Unilens Vision Reports Record First Quarter Earnings and Royalty Income

LARGO, Fla., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Unilens Vision Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UVICF; TSX Venture Exchange: UVI), which develops, licenses, manufactures, distributes and markets specialty contact lenses, today reported its operating results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2009 (FY2010).

Net sales excluding royalty income, were $1,683,673 in the FY2010 first quarter, 4.4% less then $1,761,526 reported in the previous year first quarter (FY2009). The decrease in sales was primarily a result of less low vision product line sales to our exclusive low vision stocking distributor, offset by a 7.3% increase in sales of our C-Vue brand disposable lenses sold exclusively to licensed eye care practitioners.

Royalty income for the FY2010 first quarter increased 7.6% to a record first quarter of $767,676 compared with $713,397 in the prior-year quarter. Sales of licensed products by our licensee Bausch & Lomb continue to increase, resulting in continued royalty income growth.

FY2010 first quarter income before taxes increased 2.9% to a record first quarter $790,730 compared with $768,259 in the prior-year quarter. After recording net income tax expense of $296,642, Unilens reported net income of $494,088, an increase of 5.9% compared to the previous year quarter , or $0.11 per diluted share. In the FY2009 first quarter, the Company reported net income of $466,367, or $0.10 per diluted share, which included income tax expense of $301,892.

"We are pleased with our first quarter results, considering the current economic environment," stated Michael J. Pecora, Chief Executive Officer of Unilens Vision Inc. "Continued growth for our C-Vue brand of lenses sold exclusively to independent practitioners, combined with a 8% growth in royalty revenue derived from Bausch & Lomb's sales of multifocal lenses that use our key technologies, was responsible for our record performance."

"I am also pleased to report that the Unilens' Board of Directors declared its regular quarterly dividend of US $0.09 per common share, payable next Friday November 27, 2009. "This decision was based on the Company's current balance sheet, and projected operating cash flows and is consistent with the Board's commitment that shareholders should share directly in the earnings achieved by management while continuing to execute our growth strategy," concluded Mr. Pecora.
