BEIJING, Nov. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Yiren Digital Ltd. (NYSE: YRD) ("Yiren Digital" or the "Company"), a leading digital personal financial management platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2022.

First Half 2022 Operational Highlights

Holistic Wealth Business

  • Cumulative number of clients served reached 2,970,548 as of June 30, 2022, representing an increase of 17.0% from 2,538,656 as of June 30, 2021.
  • Number of active clients[1] was 578,562 as of June 30, 2022, representing an increase of 50.1% from 385,536 as of June 30, 2021. The increase was driven by our expanding insurance brokerage business and Yiren Select initiatives.
  • Total client assets[2] reached RMB23,379.7 million (US$3,490.5 million) as of June 30, 2022, representing an increase of 59.5% from RMB14,660.4 million as of June 30, 2021.
  • Sales volume of investment products amounted to RMB10,918.6 million (US$1,630.1 million) in the first half of 2022, which remained stable compared to RMB11,166.7 million in the first half of 2021.

Credit-tech Business

  • Total loans facilitated in the first half of 2022 reached RMB9.5 billion (US$1.4 billion), representing a decrease of 6.3% from RMB10.2 billion in the first half of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to the strategic optimization of our product structure and the pandemic resurgence in the first half of 2022.
  • Cumulative number of borrowers served reached 6,514,111 as of June 30, 2022, representing an increase of 17.2% compared to 5,558,085 as of June 30, 2021.
  • Number of borrowers served in the first half of 2022 was 827,767 representing an increase of 28.0% from 646,486 in the first half of 2021. The increase was due to our improved services, enriched membership benefits as well as enhanced customer engagement.
  • Outstanding balance of performing loans facilitated reached RMB10,613.1 million (US$1,584.5 million) as of June 30, 2022, representing a decrease of 15.4% from RMB12,543.7 million as of June 30, 2021. The decrease was due to the scale back of our offline business as part of our business optimization process coupled with impacts from the pandemic resurgence.

[1] Active clients refer to those who have made at least one investment through our holistic wealth ecosystem or have client assets with us above zero in the past twelve months.

[2] Client assets refer to the outstanding balance of client asset generated through our platforms, where an asset is counted towards the outstanding balance for so long as it continues to be held by the clients who acquired it through our platform.

Consumption-Driven Services

  • Total gross merchandise volume generated through our e-commerce platform and 'Yiren Select' channel reached RMB146.1 million (US$21.8 million) in the first half of 2022.

"We are pleased to deliver a resilient half-year result with continued improvement in profitability amid the pandemic resurgence and lockdowns. As the industry continues to evolve, we are in full-swing to optimize our product and revenue structure while improving bottom-line margins, reinforcing our positioning as a comprehensive personal financial management platform." said Mr. Ning Tang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yiren Digital.

"On our wealth business, Hexiang Insurance is growing into an essential revenue contributor with its revenue reaching RMB344 million in the first half of 2022, accounting for 23% of total revenue, compared to only 14% in the same period last year. In the first half of this year, Hexiang achieved total premiums of RMB1.6 billion, representing a 96% increase year-on-year, marking a sharp contrast to the industry's single digit growth rate. We delivered these results by focusing on efforts to increase agent productivity as well as by leveraging our advantages in product exclusiveness and customization. A key focus for Hexiang this year has been on building an elite agent team, which consists of senior professionals from different sectors, including former lawyers, IT engineers and college lecturers. These agents bring with them powerful networks of high-net-worth individuals of whom they can tap into and up-sell and cross-sell different insurance products based on each individual's comprehensive asset-allocation needs."

"On our credit-tech business, we have restructured our loan portfolio over the past few quarters, with small revolving and SME loans accounting for 100% of total loans originated in the first half of 2022, compared to 55% in the same period last year. Moreover, for our offline secured loan business that bore higher operating cost and was more vulnerable during the pandemic, we strategically scaled back our offline secured loans starting back in the third quarter last year and have officially terminated this product as of February this year. Given that our new product structure is more operationally efficient and better aligns with regulatory direction on lowering borrowing costs, we are confident that it will allow us to better scale and sustain under an evolving environment. Meanwhile, we tightened risk policies amid a challenging macro backdrop. For example, for our SME loans business, we proactively decreased approval rates through raising application requirements for business owners, such as increasing the minimum threshold for revenue levels as well as requiring our channel partners to do initial screening and filtering of potential borrowers. Specifically, in the second quarter of 2022, our overall FPD30+ rate was 0.46%, representing a historical low and compared to 0.66% from last quarter, reflecting the improved asset quality of our new loans."

"We delivered a strong profit of RMB439 million in the first half of this year, representing a 15% increase year over year despite the temporary impacts on business scale from our product restructuring and pandemic resurgence. This reflects a net income margin of 29.2% for the first half of 2022, up 12.0 percentage points from the same period last year as we continue to enhance our cost efficiencies." said Ms. Na Mei, Chief Financial Officer of Yiren Digital. "Turning to our balance sheet, we maintained a substantial balance sheet with RMB5.3 billion in total shareholders' equity as of June 30, 2022. Earlier this year, our board approved a US$20 million share repurchase program, demonstrating our strong commitment to providing greater support for our shareholders as well as our unwavering confidence in the company's long-term potential."

First Half 2022 Financial Results

Total net revenue in the first half of 2022 was RMB1,505.9 million (US$224.8 million), representing a decrease of 32.3% from RMB2,225.0 million in the first half of 2021. Particularly, in the first half of 2022, revenue from credit-tech business was RMB827.2 million (US$123.5 million), representing a decrease of 50.6% from RMB1,674.4 million in the same period of 2021.

[3] "Adjusted EBITDA" is a non-GAAP financial measure. For more information on this non-GAAP financial measure, please see the section of "Operating Highlights and Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures" and the table captioned "Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA" set forth at the end of this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses several non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide useful information about our core operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by our management in our financial and operational decision-making. The presentation of these 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. Other companies, including peer companies in the industry, may calculate these non-GAAP measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure. The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating our performance. See "Operating Highlights and Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP measures" at the end of this press release.
