Amway Corporation Key Developments

Amway Announces Launch of XS™ Sports Nutrition Line

Amway announced the launch of the XS™ Sports Nutrition line, marking the company's expansion in the sports and performance nutrition category and presenting an opportunity for the next generation of Amway Independent Business Owners (IBOs). The XS™ Sports Nutrition line is an extension of the XS™ brand, a line of healthier energy drinks, which Amway acquired in 2015. This further infuses Amway's product portfolio with the energy, authenticity and quality customers expect. The XS™ Sports Nutrition line features a variety of products, including protein powder and shakes, pre- and post-workout supplements, energy bars, and sports drinks that help active consumers to hydrate, energize, and recharge. The products help fuel an active and adventurous lifestyle by quenching thirst, boosting and sustaining energy, hastening recovery and building of lean muscle mass after exercise. The Sports Nutrition market has grown to a nearly $19 billion category in the United States, with rapid expansion driven by greater consumer awareness, education and availability of products to a more mainstream consumer base. Sports nutrition products are no longer just for gym rats or extreme athletes.  In fact, about half of US adults consume sports nutrition products present and, of that group, 50% are under 35. In 2015, Amway strategically acquired the XS™ brand to expand its geographic reach and improve their ability to reach the next generation of business entrepreneurs. Amway has been the exclusive distributor of XS™ products since 2003, growing the brand to $150 million in annual sales and expanding into 38 global markets. XS co-founder David Vanderveen, who was an Amway Independent Business Owner more than 20 years ago, credits his entrepreneurial experience with Amway with giving him the confidence and know-how to create his own brand. Since the acquisition, Vanderveen is now a vice president and general manager of the XS™ brand with Amway.
