Mr. Haisheng Wu, Chief Executive Officer and Director of 360 DigiTech, commented, “We are very pleased to report yet another strong quarter with best ever operational metrics and record setting financial results. In the third quarter, loans originated through our digital platform grew nearly 18% year-on-year to reach RMB66.0 billion despite some regulatory headwinds late in the quarter. During the quarter approximately 28% of the loan origination was under the capital-light model and other technology solutions*9, for which we bear no or limited principal risk. As part of our long-term strategy to build a data driven, technology empowered digital platform, we expect to accelerate the growth of those platform solutions in the coming quarters.

Throughout the quarter, we have witnessed continued recovery in consumer demand for credit and further improvement in asset quality. In fact, some key leading indicators of asset quality of our customers are at the best levels ever, a strong testimony for our effective risk management and solid overall execution. As the domestic outbreak of COVID-19 has been largely contained and the macro economy is on a recovery track, we are well positioned to benefit from the positive trends and to further strengthen our leadership position in the industry.

It has been a quite busy period over last few months on the regulation front. In July, the official release of the “Interim Measures for Administration of Internet Loans Issued by Commercial Banks” by the CBIRC clearly validated our business model and provided detailed guidelines for the industry. In August, the Supreme People’s Court of China issued “Guidelines on Laws Applicable to Trials of Private Lending Cases” setting a series of rules for private lending, including an interest rate cap. In early November, the CBIRC issued a draft version of “Interim Administrative Measures for Online Micro-credit Business” aiming to cap leverage ratios in micro lending and joint-lending activities. We believe this new set of rules are consistent with the regulators’ effort in recent years to deleverage the financial system and mitigate potential systematic risk. We have marginal exposure in micro lending and joint-lending. Also in November, the CBIRC issued “Notice on Promoting the Sustainable Development Capability of Consumer Finance and Auto Finance Companies and Improving Quality and Efficiency of Financial Services”, which clearly set out specific practices for the cooperation between consumer finance companies and loan facilitation platforms. Such regulatory changes appeared favoring leading platform with strong risk management and regulatory compliance capability. We see opportunities to expand the service scope and depth of our data driven technology empowered digital platform to reach our long-term strategic goals.”

“We are very excited to report our first ever billion RMB quarter in term of non-GAAP net income. During the quarter, total revenue reached RMB3.70 billion and non-GAAP net income reached RMB1.29 billion. The robust financial performance was driven by noticeable improvement in macro environment and continued optimization of our operations.” Mr. Alex Xu, Chief Financial Officer, commented “We are particularly pleased to see the initial impact of the latest interest rate cap was partially offset by improved operational efficiency. Unit customer acquisition cost remained relatively stable and weighted average funding cost reached another new low in the quarter. At the end of the quarter we had approximately RMB7.9 billion in cash and cash equivalent on the balance sheet, of which approximately RMB4.8 billion was non-restricted. While there are still some uncertainties concerning our industry, we are highly confident to exceed the stated operational targets we set out earlier this year.”

Mr. Yan Zheng, Chief Risk Officer, added, “The noticeable improvement in asset quality continued in the quarter. Among the key leading indicators, Day-1 delinquency*10 decreased to approximately 5.3% at the end of the third quarter from approximately 6.2% at the end of the second quarter. Meanwhile the 30-day collection rate*11 also improved to approximately 90% at the end of the third quarter, compared to approximately 88% at the end of the second quarter. Furthermore we are encouraged to see some of these metrics continue to improve into the current quarter and some are already at the best level ever. This further demonstrates the strength and effectiveness of our risk management systems. While we have seen clear indications of macro improvement, we will continue to take prudent approach in overall risk management operations to ensure sustainable enhancement in asset quality.”

9 "We've used mainly data technology tools and AI risk management systems in the process of providing such services as loan facilitation, post-origination and borrowers' referral to our customers. Revenue from these technology powered services amount to 53% of our total net revenue. "
10 "D1 delinquency rate" is defined as (i) the total amount of principal that became overdue as a specified date, divided by (ii) the total amount of principal that was due for repayment as of such date.
11 "M1 collection rate" is defined as (i) the amount of principal that was repaid in one month among the total amount of principal that became overdue as a specified date, divided by (ii) the total amount of principal that became overdue as a specified date.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total net revenues was RMB3,703.5 million (US$545.5 million), compared to RMB2,583.0 million in the same period of 2019, and RMB3,340.1 million in the prior quarter.

Net revenue from Credit Driven Services was RMB2,955.4 million (US$435.3 million), compared to RMB2,129.3 million in the same period of 2019, and RMB3,081.1 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year growth was mainly due to the releasing of guarantee liabilities under the new accounting standard, and the increase in loan origination.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-capital heavy were RMB1,220.7 million (US$179.8 million), compared to RMB1,555.1 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB1,353.9 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and sequential decrease was primarily due to a decline in interest rates of the loans, partially offset by increase of origination volume.

Financing income*12 was RMB530.8 million (US$78.2 million), compared to RMB409.8 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB628.1 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year growth and sequential decline were primarily due to the changes in volume of on-balance sheet loans. 

Revenue from releasing of guarantee liabilities was RMB1,172.6 million (US$172.7 million), compared to RMB119.6 million in the same period of 2019, and RMB1,076.6 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to the change of accounting standard, and the sequential growth was due to increase in origination volume.

Other services fees were RMB31.2 million (US$4.6 million), compared to RMB44.8 million in the same period of 2019, and RMB22.6 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and sequential changes were primarily due to fluctuation of late payment fees.

