Press Release Author: Brett Hudson

Industry: Healthcare

Press Release Summary: Ever since the days in which ViSalus was just an idea, it has
been our mission to make an impact on the life, health, & prosperity of those
willing to welcome those values into their lives. From day one, the Founders have
made it clear that ViSalus was not just going to be just another company. Their goal
has long been to become a premiere company in the direct sales industry.

Press Release Body: Over the last 3 years, the Founders and Management Team have
continued to put in place the necessary foundation help ViSalus move toward its
Billion Dollar Vision.

We have always said that our goal was to build ViSalus into a Billion Dollar
Company, said Co Founder and CSO Nick Sarnicola. We have built a management team
that can lead at that level and felt that by aligning with an investment partner
like Blyth, we hope to achieve our goal even sooner. SVP of Marketing & Branding,
Audrey Sommerfeld added, Having been part of a large, publicly traded company
before, I am excited that we have partners like Blyth who really understand our
channel, and can help provide resources for expansion and rapid globalization of our
health and wellness products.

In exchange for ownership in ViSalus, Blyth will help ViSalus speed up our ability
to scale and get ready for large domestic and global expansion. In this agreement,
Blyth also has the option to acquire more to complete ownership in ViSalus over a
period of time if certain conditions are met by the company through 2012. It has
been agreed that all ViSalus Founders, Management, and employees will retain their
roles and continue to successfully lead ViSalus toward its goals.

CEO Ryan Blair added, When we first started dialog with Blyth the goal was for them
acquire a piece of the company in exchange for capital and resources to help fuel
our global expansion initiative. The fact that Blyth has shown an even greater
interest in our company is a true compliment and in my opinion the absolute best
thing that could happen for the entire ViSalus community. As a perpetual student of
business, I know what it means for a company of our size to be singled out by a
proven leader like Blyth. We look forward to standing among their top-tier brands.

Co-Founder and CMO Blake Mallen commented, It feels great to know that a cause that
we continue to put our lives into, one that has already impacted so many people, is
now being recognized at this level. Creating value for our employees and
shareholders, as well as for our Customers and Distributors, has always been our
number one priority. This alliance increases that value tremendously. Mallen added,
Plus, combining Blyths stability, experience, and global infrastructure with the
opportunity and excitement of our 3 year-old company will surely appeal to many
looking to align with a direct selling company. It definitely gives ViSalus a
competitive edge in the market.

We plan on maximizing this new relationship with an aggressive global expansion
initiative and even further expanding our product R&D focus. All of this combined
with our new web technology we are launching in Las Vegas at our Vitality Convention
in October will make for quite an opportunity for everyone who is a part of the
ViSalus community.

Ladies and gentlemen, champions of the ViSalus cause, we are proud today to inform
you that ViSalus has made another quantum leap toward bringing our mission to the

ViSalus has united with established direct sales leader Blyth, Inc., and is excited
and proud to now be able to say we are a part of the Blyth family of companies and
successful direct selling brands.
