Arbonne International, LLC a MLM company known for its skin care products that is based out of Irvine California has been the topic of discussion as of late. Ever since the holding company Natural Products Group, LLC recently entering into a chapter 11 bankruptcy filing to remove an excess amount of outstanding debt.
The current rumors are claiming Arbonne will be shut down, this isn’t true since this is a chapter 11 filing to restructure the company. Natural Products Group, llc announced that the chapter 11 bankruptcy filing was successful with the plan accepted on Jan 27, 2010. With the company stating that more than 80% of the outstanding debt is expected to be reduced during the Arbonne reorganization, and turned into equity for the company. Basically the lenders are swapping the debt owed to gain shares of ownership in the company.
With the Arbonne Restructuring underway what happens with the current Independent Consultants?
Well, looks like business as usual which is a good thing following a huge scare as bankruptcy on your company. But in no way will this Arbonne Bankruptcy be out of the news anytime soon. As we know the MLM industry is constantly scrutinized as to how “legit” and “secure” any of the businesses are since many MLM companies have opened and closed their doors over the years, leaving empty pockets and broken dreams.
Arbonne Consultants and anyone looking to join the Arbonne Opportunity keep in mind how the bankruptcy filing is viewed by others. Now this in no way means you shouldn’t stay involved or get involved in the Arbonne opportunity. But remember the name is now tarnished and you now need to clean things up and explain what has taken place to people who may not be educated in bankruptcy. There will be hurdles for Arbonne consultants like sponsoring people into the business, but stay positive because its a number’s game.
