ions and benefited from growth throughout the region, with particular strength in Eastern Europe. Executive and active distributor counts in the region increased 55 percent and 41 percent, respectively, compared to the prior-year period.

South Asia/Pacific. Revenue in South Asia/Pacific was $28.9 million for the third quarter, a 14 percent improvement over the prior year. Regional results were driven by solid performance in most markets. The region's third- quarter executive count improved 7 percent while the active distributor count increased 2 percent compared to the same period in 2007.

Operational Performance

The company's gross margin in the third quarter was 81.7 percent, a 40-basis-point decrease over the prior-year period. The decline is due in part to a shift in global revenue mix from Japan to other markets with slightly lower gross margins and by an increase in sales of the Galvanic Spa(R) System, which has a slightly lower gross margin than the company average.

Selling expenses as a percent of revenue were 42.6 percent in the third quarter, a 50 basis-point improvement. General and administrative expenses for the quarter were $90.9 million, or 29.3 percent of revenue, a 300 basis point improvement over the third quarter of 2007, which included approximately $5 million of costs associated with hosting the company's global convention.

In the Other income/expense section of its income statement, the company incurred an expense of $8.3 million during the quarter. A primarily non-cash foreign currency translation expense accounted for $6.6 million of this expense.

The company's income tax rate for the quarter was 24 percent. In addition, the company's cash position at the end of the quarter was $101.3 million, while dividend payments during the quarter were $7.0 million. The company repurchased $1.6 million of its outstanding shares during the quarter.
