|United-Guardian, Inc., is a Delaware corporation. The Company manufactures and markets cosmetic ingredients, personal and health care products, medical lubricants, pharmaceuticals, and specialty industrial products. It also conducts research and development, mainly related to the development of new and unique cosmetic and personal care products. The Company operates in one business segment. Its products are separated into four distinct product categories: personal care products (including cosmetic ingredients), pharmaceuticals, medical products, and industrial products. Personal products include: LUBRAJEL is a line of water-based moisturizing and lubricating gel formulations that are used as ingredients in personal care and medical products; LUBRAJEL PF is different from the other products in the LUBRAJEL line in that it is a completely preservative-free form of LUBRAJEL; LUBRASIL™ is a special form of LUBRAJEL in which silicone oil is incorporated into a LUBRAJEL base by microemulsification, thereby maintaining clarity similar to the other LUBRAJEL products; LUBRAJEL II XD is a version of LUBRAJEL that was developed to be a direct replacement for one of the competitive products to LUBRAJEL. Medical Products includes: LUBRAJEL RR and RC are both gels used primarily as lubricants for urinary catheters; LUBRAJEL LC was developed for a specific customer who required a product suitable for oral use, to be used in a line of mouth moisturizers that it markets; LUBRAJEL MG is the original form of LUBRAJEL, developed as a medical lubricant; and LUBRAJEL FLUID is a very low viscosity form of LUBRAJEL that was developed to provide superior lubrication in water-soluble products. Pharmaceuticals products include: ENACIDIN is a prescription drug product that is used primarily to prevent and to dissolve calcifications in urethral catheters and the urinary bladder; CLORPACTIN® WCS-90 is an antimicrobial product used primarily in urology to treat infections in the urinary bladder. Industrial products include: DESELEX™ Liquid is a sequestering and chelating agent that is a replacement for phosphates in the manufacture of detergents; POLYCOMPLEX M and Q are complexing agents capable of producing clear solutions of specific water-insoluble materials. The Company’s personal care products, including cosmetic ingredients, are marketed globally by six marketing partners, of which Ashland Specialty Ingredients (‘ASI’) is the largest. The products are sold directly to those marketing partners, which in turn resell those products to their customers for use in the manufacture or compounding of the customers’ personal care and cosmetic products. The Company’s non-pharmaceutical medical products and the specialty industrial products are sold directly by the Company to the end users or to contract manufacturers utilized by the end users. The Company’s pharmaceutical products are marketed by direct advertising, mailings, and trade exhibitions, and are sold to end users mainly through major drug wholesalers, which purchase the Company’s products outright for resale to their customers. The Company also sells a small quantity of pharmaceutical products directly to hospitals and pharmacies. The Company's products are sold under trademarks or trade names owned by the Company. The marks for the important products, LUBRAJEL® and RENACIDIN®, as well as some other Company trademarks, are registered as trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office as well as with the appropriate regulatory agencies in some foreign countries. Any medical device products developed by the Company will be subject to FDA regulation.|
