Fourth Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Net revenues decreased by 4.2% to RMB993.5 million (US$144.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB1,036.7 million in the previous quarter, primarily due to a decrease in total loan balance during the quarter. The Company's take rate[2] remained relatively stable at 5.0% in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 5.1% in the previous quarter.

  • Loan facilitation service fees remained relatively stable at RMB844.7 million (US$122.9 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB844.5 million in the previous quarter.
  • Post-facilitation service fees decreased by 9.0% to RMB84.2 million (US$12.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, from RMB92.5 million in the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily due to changes in product mix.
  • Other revenues increased by 36.7% to RMB48.9 million (US$7.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, from RMB35.8 million in the previous quarter, primarily due to performance-based fees the Company received in connection with its collaboration with a financial institution for some of its loan products. The increase was partially offset by a decrease in the average rates of late payment penalties and loan collection fees the Company charged as it continued to optimize its collection policies.
  • Net financing income decreased by 69.1% to RMB21.3 million (US$3.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, from RMB68.9 million in the previous quarter, primarily due to changes in the Company's collaborative arrangements with institutional funding partners, and thus a greater proportion of loans funded by institutional funding partners in the fourth quarter of 2018 were not recorded on the Company's balance sheet.

 

[2] "Take rate" is defined as dividing net revenue of a certain period by the period end loan balance.

Provision for loans and advances were RMB326.6 million (US$47.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB186.1 million in the previous quarter. Provision for loans and advances as a percentage of total loan volume increased substantially from 0.5% in the second quarter of 2018 to 1.1% in the third quarter of 2018, and further to 1.9% in the fourth quarter of 2018, driven primarily by macroeconomic headwinds that negatively impacted small and micro enterprises. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the general macroeconomic environment  in China deteriorated significantly which resulted in the Company recording additional allowance for loans and advances after taking into consideration current economic factors. As of December 31, 2018, NPL balance[3] increased by 38.3% from as of September 30, 2018, while allowance for acquired non-performing loans increased by 53.1%.

[3] NPL balance is the total balance of acquired non-performing loans' outstanding principal and interest.

Operating costs and expenses were RMB625.3 million (US$90.9 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB640.7 million in the previous quarter. Operating costs and expenses as a percentage of net revenues increased from 61.8% in the third quarter of 2018 to 62.9% in the fourth quarter of 2018.

  • Provision for financial guarantee liabilities arises out of the Company's off-balance sheet loan facilitations where the Company provided financial guarantees. Provision for financial guarantee liabilities was RMB21.7 million (US$3.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018. Prior to the fourth quarter of 2018, the amount of provision for financial guarantee liabilities was not material.
  • Origination and servicing expenses decreased by 3.3% to RMB413.8 million (US$60.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB428.0 million in the previous quarter, primarily due to continued cost optimization efforts, including closing of certain underperforming service centers and termination of certain employees. Origination and servicing expenses as a percentage of net revenues increased to 41.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 41.3% in the third quarter of 2018.
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 49.1% to RMB39.2 million (US$5.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB77.0 million in the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to the Company's initial public offering in the United States in November 2018, which significantly enhanced Weidai's brand awareness and raised its profile, enabling the Company to engage in fewer marketing activities and increasingly leverage word-of-mouth marketing.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 11.4% to RMB112.9 million (US$16.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB101.4 million in the previous quarter. The increase was primarily due to Weidai's corporate anniversary celebration and related expenses. General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 also included RMB3.9 million (US$0.6 million) IPO-related expenses, compared to RMB6.9 million in the previous quarter.
  • Research and development expenses increased by 10.0% to RMB37.8 million (US$5.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018 from RMB34.3 million in the previous quarter, primarily due to costs related to the development and upgrading of the Company's technology infrastructure.

Share-based compensation expenses were RMB23.2 million (US$3.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB27.8 million in the previous quarter.

Income tax expenses were RMB21.5 million (US$3.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB79.1 million in the previous quarter. The decrease was primarily attributable to tax planning relating to the allocation of tax benefits between the Company's VIE and subsidiaries. In the fourth quarter of 2018, certain of the Company's subsidiaries were qualified as high and new technology enterprises, entitling them to a 15% preferential tax rate from 2018 to 2020.

