Nutraceutical Reports Fiscal 2008 Q1 Results

PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nutraceutical International Corporation (Nasdaq: NUTR) today reported results for the fiscal 2008 first quarter ended December 31, 2007. Net sales for the fiscal 2008 first quarter were $41.1 million compared to $35.8 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2007. For the first quarter of fiscal 2008, net income was $3.2 million, or $0.28 diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $3.4 million, or $0.30 diluted earnings per share, for the same quarter of fiscal 2007.

Bill Gay, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "The growth in net sales of approximately 15% for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 compared to the same quarter of fiscal 2007 reflects the positive contributions of the six acquisitions completed during fiscal 2007. We remain focused on expanding our branded product sales through innovative marketing and sales programs that build long-term loyalty with our health and natural food store customers. Improved profitability and EBITDA from our acquisitions can normally be achieved within one to two years. Managing controllable expenses and gaining consolidation synergies from the fiscal 2007 acquired businesses will remain a dominant goal for the next few quarters. In spite of the current US economic slowdown, cost pressures and increasing competitive conditions, we remain confident in our business as we strive to serve our customers and take advantage of synergistic opportunities in the Healthy Foods Channel. We appreciate everyone that has helped us build a strong and successful business in the nutritional industry."


We are an integrated manufacturer, marketer, distributor and retailer of branded nutritional supplements and other natural products sold primarily to and through domestic health and natural food stores. Internationally, we market and distribute branded nutritional supplements and other natural products to and through health and natural product distributors and retailers. Our core business strategy is to acquire, integrate and operate, from beginning to end, the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of branded nutritional supplement businesses in the natural products industry. We believe that the consolidation and integration of these acquired businesses provides ongoing financial synergies through increased scale and market penetration, as well as strengthened customer relationships.
