USANA Year 2017 Sales Up 4% To $1.047 Billion

USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA) today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and full-year ended December 30, 2017.
Financial Performance
For the fourth quarter of 2017, net sales were $273.1 million compared with $252.9 million in the prior-year period, or an 8.0% increase year-over-year. The weakening of the U.S. dollar positively impacted net sales by $7.4 million for the quarter.
The Company’s total number of active Customers2 increased modestly year-over-year to 565,000.
The Company reported a net loss for the fourth quarter of $5.9 million, or $0.24 loss per share, compared with net earnings of $21.9 million, or $0.87 per diluted share during the prior-year period. The net loss is attributable to a one-time, non-cash charge of $30.1 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, related to the U.S. tax reform3 (the “Tax Reform”) enacted on December 22, 2017.
The charge is largely due to foreign tax credits and other deferred tax assets that the Company will not be able to realize under the new tax laws. Costs related to China and the Company’s internal investigation into its China operations, which was first disclosed in February 2017, negatively impacted fourth quarter net earnings by approximately $2.7 million after tax and earnings per diluted

Groupe Rocher Acquires Arbonne

Arbonne International LLC in Irvine, California (USA) and a sister company, Nature’s Gate, will be bought by Groupe Rocher on undisclosed terms.
Arbonne is a direct seller of beauty, skincare, and nutritional products while Nature’s Gate is a personal care brand sold in retail stores. The holding company is Natural Products Group; ownership includes private equity firm Eos Partners LP in New York.
The deal expands the Paris-based buyer’s direct-selling—doubling its direct-selling consultants to about 475,000, news reports said—and its reach in English-speaking markets.
A trade journal said 80% of Rocher’s $2.5 billion in annual sales come from France and Europe, about 15% from the Middle East, South America and Asia, and 5% from North America.
“This acquisition will be a real asset that will enable us to strengthen our positioning in the direct selling channel, which has seen an upturn over the past few years.
We also have a heritage of providing employment opportunities —dating back to my grandfather, our founder, Yves Rocher, who cared deeply about providing employment since he started his business.
This, combined with our direct selling know-how, should foster company growth and longevity,”
said Bris Rocher, CEO of Groupe Rocher.
Kay Zanotti, CEO of Arbonne, added,
“We share with Groupe Rocher
