These resources will go to support our markets and Associates who show potential and demonstrate a strong desire and effort in driving on-going sales and recruiting."

Stephen Fenstermacher, Co-CEO & chief financial officer, added, "Over the past year, we have focused on positioning our cost of sales, commission costs and operating expenses at efficient levels. The results of this quarter again indicate the positive impact of our efforts. Now our challenge is to improve operating profit by building our finished products sales base. To do so, our incentive plan and other marketing programs are designed to support a balanced approach for Associates to grow their businesses. By growing their businesses, Associates expand their potential to provide Mannatech's products to people worldwide. To support them, we will open a meeting facility in South Africa in May, and we intend to launch operations in Mexico in the first quarter of 2011. International expansion is a significant priority for Mannatech in 2010 and beyond."
