Nu Skin Enterprises Provides Estimated Second Quarter Revenue
Company to announce full second quarter results and revised guidance Aug. 4
PROVO, Utah — July 7, 2022 — Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today announced estimated second quarter revenue between $557 and $562 million.
“Our second quarter revenue was softer than expected due to extended COVID-related factors in Mainland China, distractions in EMEA related to the ongoing conflict in Russia and Ukraine, and the general global economic downturn that is particularly challenging for developing regions like Latin America,” said Ryan Napierski, Nu Skin president and CEO. “Although we are disappointed in our second quarter results, we are encouraged by growth in our Southeast Asia region and ongoing momentum in the U.S., particularly given the inflationary environment. We are optimistic about our EmpowerMe personalized beauty and wellness strategy with the launch of our first connected beauty device, ageLOC LumiSpa iO, which we anticipate will result in sequential improvements in the back half of the year. We remain confident in the long-term potential of our Nu Vision 2025 strategy and the ongoing transformation of our business to becoming the world’s leading integrated beauty and wellness company.”
Nu Skin Enterprises will release full second-quarter results and provide updated guidance after the market closes on Thursday, Aug. 4, and will host a conference webcast later that day at 5 p.m. ET at ir.nuskin.com. A replay of the webcast will be available at the same location through Aug. 18.
