Digirad Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter And Year-End Financial Results

SUWANEE, Ga., Feb. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq:DRAD) today reported fourth quarter earnings of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, with total revenues of $12.5 million. Ending cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities was $26.4 million.

Digirad President and CEO Matt Molchan said, "The financial results and the operational progress made by the organization in the fourth quarter continues to be right on track and illustrate how we can continue to generate profitability and cash from the business while implementing the framework and business discipline necessary to sustain growth for the future.

"In DIS, we added customers and leveraged our resources more efficiently, and as a result, increased our margins in our operating hubs. In Diagnostic Imaging, we increased margins on system sales during the period, and for all of Digirad, as expected, we generated cash flow from operations and profits. Along with our results for the fourth quarter, we also recently announced the termination of the lease of our former headquarters, a move we think will save between $400,000 to $500,000 annually, showing that we continue to look for meaningful ways to right-size our business and squeeze efficiency from it." Molchan added, "Our general expectation continues to be that we will be a net cash flow generator on an annual basis and will continue to deliver value back to shareholders via a growing business enterprise and a continued and sustainable dividend."

The Company previously announced on February 3, 2014 a dividend of $0.05 per share that was paid on February 24, 2014, to shareholders of record on February 14, 2014.
