Digirad Corporation Reports First Quarter Financial Results

Companies mentioned in this article: Digirad

POWAY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/13 -- Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported revenue of $11.5 million for the first quarter and an ending cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities balance of $25.8 million.

At the end of February, the Company announced that following a lengthy strategic review, management and the board of directors had determined a new strategic direction for the Company. That initiative included:

  • A significant restructuring, primarily of the Diagnostic Imaging camera operation to reduce costs by $3 million to $4 million, on an annual basis.

  • A go-forward focus on maximizing and growing cash flow from its DIS services business. This strategy will include executing on financially disciplined acquisitions that align to and expand cash flow from the DIS operations. The diagnostic imaging business will emphasize a streamlined camera selling effort and efficiency in generating cash flow from the service and maintenance business associated with its installed base of cameras.

  • The aggressive return of cash to shareholders via an increased stock repurchase program, for which the Board ultimately increased the stock repurchase program from its existing $4 million program ($2 million availability) to a $12 million program ($10 million availability).

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented on the progress made, "Commercial and corporate activity in the first quarter was brisk as the management team implemented major steps in the restructuring of the business and executed on the organizational changes that will result in a leaner, focused operation. Key recent moves included significant cuts in senior management and other positions that will not be required in the new corporate direction, a decrease in the size of the board of directors, and the acceleration in assessment of acquisition targets that might complement the DIS footprint."

Clyde continued, "Though these changes involved tough decisions and near term financial charges, we have already begun to decrease our ongoing expense levels in most key categories, and we should see a more significant impact of those reductions by the third quarter, with continued decreases in expenses through the end of fiscal year 2013."

Digirad President Matt Molchan said, "Run rates in the DIS business remained relatively stable in the first quarter. The year-over-year revenue and gross margin comparison were principally impacted by some pricing pressures and a favorable one-time workers compensation insurance credit of approximately $200,000 reflected in the Q1 2012 gross margin results. During the period, we also completed the integration of the operations of the business we acquired at the end of 2012 and that business began to contribute to our results in Q1 2013."

Molchan continued, "Though we experienced some large restructuring charges during the quarter and anticipate more charges in the second quarter, by the middle of the year we anticipate we will have the majority of those expenses behind us. In addition, since we announced our new focus, we have identified a growing number of potential "tuck-in" acquisition targets to assess in key DIS regions. The team is focused on implementing all aspects of our new strategy, and I am pleased with the progress we have made thus far. We should start to see the effects of our restructuring in the second half of 2013 as those efforts start translating into improved income and cash flow."

First Quarter 2013 Summary

  • Total revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $11.5 million, compared to $13.0 million for the same period in the prior year. DIS revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $8.9 million, compared to $9.3 million for the same period of the prior year, which included some pricing pressures experience during the 2013 first quarter. Diagnostic Imaging revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.6 million, compared to $3.7 million for the same period of the prior year, reflecting a disruption as the Company deployed its restructuring plan.

  • Gross profit for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.8 million, or 24 percent of revenue, compared to $3.7 million, or 28 percent of revenue in the prior year quarter.

  • Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.4 million, or $0.13 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.07 loss per share, in the same period of the prior year. Adjusted net loss for the 2013 first quarter, excluding the $1.0 million in expenses incurred for nonrecurring items related to restructuring activities, was $1.4 million or $0.07 loss per share on an adjusted basis.

  • Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 was $5.2 million, compared to $5.0 million in the same period in the prior year. Adjusted operating expenses for the first quarter of 2013 was $4.2 million, compared to the $5.0 million in the same period of the prior year, which reflects the beginning of the restructuring expense reductions since the February 28, 2013 restructuring announcement.

  • Cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities totaled $25.8 million as of March 31, 2013. Cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities totaled $27.2 million as of December 31, 2012.
