SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingClub Corporation (NYSE: LC), America's largest online marketplace connecting borrowers and investors, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.

Financial highlights for the fourth quarter include:

  • Delivered record revenue, the highest in the company's history, of $156.5 million, up 20 percent year-over-year.
  • Achieved 23 percent annual growth in originations to over $2.4 billion.

Operational highlights for the fourth quarter include:

  • Launched a new feature to enable borrowers to directly pay off existing credit card debt in order to improve loan performance and financial health for customers.
  • Introduced CLUB Certificates, a first-of-its-kind marketplace lending product that opens up the asset class to new investors.
  • Signed multi-year deals with a loan servicing platform and new partners to drive long-term operating cost efficiencies and increased operational flexibility.

Scott Sanborn, LendingClub CEO said, "2017 was a year of rebuilding and transforming our core business. We returned to growth and materially expanded and diversified our investor base. We're continuing to invest in our people, technology and products to position us for the years ahead."

Settlement details:

Yesterday, the parties agreed to a Stipulation of Settlement that will be filed with the court, resulting from mediation efforts that began in November 2017. Details include:

  • $125.0 million agreement, subject to court approval.
  • $47.75 million will be covered by LendingClub's insurance.
  • The remaining $77.25 million is reflected in the company's fourth quarter net loss and will be paid from liquid assets of approximately $650 million held at December 31, 2017.

This preliminary settlement will have no material impact on the company's business operations in 2018. As previously disclosed, LendingClub is still subject to several outstanding legacy issues that will result in elevated legal costs, including ongoing regulatory and government investigations, indemnification obligations and litigation.

Commenting on the preliminary settlement, Sanborn added, "We're encouraged to have reached an agreement that will put this matter behind us and substantially reduces our financial risk going forward."

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights

Commenting on financial results, Tom Casey, LendingClub CFO said, "The underlying financial performance of our business is strong and the investments we've made in 2017 position us for growth and expanded Adjusted EBITDA margins in 2018."

Originations – Loan originations in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $2.44 billion, remaining relatively flat from the third quarter of 2017 and up 23% compared to the same quarter last year.

Net Revenue – Net revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $156.5 million, up 2% from the third quarter of 2017 and up 20% compared to the same quarter last year, driven primarily by a higher volume of loan originations in the fourth quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter last year. Net revenue as a percent of originations, or revenue yield, was 6.42% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Consolidated Net Loss – GAAP net loss was $92.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, increasing $85.4 million from the third quarter of 2017 and increasing $59.8 million compared to the same quarter last year, driven primarily by the class action litigation settlement expense of $77.25 million during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA (2) Adjusted EBITDA was $19.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, declining $1.8 million from the third quarter of 2017 and improving $19.9 million compared to the same quarter last year.

Earnings Per Share (EPS) – Basic and diluted EPS attributable to LendingClub was $(0.22) for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to basic and diluted EPS attributable to LendingClub of $(0.02) in the third quarter of 2017 and $(0.08) in the same quarter last year.

Adjusted EPS (2) – Adjusted EPS was $0.01 for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to adjusted EPS of $0.03 in the third quarter of 2017 and $(0.02) in the same quarter last year.

Cash, Cash Equivalents, Securities Available for Sale and Loans Invested in by the Company – As of December 31, 2017, cash, cash equivalents and securities available for sale totaled $474 million, excluding $45.3 million in securities available for sale subject to regulatory risk retention requirements. As the company continued to build its investor programs, it began using cash to accumulate loans for future transactions. Loans held for sale by the company at the end of the fourth quarter were $236 million.

Outlook

Based on the information available as of February 20, 2018, LendingClub provides the following outlook for the first quarter and full year 2018:

First Quarter 2018

Total Net Revenue in the range of $145 million to $155 million

Net Income (Loss) (3) in the range of $(25) million to $(20) million

Adjusted EBITDA(2)(3) in the range of $5 million to $10 million

Reconciling Items between net loss and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA consisting of stock-based compensation of approximately $19 million, and depreciation and amortization and other net adjustments of approximately $11 million

Full Year 2018

Total Net Revenue in the range of $680 million to $705 million

Net Income (Loss) (3) in the range of $(53) million to $(38) million

Adjusted EBITDA(2)(3) in the range of $75 million to $90 million

Reconciling Items between net loss and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA consisting of stock-based compensation of approximately $77 million, and depreciation and amortization and other net adjustments of approximately $51 million

(2)

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. Please see discussion below under the heading "Non-GAAP Measures" and the reconciliations at the end of this release.

(3)

Forecasted Net Income (Loss) excludes expenses associated with outstanding legacy issues, as those expenses are neither probable nor estimable at this time. Adjusted EBITDA will also exclude expenses associated with outstanding legacy issues as more fully described in the discussion below under "Non-GAAP Measures." We will update forecasted Net Income (Loss) as expenses associated with outstanding legacy issues become available.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: contribution, contribution margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, and adjusted EPS. 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 direct product profitability because the measures illustrate the relationship between the costs most directly associated with revenue generating activities and the related revenue, and the effectiveness of the direct costs in obtaining revenue. We believe that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are important measures of operating performance because it allows for the comparison of our core operating results, including our return on capital and operating efficiencies, from period to period by removing outstanding legacy issues that will result in elevated legal costs, including ongoing regulatory and government investigations, indemnification obligations and litigation, the impact of depreciation, impairment and amortization in our asset base, other non-operating expenses, and share-based compensation, and tax consequences. We believe adjusted EPS is a useful measure used by investors and analysts in our sector because non-cash items like stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles can vary significantly due to many factors unrelated to the business.

In the fourth quarter of 2017, the company included a new adjustment for outstanding legacy issues that result in elevated legal costs, including ongoing regulatory and government investigations, indemnification obligations and litigation to calculate adjusted EBITDA. We expect expenses in the future to include resolution of additional matters that arose from legacy management, including indemnification legal expenses paid by the Company for former employees, and settlements of regulatory investigations and examinations. Such legacy expenses incurred prior to the fourth quarter of 2017 were offset by insurance proceeds, resulting in no net impact to earnings in those periods. As such, prior period amounts were not recast for the change in how we calculate adjusted EBITDA.

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, specifically stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and the related income tax effects of the aforementioned exclusions 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

Some of the statements above, including statements regarding borrower and investor demand and anticipated future financial results are "forward-looking statements." The words "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "outlook," "plan," "predict," "project," "will," "would" and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements include: the outcomes of pending governmental investigations and pending or threatened litigation, which are inherently uncertain; the impact of management changes and the ability to continue to retain key personnel; ability to achieve cost savings from recent restructurings; our ability to continue to attract and retain new and existing retail and institutional investors; competition; overall economic conditions; demand for the types of loans facilitated by us; default rates and those factors set forth in the section titled "Risk Factors" in our most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K, each as filed with the SEC. 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.
