“I am happy to report one of Lexin's strongest quarters ever,” said Mr. Jay Wenjie Xiao, Lexin's chairman and chief executive officer. “Thanks to our new consumption-focused strategy which helps unlock the consumption potential of hundreds of thousands of educated young Chinese consumers, we were able to capitalize on the unique opportunities in the market and register both strong customer and business growth in the quarter.” 

“Lexin's strong performance is a reflection of our continued efforts in building both online and offline consumption scenarios, increasing the financing options available to our customers, and providing new customer benefits and rewards, in order to establish a more comprehensive ecosystem for our customers,” continued Mr. Xiao. “In addition, we acquired a significant number of new customers this quarter, and we are confident that our growth for our shareholders will remain strong for the remainder of 2019 and beyond.”

“All metrics for our core businesses were very strong for the quarter.” said Mr. Craig Yan Zeng, Lexin’s chief financial officer. “In particular, our total loan originations reached RMB37.0 billion and our total loan balance reached RMB51.5 billion, representing an increase of 170% and 99.5% from the same period in 2018.” 

“In spite of the challenges to many in the industry, our credit performance and credit quality continues to be strong,” said Mr. Ryan Huanian Liu, Lexin’s chief risk officer. “Our vintage charge-off rate7 is just over 2.0%, and our 90 day+ delinquency rate was 1.40% as of September 30, 2019. We expect to continue to perform strongly even as we continue to expand our customer base in the future.”

7 Vintage charge-off rate refers to, with respect to on- and off-balance sheet loans originated during a specified time period, which we refer to as a vintage, the total outstanding principal balance of the loans that are charged off during a specified period, divided by the total initial principal of the loans originated in such vintage.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results:

Operating revenue increased from RMB1.9 billion in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB3.2 billion in the third quarter of 2019. This increase in operating revenue was due to the increase in online direct sales revenue and financial services income for the quarter, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform.

Online direct sales increased by 73.3% from RMB571 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB989 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to the significant increase in the number of orders driven by several sales promotional events during the quarter.

Financial services income increased by 76.0% from RMB1.2 billion in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB2.2 billion in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily contributed by the increase in the loan facilitation and servicing fees, partially offset by the decrease in interest and financial services income and other revenues.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees increased by 238% from RMB558 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB1.9 billion in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to significant increase in off-balance sheet loans originated as a result of the continuing growth of our business, with the expansion of partnerships with institutional funding partners.

Interest and financial services income and other revenues decreased by 60.2% from RMB664 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB264 million in the third quarter of 2019 due to a decrease of outstanding loan balance of on-balance sheet loans as a result of model adjustments made to Juzi Licai in the second quarter of 2018. Under the adjusted business model, we act as an intermediary between the borrowers and the individual investors. Based on the assessment of the accounting impact in respect of the adjusted business model, all new loans funded by individual investors on Juzi Licai under this new business model have been accounted for as off-balance sheet loans accordingly, commencing from late April 2018. Prior to that, loans funded by individual investors on Juzi Licai were accounted for as on-balance sheet loans. As a result, interest and financial services income and other revenues generated from the on-balance sheet loans funded by individual investors on Juzi Licai decreased significantly.

Cost of sales increased by 69.1% from RMB579 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB979 million in the third quarter of 2019, which is consistent with the increase of online direct sales revenue.

Funding cost decreased by 43.5% from RMB208 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB118 million in the third quarter of 2019, which is consistent with the decrease of the interest and financial services income and other revenues.

Processing and servicing cost increased by 115% from RMB82.5 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB177 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to an increase in fees to third-party payment platforms, an increase in credit assessment cost and an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.
           
Provision for credit losses of financing receivables decreased by 23.6% from RMB201 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB154 million in the third quarter of 2019, which is consistent with the decrease in the on-balance sheet loans originated on our platform. The Company is continuing to improve its credit assessment and risk management capabilities to enhance its collection efforts while maintaining credit risks at a reasonable level.

Provision for credit losses of contract assets and service fees receivable increased by 407% from RMB11.8 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB59.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was mainly due to the significant increase in off-balance sheet loans originated as a result of the continuing growth of our business.

Gross profit increased by 122% from RMB767 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB1.7 billion in the third quarter of 2019. The significant increase in the gross profit is primarily due to the significant increase of loan facilitation and servicing fees generated from the off-balance sheet loans.

Sales and marketing expenses increased by 278% from RMB134 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB508 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to an increase in online promotional fees and advertising costs and an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

Research and development expenses increased by 29.4% from RMB93.6 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB121 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

General and administrative expenses increased by 51.2% from RMB73.5 million in the third quarter of 2018 to RMB111 million in the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

Loss on guarantee liabilities for the third quarter of 2019 was RMB45.8 million, which resulted from loss incurred during our performance of the guarantee for loans funded by individual investors on Juzi Licai that are covered by risk safeguard scheme.

Change in fair value of financial guarantee derivatives was a loss of RMB119 million in the third quarter of 2019. The loss was primarily due to the re-measurement of the expected default rates of the underlying outstanding off-balance sheet loans at the balance sheet date.

Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2019 was RMB124 million, compared to income tax expense of RMB74.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to the significant increase of our taxable income from the same period of 2018.

Net income for the third quarter of 2019 was RMB724 million, representing an increase of 62.0% from RMB447 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2019 was RMB714 million, representing an increase of 53.3% from RMB466 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Outlook

Based on Lexin’s preliminary assessment of the current market conditions, the Company now expects total loan originations for the fiscal year 2019 to be between RMB115 billion and RMB125 billion, representing an upward adjustment from the  assessment of RMB115 billion previously disclosed in the Company’s earnings release for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. This is Lexin’s current and preliminary view, which is subject to changes and uncertainties.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

In evaluating our business, we consider and use adjusted net income, non-GAAP EBIT, adjusted net income per ordinary share and per ADS, four non-GAAP measures, as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of the 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 U.S. GAAP. We define adjusted net income as net income excluding share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, investment-related impairment, and investment income and we define non-GAAP EBIT as net income excluding income tax expense, share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment income.

We present these non-GAAP financial measures because it is used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, investment-related impairment and investment income. Non-GAAP EBIT, on the other hand, enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of income tax expense, share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment income. We also believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate investors’ assessment of our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net income and non-GAAP EBIT is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, income tax expense, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment income have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income and non-GAAP EBIT. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP financial information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

We compensate for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
