MLM Company Review: AL International aka Youngevity & Javalution Well On Their Way To $150 Million!

90-for-life-video-logo

I started covering A.L. International last year when the merger of Youngevity and Javalution formed this new company. At the time in reviewing their financials I was pretty sure they would hit $100 million by the end of 2012. Well I may be off by $30 million, but 2013 should bring a whole new dynamic to this powerful and growing company.

You can red the full report from Opus Group Research by clicking here.

Combination of national and foreign direct marketing engine fueled by increasingly wide product line in rapidly growing Health & Wellness sector – all spearheaded by a unique niche in fortified coffee market – should grow revenues well beyond the $100 million mark

• With Q2 2012 results now released, AL International has completed its first full year as a newly created company and, more importantly, one of the few “Pink Sheet” listed equities that offer investors fully audited accounts prepared under GAAP. The recent Mayer, Hoffman & McCann audit is a major step towards management’s eventual goal of taking the company off the PinkSheets and re-listing on the Bulletin Board, and ultimately to even a higher exchange. . We believe the listing on a higher, fully reporting exchange will be a major catalyst for the stock introducing the company to a vastly broader investor market.

• On the upside, in Q2 2012 the firm’s top line revenues and EBITDA more than doubled compared to Q2 2011 – far exceeding our initial estimates made last February. In fact, AL International is now past the half-way mark of becoming a $150 million annual revenue company by 2014 – which was our most aggressively optimistic, best case scenario at the start of 2012. For start-up micro cap firms, particularly in the highly volatile Heath and Wellness sector, we believe that revenue growth is the key driver behind share price and a major factor in deciding which firms stagnate and flounder as opposed to which firms can potentially become the next Herbalife.

• On the downside, the firm recorded a substantial Net Loss of $1.2 million for the first half of 2012.
However, this loss is due almost exclusively to a non cash accounting charge: the ongoing write down of net intangible assets following the creation of the company last year. As a point in fact, operating cash flow in Q2 2012 dramatically increased some 12-fold from Q2 last year after the creation of the company involving the reverse merger of its major components Youngevity Essential Life Sciences and Javalution. Further, cash and cash equivalents has more than doubled since the start of the year and EBITDA of $472,000 for Q2 2012 has already started to aggressively bounce back from an EDITDA loss of $134,000 at the end of Q1.

• We are maintaining our Price to Sales (P/S) based fair valuation that suggests a price range for AL International stock at between $0.45 and $1.54. In spite of the recently reported losses 1H 2012, threat of significant stock dilution and current weakness in liquidity, we believe the completion of the GAAP audit by a Top 10 US accounting firm, eventual listing on a larger exchange and continued aggressive growth in revenues since the merger last year will represent a major catalyst for a stock price re-rating. We rate the company a Speculative Buy, acknowledging that there are risks to our projections at this early stage of a newly formed direct sales company which is spending aggressively to build brand equity and rapidly expand its product line and distribution network in both the US and Asia..

Growth Spearheaded by Fortified Coffee

AL International’s lead coffee product line is Javalution, which brings to the table an established and readymade entry-way into one the hottest growing consumer segments today: specialty fortified coffee including branded and private label. Private label beverages now account for over 17% of the $500 billion-plus US market for food and beverages. On top of this is the added marketing twist that the Javalution product line is produced and marketed to appeal specifically to the Health & Wellness consumer segment. The rapidly emerging market for fortified coffee has barely been touched. Judging by the explosive growth of such brands as Sobe, Vitamin Water, and MonaVie, there is clearly enormous upside potential to build a national as well as international distribution business spearheaded initially by fortified coffee. The coffee segment makes up 12% of the company’s total revenue.

Direct Sales growth driven by 90 for Life campaign

In October of 2011 the company re-packaged the presentation of its core product line via a campaign known as 90 for Life. The three products that make up the 90 for Life Healthy Start Pack are Beyond Tangy Tangerine, Osteo FX Plus and EFA. These products along with coffee are the leading sales generators for the company. Beyond Tangy Tangerine, alone, now generates almost 2 million in monthly revenue. The direct sales model is highly flexible both on the upside and downside. On the downside in weak consumer markets, AL International should outperform in comparison to traditional competitors. AL benefits from low overheads and fixed costs, limited compensation expenses and limited capex requirements. On the upside, the firm is steadily adding to its existing network of 50,000 direct sellers as well as the 400-plus range of products. Further, the network has strong potential to grow outside the US – particularly in Asia where the direct sales model is extremely well established among consumers.

Network Sales Cloud

The retail sales marketplace is slowly but steadily taking up a second residence in e-commerce and social networks. The network sales cloud concept pioneered by Amazon can readily be adapted by AL International. Amazon started building a core base of clients through on-line book sales – but then added an ever expanding list of product categories. Thus, by initially grabbing a consumer through a book purchase, the consumer could then be incentivized to purchase any one of the thousands of products available in the Amazon sales cloud. Similarly, by initially grabbing a consumer through a purchase of the 90 for Life Healthy Start pack or fortified coffee, AL International can then follow up with the sales and marketing of the 400-plus product line in the Health & Wellness sector. Continually building the distribution network by adding more qualified agents while simultaneously adding to the product line is the key priority for management.

