Stocks in this article: DRAD

Heartland Advisors, investment advisor to the Heartland Funds, today released a statement in support of Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD):

“Heartland Advisors has been a loyal Digirad Corporation shareholder since 2006 with holdings of 1.8 million shares as of March 31, 2012. We are pleased with the changes to Digirad’s corporate governance policies and look forward to hearing an update on strategic market opportunities. Shareholder value creation has been elusive since Digirad went public, but we support all eight current board members, including Gerhard F. Burbach, John M. Climaco, Todd P. Clyde, Jeffrey E. Eberwein, Charles M. Gillman, James B. Hawkins, R. King Nelson, and John W. Sayward, and believe they will unlock the company’s intrinsic value.”
