Digirad Corporation Reports 2011 First Quarter Financial Results

Cash and Investments Hit $30.6 Million; ergo™ Portable Camera Sales Increase

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2011) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported first quarter revenue of $14.2 million and an ending cash and available-for-sale securities balance of $30.6 million at March 31, 2011.

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde stated, "We are off to a solid start in 2011. Our service business is now benefitting from a stable reimbursement environment and we have begun to add new customers as well as expand the service offering to a broader group of those practices. In addition, interest in our new ergo™ general purpose portable imaging system continued to grow in Q1 as we performed on-site demonstrations with potential customers. Despite the positive feedback indicating that the ergo product is addressing a portable need in hospitals, the sales cycle in that environment is longer than it is in the physician office market."

Clyde continued, "We expect to see consolidated revenue growth in 2011, especially as we enter the second half as several market initiatives gain traction -- resulting in improving margins and profitability."

First Quarter 2011 Summary

  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $14.2 million, compared to $15.1 million in the prior year and $14.7 million in the traditionally strong fourth quarter. DIS-only revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $9.6 million, compared to $10.7 million for the same period of the prior year and $9.4 million in the prior quarter. Product revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $4.6 million, compared to $4.3 million for the same period of the prior year and $5.2 million in the prior quarter.
  • Gross profit for the first quarter of 2011 was $3.5 million, or 24.8 percent of revenue, compared to $3.4 million, or 22.4 percent of revenue, in the same period of the prior year and $3.6 million, or 24.6 percent of revenue, in the prior quarter.
  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.4 million, or $0.02 loss per share, compared to net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.07 loss per share, in the same period of the prior year and a net loss of $0.6 million, or $0.03 loss per share, in the prior quarter.
  • Cash and cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities totaled $30.6 million, or $1.64 per share as of March 31, 2011. Cash and cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities totaled $30.2 million, or $1.63 per share as of December 31, 2010.

Richard Slansky, CFO, added, "We generated positive cash from operations of approximately $0.5 million in the first quarter and ended the 2011 first quarter with a total cash and investments position of $30.6 million. Total operating expenses continued to decline year-over-year as a function of cost reduction measures implemented in the past 2 years, and we anticipate maintaining strict controls on spending -- even as we invest in new opportunities for growth and expansion."

"To repeat our goals for 2011," Clyde concluded, "We expect to: 1) generate free cash flow for the full year 2011; 2) increase ergo sales by further driving imaging to the point of care; 3) expand margins in both our Product and DIS businesses; and 4) achieve consolidated top-line revenue growth in the second half of the year."
