ST. LOUIS, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Young Innovations, Inc. (Nasdaq: YDNT) today announced results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2007.
Sales for the third quarter were $24.7 million, increasing 3.5% over the $23.8 million reported for the third quarter of 2006. Income from operations decreased 16.8% to $5.2 million from $6.2 million in the prior year. Net income of $3.1 million decreased 22.1% from $3.9 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2007 were $0.35, a decrease of 18.6% over the $0.43 reported in the prior year quarter. For the quarter ended September 30, 2007, diluted shares outstanding were 8,773,000 a decrease of 410,000 shares over the prior year, principally reflecting the pro rata impact of the 1 million share repurchase completed on August 15, 2007. Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.02 and $0.01 for the quarters ended September 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, sales were $72.4 million, increasing 9.7% from the prior year period. Income from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 decreased 9.4% to $15.7 million from $17.3 million in the prior year. Net income was $9.4 million, decreasing 15.5% from $11.1 million in the year earlier nine-month period. Diluted earnings per share were $1.03 for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, a decrease of 14.9% from $1.21 in the same period of 2006. For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, diluted shares outstanding were 9,082,000 a decrease of 96,000 shares over the prior year, principally reflecting the pro rata impact of the 1 million share repurchase completed on August 15, 2007. Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.05 and $0.02 for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively.
The results for the quarter were affected by the acquisition of the assets of Microbrush, Inc. and Microbrush International, Ltd. (collectively "Microbrush"), completed on July 31, 2006, and August 18, 2006, respectively. Microbrush contributed approximately $3.6 million in sales in the third quarter of 2007, as compared to $2.0 million in the third quarter of 2006. For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, Microbrush contributed $11.0 million in sales, as compared to $2.0 million in the prior year period.
The sales growth in the quarter reflected the incremental sales from Microbrush offset by lower sales of certain products to distributors. While end-user demand for these products appears stable, volatile distributor purchase patterns continue to impact quarterly sales.
As productivity in our Earth City facility has increased faster than market demand, we reduced production in the quarter to bring inventory levels more in line with demand. In addition, we maintained staffing levels and incurred costs related to preparing for future consolidations. We believe this activity impacted our diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.04 in the quarter.
Commenting on the quarter, Alfred E. Brennan, Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the quarter, we managed through a difficult operating environment as we continued to integrate the acquisition of Microbrush, completed the repurchase of 1 million shares from our Chairman, adjusted production and inventory levels at our Earth City facility and prepared for future facilities consolidations. We believe we have made good progress in expanding our sales and marketing capacity and executing on the consolidation plans outlined earlier in the year."
On October 22, 2007, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.04 per share, payable on December 14, 2007 to shareholders of record on November 15, 2007.
