Nu Skin Enterprises Reports Estimated Third-Quarter Revenue Significantly Above Previous Guidance
Revenue increase driven by continued adoption of digitally enabled business resulting in strong sales leader and customer growth
Company to release full results for third quarter on Nov. 4
PROVO, Utah — Oct. 1, 2020 — Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today estimated third-quarter 2020 revenue of $700 to $703 million, well ahead of its previous guidance of $605 to $635 million.
“Driven primarily by ongoing investment in our digitally enabled business model and our strong product portfolio, we significantly grew both customers and sales leaders in the third quarter,” said Ritch Wood, chief executive officer. “Our results also benefited from the current environment where consumers are spending more time online and working from home, as sales leaders leverage the power of social sharing to achieve greater levels of productivity. Digital transactions accounted for approximately 90 percent of sales this quarter. We are also pleased with greater geographic balance in our business driven by continued expansion in the West, as well as sequential improvement in China and strong growth in our manufacturing segment. These results provide increased momentum as we head into the fourth quarter, with growing anticipation for the global previews of our new ageLOC Boost device and Nutricentials Bioadaptive Skin Care line.”
Nu Skin Enterprises will release its full third-quarter results and provide an updated outlook for 2020 after the market closes on Wednesday, Nov. 4. The management team will host a conference call with the investment community later that same day at 5 p.m. ET. The webcast of the conference call, including the financial information presented, will be available on the investor relations page of the company’s website at ir.nuskin.com. A replay of the webcast will be available at the same location through Wednesday, Nov. 18.
