Digirad Corporation Reports Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2019

74 Days ago

  • Performs within expectations, highlighted by DIS growth in revenue of 7% year over year
  • Closed asset-based loan of $20 million with Sterling National Bank
  • Made significant progress towards “HoldCo” transformation by creating new Star Holdings Real Estate division

SUWANEE, Ga., May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq: DRAD) reported today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Total revenues from continuing operations for the first quarter were $23.9 million, compared to $25.5 million in the first quarter of the prior year.

Net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter was $1.7 million, or $0.08 net loss per diluted share, compared to net loss from continuing operations of $1.4 million, or $0.07 net loss per diluted share in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.07 per diluted share in the same period in the prior year.

Operating cash flow for the first quarter was an outflow of $2.2 million, compared to an inflow of $0.4 million for the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter was $0.8 million, compared to $1.0 million in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP free cash flow was an outflow of $2.3 million for the first quarter, compared to an inflow of $0.3 million in the same period in the prior year.

Digirad President and CEO Matt Molchan said, “The first quarter of 2019 was within our expectations for revenue and adjusted EBITDA. Our Diagnostic Imaging Solutions (DIS) division performed well during the quarter with revenue growth of 7.0% year over year, outperforming our expectations for revenue and adjusted EBITDA. Our Mobile Healthcare division was met with extreme weather conditions throughout most of the first quarter, which led to less available scanning days and a decrease in expected revenue and adjusted EBITDA. Our Diagnostic Imaging division met our expectations for both revenue and adjusted EBITDA in the quarter. In terms of financing, we entered into a new asset-based loan agreement with Sterling National Bank (SNB) for $20 million. We used the proceeds from the SNB loan to refinance and terminate our agreement with Comerica Bank.”

Significant progress was made towards the formation of “HoldCo”, Digirad’s go-forward strategy previously announced on September 10th, 2018. A new subsidiary of Digirad - Star Real Estate Holdings USA (SRE) was created. This new division will manage the real estate assets of Digirad and the future “HoldCo” diversified holding company. SRE has already purchased 3 modular building factories and established positive cash flow lease backs for these facilities. Additionally, Digirad’s fourth and the final Fargo office building was recently sold for $750 thousand. The other three buildings were sold last year. The total sales price for all the Fargo properties was $1.7 million. As previously stated, HoldCo, once it is fully functional, expects to make high-return internal investments as well as look for attractive acquisition opportunities in addition to repurchasing shares. Share repurchases will be evaluated against organic growth investments and acquisitions, and the Company expects to continually allocate capital to maximize shareholder value.

Finally, Digirad Corporation has approximately $83.7 million of usable net operating losses (“NOL”) in the U.S., which the Company considers to be a very valuable asset for its stockholders. Protecting the value of this NOL asset limits the amount of stock than can be repurchased over a given time period. In order to protect the value of the NOL for all stockholders, the Company has a charter amendment in place that limits beneficial ownership of Digirad common stock to 4.99%. Stockholders who wish to own more than 4.99% of Digirad common stock, or who already own more than 4.99% of Digirad common stock and wish to buy more, may only acquire additional Shares with the Board’s prior written approval.

2019 Financial Guidance

The Company announced its financial guidance for 2019, which is to generate revenues from continuing operations of between $95 million and $100 million, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA between $5.5 million and $6.5 million and free cash flow between $3 million and $4 million.

Update on Proposed Preferred Offering

Digirad filed a prospectus and registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the initial filing on March 12, 2019, as amended on April 9, 2019, the “Prospectus”). Digirad continues to explore all options regarding selling shares of preferred stock, including a sale limited to one or several institutional investors in a private transaction.  However, it is unlikely that Digirad will proceed with its proposed offering of nonconvertible preferred stock on substantially the terms described in the Prospectus.  Digirad is continuing to speak with potential investors regarding potential investment, which may be on terms similar to what was described in the Prospectus or other terms, whether it is through a public or private transaction, although there can be no assurance that a transaction will close on these or any other terms.

Conference Call Information

A conference call is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. EDT on May 3, 2019 to discuss the results and management’s outlook. The call may be accessed by dialing 1-877-407-9039 (international callers: +1-201-689-8470) five minutes prior to the scheduled start time and referencing Digirad. A simultaneous webcast of the call may be accessed online from the Events & Presentations link on the Investor Relations page at http://ir.digirad.com/events-presentations; an archived replay of the webcast will be available within 15 minutes of the end of the conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures by Digirad Corporation

This Digirad news release presents the non-GAAP financial measures “adjusted net income (loss),” “adjusted net income (loss) per diluted share,” “free cash flow”, and “adjusted EBITDA.” The most directly comparable measure for these non-GAAP financial measures are net income and diluted net income per share. The Company has included below unaudited adjusted financial information, which presents the Company’s results of operations after excluding acquired intangible asset amortization, acquisition related contingent consideration adjustments, unrealized gain (loss) on available-for-sale securities, and non-recurring related income tax adjustments. Further excluded in the measure of adjusted EBITDA are interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation.

A discussion of the reasons why management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding Digirad’s financial condition and results of operations is included as Exhibit 99.2 to Digirad’s report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 3, 2019.
