COPPELL, Texas, May 04, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX), a leading developer and provider of nutritional supplements and skin care products based on Real Food Technology(R) solutions, today reported for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 net sales of $50.9 million, and a net loss of $4.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Quarterly sales declined $9.8 million or 16.1%, compared to the first quarter of 2010. The net loss increased by $2.0 million for the quarter largely due to the effect of the sales decline in the United States along with the costs associated with the launch of operations in Mexico.

Randy Bancino, president of international operations, said, "We are pleased with the initial launch of Mannatech Mexico, and have been extremely impressed with the dedication and energy shown by our new independent Associates there. The warm welcome and support extended to us by our Mexican Associate Leaders has been gratifying, and we look forward to working closely with them to build a substantial and lasting business opportunity."
New independent Associates and Members totaled 19,057 in the first quarter of 2011, compared to 20,913 in the first quarter of 2010, an decrease of 9.0%. Total independent Associate and Member count based on a 12-month trailing period was approximately 392,000 as of March 31, 2011 as compared to 485,000 as of March 31, 2010.
