United-Guardian Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) today reported net income of $1,069,871 ($0.23 per share) on net sales of  $3,317,370 for the third quarter of 2019, compared with net income of $1,316,524 ($0.29 per share) on net sales of $3,344,374 for the third quarter of 2018. For the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019 the company reported net sales of $9,777,086 and net income of $3,371,375 ($0.73 per share), compared with net sales of $10,666,525 and net income of $3,769,048 ($0.82 per share) for the first nine months of 2018.Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, “While net sales for the third quarter of 2019 were almost identical to those of the third quarter of 2018, net income for the quarter was down primarily due to lower sales of our Lubrajel® line of water-based moisturizers and lubricants in China. We are hopeful that this situation will improve as the trade war with China gets resolved. In addition, we are working closely with our marketing partner in China to be more competitive with some of the lower-priced Asian products that compete with Lubrajel, and we are in the process of shifting our marketing effort in Korea to a different marketing partner, with the hope that we will be able to reverse the sales decline that we have experienced there in the past few years. On a positive note we are pleased that sales of our Renacidin® Irrigation Solution, our most important pharmaceutical product, were up 15% from last year’s third quarter, which we believe was the result of our internet marketing efforts. We plan to continue those efforts to increase Renacidin sales, and with strong sales in October we are optimistic that we will have another very profitable year.”United-Guardian is a manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients, personal and health care products, pharmaceuticals, and specialty industrial products.
