Nathan Halsey was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. After graduating from Mary Carroll High School in 1994, he attended Texas A&M University where he earned a Bachelor of Business Arts in Finance in 1998.

After earning his degree, Nathan began his professional career with Ericsson, a subsidiary of global telecommunications provider Telefonakietbolaget LM. Nathan became part of Ericsson’s Executive Management Training Program during his time with the company, and he soon graduated into its Executive Leadership Program. Nathan eventually turned his experience and expertise into a management and consulting position with the company now known as Cap Gemini Ernst & Young.

Becoming an Entrepreneur

Nathan Halsey’s career in business management was impressive, but his real passion was to become an entrepreneur. He got his chance in 2003 when he founded a boutique investment company in Dallas, Texas. The firm oversaw the management of various real estate, energy and emerging business projects. Nathan narrowed his scope in 2009 to focus on health and wellness and start a skin care manufacturing company. This new business had a strong focus on research and development and sold products primarily in Southeast Asia.

In 2013, Nathan once again made waves when he launched Bellatorra Skin Care. Bellatorra products continue to utilize advanced technology and powerful all-natural ingredients to create a complete system of care for the skin. Nathan continues to serve as the CEO of Bellatorra Skin Care and oversees its day-to-day operations. More recently, Nathan has founded Bonamour Pacific, Inc. Much like Bellatorra, Bonamour focuses on creating all-natural skin care products to rejuvenate skin without exposing it to potentially harmful ingredients.

When he is not acting as the CEO of Bellatorra Skin Care and President of Bonamour, Nathan lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife Kristin and their three children, Jensen, Hudson and Preston. Together, Nathan and Kristin Halsey are founders of Beyond Me, a nonprofit that focuses on helping children in need as well as other nonprofit organizations around the world.

Nathan Halsey has accomplished much in his professional life, but he will perhaps be best known for his contribution to the world of skin care. The products created by Bellatorra and Bonamour are known around the globe, and they continue to revolutionize the world of cosmetics and skin care with new discoveries and developments.

(NYSE: TWTR) reported Q4 earnings on Thursday. While the company beat analyst expectations, it fell way short on new user activations. The social network had 288 million monthly active users in the quarter, compared to some analyst estimates for 290 million or more. That means Twitter added just four million users during the quarter, or small increase of 1.4% from the previous quarter, its slowest user growth rate to date.

twitter users q4

Twitter’s executives tried the blame game and pin the sluggish growth on an “BUG” in Apple’s iOS 8 update, which is said to have cost Twitter four million users during the quarter. CEO Dick Costolo said the company moved quickly to fix the issue, but it “wasn’t a one size fits all fix.”

It’s hard to value the loss of 4 million new users and it likely would not have made a huge impact on revenue. Still adding in the 4 million lost users due to the claimed “BUG” it would have brought new users for the quarter to 13 million still way short of the 16 million new users added in the previous quarters.

More important than user growth, however, is Twitter’s ability to make money on its users (logged-in or not, on its app or a third party’s). To that end, Twitter’s financial performance was outstanding.

Earnings were double expectations, coming in at $0.12 per share versus expectations of $0.06. Revenue came in at $479 million compared to expectations of $453.1 million.

Growing EBITDA

One of the most surprising metrics from Twitter’s fourth-quarter earnings report is the 12-percentage-point increase year over year in EBITDA margin. The company generated $141 million in adjusted EBITDA for the quarter, representing 30% of total revenue. This factor is largely responsible for the significant earnings beat the company posted.

While Twitter typically sees higher than average EBITDA margins in the fourth quarter due to higher ad demand, it expects the trend to continue into 2015. For the first quarter, Twitter guided for revenue of $440 million to $450 million (slightly below analysts’ expectations) and EBITDA of $89 million to $94 million.

Investors should pay close attention to EBITDA margin. The Growing EBITDA margin is a sign that Twitter is generating more revenue than it can invest in its business. Outperming in revenue compared to expectations is the likely reason why EBITDA margin expanded so much. It’s also the reason we’ll like see continued partnerships grow in the near future.
