"During the quarter, we faced the greatest challenge since our inception in 2011," commented Mr. Wenbin Chen, Chairman and CEO of Yintech. "The termination of trading on the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange and the suspension of trading on the Tianjin Precious Metals Exchange resulted in the loss of a major portion of our revenue and customer base. It remains unclear if or when the suspension of our business on the Tianjin Exchange will be lifted."

"As mentioned last quarter, we have been developing new businesses and exploring new directions. We expanded our commodities trading business from the Shanghai Gold Exchange with the launch of a number of mobile apps for commodities futures trading which provides a new revenue stream. We also began providing securities services to individual customers which include a securities advisory business conducted through our licensed subsidiary and a securities information platform operated by our joint venture with SINA Corporation. In addition, we are preparing for the launch of a brokerage business for trading overseas stocks, as well as an asset management business."

"We strongly believe that Yintech's core strength lies in our deep understanding of, and extensive experience in serving, Chinese individual investors. In the past, we mainly focused on spot commodities trading which is a relatively high risk trading product, but have steadily expanded our portfolio of services into medium risk products such as securities, and low risk products such as asset management products. These new products will likely face a more transparent but also tougher regulatory environment. We are confident that as long as we maintain our high operational and compliance standards, these new businesses will allow us to emerge a stronger, more diversified and resilient company in the long-term."

Mr. Jingbo Wang, CFO of Yintech, added, "While customer trading volume and revenues were materially impacted by the termination of trading on the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange and the suspension of trading on the Tianjin Precious Metals Exchange, we were able to maintain a healthy net profit margin thanks to the cost control measures we implemented. Our new commodities futures trading and securities services businesses began to generate revenues in June 2017 and are ramping up quickly. Excluding the Guangdong and Tianjin businesses, both our top and bottom lines have improved since June 2017, a trend we expect to continue in the coming quarters. During this period of transition, our Board of Directors authorized a US$30 million share repurchase program, which we believe demonstrates our strong commitment to protect and preserve shareholder value over the long-term."

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter were RMB569.9 million (US$84.1 million), an increase of 12.3% from RMB507.4 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 48.4% from RMB1,104.6 million in the previous quarter. The sequential decrease was mainly due to the decrease in net commissions and fees.

Net commissions and fees for the quarter were RMB520.5 million (US$76.8 million), an increase of 12.2% from RMB463.8 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 50.6% from RMB1,053.5 million in the previous quarter.

Starting during the second quarter of 2017, the Company will begin breaking down net commissions and fees into two separate revenue segments: commodities trading and securities services. Commodities trading segment comprises of commissions and fees earned from customer trading of spot and futures commodities contracts. Securities services segment comprises of commissions and fees from providing securities advisory services and securities information platform services.

Net commissions and fees from commodities trading for the quarter were RMB516.0 million (US$76.1 million). Customer trading volume was RMB888.0 billion (US$131.0 billion) during the quarter, an increase of 114.3% from RMB414.3 billion in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 36.1% from the previous quarter. The sequential decrease was primarily due to the termination of the Company's business carried out on the Guangdong Precious Metals Exchange and the suspension of the Company's business carried out on the Tianjin Precious Metals Exchange in May and June 2017, respectively.

Net commissions and fees from securities services for the quarter were RMB4.5 million (US$0.7 million).

Effective fee rate (representing net commissions and fees from commodities trading business as a percentage of customer trading volume) for the quarter was 0.058%, compared with 0.112% in the same quarter last year and 0.076% in the previous quarter.

Expenses for the quarter were RMB445.3 million (US$65.7 million), an increase of 60.5% from RMB277.5 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 29.4% from RMB630.4 million in the previous quarter. The sequential decrease was primarily attributable to a reduction in employee compensation and benefits as well as advertising and promotional expenses.

Net income for the quarter was RMB88.0 million (US$13.0 million), a decrease of 56.4% from RMB201.8 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 76.6% from RMB376.1 million in the previous quarter.

Net income attributable to Yintech for the quarter was RMB85.4 million (US$12.6 million), a decrease of 57.5% from RMB201.1 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 77.6% from RMB381.3 million in the previous quarter.

Diluted earnings per ADS for the quarter were RMB1.16 (US$0.17), compared with diluted earnings per ADS of RMB3.38 in the same quarter last year and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB5.14 in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Yintech for the quarter was RMB131.8 million (US$19.4 million), a decrease of 36.8% from RMB208.3 million in the same quarter last year and a decrease of 66.8% from RMB397.4 million in the previous quarter.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS for the quarter were RMB1.79 (US$0.26), compared with non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS of RMB3.50 in the same quarter last year and non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS of RMB5.36 in the previous quarter.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had cash of RMB905.9 million (US$133.6 million), compared with RMB1,541.2 million as of December 31, 2016. The decrease was mainly due to the purchase in the net amount of RMB949.5 million of available-for-sale investments such as wealth management products since the beginning of 2017 and the 2016 annual dividend distribution of RMB385.1 million (US$55.9 million), which was partially offset by net income of RMB464.1 million for the first half of 2017.

As of June 30, 2017, Total shareholders' equity of Yintech was RMB3,456.4 million (US$509.8 million), compared with RMB3,316.0 million as of December 31, 2016.

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 Third Quarter Guidance

  • Customer trading volume will be in the range of RMB800 billion to RMB850 billion, compared to customer trading volume of RMB588 billion for the second quarter of 2017 which excludes customer trading volume from Guangdong and Tianjin Exchanges.
  • Revenues will be in the range of RMB360 million to RMB400 million, compared to revenues of RMB277 million for the second quarter of 2017 which excludes net commissions and fees from Guangdong and Tianjin Exchanges.

The Company expects customer trading volume and revenues to further expand during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Recent Developments

On July 7, 2017, Yintech entered into an agreement (the "Agreement") to form a financial software, information and services joint venture with SINA Corporation (NASDAQ: SINA) ("SINA"), a leading online media company serving China and the global Chinese communities. Pursuant to the Agreement, Yintech and SINA will take a 51.0% and 49.0% equity stake, respectively, in SINA Caidao (Shanghai) Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("SINA Caidao") after completing a series of reorganization and capital increases, through which SINA Caidao's paid-in capital will be enlarged to RMB200.0 million. SINA Caidao will focus on providing financial software, information and services to individual investors seeking investments in securities, wealth management, futures and gold products. The reorganization and capital increase is expected to complete in the third quarter of 2017. SINA Caidao is expected to begin generating revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017.

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.
