Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Highlights: Total Gross Written Premiums (“GWP”) facilitated on our platform in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by 63.0% to a record quarterly high of RMB1,047.0 million, compared to RMB642.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Total GWP facilitated on our platform for the full year of 2020 increased by 49.9% to RMB3,019.9 million from RMB2,014.3 million in 2019.Total operating revenue in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by 50.3% to a record quarterly high of RMB388.1 million (US$59.5 million), compared to RMB258.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Total operating revenue for the full year of 2020 increased by 22.8% to RMB1,220.2 million from RMB993.3 million in 2019.Cumulative number of insurance clients served increased to approximately 6.8 million, and cumulative number of insured clients was approximately 57.6 million as of December 31, 2020. Mr. Cunjun Ma, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Huize, commented, “Despite the uncertain macro conditions throughout the year, we delivered robust results due to our years of experience in the insurance industry, the competitive advantages of our online platform business model, our unique focus on long-term insurance products distribution and our industry-leading digital development capabilities.” “During the year, we constantly enriched our product offerings. For example, we launched the “Darwin 3” critical illness insurance, which was yet another success of our proprietary “Darwin” product line. We also took the lead in the customization of annuity products and launched our first online version of joint-life annuity which was also a unique feature and innovation in China’s online insurance market. Moreover, we launched AI Proposal application and a new version of consultant workstation in order to improve service capabilities and client experience. As the pandemic further accelerated the switch of insurance purchase preference from offline to online, our differentiated services and market reputation enabled us to continue attracting and converting new users.” “Such achievements are the driving force behind our ongoing development and advancement. Looking ahead, we are confident in the prospects of the online insurance industry in China, and we aim to further establish Huize as the go-to digital insurance product and service platform for the new generation consumers empowered by data and technology.” “In order to achieve this goal, we will fully embrace digitalization, continuously strengthen our technology research and development as well as talent acquisition, and enhance Huize’s core competencies. At the same time, we will promote a comprehensive strategic upgrade by expanding our offline business in first-tier cities such as Shanghai and Shenzhen by setting up high value client service centers to further optimize the service experience and maximize clients’ lifetime value. Moreover, we will strengthen our collaborations with upstream and downstream partners along the industry value chain and we expect Huize to become a more open platform with a fuller range of products and services in its insurance ecosystem, including medical and healthcare. Additionally, we will take full advantage of the capital markets, actively identify high-quality investment targets, and improve our platform’s value proposition and market positioning through mergers and acquisitions to further realize our development strategy.” Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results Total operating revenue Total operating revenue in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by RMB129.8 million, or 50.3%, to RMB388.1 million (US$59.5 million) from RMB258.3 million in the same period of 2019. The increase in total operating revenue was primarily driven by an increase in brokerage income, which increased by 52.5% year over year to RMB386.8 million (US$59.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in brokerage income was primarily driven by the 63.0% increase in total GWP facilitated, which amounted to RMB1,047.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2020, of which first year premiums accounted for RMB613.6 million and renewal premiums accounted for RMB433.5 million.

Research and development expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by RMB4.0 million, or 33.9%, to RMB15.8 million (US$2.4 million) from RMB11.8 million in the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to an increase in the number of R&D personnel.

The increase was primarily due to the cash proceeds raised from the Company’s initial public offering in February 2020. Business Outlook Based on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the current market conditions, the Company currently expects total operating revenue for the first quarter of 2021 to be in the range of RMB650 million to RMB700 million. This forecast reflects the Company’s current and preliminary views on the market and operational conditions, which are subject to change as a result of various market uncertainties, including those related to the continued outbreak of COVID-19 globally.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measure Statement In evaluating our business, we consider and use non-GAAP net profit/(loss) as a supplemental measure to review and assess our 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. We define non-GAAP net profit/(loss) as net profit/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses and interest on convertible bond. Such adjustments have no impact on income tax because either the non-GAAP adjustments were recorded at entities located in tax free jurisdictions, such as the Cayman Islands or because the non-GAAP adjustments were recorded at operating entities located in the PRC for which the non-GAAP adjustments were not deductible for tax purposes. We present the non-GAAP financial measure because it is used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP net profit/(loss) enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses and the interest on convertible bond. We also believe that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance. This non-GAAP financial measure is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net profit/(loss) is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial measure may differ from the non-GAAP financial information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. The non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net profit/(loss) or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of our operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measure in light of the most directly comparable GAAP measure, as shown below. The non-GAAP financial measure presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measure presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting the usefulness of such measures when analyzing our data comparatively. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. Exchange Rate Information This announcement contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. dollars at a specified rate solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from RMB to U.S. dollars and from U.S. dollars to RMB are made at a rate of RMB6.5250 to US$1.00, the exchange rate on December 31, 2020 set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board. The Company makes no representation that the RMB or U.S. dollars amounts referred could be converted into U.S. dollars or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate or at all.

    In the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the world economy and sparked a period of high volatility across all major global stock markets. Under these conditions, investors are turning their attention from a stock's short-term performance to a company's ability to capture opportunities from the turbulence. On the other hand, the pandemic has also drawn investors' attention to the insurance industry, which has capitalized on new, significant opportunities. Among insurance stocks, Huize (HUIZ.US), widely known as "China's first listed e-insurance platform", is projected to again set a quarterly high in the fourth quarter of 2020.
