RBC Life Sciences, Inc., a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements, wound care and pain management products, reported consolidated net sales of $7.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, compared to net sales of $7.8 million for the same period during 2010. The Company also reported net earnings of $17,000, or $0.00 per share, compared to net earnings of $172,000, or $0.01 per share, for the same quarter last year. Net sales were $14.0 million and $14.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, while net earnings were $160,000 and $383,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
"Due to a variety of logistical factors and weakness in some international markets, net sales in our largest revenue channel declined during the first six months of 2011 resulting in an overall decline in consolidated net sales and net earnings," said RBC Life Sciences President and CEO, Clinton H. Howard. "However, we continue to see growth in Associate network sales, which increased 57% during the first six months of 2011. Sales growth in this channel accelerated during the second quarter following the introduction in May of our exciting new product, Stem-Kine(TM)."
Stem-Kine is a dietary supplement that has been shown in published human clinical studies to nutritionally enable bone marrow and other stem-cell-producing tissues to increase their production of stem cells, which form the natural repair and renewal system of the body. The Company distributes Stem-Kine under an exclusive license agreement that covers the U.S. and 41 other countries.
