United-Guardian Reports Record Earnings

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., May 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that earnings for the first quarter of 2013 set a new company record of $1,564,649 ($0.34 per share), a 27% increase over the first quarter of 2012. Sales for the quarter increased to $3,952,161, a 1.6% increase over last year's first quarter and just short of the company's previous record quarterly sales of just over $4 million.

"We are very pleased with our first quarter results, especially considering that we were able to attain this record earnings level without any sales of our largest pharmaceutical product, Renacidin ® Irrigation," stated Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian. "That product has been unavailable since August 2012 due to manufacturing problems experienced by our supplier. We hope to have that situation remedied and the product back on the market this year, which should give our pharmaceutical sales a significant boost. We are also very pleased that sales of our personal care products increased 14% over last year's first quarter, and sales of our medical and industrial products were both up as well. We are optimistic that sales of our new "Lubrajel Natural" line of natural water-based moisturizers will start to bring in additional revenue by the end of this year. We also will be devoting some of our R&D efforts towards developing new lower-cost forms of Lubrajel that will enable us to expand our sales into geographic markets not currently suitable for our higher-end Lubrajel products."

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