“We were pleased to report fourth quarter revenue of $16.1 million, an increase of 13% over the third quarter of 2021,”
commented Chris Sharng, President of Natural Health Trends Corp.
“The top-line improvement reflected double-digit growth in order volume given our increased ability to adapt to the ever-changing macroeconomic environment resulting from the pandemic.
The increase in order volume resulted in our deferred revenue balance growing by $2.5 million from September 30 to December 31, 2021. Additionally, we reported our seventh consecutive quarter of positive operating income and net income.”
Mr. Sharng continued, “As we look ahead into 2022, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated government-mandated restrictions and lockdowns, will likely continue to present headwinds to our business. However, we believe we can continue to support our order volume due to the unwavering hard work and dedication of our employees, leaders and members, coupled with our ability to quickly respond and adapt to changing market conditions. We are guardedly optimistic we will benefit from a gradual resumption of in-person member events and activities going forward.”
