United-Guardian Reports Record Sales and Earnings

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Aug. 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (Nasdaq:UG) reported today that, for the first time in the company's history, quarterly sales exceeded $4 million, increasing by $325,747 (8.7%) over last year's second quarter, with earnings matching the previous quarterly record high of $0.27 per share. For the first six months of the year net income was up 39% over the first six months of 2010 on sales of $7.7 million.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, "We are very pleased to report that earnings for the first half of 2011 reached a new high of $0.52 per share. This was primarily the result of a significant increase this year in demand for our personal care products. We also resumed sales of our most important pharmaceutical product, RENACIDIN IRRIGATION, which had been temporarily suspended for several months due to supply problems. Those problems have now been resolved, and the resumption of these sales, along with the strong demand for our personal care products, has resulted in our reaching quarterly sales of over $4 million for the first time ever. With some exciting new products under development we expect our sales to continue to increase, and we remain optimistic that this will be our best year ever, despite the continuing worldwide economic problems."

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