SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingClub Corporation (NYSE: LC), America's largest online lending marketplace connecting borrowers and investors, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Commenting on the quarter, CEO Scott Sanborn said, "In the current challenging environment, we have remained focused on the things we can control and are successfully executing against our strategic priorities. We are pleased with our ability to maintain strong levels of liquidity, are encouraged by the payment behavior of our members and the resilience of the loan portfolio and remain focused on the acquisition of Radius Bank." He continued, "Approximately two-thirds of members who enrolled in our hardship plans have successfully exited the deferral period and resumed full payment. This demonstrates the willingness of our members to repay their loans and is supporting the early re-engagement of loan investors back onto the platform."

We are navigating the business through this challenging environment by following five key guiding principles.

  • Keep our employees safe – Almost all of our employees have been working remotely since March. As a digital company with a branchless structure, we have been able to keep employees engaged and serve our members and our investors despite this significant change to the way we operate. As the safety of our employees is paramount, we expect employees to continue working from home until at least the end of the year.
  • Preserve liquidity – In the second quarter, we took decisive actions to reduce our cash expenses and preserve liquidity, successfully ending the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $338 million. Our focus today is on increasing our cash position as a percentage of our total liquidity to maximize flexibility and to prepare for a streamlined acquisition and capitalization of Radius.
  • Protect investor returns – Despite the weak macroeconomic backdrop, we are observing positive payment behavior and are encouraged by the overall performance of the portfolio. The recent pre-COVID vintages, which will be the most impacted by the weaker economy, are currently expected to generate Internal Rates of Return (IRRs) of 3% in the aggregate. We have tightened underwriting standards for post-COVID loans and are targeting IRRs of 5% on new vintages. While we expect recovery to take time, we are encouraged that five of our top 10 investors have re-engaged and resumed purchasing.
  • Support our members – LendingClub is continuing to innovate on behalf of our members by expanding our servicing capacity, launching multiple self-service options online in our new member center, and expanding our range of available hardship plans to provide reduced payment options.
  • Stay on track for the acquisition of Radius – Completing the acquisition will help accelerate our recovery and is one of our top strategic priorities. We remain in close contact with regulators to accomplish this objective.

Q2 results reflected an expected decline in origination volume and an increase in prepayments, partially offset by lower fair value marks and lower expenses.GAAP Consolidated Net Loss for the quarter of $(78.5) million primarily reflected a 90% year-over-year decrease in loan origination volumes, which was in line with our expectations. Second quarter results were also impacted by an increase in loan prepayments to pre-COVID levels compared to the levels we experienced in the first quarter of 2020. As a result of the recovering levels of prepayments, we increased our transaction fee refund reserve resulting in lower reported transaction fee revenue for the quarter. The increase in prepayments also reduced the valuation of our servicing asset, resulting in a reduction in investor fees for the quarter. Together, these items impacted net revenue by approximately $19 million.

Summary of Q2 Results

  • Loan originations of $325.8 million, down 90% year-over-year.
  • Net Revenue of $43.9 million, down 77% year-over-year.
  • GAAP Consolidated Net Loss of $(78.5) million ($(0.87) per share attributable to common stockholders), compared to a loss of $(10.6) million ($(0.12) per share attributable to common stockholders) in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $(27.6) million, down 183% year-over-year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA Margin of (63.0)%, down 80.4 percentage points year-over-year.
  • Adjusted Net Loss of $(54.3) million ($(0.60) adjusted net loss per share), compared to an Adjusted Net Loss of $(1.2) million ($(0.01) adjusted net loss per share) in the second quarter of 2019.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial HighlightsCommenting on financial results, Tom Casey, CFO of LendingClub, said: "As anticipated, origination levels decreased in line with our expectations, reflecting the economic impact of COVID-19 on our investors, our decision to tighten underwriting and our decision to pause capital markets activities to preserve liquidity as we work towards completing the Radius acquisition. We feel good about the actions we have taken to align our operating cash expenses with revenue, maintain our liquidity, and increase our cash position in the quarter."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Supplemental Financial Statement Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Contribution, Contribution Margin, Adjusted Net Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share (Adjusted EPS) and Net Cash and Other Financial Assets. Our non-GAAP measures do have limitations as analytical tools and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of our results under GAAP.

