"We are off to a strong start to fiscal 2020, generating 45% year over year growth of adjusted EBITDA and 86% adjusted EPS growth over the prior year period,” stated LifeVantage President and Chief Executive Officer, Darren Jensen. “We continue to focus on driving revenue growth through execution of our key initiatives. A significant driver of our 2020 growth goals revolves around the early October launch of Protandim® NAD Synergizer. This recent addition to our flagship Protandim® product line has received a strong response across our customer base and to date has been one of our most successful new product launches in Company history. We devoted a significant portion of our efforts during the first quarter toward preparing for the second quarter product launch. In addition to the launch of Protandim® NAD Synergizer, we are seeing significant synergy with our Protandim® Nrf1 and Nrf2 Synergizers that is resonating with customers. The combination of our three Protandim® offerings, bundled into a stack called Protandim® Tri-Synergizer is contributing to increasing order sizes and increased subscription sales."

"Based on our strong first quarter results, continued execution of our key initiatives and the strong early performance of our new product introduction, we feel confident with our growth outlook and reiterate our fiscal 2020 guidance for revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS," continued Mr. Jensen.

First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

For the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019, the Company reported revenue of $56.2 million, an increase of 1.1% as compared to $55.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Revenue in the Americas for the first quarter decreased 2.2% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and revenue in the Asia/Pacific & Europe region increased 10.4% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was positively impacted 0.2 million, or 0.4%, by foreign currency fluctuations associated with revenue generated in international markets when compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $47.0 million, or 83.7% of revenue, compared to $46.4 million, or 83.5% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2019. The increase in gross margin is primarily due to decreased inventory obsolescence and handling costs and changes to our geographic and product sales mix.

Commissions and incentives expense for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $26.8 million, or 47.6% of revenue, compared to $27.8 million, or 50.0% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2019. The decrease in commissions and incentives expense as a percentage of revenue is due mainly to the timing of promotional and incentive programs and investment in our red carpet program.

Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $17.7 million, or 31.5% of revenue, compared to $17.3 million, or 31.1% of revenue, for the same period in fiscal 2019. Adjusted for nonrecurring expenses, which are detailed in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables included at the end of this press release, adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 were $17.5 million, or 31.0% of revenue, compared to adjusted non-GAAP SG&A expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 of $17.1 million, or 30.8% of revenue. The year over year increase in non-GAAP SG&A primarily was due to increased employee headcount and related compensation costs and increased depreciation expenses associated with our investment in new technology assets that have been placed in service.

Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $2.6 million, or 4.6% of revenue, compared to $1.3 million, or 2.4% of revenue, for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. Accounting for non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, adjusted non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $2.8 million, or 5.0% of revenue, compared to $1.5 million, or 2.7% of revenue, for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share. This compares to net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 of $0.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. Accounting for the non-GAAP adjustments noted previously, net of tax, adjusted non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 increased 85.6% year over year, to $1.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. This compares to adjusted non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 of $1.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 44.7% to $4.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2020, compared to $3.3 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2019.

Balance Sheet & Liquidity

The Company used $3.5 million of cash from operations during the first quarter of fiscal 2020 compared to generating of $2.4 million in the comparable period of fiscal 2019. The Company's cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2019 were $13.0 million, compared to $18.8 million at June 30, 2019.

Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance

The Company is reiterating its outlook for fiscal 2020, which was initially provided when the Company reported fourth fiscal quarter and full fiscal year 2019 results on August 14, 2019.The Company expects to generate revenue in the range of $235 million to $245 million in fiscal year 2020 and adjusted EBITDA of $20 million to $22 million, with adjusted earnings per share in the range of $0.62 to $0.71, which assumes a full year tax rate in the range of 19% to 22%. The Company's adjusted non-GAAP EBITDA and adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance excludes any non-operating or non-recurring expenses that may materialize during fiscal 2020. The Company is not providing GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance for fiscal 2020 due to the potential occurrence of one or more non-operating, one-time expenses, which the Company does not believe it can reliably predict.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We define Non-GAAP Net Income as GAAP net income less certain tax adjusted non-recurring one-time expenses incurred during the period and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share as Non-GAAP Net Income divided by weighted-average shares outstanding.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share are presented solely as supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe these measures are a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share internally as benchmarks to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present reconciliations of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Share, which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income and Earnings per Share, our most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
