Financial Highlights for the First Quarter of 2019:

 

Commenting on the first quarter 2019 financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, stated, “In the first quarter of 2019, total personal insurance premiums in China reached RMB1.3 trillion, with an increase of 18.0% year-over-year, while many life insurance companies saw a major decline in their first year regular life insurance premiums and a continued drop in sales headcount.

 

“Against this backdrop, our life insurance business registered strong growth of 45.1% year-over-year to RMB2.2 billion in terms of total insurance premiums, of which first year premiums increased by 45.6% year-over-year to RMB809.1 million, annualized insurance premiums increased by 20.9% year-over-year to RMB533.0 million and renewal insurance premiums grew by 44.9% year-over-year to approximately RMB1.4 billion. The solid growth of our life insurance business was due to the continued expansion of salesforce and a more balanced product mix strategy.

 

“Driven by the steady growth of our life insurance business, our operating profit reached RMB126.4 million, with a year-over-year increase of 40.2%, which was in line with our prior expectations. Our net income per ADS grew by 31.0% year-over-year to RMB2.62.”

Results of Independent Review:

 

On May 21, 2019, the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Special Committee”) completed its review of certain allegations raised by short sellers.  The Special Committee concluded that the short sellers’ allegations that characterize the Company as a fraudulent business designed to enrich insiders through a series of related party and self-dealing transactions were unsubstantiated.  The short seller reports proved to contain baseless speculation and misleading and inaccurate allegations.  As a result of the investigation, to further improve the Company’s corporate governance, the Special Committee will recommend, and management will implement, a series of measures intended to improve the Company’s operational, compliance and financial processes and controls. 

 

As previously announced, the Special Committee is comprised of three independent directors of the Company, Mr. Allen Lueth, Mr. Stephen Markscheid and Mr. Mengbo Yin. The Special Committee retained Kirkland & Ellis International LLP (“Kirkland & Ellis”) to assist in the internal investigation. FTI Consulting (“FTI”) was retained as forensic accountants in its investigation. Kirkland & Ellis and FTI directly reported its findings to the Special Committee.

 

Financial Results for the First quarter of 2019

 

Total net revenues were RMB971.7 million (US$144.8 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 15.2% from RMB843.3 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

 

Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB859.2 million (US$128.0 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 27.7% from RMB673.0 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was mainly driven by the growth in first year commissions due to sales volume expansion and the growth in renewal commissions as a result of high persistency ratio. First year commissions increased 27.3% year-over-year to RMB670.2 million and renewal commissions increased 29.4% year-over-year to RMB189.0 million. Revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 88.4% of our total net revenues in the first quarter of 2019.

 

Net revenues for the P&C insurance business were RMB38.1 million (US$5.7 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 58.8% from RMB92.5 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the termination of cooperation between Baoxian.com and one of its major channel partners in June 2018. 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. The 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 3.9% of our total net revenues in the first quarter of 2019.

 

Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB74.4 million (US$11.1 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 4.4% from RMB77.8 million for the corresponding period in 2018. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 7.7% of our total net revenues in the first quarter of 2019.

uCosts of the life insurance business were RMB601.5 million (US$89.6 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 28.4% from RMB468.3 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was in line with the growth in sales. Costs incurred by the life insurance business accounted for 89.9% of our total commission costs in the first quarter of 2019.

 

uCosts of the P&C insurance business were RMB24.6 million (US$3.7 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 69.3% from RMB80.2 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease was in line with the decrease in sales. The costs of the P&C insurance business mainly represent commission costs incurred for business on Baoxian.com. Costs incurred by the P&C insurance business accounted for 3.7% of our total commission costs in the first quarter of 2019.

Selling expenses were RMB64.6 million (US$9.6 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 32.6% from RMB48.7 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to an increase of sales outlets in 2018.

Investment income was RMB36.8 million (US$5.5 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 11.2% from RMB33.1 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was mainly due to the investment income from certain one-year investment products which matured in the first quarter of 2019. The investment income represents yields from short-term investments in financial products which mainly consist of wealth management products issued by banks 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 RMB0.4 million (US$0.1 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 96.3% from RMB10.8 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The interest income in the first quarter of 2019 solely represented interest income from bank deposits while the interest income in the first quarter of 2018 was mainly contributed by a one-year loan to a third party, with 7.3% annual interest rate, which was fully settled in the third quarter of 2018.

 

Income tax expense was RMB42.9 million (US$6.4 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 2.1% from RMB43.8 million for the corresponding period in 2018. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2019 was 26.0% compared with 33.0% for the corresponding period in 2018. The decrease in effective tax rate was mainly due to the tax holiday enjoyed by one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries starting from the fourth quarter of 2018.

 

Share of income of affiliates was RMB25.4 million (US$3.8 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 37.3% from RMB40.5 million for the corresponding period in 2018, mainly attributable to a decrease of profits from CNFinance Holdings Limited due to the upgrade of its business model.

 

Net income was RMB147.7 million (US$22.0 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 14.0% from RMB129.6 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

 

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB147.3 million (US$21.9 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 13.1% from RMB130.2 million for the corresponding period in 2018.

6In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, “Leases (Topic 842)” and associated ASUs related to Topic 842, which requires organizations to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet for the rights and obligations created by those leases. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Topic 842, using the modified retrospective transition approach, applying the new standard to leases existing at the date of initial adoption, and prior periods were not restated. In addition, the Company elected to apply the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance which does not require reassessment of prior conclusions, lease classification and initial direct lease costs. Adoption of the new standard resulted in the recording of lease assets and liabilities of RMB182 million and RMB181 million respectively on January 1, 2019. The adoption of the new guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of income and consolidated statements of cash flows.
