Second Quarter 2023 Results
Second quarter 2023 revenue decreased 34.7% to $296.2 million from $453.3 million for the second quarter of 2022, primarily driven by a decrease in the number of active earning OPTAVIA Coaches and the decline in the productivity per active earning OPTAVIA Coach.
The average revenue per active earning OPTAVIA Coach was $5,578, compared to $6,667 for the second quarter last year, a decline of 16.3%, driven by continued pressure on customer acquisition, partially offset by the price increase implemented in November 2022. The total number of active earning OPTAVIA Coaches decreased 21.9% to 53,100 compared to 68,000 for the second quarter of 2022.
Gross profit decreased 34.5% to $210.7 million from $321.7 million for the second quarter of 2022. The decrease in gross profit was due to lower revenue. The Company’s gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 71.1% compared to 71.0% in the second quarter of 2022.
The Company’s balance sheet remains strong with $147.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and no interest-bearing debt as of June 30, 2023 compared to $87.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and no debt at December 31, 2022.
