The Company is in the process of engaging an investment bank to assist with the analysis. The Company will provide additional details about the results of its analysis as appropriate.

With our strong balance sheet and healthy cash position, we believe we will be able to implement the program at the appropriate time while maintaining sufficient capital to continue our efforts to take advantage of future growth opportunities," Douglas C. Robinson, LifeVantage President and CEO, stated.
