  • Announces year over year Q1 revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth of 125% and 345%, respectively
  • Provides an update on the DMS Health acquisition
  • Recognizes previously reserved tax benefits due to expected increases in future profitability
  • Announces a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share
  • Updates financial guidance for 2016

SUWANEE, Ga., April 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq:DRAD) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Total revenues for the 2016 first quarter were $31.2 million, an increase of 125.1 percent compared to the prior year’s first quarter revenues of $13.8 million.

Adjusted net income for the 2016 first quarter was $1.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the prior year first quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the 2016 first quarter was $3.7 million, compared to $0.8 million in the prior year first quarter.

Digirad President and CEO Matt Molchan said, “Digirad had a strong quarter, driven by the inclusion of DMS Health's operations as part of our results starting on January 1st, and every business unit is performing above expectations. We believe this strong start to the year positions us well for 2016."

Molchan continued, “We are also pleased to announce solid progress with our integration efforts of DMS Health, with significant progress made in harmonizing our operations. We expect these integration efforts to continue for a few more quarters before full integration has been completed. Even though our main focus right now is on successfully integrating DMS Health, we are also beginning to focus on future revenue growth from customer, geographical and relationship synergies."

Based on the completion of the DMS Health acquisition and the expected increase to the Company’s future profitability, an updated analysis of our existing tax net operating loss ("NOL") carry forwards was conducted during the quarter ended March 31, 2016. Based on this analysis, the majority of reserved NOLs were released, resulting in an incremental income tax benefit of $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2016.

The Company also announced a cash dividend of $0.05 cents per share that will be paid on May 27, 2016, to shareholders of record on May 13, 2016.

2016 Financial Guidance

The Company reaffirms its previously announced fiscal year 2016 financial guidance of revenues between $125 million and $130 million and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA between $17 million and $18 million. In addition, based on the completion of the underlying transaction accounting, the Company is now providing financial guidance for adjusted diluted earnings per share between $0.30 and $0.35 for fiscal year 2016.
