United-Guardian Reports Record 9-Month Sales & Earnings

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that sales and earnings both reached record levels for the first nine months of the year. Sales for the period were $11,159,860, a new 9-month record and an increase of 8.5% over the same period last year. Earnings for the period were $0.62 per share, which was an increase of $0.02 (3.3%) over last year, which is significant because in the second quarter the company had taken a one-time charge to earnings of $0.12 per share in connection with the termination of its defined benefit pension plan. For the three-month period ended September 30, 2010, sales reached $3,848,393, an  increase of 13.4% over the same period last year and a new third-quarter sales record for the company. Earnings for the third quarter were $0.27 per share versus $0.22 per share in the third quarter of 2009, an increase of 22.7%.

Ken Globus, President of United, stated, "We are pleased to report another very strong quarter, which was primarily the result of a significant increase in sales of our personal care products line, which increased 17% for the first nine months of this year compared with the same period in 2009. We are working with our global marketing partners to continue to increase sales of these products, with particular emphasis on the growing consumer markets in emerging economies, such as China and Russia where our sales have grown significantly in recent years. We are also continuing to develop new products for both the personal care and medical markets."
