Mannatech, Incorporated  (NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of
naturally-sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology^® solutions,
hosted more than 4,500 Independent Associates and guests at its Asia MannaFest

first time the company hosted an Asia-specific convention. The celebration far
exceeded previous attendance at similar events in the past. Attendees from
Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Australia were represented at the convention.

Asia MannaFest was a celebration of the story of Mannatech and the Independent
Associates who have experienced significant improvements in their lives due to
the benefits of the Mannatech products and its leverage-based income model.
Featured presentations focused on Mannatech’s core nutritional innovations in
the areas of glyconutrients and Real Food Technology solutions, as well as the
revolutionary social entrepreneurial vision the company was built on, and its
Mission 5 Million message. Many Associates who achieved leadership ranks from
all over the region were also recognized from stage for their achievements
over the past year.

Guests also experienced a highly entertaining event, highlighted by an
appearance and performance by Korean pop star In-Soni, along with a
performance of traditional Korean drums. Several lucky Mannatech Associates
also won a drawing for a luxury bag of Louis Vuitton products. Korean pop star
Bobby Kim surprised more than 130 top Presidential Directors at the
Presidential Dinner held at the prestigious Aston House – Sheraton Walker
Hill.

“The growth and excitement we’re seeing in our Asian markets are truly
breathtaking,” said Mannatech CEO and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Robert
Sinnott. “I was able to experience this firsthand at Asia MannaFest. You can
see it in everyone’s eyes in the audience – the hope and passion that are
driving all of this success. Momentum is a critical component in our industry.
Our Asian markets are at the forefront of a global momentum shift that
Mannatech has been experiencing over the past 18 months. My deepest
appreciation and respect go out to our General Manager of South Korea and
Taiwan, Patrick Park, for his crucial role in making it all come together.”

“A year ago, when the Board of Directors granted approval to host the Asia
MannaFest in Korea, I personally took on this challenge as an opportunity to
build up confidence and momentum within the Asian market,” shared General
Manager of South Korea and Taiwan, Patrick Park.“As a result, we have far
exceeded our initial target and achieved a new record.Mannatech Korea will be
celebrating its 10^th year anniversary in 2014 and we fully expect to continue
our growth over the next year as we lead up to that big moment.”
