Young Innovations, Inc. (YDNT) Announces Record Sales and EPS for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2011


4/21/2011 7:53:12 AM

ST. LOUIS, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Young Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ: YDNT) today announced record sales and earnings per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

Sales for the first quarter of 2011 were $26.0 million, an increase 5.0% from the $24.8 million reported in the first quarter of 2010. Income from operations increased 6.6% to $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2011 from $5.4 million in the first quarter of 2010. Net income increased 12.4% to $4.0 million compared with $3.6 million in the first quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings per share increased 13.6% in the first quarter of 2011 to $0.50 from $0.44 in the prior year quarter.

We are once again pleased with the Company's overall sales performance in the quarter. Strong growth of our diagnostic product line and solid gains for our consumables products drove a healthy overall increase for the first quarter.

We remained focused on driving internal growth through new product development, enhancing customer relationships, and increasing operating efficiencies. We added several products to expand our preventive and practice enhancement lines. In addition, we introduced a new digital panoramic x-ray unit to our line of diagnostic products. We expanded a number of targeted marketing programs to increase sales to new and existing customers. Additionally, we continued to redesign a number of processes in order to improve our operating efficiency.

The Company recognized a gain in the quarter with respect to its HealthEdge private equity investment. The gain of approximately $440,000 was the result of the sale of a portfolio company of HealthEdge and was recorded as "other income." Our corporate tax rate increased to 34.7% in the first quarter of 2011 from 34.0% in 2010 when the tax rate benefited from a one-time adjustment as well as a lower Illinois state corporate tax rate. Our balance sheet continued to strengthen as long-term debt was reduced to $3.7 million at the end of the quarter.

We are encouraged by our results for the first quarter. As the organization continues to develop and strengthen, we remain confident in our ability to take advantage of long-term strategic growth opportunities.
