Saxena White P.A. Files Securities Fraud Class Action Against Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc.

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwired - Feb 5, 2014) - Saxena White P.A. has filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Utah against Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. ("Nu Skin" or the "Company") (NYSE: NUS) on behalf of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of the Company during the period from July 10, 2013 through January 16, 2014 (the "Class Period").

Through the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brand names, Nu Skin purports to manufacture and distribute skin care and nutrition products in fifty-three markets worldwide including North Asia, the Americas, Greater China, Southeast Asia/Pacific, and Europe.

The complaint brings forth claims for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that Nu Skin touted the strength of its operations in China; however, in reality the Company's success could not be sustained as local Chinese law and regulations were violated through its business practices. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company's operations in the People's Republic of China ("PRC") resulted in pyramid selling schemes in violation of PRC law; and (ii) as a result of the above, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
