Terminatedramp, I am inclined to agree with you about distributor turnover (I call it subscriber churn), but I don't see any evidence one way or the other that would support your view. The data simply isn't available to confirm or deny a high churn rate. I am surprised that the SEC disclosure requirements does not require the release of this data -- I think you rightly point out that it would be materially useful for any investor or analyst trying to understand the meaning of the numbers that the company does report. What do you think are the chances they will put that data into the 10-k filing for 2007?
Mr Egg Usana revealed the dropout rate to the Wall Street Journal. It can also be derived from the Usana table of distributors, found in the annual reports. But you have to be able to do the math. (Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) If you are having trouble, then you need to consult with a CPA or a 6th grade math teacher. Len can't do it. Either he didn't pass 6th grade math or revealing this number would hurt Usana and his own MLM company. Do you know how much a bottle of mud costs?
