DALLAS, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CVSL Inc. [NYSE MKT: CVSL] has been recognized on two recent direct selling industry rankings. Direct Selling News has named CVSL as #84 on the 2015 Global 100 list of the top revenue-generating direct selling companies in the world. It also has ranked CVSL as #45 on the 2015 North America 50, which lists the top direct selling companies in North America.
CVSL's 2015 global ranking is 15 spots higher than last year, when CVSL ranked #99.
The 2015 ranking does not include CVSL's most recent acquisition, Kleeneze, which joined CVSL after the rankings were calculated. Kleeneze made the Global 100 list on its own, coming in at #100.

We are one of the fastest growing direct-to-consumer companies in the world. We intend to continue our growth and climb even higher on the Global 100 in the years to come."
The 2015 Global 100 list is published in the June issue of Direct Selling News.
