"LifeVantage has extraordinary growth potential," Phelps said. "The current product line has fueled impressive growth since the company entered into network marketing in 2009, but I believe that is just our taking-off point." Phelps continued, "We're expanding our U.S. market, preparing to launch our flagship product, Protandim ®, the Nrf2 Synergizer ® patented dietary supplement, in a number of major new markets worldwide and gearing up to announce exciting new products, all in keeping with our commitment to offer unique science-based formulations for healthy living." "Our approximately 70,000 independent distributors have their eyes on a prize," added Phelps, "and that's making LifeVantage a billion-dollar company. They know we have the products and sales know-how to do that. I just spent 24 hours with the company's top 19 global distributors at a summit in Utah. These are some of the most determined, passionate, experienced and insightful network marketers I have ever met. Their conviction and energy, combined with the work of the smart, hard-charging LifeVantage management team, enhances our growth potential." Phelps also noted, "I am truly impressed with the entire leadership team's unity in creating the next wave of LifeVantage momentum." A globally recognized expert in network marketing, Phelps's experience spans North America, Europe, Latin America and nearly every major market in Asia.
