United-Guardian Reports Record Six-Month Sales

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Aug. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that sales for the first six months of 2010 exceeded $7.3 million, the highest six-month sales period in the Company's history and a 6% increase over the first six months of 2009. The Company also posted its highest second quarter revenue figure ever at $3.7 million, an increase of 25% over the second quarter of last year. A one-time pension termination expense caused earnings to be slightly lower than last year, with earnings per share of $0.35 for the first six months of 2010 compared with $0.39 for the comparable period last year.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, "In July the Company finally terminated its burdensome defined benefit pension plan, which resulted in a one-time charge to earnings of $0.12 per share for the second quarter. Had it not been for this one-time expense, earnings for the quarter would have been $0.25 per share, which would have represented an increase of over 60% compared with last year's second quarter, and earnings for the six-month period would have been $0.46 per share, which would have been an 18% increase over last year. Now that the plan has been terminated and this one-time expense is behind us, the costs and administrative burdens associated with maintaining the defined benefit pension plan will soon be eliminated. With very strong sales in July and an excellent start to August, we are confident that we will continue to have a very profitable year."

United-Guardian is a manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients, personal and health care products, pharmaceuticals, and specialty industrial products.
