because when people ask hlf CEO about how much product is sold to customers outside the company in May 2012 conference call? The CEO answered something like this, we do not track the number and do not believe the number is relevant to the business or investors.
How can those sales irrelevant to investors. And the company does not keep tracking the sales number???
I think it would be hard to track the goods sold outside by distributors as they are sold at home or car trunk. However if a distributor keeps ordering products whether he sold to outside or consuming himself it does not matter because he has to move the goods to stay. So the company can provide the info as how many repeat orders. It will prove it is not p scheme.
