POWAY, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2012) - Digirad Corporation (
Digirad CEO Todd Clyde commented, "The Digirad Imaging Solutions (DIS) business continued to generate cash in the 2012 third quarter, though revenues in the period lagged slightly due to a lower-than-normal number of days serviced during the summer season. In addition, hospital and cardiology practice camera sales continued to be soft, although we have seen orders and unit sales begin to rebound recently, delivering positive momentum to kick off the fourth quarter."
Clyde continued, "It has been a time of substantial change and progress within the Company following the recent restructuring of our Board of Directors. We have made positive changes to our executive team, including a new CFO and new leadership for our commercial operations team. In addition, we are nearing the end of the in-depth business assessment being undertaken by the Company, led by the Board's Strategic Advisory committee. We look forward to sharing the resulting strategy to drive growth and deliver increasing shareholder value in the near future."
