LEHI, Utah, March 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nature’s Sunshine Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: NATR), a leading natural health and wellness company engaged in the manufacture and sale of nutritional and personal care products, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Management Commentary

“I’m extremely pleased with the progress we made in 2019 on our global transformation. We spent the last half of the year focused on our Global Growth Strategy, creating a series of groundbreaking initiatives to strengthen our brand, improve field fundamentals, expand digital capabilities, extend our manufacturing leadership, and enhance our organization capabilities. We also focused on improving profitability by implementing a comprehensive restructuring program and reducing unprofitable sales initiatives. As a result, operating profit almost tripled while adjusted EBITDA increased 77.6 percent versus prior year,” said Terrence Moorehead, Chief Executive Officer. “In 2020, our plan is to accelerate our global strategies while remaining focused on driving costs out of the business to deliver further profit improvements. In the coming months, we anticipate delivering a new and significantly improved distributor and customer experience. This includes the launch of exciting new branding, a new consumer-centric website and ecommerce platform, new digital tools and the launch of additional products within our line of hemp-derived CBD products.”

“Like everyone else operating in Asia, we also need to navigate the near-term challenges posed by the coronavirus. Several of our largest markets have been negatively affected by the outbreak. Having said that, our first priority, is the health and safety of our employees, distributors and customers and we are taking all of the necessary precautions. While it’s still too early to fully understand the financial impact on the business, we anticipate Q1 revenue to be significantly down in Asia and will monitor the situation as it develops. Local management teams are adjusting workflows and processes in an effort to adapt to the situation on the ground,” continued Moorehead.

Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2019 decreased 5.8 percent to $91.7 million compared to $97.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Net sales were also negatively impacted by $0.8 million of unfavorable foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. On a local currency basis, net sales decreased 5.0 percent compared to 2018. The decrease was primarily related to declines in Asia, North America, and Latin America and Other, partially offset by growth in Europe. 

Gross margin, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 74.0 percent from 73.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in gross margin as compared to the prior year was primarily driven by changes in market mix and reserves for obsolete inventory recorded in the prior year.

Volume incentives, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 34.1 percent from 32.8 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018. The increase in volume incentives as a percent of net sales is primarily due to changes in market mix, reflecting growth in markets where volume incentives as a percentage of net sales are higher than the consolidated average.

SG&A expenses decreased by approximately $8.4 million to $32.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in SG&A expenses is primarily due to savings from restructuring activities. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses were 35.7 percent, compared to 42.2 percent for the same period in 2018. Excluding the impact of CEO transition expenses and other restructuring charges, fourth quarter SG&A expenses as a percentage of net sales were 35.6 percent compared to 40.1 percent in the prior year period.

The operating income in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $3.9 million, or 4.3 percent as a percentage of net sales, as compared to operating loss of $1.2 million, or 1.3 percent as a percentage of net sales in the fourth quarter of 2018. Excluding non-recurring items note above, operating income was $3.9 million, or 4.3 percent as a percentage of net sales, compared to an operating loss of $0.8 million, or 0.8 percent as a percentage of net sales in the prior year period.

Other income, net, in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $0.5 million compared to a loss of $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The provision for income taxes was $3.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The GAAP net income attributable to common shareholders was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per common share, compared to a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.15 per common share, in 2018. Net income attributable to NSP China was $1.1 million, or $0.06 per common share for the quarter, compared to a loss of $0.5 million, or $0.03 per common share for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per common share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per common share in the prior year period. A reconciliation of adjusted net income/loss to GAAP net income/loss is provided in the attached financial tables.

Adjusted EBITDA was $7.6 million, compared to $4.0 million in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined here as net income/loss from continuing operations before taxes, depreciation, amortization and other income/loss adjusted to exclude share-based compensation expense and certain noted adjustments. A reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the attached financial tables.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We have included information which has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), such as information concerning non-GAAP net income, Adjusted EBITDA and net sales excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange fluctuations.

We utilize the non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA in the evaluation of our operations and believe that these measures are useful indicators of our ability to fund our business. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, U.S. GAAP net income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance.

Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of Nature’s Sunshine Products’ performance in relation to other companies. We have included a reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA, the most comparable GAAP measure. We have also included a reconciliation of GAAP net income to Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP Adjusted EPS, in the attached financial tables.

Net sales in local currency removes, from net sales in U.S. dollars, the impact of changes in exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and the functional currencies of our foreign subsidiaries. This is accomplished by translating the current period net sales into U.S. dollars using the same foreign currency exchange rates that were used to translate the net sales for the previous comparable period.

We believe presenting the impact of foreign currency fluctuations is useful to investors because it allows a more meaningful comparison of net sales of our foreign operations from period to period. Net sales excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net sales in U.S. dollar measures that reflect current period exchange rates, or to other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
