ETC

SHANGHAI, Aug. 20, 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 second quarter of 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Total revenues were RMB946.7 million (US$146.6 million), a 245.5% increase from RMB274.1 million in the same period of 2020, meeting the Company’s previous guidance range. The increase was mainly driven by the increased amounts of both financing transactions the Company facilitated and car trading transactions in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Car trading transactions revenues were RMB522.5 million (US$80.9 million), or 55.2% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Automotive financing facilitation revenues were RMB303.3 million (US$47.0 million), a 111.2% increase from RMB143.6 million in the same period of 2020.
  • After-market services facilitation revenues were RMB51.9 million (US$8.0 million), compared to RMB52.5 million in the same period of 2020.
  • The amount of financing transactions the Company facilitated in the second quarter of 2021 was RMB7,789.7 million (US$1,206.5 million). The total outstanding balance of financing transactions the Company facilitated was RMB48,637.8 million (US$7,533.0 million) as of June 30, 2021.
  • M1+ and M3+ overdue ratios for all financing transactions that remained outstanding and were facilitated by the Company were 1.35% and 0.69 %, respectively, as of June 30, 2021, compared to 1.23% and 0.54%, respectively, as of March 31, 2021.
  • The number of dealers covered by the Company was 47,740 as of June 30, 2021, compared to 47,017 as of March 31, 2021.

Mr. Jiayuan Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Cango, commented, "We entered the second quarter with a focus on navigating major challenges primarily associated with the global chip shortage. We are pleased with our second quarter performance, and thanks to solid progress in our car trading transactions business, we delivered a 245.5% year-over-year growth in total revenues, meeting our previous guidance range. The ongoing chip supply shortage, which has slowed down production and consumption in the entire auto industry, impacted our business to a certain extent and we expect the impact to linger in the second half of 2021. However, we remain dedicated to advancing key elements of our strategy and believe our solid business fundamentals give us considerable flexibility to navigate uncertain and stressful times. In late May, we launched our B2B service platform ‘Cango Haoche’ integrating car information with transactions, logistics, finance and insurance to directly address pain points for car dealers in the lower-tier markets. In addition, we introduced an updated service account of ‘Cango Cheshenghuo’ on WeChat also in the second quarter, offering consumers a one-stop service covering purchases, usage and maintenance of cars. With ‘Cango Haoche’ and ‘Cango Cheshenghuo,’ we have empowered B-end car dealers and served C-end car owners, further enhancing the bond between dealers, users and us."

"Looking ahead, we expect the impact of the supply chain-related challenges in the auto market to remain unresolved in the near term. However, we will closely monitor the situation and adapt accordingly, while staying true to our original goals and upholding our commitment to facilitating easy and enjoyable car purchase experiences for our consumers," Mr. Lin concluded.

Mr. Yongyi Zhang, Chief Financial Officer of Cango, stated, "Our second quarter financial performance was in line with our expectations. Total revenues came in at RMB946.7 million, more than tripling from a year ago. We also recorded a net income of RMB557.7 million in the second quarter. While uncertainty stemming from global chip supply chain disruptions are ongoing, we remain committed to improving our operating efficiency while continually investing in the business to deliver more value to our dealers, partners and users. We fully believe that this will enable us to continue creating value for our shareholders well into the future."

As a percentage of total revenues, cost of revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was 73.7% compared to 37.5% in the same period of 2020, and the change was primarily due to an increase in the amount of car trading transactions.

INCOME FROM OPERATIONS

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2021 was RMB13.2 million (US$2.1 million), compared to RMB66.7 million in the same period of 2020.

FAIR VALUE CHANGE OF EQUITY INVESTMENT

Fair value change of equity investment in the second quarter of 2021 was a gain of RMB603.4 million (US$93.5 million) compared to nil in the same period of 2020. The gain in the second quarter of 2021 is mainly due to the investment in Li Auto. As of June 30, 2021, Cango held 8,000,000 American Depositary Shares of Li Auto. Each American Depositary Share of Li Auto represents two Class A ordinary shares of Li Auto.

NET INCOME

Primarily due to the fair value change of the Company’s investment in Li Auto, net income in the second quarter of 2021 was RMB557.7 million (US$86.4 million). Non-GAAP adjusted net income in the second quarter of 2021 was RMB578.3 million (US$89.6 million). Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes the impact of share-based compensation expenses. For further information, see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measure."

NET INCOME PER ADS

Basic and diluted net income per American Depositary Share (ADS) in the second quarter of 2021 were RMB3.85 (US$0.60) and RMB3.75 (US$0.58). Non-GAAP adjusted basic and diluted net income per ADS in the second quarter of 2021 were RMB3.99 (US$0.62) and RMB3.89 (US$0.60). Each ADS represents two Class A ordinary shares of the Company.

BALANCE SHEET

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2021, the Company expects total revenues to be between RMB700 million and RMB750 million. This forecast reflects the Company’s current and preliminary views on the market and operational conditions, which are subject to change.

The Company’s investment in Li Auto and the change in fair value of investment due to the price volatility of the stock may have a significant impact on the Company’s third quarter of 2021 financial results.

Share Repurchase Program

Pursuant to the share repurchase program announced on March 2, 2021, we had repurchased 5,397,207 American depositary shares ("ADSs") with cash in the aggregate amount of approximately US$48.4 million up to July 31, 2021.

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.
