Commenting on the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018 financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated,” Against the backdrop of tightened regulation focusing on steering the China’s life insurance industry back to its fundamental function of providing protection to the society, and as the Circular No. 134 issued by the CIRC in 2017 continued to exert its impact in 2018, we are glad to report a continued solid set of key operating metrics which beat our prior expectations. Our annualized insurance premiums (“APE”) on regular life insurance products increased by 3.8% year-over-year to RMB1.9 billion in 2018 while the renewal insurance premiums registered a strong growth of 119.3% year-over-year to RMB3.7 billion, leading to a total of RMB6.2 billion life insurance premiums, representing a growth of 46.2% year-over-year.

“Our operating income grew by 55.9% year-over-year to RMB425.7 million in 2018, with net income growing by 35.8% year-over-year to RMB609.9 million and earnings per American Depositary Share (“ADS”) up 34.8% year-over-year to US$1.43. We declared and distributed cash dividend of US$1.00 per ADS in 2018, representing a dividend payout ratio of 69.9%.

 

“We wrapped up the year with strong note in the fourth quarter of 2018, with an operating income increasing by 34.3% from the corresponding period in 2017 to RMB83.4 million, primarily driven by a stellar growth of 80.9% year-over-year in total insurance premiums to RMB 1.7 billion, of which APE on regular life insurance products grew by 37.7% to RMB467.9 million and renewal insurance premiums grey 100.4% year-over-year to RMB1.1 billion.

 

“Looking ahead to 2019, as the complex international geopolitical landscape adds to uncertainty in macroeconomic environment in China and abroad, the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission will highly likely focus on strict regulatory supervision and risk control. However, we are convinced that we are on track towards a continued growth, benefiting from a rapidly expanding middle class in China and accelerated trend of separation of manufacturing from distribution, and based on Fanhua’s scalable platform, rapidly expanding sales force, nationwide footprint and large customer base built over the past 21 years.

 

“As such, we expect our APE on regular life insurance products to increase by 30% year-over-year and operating income by 40% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2019.

 

“For 2019, we expect APE on life insurance products to increase by 30% year-over-year to RMB2.5 billion, renewal insurance premiums to grow by 50% year-over-year to RMB5.6 billion, and operating income to grow by 40% to RMB600 million.

 

“Investment income is expected to drop in 2019 mainly due to a decrease in cash reserve as a result of the Company’s increasing spending on share buyback and cash dividends, and the loans related to the Company’s 521 development plan, while share of income from affiliate may decline in 2019 as CNFinance Holdings Ltd(“CNFinance”), in which Fanhua owns 18.5% equity interests, intends to upgrade its business model from heavy-asset model to light-asset platform model which may impact its profit in 2019.

 

“As a result of the aforementioned factors, we expect a slight increase in net income attributable to shareholders in 2019 on a year-on-year basis. However, as the shares related to the 521 development plan will be treated as treasury shares which won’t be included in the shares used for calculating basic earnings per share, according to relevant rules under the US GAAP, we anticipate that the growth of our basic earnings per share will be around 10%.

“On March 8, 2019, our board of directors (the “Board”) passed the below resolutions:

 

Firstly, the Board approved to increase the Company’s annual dividend by 20% from US$1.0 per ADS in 2018 to US$1.2 per ADS in 2019, which will be paid on a quarterly basis.

 

“Secondly, the Board approved a share repurchase program, authorizing the management to execute the repurchase of up to US$200 million of the Company’s ADSs by December 31, 2019, in any form that the management may deem fit.”

 

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2018

 

Total net revenues were RMB871.9 million (US$126.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 26.3% from RMB690.5 million for the corresponding period in 2017.

 

Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB735.0 million (US$106.9 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 49.9% from RMB490.3 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The increase was mainly driven by the growth in first year commissions as a result of the rapid growth in the number of sales agents and renewal commissions as a result of high persistency ratio. Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 84.3% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB 39.3 million (US$5.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of 61.4% from RMB101.9 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The decrease was primarily due to i) the suspension of cooperation with an online lending service provider since June 2018; and ii) the transition of our auto insurance business from a commission-based business model towards a platform business model starting from the fourth quarter of 2017. Revenues for the P&C insurance business are mainly derived from commissions generated from Baoxian.com and the technology service fees based on the volume of insurance premiums transacted 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 4.5% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB97.6 million (US$14.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of 0.7% from RMB98.3 million for the corresponding period in 2017. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 11.2% of our total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2018.

uCosts of the P&C insurance business were RMB23.1 million (US$3.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing a decrease of 72.6% from RMB84.2 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The decrease was in line with the decrease in sales. The costs of the P&C insurance business for the fourth quarter of 2018, mainly represent commission costs incurred for business on Baoxian.com.

Selling expenses were RMB71.5 million (US$10.4 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 16.3% from RMB61.5 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The increase was primarily due to an increase of sales outlets.

 

General and administrative expenses were RMB121.5 million (US$17.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 10.1% from RMB110.4 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The increase was primarily due to an increase in expenses incurred for setting up new offices and staff recruitment as a result of regional expansion of life branches.

 

As a result of the preceding factors, we had an operating income of RMB83.4 million (US$12.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 34.3% from RMB62.1 million for the corresponding period in 2017.

 

Operating margin was 9.6% for the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to 9.0% for the corresponding period in 2017.

 

Investment income was RMB42.9 million (US$6.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 8.6% from RMB39.5 million for the corresponding period in 2017. The investment income represents 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. The decline in the balance of short term investments as of December 31, 2018 was primarily due to a decrease of cash reserve as a result of cash dividend and share buyback executed in 2018 and loans related to the Company’s 521 development plan.
