Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SBH) (the “Company”) today announced strong financial results for fiscal 2012 third quarter. The Company will hold a conference call today at 10:00 a.m. (Central) to discuss these results and its business.

“We are pleased with our third quarter results with growth in sales and adjusted EBITDA of 6% and 17%, respectively,” stated Gary Winterhalter, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to realize consistent performance in the countries in which we operate despite an unpredictable global economy.
