Financial and Operating Results

 

Previously, in order to facilitate useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of its business, the Company provided unaudited financial information on a GAAP basis as well as a Fair Value Pro Forma ("FVPF") adjusted basis to 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. As of January 1, 2021, the FVPF adjustments are no longer necessary because all loans originated and held for investment and all asset-backed notes issued are recorded at fair value. All figures are as of September 30, 2021, unless otherwise noted.

     
1 See the section entitled “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for an explanation of non-GAAP measures, and the table entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures. GAAP and Adjusted total revenue are the same for 2021 and 2020.

Financial Results

Revenue – Total revenue for the third quarter was $159.1 million, an increase of 16% as compared to $136.8 million in the prior-year quarter. The increase was primarily driven by higher interest income attributable to the Company's higher Average Daily Principal Balance due to growth in the underlying portfolio as a result of increased origination volume. Net revenue for the third quarter was $139.5 million, an increase of 51.1% as compared to FVPF Net Revenue of $92.4 million in the prior-year quarter. Net revenue improved from the prior-year quarter due to higher revenue, lower interest expense and lower charge-offs.

Operating Expenses –   For the third quarter, total operating expense was $111.4 million, as compared to $101.6 million in the prior-year quarter. Operating expense in the Company's unsecured personal loan business, excluding certain non-recurring charges and investment in new products, increased 10% year-over-year to $96.7 million, primarily driven by its increased investment in marketing to drive growth and initiatives to further enhance our technology. Operating expenses associated with new products grew year-over-year by $10.4 million to $14.6 million.

Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Net Income (Loss) – Net income was $23.0 million, as compared to a net loss of $6.0 million in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Net Income was $23.8 million as compared to $4.2 million in the prior-year quarter. The increases in net income and Adjusted Net Income are attributable to increased revenues and improved current period charge-offs, among the lowest in the company's history, which increased the value of the Company's loan portfolio.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share and Adjusted EPS – GAAP earnings per share, basic and diluted, were $0.82 and $0.75, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2021. GAAP earnings (loss) per share, basic and diluted, were both $(0.22) in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Earnings Per Share was $0.78 as compared to $0.15 in the prior-year quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA was $18.1 million, up from $(1.2) 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 and amortization, stock-based compensation and certain non-recurring charges, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the non-cash impact of fair value accounting.

Growth Trends

Originations – Aggregate Originations for the third quarter were $662.1 million, as compared to $302.4 million in the prior-year quarter. This 119.0% increase was primarily driven by growth in loan application volume due to higher demand.

Active Customers – Active customers for the third quarter were 772,361, a 24% increase as compared to 624,205 in the prior-year quarter. This increase was primarily driven by growth from digital marketing, direct mail and customer referral programs, and we have seen active customers continue to grow to 813,536 as of October 31, 2021.

Credit and Operating Metrics

Net Charge-Off Rate – The Annualized Net Charge-Off Rate for the quarter was 5.5%, compared to 10.4% for the prior-year quarter. The improved current period charge-offs are at historically low levels.

30+ Day Delinquency Rate – The Company's 30+ Day Delinquency Rate was 2.8% at the end of the quarter, compared to 3.5% at the end of the prior-year quarter. The improvement was due to the effectiveness of the Company's A.I.-driven underwriting, as well as overall economic recovery.

Operating Efficiency and Adjusted Operating Efficiency – Operating Efficiency for the quarter was 70.0% as compared to 74.3% in the prior-year quarter. Adjusted Operating Efficiency for the third quarter was 67.1%, as compared to 63.3% in the prior-year quarter. Operating Efficiency and Adjusted Operating Efficiency reflected the Company's investments in new products. Adjusted Operating Efficiency excludes stock-based compensation expense and the Company's retail network optimization expenses.

Return On Equity ("ROE") and Adjusted ROE – ROE for the quarter was 18.3%, as compared to (5.3)% in the prior-year quarter.  Adjusted ROE for the quarter was 19.0%, as compared to 3.7% in the prior-year quarter.

New Products

Secured personal loans – As of September 30, 2021, the Company had a secured personal loan receivables balance of $29.6 million, up from $0.3 million at the end of the third quarter 2020, and up 113% quarter-over-quarter.