Recession Proof Business Model

The low fixed cost and potentially high margin structure of the firm’s operations make it particularly well placed to grow during flat or falling economic cycles. The relatively high gross margins in direct selling have acted as an effective buffer against the recent dramatic rise in commodity cost inflation. While input cost inflation has hit the bottom line of many retailers, by comparison direct selling companies have actually been delivering gross margin expansion. In the firm’s most recent earnings release, revenues have in fact expanded significantly despite a continued moribund consumer environment.

Breakng MLM News: Youngevity® Forms Marketing Alliance with Livinity™, Direct Seller of Health and Wellness Products

livinity_logo

This weekend at the national convetion of Livinity, David & Barb Pitcock along with the great team from Youngevity announced their new Marketing Alliance. Now if you do not know about the leadership of these two great companies, then take a few minutes and check it out!

Now what I think is the best part of this new alliance is not the power of David and Barb Pitcock, which I feel are two fantastic servant leaders. but it is the combined power of Dr. Joel Wallech and Dr. Dennis Harris.

Dr. Joel Wallach

A biomedical research pioneer, Dr. Joel D. Wallach, DVM, ND spent more than 40 years in the field of Veterinary Medicine, observing and researching the effects of individual nutrients on animal health, before becoming a Naturopathic Physician in 1982. Today, Dr. Wallach is renowned for his groundbreaking research on the health benefits of selenium and other minerals. He currently dedicates his time to lecturing throughout the world on the therapeutic benefits of vitamins and minerals, and on lobbying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on behalf of the dietary supplement industry.

As a researcher at the Emory University Yerkes National Primate Center in Atlanta, Georgia in 1977, Dr. Wallach discovered the world’s first known case of non-human cystic fibrosis in a selenium-deficient Rhesus monkey. At the time, cystic fibrosis was believed to the result of a human genetic disorder. Dr. Wallach’s monumental discovery set him on a 20-year path of research on the health benefits of selenium and other minerals. As a result of this work, he became known as The Mineral Doctor and the Father of Liquid Mineral Supplementation.

Dr. Wallach currently dedicates his time to lecturing throughout the world on the therapeutic benefits of vitamins and minerals, and on lobbying the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on behalf of the dietary supplement industry. His tireless efforts and dedication to the public’s First Amendment rights to complete information on the therapeutic benefits of nutrition prompted the FDA to establish Qualified Health Claims for Selenium (“may reduce the risk of certain cancers”) and Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids (“may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease”). Only a few Qualified Health Claims exist, placing Youngevity in a unique position among Dietary Supplement and Direct Marketing companies.

Dr. Dennis Harris

Dr. Dennis Harris

Dr. Harris graduated from Ohio State University Medical School in 1963 and completed his internship at Grant Hospital, a University affiliated hospital in Columbus, Ohio in 1964. He then entered a residency training program, specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Ohio State University. Upon completion, he moved to Dallas, Texas in 1966 to become chief resident in a Physical Medicine residency training program at Parkland Hospital, Southwestern Medical School, University of Texas. He completed the last year of his residency training in 1967 and moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to begin private practice.

In 1968, Dr. Harris established the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Scottsdale Memorial Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona and was appointed director of that department which he operated until 1984. Dr. Harris then established the Southwest Pain Control Program and directed that program through 1974. This program was the first chronic pain control program in the Southwest, the eighth program in the country, and the first program to be performed on only an outpatient basis. After the efficacy of the program was well established, the entire program was moved to Mesa Lutheran Hospital in 1974 at the hospital’s request. The hospital appointed Dr. Harris as director of that program, and he maintained this position through 1983.

In spite of being trained in traditional medicine, Dr. Harris observed patient after patient experiencing severe, and sometimes life-threatening, side effects from medications. Believing that there was a safer, better and healthier way to practice medicine, Dr. Harris began reading, attending courses and going to lectures and seminars to learn about nutrition and natural health products. This opened up an entirely new world for Dr. Harris, and he developed a new passion—treating the whole patient instead of just symptoms…doing it safely and effectively with natural health products…and helping his patients achieve the best quality of life. Dr. Harris strongly believes that everything we do should be directed toward improving our quality of life.

In 1993, Dr. Harris created and began clinically testing a natural oral remedy to eliminate snoring. This product eventually became No More SNORzzz. In 1994, after clarifying the link between snoring, allergies, sinusitis and asthmatic bronchitis, Dr. Harris created and began testing a natural formulation for relief for allergy and sinus symptoms. 83% good to excellent test results were obtained. This product eventually became BREATHese.

