Dentsply sees small increase in Q1 sales

Dentsply International reported net sales of $732 million for the first quarter of 2013 (end-March 31), up 2% from $716 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Excluding precious metals content, net sales for the quarter were $677 million, up 1% from $666 million in the same period of 2012.

Net income for the quarter was $72 million, compared with $53 million in the first quarter of 2012.

While the company reported record revenue in the quarter, the slight increase for the quarter reflected the slow growth of the global dental market and investments made by the company during the quarter, according to Bret Wise, chairman and CEO.
