United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) reported today that sales for the first half of 2022 increased over the same period last year, but that net earnings decreased due to higher costs and other market factors. Sales for the six-month period ended June 30th increased from $7,088,846 in 2021 to $7,518,535 this year, and net income decreased from $2,525,726 ($0.55 per share) to $1,544,789 ($0.34 per share). Second quarter sales decreased slightly from $3,657,978 to $3,626,177, with net income decreasing from $1,344,524 ($0.29 per share) to $633,324 ($0.14 per share).

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, “We were pleased that sales for the first half of 2022 increased by 6% compared with the first half of 2021, but our net income on those sales was significantly impacted by higher raw material and shipping costs, as well as by a significant decrease in the value of our marketable securities due to the continuing decline in the stock market. The price increases we implemented in April will partially offset some of the raw material and other cost increases we have experienced this year, and we anticipate that the value of our marketable securities will gradually increase as the stock market improves. We were happy to see that sales of our pharmaceutical products increased by 8% in the second quarter compared with the same quarter last year, and that sales of our non-pharmaceutical medical products increased by 55%, which was partially attributable to a significant increase in sales of one of our medical products to a customer in China. We will continue to work closely with our marketing partners, as well as our direct medical customers, to further increase sales and to maximize profits.”
