RBC Life Sciences Announces 2009 Year End Results

IRVING, Texas, March 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (RBC Life Sciences: OTC Bulletin Board: RBCL) — RBC Life Sciences, Inc., a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements, wound care and pain management products, reported today company-wide net sales of $24.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared to net sales of $30.4 million for the same period during 2008.

The company also reported a net loss of $335,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, during 2009, compared to net earnings of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, during 2008.

"In 2009, our international licensees were hobbled by the global economy overseas, which contributed disproportionately to our decline in sales," said RBC Life Sciences President and CEO John W. Price. "We did, however, see sales in this channel begin to increase late in the year as global economic conditions also began to show signs of improvement.  A bright spot in 2009 was the growth of our North American network marketing base. Sales domestically grew more than 4% percent in 2009 compared to the previous year."

Mr. Price also said that RBC Life Sciences is now compliant with industry-wide, FDA-required Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). "The company invested substantial resources to achieve GMP compliance during 2009 and will continue to do so annually to maintain our GMP status," said Mr. Price. GMPs ensure that companies adhere to practices that promote product safety, quality and efficacy.
