Nu Skin Enterprises Enters Into a Letter of Intent to Acquire LifeGen Technologies
Date:10/27/2011

at time, LifeGen's proprietary genetic science has supported Nu Skin's 'super class' of anti-aging products, including the company's most recent introduction of the ageLOC R2 nutritional supplement. The acquisition will further enhance Nu Skin's position as a leader in the anti-aging industry by bringing LifeGen, a company based on more than 30 years of aging research, in house.

"We are pleased to see LifeGen joining the Nu Skin family and cementing our relationship with the company's research and development team as we continue to break new ground in understanding the relationship between gene activity and the nutritional control of the aging process," said Richard Weindruch, Ph.D., co-founder of LifeGen Technologies.

"Since 2009, we have had the pleasure of working closely with Nu Skin's research and development team. We have found significant synergies between our anti-aging expertise and Nu Skin's innovative product development process and extensive knowledge of natural ingredients," added Tomas Prolla, Ph.D., co-founder of LifeGen Technologies. "Working together, LifeGen and Nu Skin will continue to develop the world's largest database of gene expression changes associated with aging and nutritional interventions. We believe this unique resource will allow Nu Skin to continue to launch science-based products that effectively slow aging."

Pursuant to the terms of the letter of intent, the acquisition is subject to completion of a definitive purchase agreement, due diligence and other closing conditions. Assuming satisfactory due diligence, Nu Skin expects to close the acquisition prior to the end of the year
