"While the first quarter was a respectable start to the year for USANA, net sales were softer than anticipated, particularly around the Lunar New Year holiday in a few key Asia Pacific markets," said Kevin Guest, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. "That said, we made progress in executing our customer experience strategy by rolling out more Active Nutrition products in key markets and by enhancing onboarding programs and training tools."

Mr. Guest added, "The operating environment in Asia Pacific has become more challenging, particularly in China, where the escalation of COVID-19 has resulted in mass lockdowns, restrictions, and other disruptions. As we look ahead, we are adjusting our strategy to support our teams and Associates in these markets, and we remain optimistic about delivering results in the face of these challenges. We remain focused on executing our strategic initiatives, which we believe will deliver long-term, sustainable growth for all stakeholders."

$1.100 - $1.200 billion

$1.125 - $1.225 billion

Diluted EPS

$5.00 - $5.70

$5.25 - $6.00

Doug Hekking, Chief Financial Officer, said, "Despite some sales softness across a few key markets and ongoing inflationary pressures, our first quarter operating results were within the range reflected in our internal forecast. We are, however, reducing our net sales and diluted EPS outlook for fiscal 2022 due to the elevated uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 environment in China."

Management Commentary Document and Conference Call

For more information on the USANA’s operating results, please see the Management Commentary document, which has been posted on the Company’s website (http://ir.usana.com) under the Investor Relations section. USANA’s management team will hold a conference call and webcast to discuss today’s announcement with investors on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 at 11:00 AM Eastern Time.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company prepares its financial statements using U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Constant currency net sales, earnings, EPS and other currency-related financial information (collectively, "Financial Results") are non-GAAP financial measures that remove the impact of fluctuations in foreign-currency exchange rates ("FX") and help facilitate period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s Financial Results that we believe provide investors an additional perspective on trends and underlying business results. Constant currency Financial Results are calculated by translating the current period's Financial Results at the same average exchange rates in effect during the applicable prior-year period and then comparing this amount to the prior-year period's Financial Results.
