Today Nutrisystem (NASDAQ: NTRI), a leader in weight loss with more than 40

company as Chief Financial Officer effective May 22, 2013.

Since 2009 Mr. Monahan has served as Chief Financial Officer of PetroChoice

passenger car lubricants. During his tenure, he was a key member of the
management team that achieved substantial growth and increased value for the

from 2006 to 2009 prior to joining PetroChoice. He is a seasoned financial
professional with significant experience in financial planning and analysis,
treasury, corporate accounting, strategy and business development, and
investor relations.

Dawn Zier, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nutrisystem, said, “We are
pleased that Mike has re-joined the company as Chief Financial Officer. He was
universally respected during his previous tenure with the company and is a
natural fit for us. He knows our business and saw firsthand the innovation and
direct consumer response discipline that propelled the company during our
growth phase. His perspective and financial expertise will be invaluable as we
work to execute our turnaround plan.”

Mike added, “This is a great time to join Nutrisystem, as Dawn and her team
are executing a cohesive turnaround plan that I believe will add significant
shareholder value. I look forward to meeting Nutrisystem’s investors and
analysts, and keeping them apprised of our progress as we work to restore
financial performance.”

Mr. Monahan started his career at Arthur Andersen LLP, working on both the
audit and consulting side of the business, later joining Accenture in the
finance and performance management practice. Following that, he worked at
Exelon Corporation leading a divisional financial planning and analysis team
prior to joining Nutrisystem in April 2006. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree
from Villanova University and a Master of Business Administration from The
University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
