8 August 2012 17:38 in Dental Supplier News
Dentsply has published its financial results for the second quarter of 2012, during which it achieved a significant 25.2 percent year-on-year rise in sales.
Its net sales total for the period reached a record $763 million (486.94 million pounds), with growth driven largely by recent acquisitions, but also internal sales improvements in the US, Europe and the rest of the world.
Constant currency net sales growth excluding precious metals content reached 30 percent, while its earning per diluted share figure of $0.62 on an adjusted basis also represented a quarterly record for Dentsply.
Bret Wise, chairman and chief executive officer of Dentsply, said: "Our business continues to perform well, particularly in light of macroeconomic issues in the US and Europe and a significant weakening of the euro during the quarter."
This latest total builds on the previous record $716.4 million performance reported in the first quarter of 2012 and places Dentsply on track to achieve its best annual performance to date.
