Mr. Ji Guangheng, Chairman of Lufax, commented, “We maintained our steady and healthy growth momentum during the third quarter, augmented our regulatory compliance and corporate governance initiatives, rewarded our shareholders through additional share repurchases, and completely phased out our legacy P2P products. Because our direct and indirect client exposure to the property sector is very minor, and because we predominately serve small and micro business owners who are resilient and play a crucial role in China’s economic development, the recent macroeconomic and property market downturn has not impacted our business much. By leveraging the competitive advantages born out of our unique business model and by maintaining frequent and constructive dialogs with regulators at all levels through all available channels, we have been able to deftly navigate through the constantly changing regulatory environment, preemptively adjust our operation strategies, and proactively align our business directions with regulatory trends. Looking ahead, we will continue to uphold our commitment to maintaining full regulatory compliance, providing compassionate and inclusive financial services, establishing ourselves as a role model of corporate governance among overseas-listed Chinese companies, and generating increasing value for our shareholders and our society.”

Mr. Gregory Gibb, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Lufax, commented, “We delivered another strong quarter of revenue and profit growth in the third quarter despite regulatory changes and economic slowdown. During the quarter, we successfully sustained our revenue take rates and net profit margins. Also, we grew our O2O direct sales force primarily serving small business owners to around 64,000 in the third quarter from 59,000 at the end of the second quarter, and improved their overall productivity by 4% quarter on quarter. As a result of our focus on small business owners and our diverse client base, we have not detected any sign of credit deterioration in our secured or unsecured loan facilitation portfolios. While we have observed increasing regulatory clarity, and although we no longer anticipate any additional major changes in regulations, we remain vigilant in our compliance efforts. The leverage ratio of our guarantee companies nationwide was under 3X as of the end of the third quarter, even though they share credit risk on all new loans facilitated. Also, with a strong cash position and an abundant capital reserve, we are well positioned to preempt any potential rectification requirements whenever necessary. In addition, we improved our shareholder return on equity through a newly announced cash dividend as a manifestation of our confidence in strong cash flow and business outlook. We continue to plough investment into empowering our salesforce with technology, deepening our deployment of AI capabilities, and expanding our product line functionality. By sharing our technological knowhow with our partners, we aim to increase our market reach, enhance our productivity, and improve our cost efficiency. ”

Mr. James Zheng, Chief Financial Officer of Lufax, commented, “We achieved double-digit growth in both revenue and net profit, as our total income increased by 21.8% to RMB15.9 billion and our net profit increased by 90.8% to RMB4.1 billion year over year. Our solid financial performance in the face of the regulatory uncertainty and economic slowdown showcases our execution capabilities on several fronts. First, we continued to maintain stable unit economics despite loan balance APR declines to 23.1% in third quarter from 26.6% a year ago by leveraging our diverse funding sources and relentless sales and marketing efficiency gains. Second, we sustained growth in our overall loan volume by optimizing our business mix, as our new loan sales for the retail credit business increased by 16.2% to RMB171.7 billion during the third quarter. Third, we continued to refine our risk-sharing business model and stabilize our asset quality. Finally, we improved the take rate of our wealth management segment through product mix realignment, achieving an increase of 12.3 basis points over the previous quarter. As of September 30, 2021, our total equity had reached RMB93 billion, and we had approximately RMB47 billion in liquid assets9 maturing in 90 days or less. We are confident that we will maintain a solid performance and continue to drive growth in the remainder of 2021 and beyond.”

  • Technology platform-based income decreased by 3.5% to RMB9,567 million (US$1,485 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB9,910 million in the same period of 2020 due to the decrease in retail credit facilitation service fees, and wealth management transaction and service fees.
    • Retail credit facilitation service fees decreased by 3.4% to RMB9,100 million (US$1,412 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB9,420 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to a change in revenue mix driven by the evolution of the Company’s risk-sharing business model.
    • Wealth management transaction and service fees decreased by 4.7% to RMB467 million (US$72 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB490 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly driven by the run-off of legacy products and partially offset by increase in fees generated from the Company’s current products.
  • Net interest income increased by 57.2% to RMB3,802 million (US$590 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB2,419 million in the same period of 2020, mainly as a result of the Company’s increased usage of trust funding channels that are consolidated by the Company. As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s on-balance sheet loans accounted for 31.2% of its total loan balance under management as compared to 18.4% as of September 30, 2020.
  • Guarantee income increased by 639% to RMB1,293 million (US$201 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB175 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase in the loans for which the Company bears credit risk.
  • Other income increased by 144% to RMB997 million (US$155 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB409 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the increase of account management fees, collections, and other value-added service fees charged to the Company’s credit enhancement partners as part of the retail credit facilitation process.
  • Investment income increased by 149% to RMB266 million (US$41 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB107 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase of investment asset and return.

TOTAL EXPENSES

Total expenses increased by 5.1% to RMB9,936 million (US$1,542 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB9,455 million in the same period of 2020.

