SALT LAKE CITY, May 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN) today reported financial results for its third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2015.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2015 Highlights:

  • Revenue was $45 million compared to $55 million in the prior year period;
  • Revenue in the Americas increased by 1% compared to the prior year period;
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million, compared to $5.7 million in the prior year period;
  • Identified annual cost structure savings of approximately $4 million.

Dave S. Manovich, Executive Vice Chairman of LifeVantage stated, "We are very pleased with our recently announced appointment of Darren Jensen as our next President and Chief Executive Officer. Throughout the transition to a new CEO, we have focused on taking the necessary steps to help us reignite top and bottom line growth. We have identified approximately $4 million in annual cost reductions. Approximately $1.3 million has already been implemented through headcount reductions and the remaining $2.7 million will be implemented in selling, general and administrative expense reductions over the course of fiscal 2016. Upon joining the company in mid-May, Mr. Jensen will have the flexibility to further shape, drive and articulate the Company’s strategic initiatives.”

Mr. Manovich continued, “While our year-to-date revenue in the Americas grew approximately 3% compared to the prior year, our Asia Pacific revenue declined 28%. We are not pleased with these current revenue trends and remain committed to improving the level of engagement with our strong distributor base and expanding awareness and understanding of our full product lineup.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2015 Results

For the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported revenue of $45.2 million, compared to $55.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2014. Revenue includes an increase of 1% in the Americas, and a decrease in the Asia/Pacific region of 45%. The year-over-year decline in the Asia/Pacific region is primarily due to Japan’s lower volume, negative foreign currency exchange and a benefit in the prior year period from customers accelerating purchasing in advance of announced price increases that went into effect on April 1, 2014. Revenue for the quarter was negatively impacted $1.8 million, or 3%, by foreign currency fluctuation.

Commissions and incentives for the third fiscal quarter of 2015 were $21.6 million, or 47.9% of revenue, compared to $26.8 million, or 48.6% of revenue, in the same period last year. Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) for the third fiscal quarter of 2015 were $14.5 million, or 32.1% of revenue, compared to $15.4 million, or 27.9% of revenue, in the same period last year. SG&A expenses in the third fiscal quarter of 2015 include $1.2 million in one-time expenses, including CEO severance costs, the engagement of an executive search firm and one-time investments in new sales events.

Operating income for the third fiscal quarter of 2015 was $1.5 million, compared to $4.5 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2014.

Net income for the third fiscal quarter of 2015 was $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, calculated on 97.7 million fully diluted shares. This compares to net income in the third fiscal quarter of 2014 of $2.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, calculated on 106.6 million fully diluted shares. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2015, compared to $5.7 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the CEO severance and related executive search firm expenses.

Fiscal 2015 First Nine Months Results

For the nine months ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported net revenue of $145.0 million, compared to $157.9 million in the prior year period. Revenue in the Americas increased 3%, while revenue in the Asia/Pacific region decreased 28% due primarily to lower sales in Japan. Revenue for the first nine months of fiscal 2015 was negatively impacted $4.0 million, or 7%, by foreign currency fluctuation.

Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2015 was $12.3 million, compared to $14.7 million in the prior year period.

Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2015 was $6.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the prior year period. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA was $14.3 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2015, compared to $18.4 million in the prior year period.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company generated $9.0 million of cash flow from operations in the first nine months of fiscal 2015. Cash flow benefited from a one-time cash settlement of approximately $2 million in the first quarter. The Company's cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2015 were $15.4 million, compared to $20.4 million at the end of fiscal year 2014.

In addition, during the first nine months of fiscal 2015 the Company has returned $9.9 million to shareholders by repurchasing a total of 7.6 million shares. Inventory increased $2.0 million compared to June 30, 2014, which is related to the Company’s recent product launches, TrueScience and Axio, as well as the recent decline in revenue. On a sequential basis, inventory decreased $1.2 million highlighting the Company’s inventory control efforts.

Fiscal Year 2015 Guidance

The Company is reaffirming its guidance for fiscal year 2015. The Company expects to generate revenue in the range of $185 million to $195 million in fiscal year 2015. The Company has modeled Japan to decline by approximately 35% with the remaining countries collectively impacting revenue from a negative 3.0% at the bottom end of our range, to a positive 2% at the top end of our range, on a year-over-year basis. The Company expects its operating margin to be in the range of 7% to 9% and earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.07 to $0.08, based on an estimated 100 million diluted shares and a 33% effective tax rate.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense and other income, net. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA are presented solely as a supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe it is a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income, our most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with GAAP.
