Revenue for the quarter, meanwhile, fell to $534.0 million, from $617.9 million a year ago, hurt by the transfer of the Nutra manufacturing and China businesses to the newly formed joint ventures, negative same-store sales and the closure of company-owned stores under our store portfolio optimization strategy.
