United-Guardian Reports Increased Third Quarter Sales & Earnings

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) announced today the financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2023. Third quarter sales increased from $2,417,022 to $3,057,518, with net income increasing from $345,518 ($0.07 per share) to $626,756 ($0.14 per share). Sales for the nine-month period ended September 30th decreased from $9,935,557 in 2022 to $8,278,141 in 2023 due to lower sales in the first half of the year. Net income for the nine-month period decreased from $1,890,307 ($0.41 per share) in 2022 to $1,843,931 ($0.40 per share) in 2023.

Donna Vigilante, President of United-Guardian, stated, “We are pleased to announce that sales increased by 26% for the third quarter of 2023 compared with the same period in 2022. Sales increased in all our main product categories, with cosmetic ingredient sales up 42%, pharmaceutical sales up 3%, and medical lubricant sales up 73%. While overall sales for the first nine months of 2023 decreased slightly compared with the comparable period in 2022, our net income and earnings per share for the first nine months of 2023 were only slightly behind the same period in 2022, and third quarter earnings per share doubled over the same period in 2022. We are in the process of re-evaluating our current marketing strategy, and plan to implement changes in the first quarter of 2024. We anticipate that these changes will enable us to increase sales in all our product categories, especially sales of our cosmetic ingredients in the regions that are underperforming. We are hopeful that these efforts will result in increased sales moving forward.”

United-Guardian is a manufacturer of cosmetic ingredients, pharmaceuticals, and medical lubricants.
