THIRD QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB684.5 million (US$96.2 million), a 24.7% decrease from the corresponding period in 2021, mainly due to decreases in one-time commissions and performance-based income. Net revenues decreased by 7.3% compared with the second quarter of 2022, mainly due to a decrease in sales of insurance products and partially offset by increases in recurring service fees and other service fees.

Other Businesses

Our other businesses segment mainly provides more comprehensive services and investment products to our clients.

Ms. Jingbo Wang, co-founder and CEO of Noah, said, "I am happy to report that we have received the acknowledgement from the Hong Kong Stock Exchange regarding our application of a voluntary conversion to dual-primary listing in Hong Kong, and we hope to complete the conversion before the end of this year. In the third quarter of 2022, the market remained challenging and volatile as we resumed our onsite client activities, and as a result, general and administration expenses increased quarter-on-quarter as expected, which led to the decrease in our non-GAAP net income both quarter-on-quarter and year-on-year. The transaction value of private secondary products grew 38.9% quarter-on-quarter, representing a recovery from the last quarter, while transaction value of mutual funds remained stable. Our total number of active clients grew 6.5% year-on-year and 76.0% quarter-on-quarter respectively. We see continued challenges from China’s prolonged COVID-zero policy and partial lockdowns in various cities, coupled with a slower growth of economy, and adjusted to a domestic and international ‘dual circulation’ business model, aiming to grow and strengthen our international operations in terms of staff, products and clients. Overseas revenue contribution grew from 21.6% in the second quarter of 2022 to 28.3% in the quarter and we hope to deliver further growth from our international businesses."

THIRD QUARTER 2022 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB684.5 million (US$96.2 million), a 24.7% decrease from the corresponding period in 2021, primarily attributable to decreased one-time commissions and performance based income, partially offset by increased other service fees.

Wealth Management Business

  • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB92.1 million (US$12.9 million), a 52.5% decrease year-on-year, primarily due to decreased transaction value in relation to private secondary products as well as insurance products compared with the third quarter of 2021.
  • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB306.6 million (US$43.1 million), a 21.6% decrease year-on-year.

  • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB18.1 million (US$2.5 million), a 52.1% decrease from the corresponding period of 2021, primarily due to less performance-based income from private secondary products.
  • Net revenues from other service fees for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB49.1 million (US$6.9 million), a 59.8% increase from the corresponding period in 2021, primarily due to more value-added services Noah offers to its high net worth clients.

Asset Management Business

  • Net revenues from one-time commissions for the third quarter of 2022 was RMB7.8 million (US$1.1 million), a 63.3% decrease year-on-year due to fewer investment products that invest in private equity investments sold compared with the third quarter of 2021.
  • Net revenues from recurring service fees for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB183.0 million (US$25.7million), a 4.1% increase from the corresponding period in 2021, due to an increase in the amount of private equity investments managed by Gopher.
  • Net revenues from performance-based income for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB9.5 million (US$1.3 million), a 78.5% decrease year-on-year, primarily due to a decrease in performance-based income from real estate investments and offshore private equity investments managed by Gopher compared with the third quarter of 2021.

Other Businesses

  • Net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were RMB18.2 million (US$2.6 million), compared with RMB14.0 million for the corresponding period in 2021, due to more value added services provided.

UPDATE ON CREDIT FUNDS

On November 1, 2022, the Company provided an update on the status of the legal proceedings related to certain credit funds managed by Shanghai Gopher Asset Management Co., Ltd (the "Shanghai Gopher").

As the Company previously disclosed on June 21, June 29 and July 6, 2022 and August 25, 2020, certain credit funds (the "Camsing Credit Funds") managed by Shanghai Gopher had invested in supply chain account receivables (the "Camsing Accounts Receivables") with respect to the sale of computer, consumer electronics and communication products by affiliates (the "Sellers") of Camsing International Holding Limited (the "Camsing") as underlying investable assets to a buyer (the "Buyer"). Certain companies and individuals in connection with such supply chain account receivables were later suspected to commit fraudulent activities (the "Camsing Incident"). Shanghai Gopher reported such suspected fraudulent activities to relevant PRC governmental authorities, initiated legal proceedings against the Sellers, the Buyer and relevant guarantors, and has been assisting the PRC governmental authorities with their investigations in connection with the Camsing Incident.

On November 1, 2022, the Shanghai No.2 Intermediate People’s Court (the "Court") entered an initial judgment on the criminal case of Camsing Incident, pursuant to which the Court convicted the controlling shareholder of the Camsing to life imprisonment for contract fraud, among other crimes, and the treasurer of Camsing to 17 years and six months’ imprisonment for contract fraud, among other crimes. Other defendants in the criminal proceeding were respectively sentenced to imprisonment for a definite term for contract fraud. To the Company’s knowledge, the controlling shareholder of the Camsing and other defendants in the criminal proceeding have appealed the above initial judgment. Subsequently, this case will be in the process of second instance and heard by the Shanghai High People’s Court.

The Company will continue to closely monitor and evaluate any future development of the legal proceedings in connection with the Camsing Incident and provide further updates as appropriate.

2022 OUTLOOK

We expect to see continued challenges from the rate hikes from the Federal Reserve, sporadic lockdowns in China due to its prolonged COVID-zero policy, as well as the volatile public market. Considering the impact of these factors on clients’ investment sentiments, the Company revised its estimated non-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders for the full year 2022 from a range of RMB1.45 billion to RMB1.55 billion as previously published, to a range of RMB1.0 billion to RMB1.1 billion. This estimate reflects management’s current business outlook and is subject to change.

As previously announced, we have received acknowledgement from the Hong Kong Stock Exchange regarding our application for a voluntary conversion to dual-primary listing in Hong Kong, which is expected to be completed before the end of 2022. To comply with the applicable requirements under the Hong Kong Listing Rules and in line with the general market practice for companies with primary listings in both the United States and Hong Kong, the Company will no longer publish its annual forecast after the aforementioned conversion to a dual-primary listing in Hong Kong.

DISCUSSION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES        

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures excluding the effects of all forms of share-based compensation, share-based settlement expenses and net of tax impact, if any. See "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" at the end of this press release.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The financial results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP and reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be prepared differently from and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

When evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the periods presented, management reviewed the foregoing non-GAAP net income attributable to Noah shareholders and per diluted ADS and non-GAAP net margin attributable to Noah shareholders to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company’s management believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to its results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management.
