Digirad Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Service Growth Continues; Cash, Investments Exceed $31.1 Million

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported 2011 second quarter revenue of $14.2 million, 2011 six-month revenue of $28.4 million and an ending cash and available-for-sale securities balance of $31.1 million at June 30, 2011.

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde stated, "Positive progress continues at Digirad as we returned to year-over-year revenue growth. Our DIS business performed well as we continued to add new customers, generate additional revenue and expand margins. Our camera sales were flat compared to the first quarter of 2011, impacted by a generally weak capital equipment marketplace."

Clyde continued, "Although we are disappointed our camera sales are not increasing at a higher rate, camera bookings were stronger in the second quarter as compared to the first quarter of 2011 and we continue to see customer interest in our ergo™ general purpose portable imaging system. We are strengthening our camera marketing initiatives and recently announced the hiring of Armando Jackson as Vice President of Product Sales. We are ahead of our plan to generate cash in 2011, due in part to our operational improvement in our DIS business and our continued management of the balance sheet."

Richard Slansky, CFO, added, "We generated positive cash from operations of approximately $0.8 million in the second quarter and ended the period with a total cash and investments position of $31.1 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.
