SUWANEE, Ga., March 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq: DRAD) reported today its financial results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2018.

Total revenues from continuing operations for the fourth quarter were $25.9 million, compared to $26.3 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year.

Net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $0.9 million, or $0.05 net loss per diluted share, compared to net loss from continuing operations of $22.6 million or $1.13 net loss per diluted share in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $1.2 million, or $0.06 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 fourth quarter was $2.8 million, compared to $2.0 million for the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was $0.8 million, compared to $0.8 million in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP free cash flow was $2.9 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $1.0 million in the same period in the prior year.

Total revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 were $104.2 million, compared to $104.6 million in the same period in the prior year.

Net loss from continuing operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was $3.8 million, or $0.19 net loss per diluted share, compared to net loss of $35.0 million, or $1.75 net loss per diluted share in the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP adjusted net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was $2.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share in the same period in the prior year.

Operating cash flow for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was $5.1 million, compared to $6.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was $6.0 million, compared to $6.3 million in the same period in the prior year.  Non-GAAP free cash flow was $5.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, compared to $3.7 million in the same period in the prior year.

Digirad President and CEO Matt Molchan said, “Overall, we finished 2018 within our guidance range for revenue and free cash flow, but below for adjusted EBITDA. Our adjusted EBITDA was below our guidance range mainly due to lower than expected camera sales in Diagnostic Imaging and higher than anticipated costs in our Mobile Healthcare unit. We have reorganized our business for 2019 to better align our executive management team to focus on growing revenues organically and reducing expenses across the whole organization. From an overall business perspective, our Diagnostic Imaging Solutions (DIS) unit performed well during the year, growing revenues by 4% year over year. Our Mobile Healthcare business experienced higher than anticipated costs associated with equipment and trailer maintenance, which offset better than expected revenue performance. Diagnostic Imaging finished the year below expectations, but did have a solid 4th quarter, which should bode well for our performance in 2019. In terms of debt levels, we paid down $10 million in debt during the year, which amounts to a 50% reduction versus a year ago, and we paid down $4 million of debt in the 4th Quarter alone.”

The proposed merger with ATRM Holdings, Inc. to form “HoldCo”, previously announced on September 10th, 2018, continues to progress with an anticipated closing midyear 2019. As previously stated, HoldCo, once it is formed, 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 its highest and best use.

Finally, Digirad Corporation has approximately $84 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.

2018 Financial Guidance

The Company met its previously announced 2018 financial guidance for revenues from continuing operations of between $100 million and $105 million and free cash flow between $4 million and $5 million. The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $6.0 million compared to previously announced target of $7.0 million.

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 March 1, 2019.
