Mannatech Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX ), a global health and wellness company committed to transforming lives to make a better world, today announced financial results for its third quarter 2016.

Third Quarter Results

Third quarter net sales for 2016 were $48.1 million, an increase of $4.2 million or 9.8% as compared to $43.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. Our net sales increased 6.8% on a constant dollar basis (see Non-GAAP Financial Measure disclosures below). Income from operations was $0.5 million for the third quarter 2016, as compared to $2.2 million income in the same period in 2015. Net income was $1.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016, as compared to $0.1 million net income, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015. During the third quarter, our operations outside of the Americas accounted for approximately 60.5% of our consolidated net sales.

Third quarter 2016 Asia/Pacific net sales increased by $3.5 million, or 15.9%, to $25.5 million. During this period, the launch of new products and promotions in Asia/Pacific increased net sales by $2.9 million and the loyalty program increased net sales by $0.4 million, as compared to the same period in 2015. Foreign currency exchange had a $1.6 million positive impact on revenue during the period, as compared to the same period in 2015. The currency impact is primarily due to the strengthening of the Korean Won, Australian Dollar, New Zealand Dollar, Singapore Dollar, Taiwanese Dollar, and Japanese Yen partially offset by the weakening of the Hong Kong Dollar. Revenue per active independent associate and member increased by 11.4% during the third quarter, as compared to the same period in 2015.

Third quarter 2016 net sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, or EMEA, decreased by $0.5 million to $3.6 million, as compared to the same period in 2015; foreign currency exchange had the effect of decreasing our EMEA revenue by $0.3 million during this period. The currency impact is primarily due to the weakening of the South Africa Rand and British Pound. Active associates and members increased 7.2% as compared to the same period in 2015. The launch of new products and promotions in EMEA increased net sales by $0.2 million, as compared to the same period in 2015.

For the three months ended September 30, 2016, net sales in the Americas increased by $1.2 million, or 6.7%, to $19.0 million, as compared to the same period in 2015. During the third quarter 2016, the launch of new products and promotions increased net sales by $1.0 million and the loyalty program increased net sales by $0.1 million, as compared to the same period in 2015.

The approximate number of new and continuing independent associate and member positions held by individuals in Mannatech's network and associated with purchases of our packs or products during the 12-month period ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 were approximately 221,000.

Selling and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2016 increased by $0.9 million, as compared to the same period in 2015. The increase is attributed to payroll costs, warehousing, and marketing costs. Human resource (HR) costs increased $0.1 million due to hiring for our potential entry into the China market. Also impacting HR costs in the third quarter 2016 is $0.4 million of severance costs, as compared to a $0.7 million of severance costs in the third quarter of 2015. Selling and administrative expenses were also impacted by a $0.4 million increase in marketing related costs, and a $0.2 million increase in warehouse charges.

Other operating costs, which include professional fees, travel and entertainment, bad debt, credit card processing fees, and other miscellaneous operating expenses, increased by $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016, as compared to the same period in 2015. The increase in other operating costs was due to a $0.7 million increase in legal and consulting fees as we continue to explore expansion into new markets, transform our supply chain and defend our patents, a $0.1 million increase in research and development costs, a $0.1 million increase in credit card fees, a $0.1 million increase in travel and entertainment costs, and a $0.4 million charge from a partial write-down of the value of internally developed back office software.

Mannatech's cash and cash equivalents increased by approximately $6.3 million to a balance of $38.3 million at September 30, 2016 as compared to $32.0 million at December 31, 2015. Our inventory balance at September 30, 2016 was $10.4 million, compared to $9.2 million at December 31, 2015. Our accounts payable balance at September 30, 2016 increased to $5.2 million, compared to $2.7 million at December 31, 2015, due to the purchase of inventory. At September 30, 2015, our commission payable increased to $11.3 million from $6.8 million at December 31, 2015 due to the timing of our commission payments. During the third quarter of 2016, we paid a $0.3 million dividend and repurchased 9,009 shares of our common stock.

Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of constant currency measures. We disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations. The constant currency figures are financial measures used by management to provide investors an additional perspective on trends. Although we believe the non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors' understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an exclusive alternative to accompanying GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), we disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations. We refer to these adjusted financial measures as constant dollar items, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, we calculate current year results and prior year results at a constant exchange rate, which is the prior year's rate. Currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant currency growth rates.
