Second Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results
For the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company reported revenue at the top end of previously announced guidance of $48.9 million, a 5.9% decrease compared to $52.0 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2016. Year-over-year quarterly revenue reflects a decrease of 6.1% in the Americas and a 5.1% decrease in the Asia/Pacific & Europe region. Revenues in the Company’s United States and Hong Kong markets decreased for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 as the Company began to takes steps, following the completion of the independent review conducted by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, to help ensure that the Company’s products are not distributed or sold into countries without complying with applicable customs, tax and other regulatory requirements and to appropriately verify the residency of individuals who want to become independent distributors of the Company. Consistent with these regulatory requirements, in the future independent distributors may be able to purchase a limited quantity of such products for personal consumption in one or more of these countries.

Commissions and incentives expense for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $23.5 million, or 48.1% of revenue, compared to $27.3 million, or 52.5% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2016. Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $17.2 million, or 35.2% of revenue, compared to $13.8 million, or 26.6% of revenue, in the comparable period of fiscal 2016.

Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $0.7 million, compared to $3.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016. Operating income during the second quarter of fiscal 2017 included approximately $1.7 million of costs associated with the Audit Committee’s independent review and $0.1 million of net executive team severance, recruiting and transition expenses. Operating income during the second quarter of fiscal 2016 included approximately $0.4 million of costs associated with executive team recruiting and transition expenses and $0.1 million of administrative costs associated with the reverse stock split. Adjusted EBITDA was $3.9 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, compared to $4.5 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2016.

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, calculated on 14.1 million fully diluted shares.  This compares to net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 of $1.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, calculated on 14.0 million fully diluted shares. Adjusted for costs associated with the audit committee’s independent review of $1.2 million and net executive severance, recruiting and transition expenses of $0.1 million, all net of tax, adjusted Non-GAAP net income was $1.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, or $0.11 per diluted share; compared to $1.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share for the comparable period of fiscal 2016. Non-GAAP adjustments to net income during the second quarter of fiscal 2016 included $0.3 million of executive team transition costs and reverse split administrative expenses, net of tax.

In the first half of fiscal 2017, revenue in the Americas increased 4.0%, while revenue in Asia/Pacific & Europe increased 15.6%. Revenue for the first half of fiscal year 2017 was positively impacted $3.4 million, or 3.5%, by foreign currency fluctuations associated with revenue generated in several international markets.

Commissions and incentives expense for the first half of fiscal 2017 was $49.8 million, or 48.0% of revenue, compared to $49.3 million, or 50.7% of revenue, for the first half of fiscal 2016. SG&A for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was $35.0 million, or 33.7% of revenue, compared to $27.5 million, or 28.2% of revenue, in the prior year period.

Operating income for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was $2.7 million, compared to $5.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016. Operating income for the six months ended December 31, 2016 includes $2.7 million for expenses associated with the Audit Committee independent review and $0.1 million for net executive severance, recruiting and transition expenses. Operating income in the first six months of fiscal 2016 includes $1.3 million of net executive severance, recruiting and transition costs as well as $0.1 million for expenses associated with the reverse stock split completed during October 2015.

Net income for the first half of fiscal 2017 was $1.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $2.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share for the first half of fiscal 2016. On a tax adjusted basis, adjusting for previously announced expenses associated with the audit committee independent review of $1.9 million, along with a $0.1 million of costs for net executive severance, recruiting and transition expenses, adjusted Non-GAAP net income for the six months ended December 31, 2016 was $3.5 million, or $0.24 per diluted share. On a tax adjusted basis, adjusting for executive severance, recruiting and transition costs of $0.8 million, along with the $0.1 million for expenses associated with the reserve stock split in October 2015, adjusted Non-GAAP net income for the first six months of fiscal year 2016 was $3.6 million or $0.26 per diluted share. 

Balance Sheet & Liquidity
The Company generated $5.1 million of cash from operations during the first six months of fiscal year 2017 and $8.5 million in the same period last year. The year-over-year reduction in cash provided by operations during the first half of fiscal 2017 primarily relates to the lower level of net income relative to the prior year period and cash used to reduce payables. The Company's cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2016 were $11.7 million compared to $7.9 million at June 30, 2016.

Fiscal Year 2017 Guidance
The Company is reiterating fiscal year 2017 annual guidance. The Company expects to generate revenue in the range of $207 million to $212 million during fiscal year 2017, and anticipates adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.40 to $0.47 and GAAP earnings per diluted share in the range of $0.26 to $0.33. The Company's earnings per diluted share guidance excludes any non-operating or non-recurring expenses that may materialize during fiscal 2017, including estimated costs of $2.5 million to $3.0 million associated with the recently completed review by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.  We define Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share as GAAP net income less certain tax adjusted non-recurring one-time expenses incurred during the period.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share are presented solely as supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe these measures are a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share internally as benchmarks to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income and Earnings per Share, our most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
