Mr. YongSuk Cho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lufax, commented, "The third quarter was a challenging time for our company and for our industry as a whole. As our core client base of small business owners continued to feel an outsized impact from a deteriorating macro environment, we faced rising credit impairment losses and credit enhancement costs, weighing on our profitability. In contrast, the regulatory environment is becoming increasingly stabilized; oversight has been normalized and there is an absence of significant outstanding issues for our company. While credit quality deterioration advanced across the board in the third quarter, we witnessed growing differences in economic resilience and significant divergence in credit performance by region. Taking Shanghai for example, the C-M3 ratio for general unsecured loans spiked to 2.3% in Q2 2022, but within a short period of time after re-opening, quickly returned to the pre-lockdown level of 0.5% in Q3 2022, demonstrating strong resilience. On average, the C-M3 ratio for top performing regions, which mainly consist of cities and regions with strong economic foundations improved by 1 basis point in the third quarter compared to the second quarter, while the average C-M3 ratio for average performing regions and less desirable performing regions deteriorated by 13 and 20 basis points, respectively, during the same period. Today, about two-thirds of our existing business is in cities and regions where we believe the economic foundations are stronger and will underpin and catalyze our recovery from current downturn. This is clearly a challenge for us but we are confident in our ability to execute. We will adjust our business strategies by deepening our focus on well-rated small business owners, in more resilient cities, with increased reliance on our direct sales force channel. In the nearer-term, we expect this adjusted strategy will generate new loan facilitation volumes at approximately two-thirds of the volumes we have generated in recent years. We will also use this business re-prioritization to continue to upgrade our technology, operations, and risk management with the objective of strengthening our long-term market leadership in the small business owner segment. Fortified by our competitive advantages, our fine-tuned strategy, our pro-regulation business model, our strong balance sheet and long-term partnerships with financial institutions, we will navigate through this difficult period."

Mr. Gregory Gibb, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Lufax, commented, "The deterioration in credit quality during the third quarter negatively impacted our results, with new loan volumes declining and credit impairment losses rising. Overall profitability has also been negatively impacted by higher insurance premium.  In light of the challenges, we have already tightened customer selection and new business initiated in the last several quarters has delivered better and more resilient performance.  We will continue to take the path of strengthening collection on existing vintages and building up a more sustainable and profitable new portfolio, while at the same time we will refine our channel management and optimize our direct sales force to be more nimble, productive and effective in customer targeting and selection. Though this will result in reduced new business volumes and gross revenues in the medium-term, new business should generate better results as compared to the historical loan vintages as a whole and drive a U-shaped recovery in our financial performance. Facing the uncertainties ahead, we will continue strengthening our operating capabilities and our partnerships with financial institutions. We have recently launched a new small business owner ecosystem, LuDianTong, an open-platform design which we populated with digital operating tools and industry-focused content for SBOs to operate their businesses more effectively. We are also continuing to develop LuJinTong, which helps banks with strong risk capabilities acquire borrowers directly through dispersed sourcing agents nation-wide.  In addition, we have also gained 16 new bank partners under our risk-sharing model compared to a year ago. Looking ahead, our bottom-line recovery will be driven by the evolving credit performance and run-off speed of our historical vintages, and our prioritized new businesses’ growth rate. Finally, we would like to thank our shareholders for their continuous support to our business. In October, we distributed our first half 2022 dividends of USD0.17 per ADS, and we will continue to deliver value to our shareholders."

Mr. David Choy, Chief Financial Officer of Lufax, commented, "Faced with worsening macroeconomic headwinds, we dedicated ourselves to building a more sustainable business model and improving operational resilience. As a result, we recorded RMB13.2 billion in total income for the third quarter and reduced our operating-related expenses by 12.7% year over year. Our balance sheet remains strong, with our cash at bank balance increasing to RMB45.8 billion. In addition, liquid assets[6] maturing in 90 days or less amounted to 46.5 billion as of the end of September 2022. Our guarantee company’s net capital stood at 47.8 billion and the leverage was stable at 2.1x, compared to a regulatory allowance of 10x. Against a challenging macro backdrop, this performance demonstrates the efficacy of our business model and gives us confidence as we strive to deliver long term growth and sustainable value for our shareholders."

  • Technology platform-based income decreased by 30.3% to RMB6,672 million (US$938 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB9,567 million in the same period of 2021 due to a decrease in new loan sales, client assets, and service fees.
    – Retail credit facilitation service fees decreased by 30.7% to RMB6,308 million (US$887 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB9,100 million in the same period of 2021, mainly due to a decrease in new loan sales and a lower take rate, and changes in the Company’s business model that resulted in more income being recognized in net interest income and guarantee income.
    – Wealth management transaction and service fees decreased by 22.1% to RMB364 million (US$51 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB467 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly driven by the decrease in fees generated from the Company’s current products, partially offset by the increase in fees generated from platform services[7].
  • Net interest income increased by 21.5% to RMB4,618 million (US$649 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB3,802 million in the same period of 2021, mainly as a result of 1) the Company’s increased usage of trust funding channels that were consolidated by the Company (as of September 30, 2022, the Company’s on-balance sheet loans accounted for 36.9% of its total loan balance under management, as compared to 31.2% as of September 30, 2021), and 2) an increase in the volume of new consumer finance loans.
  • Guarantee income increased by 44.1% to RMB1,863 million (US$262 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB1,293 million in the same period of 2021, primarily due to the increase in the loans for which the Company bore credit risk.
  • Other income was negative RMB129 million (negative US$18 million) in the third quarter of 2022 compared to other income of RMB997 million in the same period of 2021, majority of the decreases were due to 1) a refund of account management fees to the Company’s primary credit enhancement partner as a result of worse-than-expected collection performance, and 2) the narrowing down of service scope and change of fee structure that the Company provided and charged to its primary credit enhancement partner since this quarter.
  • Investment income decreased to RMB168 million (US$24 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB266 million in the same period of 2021, mainly due to a decrease in investment assets.

TOTAL EXPENSES

Total expenses increased by 11.5% to RMB11,082 million (US$1,558 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB9,936 million in the same period of 2021. This increase was mainly driven by credit impairment losses, since credit impairment losses increased by 137.7% to RMB3,956 million (US$556 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB1,664 million in the same period of 2021. Total expenses excluding credit impairment losses, asset impairment losses, finance costs, and other (gains)/losses decreased by 12.7% to RMB6,746 million (US$948 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB7,730 million in the same period of 2021.

    – Borrower acquisition expenses decreased by 20.5% to RMB2,030 million (US$285 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB2,553 million in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to decreased new loan sales and reductions in commissions.
    – Investor acquisition and retention expenses decreased by 62.8% to RMB81 million (US$11 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB218 million in the same period of 2021, mostly due to the decrease in sales of current products.

  • Credit impairment losses increased by 137.7% to RMB3,956 million (US$556 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB1,664 million in the same period of 2021, mainly driven by 1) the increase of provision and indemnity loss driven by increased risk exposure, and 2) the change in credit performance due to the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Asset impairment losses decreased by 83.4% to RMB68 million (US$10 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB410 million in the same period of 2021, mainly due to the higher base of impairment loss in the third quarter of 2021 driven by impairment loss of intangible assets and goodwill.
  • Finance costs increased by 82.1% to RMB306 million (US$43 million) in the third quarter of 2022 from RMB168 million in the same period of 2021, mainly due to an increase in interest expense.