Net income was RMB110.0 million (US$16.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB187.3 million in the previous quarter.

Net income and comprehensive income attributable to ordinary shareholders was RMB108.7 million (US$15.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB184.8 million in the previous quarter.

Adjusted net income was RMB133.2 million (US$19.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to RMB215.1 million in the previous quarter. 

Full Year 2018 Financial Results

Net revenues increased by 10.4% to RMB3,913.5 million (US$569.2 million) in 2018 from RMB3,545.4 million in 2017, primarily due to an increase in loan facilitation service fees and post-facilitation service fees. The Company's take rate increased to 19.6% in 2018 from 17.7% in 2017.

  • Loan facilitation service fees increased by 17.2% to RMB3,155.7 million (US$459.0 million) in 2018 from RMB2,692.0 million in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to product mix changes that resulted in a higher blended take rate.
  • Post-facilitation service fees increased by 13.9% to RMB342.1 million (US$49.7 million) in 2018 from RMB300.2 million in 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to product mix changes that resulted in a higher blended take rate.
  • Other revenues decreased by 37.8% to RMB189.7 million (US$27.6 million) in 2018 from RMB305.0 million in 2017, primarily due to a decrease in loan collection fees, as the Company continued to optimize its collection policies.
  • Net financing income decreased by 6.7% to RMB246.6 million (US$35.9 million) in 2018 from RMB264.2 million in 2017, primarily due to reduced take rate of on-balance sheet loans.

Provision for loans and advances were RMB751.6 million (US$109.3 million) in 2018, compared to RMB484.1 million in 2017. The increase was primarily due to (i) an increase in delinquency rates as a result of industry-wide turmoil, and macroeconomic headwinds that negatively impacted small and micro enterprises, and (ii) the significant deterioration of the general macroeconomic environment in China which resulted in the Company recording additional allowance for loans and advances after taking into consideration current economic factors. Provision for loans and advances as a percentage of net revenues increased to 19.2% in 2018 from 13.7% in 2017.

Operating costs and expenses increased by 1.7% to RMB2,519.5 million (US$366.4 million) in 2018 from RMB2,476.5 million in 2017. Operating costs and expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased from 69.9% in 2017 to 64.4% in 2018.

  • Provision for financial guarantee liabilities provision for financial guarantee liabilities was RMB21.7 million (US$3.2 million) in 2018.
  • Origination and servicing expenses decreased by 1.5% to RMB1,757.9 million (US$255.7 million) in 2018, from RMB1,784.9 million in 2017, primarily due to continued cost optimization efforts, including closing of certain underperforming service centers and termination of certain employees. Origination and servicing expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 44.9% in 2018 from 50.5% in 2017.
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 19.3% to RMB221.1 million (US$32.2 million) in 2018 from RMB273.8 million in 2017. The decrease was primarily attributable to Weidai's enhanced brand awareness and profile as a public company, which has enabled the Company to engage in fewer marketing activities and increasingly leverage word-of-mouth marketing.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 19.8% to RMB379.4 million (US$55.2 million) in 2018 from RMB316.8 million in 2017. The increase was primarily due to (i) increases in salaries and benefits for headquarters' management, finance and administrative personnel primarily due to salary increases and increase in headcounts, and (ii) IPO-related expenses.
  • Research and development expenses increased by 38.0% to RMB139.3 million (US$20.3 million) in 2018 from RMB101.0 million in 2017, primarily due to (i) an increase in staff salaries and benefits, and an increase in the number of technology personnel, and (ii) costs related to the development and upgrading of the Company's technology infrastructure.

Share-based compensation expenses were RMB106.6 million (US$15.5 million) in 2018, compared to RMB40.7 million in 2017.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted net income, a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. The Company believes that adjusted net income helps identify underlying trends in its business by excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses. The Company believes that adjusted net income provides useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allows for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

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 an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company's operating performance, cash flows or liquidity, investors should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for net income, cash flows provided by operating activities or other consolidated statements of operation and cash flow data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

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