Digirad Corporation Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Positive Trends in Both Product and Service Revenue and Margins Continue

POWAY, CA -- (Marketwire - April 27, 2012) - Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported 2012 first quarter revenue of $13.0 million and an ending cash and available-for-sale securities balance of $29.1 million at March 31, 2012.

Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented, "Positive changes in both internal organization and external business environment continued to accelerate during the first quarter at Digirad. Both sides of the business -- Product and DIS -- trended up sequentially in the first quarter over the fourth quarter of 2011. Demand for our portable ergo camera picked up in the first quarter as we sold twice as many units as in the prior quarter. On the service side, new physician groups are signing up for DIS days as reimbursement has stabilized and the positive clinical and economic drivers become clearer."

Clyde continued, "Our commercial activities and R&D efforts are now also picking up as we explore new ways to accelerate growth in our Product business. Those activities, combined with an enhanced, shareholder-driven Board and additions to the management team, are creating excitement in the organization as we look to the coming year. In 2012, we expect to generate positive cash flow from our DIS business and increase sales of both our cardiac and ergo cameras. We also continue to explore various strategic initiatives, including examining where our core solid state camera technologies can be applied with greater success in the marketplace."
