Nautilus Comments On Recent Share Distribution

June 6, 2011--Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS) today announced that its Board of Directors has joined with Sherborne Investors in expressing their full confidence in the Company’s new executive team and in acknowledging the accomplishments and progress by the Company over the past three years.

M. Carl Johnson, III, the Company’s newly elected Non-Executive Chairman, stated, “The Company’s new growth-oriented strategic direction is now the right one for Nautilus following the restructuring and cost improvements implemented since 2007 under Sherborne’s leadership. Both Nautilus and Sherborne are encouraged by the improved state of the Company as reflected in our performance over the two most recent quarters, and the new management team is well positioned to continue this positive momentum.”

Edward J. Bramson, former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nautilus, and currently partner and a managing member of Sherborne Investors, stated, “At the beginning of the year, we encouraged the Nautilus Board to identify a new Chief Executive and Chairman since the turnaround of the Company was substantially completed and its financial performance and business outlook had greatly improved. Sherborne strongly endorses the Company’s new leadership team with Bruce Cazenave as Chief Executive Officer and Carl Johnson as Non-Executive Chairman of the Board and believes both are well qualified to move the Company forward to become a leading global fitness products company.” Bramson added, “Consistent with our Firm’s historical investment philosophy, Sherborne does not hold shares for our investors once we are no longer actively involved in the management of a company. The recent distribution of shares among our numerous investors enables those who wish to sell to do so and others to hold the stock and, like Sherborne, to remain interested in following the Company’s continued progress.”

Bruce M. Cazenave, newly appointed Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Although my tenure with the Company is short, I am encouraged by the positive trends of our products during this seasonally soft quarter and am confident of the profitable growth potential of Nautilus in both the direct and retail channels. Accordingly, we are aggressively advancing plans to expand our offerings and add new value to our current line-up, building on our strengths in product quality and innovation .”
