Digirad Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Digirad Generates Q3 Net Income; Fourth Consecutive Quarter Positive Cash

POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 4, 2011) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported 2011 third quarter revenue of $13.4 million, 2011 nine-month revenue of $41.9 million and an ending cash and available-for-sale securities balance of $31.6 million at September 30, 2011.

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented: "We continue to improve our operating margins, grow our revenue modestly and generate cash for the fourth quarter in a row. We increased camera revenue in our product business segment, which was up 12.4 percent compared to the third quarter of 2010, thanks in part to our new ergo general purpose portable imaging system. Revenue from our Digirad Imaging Solutions business, or DIS, decreased from last quarter and the third quarter of last year, which we believe is due to the seasonality of that business and the continued reimbursement pressures and uncertainty in the overall healthcare market."

Clyde continued: "In our DIS business, we have made it a priority to work closely with our current physician customers and help maximize imaging operations of our existing customers. We remain optimistic about the acceptance our portable ergo camera is having in the marketplace. While sales of ergo have not grown as quickly as we hoped, we believe that we are building a base through our marketing of ergo, which will result in better future sales, once capital expenditures in hospitals begin to increase."
