HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that net income for the third quarter and first nine months of 2011 both reached new highs, resulting in the company already having its most profitable year ever with a full three months remaining in the year. Earnings per share for the third quarter increased from $0.27 per share in 2010 to $0.30 per share this year, and earnings for the first nine months of the year were up 32% from $0.62 per share in 2010 to $0.82 per share this year.
Ken Globus, President of United, stated, "We are very pleased to report that earnings for the first 9 months of the year have already exceeded the earnings of any of the company's previous full fiscal years. Although year-to-date sales were slightly lower than last year due to supply problems with one of our pharmaceutical products earlier in the year, we were able to recover some of our lost profits through a financial settlement with the supplier. In addition, we didn't have the negative impact that we had last year when we terminated our defined benefit pension plan, which resulted in a $0.12 reduction in our earnings last year. Meanwhile, sales of our personal care and medical products remained strong and continued to grow for the first nine months of the year. We are confident that we can continue to grow these market segments as we work with potential new customers for our medical products, and expand our personal care products line with some of the new products currently under development."
United-Guardian is a manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients, personal and health care products, pharmaceuticals, and specialty industrial products.