  • Sales and marketing expenses increased by 7.0% to RMB4,609 million (US$715 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB4,309 million in the same period of 2020.
    • Borrower acquisition expenses decreased by 8.5% to RMB2,553 million (US$396 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB2,790 million in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to increased sales productivity and decreased sales commissions.
    • Investor acquisition and retention expenses increased by 10.1% to RMB218 million (US$34 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB198 million in the same period of 2020 mainly due to the increase in marketing efforts to attract and retain investors.
    • General sales and marketing expenses increased by 39.2% to RMB1,839 million (US$285 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB1,321 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to an increase in sales cost and the lower base in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of the social security relief during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • General and administrative expenses increased by 46.0% to RMB937 million (US$145 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB642 million in the same period of 2020. This increase was mainly due to an increase in accrued bonus driven by better performance, the lower base in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of the social security relief during the COVID-19 outbreak, and the Company’s headcount expansion in the third quarter of 2021 to support its new business development efforts, which included the development of the Company’s consumer finance business.
  • Operation and servicing expenses increased by 6.3% to RMB1,660 million (US$258 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB1,562 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the increase of trust plan management expenses, which resulted from the increase in consolidated trust plans.
  • Technology and analytics expenses increased by 8.7% to RMB524 million (US$81 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB482 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to the Company’s ongoing investments in technology research and development.
  • Credit impairment losses increased by 74.8% to RMB1,664 million (US$258 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB952 million in the same period of 2020, due to the increase in the proportion of credit risk born by the Company as a result of its continued migration to a risk-sharing model while the credit quality indicators continued to stabilize and in some cases improve substantially from one year previously.
  • Asset impairment losses increased to RMB410 million (US$64 million) in the third quarter of 2021 due to impairment loss of intangible assets and goodwill.
  • Finance costs decreased by 89.8% to RMB168 million (US$26 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB1,652 million in the same period of 2020, mainly due to a non-recurring expense of RMB1,326 million recognized in September 2020 in relation to the Company’s C-round convertible notes restructuring and a decrease in the balance of convertible bonds and the increase in interest income resulting from the increase in deposits.
  • Other gains decreased to RMB36 million (US$6 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB144 million in the same period of 2020.

NET PROFIT

Net profit increased by 90.8% to RMB4,115 million (US$639 million) in the third quarter of 2021 from RMB2,157 million in the same period of 2020, driven by the aforementioned factors. Net profit increased by 18.1% if compared to Non-IFRS adjusted net profit in the third quarter of 2020, which excludes the non-recurring expense recognized in relation to the Company’s C-round convertible notes restructuring.

EARNINGS PER ADS

Basic and diluted earnings per American Depositary Share (“ADS”) were RMB1.76 (US$0.27) and RMB1.66 (US$0.26), respectively, in the third quarter of 2021.

BALANCE SHEET

The Company had RMB30,548 million (US$4,741 million) in cash at bank as of September 30, 2021, as compared to RMB24,159 million as of December 31, 2020.

The Company expects to announce the dividend amount for the 2021 fiscal year after the disclosure of its fourth quarter 2021 results. Whether to make dividend distributions and the exact amount of such distributions in any particular year will be based upon the Company’s operations and earnings, cash flow, financial condition and other relevant factors, and subject to adjustment and determination by the board of directors.

1Please refer to “UNAUDITED RECONCILIATION OF IFRS AND NON-IFRS RESULTS” for reconciliation between IFRS and non-IFRS metrics.

2The take rate of retail credit facilitation business is calculated by dividing the aggregated amount of retail credit facilitation service fee, net interest income, guarantee income and the penalty fees and account management fees by the average outstanding balance of loans facilitated for each period.

3High-quality borrowers refer to G1-G3 borrowers. The Company groups its qualified borrowers into eight risk levels, with G1 representing the lowest risk and G8 representing the highest risk among qualified borrowers. A borrower’s risk level is determined based on two primary considerations. The First is credit risk score, modeled using statistical techniques and based on the records of the Credit Reference Center of the People’s Bank of China and the borrower’s prior records such as repayment, delinquency and application histories. The other consideration takes into account the customer’s assets, such as residential property, vehicle and insurance policies. Borrowers with higher credit risk scores and better assets will be assigned a lower risk level.

4Flow rate estimates the percentage of current loans that will become non-performing at the end of three months, and is defined as the product of (i) the loan balance that is overdue from 1 to 29 days as a percentage of the total current loan balance of the previous month, (ii) the loan balance that is overdue from 30 to 59 days as a percentage of the loan balance that was overdue from 1 to 29 days in the previous month, and (iii) the loan balance that is overdue from 60 to 89 days as a percentage of the loan balance that was overdue from 30 days to 59 days in the previous month. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from flow rate estimation.

5DPD 30+ delinquency rate refers to the outstanding balance of loans for which any payment is 30 to 179 calendar days past due divided by the outstanding balance of loans. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from calculation.

6DPD 90+ delinquency rate refers to the outstanding balance of loans for which any payment is 90 to 179 calendar days past due divided by the outstanding balance of loans. Loans from legacy products and consumer finance subsidiary are excluded from calculation.

7Legacy products of the wealth management business refer to a variety of products and related services that the Company has historically offered but no longer offers, primarily due to shifts in strategy and regulatory requirements. Legacy products are primarily comprised of certain types of structured alternative products originated from financial institutions and peer-to-peer platforms.

8The take rate for the wealth management business is calculated by dividing total wealth management transaction and service fees for current products by average client assets in the Company’s current products.

9The liquid assets consist of Cash at bank, Financial assets at amortized cost, Financial assets purchased under reverse repurchase agreements and Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss with a maturity of 90 days or less as of September 30, 2021.
