“In the past year, in spite of the challenging conditions presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Lexin was able to meet our guidance and complete our loan origination targets. Our registered users, scale, and revenues continued to grow, and our credit risk is continuing to stabilize.” said Mr. Jay Wenjie Xiao, Lexin’s chairman and chief executive officer. “In particular, our ‘To Bank’ technology service capabilities continue to lead the industry. In the fourth quarter, loan originations generated under our pure technology service model represented over 50% of our new loan originations, improving the overall quality of our growth. This year, Lexin will aim to achieve even faster growth with higher quality, and based on the strong performance in the first quarter and the improving asset quality, we are raising our full year loan origination target up to RMB250 billion.”

“Even our core financial technology business continues to grow, we will concurrently develop a second area of growth. At the beginning of this year, Lexin introduced our new Yuehui, Maiya, and Xiaofeihao products, to expand the potential of our business, and to expand the customers that we serve from 120 million to the potential 500 million in the new consumption cohort. We currently estimate that our Maiya product will achieve GMV of RMB50 million for March.” Mr. Xiao added. “The scale of our potential business will extend to cover China’s USD4 trillion new consumption market. As China becomes the world’s largest consumption market, Lexin will utilize the customers, consumption scenarios, and operational capabilities that we have accumulated over the many years, to fully capture the potential of this historical opportunity, and to realize ever stronger growth from the expanding new consumption market.”

We performed strongly in the last quarter of 2020 and we are currently seeing strong positive growth trends for 2021. As a result, we are raising our full year loan origination guidance for 2021, as we now expect total loan originations for 2021 to be between RMB240 and RMB250 billion,” said Mr. Craig Yan Zeng, Lexin’s chief financial officer, “In addition, the continued efforts made on improving asset quality are expected to enable a strong recovery in our profitability for the current fiscal year.

“Our credit performance and credit quality continues to improve for new loan originations and is within our expectations,” said Mr. Yang Qiao, Lexin’s vice president, “Our vintage charge-off rates7 is at approximately 4.0%, and our 90 day+ delinquency rate was 1.95% as of December, 2020. In addition, our first payment default rate (30 day+)8 for new loan originations have been at below 1% for the past 5 months now, and our one-month delinquencies for all our key past vintages have peak. As a result, we expect our credit performance to continue to improve in the future.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results:

Operating revenue decreased from RMB3,148 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB3,033 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease in operating revenue was due to a decrease in online direct sales and services income, partially offset by the increase in credit-oriented services income and platform-based services income for the quarter, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform, and the change of the presentation of guarantee income along with the adoption of ASC 326. Before the adoption of ASC 326, gain or loss related to financial guarantee not accounted for as derivatives was recorded in one combined financial statement line item within “Gain on guarantee liabilities, net.” After the adoption of ASC 326, the gain released from the guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460 is recorded as “Guarantee income” as a separate financial statement line item within revenue and the relevant credit losses are recorded as “Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee.”

Online direct sales decreased by 60.6% from RMB1,085 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB428 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in the number of e-commerce orders during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Credit-oriented services income increased by 3.2% from RMB1,789 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB1,846 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily resulted from the increase of RMB339 million due to change of presentation of guarantee income as aforementioned and the increase of interest and financial services income and other revenues, partially offset by the decrease in loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented decreased by 32.4% from RMB1,530 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB1,034 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease was primarily due to the Company’s business strategy shift to increase the loan originations under platform-based model.

Guarantee income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was RMB339 million. The guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460 are released from the underlying risk, i.e., as the underlying loan is repaid by the borrower or when the lender is compensated in the event of a borrower’s default.

Interest and financial services income and other revenues increased by 82.3% from RMB259 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB473 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, which was consistent with the increase in the origination of on-balance sheet loans in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Platform-based services income increased by 232% from RMB216 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB717 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily contributed by an increase in the loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based increased by 251% from RMB194 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB679 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the origination of off-balance sheet loans under the performance-based model within platform-based services, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform.

Cost of sales decreased by 60.4% from RMB1,092 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB432 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, which is consistent with the decrease of online direct sales revenue.

Funding cost increased by 9.7% from RMB128 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB141 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, which was consistent with the increase of the funding debts to fund the on-balance sheet loans.

Processing and servicing cost increased by 81.8% from RMB210 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB382 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to an increase in fees to third-party insurance companies and guarantee companies, an increase in risk management expenses, and an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

Provision for credit losses of financing receivables decreased by 31.2% from RMB219 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB151 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The credit losses have reflected the most recent performance in relation to the Company’s on-balance sheet loans and the Company has continued to implement prudent credit assessment and risk management policies and procedures.

Provision for credit losses of contract assets and receivables increased by 794% from RMB20.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB187 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was mainly due to the significant increase in off-balance sheet loans originated as a result of the continuing growth of our business, earlier recognition of credit losses under ASC 326 as well as negative impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020.

Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee was RMB220 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. After the adoption of ASC 326 on January 1, 2020, a separate contingent liability in full amount determined using current expected credit losses (“CECL”) lifetime methodology is accounted for in addition to and separately from the guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460, and relevant credit losses are recorded as “Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee.” Before the adoption of ASC 326, gain or loss related to such financial guarantee was recorded in one combined financial statement line item within “Gain on guarantee liabilities, net.”

Gross profit increased by 2.9% from RMB1,478 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB1,520 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase in the gross profit is primarily due to the significant increase in platform-based services income and interest and financial services income and other revenues, and partially offset by the increase in processing and servicing cost, provision for credit losses of contract assets and receivables and provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 34.0% from RMB520 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB343 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in online advertising cost.

Page 4 of 17


 

Research and development expenses decreased by 6.1% from RMB101 million of 2019 to RMB95.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in salaries and personnel related costs.

General and administrative expenses increased by 4.8% from RMB120 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 to RMB125 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This increase was primarily due to an increase in rental expenses.

Change in fair value of financial guarantee derivatives was a loss of RMB326 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, as compared to a loss of RMB258 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The loss was primarily due to the re-measurement of the expected loss rates of the underlying outstanding off-balance sheet loans at the balance sheet date.

Change in fair value of loans at fair value was a loss of RMB35.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Starting from the second quarter of 2020, for the loans we acquired/purchased from the relevant funding partners during the period, we account for them using fair value option pursuant to ASC 825, Financial Instruments, and record them as “Loans at fair value”. Changes in fair value of these loans are reported net and recorded as “Change in fair value of loans at fair value”.

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 was RMB94.2 million, as compared to income tax expense of RMB96.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease of the income tax expense was consistent with the decrease of the taxable income from the same period of 2019.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was RMB510 million, representing a decrease of 1.6% from RMB518 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was RMB603 million, representing an increase of 3.1% from RMB585 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results:

Operating revenue increased from RMB10,604 million in 2019 to RMB11,645 million in 2020. This increase in operating revenue was due to an increase in credit-oriented services income and platform-based services income for the year, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform, and the change of the presentation of guarantee income along with the adoption of ASC 326, partially offset by the decrease in online direct sales and services income. Before the adoption of ASC 326, gain or loss related to financial guarantee not accounted for as derivatives was recorded in one combined financial statement line item within “Gain on guarantee liabilities, net.” After the adoption of ASC 326, the gain released from the guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460 is recorded as “Guarantee income” as a separate financial statement line item within revenue and the relevant credit losses are recorded as “Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee.”

Online direct sales decreased by 47.5% from RMB3,624 million in 2019 to RMB1,901million in 2020. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in the number of e-commerce orders during 2020.

Credit-oriented services income increased by 26.3% from RMB6.0 billion in 2019 to RMB7.5 billion in 2020. The increase was primarily resulted from the increase of RMB2,320 million due to change of presentation of guarantee income as aforementioned, partially offset by the decrease in loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented decreased by 21.3% from RMB4,812 million in 2019 to RMB3,787 million in 2020. This decrease was primarily due to the Company’s business strategy shift to increase the loan originations under platform-based model.

Platform-based services income increased by 150% from RMB816 million in 2019 to RMB2,037 million in 2020.

Loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based increased by 198% from RMB649 million in 2019 to RMB1,931 million in 2020. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the origination of off-balance sheet loans under the performance-based model within platform-based services, driven by continuing increases in the number of active users on our platform.

This increase was primarily due to an increase in fees to third-party insurance companies and guarantee companies, an increase in fees to third-party payment platforms, an increase in risk management expenses, an increase in credit assessment cost, and an increase in salaries and personnel related costs.

Provision for credit losses of financing receivables increased by 10.0% from RMB709 million in 2019 to RMB779 million in 2020.

Regulatory update

In February 2021, the China Banking Regulatory Commission, the People’s Bank of China, the Ministry of Education, the Office of the Central Cyberspace Affairs Commission and the Ministry of Public Security jointly issued the Notice on Further Strengthening the Regulation and Management Work of Internet Consumer Loan for College Students. The notice provides that the micro-credit companies are prohibited to provide internet consumer loans to college students. In addition, it sets forth several requirements on the banking financial institutions participating in internet consumer loans for college students, including without limitation: (i) the banking financial institutions and its cooperative institution shall not conduct online precision marketing aimed at college students, and shall complete necessary filings and reports with relevant authorities before offline promotion in campus; (ii) the banking financial institutions shall strictly check credit qualifications and the identities of college students and their use of loans, conduct comprehensive credit assessment, and receive a written confirmation from the second repayment sources (such as parents, guardians, or other administrator of the college students) that they agree such internet consumer loan provided to such college student and they will guarantee the repayment of such internet consumer loan; and (iii) all credit information of internet consumer loan for college students shall be submitted to

Page 7 of 17


 

the financial credit information database in a timely, complete and accurate manner, and college students who do not agree to submit such credit information shall not be extended the loan.

