LexinFintech Holdings Ltd. Reports Second Quarter 2023 Unaudited Financial Results
August 29, 2023 at 7:00 PM EDT

SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LexinFintech Holdings Ltd. (“Lexin” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: LX), a leading technology-empowered personal financial service enabler in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

“Total loan origination for the second quarter of 2023 reached RMB63.9 billion, beating the high end of our guidance which is RMB63.5 billion, representing a year-over-year growth of 30.1%. Total outstanding loan balance reached RMB114 billion with an increase of 31.8% year-over-year,” said Jay Wenjie Xiao, chairman and chief executive officer of Lexin. “In this increasingly uncertain world, we continued to unwaveringly undertake fundamental business principles that we believe in to enhance our capabilities with risk management as the top priority and better cater to our customer’s evolving needs. The second quarter of 2023 represented the fifth consecutive quarter of both operational and financial growth in our V-shaped turnaround, despite a slow macroeconomic recovery.”

“In the past quarter, we continued to step up our efforts in strengthening the holistic risk management system, accelerate to upgrade our customer to better quality segments and implementing a series of cost-effective initiatives we launched this year. All these endeavors generated tangible progress in achieving lower-pricing products, better customer base, improved asset quality and enhanced profitability. Considering the continued business turnaround momentum, our financial position has been further strengthened that not only offers strong support for our growth and innovations, but also allows us to increase returns to our shareholders through a semi-annual cash dividend policy. Looking ahead, we remain cautious about weakening consumption recovery in China and continued to take a prudent business approach for the rest of this year.” Mr. Xiao continued.

“In the second quarter, we delivered another healthy quarterly result and cruised along the V-shaped turnaround trajectory,” said Mr. James Zheng, chief financial officer of Lexin, “Total operating revenue for the second quarter was RMB3.1 billion, an increase of 26.6% year-over-year, and 2.4% quarter-on-quarter, and our net profit also grew to RMB356 million, an increase of 112% year-over-year and 8.6% quarter-on-quarter. Net profit margin increased to 11.6% from 6.9% in the second quarter of 2022 and 11.0% in the first quarter of 2023. It’s worth noting that we further enriched product supplies on our e-commerce platform and enhanced digital consumption experience for our customers especially during 618 shopping festival aiming to fully leverage the unique strength of Lexin consumption ecosystem. We are delighted to harvest a faster-than-expected GMV sequential growth of 31.6% on our e-commerce platform, which far exceeded the overall GMV growth across all our business lines. A fast-growing e-commerce business, better quality assets contributing from a growing share of high-quality customer segment and continued implementation of cost control and efficiency initiatives all boosted the growth of profitability this quarter. ”

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results:

Operating revenue increased by 26.6% from RMB2,413 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB3,056 million in the second quarter of 2023.

Credit facilitation service income increased by 48.6% from RMB1,438 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB2,138 million in the second quarter of 2023. The increase was driven by increases in loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented, guarantee income and financing income.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented increased by 41.7% from RMB667 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB946 million in the second quarter of 2023. The increase was primarily due to the significant increase in off-balance sheet loans originated under the credit-oriented model.

Guarantee income increased by 113% from RMB290 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB618 million in the second quarter of 2023. The increase was primarily driven by the increase in loan originations and the increase of outstanding balances in the off-balance sheet loans funded by certain institutional funding partners, which are accounted for under ASC 460, Guarantees.

Financing income increased by 19.4% from RMB481 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB574 million in the second quarter of 2023. The increase was primarily driven by the increase in the origination of on-balance sheet loans.

Tech-empowerment service income decreased by 10.2% from RMB436 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB392 million in the second quarter of 2023. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in APR of loans originated under the profit-sharing model within tech-empowerment service as compared to the second quarter of 2022.

Installment e-commerce platform service income decreased by 2.2% from RMB538 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB526 million in the second quarter of 2023.

Cost of sales decreased by 15.6% from RMB551 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB465 million in the second quarter of 2023. The decrease was primarily driven by the decrease in transaction volume from online direct sales in the second quarter of 2023.

Funding cost increased by 21.7% from RMB128 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB156 million in the second quarter of 2023, which was consistent with the increase in financing income.

Processing and servicing costs decreased by 5.8% from RMB474 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB446 million in the second quarter of 2023. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in risk management and collection expenses.

