In August 2019, 9F completed its initial public offering (“IPO”), selling 8.9 million American Depositary Receipts at $9.50 per ADR.
On September 27, 2019, 9F reported its second quarter 2019 financial results for the period that ended prior to the IPO. The Company stated that its net accounts receivable increased from RMB277 million as of March 31, 2019 to RMB858 million as of June 30, 2019, a purported 210% sequential increase. On this news, 9F shares fell $0.59, or 5%, to close at $10.35 per ADR on September 27, 2019.
On December 5, 2019, 9F reported its third quarter 2019 financial results for the quarter during which the IPO had been conducted. The Company stated that its net accounts receivables had increased more than ten-fold from RMB180 million as of December 31, 2018 to RMB1.9 billion as of September 30, 2019. On this news, 9F shares fell $0.50, or nearly 5%, over two consecutive trading sessions to close at $9.60 per ADS on December 6, 2019.
On June 12, 2020, 9F revealed an ongoing dispute with Property and Casualty Company Limited (“PICC”) involving RMB2.2 billion in unpaid service fees. The Company stated that RMB1.4 billion in service fees that had previously been recorded as accounts receivable were now recognized as fully impaired.
On June 17, 2020, 9F described the devastating consequences of the Company’s dispute with PICC, including that the two entities “are pursuing legal actions against each other” and that 9F sought damages of approximately RMB2.3 billion from PICC to cover the outstanding service fees and related late payment losses. Additionally, 9F had “suspended [its] cooperation with PICC on new loans under [its] direct lending program since December 2019 ,” causing total net revenues to decrease by 54.4% year-over-year. 9F shares fell $0.31 per ADR, or nearly 5%, to close at $6.00 per ADR on June 17, 2020.
On June 24, 2020, the Company reported a valuation allowance for the accounts receivable from PICC of more than $1.4 billion. 9F shares fell $0.57, or 14%, to close at $4.05 per ADR on June 25, 2020.
On September 29, 2020, 9F announced its unaudited financial results for the first half of 2020 ended June 30, 2020. The Company disclosed that its loan origination volume had fallen over 90%, the number of active borrowers utilizing their platform had decreased over 80% and the Company’s total net revenues had plummeted over 60% during the first half of 2020 as compared to the latter half of 2019. On this news, 9F shares fell $0.20, or 18%, to close at $0.91 per ADR on September 29, 2020.
