Mr. Yinan Hu, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Due to the pricing rate change in traditional life insurance, China’s life insurance industry has witnessed substantial fluctuations in premium growth, with overall growth coming under pressure.”

He added, “In the face of challenges stemming from policy shifts, we are delighted that our various strategic initiatives have made commendable progress. The effective implementation of our established strategies has contributed to the resilience of our operations.

“We believe that although the changes in pricing rates and the impending new rule requiring consistency in commissions reported with the level actually paid may have short-term impact on the industry, in the long run, they will drive the industry towards more standardized and sustainable high-quality development.

“We anticipate that the industry will gradually transition from being primarily driven by products and fees to being driven by technology and services in the future. This shift will enhance the competitiveness of companies with innovative services and technological capabilities. The industry is likely to become more concentrated with large insurance intermediary companies transitioning towards platform-based operations, and current market challenges will drive more small and medium-sized intermediary firms to choose collaboration with major platforms to reduce costs and enhance service capabilities.

“For FANHUA, this trend presents significant opportunities for our platform-centric development which will accelerate our transformation from a sales-oriented company to a platform-centric one, and further foster the growth of our business scale and market share. We will also continue to strengthen collaborations with small and medium-sized insurance companies, creating greater value for them through technology and customer service, thereby securing more substantial value distribution.”

Ben Lin, co-chairman and chief strategy officer of FANHUA, commented: “The third quarter was a very exciting period for FANHUA with many significant developments. Firstly, together with Tencent Cloud, we hosted our inaugural Open Platform Day on September 25, 2023 and officially introduced our sales technology expertise to the broader market. We are pleased to say that following such event, we have received numerous enquiries from independent brokers and insurers respectively and have so far successfully signed up two independent brokers as our digital tenants.

“The second major development relate to our overseas expansion. On October 23, 2023, we announced the establishment of two non-wholly owned subsidiaries with Asia Insurance Co., Ltd., or Asia Insurance as a noncontrolling shareholder, which marked our expansion outside of mainland China. FANHUA will be the majority shareholder of both companies with a 60% equity interest in each. We are confident that by working closely with Asia Insurance we can extend our strategy of building quality independent financial distribution and technology-driven open platform to markets outside of mainland China.

“Thirdly, we have completed most of the IT integration with Zhongronghuijin ("ZRHJ"), which we acquired 57.73% equity interests in January 2023. Full completion of the integration is expected to take place over the fourth quarter and upon completion, we expect that ZRHJ will realize no less than RMB5.0 million in annual IT savings in 2024. This acquisition and its deliverable cost savings serve as strong evidence of the successful implementation of our acquisition strategy.

“Lastly, while the weak investment market environment over the quarters has impacted many of our listed insurance peers, FANHUA was able to report significant increase in net profit due to an unrealized holding gain on fair value change over an equity investment as a result of the Nasdaq listing of Cheche Group Inc., or Cheche, in September 2023. FANHUA currently holds a 2.8% equity interest in Cheche Group as part of our P&C disposal transaction with Cheche in 2017. We are very excited to see Cheche to have completed its going public process.

“Over the coming quarters, taking advantage of the opportunities presented by the regulatory changes, our strategic focus will remain on executing on our core strategies which include driving growth in our Open Platform and Digital Tenant and exploring value accretive consolidation opportunities while driving organic growth through enhancing the quality of our distribution team. In Hong Kong, we will continue to work with Asia Insurance to map out our business opportunities and build up our human resources in the two subsidiaries we have established.”

Open Platform and M&A Contributions over the Third Quarter of 2023

  • The number of platform professional users who used our Open Platform reached 791 as of September 30, 2023, generating RMB165.6 million in first year premiums for the third quarter of 2023 which accounted for 28.3% of our life insurance FYP;
  • 21.6% of our life insurance FYP and 21.3% of our net revenues for the life insurance business were generated from entities we acquired within the past 12 months.

Share Repurchase Program

On December 20, 2022, the Company’s board of directors announced a share repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase its American depositary shares, or ADSs, with an aggregate value of US$20 million from time to time. As of September 30, 2023, the Company had repurchased an aggregate of 495,459ADSs, at an average price of approximately US$7.9 per ADS for a total amount of approximately US$3.9 million under this share repurchase program.

