GreenSky, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

Full Year Transaction Volume of $5.5 Billion;
Net Income of $28.7 Million; Diluted EPS of $0.14;
Adjusted EBITDA of $105.9 Million
Fourth Quarter Net Income of $23.4 Million; Diluted EPS of $0.11 

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 10, 2021-- GreenSky, Inc. (NASDAQ: GSKY), a leading financial technology company Powering Commerce at the Point of Sale®, reported financial results today for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

“The momentum witnessed at the end of last year has continued into 2021 and we are optimistic with respect to transaction volume growth and lower costs in the upcoming year,” said David Zalik, GreenSky Chairman and CEO. “Despite a challenging year, we reported 2020 revenue in line with our 2019 results, and I am extremely proud of the dedication and commitment of our associates who delivered annual transaction volume in excess of $5.5 billion. Looking ahead, I am encouraged by the improving consumer credit trends being observed, and I am cautiously optimistic that 2021 performance will likely be better than initially estimated. GreenSky is poised to deliver transaction volume growth in excess of 15% this year and we continue to make solid progress on strategic initiatives outside of our core home improvement business and expect to see the results of those strategies over the coming months.”

“During the last four months of the year, GreenSky secured over $1 billion in new funding, demonstrating the successful roll-out of our diversified funding model,” said Andrew Kang, Chief Financial Officer. “We set a goal to gain access to new sources of liquidity, and we now have a proven track record of asset sales to both institutional investors and banks. I am very excited to also announce that earlier this month, we executed a $1 billion forward flow sale agreement with a leading life insurance company that will further support our transaction volume growth into 2022. As market pricing has improved and restored to pre-pandemic levels, the economics of our recent sales and forward flow agreement are now consistent with GreenSky’s historical cost of funds, in contrast to our initial sale in 2020. With tailwinds in funding and optimism regarding credit performance, we are raising our 2021 net income and Adjusted EBITDA guidance.”

Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Highlights:

  • Transaction Volume: Transaction volume in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $1.3 billion compared to $1.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2019. The change in year-over-year volumes continued to be largely driven by the COVID-19 impact on our elective healthcare business, and ongoing supply chain issues that shifted home improvement volumes from the fourth quarter of 2020 into 2021. In addition, our average ticket size in 2020 increased more than 10% from prior year.
  • Transaction Fee Rate: The average transaction fee rate for the fourth quarter of 2020 was 7.2%, an increase of 40 basis points from 6.8% in the fourth quarter of 2019. For 2020, the average transaction fee rate was 7.1% compared to 6.8% in 2019, reflecting continued demand for certain products offered by our merchants and consumer preferences for promotional financing.
  • Revenue: Fourth quarter revenue was $128.8 million compared to $135.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $525.6 million compared to $532.6 million during the year ended December 31, 2019.
    • Transaction fee revenue was $93.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to $100.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and $393.1 million for the year compared to $405.9 million in 2019, as the impact of the halt in elective medical procedures during 2020 was partially offset by an improvement in the transaction fee rate.
    • Total servicing revenue for the quarter and full year 2020 reflect an increase in servicing fees earned on GreenSky's $9.5 billion servicing portfolio and by a lower contribution from changes in the fair value of our servicing assets.
      • In the fourth quarter, our servicing fees were consistent with the same quarter in 2019. For the year, our servicing fees increased by $21.9 million driven by an increase in the average servicing fee and the increase in the size of the portfolio.
      • Our servicing revenues from changes in the fair value of our servicing asset contributed $0.4 million to revenues in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $5.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year 2020, the fair value change of our servicing assets contributed $0.3 million in servicing revenues compared to $30.5 million in 2019.
    • Interest and other revenue increased to $6.6 million for the quarter and to $17.1 million for the full year, up from $2.1 million and $3.0 million, respectively, primarily due to increased interest income earned on loan receivables held for sale in our warehouse facility.
  • Cost of Revenue: Fourth quarter cost of revenue was $78.5 million, compared to $69.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Full year 2020 cost of revenue was $307.9 million compared to $249.9 million in 2019.
    • We incurred $29.7 million in loan sales costs in the fourth quarter of 2020, which were offset by a $12.6 million reduction in bank waterfall costs (the fair value of the FCR liability) in cost of revenue, and $7.6 million reduction of the non-cash mark-to-market expense related to sales facilitation obligations in the fourth quarter of 2020.
    • For the year, we had $72.4 million in loan sales costs and $10.7 million non-cash mark-to-market expense related to sales facilitation obligations, offset by a $23.4 million decrease in bank waterfall costs (reflected in the fair value of the FCR liability).
    • Loan sales in 2020 provided an important diversification to our funding in the second half of the year while maintaining our targeted level of lifetime profitability for these transaction volumes.
  • Net Income and Diluted Earnings per Share: For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company recognized net income of $23.4 million compared to net income of $5.3 million for the same period in 2019, which resulted in a diluted earnings per share of $0.11, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.03 in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company recognized net income of $28.7 million compared to net income of $96.0 million for the same period in 2019, which resulted in a diluted earnings per share of $0.14, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.49 for the year ended December 31, 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1): Fourth quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA was $10.2 million compared to $23.7 million in the fourth quarter 2019. For fiscal year 2020, Adjusted EBITDA increased by 1% to $105.9 million from $105.0 million in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter of 2020 was 8% compared to Adjusted EBITDA of 17% in the fourth quarter of 2019. Fiscal year 2020 and 2019 Adjusted EBITDA margin were both 20%.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. Refer to “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for important additional information.

