Commenting on the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2017 financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated, “Owing to strong performance in the past four quarters, our total operating income in 2017 grew to RMB273.1 million, far above our previous expectation of RMB180 million, and net income attributable to shareholders grew by 186.0% year-over-year to RMB449.2 million.

 

“During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Chinese life insurance industry reported single digit year-over-year growth of 2.4% following the implementation of Circular No. 134, which banned the fast-return feature of annuity and endowment insurance products and prohibited life insurers from selling universal life insurance as an add-on to regular life policies. Against this backdrop, we still achieved 50% year-over-year growth in life insurance premiums in the same period which contributed to year-over-year growth of approximately 191.1% to RMB62.1 million in our operating income, once again beating guidance.

 

“As we enter 2018, new premiums were down across the life insurance market during the Jumpstart sales season, due to the drastic decline in the sales of annuity and universal products which used to be the major contributors behind the rapid growth in life insurance premiums in the past two years. Sales in these products have decreased mainly as a result of high bond yields and CIRC-guided product changes towards higher protection features in new product design. Despite that, we believe that the structural growth of the life insurance market will continue as there is still significant room for more growth in the sales of protection-oriented life insurance products.

 

“As for Fanhua, protection-oriented insurance products have always been and will continue to be our focus. With continued growth in the life insurance business, we are optimistic that our operating income will grow by approximately 40% year-over-year in 2018.”

 

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2017

 

Total net revenues were RMB690.5 million (US$106.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 47.8% from RMB1,323.4 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB490.3 million (US$75.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 35.3% from RMB362.3 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was due to the growth in the number of sales agents and the rapid growth of renewal commissions. Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 71.0% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB101.9 million (US$15.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 88.1% from RMB857.4 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to i) our decision to terminate lower margin channel businesses starting from the second quarter of 2017 and ii) implementation of a platform business model for our auto insurance business beginning the fourth quarter of 2017. Under the new platform business model, we no longer enter into contracts with property and casualty insurance companies for the distribution of auto insurance products through our individual sales agents to earn profits from the commission spread. Rather, we operate CNpad as a public auto insurance transaction platform which connects insurance distributors with our sales agents and charge insurance distributors technology service fees based on the volume of insurance premiums they transact through CNpad. A technology service fee is typically much smaller than the commission we previously received from insurance companies, though our costs are minimal. Revenues generated from the P&C insurance business accounted for 14.8% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017.

 

Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB98.3 million (US$15.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 5.2% from RMB103.7 million for the corresponding period in 2016. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 14.2% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2017.

 

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB628.3 million (US$96.6 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 51.7% from RMB1,302.0 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

  Commission costs were RMB456.4 million (US$70.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 53.9% from RMB989.8 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease in commission cost was mainly due to the decrease in P&C insurance business, partially offset by the growth of life insurance business.

 

Costs of the life insurance business were RMB314.5 million (US$48.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 28.3% from RMB245.1 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was in line with the growth in sales. Costs incurred by the life insurance business accounted for 68.9% of our total commission costs in the fourth quarter of 2017.
   
Costs of the P&C insurance business were RMB84.2 million (US$12.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 87.8% from RMB687.5 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to the implementation of a platform business model for our P&C insurance business whereby no cost is incurred for the platform model. Costs incurred by the P&C insurance business accounted for 18.5% of our total commission costs in the fourth quarter of 2017.
   
Costs of claims adjusting business were RMB57.6 million (US$8.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 0.5% from RMB57.3 million for the corresponding period in 2016. Costs incurred by the claims adjusting business accounted for 12.6% of our total commission costs in the fourth quarter of 2017.

  Selling expenses were RMB61.5 million (US$9.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 63.4% from RMB168.1 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily because promotional marketing subsidies were paid to sales agents in the fourth quarter of 2016 for selling auto insurance policies while there was no such promotional marketing plan in 2017.
     
  General and administrative expenses were RMB110.4 million (US$17.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 23.4% from RMB144.1 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to a significant reduction in expenses related to P&C insurance agencies as a result of the disposal of our P&C insurance agency subsidiaries in the fourth quarter of 2017, partially offset by an increase in expenses incurred for setting up new offices and staff recruitment as a result of regional expansion.

 

As a result of the preceding factors, we had an operating income of RMB62.1 million (US$9.6 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 191.1% from RMB21.3 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

Operating margin was 9.0% for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 1.6% for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

Investment income was RMB39.5 million (US$6.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing a decrease of 26.6% from RMB53.8 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The investment income represented yields from short-term investments in financial products which mainly consist of inter-bank deposits or collective trust products with terms ranging from half a year to two years and interest payable on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. Our investment income fluctuates from quarter to quarter because investment income is recognized when received.

 

Interest income was RMB12.4 million (US$1.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 40.3 times from RMB0.3 million for the corresponding period in 2016, primarily due to interest related to amounts due from Sincere Fame International Limited (“Sincere Fame”) and Shenzhen Chuangjia Investment Limited Partnership, which beneficially owns 84.6% of Fanhua Puyi Fund Sales Limited.

 

Income tax expense was RMB38.1 million (US$5.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 102.7% from RMB18.8 million for the corresponding period in 2016. The effective tax rate for the fourth quarter of 2017 was 32.9% compared with 25.1% for the corresponding period in 2016. The increase in effective tax rate was primarily due to the withholding income tax provided pursuant to dividend payments in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB55.2 million (US$8.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 297.1% from RMB13.9 million for the corresponding period in 2016, mainly attributable to an increase of profits from Sincere Fame, a company in which we own 20.6% of the equity interest.

 

Net income from continuing operations was RMB132.9 million (US$20.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 89.3% from RMB70.2 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

 

Net loss (income) from discontinued operations was RMB1.2 million (US$0.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, mainly representing the loss from disposal of the brokerage segment in the fourth quarter.

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB126.9 million (US$19.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 70.1% from RMB74.6 million for the corresponding period in 2016.

Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB1,355.8 million (US$208.4 million) for 2017, representing a decrease of 50.8% from RMB2,755.9 million in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to i) our decision to terminate lower margin channel businesses starting from the second quarter of 2017; ii) implementation of a platform business model for our auto insurance business beginning the fourth quarter of 2017; and iii) the suspension of business cooperation with PICC Property and Casualty Company Limited (“PICC P&C”) starting from March 1, 2017.
