MLM Financial

A couple of days ago, Nu Skin released their second-quarter results, and the future is still very promising for the company shareholders and the distributors. I find this very positive, since it seems we are still watching the short-sellers try and discredit publicly traded direct selling companies.

Company announces date for full second-quarter earnings


PROVO, Utah — July 9, 2013 — Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today announced a significant increase to estimated revenue and earnings per share for the second quarter of 2013. Revenue is now estimated to be about $680 million, with estimated earnings per share of approximately $1.20. Foreign currency fluctuations negatively impacted second-quarter revenue by approximately 3 percent.  Prior revenue guidance was $570 to $580 million, with earnings per share guidance of $0.91 to $0.95.


Nu SkinAdditionally, the company announced that it is increasing its full-year 2013 revenue guidance by $320 million to $2.83 to $2.86 billion, including a negative 5 percent impact from foreign currency fluctuations. The company now expects 2013 earnings to be $4.85 to $5.00 per share.

“Our second-quarter results reflect the strong momentum of our business,” stated Truman Hunt, president and chief executive officer. “After a record 2012 that included impressive ageLOC product launches in the second quarter, we continue to generate healthy gains throughout our global business, particularly in the Greater China, North Asia and Americas regions.


“We look forward to sharing full second-quarter results with our shareholders on Aug. 1 during our quarterly conference call. In addition, we will provide updates on our expectations for the remainder of the year, which include the limited-time introduction of our new ageLOC TR90 weight management system in September and October. We continue to expect this product introduction to be the largest in our history and anticipate a net impact of approximately $380 to $400 million from TR90 sales in the second half of the year,” concluded Hunt.

Over at Cosmetics Design, Simon Pitman also wrote an opt-ed piece which shares some additional details. What I found interesting in his piece is where the bulk of Nu Skin’s revenues come from.


Although the company is headquartered in the US and a global player, most of its revenues are derived from the Asia Pacific region, and more specifically the China market, where it has ridden a wave of strong growth in the cosmetics and personal care category.
