Digirad Corporation Reports 2012 Third Quarter and Nine-Month
Financial Results 
POWAY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 --  Digirad Corporation
(NASDAQ: DRAD) today reported 2012 third quarter revenue of $11.8
million, 2012 nine-month revenue of $37.5 million and an ending cash,
cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities balance of $27.2
million. The net use of cash during the nine months ended September
30, 2012 included approximately $1.0 million to repurchase
approximately 490,000 shares of Digirad common stock under the
Company's stock repurchase program.  
Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented, "The Digirad Imaging Solutions
(DIS) business continued to generate cash in the 2012 third quarter,
though revenues in the period lagged slightly due to a
lower-than-normal number of days serviced during the summer season.
In addition, hospital and cardiology practice camera sales continued
to be soft, although we have seen orders and unit sales begin to
rebound recently, delivering positive momentum to kick off the fourth
quarter." 
Clyde continued, "It has been a time of substantial change and
progress within the Company following the recent restructuring of our
Board of Directors. We have made positive changes to our executive
team, including a new CFO and new leadership for our commercial
operations team. In addition, we are nearing the end of the in-depth
business assessment being undertaken by the Company, led by the
Board's Strategic Advisory committee. We look forward to sharing the
resulting strategy to drive growth and deliver increasing shareholder
value in the near future."
