("Nu Skin" or the "Company") (NYSE:NUS) common stock during the period between October 25, 2011 and January 15, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff.

The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company units during the Class Period.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. According to the Complaint, defendants failed to disclose during the Class Period the Company's fraudulent sales practices and non-compliance with China's laws and regulations and their potential impact on the Company. Particularly, in January 2014, two Chinese agencies announced that they were probing the Company's marketing and business practices in China, and it was suspected the Company was operating an illegal pyramid scheme. Following this news, the value of Nu Skin shares declined significantly.
If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
