Youngevity International, Inc. (YGYI) Strategic Growth Initiative to Explore Up Listing and Investment Banking Opportunities

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Youngevity International, Inc. (OTCQX: YGYI) (www.YGYI.com), a global direct marketer of nutritional and lifestyle products and also a vertically-integrated producer of gourmet coffees for the commercial, retail and direct sales channels, today announced the Company's management team will commence the strategic growth agenda, which was first announced and outlined on the First Quarter Shareholder Conference Call.

David Briskie, President and CFO of Youngevity, stated, "As announced on our earnings call, we are ready to begin our corporate strategic growth initiative. Having issued guidance in the range of $175 to 190 Million for 2016, we believe we are at the perfect inflection point to take the Company to new heights. We will investigate an up listing on one of the senior exchanges. Our plan is ambitious; however, with strong product sales, over 1000 products available, organic growth and the stepped up activities of our distributors, we believe we are well positioned for the future. In addition, our coffee business continues to expand as we explore additional U.S. based retail opportunities."

Steve Wallach, CEO of Youngevity, said, "This is an exciting time for management and all our shareholders. As our plan evolves we will update our shareholders on the progress we are making to up list on the NYSE or NASDAQ."
