Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. posted record first-quarter results with revenue of $550.1 million, a 19% improvement over the prior-year period. Additionally, the company announced that it is increasing its full-year 2013 revenue guidance by $190 million to be in the $2.51 to $2.54 billion range.
 
 
Revenue in the Americas improved 15% to $76.5 million US revenue grew by 7% during the quarter. The number of sales leaders in the region improved 9% while the number of actives decreased 4% compared to the prior year.
 
 
"We kicked off the year with tremendous momentum, generating 22 percent local-currency revenue growth this quarter," said Truman Hunt, president and chief executive officer. "We are pleased with the overall direction of the business, particularly with trends in the North Asia and Greater China regions. The first quarter marked the third consecutive quarter of year-over-year local-currency growth for Japan, while South Korea continues to be a solid contributor to our success. Greater China continues to be our fastest-growing region, with each market within the region posting solid quarterly growth."
 
"Given the positive momentum of the business, we are on track to achieve another record year of revenue and earnings," said Hunt. "Our anti-aging product portfolio continues to drive strong consumer demand and impressive growth in our global sales force.
 
"The ageLOC product platform has become a game-changer for Nu Skin, and we believe this fall's introduction of the ageLOC weight management system will be a meaningful growth driver in our business. We are currently training and preparing our sales force for the limited-time-offer in the second half of the year, and believe the launch will be the largest in company history," Hunt concluded.
