United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) reported today that net income for the third quarter of 2021 increased by 42% over the same quarter in 2020, increasing from $717,532 ($0.16 per share) in 2020 to $1,016,506 ($0.22 per share) in this year’s third quarter. Net sales for the quarter increased by 36% from $2,336,360 in 2020 to $3,179,746 this year. For the first nine months 2021, net income increased from $2,694,450 ($0.59 per share) in 2020 to $3,542,232 ($0.77 per share) this year, an increase of 31%, while net sales increased from $8,613,918 in 2020 to $10,268,592 in 2021, an increase of 19%.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, “As we had anticipated, sales of our cosmetic ingredients in this year’s third quarter increased substantially over the third quarter of 2020, which was when the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic was most severe. Sales of our cosmetic ingredients in this year’s third quarter increased by 187% over the comparable quarter last year, with sales to our marketing partner in Asia, Ashland Specialty Ingredients, increasing by over 300%, and sales to our four other marketing partners in Europe all increasing compared with last year. While we expect to continue to be impacted to some extent by the global pandemic, we anticipate that the impact will relate primarily to supply chain and shipping issues, increasing some lead times and raw material costs. As the impact of the global pandemic continues to lessen, and as we continue to introduce new products into both the cosmetic and medical markets, we are hopeful that our sales will continue to increase into 2022. We are confident that despite the lingering effects of the pandemic, we will end the year with financial results that will be significantly better than in 2020.”

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