GUANGZHOU, China, May 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CNinsure Inc, (Nasdaq:CISG), (the "Company" or "CNinsure"), a leading independent insurance intermediary company operating in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 20141.

Financial Highlights for First Quarter of 2014

  • Total net revenues: RMB466.2 million (US$75.0 million), representing an increase of 16.2% from the corresponding period in 2013.
  • Operating income: RMB13.2 million (US$2.1 million), representing an increase of 721.0% from the corresponding period in 2013.
  • Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders: RMB44.7 million (US$7.2 million), representing an increase of 112.6% from the corresponding period in 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2: RMB38.5 million (US$6.2 million), representing an increase of 23.6% from the corresponding period in 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA per ADS: RMB0.77 (US$0.12), representing an increase of 23.6%,from the corresponding period in 2013.

Commenting on the first quarter financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, CNinsure's chief executive officer, stated, "Our commitment to offering superior value-added services and introducing our mobile sales support system to a broader user base began to yield meaningful contributions to our revenue during the beginning of 2014. In the first quarter of 2014, our insurance brokerage business saw robust growth with its revenues up 1,488.3% year-over-year and 81.3% quarter-over-quarter. This business segment is one of the important drivers that brought us back to both top-line and bottom-line growth. In addition to higher-than-expected revenue growth of 16.2% compared to the first quarter of 2013, we were encouraged to see improvements in profitability as a result of increases in operating income, adjusted EBITDA, and net income attributable to the Company's shareholders, all of which outpaced revenue growth, reflecting our effective cost and expense control. These inspiring results are a good start towards achieving our targets for the full year.

"We were also excited about the contributions from CNpad, the workstation of our proprietary mobile sales support system. Insurance premiums generated via CNpad reached RMB199 million in the first quarter, up 921.5% year-over-year and 67.4% quarter-over-quarter, accounting for 14.6% of the total premiums of our property and casualty ("P&C") insurance agency business as compared to 8.2% in the previous quarter. In order to speed up the introduction of our mobile sales support system to a broader user base, we revised our marketing strategy from bundling hardware and software sales to launching applications designed for mobile devices that can be downloaded for free by sales agents and third party channels onto their own devices. As a result, we stopped promoting CNpad in March 2014 with an intent to roll out a new marketing program on June 1, 2014. Our goal is to have a user base of 50,000 sales agents by the end of 2014.

"As the first independent insurance intermediary that actively invests in mobile internet technology and offers one-stop comprehensive financial services and risk management solutions, we believe our first quarter results demonstrate the strengthen of our first-mover advantage and put us in a good position to fully capitalize on the opportunities in the internet finance market by executing on our strategies."

Changes in Segment Reporting

The Company has realigned its financial reporting structure into four business segments to reflect its organizational restructuring and changing business mix. Under the realigned business structure, the four business segments are as follows:

(1) insurance agency business segment, which mainly provides agency services of P&C insurance products and life insurance products to individual clients,

(2) insurance brokerage business segment, which mainly provides P&C and life insurance brokerage services to institutional clients,

(3) claims adjusting segment, which provides pre-underwriting survey, claim adjusting, disposal of residual value, loading and unloading supervision and consulting services, and

(4) other services, which include non-insurance related services.

The Company will begin to report results under the new reporting segments starting the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. Historical results reflecting the new business segments for the corresponding period of the previous year are also presented in the Company's financial reports.

Financial Results for the First quarter of 2014

Total net revenues were RMB466.2 million (US$75.0 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 16.2% from RMB401.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Net revenues of insurance agency business were RMB351.6 million (US$56.6 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 2.4% from RMB343.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily driven by a 7.0% increase in P&C insurance agency business and offset by a 20.6% decrease of life insurance agency business. Revenues generated from insurance agency business accounted for 75.4% of the total net revenues.

Net revenues of insurance brokerage business were RMB51.1 million (US$8.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 1,488.3% from RMB3.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to the low base in this segment during the first quarter of 2013 and more aggressive marketing strategies starting from the fourth quarter of 2013 that resulted in an increase in customer base. Revenues generated from the insurance brokerage business accounted for 11.0% of the total net revenues.

