Natural Health Trends Corp., through its subsidiaries, is an international direct-selling and e-commerce company marketing premium quality personal care products throughout Asia, North America and Europe. The company’s revolutionary products – including anti-aging and hydrating cleansers, creams, lotions, serums and toners, as well as weight management, intimacy support and energy enhancing supplements – are sold under the trusted NHT Global brand, which is currently available in more than 40 countries. NHTC’s mission is to continue expanding upon its wellness tradition through a commitment to innovation and new health trends, providing a platform upon which to create sustainable value for both customers and shareholders moving forward.
In the first quarter of 2015, NHTC utilized this strategy to achieve considerable financial growth. According to its quarterly report, the company realized a 76 percent year-over-year increase in revenue for the period, with the majority of this growth coming in the competitive Hong Kong market. According to the company’s recently announced second quarter estimate, it has built upon its strong start to 2015 in recent months. NHTC estimated revenue for the second quarter to be $69.7 million, which, when verified, will represent a year-over-year increase of more than 100 percent.
“We have delivered a great start for the year,” Chris Sharng, president of NHTC, stated in a news release. “Our success in Greater China continues, attributable to the effectiveness of our leadership development, products, training and marketing programs.”
In addition to posting strong results in Asia, NHTC made considerable progress in North American personal care markets during the first half of the year. Through these efforts, the company could gain improved access to the consistently performing U.S. personal care industry, which, according to Statista, has recorded annual rises in sales for more than two decades, accounting for over $283 billion in 2013. Recent progress toward building brand recognition throughout North America could allow NHTC to increase its share of this expansive market in the future.
“We are also excited to see significant increases in North America, albeit from a small base,” continued Sharng. “Along with our initiatives in Southeast Asia, we may develop more sources for growth.”
The company’s recent financial performance makes it an intriguing investment opportunity in the months to come. Look for NHTC to continue building upon its established presence in the Asian personal care market, as well as expanding upon its recent progress in North America, in order to promote sustainable shareholder returns for the foreseeable future.
