United-Guardian Reports Record Financial Results

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that revenue and earnings per share both reached record levels in 2010, with sales increasing 3.4% from $13,276,984 to $13,723,074, and earnings per share increasing from $0.78 to $0.80. Income from operations was down slightly due to a one-time pension termination expense.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, "We are very pleased with our financial results for 2010, with both revenue and earnings per share reaching new highs. Had it not been for a one-time pension termination expense of approximately $0.12 per share that we incurred in the second quarter of the year, our earnings per share would have been up by about 18% over last year. The termination of that plan will eliminate a financial burden that we have been under for many years. We were also pleased that International Specialty Products, our largest marketing partner, reported a 14% increase in its sales of our personal care products last year. We are optimistic that we will be able to continue to increase sales as our marketing partners continue their efforts to market our personal care products and we continue to see demand for our medical lubricants, which we believe will be a growth area for us in the coming years."

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