Affirm Reports Fiscal Year 2022 Third Quarter Results


SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 third quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“We continue to deliver strong growth with attractive unit economics as we rapidly scale our network,” said Max Levchin, Founder and CEO of Affirm. “The number of active merchants on our platform grew from 12,000 to 207,000 year over year, and active consumers increased 137% to 12.7 million people. The secular trend toward adopting honest financial products and our ability to drive strong demand among merchants resulted in GMV growing by 73% year over year. We are especially proud of the re-engagement we are driving with consumers as 81% of our transactions were from repeat Affirm users. This represents our highest repeat transaction rate we have ever reported.”

Levchin continued, “As we advance our strategy to drive growth, maintain attractive unit economics, and deploy superior risk management, we plan to achieve a sustained profitability run rate on an adjusted operating income basis by July 1, 2023.”

Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2022 Operating Highlights:

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

  • GMV was $3.9 billion, an increase of 73%.
  • Active merchants increased from 12,000 to 207,000, driven primarily by the adoption of Shop Pay Installments by merchants on Shopify’s platform.
  • Active consumers grew 137% to 12.7 million and increased by 1.5 million, or 13%, on a sequential basis compared to as of December 31, 2021.
  • Total transactions grew to 10.5 million, an increase of 162%.
  • Transactions per active consumer increased 19% to 2.7 as of March 31, 2022, and 81% of total transactions were from repeat Affirm consumers.

Third 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 $354.8 million, a 54% increase, driven by continued GMV and merchant network revenue growth, higher interest income related to mix shift towards shorter term loans with greater relative loan discount, greater gains on sales of loans due to higher loan sale volume, and greater servicing income as the loan portfolio held by third-parties scaled.
  • Total revenue less transaction costs increased 37% to $182.4 million, primarily as a result of strong revenue growth, funding cost efficiencies, and a decrease in loss on loan purchase commitment, offset by increased provision for credit losses. Provision for credit losses grew from negative $1.1 million a year ago to $66.3 million, as the year-ago figure included a significant release of excess COVID-related loan allowance, while this year’s figure reflects the more normalized credit environment. Excluding the provision for credit losses, revenue less transaction costs increased by $116.1 million or 88%.
  • Operating loss was $226.6 million compared to $209.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 driven by continued investment in sales and marketing, which includes $102.4 million of expense related to warrants granted to Amazon in November 2021. Partially offsetting the increase in sales and marketing expense was a decrease in stock-based compensation expense of $81.3 million compared to the prior-year period, which included higher stock-based compensation expense due to the Company’s January 2021 initial public offering.
  • Adjusted operating income was $4.0 million, compared to adjusted operating income of $4.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Net loss was $54.7 million compared to $287.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021. The improved loss was primarily driven by a gain of $136.2 million recognized in the current-year period, based on the change in fair value of the contingent consideration liability associated with the Company’s acquisition of PayBright, compared with a loss of $78.5 million in the prior-year period, driven by a decrease in the value of its common stock.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Affirm announced today a multi-year extension of its partnership in the U.S. with Shopify. The expanded agreement cements Affirm as the exclusive pay-over-time provider for Shop Pay Installments in the U.S. Beginning this summer, all eligible U.S. merchants offering Shop Pay Installments will have access to Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout™, which dynamically offers biweekly and monthly payment options side-by-side in a single integrated checkout. Consumers will be able to use Shop Pay Installments for cart sizes that range from $50 to $17,500, with payment terms ranging from six weeks to 12 months, and biweekly interest-free payments to monthly simple interest-bearing installments. Additional details are included in a Form 8-K filing that will be available here.
  • Affirm entered into a strategic partnership with Stripe that will make Affirm’s Adaptive Checkout™ available to all Stripe users in the U.S., unlocking streamlined distribution to millions of merchants and consumers.
  • The Company saw GMV growth accelerate in categories with pent-up demand, such as Travel and Ticketing, which grew by 122% from the third quarter of fiscal 2021, and 50% on a sequential basis from the second quarter of fiscal 2022.
  • On May 4, 2022, the Company completed a $500 million asset-backed securitization. The offering included five classes of fixed-rate notes, all of which were rated by DBRS-Morningstar, with assigned ratings ranging between AAA (sf) and BB (sf). The notes were placed with a diversified mix of institutional investors in a private offering pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. This was the Company’s first transaction to achieve a AAA rating on a class of notes, and represented Affirm’s ninth asset-backed security transaction since launching its program in early fiscal year 2021. 

Michael Linford, CFO of Affirm, commented, “Our strong performance demonstrates our ability to drive growth with attractive unit economics, despite volatile market conditions. We outperformed our outlook, especially on revenue less transaction costs, as we rapidly scale our network while driving operating leverage and greater capital efficiencies. With our superior technology, capital markets expertise, and business model advantage of underwriting every individual transaction before extending access to credit, Affirm is well-positioned for continued growth and long-term value creation.”

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 Income (Loss) – The Company defines adjusted operating income (loss) 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 income (loss) to GAAP operating loss included in the tables at the end of this press release. Adjusted operating income (loss) 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 income (loss), as defined above, as a percentage of its GAAP total revenue. Similar to adjusted operating income (loss), 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 Transactions – The Company defines total transactions as the total number of unique transactions on the Affirm platform during the applicable period. The Company believes that total transactions is a useful performance indicator to both the Company and investors because it measures the frequency of consumer engagement, as demonstrated by the total number of unique transactions.
  • 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 income (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 income (loss) and adjusted operating margin exclude certain recurring, non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization, the expense related to warrants and share-based payments granted to enterprise partners, and share-based compensation expense, which have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, significant recurring expenses; 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.
