UP Fintech Holding Limited Reports Unaudited Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2022 Financial Results

 

Singapore, March 29 , 2023 – UP Fintech Holding Limited (NASDAQ: TIGR) (“UP Fintech” or the “Company”), a leading online brokerage firm focusing on global investors, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.


Mr. Wu Tianhua, Chairman and CEO of UP Fintech stated: "The macro environment remained challenging in the fourth quarter, despite these headwinds, our total revenue for the quarter was US$63.9 million, an increase of 15.2% quarter over quarter and 2.7% year over year. Net income attributable to UP Fintech was US$1.2 million this quarter, a significant improvement versus a net loss of US$5.4 million in the same quarter of last year. Our non-GAAP net income attributable to UP Fintech was US$4.5 million, compared to a non-GAAP net income of US$0.1 million in the same quarter of last year.


In the fourth quarter we added 27,300 funded accounts, bringing our yearly total to 108,100, exceeding our yearly guidance of 100,000. The total number of funded accounts at the end of 2022 reached 781,500. Of the newly funded accounts in the fourth quarter, over 90% came from outside Mainland China. We saw US$1.4 billion net asset inflow this quarter, and total account balance increased 8.1% sequentially to US$14.0 billion. Client quality remains strong, the average net asset inflows of new clients in Singapore during the fourth quarter was nearly US$12,000, further increased from prior quarters, demonstrating our growing presence in this key market and unwavering commitment to providing our clients with exceptional services. In addition, the overall average customer acquisition cost (“CAC”) was US$271 in the fourth quarter, decreased 17% quarter over quarter, demonstrating we keep acquiring high quality clients while being prudent with marketing and branding expenses.


We continued to invest in research and development to better serve our users and improve operating efficiency. Building upon our self-clearing capability and fractional shares functions, we launched the recurring investment feature for U.S. equities, specifically designed for long-term investors and those with a fixed investment budget. In Hong Kong, we are able to offer local users with one of the most competitive pricing packages in the industry with user friendly experience.


Our corporate businesses continued to perform well in the fourth quarter of 2022. During this period, we underwrote a total of 17 U.S. and Hong Kong IPOs, bringing the total number of U.S. and Hong Kong IPOs underwritten for the year to 48. According to Wind data, in 2022, we ranked third globally in terms of deal counts for U.S. IPOs underwriting. Additionally, in our ESOP business, we added 26 new clients in the fourth quarter, bringing the total number of ESOP clients served to 419 as of December 31, 2022."

CERTAIN OTHER FINANCIAL ITEMS

As of December 31, 2022, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and term deposits were US$278.6 million, compared to US$272.1 million as of December 31, 2021.

As of December 31, 2022, the allowance balance of receivables from customers was US$0.7 million compared to US$0.5 million as of December 31, 2021, which was due to an increase in our user base and stock price fluctuation.

Changes of Operating Data Disclosure:

For the purpose of providing more relevant information to facilitate investors’ understanding of our business, the Company had determined to provide the number of contracts traded of options and futures on a quarterly basis starting from the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. Historically, the Company had disclosed total trading volume of stocks, options and futures (notional volume) on an aggregate basis. Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the Company began disclosing the trading volume of stocks on a stand-alone basis and the number of contracts traded of options and futures. As a result of this change, our trading volume as reported for prior quarters will be retrospectively recast to represent trading volume of stocks on a stand-alone basis in addition to trading volume on an aggregate basis. The effect of this recast is illustrated in the table below:

 

 

As of and for the three months ended

23,522.4

 

 

 

20,453.4

 

We have adopted this change because our management has determined that the number of options and futures contracts traded is a more relevant metric for understanding and managing our business than the trading volume of options and futures presented on an aggregate basis with trading volume of stocks. In future disclosures of our earnings, we expect to report trading volume of stocks and the number of options and futures contracts traded in lieu of aggregate trading volume. This change did not affect previously disclosed operating data other than as described above.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use non-GAAP net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech and non-GAAP net loss or income per ADS - diluted as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of the 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 the United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“U.S. GAAP”). We define non-GAAP net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech as net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech excluding share-based compensation, impairment loss from long-term investments and fair value change from convertible bonds. Non-GAAP net loss or income per ADS - diluted is non-GAAP net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech divided by the weighted average number of diluted ADSs.

We present these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. Non-GAAP net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech enables our management to assess our operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation, impairment loss from long-term investments and fair value change from convertible bonds. We also believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors' assessment of our operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expenses that affect our operations. Share-based compensation, impairment loss from long-term investments and fair value change from convertible bonds have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP financial information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternatives to total operating expenses, net loss or income attributable to ordinary shareholders of UP Fintech or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of our operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review these historical non-GAAP financial measures in light of the most directly comparable GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting the usefulness of such measures when analyzing our data comparatively. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
