Quarterly sales volumes moved up 9%. HLF raised its profit outlook for the full-year from prior guidance of between $5.85 and $6.05 per share, to between $6.10 and $6.30 per share.
HLF also said it would halt quarterly dividend payments in order to repurchase more HLF shares. The dividend suspension was hailed by activist investor Carl Icahn, who took to Twitter (TWTR) to call the decision a “great move.” Icahn holds a significant stake in Herbalife.
In March, the Federal Trade Commission said it had launched an investigation into Herbalife. The company has been accused of being a pyramid scheme by at least one prominent investor.
On Monday, HLF stock closed at $58.85 per share.
