Retail Network Optimization

In an email to employees posted on the company’s blog today, Oportun’s CEO, Raul Vazquez, announced that the Company intends to close 136 of its retail locations. This decision was based upon the success of Oportun’s investments in its mobile channel and digital marketing, and the Company expects it can continue to serve its existing customer base and more rapidly scale to new customers with a more capital efficient retail footprint. To illustrate the success of its digital initiatives, the Company disclosed that in the fourth quarter of 2020, 65% of new applicants chose to apply online, up from 46% one year ago, and 73% of all payments were made outside of its stores, up from 60% one year ago.

Financial and Operating Results

To facilitate useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of its business, the Company has provided below unaudited financial information for the three- and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 on a GAAP basis as well as a Fair Value Pro Forma (“FVPF”) Adjusted basis. The FVPF and adjusted financial results reflect the Company’s performance as if the fair value option had been elected since inception for all loans originated and held for investment and all asset-backed notes issued. All figures are as of December 31, 2020, unless otherwise noted.

 

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results 

Total Revenue and FVPF Total Revenue – Total revenue and FVPF Total Revenue for the fourth quarter was $140.8 million, as compared to total revenue of $165.3 million and FVPF Total Revenue of $165.2 million in the prior-year quarter. The lower revenue was attributable to lower originations in the Company’s portfolio as a result of economic uncertainty and the Company’s tightened lending criteria and underwriting practices proactively put in place at the onset of the pandemic.

Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) – Net income was $8.5 million, as compared to $23.2 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Net Income was $17.5 million, up 320% sequentially and down 35% from $26.9 million in the prior-year quarter. The decreases in net income and Adjusted Net Income were primarily due to lower total revenue.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share and Adjusted EPS – GAAP earnings per share, basic and diluted, were $0.31 and $0.29, respectively, as compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.86 and $0.81, respectively, in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted EPS was $0.60 as compared to $0.94 in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA was $0.0 million, down from $17.0 million in the prior-year quarter. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful metric because it is a proxy for Oportun’s pre-tax cash profitability. In addition to adding back taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation and one-time events, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the non-cash impact of fair value accounting.

 

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Total Revenue and FVPF Total Revenue – Total revenue and FVPF Total Revenue for the full year was $583.7 million, as compared to total revenue of $600.1 million and FVPF Total Revenue of $598.4 million in 2019. The lower revenue was attributable to lower originations in the Company’s portfolio as a result of economic uncertainty and the Company’s tightened lending criteria and underwriting practices proactively put in place at the onset of the pandemic.

Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) – Net loss was $45.1 million, as compared to net income of $61.6 million in 2019. Adjusted Net Loss was $14.2 million, compared to Adjusted Net Income of $62.8 million in the prior full year.  The decreases in net income and Adjusted Net Income are due to decreased total revenue, higher charge-offs, lower fair value of loans due to decline in yields from lending to more returning customers and capping APRs at 36% starting in August 2020, and increased full-year operating expenses relative to 2019 where the operating expenses ramped up during the year in preparation for the Company’s IPO in September 2019.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share and Adjusted EPS – GAAP net loss per share, basic and diluted, was $1.65 for the full year 2020 as compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.46 and $0.40, respectively, in the prior year. Adjusted EPS was $(0.52) in 2020 as compared to $2.53 in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA was $22.1 million, down from $74.3 million in the prior full year. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of FVPF Total Revenue was 3.8% and 12.4% for 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

Origination Trends

Originations for the fourth quarter were $448.6 million, as compared to $619.3 million in the prior-year quarter. The Company’s originations increased 48% sequentially in the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared to the third quarter of 2020 due to increasing approval rates, the refinement of its marketing efforts.

 

Credit and Operating Metrics

The Company believes that its rapid implementation of emergency hardship programs and reduced payment plans has been effective in providing impacted customers sufficient time to return to repayment status. As of December 31, 2020, 1.4% of Oportun’s Owned Principal Balance at End of Period was in Emergency Hardship Deferral status.

