Digirad Corporation Reports Financial Results for First Quarter of 2015

  • Announces positive adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA for 8th quarter in a row
  • Confirms financial guidance for 2015
  • Announces a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 cents per share

SUWANEE, Ga., April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq:DRAD) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Total revenues for the 2015 first quarter were $13.8 million, an increase of 6 percent compared to the prior year's first quarter revenues of $13.0 million.

Adjusted net income for the 2015 first quarter was $261,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $353,000, or $0.02 per diluted share in the prior year's first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the 2015 first quarter was $797,000, compared to $789,000 in for the prior year first quarter. A reconciliation of adjusted net income and adjusted EBITDA is provided later in this release.

Digirad President and CEO Matt Molchan said, "Despite all the weather related activity up and down the east coast during the first quarter, which primarily affected our Diagnostic Services businesses, I am pleased with our results. We have made solid progress on all our initiatives, and we are quickly integrating our recent acquisition of MD Office Solutions."

Molchan continued, "With the completion of our first year of ownership of Telerhythmics, I am also pleased to announce that we have completed our integration efforts. We have had some challenges with integration efforts and weather related to Telerhythmics, but believe that we are poised for growth going forward now that these two items are behind us. Based on this, and other forward opportunities we are seeing, we expect to finish solidly within our previously announced 2015 financial guidance."

The previously announced 2015 financial guidance was to generate revenues between $61.0 million and $63.0 million; non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share between $0.19 and $0.21; and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA between $6.5 million and $6.9 million. The Company's non-GAAP financial measure adjusted diluted earnings per share excludes restructuring charges, acquired intangible asset amortization and acquisition related income tax adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA further excludes stock-based compensation expense.

During the 2015 first quarter, the Company generated cash flow from operations of $122,000, compared to a cash use in operations of $1.8 million in the prior year's first quarter. The Company's cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities balance at March 31, 2015 was $20.9 million, a $1.1 million decrease from the December 31, 2014 balance of $22.0 million. Cash activity for the quarter included normal working capital changes along with payment of cash dividends.

The Company also announced a cash dividend of $0.05 cents per share that will be paid on May 27, 2015, to shareholders of record on May 13, 2015.
