STOCK OF THE WEEK: NAII

Natural Alternative International (NAII)
makes nutritional products and provides related services. Located in San Marcos, CA, the Company produces nutritional supplements in capsule, tablet, and powder forms. Founded in 1980, Natural Alternatives has operations in Southern California, Switzerland, and Japan.

Their complete partnership approach offers a wide range of innovative nutritional products and services to the client including: scientific research, clinical studies, proprietary ingredients, customer-specific nutritional product formulation, product testing and evaluation, marketing management and support, packaging and delivery system design, regulatory review and international product registration assistance.

On Feb. 14th Natural Alternatives
announced a second quarter net sales decrease of 8% to $19.9 mm from $21.5 mm for the comparable quarter last year. The reduction in net sales resulted mainly from a decrease in private label contract manufacturing sales. Also, an additional $3.8 mm of term debt was obtained on December 5th to fund part of the $5.6 mm of net cash used in the recent acquisition of Real Health Laboratories, Inc. (RHL).

According to company President, Randall Weaver"During the second quarter, we aggressively reduced costs in response to the net sales decline. We are pleased with our progress related to the integration of the RHL acquisition and do not expect a significant impact on profitability in the third quarter”.

Earlier this year the Company had announced receiving an initial purchase orders from two new contract manufacturing customers. These two new customers are expected to produce net sales in excess of $10 mm for the remainder of the ‘06 fiscal year.

Why does Weaver seem so positive on this news? Just 5 months before that the headlines read- Natural Alternatives
announces record breaking revenue for Fiscal 2005. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2005, their revenue increased 16% to $91.5 million from $78.5 million in the prior year.

On March 8th they closed the day at $8.33. Are they headed back up to their 52 week high on March 1st of $8.65? On Oct. 26, 05 they were at $5.03. A 52 week low.

With talk about health savings and flex spending accounts to support supplements are you ready to invest in making your financial account healthier?

Hi, my name is Kenny Williams and I have suffered from severe acne. In fact, I also had problems with hair loss and weight loss and I lost all self confidence at some point and all my friends too. Now, a few months later, after discovering the Health Reviews website, I feel much much better. After reading their success stories and recommendations, their Top Health Reviews really helped me. Do you realize how good can this be? NO more problems. Finally I can got back my smile. That is the reason I am so happy now!
