("MD Office"), a mobile diagnostic imaging provider servicing customers in Northern California.

Digirad President and CEO Matthew G.

MD Office is a very well-run business providing the same mobile nuclear diagnostic imaging services as us.

We are very excited to have the MD Office employees join the Digirad family, and we are excited to be in this new region and the growth opportunities it presents."

MD Office generated approximately $2.9 million in revenues in 2014. Once MD Office goes through a short integration period, it is expected to be accretive on an EBITDA basis, producing over $500,000 of EBITDA on an annual basis, assuming the same level of 2014 revenues.

Total upfront consideration issued at closing was 610,000 common shares of the Company. In addition, there is a cash earn-out opportunity of up to $400,000 over approximately three years based on meeting certain EBITDA targets.
