LifeVantage Corporation (Nasdaq:LFVN) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended March 31, 2017.

“We began to see the turn in sequential sales momentum as the third quarter progressed,” stated LifeVantage President and Chief Executive Officer Darren Jensen

“While sales were negatively impacted early in the quarter, we finished the third quarter with reaccelerating sales growth as we were finalizing the implementation of remedies relating to a recent review of international policies and procedures.

We enter the fourth quarter with renewed business momentum and completed a successful global convention in April that included our rebranding of several key product lines, the introduction of product bundles that deliver greater value for customers and distributors, and integrated applications and technology solutions that were well received by distributors.

Finally, we are progressing with plans to broaden our geographical footprint, and look forward to discussing specific activities to support this growth as the plan progresses.”