Net Charge-Off Rate – The Annualized Net Charge-Off Rate for the fourth quarter was 9.4%, compared to 9.0% for the prior-year quarter, and was 9.8% for the full year 2020, compared to 8.3% for the prior full year. As a result of the pandemic and based upon the Company’s analysis of historical loan performance following natural disasters or other emergencies, more loans have been determined to be uncollectible prior to reaching 120 days contractually past due, resulting in $6.3 million higher charge-offs in the fourth quarter.

30+ Day Delinquency Rate – 30+ Day Delinquency Rate was 3.7% at the end of 2020, compared to 4.0% at the end of the prior year end.

Operating Efficiency and Adjusted Operating Efficiency – Operating Efficiency for the fourth quarter was 71.0% as compared to 60.8% in the corresponding prior-year quarter. Adjusted Operating Efficiency the fourth quarter was 64.3%, as compared to 57.8% in the corresponding prior-year quarter.

Operating Efficiency for the year was 67.4% as compared to 60.4% in the prior year. Adjusted Operating Efficiency for the year was 61.1%, as compared to 57.2% in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses is driven by full-year operating expenses relative to 2019 where the operating expenses ramped up during the year in preparation for the Company’s IPO in September 2019 as well as $21.9 million in investments in new products in the year ended 2020.

Book Value and Adjusted Tangible Book Value – Book Value at December 31, 2020 was $466.4 million, or $16.85 per share, and Adjusted Tangible Book Value was $438.2 million, or $15.83 per share.

Return on Equity (“ROE”) and Adjusted ROE – ROE for the fourth quarter was 7.4%, compared to 19.5% in the corresponding prior-year quarter.  Adjusted ROE for the fourth quarter was 15.2%, compared to 22.8% in the corresponding prior-year quarter.

ROE for the year was (9.4)%, as compared to 14.7% in the prior year. Adjusted ROE for the year was (3.0)%, as compared to 14.9% in the prior year.

 

Funding and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2020, cash and cash equivalents were $136.2 million and restricted cash was $32.4 million. FVPF Cost of Debt and FVPF Debt-to-Equity were 3.9% and 3.0x, respectively, for and at the end of 2020 as compared to 4.1% and 3.2x, respectively, for and at the end of the prior year. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had $153.0 million of undrawn capacity on its existing $400.0 million warehouse line. The Company’s warehouse line is committed through October 2021.

Based upon its recent projections, Oportun has determined it continues to have more than 12 months of liquidity runway.(1) The Company’s balance sheet is characterized by relatively low leverage. Oportun’s term securitizations and its warehouse line are non-recourse to Oportun Financial Corporation and its operating subsidiaries. The Company’s term securitizations allow it to fund new loan originations for the remainder of each securitization’s revolving period; the revolving periods have end dates which range from March 2021 to July 2022. Oportun also continues to sell a percentage of newly originated loans on a whole loan basis at a fixed price pursuant to existing flow sale contracts.

 

Financial Outlook

Because of the ongoing uncertainties related to the pandemic and the likelihood of continued government stimulus, the Company is not providing financial guidance at this time. The Company anticipates its future financial performance will continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences, but the magnitude and timing of this impact is too dependent on external factors to reliably set guidance parameters at this time.

Oportun Financial Corporation

ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(unaudited)

The press release dated February 18, 2021 contains non-GAAP financial measures. The following tables reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures in that press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). These non-GAAP financial measures include FVPF Total Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Efficiency, Adjusted Return on Equity, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Tangible Book Value and Adjusted Tangible Book Value Per Share.

The Company believes that the provision of these non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of Oportun’s core business and useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating its operating results. However, non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, differ from GAAP measures with the same names, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies.