Business Outlook and Guidance
We expect to deliver 50% year-over-year growth in life insurance first year premiums and 50% year-over-year growth in adjusted EBITDA2 for 2023.

This forecast is based on the current market conditions and reflects FANHUA’s preliminary estimate, which is subject to change caused by various uncertainties.

Analysis of our Financial Results for the Third Quarter of 2023

Revenues

Total net revenues were RMB634.6 million (US$86.9 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 1.6% from RMB624.7 million for the corresponding period in 2022.

  • Net revenues for agency business were RMB524.1 million (US$71.8 million) for the third quarter of 2023, which remained relatively stable compared to RMB522.7 million for the corresponding period in 2022. Total GWP increased by 22.8% year-over-year to RMB3,525.1 million, of which FYP grew by 10.1% year-over-year to RMB672.5 million while renewal premiums increased by 26.2% year-over-year to RMB2,852.6 million.
    • Net revenues for the life insurance business were RMB483.8 million (US$66.3million) for the third quarter of 2023, which remained relatively stable compared to RMB480.6 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The slight increase was a net result mainly due to (i) the business fluctuation caused by the pricing rate change to life insurance products from 3.5% to 3% effective on August 1, 2023 which caused a spike in new business sales in July and then followed by a slow-down in sales in August and September and (ii) contribution from newly acquired entities, partially offset by the decrease in renewal commission income as a result of the decreased portfolio based average renewal commission rate of renewal premiums collected, and to a lesser extent, due to changes in product mix.

      Net revenues generated from our life insurance business accounted for 76.2% of our total net revenues in the third quarter of 2023, as compared to 76.9% in the same period of 2022.
    • Net revenues for the non-life insurance business (formerly categorized as “property and casualty insurance business”) were RMB40.3 million (US$5.5 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing a decrease of 4.3% from RMB42.1 million for the corresponding period in 2022. Net revenues generated from the non-life insurance business accounted for 6.4% of our total net revenues in the third quarter of 2023, as compared to 6.8% in the same period of 2022.
  • Net revenues for the claims adjusting business were RMB110.5 million (US$15.1 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 8.3% from RMB102.0 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The increase was mainly due to business recovery after the pandemic. Net revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 17.4% of our total net revenues in the third quarter of 2023, as compared to 16.3% in the same period of 2022.

Gross profit

Total gross profit was RMB235.2 million (US$32.2 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 1.7% from RMB231.3 for the corresponding period in 2022. By product line, the results were:

  • Life insurance business recorded a gross profit of RMB182.0 million (US$24.9 million), as compared with RMB181.7 million for the third quarter of 2022. Gross margin for the period was 37.6%, as compared with 37.8% in the same period of 2022.
  • Non-life insurance business recorded a gross profit of RMB12.8 million (US$1.8 million), representing a decrease of 23.8% from RMB16.8 million for the third quarter of 2022. Gross margin for the period was 31.8%, as compared with 40.0% in the same period of 2022. The decrease in gross margin was mainly due to changes in product mix.
  • Claims adjusting business recorded a gross profit of RMB 40.4million (US$5.5 million), representing an increase of 23.2% from RMB32.8 million for the third quarter of 2022. Gross margin for the period was 36.6%, as compared with 32.1% in the same period of 2022.

Operating expenses

Selling expenses were RMB59.2 million (US$8.1 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing a decrease of 14.6% from RMB69.3 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The decrease was due to expenses savings from personnel optimization and decreased number of sales outlets, partially offset by the increase in sales training events and the recognition of RMB5.0 million (US$0.7 million) share-based compensation expenses related to shares options granted to Million-Dollar Roundtable Members, or MDRT, under the Company’s MDRT ("Million-Dollar Roundtable Members") Share Incentive Plan in the first quarter of 2023.

General and administrative expenses were RMB142.9 million (US$19.6 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 10.1% from RMB129.8 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The increase was mainly due to the expenses incurred by the acquired business which was consolidated since the first quarter of 2023 amounting to approximately RMB19.6 million (US$2.7million), partially offset by cost savings from personnel optimization and decrease in the number of branches since 2022.

