-- Fourth quarter adjusted EPS increased 42.0 percent to $0.98 compared to the prior year, driven by 15.8 percent local currency sales growth. -- FY'09 cash from operations increased 4.4 percent to $285.1 million compared to prior year. -- Repurchased 1.0 million shares during the fourth quarter and 2.0 million shares in fiscal 2009.
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) today reported fourth quarter net sales increased 23.0 percent to $630.9 million and local currency net sales increased 15.8 percent compared to the same period in 2008. For the quarter ended December 31, 2009, the company reported net income of $55.7 million, or $0.88 per diluted share compared to $33.7 million or $0.53 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2008, reflecting local currency sales growth, operating margin expansion, a lower effective tax rate and accretion from the share repurchase program.
Excluding the Venezuela currency impact and other adjusting items in the fourth quarter 2009 and 2008 1, fourth quarter adjusted net income was $61.7 million, or $0.98 in adjusted diluted earnings per share, reflecting an increase of 42.3 percent and 42.0 percent, respectively, compared to the same period in 2008.
For the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, the company reported net sales of $2.3 billion, a 1.5 percent decline primarily due to the negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations whereas in local currency net sales for fiscal 2009 increased 5.1 percent compared to fiscal 2008. For the year ended December 31, 2009, the company reported net income of $203.3 million, or $3.22 per diluted share, compared to $221.2 million, or $3.36 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2008. Excluding the impact from adjusting items in both periods 1, adjusted net income was $207.1 million, or $3.28 in adjusted diluted earnings per share, a decrease of 10.8 percent and 7.1 percent respectively, compared to 2008 primarily due to the negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations and a higher effective tax rate in 2008.
For the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, the company generated cash flow from operations of $285.1 million, an increase of 4.4 percent compared to 2008, paid dividends of $48.7 million, invested $60.1 million in capital expenditures, repurchased $74.6 million in common stock and paid approximately $10.0 million for certain acquired manufacturing assets. The company's net debt balance at the end of the fourth quarter was $99.5 million, reflecting an improvement of $101.3 million from December 2008.
"We are proud that despite the difficult economic climate of 2009, we were able to achieve record local-currency sales results, and we are excited about our positive momentum going into 2010. Our distributors' adoption of the daily-consumption method of doing business creates deeper reach into existing markets and is fueling the growth of the company," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Johnson. "The Herbalife opportunity addresses two of the largest global challenges facing society today; health and a source of income. We will continue to provide the best nutrition products with proven ingredients, and to provide the tools our Distributors need to build their businesses."
During the fourth quarter the company hosted three Extravaganzas,in Nanjing, China, Johannesburg, South Africa and Atlanta, Georgia which collectively were attended by more than 25,000 participants.
For the year ended December 31, 2009, our top ten products accounted for 73.1 percent of the company's total volume points, a 3.5 percent increase compared to 2008. The company's top three products, those used most within nutrition clubs, Formula 1, Herbal Tea concentrate and Aloe concentrate, accounted for 50.8 percent of volume points, compared to 49.4 percent in the prior year. For the year ended December 31, 2009, volume points of those three products collectively increased 5.2 percent compared to 2008.
During the quarter the company opened two new markets, Vietnam and Paraguay.
2009 Annual Sales Leader Requalification
By January of each year, sales leaders are required to re-qualify. In February of each year, we remove from the rank of sales leaders those individuals who did not satisfy the sales leader qualification requirements during the preceding 12 months. For the latest 12-month requalification period ending January 2010, approximately 43.0 percent of the eligible sales leaders requalified, reflecting an improvement from 40.3 percent in 2008.

Based on current business trends, the company's first quarter 2010 and fiscal 2010 guidance is provided below.
Effective January 1, 2010, Venezuela has been designated as a highly inflationary economy. Our 2010 guidance excludes the impact of a one-time charge related to highly inflationary accounting for Venezuela. However, included in our 2010 guidance is the assumption of applying the parallel market exchange rate and highly inflationary accounting for Venezuela during 2010. While, as previously disclosed, the move to highly inflationary accounting causes no material change to our EPS guidance, this change will negatively impact net sales guidance. 3, 4
First Quarter - The company's first quarter 2010 diluted earnings per share guidance range is $0.77 to $0.80 5 on volume point growth of 3.0 percent to 4.0 percent and net sales growth of 12.5 percent to 13.5 percent compared to the same period in 2009 3, respectively, and an effective tax rate range of 30.0 percent to 31.0 percent. The company's first quarter 2010 capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $15 million to $20 million.
