05/12/2020 | 07:02am EDT
Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX), a global health and wellness company committed to transforming lives to make a better world, today announced financial results for its first quarter of 2020.
Quarter End Results
First quarter net sales for 2020 were $36.6 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, or 3.6%, as compared to $38.0 million in the first quarter of 2019. Income from operations increased to $2.0 million for the first quarter 2020, from $1.1 million in the same period in 2019.
Net income was $2.8 million, or $1.15 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2020, as compared to a net income of $0.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the first quarter 2019.
Gross profit as a percentage of sales improved to 80.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to 80.4% for the same period in 2019.
Commission and incentives as a percentage of net sales was 40.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2020, as compared to 40.0% for the same period in the prior year.
For the three months ended March 31, 2020, overall selling and administrative expenses decreased by $0.7 million to $6.9 million, as compared to $7.6 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in selling and administrative expenses were due to a $0.7 million decrease in payroll costs.
For the three months ended March 31, 2020, other operating costs decreased by $0.8 million to $5.3 million, as compared to $6.1 million for the same period in 2019 primarily due to a $0.3 million decrease in office expenses, a $0.3 million decrease in legal and consulting fees and a $0.2 million decrease in travel and entertainment.
For the three months ended March 31, 2020, taxes were a $0.9 million benefit, compared to the same period in the prior year, which had a $0.3 million provision. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was different from the federal statutory rate due primarily to the $1.2 million benefit recorded in connection with the carryback of U.S. net operating losses as allowed by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), enacted March 27, 2020. The effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was different from the federal statutory rate due primarily to the associated valuation allowance recorded on losses in certain jurisdictions.
The approximate number of new and continuing independent associate and preferred customer positions held by individuals in Mannatech’s network and associated with purchases of products as of March 31, 2020 and 2019 were approximately 166,000 and 203,000, respectively. As the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") spread into our markets, recruiting decreased 8.2% in the first quarter of 2020 as compared to the first quarter of 2019. The number of new independent associate and preferred customer positions in the company’s network for the first quarter of 2020 was approximately 18,687 as compared to 20,363 in 2019.
In addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP, this press release and related tables include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including a presentation of constant dollar measures. We disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors because they are an indicator of the strength and performance of ongoing business operations. The constant currency figures are financial measures used by management to provide investors an additional perspective on trends. Although we believe the non-GAAP financial measures enhance investors’ understanding of our business and performance, these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered an exclusive alternative to accompanying GAAP financial measures. Please see the accompanying table entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Sales, Gross Profit and Income From Operations in Constant Dollars)
To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we disclose operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations. We refer to these adjusted financial measures as constant dollar items, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, we calculate current year results and prior year results at a constant exchange rate, which is the prior year’s rate. Currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant currency growth rates.