Net revenue from Platform Services was RMB748.1 million (US$110.2 million), compared to RMB453.8 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB258.9 million in the prior quarter.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-capital light were RMB663.4 million (US$97.7 million), compared to RMB336.3 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB178.6 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to growth in loan origination volume under capital-light model. The robust sequential growth was in part due a reversal of the take rate reduction in the second quarter related to higher projected delinquency of certain capital light assets. The actual performance of such assets turned out better than expected in the third quarter.

Referral services fees were RMB68.1 million (US$10.0 million), compared to RMB113.0 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB64.5 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to a decrease in volume of referral business as a result of a more conservative customer acquisition strategy adopted during the first half of 2020 in the backdrop of the COVID-19.

Other services fees were RMB16.7 million (US$2.5 million), compared to RMB4.5 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB15.9 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and sequential increases were mainly due to growth in late payment fees as loan origination volume under capital-light model increases.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB2,332.1 million (US$343.5 million), compared to RMB1,640.7 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB2,346.8 million in the prior quarter.

Origination and servicing expenses were RMB408.7 million (US$60.2 million), compared to RMB290.0 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB399.8 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to growth in loan origination volume and an increase in collection fees as we proactively expanded our collection operations early this year. The sequential increase was partially offset by improvement in operational efficiency.

Funding costs were RMB144.6 million (US$21.3 million), compared to RMB118.4 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB161.1 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was mainly driven by growth in loan origination volume while funding cost percentage continued to decline. The sequential decrease was mainly due to funding cost percentage decline.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB271.1 million (US$39.9 million), compared to RMB896.9 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB269.1 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to a more conservative customer acquisition strategy and more effective customer acquisition operations.

General and administrative expenses were RMB102.4 million (US$15.1 million), compared to RMB85.6 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB109.5 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was due to expanded business operations, partially offset by our continued effort to improve operational efficiency, which also resulted in sequential decline in general and administrative expenses.

Provision for loans receivable was RMB67.4 million (US$9.9 million), compared to RMB151.0 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB218.6 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year and sequential decline was in part due to the reversal of provision for previous quarters’ on balance sheet loans as asset quality improved.

Provision for financial assets receivable was RMB81.6 million (US$12.0 million), compared to RMB44.6 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB79.2 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was due to growth in loan facilitation volume and higher projected default rates. The sequential increase is mainly due to the growth in loan volume and partially offset by the decreased projected default rates.

Provision for accounts receivable and contract assets was RMB66.2 million (US$9.7 million), compared to RMB54.2 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB90.8 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase was due to growth in loan origination under capital light and higher projected default rates. The sequential decline was driven by improving asset quality.

Provision for contingent liability was RMB1,190.2 million (US$175.3 million), compared to RMB1,018.9 million in the prior quarter. The sequential increase was mainly due to growth in loan origination, partially offset by the reversal of provision for loans originated in prior quarters as those loans performed better than initially expected.

Income from operations was RMB1,371.4 million (US$202.0 million), compared to RMB942.4 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB993.2 million in the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP income from operations was RMB1,427.8 million (US$210.3 million), compared to RMB964.7 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB1,058.9 million in the prior quarter.

Business Outlook

While it is still prudent to take a conservative approach in business and financial planning given the fast changing regulatory environment as well as some residual impact from the COVID-19, we are encouraged by the strong business momentum. As such the Company would like to raise its total loan origination volume target for fiscal year 2020 to the range of RMB 242 billion to RMB 244 billion, from previous guidance of RMB 200 billion to RMB 220 billion. This forecast reflects the Company’s current and preliminary views, which is subject to change.

Recently Adopted Accounting Guidance

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments which has subsequently been amended by ASU 2018-19, ASU 2019-04, ASU 2019-05, ASU 2019-10, ASU 2019-11 and ASU 2020-03. This ASU is intended to improve financial reporting by requiring timelier recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments held by financial institutions and other organizations. This ASU requires the measurement of all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. For public business entities, the guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including final periods within those fiscal years.

We have adopted the new standard effective January 1, 2020, using the modified retrospective transition method. The new guidance requires the recognition of credit losses to be measured using an expected credit loss model (referred to as the current expected credit loss (CECL) model). ASC 326 establishes a new accounting principle which requires gross accounting for guarantee liability. That is, to record both a guarantee obligation and an allowance for credit losses, calculated using the CECL impairment model, in addition to the guarantee obligation under ASC 460. As a result, at inception of the guarantee, we have recognized both a stand-ready guarantee liability under ASC 460 with an associated financial assets receivable, and a contingent guarantee liability with an allowance for credit losses under CECL model. Subsequent to the initial recognition, the ASC 460 stand-ready guarantee is recognized into guarantee revenue over the term of the guarantee, while the contingent guarantee is reduced by the payouts made by the company to compensate the investors upon borrowers' default. Upon adoption, we recognized the cumulative effect of approximately RMB1.43 billion after tax as a decrease to the opening balance of retained earnings and RMB1.9 billion as an increase to the opening balance of guarantee liabilities as of January 1, 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measure, which is adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expenses. Reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to our U.S. GAAP financial measures are set forth in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details on the non-GAAP financial measures.

We use non-GAAP income from operation, non-GAAP operation margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income margin in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Non-GAAP income from operation represents income from operation excluding share-based compensation expenses, and non-GAAP net income represents net income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Such adjustments have no impact on income tax. We believe that non-GAAP income from operation and non-GAAP net income help identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that we include in results based on U.S. GAAP. We believe that non-GAAP income from operation and non-GAAP net income provide useful information about our operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision-making. Our non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, our calculation of non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited.
