Nu Skin Enterprises Provides Update On Fourth-Quarter Results

PROVO, Utah, Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In advance of an upcoming presentation at the ICR XChange Conference, Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today provided an update on anticipated results for the fourth quarter of 2012. The company now projects fourth-quarter revenue of approximately $588 million, representing growth of 19 percent over the prior year. The impact of foreign currency exchange on revenue will be negligible for the quarter. Earnings per share are estimated to be from $0.94 to $0.96. The company will provide full details on its fourth-quarter results when it reports earnings on Feb. 6, 2013.

"Our business continues to perform very well," said Truman Hunt, president and chief executive officer. "When we forecasted results for 2012, we knew that we faced a difficult fourth-quarter comparison as a result of recognizing approximately $90 million of revenue from our product launch in the fourth quarter of 2011. However, as a result of the dedicated efforts of our sales leaders and corporate personnel around the world, revenue growth will be 19 percent in the fourth quarter, surpassing prior revenue guidance by $58 million."

The company's estimated revenue of $2.17 billion for the year represents growth of more than 24 percent in 2012, the company's fifth consecutive record year. Earnings growth is anticipated to be approximately 30 percent. In addition, the company repurchased $200 million of its stock during the year, approximately 7 percent of total shares outstanding. The company also recently announced its intention to significantly increase its dividend payment by 50 percent beginning with the first dividend in 2013, resulting in an increase of 140 percent in dividend payout over the last three years.

"We continue to believe that 2013 will be yet another record year. As forecasts become clearer for our ageLOC weight management launch in the back half of 2013, we look forward to updating the market on our full-year guidance. We see great enthusiasm building for this launch, reinforcing our forecast for strong results," concluded Hunt.
