“We are very satisfied with how the business developed in 2020 and look back on by far the most successful year in the company’s 35-year history. By posting record sales, we increased our earnings disproportionately compared to 2019. Furthermore, we succeeded in expanding our digital social selling platform and further improving our structures. It is also important to consistently continue the innovation process in order to take current market trends into account and ensure a sustainably filled product pipeline. We are constantly expanding our portfolio with new health and beauty products, such as Aloe Vera Immune Plus or LR 5in1 Beauty Elixir most recently,” commented Dr Andreas Laabs, CFO and COO of LR Global Holding GmbH.

As a modern social selling partner, LR distributes over 300 products in the areas of health and beauty (nutritional supplements and cosmetics) via its partner community with currently more than 330,000 active sales partners and customers. The LR Group is active in 28 countries worldwide.

Positive outlook for financial year 2021

The management of the LR Group continues to expect a positive business development with stable growth for the current financial year 2021. The forecast is based on the assumption that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the extent of which still cannot be fully assessed, will not have any significant impact on the LR Group’s business.

“We have gotten off to a good start in financial year 2021 and will consistently continue our strategic initiatives to develop LR into the leading digital social selling platform. As LR, we are increasingly reaching out to young target audiences who can build an attractive supplementary income or livelihood. We also cater to the increasing health awareness in the population in an ideal way with our product range. Against the backdrop of the pandemic and the continuing challenging market environment, we replenished our stocks accordingly at an early stage in order to ensure the ability to supply our products with a view to the projected growth in sales. We are also placing a stronger focus on the Asian region as part of our international expansion. We launched our business in South Korea in March and are now present on the market there with a select range of health and beauty products,” Laabs adds.

The complete 2020 Annual Report is available online as of today on the company’s website at https://www.lrworld.com/investorrelations.
