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.