Credit card receivables – As of September 30, 2021, the Company was servicing $38.2 million in credit card receivables, an increase of 1,094% over the prior-year quarter and nearly double the amount of receivables, sequentially. As of October 31, 2021, we had 94,705 active customer accounts in 45 states across the U.S.

Funding and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2021, total cash was $223.8 million, consisting of cash and cash equivalents of $168.4 million and restricted cash of $55.3 million. Cost of Debt and Debt-to-Equity were 2.8% and 3.3x, respectively, for and at the end of the third quarter 2021 as compared to FVPF Cost of Debt and FVPF Debt-to-Equity of 3.9% and 2.9x, respectively, for and at the end of the prior-year quarter. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $71.0 million of undrawn capacity on its existing $600.0 million warehouse line; as of October 31, 2021, undrawn capacity was $534.0 million, the increase attributable to the issuance of the Company's 2021-C asset-backed notes. The Company's warehouse line is committed through September 2024.

  • On September 8, 2021, the Company closed on a Personal Loan Warehouse facility ("PLW") that provides $600.0 million of committed funding through September 2024. The Personal Loan Warehouse provides funding for both the Company's unsecured personal loans and secured personal loans. On the closing date, the Company drew on the warehouse facility to redeem $175.0 million of the Company's outstanding Series 2018-D Notes.

  • On October 28, 2021, the Company announced the issuance of $500.0 million of 3-year fixed-rate asset-backed notes by Oportun Issuance Trust 2021-C secured by a pool of its unsecured and secured personal installment loans. The transaction was priced with a weighted average fixed interest rate of 2.48% per annum.

ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(unaudited)

 

The press release dated November 3, 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 GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Efficiency, Adjusted Return on Equity and Adjusted EPS.

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
As of January 1, 2021, Oportun no longer has any Fair Value Pro Forma adjustments as there are no longer any amortized cost balances. However, there were Fair Value Pro Forma adjustments related to its asset-backed notes at amortized cost for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 as reflected in the following tables. Upon adoption of ASU 2019-05, effective January 1, 2020, the Company elected the fair value option on all remaining loans that had previously been measured at amortized cost. Accordingly, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not have any loans receivable measured at amortized cost. Therefore, there are no Fair Value Pro Forma adjustments related to assets or revenue as of and for the three or nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA
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 believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure because it allows 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 certain non-recurring charges, such as expenses associated with a litigation reserve, its retail network optimization plan and impairment charges, because it does not believe that these items reflect ongoing business operations. During the last three quarters of 2020 the Company excluded COVID-19 related expenses in its adjustments to derive Adjusted EBITDA. As of January 1, 2021, COVID-19 expenses are no longer being excluded from Adjusted EBITDA because the Company's business practices have been updated to operate in the current environment.
  • The Company also reverses origination fees for Fair Value Loans, net. 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 certain non-recurring charges.

  • 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 certain non-recurring charges, such as expenses associated with a litigation reserve, its retail network optimization plan and impairment charges, because it does not believe that these items reflect its ongoing business operations. During the last three quarters of 2020, the Company excluded COVID-19 related expenses in its adjustments to derive Adjusted Net Income. As of January 1, 2021, COVID-19 expenses are no longer being excluded from Adjusted Net Income because the Company's business practices have been updated to operate in the current environment.
  • The Company believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expense because it is a non-cash charge.

Adjusted Operating Efficiency
The Company defines Adjusted Operating Efficiency as total operating expenses adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring charges, such as a litigation reserve, retail network optimization expenses and impairment charges divided by total revenue. During the last three quarters of 2020 the Company included COVID-19 related expenses in its adjustments to derive Adjusted Operating Efficiency. As of January 1, 2021, COVID-19 expenses are no longer being excluded from Adjusted Operating Efficiency because the Company's business practices have been updated to operate in the current environment. 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 average stockholders’ equity. Average stockholders’ equity is an average of the beginning and ending stockholders’ equity balance for each period. Before January 1, 2021, the Company previously defined Adjusted Return on Equity as annualized Adjusted Net Income divided by average Fair Value Pro Forma total stockholders’ equity.
