"We fully support the Chinese Government's ongoing efforts to clean up the spot commodities trading market," commented Mr. Wenbin Chen, Chairman and CEO of Yintech. "While our business will be affected in the short-term, we believe the industry will come out leaner, cleaner and better regulated and we expect to come out in a stronger competitive position. We have a leading market position in the Shanghai Gold Exchange, which is regulated by the People's Bank of China and is the only national-level spot commodity exchange in China. We have always been committed to maintaining the highest operational standards within the industry and I believe our business on the Shanghai Gold Exchange still has huge potential to grow. Looking forward, our strategy is to become a provider of diversified investment and trading services to individual investors in China. Our core strength lies in our deep understanding of, and extensive experience in serving, Chinese individual investors, which can be easily leveraged for other investment and trading products. We have identified a few promising areas and are in advanced stages of preparation for launching new products in the coming quarters."

"Despite the impact from fewer trading days and reduced trading activity during the Chinese New Year holiday, we continued to hit new revenue and net income records during the quarter which demonstrates our strong operational capabilities," commented Mr. Jingbo Wang, CFO of Yintech. "The Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange recently terminated trading of all products on the exchange while the Tianjin Precious Metals Exchange reduced its leverage ratios by roughly half. Both of these changes will impact our customer trading volumes and revenues during the second quarter. We nevertheless remain optimistic in maintaining healthy profit margins during the second quarter due to cost saving initiatives on advertising and variable employee compensation."

First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter were RMB1,104.6 million (US$160.5 million), an increase of 174.1% from RMB402.9 million in the same quarter last year and an increase of 4.0% from RMB1,061.7 million in the previous quarter. The increases were mainly due to the increase in net commissions and fees.

Net commissions and fees for the quarter were RMB1,053.5 million (US$153.1 million), an increase of 172.1% from RMB387.2 million in the same quarter last year and an increase of 5.8% from RMB995.3 million in the previous quarter. Customer trading volume was RMB1,389.0 billion (US$201.8 billion) during the quarter, an increase of 348.9% from RMB309.4 billion in the same quarter last year and a slight decrease of 2.1% from the previous quarter. The slight sequential decrease was primarily due to the fewer number of trading days and reduced trading activity during the Chinese New Year holiday.

Effective fee rate (representing net commissions and fees as a percentage of customer trading volume) for the quarter was 0.076%, compared with 0.125% in the same quarter last year and 0.070% in the previous quarter.

Expenses for the quarter were RMB630.4 million (US$91.6 million), an increase of 176.6% from RMB227.9 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 7.9% from RMB684.3 million in the previous quarter. The year-on-year increase was primarily attributable to increases in employee compensation and benefits and advertising and promotion expenses due to the Company's growing business.

Net income for the quarter was RMB376.1 million (US$54.6 million), an increase of 149.1% from RMB151.0 million in the same quarter last year and an increase of 11.4% from RMB337.7 million in the previous quarter.

Net income attributable to Yintech for the quarter was RMB381.3 million (US$55.4 million), an increase of 155.4% from RMB149.3 million in the same quarter last year and an increase of 12.7% from RMB338.3 million in the previous quarter.

Diluted earnings per ADS for the quarter were RMB5.14 (US$0.75), compared with diluted earnings per ADS of RMB2.81 in the same quarter last year and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB4.62 in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Yintech for the quarter was RMB397.4 million (US$57.7 million), an increase of 146.7% from RMB161.1 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 18.9% from RMB489.9 million in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS for the quarter were RMB5.36 (US$0.78), compared with non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS of RMB3.03 in the same quarter last year and non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS of RMB6.69 in the previous quarter.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had cash of RMB685.4 million (US$99.6 million), compared with RMB1,541.2 million as of December 31, 2016. The decrease was mainly due to the net purchase of RMB907.9 million in available-for-sale investments such as wealth management products during the quarter and the 2016 annual dividend of RMB385.1 million (US$55.9 million), which was partially offset by net income of RMB376.1 million for the quarter.

As of December 31, 2016, Total shareholders' equity of Yintech was RMB3,335.0 million (US$484.5 million), compared with RMB3,316.0 million as of December 31, 2015.

Business Outlook

Based on the information available as of the date of this press release, Yintech provides the following outlook, which reflects the Company's current and preliminary view and is subject to change:

2017 Second Quarter Guidance

  • Customer trading volume will be in the range of RMB950 billion to RMB1,050 billion.
  • Revenues will be in the range of RMB600 million to RMB650 million.

Recent Developments

On April 24, 2017, the Company was notified by the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange that it had adjusted its spot commodity trading business in light of new market developments, and in particular, it would terminate the trading of all the current products on the exchange on May 6, 2017. As a result, the Company no longer generates revenue from its business carried out on the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange after May 6, 2017. It is unclear whether or when the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange will introduce trading of new products in the future or, if so, what the new products will be.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the effects of all forms of share-based compensation, as well as amortization of intangible assets in relation to the acquisition of Gold Master. The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest GAAP measures is set forth in the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results" below.

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 measure 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 non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS results reflecting adjustments to exclude the impact of share-based compensation as well as amortization of intangible assets in relation to the acquisition of Gold Master to supplement U.S. GAAP financial data. As such, the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP net income and the diluted non-GAAP income per ADS provides important supplemental information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations in a manner consistent with that used by management. Pursuant to U.S. GAAP, the Company recognized significant amounts of expenses for the restricted shares and share options, as well as amortization of intangible assets in relation to the acquisition of Gold Master in the periods presented. The Company utilized the non-GAAP financial results to make financial results comparable period to period and to better understand its historical business operations.

Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars were made at the exchange rate of RMB6.8832 to US$1.00, as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board on March 31, 2017. No representation is intended to imply that these Renminbi amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into U.S. dollar amounts at such rate, or at any other rate.
