Dentsply Q3 sales up, income down

Dentsply International saw a 14.4% increase in net sales for the third quarter of 2011 (end-September 30) due to positive impacts from the acquisition of Astra Tech, foreign currency exchange rates, and internal sales growth.

Net sales were $619.8 million in the quarter, compared with $541.8 million reported for the third quarter of 2010, the company announced.

Net income, however, declined 4.5% to $60.6 million, compared with 63.8 million in the third quarter of 2010.

"We are pleased to report another quarter of strong performance despite the orthodontic supply disruption in Japan," said Dentsply Chairman and CEO Bret in a press release. "We are also excited to have closed the Astra Tech transaction during the quarter, allowing us to begin the integration process earlier than we originally anticipated."