Net revenues of claims adjusting business were RMB63.5 million (US$10.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 21.7% from RMB52.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to the growth of the non-auto insurance related claims adjusting business which grew 40.5% in the first quarter of 2014 from the corresponding period in 2013 as a result of significant increase in cases assigned to us and settled during the first quarter of 2014. Revenues generated from the claims adjusting business accounted for 13.6% of the total net revenues.

Net revenues of other services were nil for the first quarter of 2014, representing a decrease of 100.0% from RMB2.5 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Total operating costs and expenses were RMB453.0 million (US$72.9 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 13.3% from RMB399.7 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Total operating costs were RMB342.5 million (US$55.1 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 15.3% from RMB297.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to sales growth.

Costs of insurance agency business were RMB265.2 million (US$42.7 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 0.2% from RMB264.7 million for the corresponding period in 2013, primarily driven by a 5.3% increase in cost of P&C insurance agency business and offset by a 30.2% decrease in cost of life insurance agency business. The slower growth of cost than net revenues of the insurance agency business was primarily attributable to 1) slower decline of commission rates that we received from insurance companies for the P&C agency business than what we paid to our sales agents, and 2) growth of renewal life insurance business which generally generates higher gross margin than first year life insurance policies. Costs incurred by the insurance agency business accounted for 77.4% of the operating costs.

Costs of insurance brokerage business were RMB39.8 million (US$6.4 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 1,503.8% from RMB2.5 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to sales growth. Costs incurred by the insurance brokerage business accounted for 11.6% of the operating costs.

Costs of claims adjusting business were RMB37.5 million (US$6.0 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 34.4% from RMB27.9 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to sales growth and increased salaries for the claims adjustors. Costs incurred by the claims adjusting business accounted for 11.0% of the operating costs.

Cost of other services were nil for the first quarter of 2014, representing a decrease of 100.0% from RMB2.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Selling expenses were RMB24.2 million (US$3.9 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 20.4% from RMB20.1 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase was primarily due to increases in vehicle, office and marketing expenses.

General and administrative expenses were RMB86.3 million (US$13.9 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 4.7% from RMB82.4 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The slight increase was primarily due to:

(1) an 85.2% increase in research and development expenses from RMB2.7 million for the first quarter of 2013 to RMB4.9 million (US$0.8 million) for the corresponding period in 2014;

(2) a 17.5% increases in staff salary expenses from RMB28.2 million for the first quarter of 2013 to 33.2 million (US$5.3 million) for the corresponding period in 2014, offset by;

(3) a decrease of 40.5% in share-based compensation expenses, from RMB12.8 million for the first quarter of 2013 to RMB7.6 million (US$1.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014. Share-based compensation expenses were mainly associated with stock options granted to certain employees in March 2012, which were recognized on an accelerated basis and such expenses are expected to decrease each year after the grant.

As a result of the preceding factors, income from operations was RMB13.2 million (US$2.1 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 721.0% from RMB1.6 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

Operating margin was 2.8% for the first quarter of 2014, compared with 0.4% for the corresponding period in 2013.

Investment income was RMB 7.2 million (US$1.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014 as compared to nil for the corresponding period in 2013, mainly representing yields from collective trust products in which we've invested starting in March 2013.

Interest income was RMB22.2 million (US$3.6 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 3.2% from RMB21.5 million for the corresponding period in 2013. The increase in interest income was primarily due to an increase in interest bearing receivables from related parties.

Income tax expense was RMB7.3 million (US$1.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 16.6% from RMB6.2 million for the corresponding period in 2013 mainly due to an increase in operating income. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2014 was 17.0% compared with 26.8% for the corresponding period in 2013.

Share of income of affiliates was RMB6.4 million (US$1.0 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 20.3% from RMB5.3 million for the corresponding period in 2013,mainly representing an increase of share of profits from China Financial Services Group Limited, in which we owned 20.58% equity interest.

Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders was RMB44.7 million (US$7.2 million) for the first quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 112.6% from RMB21.0 million for the corresponding period in 2013.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the Company's consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted EBITDA per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income before income tax expense, investment income, interest income, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation expenses. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total net revenues. Adjusted EBITDA per ADS is defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by total number of diluted shares. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. One limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude the items that were significant in the first quarter of 2014 and the corresponding period of 2013, and these items have been, and will continue to be, a significant recurring factor in our business.

In light of the limitations, the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and other interested persons to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
