Transforms into a Diversified Holding Company

Completes Private Placement of Preferred Stock for $3.0 Million

SUWANEE, Ga., Sept. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD) (“Digirad” or the “Company”) announced today that it completed the acquisition of ATRM Holdings, Inc. (“ATRM”), which transforms the Company into a diversified holding company (“HoldCo”).  In addition, as a result of the Merger, Digirad issued an aggregate of approximately 1.6 million shares of its newly authorized 10.0% Series A Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, with a stated value and liquidation preference of $10 per share (the “Digirad Preferred Stock”), in exchange for all of the outstanding shares of ATRM’s common and preferred stock.  ATRM will deregister and delist its common stock and ATRM will continue as a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  The Company anticipates that the Digirad Preferred Stock issued pursuant to the Merger will begin trading on the The Nasdaq Global Market under the ticker symbol “DRADP” on September 11, 2019.

In connection with the Merger, Digirad also completed a private placement, issuing 300,000 shares of Digirad Preferred Stock to Lone Star Value Investors, LP for a price of $10 per share for total proceeds to the Company of $3.0 million.  The Company intends to use the proceeds from this offering for the repayment of debt owed by a wholly-owned subsidiary of ATRM.  The securities sold in the private placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Act”) and may not be resold absent registration under, or exemption from registration under, the Act.

The Merger is part of the transformation of Digirad into HoldCo.  Following the Merger, the HoldCo structure’s team includes Jeffrey Eberwein (Chairman), Matthew Molchan (CEO of Digirad Health, Inc.), Daniel Koch (CEO of ATRM), David Noble (Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer), and Hannah Bible (VP – Legal).  Digirad believes that converting into a diversified holding company with a shared services center will create significant value for Digirad stockholders over time because the conversion is expected to improve future revenue, cash flow, and earnings growth, and create a platform for future bolt-on acquisitions and other growth opportunities.
