Anticipates growing revenues, earnings, and cash flow while optimizing costs and capital optimization
Seeks additional attractive acquisition opportunities
SUWANEE, Ga., Sept. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digirad Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAD; DRADP) (“Digirad” or the “Company”) converted into a diversified holding company (“HoldCo”) following the September 10, 2019 acquisition of ATRM Holdings, Inc. (“ATRM”). Digirad announced today preliminary guidance for 2020 and the primary tenets of its growth strategy.
HoldCo has three divisions*:
- Healthcare Imaging (Digirad Health): designs, manufactures, and distributes diagnostic medical imaging products and offers mobile healthcare services and solutions to healthcare providers (hospitals and physicians)
- Building & Construction (ATRM): services residential and commercial construction projects by manufacturing modular housing units, structural wall panels, permanent wood foundation systems, and other engineered wood products, and supplies general contractors with building materials
- Real Estate & Investment Management: manages real estate assets (currently three manufacturing plants in Maine) and investment funds

“We are very excited to commence operations as a diversified holding company,” said Jeff Eberwein, Chairman of Digirad. “Under this new structure, our objective is to maximize shareholder value over the long term through high-return internal investments that promote revenue growth, operating efficiencies, and cash flow generation. We will also look for attractive acquisition opportunities in two categories: bolt-on acquisitions for our existing platform companies as well as acquisitions that create new platform companies for HoldCo.”
FY 2020 Guidance
For FY 2020, Digirad’s guidance ranges are revenues of $130 million to $150 million, adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) of $10 million to $12 million, and free cash flow (as defined below) of $7 million to $9 million. ($5 million to $7 million after preferred stock dividends). Free cash flow will be used for debt reduction, internal growth initiatives, and acquisitions.
The HoldCo structure allows each division to benefit from the use of a shared services center, which will handle corporate functions so that the management teams of the operating businesses can focus on operations, growth, and bolt-on acquisition opportunities. The Company believes that this model will result in lower costs and improved operating and financial performance going forward. It will also optimize the use of capital and other internal resources.
