Nu Skin Enterprises Offers 2009 Guidance During Annual Investor Day
Date:12/4/2008

PROVO, Utah, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE: NUS) today announces its 2009 financial guidance to coincide with its annual Investor Day presentation this morning at 9 a.m. at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. During today's investor presentation, senior management will discuss the company's operational results and outline plans for 2009.

"The Nu Skin business is on track and we look forward to rounding out 2008 on a positive note," said Truman Hunt, chief executive officer. "Our 2009 business plan is designed to maintain our current rate of top-line local currency growth, while further increasing profitability. As we continue to look for efficiencies, we are focused on improving cost structures in our international markets, including Japan. We are currently developing our plans, but expect that we could incur up to $12 million in restructuring expenses during the first half of the year."

"For 2009, we project revenue to be in the $1.240 to $1.270 billion range, a 3 to 5 percent increase in local currency revenue, offset by an anticipated negative currency impact of 3 to 5 percent," said Ritch Wood, chief financial officer. "With a projected operating margin of 9.6 to 10.3 percent, earnings per share for 2009 are projected to be in the $1.10 to $1.20 range. This guidance does not include the impact of restructuring charges we plan to take during the first half of 2009. Once we finalize our plans we will provide more detailed information on our restructuring efforts."

A webcast of the event, including the financial information to be presented, will be available on the investor section of the company's Web site at http://www.nuskinenterprises.com. A replay of the webcast, along with accompanying slides, will be made available from the same location through Wednesday, Dec. 31.
