MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

The Company’s double-digit net sales growth of 18.9% in the first quarter is a reflection of the long-established strategy and growth trajectory that started in 2018. The demand for Herbalife Nutrition products, combined with the determination and entrepreneurial spirit of the Company’s independent distributors, resulted in first quarter net sales of $1.5 billion, which is a record for the Company.

“This quarter we delivered record first quarter results with net sales growth of 18.9%, as our distributors delivered valuable nutrition solutions to consumers around the world,” said John Agwunobi, Chairman and CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

The Company is seeing continued consumer interest in health and wellness products which is driving demand for its range of nutritional product offerings. The Company’s global products and direct sales channel allow its independent distributors to support consumers as they reach their nutrition goals.

The fundamentals of the business are strong, evidenced by year-over-year growth and the record first quarter. Five of the Company’s six regions experienced net sales growth with three of the six regions: North America, Asia Pacific and EMEA, growing by more than 20%. In particular, India set a new quarterly net sales record for the third quarter in a row, with year-over-year growth of 37%. Additionally, the Company is seeing the first net sales benefit from currency since the fourth quarter 2017, as currency was a net sales tailwind of approximately 180 bps, excluding Venezuela.

Agwunobi added, “Due to the ongoing performance of our materially enlarged sales force and the increased awareness and consumer demand for our rapidly expanding product portfolio, we have meaningfully raised and narrowed our full year 2021 guidance. We believe in the long-term growth opportunity of our business.”

Based on the continued increased growth in net sales, the Company’s new guidance calls for net sales growth to be in a range of 9% to 15%, up from its prior range of 6% to 14%. Additionally, the midpoint of our reported and adjusted1 diluted EPS guidance range increased by approximately 7%.

The demand for the Company’s full line of nutrition products and adaption of technology tools provided by the Company to its independent distributors contributed to double-digit growth in over 50 of the Company’s markets. The Company’s sports nutrition line continues to drive growth, with worldwide net sales in energy, sports, and fitness category increasing approximately 34% during the first quarter. Furthermore, the Company’s targeted nutrition category, which includes health and wellness products, grew by 21% while the core weight management product category grew by 16% in the quarter. Moreover, consumer facing technology used by the Company’s independent distributors to interact with their customers, particularly in cases where face-to-face interactions are unable to take place, was also a key factor in helping drive growth.

We are deeply grateful to our employees and distributors around the world who continue to deliver on our promise to customers every day, despite the ongoing pandemic.

To drive shareholder value, during the first quarter the Company executed an approximately $621 million in share repurchases. The Company has just under $1.5 billion remaining on our three-year $1.5 billion share repurchase authorization.

“We repurchased $621 million in shares in the first quarter. We will continue to keep a sharp focus on enhancing shareholder value and capital allocation as we look to deploy excess cash to the almost $1.5 billion remaining on our share repurchase program,” said Alex Amezquita, Chief Financial Officer, Herbalife Nutrition.

The company will host a virtual Investor Day in August 2021.

1 Adjusted diluted EPS is a non-GAAP measure and excludes the impact of: non-cash interest expense and amortization associated with the Company’s convertible notes, expenses related to regulatory inquiries and legal accruals, debt issuance costs related to the senior secured credit facility amendment, and net expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic. See Schedule A – “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a detailed reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income calculated in accordance with GAAP and a reconciliation of adjusted diluted EPS to diluted EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful. See the “Outlook” discussion below and the related footnotes for additional information regarding adjusted diluted EPS guidance.

2 First quarter 2021 results were impacted by China grant income of approximately $15.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share and expenses related to the China Growth and Impact Investment Program of approximately $3.5 million or $0.03 per diluted share. First quarter 2020 results were impacted by China grant income of approximately $9.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share and expenses related to the China Growth and Impact Investment Program of approximately $2.2 million or $0.01 per diluted share. First quarter 2020 adjusted results have been updated in Schedule A to no longer exclude China grant income.