In 2017, as directed by the relevant regulatory authorities, our micro-credit loan company had already stopped providing services to college students. We will also recommend new customers based on any new instructions provided by our financial institution partners. In addition, we will continue to assess and strengthen our customer identification capabilities, to better comply with the requests of our financial institution partners.

Management changes

On March 18, 2021, Lexin appointed Mr. Ryan Huanian Liu as the Company’s new senior vice president responsible for new business initiatives. Previously, Mr. Liu was Lexin’s chief risk officer in charge of the company’s risk control operations. In addition, Lexin would also like to welcome Mr. Yang Qiao to the Lexin team as a new vice president responsible for risk control. Prior to joining Lexin, Mr. Qiao held senior positions with JD Finance, Discover, and ZRobot.

Outlook

Based on Lexin’s preliminary assessment of the current market conditions, the Company now expects total loan originations for fiscal year 2021 to be between RMB240 billion and RMB250 billion, representing an upward adjustment of up to RMB30 billion from the previously stated guidance of RMB220 to RMB230 billion disclosed in the Company’s January 2021 press release. This is Lexin’s current and preliminary view, which is subject to changes and uncertainties.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Statement

In evaluating our business, we consider and use adjusted net income, non-GAAP EBIT, adjusted net income per ordinary share and per ADS, 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 as net income excluding share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, investment-related impairment and investment loss/(income) and we define non-GAAP EBIT as net income excluding income tax expense, share-based compensation expenses, interest expense, net, investment-related impairment, and investment loss/(income).

We present these non-GAAP financial measures because it is used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, interest expense associated with convertible notes, investment-related impairment and investment loss/(income). 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, investment-related impairment and investment loss/(income). 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 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-related impairment and investment loss/(income) have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income 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 the non-GAAP financial measure 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.

We have adopted ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326) effective January 1, 2020 using the modified retrospective method.

Before the adoption of ASC 326, the guarantee liabilities subsequent to initial recognition were measured at the greater of the amount determined based on ASC 460 and the amount determined under ASC 450. An excess liability was recorded when the aggregate contingent liabilities under ASC 450 exceeded the balance of guarantee liabilities determined under ASC 460.

After the adoption of ASC 326, a contingent liability in full amount determined using CECL lifetime methodology of the guarantee (i.e., the contingent aspect recorded as “Contingent guarantee liabilities”) shall be accounted for in addition to and separately from the guarantee liability (i.e., the noncontingent aspect recorded as “Deferred guarantee income”) accounted for under ASC 460.

Starting from the second quarter of 2020, we report revenue streams in three categories—online direct sales and services income, credit-oriented services income and platform-based services income, to provide more relevant information. We also revised the comparative period presentation to conform to current period classification.

In providing credit-oriented services, we originate on-balance sheet loans, or facilitate the loan origination of off-balance loans where we also provide guarantee services. Consequently, we take all credit risks of borrowers in

Page 13 of 17


 

respect of on-balance sheet loans, and off-balance sheet loans through the relevant guarantee arrangements. By nature, revenue earned from off-balance sheet loans where we also provide guarantee services is recorded as “Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented” and “Guarantee income,” and interest income and other fees from on-balance sheet loans is recorded as “Interest and financial services income and other revenues.”

In providing platform-based services, we do not provide guarantee services and take no credit risks of borrowers in respect of principal and interests due to the lenders for off-balance sheet loans we facilitate. We either charge the service fees for loan facilitation and servicing at predetermined rates based on the performance of the underlying off-balance sheet loans, which we refer to as performance-based model, or charge the service fees at predetermined rates of amount of loan originations upon successful matching of borrowing requests, which we refer to as volume-based model.

Revenue from “Loan facilitation and servicing fees-credit oriented,” “Loan facilitation and servicing fees-performance based” and “Loan facilitation and servicing fees-volume based” were previously reported as one combined financial statement line item as “Loan facilitation and servicing fees” before the change of presentation.

For online direct sales and services income, we report the premium membership fees for our membership packages as “Membership services,” and the commission fee earned from third-party sellers for the online marketplace services we rendered and other services revenue as “Other services” within “Online direct sales and services income.” The premium membership fees, commission fee earned from third-party sellers and other services revenue were previously reported as “Services and others” within “Online direct sales and services income” before the change of presentation.

We have adopted ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326) effective January 1, 2020 using the modified retrospective method.

Before the adoption of ASC 326, gain or loss related to guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460 was recorded in one combined financial statement line item within “Gain on guarantee liabilities, net.”

After the adoption of ASC 326, the gain released from the guarantee liabilities accounted for under ASC 460 is recorded as a separate financial statement line item within revenue as “Guarantee income” and the relevant credit losses of guarantee are recorded as “Provision for credit losses of contingent liabilities of guarantee.”
