Obagi Medical Products Reports Sales And Earnings Growth For The Fourth Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2011

Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMPI), a leader in topical aesthetic and therapeutic skin health systems, today reported net income for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011 of $5.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, up significantly compared with $2.9 million, or $0.14 per diluted share a year earlier.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled $30.6 million, up from $30.3 million a year ago. By geographic segment, net sales for 2011 reflected 11% growth in international markets and a slight decrease in domestic sales due to the Company’s suspension of shipments of hydroquinone products into Texas in April 2011.

In the fourth quarter of 2011, gross profit was $24.2 million, or 79.2% of total net sales, versus $23.9 million, or 79.0% of total net sales, a year ago. Operating expenses of $16.0 million were down approximately 16% compared with $19.0 million a year ago. This decrease in expenses was due to special charges incurred in the fourth quarter of 2010 related to the Zein Obagi litigation, severance for the prior CEO and costs associated with a secondary offering.

The Company generated $7.8 million in cash flow from operations in the fourth quarter, compared to $5.4 million a year ago. Total cash on hand at December 31, 2011 was $35.0 million. On March 6, 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors expanded its stock buyback program from an existing availability of $10.0 million to a $30.0 million authorization.

  • Total net sales were $114.1 million, up from $112.8 million for 2010;
