Avoiding Null output marker from a function

Dear Mathematica community,

I am having difficulties that the documentation has not resolved to
date for me. It is this:

I have defined a function in a Mathematica notebook and then saved it
as text to include it in a package. The package currently contains two
functions. The function of interest returns a 2-element list. The
numbers the function computes appears to be OK, but an annoying
"Null^3" is appended, presumably as a placeholder for supressed
output. Something like:

\!\({\(-0.00005337553998992267`\)\ Null\^3, 5000.147261086986`\ Null

I would like to eliminate that from the output. When I run the
function from the notebook, no such 'Null's are seen. The function
consists of several steps, intermediate variables, a call to FindRoot,
etc. Semicolons separate these steps, as required.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
