Attraction Marketing System

COPPELL, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE )–Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), a global health and wellness company committed to transforming lives to make a better world, today announced financial results for its first quarter 2016.

First Quarter Results

First quarter net sales for 2016 were $40.7 million, a decrease of $3.7 million or 8.3% as compared to $44.4 million in the first quarter of 2015. Our net sales declined 3.6% on a constant dollar basis (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures, below); unfavorable foreign exchange caused a $2.1 million decline in GAAP net sales as compared to the same period in 2015. Income from operations was $0.5 million for the first quarter 2016, as compared to $2.5 million in the same period in 2015. Net income was $0.6 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2016, as compared to $1.1 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2015.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, Mannatech’s operations outside of the Americas accounted for approximately 60.7% of Mannatech’s consolidated net sales.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, Asia/Pacific net sales decreased by $1.3 million, or 5.7%, to $21.4 million, as compared to $22.7 million for the same period in 2015. Net sales comparisons for the first quarter were affected by the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. In constant dollars (a non-GAAP financial measure), first quarter 2016 net sales would have been $1.3 million higher, or $22.7 million. The currency impact was primarily due to depreciation of the Korean Won, Australian Dollar, and New Zealand Dollar. Active associates and members, who have purchased products and/or packs in the Asia/Pacific region during the last 12 months, have increased 1.9%.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, net sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”) decreased by $0.3 million, or 8.3%, to $3.3 million, as compared to $3.6 million for the same period in 2015. In constant dollars (a non-GAAP financial measure), net sales for the first quarter 2016 would have been $0.7 million higher, or $4.0 million. The currency impact was primarily due to the depreciation of the South African Rand, British Pound and Euro. When first quarter of 2016 is compared to the same period during 2015, recruiting of associates in the EMEA region increased 16.4%, and active associates and members that have purchased products and/or a pack in the EMEA region during the past 12 months increased 6.9%.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, net sales for the Americas decreased by $2.1 million, or 11.6%, to $16.0 million, as compared to $18.1 million for the same period in 2015. When first quarter of 2016 is compared to the same period during 2015, recruiting of associates in the Americas region increased 13.6%.; however, there was a decrease in active independent associates who have purchased products and/or a pack in the Americas region during the past 12 months.

The approximate number of new and continuing independent associate and member positions held by individuals in Mannatech’s network and associated with purchases of our packs or products as of March 31, 2016 and 2015 were approximately 218,000 and 230,000, respectively. Recruiting decreased 6.7% in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the first quarter of 2015 as increases in the EMEA and Americas regions were offset by a decrease in the Asia/Pacific region. The number of new independent associate and member positions in the company’s network for the first quarter of 2016 was approximately 23,800, as compared to 25,500 for the same period in 2015.

Mannatech’s cash and cash equivalents increased by approximately $1.6 million to a balance of $33.6 million at March 31, 2016 as compared to $32.0 million at December 31, 2015. Also, total shareholder’s equity increased by $1.4 million to a balance of $40.0 million, as compared to $38.6 million at December 31, 2015.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of constant currency measures. We disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations. The constant currency figures are financial measures used by management to provide investors an additional perspective on trends. Although we believe the non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors’ understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an exclusive alternative to accompanying GAAP financial measures.

Conference Call

Mannatech will host a conference call to discuss the quarter’s results with investors on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 10 a.m. CDT, 11 a.m. EDT. The live call will be webcast and can be accessed on Mannatech’s website at http://ir.mannatech.com .