Dr. Harris’ major passion in medicine has been the non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of pain. This propelled Dr. Harris into active research and development wherein, during the past twelve years, he has created an entire line of natural, safe, effective and unique products. His most recent efforts have been devoted to the formulation of products in four areas:

1. Pain—in which he draws from his 30+ years of knowledge and experience.

2. Diabetes—a major problem so extensive that it has the potential to bankrupt national health care systems.

3. Weight Management—a condition so common that it affects 2/3 of Americans.

4. Anti-aging—utilizing the latest scientific research to “turn back the clock” and prevent or retard the diseases commonly

To date, Dr. Harris has been granted three US patents—No More Snorzzz, BREATHEese, and GlucoLiv. The pain products are currently under patent pending status.

The company will host a call on the 15th of May at 4:15ET (1:15PT) to discuss the results.

Gross profits grew to $11,720,567 in Q1 2012, compared to $399,404 for the same period in 2011. First Quarter operating expenses increased to $11,801,821 versus $534,999 in 2011. Onetime expenses for Q1, which were a result of extraordinary annual convention costs and accounting and legal fees related to the audit and Form 10K Filing, were approximately $445,000.

The 2010 and 2011 audit is nearing completion, as most areas of the audit are complete. The accounting fieldwork is coming to a close and the primary audit testing phase is now behind the Company. Additional analysis is required to complete the acquisition accounting component of the audit. Once this step is finalized, the Company can wrap up its tax provisions and publish the two-year audit and begin the review process for Q1. The review period for Q1 is a far shorter process, and once completed the Company will file its Form 10K and begin the up-listing process.

Immunotec Inc.

Immunotec Inc. (IMM.V—TSX VENTURE) announced financial results for its year ended Oct. 31, 2011.

During fiscal 2011, Immunotec recorded sales from Mexico of CAN$8.9 million compared to CAN$1.6 million in 2010 representing an increase of CAN$7.3 million in 12 months.

Network sales reached CAN$37.4 million in 2011 compared to CAN$34.5 million for the same period in 2010, an increase of 8.5 percent or CAN$2.9 million. Other revenues, which include revenues of products sold to licensees, freight and shipping, charge backs and educational material purchased by its network, reached CAN$5.5 million in 2011, compared to CAN$5.9 million for the same period in 2010.

Margins before expenses, as a percentage of net sales, decreased in 2011 to 29 percent compared to 31 percent for year 2010 and was primarily attributed to increases in sales incentives paid, which average a payout rate of 51.0 percent, compared to the 47.7 percent level in 2010. The increase in sales incentives is predominantly caused by strong recruitment in the Mexican territory.

For the year ended Oct. 31, 2011, adjusted EBITDA was almost the same as the year before reaching CAN$724,000 compared to CAN$774,000 for fiscal 2010.

Net loss and comprehensive loss totaled CAN$1.1 million for the year ending Oct. 31, 2011, compared to a loss of CAN$1.4 million for 2010. The total basic and fully diluted loss per share for fiscal 2011 was CAN$0.016 compared with a fully diluted loss of CAN$0.020 for the same period in fiscal 2010.

Immunotec also announced that the company will seek shareholder approval of a special resolution authorizing an amendment to the company’s articles of amalgamation on such basis as the directors of the company may determine, so as to consolidate its common shares on the basis of one post-consolidation common share for a maximum 15 pre-consolidation common shares. In addition to approval from Immunotec’s shareholders by special resolution at the meeting, the share consolidation would also be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The principal reasons for considering the share consolidation include the company’s belief that, if approved and effected, the company could benefit from a raise of its share price to more attractive levels, the improvement of trading liquidity and better chances of raising further capital in the future. The change in the number of issued and outstanding common shares that would result from the share consolidation would cause no change in the capital attributable to the common shares and would not materially affect any shareholder’s percentage of ownership in the company, even though such ownership would be represented by a smaller number of common shares.

Immunotec is a business opportunity supported by unique scientifically proven products that improve wellness. Headquartered with manufacturing facilities near Montreal, Canada, the company also has distribution capacities to support its commercial activities in Canada and internationally to the United States, Europe, Mexico and The Caribbean.

USANA Health Sciences Inc.

USANA Health Sciences Inc. (USNA—NYSE) announced financial results for its fiscal full year ended Dec. 31, 2011.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2011, net sales increased by 12.4 percent to $581.9 million, compared with $517.6 million in the prior year.

Net earnings for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011 increased by 11.2 percent to $50.8 million, or $3.26 per share, compared with $2.86 per share in the prior year. This growth in net earnings was driven by higher sales and improved gross profit margins, partially offset by higher Associate incentive expenses, higher selling, general and administrative expenses, due primarily to the inclusion of a full year of its China operations and a higher effective tax rate.

The company continued its successful track record of generating cash from operations during 2011. Cash generated from operations totaled $70.1 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2011.
