Digirad Reaches Quarterly Net Income
POWAY, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq: DRAD), today reported it was ahead of internal schedules on its 2009 goal of generating consistent profitability and positive cash flow. Net income was $44,000 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009.
Digirad CEO Todd Clyde said, "We are pleased to report significant financial and operational progress during the first quarter. We previously communicated our 2009 goals as:
1) Creating greater efficiency by selling or closing underperforming hubs; 2) improving our approach to launching and growing Centers of Influence (COI); 3) introducing new imaging technologies; 4) developing new technology platforms; and lastly, 5) progress toward consistent profitability and positive cash flow.
"We are ahead of plan on nearly every one of these goals. We have sold or closed all but one underperforming hub, achieved double-digit growth in our current Centers of Influence locations, launched our Cardius(R) X-ACT rapid cardiac SPECT/VCT imaging system to help open the hospital and large cardiology practice markets, recorded net income in the first quarter of 2009 and burned less cash than anticipated."
First Quarter Financial Highlights:
Clyde added, "Our DIS personnel and equipment leasing services segment is operating today on a stronger base-business footprint. We continue to remain focused on driving positive margins as we attract new business in the markets where we already have presence and can leverage our teams, assets and COI relationships. In this quarter, we felt the effects of the poor economy, which impacted the purchasing patterns of our camera customers. Although we have little visibility into how long the negative camera sales trend may last, we remain focused on our goal of achieving consistent profitability and cash flow."