We believe these non-GAAP measures provide management and investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and enable comparison of our financial results with other public companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

In particular, we believe Contribution and Contribution Margin are useful measures of overall direct product profitability because the measures illustrate the relationship between costs most directly associated with revenue generating activities and the related revenue, and the effectiveness of the direct costs in obtaining revenue. Contribution is calculated as net revenue less "Sales and marketing" and "Origination and servicing" expenses on the Company's Statements of Operations, adjusted to exclude cost structure simplification, restructuring costs, other items (related to one-time expenses resulting from COVID-19) and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses within these captions and income or loss attributable to noncontrolling interests. The adjustment for cost structure simplification expense relates to a review of our cost structure and a number of expense initiatives underway, including the establishment of a site in the Salt Lake City area. The expense includes incremental and excess personnel-related expenses associated with establishing our Salt Lake City area site and external advisory fees. The adjustment for restructuring costs included severance and other personnel-related expenses, lease-related expenses and software impairment related to the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's business. Contribution Margin is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing Contribution by total net revenue.

We believe Adjusted Net Income (Loss) is an important measure because it directly reflects the financial performance of our business. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) adjusts for certain items that are either non-recurring, do not contribute directly to management's evaluation of its operating results, or non-cash items, such as (1) expenses related to our cost structure simplification, as discussed above, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) legal, regulatory and other expense related to legacy issues, (4) acquisition and related expenses, (5) restructuring costs and (6) other items (including certain non-legacy litigation and/or regulatory settlement expenses, gains on disposal of certain assets and expenses resulting from COVID-19), net of tax. Legacy items are generally those expenses that arose from the decisions of legacy management prior to the board review initiated in 2016 and resulted in the resignation of our former CEO, including legal and other costs associated with ongoing regulatory and government investigations, indemnification obligations, litigation, and termination of certain legacy contracts. In the second quarter of 2020, we added an adjustment to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for "Restructuring costs" to adjust for severance and other personnel-related expenses, lease-related expenses and software impairment related to the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's business. In the fourth quarter of 2019, we added an adjustment to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) for "Acquisition and related expenses" to adjust for costs related to the acquisition of Radius. In the second quarter of 2019, we added an adjustment to Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA for Other items to adjust for expenses or gains that are not part of our core operating results.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are important measures of operating performance because they allow for the comparison of our core operating results, including our return on capital and operating efficiencies, from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA adjusts for certain items that are either non-recurring, do not contribute directly to management's evaluation of its operating results, or non-cash items, such as (1) cost structure simplification expense, (2) goodwill impairment, (3) legal, regulatory and other expense related to legacy issues, (4) acquisition and related expenses, (5) restructuring costs, (6) other items, as discussed above, (7) depreciation, impairment and amortization expense, (8) stock-based compensation expense and (9) income tax expense (benefit). Additionally, we utilize Adjusted EBITDA as an input into the Company's calculation of the annual bonus plan. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by total net revenue.

We believe Adjusted EPS is an important measure because it directly reflects the financial performance of our business. Adjusted EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing Adjusted Net Income (Loss) attributable to both common and preferred stockholders by the weighted-average diluted common and preferred shares outstanding.

We believe Net Cash and Other Financial Assets is a useful measure because it illustrates the overall financial stability and operating leverage of the Company. This measure is calculated as cash and certain other assets and liabilities, including loans and securities available for sale, which are partially secured and offset by related credit facilities, and working capital.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of these non-GAAP financial measures versus their most comparable GAAP measure. In particular, many of the adjustments to derive the non-GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate these measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as a comparative measure.

