IRVING, Texas, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (RBC Life Sciences: OTCBB: RBCL) - RBC Life Sciences, Inc., a provider of proprietary nutritional supplements, wound care and pain management products, today reported consolidated net sales of $6.54 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, compared to net sales of $6.98 million for the same period during 2010. The Company also reported net earnings of $143,000, or $0.01 per share, compared to net earnings of $211,000, or $0.01 per share, for the same quarter last year.
"Due to a variety of logistical factors, net sales in our largest revenue channel declined during the first quarter of 2011 resulting in an overall decline in consolidated net sales," said RBC Life Sciences President and CEO, Clinton H. Howard. "However, we saw a 37% increase in Associate network sales during the quarter, and the number of individuals who joined our Associate network more than doubled. This growth is the result of a program we introduced in March 2010 that allows customers in Southeast Asia to enroll in the Associate network and purchase our Nutritional Products. Because of the very positive reception in this market, we plan to open a branch office in Taiwan later this year."
During the first quarter of 2011, the Company also reported a 10% increase in net sales of Medical Products to $1.72 million.
