Young Innovations, Inc. Announces Record EPS for the Year
Date:2/3/2010

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Young Innovations, Inc. (Nasdaq: YDNT) today announced record earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2009.

Sales for the fourth quarter of 2009 were $24.5 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 2.5%, from the $23.9 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2008.  Income from operations increased 13.9% from $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2008 to $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2009.  Net income increased 13.5% to $3.5 million, compared with $3.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.  Diluted earnings per share increased 10.0% in the fourth quarter of 2009 to $0.44 from $0.40 in the prior year quarter.  Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.04 and $0.03 for the quarters ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Sales for the year ended December 31, 2009 were $97.7 million, down 1.4% from $99.1 million in the prior year.  Income from operations increased 9.0% from $19.8 million in 2008 to $21.5 million in 2009.  Net income for fiscal year 2009 was $13.5 million, up 10.7% from $12.2 million in the prior year.  Diluted earnings per share were $1.69 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009, an increase of 11.9% from $1.51 in 2008.  Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.14 and $0.11 for 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Healthy demand for our consumable products, which include preventive, infection control, endodontic, micro-applicator and home care product lines, helped increase sales in the fourth quarter of 2009. Sales of our diagnostic product line declined from the prior year quarter, though at a slower rate than the past few quarters. Gross and operating margins benefited in the fourth quarter from a combination of price increases, favorable product mix, and improved operating efficiencies. Sales for the quarter received a minimal foreign exchange benefit, while for the year, a stronger U.S. dollar negatively impacted sales by approximately $557,000.

During the fourth quarter, we added sales staff at a majority of our product lines in an effort to expand and enhance customer relationships. Work to increase operating efficiencies included improving manufacturing productivity, implementation of software enhancements and ongoing consolidation work. Continued focus on new product development led to additions to our preventive product line as well as additional infection control products to be launched in the first quarter of 2010.

Overall, we are pleased with our ability to achieve growth in earnings throughout the year. We believe our investments to strengthen the company over the last few years have us well-positioned to take advantage of future growth opportunities.