Business Update:

  • Merchants. For the full year 2020, we added more exclusive relationships with merchants who are expected to generate $10 million or more in annual transaction volumes than in any prior year. Importantly, we recently renewed our agreement with our largest single merchant, The Home Depot.
  • Funding Diversification. During the fourth quarter, GreenSky executed asset sales of approximately $685 million, and increased the Company's committed warehouse funding to $555 million. Subsequent to year-end, the Company closed a $1 billion, 1 year forward flow agreement and executed an incremental upfront asset sale of approximately $135 million with a leading life insurance company.
  • Credit quality. Our consumer credit profile in the fourth quarter and full year 2020 continues to be very high quality. For loans originated on our platform during 2020, the weighted average FICO credit score was 780. Consumers with FICO scores over 700 comprised over 88% of the loan servicing portfolio as of December 31, 2020.
    • The 30-day delinquency rate as of December 31, 2020 was 0.99%, an improvement of 39 basis points over December 31, 2019, and an improvement of 5 basis points compared to the third quarter of 2020.
    • The balances of loans in COVID-19 payment deferral status represented approximately 0.8% of the total loans serviced by our platform as of December 31, 2020.

2021 Guidance:

  • GreenSky's updated 2021 guidance is as follows:
    • Transaction volumes of $6.2 to $6.5 billion;
    • Revenues of approximately $584 million;
    • Net Income of +/-$0;
    • Adjusted EBITDA of $45 to $55 million; and
    • Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 8% to 10%.

Conference Call and Webcast:

A live webcast of the conference call, together with a slide presentation that includes supplemental financial information and reconciliations of certain non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures, will be accessible through the Company's Investor Relations website at http://investors.greensky.com.

These risks and uncertainties include those risks described in GreenSky's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and include, but are not limited to, risks related to the extent and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the Company, its bank partners and merchants, GreenSky program borrowers, loan demand (including, in particular, for elective healthcare procedures), the capital markets (including the Company's ability to obtain additional funding or facilitate additional whole loan or loan participation sales) and the economy in general; the Company's ability to retain existing, and attract new, merchants and bank partners or other funding sources, including the risk that one or more bank partners do not renew their funding commitments or reduce existing commitments; its future financial performance, including trends in revenue, cost of revenue, gross profit or gross margin, operating expenses, and free cash flow; changes in market interest rates; increases in loan delinquencies; its ability to operate successfully in a highly regulated industry; the outcome of litigation and regulatory matters; the effect of management changes; cyberattacks and security vulnerabilities in its products and services; and the Company's ability to compete successfully in highly competitive markets.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release presents information about the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as supplements to the results provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are key financial indicators of our business performance over the long term and provide useful information regarding whether cash provided by operating activities is sufficient to maintain and grow our business. We believe that this methodology for determining Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin can provide useful supplemental information to help investors better understand the economics of our platform.

We are presenting these non-GAAP measures to assist investors in evaluating our financial performance and because we believe that these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core financial performance over multiple periods with other companies in our industry.

These non-GAAP measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only. These non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the analysis of other GAAP financial measures, such as net income. The non-GAAP measures GreenSky uses may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided below for each of the fiscal periods indicated.
