluate the operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP adjusted net income enables the management to assess the Company's operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses and impairment from equity method investment, which are non-cash charges. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP adjusted net income is that it does not reflect all items of expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in the business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP adjusted net income. Impairment from equity method investment may not continue to be incurred in the business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP adjusted net income. Further, the non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance.

For more information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please see the table captioned "Unaudited Reconciliations of Non-GAAP and GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this press release.
