Greetings and welcome to the Mannatech Incorporated Fourth Quarter 2011 Earnings Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. A brief question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation. (Operator instructions) As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.
Now I’d like to introduce our moderator for the call today, Mr. Mark Nicholls, Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Nicholls, you may begin.
Thank you. Good morning, everyone. This is Mark Nicholls, and welcome to Mannatech’s fourth quarter 2011 earnings call. Today, you will hear from both me and Mannatech’s CEO and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Rob Sinnott. Before we begin the call, I will first read the Safe Harbor statement.
During this conference call, we may make forward-looking statements, which can involve future events or future financial performance. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of phrases or terminologies such as will, continue, may, believe, intend, expects, potential, should, and plan or other similar words or the negative of such terminology. We caution listeners that such forward-looking statements are subject to certain events, risks, uncertainties, and other factors and speak only as of today. We also refer our listeners to review our SEC submissions.
Our operating results for year-end 2011 represented a number of challenges and success milestones. At the consolidated level, our net loss is $20.7 million, on net sales of $200.7 million. Clearly both our net loss and continued decline in net sales are issues, but as we will discuss later the activities undertaken in earlier quarters are showing positive results.