Fair Value Pro Forma

Oportun has elected the fair value option to account for all loans held for investment that were originated on or after January 1, 2018, (the “Fair Value Loans”), and for all asset-backed notes issued on or after January 1, 2018, (the “Fair Value Notes”). The Company made this election because, for a fast-growing company that produces high-quality assets such as Oportun, fair value accounting brings its GAAP net income closer to the net cash flow generated by its business, and more in line with its more mature public peers. In order to facilitate comparisons to prior periods, the Company has provided financial information for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and for prior periods on a pro forma basis, or the Fair Value Pro Forma, as if the fair value option had been elected since inception for all loans originated and held for investment and all asset-backed notes issued. Upon adoption of ASU 2019-05 effective January 1, 2020, the Company elected the fair value option on all loans receivable previously measured at amortized cost.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), adjusted for the impact of the Company’s election of the fair value option and further adjusted to eliminate the effect of certain items as described below. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA Margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by FVPF Total Revenue. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are important measures because they allow management, investors and its board of directors to evaluate and compare operating results, including return on capital and operating efficiencies, from period to period by making the adjustments described below. In addition, it provides a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of Oportun’s business, as it removes the effect of income taxes, certain non-cash items, variable charges and timing differences.

  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude the impact of income tax expense (benefit), as reported, because historically it has included irregular income tax items that do not reflect ongoing business operations.
  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense because they are non-cash charges.
  • The Company excludes the impact of COVID-19 expenses, impairment charges and litigation reserve because it does not believe that these items reflect ongoing business operations.
  • The Company also reverses origination fees for Fair Value Loans, net. As a result of the Company’s election of the fair value option for Fair Value Loans, the Company recognizes the full amount of any origination fees as revenue at the time of loan disbursement in advance of collection of origination fees through principal payments. As a result, the Company believes it is beneficial to exclude the uncollected portion of such origination fees, because such amounts do not represent cash received.
  • The Company also reverses the fair value mark-to-market adjustment because it is a non-cash adjustment.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss)

The Company defines Adjusted Net Income (Loss) as net income (loss) adjusted for the impact of the Company’s election of the fair value option and further adjusted to eliminate the effect of certain items as described below. The Company believes that Adjusted Net Income is an important measure of operating performance because it allows management, investors, and Oportun’s board of directors to evaluate and compare its operating results, including return on capital and operating efficiencies, from period to period, excluding the after-tax impact of non-cash, stock-based compensation expense and one-time, non-recurring items such as litigation reserves.

  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude the impact of income tax expense (benefit), as reported, because historically it has included irregular income tax items that do not reflect ongoing business operations. The Company also includes the impact of normalized income tax expense by applying a normalized statutory tax rate.
  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude the impact of COVID-19 expenses, impairment charges and litigation reserve because it does not believe that these items reflect its ongoing business operations.
  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expense because it is a non-cash charge.

The Company defines Adjusted Operating Efficiency as total Fair Value Pro Forma operating expenses (excluding COVID-19 expenses, stock-based compensation expense, impairment charges and litigation reserve) divided by Fair Value Pro Forma Total Revenue. The Company believes Adjusted Operating Efficiency is an important measure because it allows management, investors and Oportun’s board of directors to evaluate how efficient the Company is at managing costs relative to revenue.

Adjusted Return on Equity

The Company defines Adjusted Return on Equity (“ROE”) as annualized Adjusted Net Income divided by Fair Value Pro Forma average shareholders’ equity. The Company believes Adjusted ROE is an important measure because it allows management, investors and Oportun’s board of directors to evaluate the profitability of the business in relation to equity and how well the Company generates income from the equity available.

Adjusted EPS

The Company defines Adjusted EPS as Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.  Weighted-average diluted common shares outstanding have been adjusted to reflect the conversion of all convertible preferred shares as of the beginning of each annual period.

Adjusted Tangible Book Value and Adjusted Tangible Book Value Per Share (“Adjusted TBVPS”)

The Company defines Adjusted Tangible Book Value as Fair Value Pro Forma total stockholders’ equity, excluding intangible assets and system development costs, and Adjusted TBVPS as Adjusted Tangible Book Value divided by common shares outstanding at period end. The Company believes that Adjusted TBVPS is an important measure because it provides  management, investors and its Board with an assessment of value that is more conservative than Book Value Per Share in order to evaluate the financial position, capitalization, and valuation of the business in relation to total shares outstanding at the end of the period. The Company believes it is important to exclude intangibles, as these would not have standalone value outside the context of the business.
