Physicians Formula Posts Small Gain in Third

December 8, 2008

Physician's Formula's third quarter sales rose 2.5% to $20.3 million. Net income soared from $102,000 to nearly $1.7 million.

“Given the very soft consumer environment, we are pleased with our double-digit net sales growth we have achieved in the first nine months of the year. This growth represents the success of our 2008 new product introductions, as well as 2008 distribution gains,” said Ingrid Jackel, chairwoman and chief executive offier of Physicians Formula.

While the company anticipates the weakened consumer environment to continue well into 2009, “We remain dedicated to providing consumers the new products and formulas that will expand our market share and maintain our philosophy of product innovation,” Ms. Jackel continued. “We are very excited about our new strategic initiatives that form the foundation of our new 2009 line. These initiatives include expansion of Organic wear, innovation in the Mineral Wear and bronzer category, as well as the continued rejuvenation of our eye makeup products.”

Net sales for the first nine months of 2008 rose 10.6% to $85.8 million. Net income rose 21% to $4.7 million. More info:
