World News: . []

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., May 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- United-Guardian, Inc. (NASDAQ:UG) announced today that the company's Board of Directors, at its meeting on May 17, 2017, declared a cash dividend of $0.42 per share, to be paid on June 12, 2017 to all stockholders of record as of the close of business on May 30, 2017. This will be the 22 consecutive year that the company has paid a dividend.

Ken Globus, President of United-Guardian, stated, “Based on improved first quarter financial results, along with strong sales to date for the second quarter, the Board decided that it would be in the best interest of our stockholders to increase the mid-year dividend to $0.42 per share, an increase of 20% from the $0.35 per share dividend that we paid in June 2016. With the resumption of purchases of one of our Lubrajel products for sale in China, along with strong sales of our Renacidin Irrigation, the Board felt that there was sufficient justification, and more than enough cash reserves, to increase the mid-year dividend.”
