Digirad Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2011 Financial Results

Achieves Positive Cash From Operations; Improved Product and DIS Gross Margins for Year

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported 2011 fourth quarter revenue of $11.9 million, 2011 full-year revenue of $53.7 million and an ending cash and available-for-sale securities balance of $30.5 million at December 31, 2011.

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented, "We laid out four key goals at the beginning of the year: generate positive cash flow, increase ergo sales, expand margins in both our Product and DIS business units and return to year-over-year growth in the second half of the year. We achieved the first three goals, but fell short on revenue growth due to a relatively weak fourth quarter in the Product division.

Clyde continued: "Going forward, we are seeing improvements in the capital equipment environment, more activity in the sales funnel on the Product side, continued stabilization in reimbursements and new opportunities in new camera markets. In 2012, we expect to continue to generate positive cash flow from our DIS business and to increase sales of both our cardiac and ergo cameras. We invested in strategic market research in the fourth quarter -- resulting in a better understanding of where our core technologies can be applied with greater success. Management and the Board are in the final stages of determining the best strategic path toward returning to a growth platform, and we look forward to communicating the specifics of those plans in the near future."