Provision for financing receivables was RMB146 million for the second quarter of 2023, as compared to RMB119 million for the second quarter of 2022. The credit losses reflect the most recent performance in relation to the Company’s on-balance sheet loans.

Provision for contract assets and receivables was RMB125 million in the second quarter of 2023, as compared to RMB130 million in the second quarter of 2022.

Provision for contingent guarantee liabilities was RMB722 million in the second quarter of 2023, as compared to RMB377 million in the second quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to the increase in loan origination of the off-balance sheet loans funded by certain institutional funding partners, which are accounted for under ASC 460, Guarantees.

Gross profit increased by 57.2% from RMB633 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB995 million in the second quarter of 2023.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 5.1% from RMB477 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB453 million in the second quarter of 2023, as a result of the decrease of salaries and personnel related costs, for the sales employees.

Research and development expenses decreased by 21.5% from RMB155 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB121 million in the second quarter of 2023, as a result of the Company’s improved efficiency.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 14.7% from RMB113 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB96.5 million in the second quarter of 2023, as a result of the Company’s expense control measures.

Change in fair value of financial guarantee derivatives and loans at fair value was a gain of RMB130 million in the second quarter of 2023, as compared to a gain of RMB305 million in the second quarter of 2022. The change in fair value was primarily driven by the fair value gains realized as a result of the release of guarantee obligation, partially offset by the re-measurement of the expected loss rates and changes in the balances of the underlying outstanding off-balance sheet loans as of June 30, 2023.

Income tax expense increased by 101% from RMB40.1 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB80.8 million in the second quarter of 2023. The increase in income tax expense was consistent with the increase in the income before income tax expense in the second quarter of 2023.

Net income increased by 112% from RMB167 million in the second quarter of 2022 to RMB356 million in the second quarter of 2023.

Recent Developments

Semi-Annual Dividend Policy
On August 22, 2023, the Company's board of directors (the "Board") approved a semi-annual cash dividend policy. Under the policy, the Company will declare and distribute a recurring cash dividend semi-annually, starting from the second fiscal quarter of 2023, at an amount equivalent to approximately 15% to 30% of the Company's net profit in the previous six-month period, or as otherwise authorized by the Board. The determination to make dividend distributions and the exact amount of such distributions in any particular semi-annual period will be based upon the Company’s operations and financial conditions, and other relevant factors, and subject to adjustment and determination by the Board.

Semi-Annual Dividend
The board of directors of the Company has approved a dividend of US$0.058 per ordinary share, or US$0.116 per ADS, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2023 in accordance with the Company’s dividend policy, which is expected to be paid on October 17, 2023 to shareholders of record (including holders of ADSs) as of the close of business on September 15, 2023 New York time.

Outlook
Based on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the current market conditions and the prudent business approach due to the weak consumption recovery, the company reaffirms the earlier guidance of annual GMV amount of RMB245-255 billion, which represents 20-25% year over year growth.

These estimates reflect the Company's current expectation, which is subject to change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement
In evaluating our business, we consider and use adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company, non-GAAP EBIT, adjusted net income per ordinary share and per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company, four non-GAAP measures, as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures 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 adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company as net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company excluding share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, and investment income/(loss) and we define non-GAAP EBIT as net income excluding income tax expense, share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, and investment income/(loss).

We present these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, and investment income/(loss). Non-GAAP EBIT, on the other hand, enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of income tax expense, share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, and investment income/(loss). We also believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company and non-GAAP EBIT is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, income tax expense, interest expense, net, and investment income/(loss) have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company and non-GAAP EBIT. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP financial information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

We compensate for these limitations by reconciling each of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

(3) Starting from the fourth quarter of 2022, we updated the descriptions of three categories of our revenue streams as Credit facilitation service income, Tech-empowerment service income, and Installment e-commerce platform service income, to provide more relevant and clear information. We also revised the revenue presentation in comparative periods to conform to the current classification.

Financing income was previously reported as “Interest and financial services income and other revenues” before the change of presentation.

Tech-empowerment service income was previously reported as “Technology-Driven Platform Services” before the change of presentation.

Installment e-commerce platform service income was previously reported as “New consumption-driven, location-based services” before the change of presentation.
