RBC Life Sciences Reports 2012 Results

March 29, 2013

IRVING, Texas, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — RBC Life Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB: RBCL), a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements, and wound care and pain management products, today reported consolidated net sales of $25.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, a 12% decrease over 2011 consolidated net sales of $28.5 million. For the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $361,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $71,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, during 2011.

“During 2012, sales of our Nutritional Products decreased by $2.8 million, primarily due to a reduction in sales to our international licensees, as well as a decrease in sales to our Associate network in North America. Our Medical Products sales decreased $0.5 million, largely as a result of the Chapter 11 filing by our largest customer in this segment while it seeks to settle a reimbursement dispute with Medicare,” said RBC Life Sciences CEO, Clinton H. Howard. “The net loss for the year resulted primarily from lower operating margins as a result of the sales decline, as well as increased operating costs related to the first full year of branch office operations in Taiwan and higher product testing costs for compliance with GMP regulations. Our higher operating costs were partially offset by a casualty gain recognized in connection with the replacement of the roof of our facility in Irving, Texas and reimbursement for a related claim under a replacement cost insurance policy. While we were disappointed with our financial performance, the higher level of product testing costs are largely behind us and we are encouraged by recent developments, including the launch of nutritional supplement sales in Australia, and the granting of a U.S. Patent for one of our nutritional supplements, NeuroBright(®), a unique formulation that nutritionally supports cognitive function, learning and remembering. We are also particularly pleased with the continuing success of our largest selling product Stem-Kine(TM), which has been shown in human studies to enable an increase in the production of stem cells.”
