SHENZHEN, China, Nov. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LexinFintech Holdings Ltd. (“Lexin” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LX), a leading online consumption and finance platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“The third quarter marks the beginning of the structural transformation of our core business. The team has been able to gradually bring down the loan pricing while keeping the take rate at a healthy level,” said Mr. Jay Wenjie Xiao, Lexin’s chairman and chief executive officer. “The results have demonstrated our ability in responding to changes and ensuring the resilience of our operations.”

“Net profit rose over 68% year over year in the third quarter as gross margin was improved by almost 20 percentage points,” said Ms. Sunny Rui Sun, Lexin’s chief financial officer. “Quality growth is a key focus. At the same time, we will continue to support the overall profitability by strengthening cost management and operational efficiency.”

“We’ve been proactive in mitigating the pressure on asset quality coming from the changes in policy and macro environment. The 90 day+ delinquency ratio (1) stood unchanged at 1.85% quarter on quarter,” said Mr. Jayden Yang Qiao, Lexin’s chief risk officer. “We will continue to optimize our asset mix and are confident that the credit performance will stabilize and improve in the long term.”

1 90 day+ delinquency ratio refers to outstanding principal balance of on- and off-balance sheet loans that were 90 to 179 calendar days past due as a percentage of the total outstanding principal balance of on- and off-balance sheet loans on our platform as of a specific date. On-balance sheet loans that were over 179 calendar days past due and charged off are not included in the delinquency rate calculation. Off-balance sheet loans that were over 179 calendar days past due are assumed charged off and not included in the delinquency rate calculation. The Company does not distinguish on the basis of the on- or off-balance sheet treatment in monitoring the credit risks of borrowers and the delinquency status of loans.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Operating revenue decreased from RMB3,154 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB2,969 million in the third quarter of 2021. This decrease in operating revenue was due to the decreases in credit-oriented services income and online direct sales and services income, partially offset by an increase in platform-based services income.

Online direct sales decreased by 13.4% from RMB462 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB400 million in the third quarter of 2021. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in the number of e-commerce orders during the third quarter of 2021.

Credit-oriented services income decreased by 12.8% from RMB2,025 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB1,765 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease of guarantee income, partially offset by increases in loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented income, interest and financial services income and other revenues.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented increased by 12.1% from RMB1,058 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB1,187 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to the increase in off-balance sheet loans originated under credit-oriented model as a result of the continuing growth of our business, with the expansion of partnerships with institutional funding partners.

Guarantee income decreased by 72.5% from RMB598 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB164 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the significant decrease of loan origination and outstanding balances of the off-balance sheet loans funded by certain institutional funding partners, which are accounted for as guarantee liabilities under ASC 460, Guarantees.

Platform-based services income increased by 26.3% from RMB614 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB775 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily contributed by an increase in the loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based increased by 19.3% from RMB580 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB693 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the origination of off-balance sheet loans under the performance-based model within platform-based services, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform.

Cost of sales decreased by 8.2% from RMB476 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB437 million in the third quarter of 2021, which is consistent with the decrease of online direct sales revenue.

Funding cost decreased by 25.7% from RMB143 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB106 million in the third quarter of 2021, which was consistent with the decrease of the funding debts to fund the on-balance sheet loans. The decrease in funding debts was mainly due to the shortened weighted average tenor for on-balance sheet loans.

Processing and servicing cost increased by 44.7% from RMB362 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB524 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in risk management and collection expenses and an increase in fees to third-party payment platforms.

Provision for credit losses of financing receivables decreased by 0.4% from RMB217 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB216 million in the third quarter of 2021. The credit losses have reflected the most recent performance in relation to the Company’s on-balance sheet loans and the Company has continued to implement prudent credit assessment and risk management policies and procedures.

Provision for credit losses of contract assets and receivables increased by 22.5% from RMB104 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB128 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was mainly due to the increase in off-balance sheet loans originated as a result of the continuing growth of our business.

Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee decreased by 94.1% from RMB874 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB51.4 million in the third quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the significant decrease of loan origination of the off-balance sheet loans funded by certain institutional funding partners, which are accounted for as guarantee liabilities under ASC 460, Guarantees.

Gross profit increased by 54.0% from RMB978 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB1,507 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase in the gross profit is primarily due to the decrease in funding cost and provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee, partially offset by the increase in processing and servicing cost and the decrease in operating revenue.

Sales and marketing expenses increased by 36.4% from RMB360 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB491 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in online advertising cost, and an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

Research and development expenses increased by 10.7% from RMB118 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB131 million in the third quarter of 2021. This increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 2.0% from RMB103 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB100 million in the third quarter of 2021. This decrease was primarily due to an improvement in cost management.

Change in fair value of financial guarantee derivatives was a loss of RMB92.3 million in the third quarter of 2021, as compared to a loss of RMB21.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. The loss was primarily due to the re-measurement of the expected loss rates and changes in the balances of the underlying outstanding off-balance sheet loans at the balance sheet date.

Change in fair value of loans at fair value was a gain of RMB11.5 million in the third quarter of 2021. Starting from the third quarter of 2020, for the loans we acquired/purchased from the relevant funding partners during the period, we account for them using fair value option pursuant to ASC 825, Financial Instruments, and record them as “Loans at fair value”. Changes in fair value of these loans are reported net and recorded as “Change in fair value of loans at fair value”.

Income tax expense increased by 137.0% from RMB44.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB106 million in the third quarter of 2021. The increase was consistent with the increase of the taxable income from the same period of 2020. In addition, in the third quarter of 2020, RMB16.2 million income tax provision relating to 2019 was reversed as one subsidiary of Lexin was certified to be qualified for using a preferential tax rate of 10% for 2019 annual tax clearance in the quarter.

Net income increased by 68.5% from RMB345 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB581 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company increased by 44.8% from RMB443 million in the third quarter of 2020 to RMB641 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

In evaluating our business, we consider and use adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company, non-GAAP EBIT, adjusted net income per ordinary share and per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company, 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 attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company as net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company excluding share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, investment-related impairment, and investment (loss)/income and we define non-GAAP EBIT as net income excluding income tax expense/(benefit), share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment (loss)/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 attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company 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 (loss)/income. Non-GAAP EBIT, on the other hand, enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of income tax expense/(benefit), share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment (loss)/income. We also believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates 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 attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company 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/(benefit), interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment (loss)/income have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company 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.
