February 10, 2022

Exceeds Second Quarter Financial Outlook and Raises Outlook for Fiscal Year 2022

Drives Network Scale by Increasing Active Merchants from 8,000 to 168,000 and Active Consumers by 150% Year over Year to 11 million

Accelerates Year-Over-Year GMV Growth to 115% from 84% in Q1 2022

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 10, 2022-- Affirm Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFRM) (“Affirm” or the "Company”), the payment network that empowers consumers and helps merchants drive growth, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2022 second quarter ended December 31, 2021.

“Affirm's strong growth accelerated this quarter, reflecting the key advantages of our superior technology, and commitment to putting people first,” said Max Levchin, Founder and CEO of Affirm. “We more than doubled gross merchandise volume year over year. Over the last 12 months, we have added nearly seven million active consumers to our network, while enabling 168,000 merchant partners to better serve their customers.”

Levchin continued, “Millions of people see Affirm as a smart way to pay because of our honest, transparent, and customizable payment terms. Merchants recognize our ability to help them drive growth and deliver the experience consumers are demanding at checkout. We remain focused on extending our lead as we scale enterprise partnerships and benefit from self-reinforcing network effects. With our talented team of Affirmers, we have never been more excited to expand the impact of our mission.”

Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2022 Operating Highlights:

All comparisons are made versus the same period in fiscal year 2021 unless otherwise stated.

  • Gross merchandise volume ("GMV") for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $4.5 billion, an increase of 115%. Excluding the impact from the completion of the initial rollout of Affirm's interest-bearing solution with Amazon in November, GMV doubled.
  • Active merchants increased from 8,000 to 168,000, driven primarily by the adoption of Shop Pay Installments by merchants on Shopify's platform.
  • Active consumers grew 150% to 11.2 million and increased by 2.5 million, or 29%, compared to the period ended September 30, 2021.
  • Transactions per active consumer increased 15% to 2.5 as of December 31, 2021.

Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Highlights:1

All comparisons are made versus the same period in fiscal year 2021 unless otherwise stated.

  • Total revenue was $361.0 million, a 77% increase, driven by increases in network revenue resulting from GMV growth, higher interest income related to growth in loans held for investment, gains on sales of loans due to higher forward flow volume, and greater servicing income as the platform portfolio scaled.
  • Total revenue less transaction costs1 increased 93% to $183.6 million, primarily as a result of the strong revenue growth, as well as slower growth in transaction costs as the Company achieved scale efficiencies. In the period, provision for credit losses increased by $40.1 million from the quarter ended December 31, 2020. This increase was primarily driven by a release of excess loan allowance in the prior year period and a more normal credit environment in the quarter ended December 31, 2021 compared to the prior year.
  • Operating loss was $196.2 million compared to $26.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, and includes an $82.0 million increase in stock-based compensation following the Company's January 2021 initial public offering, as well as investments in product and engineering talent and marketing to realize the Company's growth opportunities.
  • Adjusted operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $7.9 million, compared to adjusted operating income of $3.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2022 was $159.7 million compared to $26.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, and includes the above-mentioned increase in stock-based compensation following the Company's IPO, as well as $34.0 million of additional expense recognized based on the change in fair value of the contingent consideration liability associated with the Company's acquisition of PayBright driven by increases in the value of its common stock.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Completed the initial rollout of Affirm's first integrated point-of-sale solution at Amazon in the U.S. in November 2021.
  • Introduced Affirm's new SuperApp and browser extension in January and Cash Back Rewards in December 2021.
  • Issued $1.725 billion in zero-coupon senior convertible notes in November 2021. The offering provides the Company with significant growth capital at an attractive borrowing cost, while minimizing shareholder dilution.
  • Replaced the Company’s prior corporate credit facility with a new $165 million revolving credit facility on February 4, 2022. The new facility provides the Company with improved economics, increased financial covenant flexibility, and lower fees.
  • Completed the Company’s first static (non-revolving) securitization designed to fund longer-term, interest-bearing financing programs on February 9, 2022. The deal, which is comprised of consumer loans totaling over $400 million, priced in early February.

Michael Linford, CFO of Affirm, commented, “We are proud of the results our team delivered this quarter leveraging our superior technology, proprietary underwriting, and robust capital markets expertise. We expanded access to more people and delivered positive credit outcomes, while both loosening the credit box and continuing our responsible approach to underwriting every transaction. The successful convertible note offering also provides additional flexibility to invest in our growth and extend our advantages. Looking ahead, we remain highly confident in our ability to drive hyper growth and attractive unit economics at scale.”

Key Operating Metrics

  • Gross Merchandise Volume ("GMV") - The Company defines GMV as the total dollar amount of all transactions on the Affirm platform during the applicable period, net of refunds. GMV does not represent revenue earned by the Company. However, the Company believes that GMV is a useful operating metric to both the Company and investors in assessing the volume of transactions that take place on the Company's platform, which is an indicator of the success of the Company's merchants and the strength of that platform.
  • Active Consumers - The Company defines an active consumer as a consumer who engages in at least one transaction on its platform during the 12 months prior to the measurement date. The Company believes that active consumers is a useful operating metric to both the Company and investors in assessing consumer adoption and engagement and measuring the size of the Company's network.
  • Transactions per Active Consumer - Transactions per active consumer is defined as the average number of transactions that an active consumer has conducted on its platform during the 12 months prior to the measurement date. The Company believes that transactions per active consumer is a useful operating metric to both the Company and investors in assessing consumer engagement and repeat usage, which is an indicator of the value of the Company's network.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

