    Labor SMART, Inc. Continues to See Sales Increases Year Over Year
    Weather Issues Delayed New Branch Openings
    Marketwired Labor SMART, Inc.
    HIRAM, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) (the "Company"), an emerging provider of on-demand blue collar staffing primarily in the southeastern United States, today announced continued record revenue achievements for March 2014. Revenue overall for March 2014 was $1.438 million, a 25.7 percent increase over the $1.144 million achieved in March 2013. It should be noted that March 2013 was a five week month verses the four-weeks that made up March 2014. For those offices that have been open for a year, revenue for 2014 was $1,005,282.16, an eight percent increase over revenue achieved during the last four weeks of March 2013.

    Ryan Schadel, Labor SMART's CEO, stated, "Although we were impacted this month with significant weather related issues in areas of the country where we focus our efforts, we are very pleased with these results. Without the weather issues I believe we would have achieved revenues of approximately $1.6-1.7 million for the month."

    Schadel noted that while weather impacted revenues, it had more of an effect on the company's pace of new branch openings. "I expect that we will make up the time lost in this area," said Schadel. He said the company is not adjusting its revenue projections for the year and remains committed to achieving revenue of $30 million for 2014.

    Labor SMART's growth strategy of organic growth, new offices and acquisitions continues to be reflected in record revenues for the past 18 months. "The recent strengthening of our sales and business development team as well as our planned new branch openings and potential acquisitions in the coming months lead us to remain very bullish about the coming year," said Schadel.

    Locations in Savannah and Knoxville Continue to Further Company's Growth in Southeastern US
    Marketwired Labor SMART, Inc.
    April 1, 2014 9:15 AM

    HIRAM, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Labor SMART, Inc. (OTCQB: LTNC) (the "Company"), an emerging provider of on-demand blue collar staffing primarily in the southeastern United States, today announced the opening of two new offices in Savannah, Georgia and Knoxville, Tennessee.

    "These two new markets are an important addition to our growing footprint. Our research of these markets show a strong labor force and excellent growth potential in the construction sector, which is one of our primary targets for new clients," said Ryan Schadel, president and CEO of Labor SMART. "We have had a very strong beginning to 2014, despite unusually harsh weather that has plagued most of the country during this period. We are very optimistic as we enter the spring and summer months that we can continue to achieve our growth goals and expect a flurry of new branch openings and perhaps several acquisitions." Schadel also pointed to a recent Wall Street Journal economics blog that indicated that about 10 percent of all new jobs created since the end of the recession have been either temp or contract positions.

    Labor SMART's experience so far this year reflects this as well. The company has reported substantial increases in year-over-year sales among those offices that have been in operation for more than a year. The company has publicly stated that its growth plan includes organic growth among existing offices, the addition of new offices like these, and potential acquisitions.

    The new offices are in operation now and will serve clients in their respective markets.

    Schadel also said the company expects to file its 10K for fiscal 2013 within the allotted time of the automatic extension, which the company filed late last week.

  • Nature's Sunshine Products Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Financial Results
    GlobeNewswire Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc.
    22 hours ago
    Fourth quarter net sales revenue growth of 5.7 percent year-over-year (6.8 percent in local currency)
    Significant investment spending, resulting in lower operating income
    Board of Directors approved a $0.10 per share quarterly dividend
    Repurchased 140,331 shares of common stock during 2013
    LEHI, Utah, March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc. (NATR), a leading natural health and wellness company engaged in the manufacture and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products, today reported its consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013, and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share.

    "We're pleased with our fourth quarter results which reflect continued progress across both our NSP and Synergy businesses," commented Gregory L. Probert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "In addition to Synergy's record sales quarter and NSP Russia, Central and Eastern Europe's fifth consecutive quarter of year-over-year sales growth, we experienced double digit growth in NSP Mexico and NSP Central America."

    "Our performance is the early result of our incremental investments in sales and marketing personnel, R&D and new product development, Distributor training and sales incentive programs. These investments amounted to $2.2 million of additional SG&A expense in the fourth quarter, the majority of which is recurring and will negatively impact our near-term operating income margin. However, these essential investments position us to drive sales growth in all of our markets to a level that will restore our operating income margin to double digits during 2015."
