The company expects adjusted earnings of $1 to $1.20 a share for the third quarter, and $4.55 to $4.95 a share for the year, because of “lower than expected levels of activity amongst its independent distributors.”

Back in August, Herbalife had forecast third-quarter earnings of $1.05 to $1.25 a share, and full-year earnings of $4.70 to $5.10 a share. Based on that, analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast $1.17 a share for the third quarter and $4.99 a share for the year.

“We are on track for another record sales year with a sustained growth trajectory and significant cash generation, positioning us to continue to benefit from the fundamental tailwinds driving the nutrition industry globally and the strong demand for our science-based products, as consumers continue to appreciate the value of good nutrition,” said John Agwunobi, Herbalife chief executive, in a statement.

“Yet, uncertainty in global markets, fueled by the extended period of the pandemic, has brought about unique challenges in predicting behavior in the channel,” he said.
