United-Guardian Reports Record Earnings

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc., (Nasdaq:UG) today reported record earnings of $4.8 million and earnings per share of $1.05 for FY-2012, an increase of $0.02 per share over the 2011 earnings. The company was able to achieve record earnings despite a production curtailment by the supplier of one of its pharmaceutical products, which caused a significant drop in the company's shipments of that product for the second half of the year.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, "Although our overall sales were down slightly for the year as a result of our inability to bring in new Renacidin ® Irrigation inventory, sales of our personal care products, in particular our Lubrajel ® line of moisturizing and lubricating gels, increased enough to partially offset those lost sales. The impact on earnings was minimized as a result of a settlement agreement we reached with our Renacidin supplier, which made up for most of the profit we lost on that product during the year. We are hopeful that we will receive new Renacidin inventory in the third quarter of this year, and are working with a new supplier to avoid any future disruptions. We are also continuing to expand our personal care product lines with our new 'Lubrajel Natural' line of products. I am confident that our continuing efforts to bring new and unique personal care products to the global market, along with the strong marketing efforts of our global marketing partners and the expected resumption of Renacidin sales, will result in another strong year in 2013."

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