SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jiayin Group Inc. (“Jiayin” or “the Company”) (JFIN), a leading online individual finance marketplace in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019.

  • Investment volume2 was RMB6,242 million, representing a decrease of 7.8% from the same period of 2018, and a decrease of 18.6% sequentially

  • Average investment amount per investor was RMB56,653, representing an increase of 32.7% from the same period of 2018

  • Average borrowing amount per borrower was RMB7,122, representing a decrease of 3.4% from the same period of 2018

  • Net income was RMB168.6 million, representing a decrease of 19.8% from the same period of 2018, and a decrease of 33.7% sequentially

Mr. Yan Dinggui, the founder, Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Our operating results in the second quarter reflect the challenges faced by all players in our industry. We were impacted both by compliance with the government’s triple decline policy and by generally unfavorable market conditions, yet by operating conservatively we sustained very attractive profitability. We are confident that we can emerge from this period of regulatory uncertainty with a strong and growing business, and achieve our long-term growth objectives.”

Financial Results

Net revenue was RMB635.6 million (US$92.6 million), representing a decrease of 6.6% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to reduced loan origination volume in the second quarter of 2019.

Revenue from loan facilitation services was RMB477.0 million (US$69.5 million), representing a decrease of 13.5% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to reduced loan origination volume.

Revenue from post-origination services was RMB85.8 million (US$12.5 million), representing an increase of 66.2% from the same period of 2018, as we benefitted from the accumulated loans originated during prior periods.

Origination and Servicing Expense was RMB127.7 million (US$18.6 million), representing an increase of 26.0% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to the increased expenses associated with risk control and credit assessment.

Allowance for Uncollectible Receivables and Contract Assets was RMB70.8 million (US$10.3 million), representing an increase of 23.2% from the same period of 2018, primary due to unfavorable industry conditions.

Sales and Marketing expense was RMB149.8 million (US$21.8 million), representing a decrease of 27.7% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to reduced advertisement spending for promotional activities.

General and Administrative expense was RMB51.5 million (US$7.5 million), representing an increase of 63.2% from the same period of 2018, primarily due to increased payroll expenses and certain share-based compensation expense related to options granted in October 2018.

Research and Development expense was RMB50.5 million (US$7.4 million), representing an increase of 33.9% from the same period of 2018, as the Company continued to improve its technology for credit assessment.

Income from operations was RMB185.4 million (US$27.0 million), representing a decrease of 24.4% from the same period of 2018.

Net income attributable to Jiayin Group shareholders was RMB168.9 million (US$24.6 million), compared with RMB210.2 million in the same period of 2018.

3 The Company has adopted ASU No. 2016-02, “Leases,” beginning January 1, 2019 and elected to utilize a modified retrospective approach which allowed the Company to initially apply the new lease standard at the adoption date and recognize a cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings of 2019, with no adjustments to prior periods presented. No cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings were made. The adoption of the new guidance did not have a material effect the Company’s our results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.
