ST. LOUIS, July 21 Young Innovations, Inc. (Nasdaq: YDNT) today announced record earnings for the second quarter and for the first six-months ended June 30, 2009.

Sales for the second quarter of 2009 were $24.6 million, a decrease of 4.9% over the $25.9 million reported for the second quarter of 2008. Income from operations increased 4.8% to $5.4 million from $5.2 million in the prior year. Net income for the second quarter increased 7.4% to $3.3 million from $3.1 million in 2008. Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2009 were $0.42, an increase of 10.5% over the $0.38 reported in the prior year quarter. Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.04 and $0.03 for quarters ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively, while diluted shares outstanding for the quarter declined 2.7% to 7.9 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, sales were $48.4 million, decreasing 3.8% from the $50.3 million reported in the prior year period. Income from operations increased 6.9% to $10.4 million from $9.7 million in the prior year six-month period. Net income was $6.5 million, increasing 9.3% from $5.9 million in the prior year. Diluted earnings per share were $0.82 for the six months ended June 30, 2009, an increase of 13.9% from $0.72 in the same period of 2008. Diluted earnings per share were affected by equity compensation expense of $0.07 and $0.06 for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively, while diluted shares outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2009 declined 4.1% to 7.9 million.

Sales of our consumable products continued to be stable in the second quarter despite the challenging economic environment, while demand for our diagnostic products remained weak. Consumable product sales, which include preventive, infection control, endodontic, micro-applicator and home care product lines, were roughly equivalent to the prior year quarter. Sales of diagnostic products were approximately $1.1 million less than the prior year quarter. In addition, the strong US Dollar had a negative impact of approximately $286,000 on overall sales. Gross and operating margins increased in the second quarter, due in part to the benefits of operating efficiencies implemented last year, price increases in the second half of 2008, and favorable product mix.

Throughout the second quarter, we remained focused on our core operating strategies. In order to enhance and expand customer relationships, we completed the design and development of a new customer management system. Operating improvements made during the quarter included redesigned workflow and new automation in two key facilities. During the quarter we also continued to expand our product offerings with noted progress in strengthening our infection control product line.

Overall, we are pleased with the second quarter results. We are encouraged by the continued improvements in operating results despite the weak economic environment. We believe the investments we have made over the last few years to strengthen the Company have provided an excellent foundation for future growth.
