SALT LAKE CITY, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq: LFVN) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended March 31, 2021.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Summary:

  • Revenue of $51.6 million, a decrease of 8.0% from the prior year period and a decline of 12.6% sequentially;
  • Total active accounts decreased 4.0% compared to the prior year period while declining 3.4% sequentially to 168,000. The year over year decline included declines in distributors of 4.5% and customers of 3.7%. Compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021, distributors declined by 6.0% and customers declined by 1.9%;
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.12, up 9.1% over the prior year period and down 53.8% sequentially;
  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.20, up 53.8% compared to $0.13 in the prior year period and down 20.0% sequentially;
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5.7% to $4.8 million compared to the prior year period and decreased 28.4% sequentially;
  • Repurchased 213,000, or $2.0 million, of common shares; and
  • Strong balance sheet with $19.0 million of cash and no debt.

“While third quarter results did not meet our expectations, the strategies we’ve been implementing to drive improved operating performance are starting to have an impact, which we believe will drive favorable results over the next couple quarters,” said Steve Fife, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of LifeVantage. “Supply chain challenges related to COVID-19 were a factor in the third quarter, causing delays in new product launches due to raw material shortages. Despite a more challenging environment in the third quarter that resulted in an 8% decline in revenue, we still grew adjusted earnings per share by 54% to $0.20 per share compared to the prior year period. We’re very encouraged by our ongoing efforts to drive engagement and alignment across our field organization. Trends improved as the quarter progressed and recent activity by our top producers demonstrates their strong commitment to growth through a combined focus on both core competencies and new product offerings. We remain confident in our business model and strategic direction and are well positioned to drive long-term shareholder value.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results

For the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021, the Company reported revenue of $51.6 million, an 8.0% decrease compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Revenue in the Americas for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 9.4% compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and revenue in the Asia/Pacific & Europe region decreased 4.7% compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was positively impacted $0.9 million, or 1.6%, by foreign currency fluctuations associated with revenue generated in international markets when compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2020.

Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $42.8 million, or 82.9% of revenue, compared to $47.0 million, or 83.8% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of revenue is primarily due to increased shipping to customer expenses due to COVID-19, decreased fee revenues as a result of fewer in-person distributor events being held during the current year period due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and shifts in geographic and product sales mix.

Commissions and incentives expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $25.2 million, or 48.8% of revenue, compared to $26.7 million, or 47.6% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020. The increase in commissions and incentives expense as a percentage of revenue is due mainly to increased costs and accruals associated with distributor recognition events and incentive trip promotions.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $15.5 million, or 30.1% of revenue, compared to $17.3 million, or 30.8% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020. Adjusted for nonrecurring expenses, which are detailed in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables included at the end of this press release, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 were $14.4 million, or 27.9% of revenue, compared to adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 of $16.9 million, or 30.2% of revenue. The year over year decrease in non-GAAP SG&A expenses was primarily due to decreased event and travel expenses as well as decreased stock and incentive compensation expenses partially due to the departure of executives.

Operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $2.1 million, or 4.0% of revenue, compared to $3.0 million, or 5.4% of revenue, for the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Accounting for non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, adjusted non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $3.2 million, or 6.2% of revenue, compared to $3.4 million, or 6.0% of revenue, for the third quarter of fiscal 2020.

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $1.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 of $1.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 increased 48.8% year over year, to $2.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. The Company’s effective tax rate decreased to 5.8% in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 37.7% in the prior year period. The decrease in the current year tax rate positively impacted adjusted earnings per share by approximately $0.07.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased 5.7% to $4.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to $5.1 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2020.

Fiscal 2021 First Nine Month Results

For the first nine months of fiscal 2021, the Company reported revenue of $165.4 million, a decrease of 4.7% as compared to $173.5 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. In the first nine months of fiscal 2021, revenue in the Americas decreased 6.2% and revenue in Asia/Pacific & Europe decreased 1.0%. Revenue for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was positively impacted $1.8 million, or 1.0%, by foreign currency fluctuations associated with revenue generated in international markets when compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2020.

Gross profit for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $137.0 million, or 82.8% of revenue, compared to $145.0 million, or 83.6% of revenue, for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. The decrease in gross margin as a percentage of revenue is primarily due to increased shipping expenses, decreased fee revenues as a result of fewer distributor meetings in conjunction with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as shifts in geographic and product sales mix.

Commissions and incentives expense for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $77.9 million, or 47.1% of revenue, compared to $82.7 million, or 47.6% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020. Commissions and incentives expense as a percentage of revenue decreased during the comparable periods due to the timing and magnitude of investments in our promotional and incentive programs and our red carpet program.

SG&A expense for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $48.0 million, or 29.0% of revenue, compared to $53.1 million, or 30.6% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020. Adjusted for nonrecurring expenses and recoveries, which are detailed in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables included at the end of this press release, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 were $45.7 million, or 27.6% of revenue, compared to adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 of $52.3 million, or 30.1% of revenue. The year over year decrease in non-GAAP SG&A expenses was primarily due to the cancellation of in-person events and decreased travel expenses related to the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as lower stock and incentive compensation expenses due in part to the departure of executives.

Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $11.0 million, or 6.7% of revenue, compared to $9.3 million, or 5.3% of revenue, for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Accounting for non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, adjusted non-GAAP operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $13.4 million, or 8.1% of revenue, compared to $10.0 million, or 5.8% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2020.

Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $8.0 million, or $0.55 per diluted share compared to $7.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share for the first nine months ended 2020. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 increased 19.3% to $10.0 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 of $8.4 million, or $0.57 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company’s effective tax rate increased to 24.0% in the first nine months of fiscal 2021 compared to an effective tax rate of 10.6% in the prior year period.  The increase in the current year tax rate negatively impacted adjusted earnings per share by approximately $0.12.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 15.6% to $18.2 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021, compared to $15.8 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2020.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company generated $7.9 million of cash from operations during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 compared to $9.0 million in the same period in fiscal 2020. The Company's cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 were $19.0 million, compared to $22.1 million at June 30, 2020. The Company had no debt outstanding at March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively. During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the Company repurchased approximately 213,000 common shares for $2.0 million under its share repurchase program.

Fiscal Year 2021 Guidance

The Company is updating its outlook for fiscal 2021 adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA, and now anticipates fiscal 2021 revenue to be between $220 million to $223 million, reflecting the impact we’ve experienced due to COVID-19 on our consumer base and delays in the timing of our product and geographic launches. The Company expects to generate adjusted EBITDA of $24 million to $25 million, with adjusted earnings per share in the range of $0.90 to $0.93, which assumes a full year tax rate of approximately 26%. The Company's guidance for adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA and adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes any non-operating or non-recurring expenses that may materialize during fiscal 2021. This guidance reflects the current trends in the business and the Company’s current view as to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business. The Company is not providing guidance for GAAP earnings per diluted share for fiscal 2021 due to the potential occurrence of one or more non-operating, one-time expenses, which the Company does not believe it can reliably predict.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We define Non-GAAP Net Income as GAAP net income less certain tax adjusted non-recurring one-time expenses incurred during the period and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share as Non-GAAP Net Income divided by weighted-average shares outstanding.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share are presented solely as supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe these measures are a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share internally as benchmarks to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present reconciliations of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share, which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income and Earnings per Share, our most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
