SOLOWIN HOLDINGS Reports Unaudited Financial Results for The First Six Months of Fiscal Year 2024

Revenue Up 126.4% Year-Over-Year

HONG KONG, March 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- SOLOWIN HOLDINGS ("SOLOWIN" or the "Company", or "we") (Nasdaq: SWIN), a securities brokerage company that offers comprehensive financial services primarily to Chinese investors, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first six months of fiscal year 2024 ended September 30, 2023.

Mr. Shing Tak Tam, Chief Executive Officer of SOLOWIN, commented, "It is with great pride that I present our operational and financial achievements for the first time as a public company for the first six months ended September 30, 2023. Despite the sluggish economic recovery plagued by the high interest rates, inflation, inadequate investor confidence and market liquidity, we have achieved a remarkable 126.4% year-on-year revenue growth to $2.64 million. Our net income also experienced a significant increase to $1.25 million, which indicated our enhanced profitability and efficient response to market challenges. Through our subsidiary licensed by the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, we've been dedicated to providing comprehensive financial services and premium user experiences on our one-stop platform."

Mr. Tam continued, "Amid the economic uncertainty, our dynamic and experienced leadership team has steered the company towards innovation in our product and service offerings, which caters to a diverse client base and has fortified our market position. Our commitment to delivering a wide selection of innovative, secure, and high-quality services has gained wide recognition in the field, propelling the growth of our customer base. Consequently, our investment advisory and asset management services enjoy a rapid expansion by 63.3% and 248.3%, respectively. The successful IPO and listing of our ordinary shares on Nasdaq also mark a milestone in our accelerated course of global expansion and growth. As we look to the second half of fiscal year 2024, we are braced for persistent challenges and remain committed to developing innovative product and service offerings. We are confident in generating enduring returns for our stakeholders, and we will stick to our vision in offering integrated financial services infrastructure for next-generation investors."

First Six Months of Fiscal Year 2024 Financial Results

Revenue

Revenue increased by 126.4% to $2.64 million for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $1.17 million for the same period of last year. The increase in revenue was mainly driven by the revenue from asset management services and referral services.

  • Revenue from securities brokerage commissions and handling income decreased to $16,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $55,000 for the same period of last year. The main reason for this decrease was due to the poor equity market performance in Hong Kong and the under expected economic recovery from COVID-19, which led to lower investor confidence and lower liquidity in the Hong Kong equity market. The decrease in the number of revenue-generating clients from approximately 1,565 on September 30, 2022 to 1,330 on September 30, 2023 also contributed to the decrease in revenue from securities brokerage.
  • Revenue from investment advisory fees increased by 63.3% to $1.56 million for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $0.96 million for the same period of last year. The increase was primarily due to the increase in value-added services to institutional clients and referral of institutional clients.
  • Revenue from asset management income-related parties increased by 248.3% to $498,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $143,000 for the same period of last year. The increase was primarily due to increase of performance fees derived from Solomon Capital Fund SPC - Solomon Capital SP2 and Blue Tulip Capital SP, resulting from the increased investor subscriptions and impressive fund performance for the six months ended September 30, 2023.
  • Revenue from interest income increased by 30.8% to $17,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $13,000 for the same period of last year. The interest income received from cash rolling balance clients in relation to the securities brokerage services.
  • Revenue from referral income increased to $550,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, we did not have referral income for the same period of last year. The referral income was generated by referring investors to our corporate customers or brokers for IPO subscriptions in oversea markets. We acted as an agent and earned referral income in a percentage of subscription amount stipulated in the agreement.

Expenses

Expenses decreased to $1.30 million for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $1.42 million for the same period of last year. The decrease was mainly due to decrease in general and administrative expenses for the six months ended September 30, 2023.

  • Commission and handling expenses decreased to $4,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $6,000 for the same period of last year. The decrease was in line with our decrease in handling income.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased to $1,300,000 for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from $1,412,000 for the same period of last year. Our general and administrative expenses were mainly related to the expenses related to information technology expenses, staff cost, office lease expense, office supplies and upkeep expenses, legal and professional feesand other miscellaneous administrative expenses.

Income (Loss) from Operations

Income from operations increased to $1.34 million for the six months ended September 30, 2023, from loss from operations of $0.25 million for the same period of last year.

Other Income

O t her income for the six months ended September 30, 2022 mainly consisted of subsidies from The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government ("HKSAR"). From May to July 2022, the HKSAR launched the 2022 Employment Support Scheme under the Anti-Epidemic Fund to provide wage subsidies to employers aiming to retain current employees or even hire more staff when the business revives as soon as the epidemic situation permits. No such subsidies were received during the six months ended September 30, 2023.
