LifeVantage Announces Record First Quarter Fiscal Year 2012 Results

Net Revenue Increases Over 200% from the Prior Year Period to $20.1 Million

Operating Income Improves to a Record $3.4 Million or 17% Operating Margin

Company Raises Full Year Fiscal 2012 Revenue and Operating Margin Guidance

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (OTCBB:LFVN), maker of Protandim®, the Nrf2 Synergizer™ patented dietary supplement, today reported financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Results

For the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company reported record net revenue of $20.1 million compared to $6.4 million for the same period in fiscal 2011, an increase of 214%. On a sequential basis, net revenue increased 34% from the $15.0 million reported for the fiscal 2011 fourth quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 increased to $17.1 million compared to $5.4 million for the same period last year, delivering a gross margin of 85%, compared to 84% for the same period last year.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 decreased as a percent of revenue to 68% or $13.7 million, compared to 80% of revenue or $5.1 million for the same period last year, and on a sequential basis, decreased as a percent of revenue from 73% or $11.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The increase in the amount of operating expenses is due primarily to increased sales commissions which are a direct result of the Company's increased revenue. This increase also reflects greater investment in personnel and infrastructure to position the Company for future growth.

Operating income improved to $3.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $0.3 in the same period last year and $2.0 million in the prior quarter. The first quarter of fiscal 2012 is the Company's fifth consecutive quarter of achieving operating income. Operating income margin improved to 17% in the first fiscal quarter, compared to 5% in the same period last year and 13% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 increased to $3.7 million compared to $0.7 million in the same period last year and a net loss of $47.2 million in the prior quarter. First quarter of fiscal 2012 net income reflects the increase in revenue, leverage of operating expenses and a decrease in interest expense due to the shareholders' conversion of convertible debentures and reduced derivative expenses.

Douglas C. Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of LifeVantage, stated, "We are excited about our strong start to fiscal 2012. Our record first quarter results mark our eleventh consecutive quarter of delivering top line growth as well as our fifth consecutive quarter of achieving operating profit. Our operating margins improved 1,200 basis points from the prior year period, and this underscores our ability to achieve leverage in our business while making strategic investments in our infrastructure. Based on our first quarter results and outlook for the remainder of the year, we are raising our annual revenue, operating income and operating margin guidance."

Mr. Robinson continued, "As awareness and understanding about Protandim® and TrueScience™ Anti-Aging Cream expand in consumer markets as well as among medical professionals, we believe that our business is positioned for continued long-term growth. We are seeing a growing number of distributors join our team, as we had record attendance at our recent quarterly distributor convention. We look forward to building upon this positive momentum and delivering another record year for LifeVantage in fiscal 2012."

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company improved its balance sheet in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. The cash balance at September 30, 2011, was $9.4 million, an increase from $6.4 million at year end fiscal 2011, due to strong revenue growth and operating profits. The Company generated $3.3 million of cash flow from operations in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $0.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011.

The Company previously announced a share repurchase program that authorizes it to utilize up to $5 million to purchase common stock over the course of the twelve months beginning October 1, 2011. Any such repurchases will be made only out of free cash flow from continuing operations, and, on a quarterly basis, will not exceed 50% of free cash flow for such quarter.

Carrie McQueen, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We are pleased with our continued progress in improving our balance sheet and the overall financial position of LifeVantage. To further improve the strength of our financial statements, we are evaluating additional measures to implement in fiscal 2012 to eliminate the volatility in our 'Other income/(expense)' line related to the derivative accounting required for our outstanding warrants."

Guidance

The Company is raising its fiscal 2012 guidance. For the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, the Company now expects to achieve revenue in a range of $95 million to $105 million, compared to the previous range of $80 million to $90 million. The Company now expects fiscal 2012 operating income in a range of $11.4 million to $14.7 million, and an operating margin of 12% to 14%.
