World Leader in Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ Makes Coveted List Four Straight Years


Chandler, AZ (August 24, 2010) - Recognizing the continuing rapid growth of Isagenix® for a fourth consecutive year, Inc. magazine today ranked the World Leader in Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ No. 2,653 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.


“We are honored to be recognized for the fourth year in a row as one of the Inc. 5,000 fastest growing private companies,” said Isagenix President and CEO Jim Coover. “This is a testimony to our life-changing nutritional systems and products and our partnership with our independent Isagenix Associates.”

Isagenix was also ranked No. 36 among the Top Companies in the Phoenix metro area.

Established in 2002, the Chandler-based health-and-wellness company achieved more than $1 billion in cumulative sales in early 2010 with its international sales force of more than 200,000 home-based business Associates in the United States and multiple international markets including Canada, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and now Mexico. Since its inception, Isagenix has created nearly 50 millionaires, hundreds of six-figure earners and led thousands of others to build residual income from distributing its products.

Combining cleansing with a low-calorie meal regimen and infusion of essential nutrients for a total health and wellness approach, the systems focus on Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing.

Methodology

The 2010 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2006 to 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2009. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. The top 10 percent of companies on the list constitute the Inc. 500, now in its 29th year.