  • Transaction Costs - The Company defines transaction costs as the sum of loss on loan purchase commitment, provision for credit losses, funding costs, and processing and servicing expense. The Company believes that transaction costs is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors of those costs, which vary with the volume of transactions processed on the Company's platform.
  • Transaction Costs as a Percentage of GMV - The Company defines transaction costs as a percentage of GMV as transaction costs, as defined above, as a percentage of GMV, as defined above. The Company believes that transaction costs as a percentage of GMV is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors as it approximates the variable cost efficiency of transactions processed on the Company's platform.
  • Revenue Less Transaction Costs - The Company defines revenue less transaction costs as GAAP total revenue less transaction costs, as defined above. The Company believes that revenue less transaction costs is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors of the economic value generated by transactions processed on the Company's platform.
  • Revenue Less Transaction Costs as a Percentage of GMV - The Company defines revenue less transaction costs as a percentage of GMV as revenue less transaction costs, as defined above, as a percentage of GMV, as defined above. The Company believes that revenue less transaction costs as a percentage of GMV is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors of the unit economics of transactions processed on the Company's platform.
  • Adjusted Operating (Loss) Income - The Company defines adjusted operating (loss) income as its GAAP operating loss, excluding: (a) depreciation and amortization; (b) stock-based compensation included in GAAP operating loss; (c) the expense related to warrants and share-based payments granted to enterprise partners; and (d) certain other costs as set forth in the reconciliation of adjusted operating (loss) income to GAAP operating loss included in the tables at the end of this press release. Adjusted operating (loss) income is presented because the Company believes that it is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors for evaluating its operating performance and that it facilitates period to period comparisons of the Company's results of operations as the items excluded generally are not a function of the Company's operating performance.
  • Adjusted Operating Margin - The Company defines adjusted operating margin as its adjusted operating (loss) income, as defined above, as a percentage of its GAAP total revenue. Similar to adjusted operating (loss) income, the Company believes that adjusted operating margin is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors for evaluating its operating performance and that it facilitates period to period comparisons of the Company's results of operations as the items excluded generally are not a function of the Company's operating performance.
  • Total Platform Portfolio - The Company defines total platform portfolio as the unpaid principal balance outstanding of all loans facilitated through its platform as of the balance sheet date, including loans held for investment, loans held for sale, and loans owned by third-parties. The Company believes that total platform portfolio is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors in assessing the scale of funding requirements for the Company's network.
  • Equity Capital Required - The Company defines equity capital required as the sum of the balance of loans held for investment and loans held for sale, less the balance of funding debt and notes issued by securitization trusts as of the balance sheet date. The Company believes that equity capital required is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors in assessing the amount of the Company's total platform portfolio that the Company funds with its own equity capital.
  • Equity Capital Required as a Percentage of Total Platform Portfolio - The Company defines equity capital required as a percentage of total platform portfolio as equity capital required, as defined above, as a percentage of total platform portfolio, as defined above. The Company believes that equity capital required as a percentage of total platform portfolio is a useful financial measure to both the Company and investors in assessing the proportion of outstanding loans on the Company's platform that are funded by the Company's own equity capital.

Supplemental Performance Indicators

  • Active Merchants - The Company defines an active merchant as a merchant which engages in at least one transaction on its platform during the 12 months prior to the measurement date. The Company believes that active merchants is a useful performance indicator to both the Company and investors because it measures the reach of the Company's network.
  • Total Revenue as a Percentage of GMV - The Company defines total revenue as a percentage of GMV as GAAP total revenue as a percentage of GMV, as defined above. The Company believes that total revenue as a percentage of GMV is a useful performance indicator to both the Company and investors of the revenue generated on a transaction processed on the Company's platform.
  • Allowance for Credit Losses as a Percentage of Loans Held for Investment - The Company defines allowance for credit losses as a percentage of loans held for investment as GAAP allowance for credit losses as a percentage of GAAP loans held for investment. The Company believes that allowance for credit losses as a percentage of loans held for investment is a useful performance indicator to both the Company and investors of the future estimated credit losses on the Company's outstanding loans held for investment.

     

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), the Company presents the following non-GAAP financial measures: transaction costs, transaction costs as a percentage of GMV, revenue less transaction costs, revenue less transaction costs as a percentage of GMV, adjusted operating loss, adjusted operating margin, total platform portfolio, equity capital required, and equity capital required as a percentage of total platform portfolio. Definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures are included under "Key Operating Metrics, Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Supplemental Performance Indicators" above, and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables below.

Summaries of the reasons why the Company believes that the presentation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to the Company and investors are included under "Key Operating Metrics, Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Supplemental Performance Indicators" above. In addition, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and for evaluating the effectiveness of its business strategy. However, these non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only, and these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Revenue less transaction costs and revenue less transaction costs as a percentage of GMV are not intended to be measures of operating profit or loss as they exclude key operating expenses such as technology and data analytics, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expenses;
  • Adjusted operating loss and adjusted operating margin exclude certain recurring, non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization, although the assets being depreciated and amortized may need to be replaced in the future, and share-based compensation expense, which has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense and an important part of the Company's compensation strategy; and
  • Other companies, including companies in the same industry, may calculate these non-GAAP financial measures differently from how the Company calculates them or not at all, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Accordingly, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP, and these non-GAAP measures should be considered along with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the business.