For more information on our non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of such measures to the nearest GAAP measure, please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures" tables at the end of this release.

Safe Harbor Statement

We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions or expectations disclosed in forward-looking statements, and you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Actual results or events could differ materially from the plans, intentions and expectations disclosed in forward-looking statements. We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

LENDINGCLUB CORPORATIONSUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION(In thousands)(Unaudited)

The following table is provided to delineate between the assets and liabilities belonging to our member payment dependent self-directed retail program (Retail Program) note holders and certain VIEs that we are required to consolidate in accordance with GAAP. Such assets are not legally ours and the associated liabilities are payable only from the cash flows generated by those assets (i.e. Pass-throughs). As such, these debt holders do not have a secured interest in any other assets of LendingClub. We believe this is a useful measure because it illustrates the overall financial stability and operating leverage of the Company.

(1)  

Represents loans held for investment at fair value that are funded directly by our Retail Program notes. The liabilities are only payable from the cash flows generated by the associated assets. We do not assume principal or interest rate risk on loans facilitated through our lending marketplace that are funded by our Retail Program because loan balances, interest rates and maturities are matched and offset by an equal balance of notes with the exact same interest rates and maturities. We do not retain any economic interests from our Retail Program. Interest expense on Retail Program notes of $53.8 million and $80.8 million was equally matched and offset by interest income from the related loans of $53.8 million and $80.8 million for the first halves of 2020 and 2019, respectively, resulting in no net effect on our Net interest income and fair value adjustments.

(2)    

Represents assets and equal and offsetting liabilities of certain VIEs that we are required to consolidate in accordance with GAAP, but which are not legally ours. The liabilities are only payable from the cash flows generated by the associated assets. The creditors of the VIEs have no recourse to the general credit of the Company. Interest expense on these liabilities owned by third parties of $14.9 million and net fair value adjustments of $5.7 million for the first half of 2020 were equally matched and offset by interest income on the loans of $20.6 million, resulting in no net effect on our Net interest income and fair value adjustments. Interest expense on these liabilities owned by third parties of $47.5 million and net fair value adjustments of $7.7 million for the first half of 2019 were equally matched and offset by interest income on the loans of $55.2 million, resulting in no net effect on our Net interest income and fair value adjustments. Economic interests held by LendingClub, including retained interests, residuals and equity of the VIEs, are reflected in "Loans held for sale by the Company at fair value," "Loans held for investment by the Company at fair value" and "Restricted cash," respectively, within the "All Other LendingClub" column.

(3)  

Represents all other assets and liabilities of LendingClub, other than those related to our Retail Program and certain consolidated VIEs, but includes any economic interests held by LendingClub, including retained interests, residuals and equity of those consolidated VIEs.

(4)  

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company sponsored a new Structured Program transaction that was consolidated, resulting in an increase to "Loans held for investment by the Company at fair value" and the related "Payable to Structured Program note and certificate holders at fair value."

(1)  

Variations in cash and cash equivalents are primarily due to variations in the amount and timing of loan purchases invested in by the Company.

(2)   

In the fourth quarter of 2019, we added a new line item called "Other assets and liabilities" which is a total of "Accrued interest receivable," "Other assets," "Accounts payable," "Accrued interest payable" and "Accrued expenses and other liabilities," included on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. This line item represents certain assets and liabilities that impact working capital and are affected by timing differences between revenue and expense recognition and related cash activity. In the third quarter of 2019, we added a new line item called "Restricted cash committed for loan purchases," which represents cash and cash equivalents that are transferred to restricted cash for loans that are pending purchase by the Company. We believe this is a more complete representation of the Company's net cash and other financial assets position as of each period presented in the table above. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

(3)   

Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company sponsored a new Structured Program transaction that was consolidated, resulting in an increase to "Loans held for investment by the Company at fair value" and the related "Payable to Structured Program note and certificate holders at fair value."

(4)
