EMAIL TO ASSOCIATES:

Subject:     Mannatech Announces Intent to Commence a Cash Tender Offer to Purchase up to $16 Million of Its Common Stock


We are pleased to announce that Mannatech has announced its intent to conduct a modified Dutch auction cash tender offer to purchase up to $16 million of its outstanding common stock, par value $0.0001 per share.
 
“This tender offer reflects Mannatech’s confidence in the future outlook of our business and the Company's long-term value and represents another important step in implementing our previously announced strategic plan, which contemplated reducing overall share count and using capital for the benefit of shareholders,” said Alfredo “Al” Bala, CEO and President of Mannatech. “The Company has had a share purchase program in place, and with this tender offer, we will take an even more significant step forward in demonstrating our confidence in the future of our business.”

In a modified Dutch auction tender offer, the company conducting the buyback specifies a price range at which it will buy back shares, and each shareholder who is interested in selling shares may offer to purchase them at the minimum price they are willing to accept per share, as well as specify the amount of shares they are willing to sell back. The company examines the offers and buys the shares at the lowest price that allows it to repurchase the pre-determined amount of shares.

The Company anticipates that Georgeson Securities Corporation will be the dealer manager for the tender offer, Georgeson LLC will serve as the information agent for the tender offer, and Computershare Trust Company N.A. will serve as the depositary for the tender offer.
