SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (NASDAQ:LFVN) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2015.

  • Revenue in the Americas increased 2.5% and revenue in Asia/Pacific decreased 5.5% on a sequential basis;
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $3.1 million, compared to $3.3 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2015;
  • Completed implementation of annual cost structure improvements of approximately $4 million.

Full Year Fiscal 2015 Highlights:

  • Revenue was $190.3 million compared to $214.0 million for the prior fiscal year;
  • Revenue in the Americas decreased 2.2% and revenue in Asia/Pacific decreased 28.2% compared to the prior fiscal year;
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $17.4 million compared to $24.5 million for the prior year;
  • Reduced long-term debt to $20.7 million at the end of fiscal 2015 from $29.8 million at the end of fiscal 2014;
  • Ended fiscal 2015 with $13.9 million of cash and cash equivalents;
  • Returned $9.9 million to shareholders by repurchasing 7.6 million shares.


"Our fourth quarter results reflected stability in our revenue and operating results,” stated LifeVantage President and Chief Executive Officer Darren Jensen. “We strategically implemented $4 million of annualized cost savings in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 to better align our cost structure with current sales trends, and position us for stronger EBITDA and net income in fiscal 2016.”

Mr. Jensen continued, “Since I joined the company in May of 2015, we have taken a deliberate approach to reposition LifeVantage for success. We have assembled an executive leadership team with more than 75 years of combined experience and demonstrated success within the direct selling industry. Operationally, we have implemented a proactive plan that focuses on critical aspects of our business, including the utilization of new technologies, brand differentiation, the formulation of new products, and international growth. In the Distributor field, we have a more focused approach designed to engage and ignite our field leadership and our existing Distributors to grow their respective organizations and our company. When comparing our financial results on a sequential basis, we have already begun stabilizing our top and bottom line results in the first quarter. We expect that we will begin to see improved results beginning in the back half of fiscal 2016 as our new initiatives begin to take hold across our organization.”

Today, the company filed a preliminary proxy statement that includes a unanimous recommendation from the Board of Directors that stockholders approve a proposal to implement a reverse split of the company’s stock in order to maintain the company’s listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The company currently meets all financial requirements necessary for continued listing on Nasdaq; however, its current stock price does not meet the minimum bid price requirement of $1 per share. Therefore the board has unanimously approved the reverse stock split with the primary intent of increasing the price of the company’s common stock in order to maintain its listing.

Mr. Garry Mauro, Chairman of the Board of LifeVantage stated, “As you see from this earnings release, we generated over $190 million of revenue this past year, have solid EBITDA and expect both metrics to improve in fiscal 2016. We are submitting the request for a reverse stock split from a position of strength. We currently have approximately 97.8 million shares outstanding and as many of our shareholders have mentioned to us, that is too many shares outstanding.

“This reverse stock split is intended to enable us to exceed the minimum bid price and maintain continued listing on Nasdaq, which is extremely important as we look to enhance and maximize long-term shareholder value. During the past 3 years we have been very open about our desire to significantly reduce our shares outstanding and therefore, we have repurchased approximately 30 million shares. In addition, we believe that having fewer shares outstanding and a higher stock price will make our company more attractive to institutional money managers. For all of these positive reasons, we believe it is important for our shareholders to vote in favor of the proposal."

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, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. 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.
