HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., March 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) reported today that sales and earnings for FY-2019 were up slightly from 2018, with sales increasing from $13,445,565 to $13,599,084, and net income increasing from $4,352,331 ($0.95 per share) to $4,761,711 ($1.04 per share), an increase in earnings of 9.4%.
“Although we were one of many companies that were negatively impacted by the trade war between the U.S. and China in 2019, our sales into China were still considerable, and we expect China to remain an important market for us, especially as the impact of the coronavirus diminishes,” said Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian. “Our sales in China, as well as in Korea, were also impacted by increased competition from lower-priced Asian competitors, but we are optimistic that our appointment of a new marketing partner in Korea will enable us to recover some of the business we lost there.”“Offsetting the lower sales of our cosmetic ingredients was a 33% increase in sales of our medical lubricants, which have become an increasingly important revenue source for us,” continued Mr. Globus. “We also experienced a 19% increase in sales of Renacidin® Irrigation, our most important pharmaceutical product, the sales of which have been increasing since we began our internet marketing campaign. We are continuing to work closely with all our marketing partners to develop new and innovative ingredients for the cosmetic market, especially “natural” ingredients, and plan to have several new products in the hands of our marketing partners this year. We are hopeful that we will be able to increase the sales of not only our cosmetic ingredients, but our medical and pharmaceutical products as well, and that despite the global economic impact of the coronavirus, 2020 can be another profitable year for us.”United-Guardian is a manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients, personal and health care products, pharmaceuticals, and specialty industrial products. Contact:
