Mr. Yinan Hu, chairman and chief executive officer of Fanhua, commented on the financial results of second quarter of 2022, “In the second quarter of 2022, as we continued executing on our ‘Professionalization, Career-based, Digitalization and Open Platform’ strategy and implemented a series of strategic initiatives, the efforts started to show fruitful results, with positive improvements across various operating metrics.”

“Our insurance business grew by 12.2% year-over-year to RMB2.9 billion in gross written premiums (“GWP”), of which our life insurance first year premiums (“FYP”) reached RMB615.7 million, up 43.7% year-over-year and 25% quarter-over-quarter. The growth was primarily driven by substantial increases in the number of high-performing agents and their per capita productivity, while we reduced the number of non-performing and low-performing agents. For instance, the number of “3-month 10K Premium Agents” who are defined as those contributing over RMB10,000 annualized premiums equivalent (“APE”) monthly for all three months during the quarter increased by 23.6% year-over-year with per capita productivity up 33.3% year-over-year, while the number of “100K Premium Agents” who are defined as those contributing over RMB100,000 APE during the quarter increased by 41.2% year-over-year with per capita productivity growing by 6.3% year-over-year. These are clear signs of the positive effects of our strategic focus on serving mid- to high-end customers and high-performing agents.”

“We delivered RMB31.0 million operating income in the second quarter of 2022, well exceeding our prior expectation, despite the disruption to agents’ offline activities and our claims adjusting business as a result of COVID-19 pandemic in certain regions, as well as our increased expenditures on digitalization and professionalization initiatives. The year-over-year decrease in operating income was mainly due to (i) a loss of RMB6.8 million within our claims adjusting segment due impacts of COVID-19 during the quarter, as compared to a profit of RMB3.5 million in the same period of 2021; (ii) an increase of investment in our Yuntong branches2 which correspondingly incurred a loss of RMB15.0 million during the second quarter of 2022; and (iii) our increased expenditure amounting to RMB10.3 million on refining our IT infrastructure to support digitalization of our operation and empower front-line operation of our agents. Although such investments may have increased our cost pressure, we believe they are necessary to strengthen our capabilities.”

“After over a year of implementation and continued refinement, our strategy is becoming clearer and more pragmatic, and has resulted in significant improvement of our brand image in our industry, further boosting the confidence of our staff and sales force.”

“For the second half of 2022, Fanhua will focus on pushing forward the following initiatives: (1) recruitment and training of high-performing agents, in particular 100K Premium Agents and Million-Dollar Roundtable3 members; (2) leveraging insurance trust services, healthcare and elderly care services to promote scenario-based marketing, fostering our differentiated competitive edge; and (3) further enhancing the standardized operation of the 3R (“Account Responsibility, Solution Responsibility, and Fulfillment Responsibility”) marketing model on our platform, to enable our agents to provide more professional and all-around services to their clients.”

“In the third quarter of 2022, although extrinsic factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the regulatory requirement for double-recording may continue to exert an impact on our business, Fanhua will continue to further implement our development strategy, and work to improve company value by grasping enormous market opportunities. While we expect to continue to invest in technology and training which may pose cost pressure in the near term and take time to come to fruition, the management is still confident in achieving positive growth with an operating profit of no less than RMB30 million.”

This press release contains statements of a forward-looking nature. These statements, including the statements relating to the Company’s future financial and operating results, are made under the “safe harbor” provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these forward-looking statements by terminology such as “will,” “expects,” “believes,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “estimates” and similar statements. Among other things, management’s quotations and the Business Outlook section contain forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections about Fanhua and the industry. Potential risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those relating to its ability to attract and retain productive agents, especially entrepreneurial agents, its ability to maintain existing and develop new business relationships with insurance companies, its ability to execute its growth strategy, its ability to adapt to the evolving regulatory environment in the Chinese insurance industry, its ability to compete effectively against its competitors, quarterly variations in its operating results caused by factors beyond its control and macroeconomic conditions in China, future development of COVID-19 outbreak and their potential impact on the sales of insurance products. Except as otherwise indicated, all information provided in this press release speaks as of the date hereof, and Fanhua undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent occurring events or circumstances, or changes in its expectations, except as may be required by law. Although Fanhua believes that the expectations expressed in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, it cannot assure you that its expectations will turn out to be correct, and investors are cautioned that actual results may differ materially from the anticipated results.

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 non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders, non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS, all of which are non-GAAP financial measures, as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. Non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders is defined as net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders before impairment on investment in an affiliate. Non-GAAP net margin is defined as non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP basic net income per ADS is defined as non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders divided by total weighted average number of ADSs of the Company outstanding during the period. Non-GAAP diluted net income per ADS is defined as non-GAAP net income attributable to the Company’s shareholders 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 impairment on investment in an affiliate. 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 GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” set forth at the end of this press release.
