COPPELL, Texas -- April 15, 2013

Mannatech, Incorporated  (NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of
nutritional supplements based on Real Food Technology^® solutions, announced
today the official opening of its Hong Kong operation. The opening brings
Mannatech’s total global presence to 23 countries.

The Hong Kong launch signifies an ever-growing commitment by Mannatech to its
strategic objective of prudent global growth, as well as its ongoing support
of its current Asian markets. According to the World Federation of Direct
Selling Associations, retail sales in Hong Kong via the direct selling model
grew from $307 million (2010) to $406 million (2011) in U.S. currency, with
more than 155,000 identified independent distributors in the country. In
December 2012, Mannatech initiated order shipments into Hong Kong, serving as
the company’s first step toward the current launch.

“We are extremely excited about the long-term possibilities of Mannatech Hong
Kong,” explains Dr. Robert Sinnott, Mannatech’s CEO and Chief Science Officer.
“Expanding our reach into Hong Kong is an important milestone in Mannatech’s
journey. It further opens up the horizons to nourish the world with
Mannatech’s Real Food Technology supplementation, while rewarding and
empowering those who help us do it through our global seamless compensation
plan. It’s equally important for our current base of Mannatech Associates, as
well as to all the new Associates we’ll meet in the coming months and years in
Hong Kong.”

“Strategically, the opening of Hong Kong is a significant step for Mannatech,”
explains Roy Truett, President of International and Chief Operating Officer
for Mannatech. “We continue to aggressively explore new opportunities
globally, while responsibly executing the launch process to match each
market’s demand. Given our strength in both our current Asian markets as well
as our growing North American Chinese base of Associates, along with the
emergence of this market within our industry, Hong Kong is a perfect fit for
Mannatech.”

Promotional efforts for the Hong Kong opening began several months ago.
Pre-launch efforts included focused communication and training with current
Mannatech Associates, especially in the existing Asian markets. Multiple media
outlets, including print, broadcast media and online channels, will be
leveraged within Hong Kong for the remainder of 2013 to further promote
Mannatech in this new market.