As a result of the foregoing factors, we recorded operating income of RMB33.2 million (US$4.5 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 3.2% from RMB32.2 million for the corresponding period in 2022.

Operating margin was 5.2% for the third quarter of 2023, compared to 5.1% for the corresponding period in 2022.

Fair value change in an equity investment represents an unrealized holding gain of RMB164.3 million (US$22.5 million) in the third quarter of 2023, which was recognized based on the fair value of Cheche in which the Company owns 2.8% equity interests, following its listing in September 2023.

Investment income was RMB1.9 million (US$0.3 million) for the third quarter of 2023, as compared with RMB2.8 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The investment income in the third quarter of 2023 consisted of yields from short-term investments in financial products and is recognized when the investment matures or is disposed of.

Income tax expense was RMB16.1 million (US$2.2 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 87.2% from RMB8.6 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2023 was 9.1% compared with 20.2% for the corresponding period in 2022. The decrease of effective tax rate is mainly due to the recognition of a nontaxable unrealized holding gain of equity interest amounting to RMB164.3 million (US$22.5 million) in the third quarter of 2023.

Net income was RMB160.8 million (US$22.0 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 384.3% from RMB33.2 million for the corresponding period in 2022.

Net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders was RMB170.7million (US$23.4 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an increase of 382.6% from RMB35.4 million for the corresponding period in 2022.

Net margin was 26.9% for the third quarter of 2023, as compared to 5.7% for the corresponding period in 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA2 was RMB24.9 million (US$3.4 million) for the third quarter of 2023, representing an decrease of 32.0% as compared to RMB36.6 million for the corresponding period in 2022. The decrease was mainly due to a provision of expected credit loss on other receivables amounting to RMB18.5 million (US$2.5 million) for the third quarter of 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA margin3 was 3.9% for the third quarter of 2023, as compared to 5.9% for the corresponding period in 2022.

Basic and diluted net income per ADS were RMB3.18 (US$0.44) and RMB3.18 (US$0.44) for the third quarter of 2023, respectively, representing an increase of 381.8% and 381.8% from RMB0.66 and RMB0.66 for the corresponding period in 2022, respectively.

Basic4 and diluted5 adjusted EBITDA per ADS were RMB0.46 (US$0.06) and RMB0.46 (US$0.06) for the third quarter of 2023, representing a decrease of 32.4% and 32.4% from RMB0.68 and RMB0.68 for the corresponding period in 2022, respectively.

As of September 30, 2023, the Company had RMB1,498.4 million (US$205.4 million) in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

FANHUA’s Insurance Sales and Service Distribution Network:

  • As of September 30, 2023, excluding newly acquired entities, FANHUA’s distribution network consisted of 592 sales outlets in 23 provinces and 81 services outlets in 31 provinces as of September 30, 2023, compared with 697 sales outlets in 23 provinces and 100 services outlets in 31 provinces as of September 30, 2022. The decrease in the number of sales outlets reflected our focus on growing profitable branches, coupled with the challenging decisions to close those which were not yielding profits. The number of the Company's in-house claims adjustors was 2,215 as of September 30, 2023, compared with 2,221 as of September 30, 2022.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company’s consolidated financial results under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company also provides adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and basic and diluted adjusted EBITDA per ADS, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures, as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before income tax expense, share of income of affiliates, net of impairment, investment income, interest income, financial cost, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in an equity investment. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenues. Basic adjusted EBITDA per ADS is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total weighted average number of ADSs of the Company outstanding during the period. Diluted adjusted EBITDA per ADS is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total weighted average number of diluted ADSs of the Company outstanding during the period. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company’s performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect all items of income and expenses that affect the Company’s operations. Specifically, the Company’s non-GAAP measures exclude interest income, investment income, financial cost, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, share of income of affiliates, net of impairment, share-based compensation expenses and fair value change in an equity investment. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies, including peer companies. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures has limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation from, or as a substitute for analysis of, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and other interested persons to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned “Reconciliations of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin” set forth at the end of this press release.