See Schedule A – “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of why we believe adjusting for Venezuela is useful.

(c) Adjusted diluted EPS and adjusted effective tax rate excludes the impact of non-cash interest expense and amortization associated with the Company’s convertible notes, as detailed in Schedule A. See Schedule A – “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a detailed reconciliation of adjusted diluted EPS to diluted EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP and a discussion of why the Company believes these non-GAAP measures are useful.

(d) Currency adjusted net sales and adjusted diluted EPS represent projections translated into US dollars at currency rates equal to the average rates used to translate 2020 second quarter and full year net sales and diluted EPS and adjusted for items such as hedging gains/losses and Venezuela to be directly comparable to 2020 values. See our Company’s Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and Schedule A – “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for a discussion of why we believe adjusting for the effects of foreign exchange is useful.

  • With respect to guidance, the Company cannot accurately predict the impact to its share base from any future share repurchases. Accordingly, any impact thereof is excluded from the guidance table above.
  • Guidance is based on the average daily exchange rates for the first two weeks of April 2021.
  • Adjusted(a)(b)(c) diluted EPS guidance for the second quarter 2021 includes a projected currency tailwind of approximately $0.19 per diluted share versus the second quarter 2020.
  • Full year 2021 adjusted(a)(b)(c) diluted EPS guidance includes a projected currency tailwind of approximately $0.12 per diluted share versus the full year 2020. This $0.12 tailwind is $0.23 unfavorable as compared to the expected $0.35 tailwind included in the full year 2021 guidance provided on February 17, 2021.

Supplemental Information

SCHEDULE A: RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Unaudited and unreviewed), (All tables provide Dollars in millions, except per Share Data)

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Diluted EPS

In addition to its reported results and guidance calculated in accordance with GAAP, the Company has included in this release adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS, performance measures that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as “non-GAAP financial measures.” Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s reported or forecasted results, in each case calculated in accordance with GAAP, can provide useful supplemental information for investors because they facilitate a period to period comparative assessment of the Company’s operating performance relative to its performance based on reported or forecasted results under GAAP, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance and eliminate certain charges that management believes do not reflect the Company’s operations and underlying operational performance. The Company’s definition of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies because other companies may not calculate them in the same manner as the Company does and should not be viewed in isolation from nor as alternatives to net income or diluted EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Venezuela Adjustments

The impact of foreign currency fluctuations in Venezuela and the price increases the Company implements as a result of the highly inflationary economy in that market can each, when considered in isolation, have a disproportionately large impact to the Company’s consolidated results despite the offsetting nature of these drivers and that net sales in Venezuela, which represent less than 1% of the Company’s consolidated net sales, are not material to our consolidated results. Therefore, in certain instances, the Company believes it is helpful to provide additional information with respect to these factors as reported and excluding the impact of Venezuela to illustrate the disproportionate nature of Venezuela’s individual pricing and foreign exchange impact to the Company’s consolidated results. However, excluding the impact of Venezuela from these measures is not in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to the presentation and discussion thereof calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

China grant income is no longer excluded from the Company’s adjusted results and prior period information has been updated to reflect the current period presentation.

The following is a reconciliation of net income, presented and reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, to net income adjusted for certain items:

(1) Based on interim income tax reporting rules, these expenses are not considered discrete items. As a result, the Company's full year effective tax rate is impacted by these items. When applying the full year effective tax rate to year-to-date income, the Company's year-to-date tax provision recorded with respect to these non-GAAP adjustments is different from the forecasted full-year tax provision impact of these items. As a consequence, adjustments to the year-to-date and quarterly tax impacts will be recorded as the adjusted full year effective tax rate is applied to income in subsequent periods. Additionally, adjustments to items unrelated to these non-GAAP adjustments may have an effect on the income tax impact of these non-GAAP adjustments in subsequent periods. The Company plans to update the income tax impact of these items in subsequent interim reporting periods.
(2) Excludes tax (benefit)/expense as follows:
