Nu Skin Expands Direct Selling in China

July 18, 2013

Approved for five more provinces, 30 districts.

Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. received official notification from China's Ministry of Commerce of its approval to commence direct selling activities in five additional provinces and 30 districts. The provinces include Anhui, Gansu, Chongqing, Shaanxi and Yunnan. The licensing process included a review of the company's operations and is the sixth time that the Ministry of Commerce has granted Nu Skin new direct selling licenses. Nu Skin's direct selling footprint will now include 19 of the country's 32 provinces and municipalities.

"We are pleased that China's government has granted us authorization to expand our direct selling activities into additional provinces and districts," said Truman Hunt, president and chief executive officer. "We believe the government's approval of our application is a reflection of our significant investment in China over the past several years, our commitment to enhancing the lives of China's consumers and our desire to be a constructive part of China's social framework.  

"We continue to build for the long-term potential of this important market and these new licenses allow us to further expand our direct selling coverage.  Additionally, in an effort to better support our sales force and consumers in China, we are accelerating our infrastructure plans, including tripling the number of stores and sales support centers by 2015, as opposed to 2017 as previously announced,  and expanding our manufacturing capabilities within the market by the end of 2013," concluded Hunt.
