2021-11-23 07:11 684

SHANGHAI, Nov. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cango Inc. (NYSE: CANG) ("Cango" or the "Company"), a leading automotive transaction service platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Total revenues were RMB800.6 million (US$124.3 million), an 84.1% increase from RMB434.9 million in the same period of 2020, outperforming the high end of the Company's guidance by 6.8%. The increase was mainly driven by the increased amounts of both financing transactions the Company facilitated and car trading transactions in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Car trading transactions revenues were RMB429.2 million (US$66.6 million), or 53.6% of total revenues in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Automotive financing facilitation revenues were RMB266.5 million (US$41.4 million), a 15.8% increase from RMB230.2 million in the same period of 2020.
  • The amount of financing transactions the Company facilitated in the third quarter of 2021 was RMB6,210.7 million (US$963.9 million). The total outstanding balance of financing transactions the Company facilitated was RMB47,955.2 million (US$7,442.5 million) as of September 30, 2021.
  • M1+ and M3+ overdue ratios for all financing transactions that remained outstanding and were facilitated by the Company were 1.58% and 0.76%, respectively, as of September 30, 2021, compared to 1.35% and 0.69%, respectively, as of June 30, 2021.
  • The number of dealers covered by the Company was 47,718 as of September 30, 2021, compared to 47,740 as of June 30, 2021.

Mr. Jiayuan Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Cango, commented, "As expected, the industry headwinds created by the global chip shortage continued to impact our business in the third quarter. Since the end of the second quarter, we have been proactively responding to industry changes, and delivered third quarter total revenues of RMB800.6 million, above our guidance.

Market disruptions had a particularly significant impact on our automotive financing facilitation business, leading to a decrease in the number of financing transactions the Company facilitated compared to the previous quarter. To address these challenges, we optimized our sales team's organizational structure and focused on stimulating each salesperson's output while advancing our expansion into the high-end segment of this market and exploring used car financing facilitation. We are also excited about our achievements in our car trading transactions business which is now serving as an important growth driver. 'Cango Haoche,' our B2B service platform providing one-stop transaction, logistics, finance, insurance and other auto-related services, has been widely recognized by dealers, garnering over 1.5 million total views since its launch in the second quarter. Moreover, our after-market services facilitation business made solid progress as we continued to establish cooperation with new energy vehicle manufacturers including Li Auto and HiPhi."

"Looking ahead, we expect the chip shortage-related upheaval in the auto market to linger for some time. Given the pervasiveness of the disruption, we remain cautious with respect to industry recovery. Nevertheless, we will continue to strengthen our platform and synergies between businesses in response to market changes, as well as capitalize on the promising opportunities we see in the new energy vehicle sector," Mr. Lin concluded.

Mr. Yongyi Zhang, Chief Financial Officer of Cango, stated, "Despite the ongoing uncertainty due to the global chip shortage, our third quarter performance demonstrates our business model's flexibility and resilience. Total revenues were RMB800.6 million, coming in above our guidance. We are in a healthy operational and financial position and we remain confident in our ability to navigate the industry turmoil. Looking ahead, we will continue to carefully manage our cost structure while improving operating efficiency and profitability, creating value for our shareholders in the long run."

Each American Depositary Share of Li Auto represents two Class A ordinary shares of Li Auto.

NET LOSS

Definition of Overdue Ratios

The Company defines "M1+ overdue ratio" as (i) exposure at risk relating to financing transactions for which any installment payment is 30 to 179 calendar days past due as of a specified date, divided by (ii) exposure at risk relating to all financing transactions which remain outstanding as of such date, excluding amounts of outstanding principal that are 180 calendar days or more past due.

The Company defines "M3+ overdue ratio" as (i) exposure at risk relating to financing transactions for which any installment payment is 90 to 179 calendar days past due as of a specified date, divided by (ii) exposure at risk relating to all financing transactions which remain outstanding as of such date, excluding amounts of outstanding principal that are 180 calendar days or more past due.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measure

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses Non-GAAP adjusted net income, a non-GAAP measure, as a supplemental measure to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company defines Non-GAAP adjusted net income as net income excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure because it is used by the management to evaluate the operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP adjusted net income enables the management to assess the Company's operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges. The Company also believes that the use of the non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using Non-GAAP adjusted net income is that it does not reflect all items of expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in the business and are not reflected in the presentation of Non-GAAP adjusted net income. Further, the non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliations of Cango's non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure are included at the end of this press release.
