Mr. Tiezheng Li, Chief Executive Officer of FinVolution, commented, “We continued to grow our business across the board despite evolving macroeconomic challenges. Total transaction volume for full year 2023 reached RMB194.3 billion while total outstanding loan balance climbed to RMB67.4 billion, representing year-over-year increases of 10.8% and 4.3% respectively.

“Our international business grew exceptionally well in 2023, propelled by our effective strategy of pursuing sustained growth domestically in tandem with rapid growth overseas. International transaction volume for full-year 2023 soared to RMB7.85 billion and outstanding loan balance rose to RMB1.26 billion, representing increases of 84.7% and 57.5%, respectively. This accelerated growth drove international revenue to RMB2,136.9 million (US$301.0 million) for the full year 2023, up 85.9% year-over-year, representing 17.0% of total revenue,” concluded Mr. Li.

Mr. Jiayuan Xu, FinVolution’s Chief Financial Officer, continued, “Our strong full-year financial results speak for our outstanding strategic execution throughout 2023. Full-year net revenues increased to RMB12,547.4 million (US$1,767.3 million) and net profit reached RMB2,383.5 million (US$335.7 million), up 12.7% and 4.5%, respectively, year-over-year. Our total liquidity position as of December 31, 2023, stood at RMB7,930.1 million (US$1,116.9 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 12.3%.

“Moreover, we strove to continuously optimize shareholder returns through our capital return program. For full-year 2023, we deployed a total of approximately US$160.0 million in dividend distributions and share repurchases representing a capital return of 48.5% of the Company’s net income for fiscal year 2023, demonstrating our steadfast commitment to enhancing shareholder value,” concluded Mr. Xu.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 increased by 5.7% to RMB3,223.6 million (US$454.0 million) from RMB3,050.0 million for the same period of 2022, primarily due to the increase in guarantee income.

Loan facilitation service fees decreased by 8.4% to RMB1,107.4 million (US$156.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB1,208.6 million for the same period of 2022. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in service fee rates, partially offset by the increase in transaction volume. 

Post-facilitation service fees maintained relatively stable at RMB495.4 million (US$69.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB496.4 million for the same period of 2022, as the result of the increase in outstanding loans served by the Company and the rolling impact of deferred transaction fees.

Guarantee income increased by 37.7% to RMB1,267.5 million (US$178.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB920.6 million for the same period of 2022. This increase was primarily due to the increased outstanding loan balance of off-balance sheet loans, higher guarantee rates and the rolling impact of deferred guarantee income. The fair value of quality assurance commitment upon loan origination is released as guarantee income systematically over the term of the loans subject to quality assurance commitment. 

Net interest income decreased by 22.3% to RMB227.4 million (US$32.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, from RMB292.5 million for the same period of 2022, due to the decrease in loan volume and outstanding loan balances of on-balance sheet loans. 

Other revenue decreased by 4.6% to RMB125.8 million (US$17.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB131.8 million for the same period of 2022, primarily due to the disposal of a pilot-run business. 

Origination, servicing expenses and other costs of revenue increased by 9.1% to RMB563.1 million (US$79.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB516.2 million for the same period of 2022, primarily due to the increase in facilitation costs and loan collection expenses as a result of higher transaction volume. 

Sales and marketing expenses remained relatively stable at RMB491.4 million (US$69.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with RMB490.7 million for the same period of 2022, as we maintained our proactive efforts in acquiring better quality borrowers in both China and the international markets.

Research and development expenses decreased by 7.2% to RMB127.6 million (US$18.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB137.5 million for the same period of 2022, due to the increase in efficiency for technology development.

General and administrative expenses maintained relatively stable at RMB115.2 million (US$16.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB114.4 million for the same period of 2022 as a result of stable operating efficiency.

Provision for accounts receivable and contract assets decreased by 67.6% to RMB36.4 million (US$5.1 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB112.5 million for the same period of 2022, due to the decrease in provision from other third-party platforms. 

Provision for loans receivable decreased by 14.6% to RMB107.6 million (US$15.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, from RMB126.0 million for the same period of 2022, primarily due to the decrease in loan volume and outstanding loan balances of on-balance sheet loans, partially offset by the rise in delinquency rate.

Credit losses for quality assurance commitment increased by 35.6% to RMB1,269.5 million (US$178.8 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with RMB935.9 million for the same period of 2022. The increase was primarily due to the increases in loan volume and outstanding loan balances in both China and the international markets.

Operating profit decreased by 16.9% to RMB512.8 million (US$72.2 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB616.8 million for the same period of 2022.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income, which excludes share-based compensation expenses before tax, was RMB547.0 million (US$77.0 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, representing a decrease of 14.2% from RMB637.8 million for the same period of 2022.

Other income increased by 4.8% to RMB67.6 million (US$9.5 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023 from RMB64.5 million for the same period of 2022, mainly due to the additional gains from increased investment in investment products and interest income.

Income tax expense was RMB51.6 million (US$7.3 million) for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with RMB125.0 million for the same period of 2022. This decrease was mainly due to the decrease in pre-tax profit and the change in effective tax-rate in the fourth quarter.

Net revenue for 2023 increased by 12.7% to RMB12,547.4 million (US$1,767.3 million) from RMB11,134.2 million in 2022, primarily due to the increase in loan facilitation service fees, post facilitation service fees and the increase in guarantee income as a result of the increase in transaction volume.

Business Outlook

While the macroeconomic recovery continued to gain traction with pockets of improvement in the beginning of 2024, uncertainties persist in the markets in which we operate. The Company has observed encouraging signs of recovery and will continue to closely monitor macro conditions across our pan-Asian markets and remain prudent in our business operations. Given this backdrop, the Company currently expects its full-year 2024 transaction volume for the China market to be in the range of RMB195.7 billion to RMB205.0 billion, representing year-over-year growth of approximately 5.0% to 10.0%. At the same time, the Company expects full-year 2024 transaction volume for its international markets to be in the range of RMB9.4 billion to RMB11.0 billion, representing year-over-year growth of approximately 20.0% to 40.0%.

The above forecast is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company’s current preliminary views and expectations on market and operational conditions and the regulatory and operating environment, as well as customer and institutional partners’ demands, all of which are subject to change.
