Second Quarter 2018 Financial Highlights

Commenting on financial results, Tom Casey, LendingClub CFO said, "In the second quarter we delivered both strong topline growth and Adjusted EBITDA profitability as we continue to execute against our strategy."

Originations – Loan originations in the second quarter of 2018 were $2.8 billion, improving 31% compared to the same quarter last year and improving 22% sequentially.

Net Revenue – Net Revenue in the second quarter of 2018 was $177.0 million, improving 27% compared to the same quarter last year and improving 17% sequentially, driven primarily by a higher volume of loan originations in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter last year and compared to the first quarter of 2018.

GAAP Consolidated Net Loss – GAAP Consolidated Net Loss was $(60.8) million for the second quarter of 2018, increasing $35.4 million compared to the same quarter last year and $29.6 million sequentially. The increase in loss was primarily due to $35.6 million of goodwill impairment related to the Company's patient and education finance unit recorded in the second quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA (2) Adjusted EBITDA was $25.7 million in the second quarter of 2018, improving $21.2 million compared to the same quarter last year and improving $10.3 million sequentially.

Contribution Contribution was $85.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, improving $19.4 million compared to the same quarter last year and improving $11.0 million sequentially.

Earnings Per Share (EPS) – Basic and diluted EPS attributable to LendingClub was $(0.14) for the second quarter of 2018, compared to basic and diluted EPS attributable to LendingClub of $(0.06) in the same quarter last year and $(0.07) in the first quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EPS (2) Adjusted EPS was $0.03 for the second quarter of 2018, compared to adjusted EPS of $(0.01) in the same quarter last year and $0.01 in the first quarter of 2018.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Securities Available for Sale – As of June 30, 2018, cash, cash equivalents and securities available for sale totaled $492.0 million, excluding $92.0 million in securities available for sale subject to regulatory risk retention requirements.

Loans Held for Sale by the Company – As the Company continues to build its investor programs, it is using cash to accumulate loans for future transactions. Loans held for sale by the Company at the end of the second quarter of 2018 were $515.3 million, which were financed with $249.2 million of debt outstanding under the Company's warehouse credit facilities.

Outlook

Based on the information available as of August 7, 2018, LendingClub provides the following outlook for the third quarter and full year 2018:

Third Quarter 2018

Total Net Revenue in the range of $175 million to $185 million

GAAP Consolidated Net Loss (3) in the range of $(15) million to $(10) million

Adjusted EBITDA(2)(3) in the range of $18 million to $23 million

Reconciling Items between GAAP Consolidated Net Loss and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA consisting of stock-based compensation of approximately $20 million, and depreciation, impairment, amortization and other net adjustments of approximately $13 million. Outstanding legacy issues are not forecasted in GAAP Net Income (Loss) or Adjusted EBITDA.

Full Year 2018

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

GAAP Consolidated Net Loss (3) in the range of $(124) million to $(109) million

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

Reconciling Items between GAAP Consolidated Net Loss and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA consisting of stock-based compensation of approximately $77 million, expenses related to outstanding legacy issues of $35.5 million and goodwill impairment of $35.6 million that were recognized in the first half of 2018, and depreciation, impairment, 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 GAAP Consolidated Net Loss excludes expenses associated with outstanding legacy issues, as those expenses are neither probable nor estimable as of the time of this earnings release. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS 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 GAAP Consolidated Net Loss as expenses associated with outstanding legacy issues become available for the remainder of the year. For the first half of 2018, we recognized $35.5 million of expenses related to outstanding legacy issues and $35.6 million of goodwill impairment related to the Company's patient and education finance unit, which are now reflected in our full year 2018 GAAP Consolidated Net Loss.

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. 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 non-cash stock-based compensation expense within these captions and (income) loss attributable to noncontrolling interests. Contribution margin is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated by dividing contribution by total net 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, share-based compensation, income tax effects, and other non-operating expenses. 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, as well as certain other expenses that are unrelated to business performance, such as outstanding legacy issues discussed below.

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 and adjusted EPS. 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. Legacy legal expenses incurred in 2017 and prior were generally offset by insurance proceeds, resulting in no net material cumulative impact to earnings. As such, prior period amounts were not reclassified for the change in how we calculate adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS.

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, depreciation, impairment and amortization in our asset base, outstanding legacy issues that will result in elevated legal costs (including ongoing regulatory and government investigations, indemnification obligations and litigation) 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; our ability to achieve cost savings from 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.

Information in this press release is not an offer to sell securities or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.

(1)

Beginning in the third quarter of 2017, contribution and adjusted EBITDA exclude (income) loss attributable to noncontrolling interests. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.


(2)

Represents amounts related to costs for due diligence related to past business acquisitions, including those the Company reviewed and determined not to pursue a transaction, as well as incremental compensation expense required to be paid under the purchase agreement to retain key former shareholder employees of an acquired business.


(3)

Includes expense related to outstanding legacy issues. The second quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2017 also include class action settlement expense. Amounts prior to the fourth quarter of 2017 have not been reclassified because legacy legal expenses incurred in 2017 and prior were generally offset by insurance proceeds, resulting in no net material cumulative impact to earnings.

(3)

Equivalent to the basic and diluted shares reflected in the quarterly EPS calculations.


(4)

Other dilutive equity awards include assumed exercises of unvested stock options, net of assumed repurchases computed under the treasury method, which were excluded from GAAP net loss per share as their impact would have been anti-dilutive.
