_____________________________________
PROXY STATEMENT
The Board of Directors of Digirad Corporation, a Delaware corporation (referred to in this Proxy Statement as “Digirad,” “the Company,” “we”, “our” or “us”), is soliciting proxies from our stockholders in connection with our 2019 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on May 1, 2019 and at any adjournment(s), postponement(s) or other delay(s) thereof (the “Annual Meeting”). We will hold the meeting at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time at our offices at 53 Forest Avenue, 1st Floor, Old Greenwich, CT 06870.
The accompanying proxy is solicited by the Board of Directors and is revocable by the stockholder at any time before it is voted. This Proxy Statement is being mailed to stockholders of the Company on or about March 26, 2019 and is accompanied by the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K (without exhibits) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “Annual Report”).
Who May Vote
Only holders of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“common stock”), outstanding as of the close of business on March 13, 2019 (the “Record Date”) are entitled to receive notice of, and to vote at, the Annual Meeting. As of the Record Date, there were 20,309,908 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. Each share of common stock is entitled to one vote on all matters. No other class of securities will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. There are no cumulative voting rights.
Voting Requirements
The holders of a majority of the common stock issued and outstanding and entitled to vote thereat, present in person or represented by proxy, constitute a quorum for the transaction of business at the Annual Meeting. Shares that reflect abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, count as present at the Annual Meeting for the purposes of determining a quorum. A broker non-vote occurs when a bank, broker, or other nominee holding shares for a beneficial owner votes on one proposal but does not vote on another proposal because, with respect to such other proposal, the nominee does not have discretionary voting power and has not received instructions from the beneficial owner.
The vote requirement for each matter is as follows:
Proposal 1 (Election of Directors) — Directors are elected by a plurality of the votes cast, and the seven nominees who receive the greatest number of favorable votes cast in the election of directors will be elected directors to serve until the 2020 annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualified.
Proposal 2 (Ratification of Appointment of Independent Auditors) The ratification of the appointment of our independent auditors requires the favorable vote of the holders of a majority of the common stock having voting power present in person or represented by proxy and entitled to vote thereon.
Proposal 3 (Advisory (Non-Binding) Stockholder Approval of Named Executive Officer Compensation) The advisory (non-binding) approval of the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers requires the favorable vote of the holders of a majority of the common stock having voting power present in person or represented by proxy and entitled to vote thereon.
Proposal 4 (Approval of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal) To approve an amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a (a) reverse stock split at a ratio not less than 1-for-5 and not greater than 1-for-10, with the exact ratio to be set within that range at the discretion of our Board of Directors without further approval or authorization of our stockholders, and (b) a reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock to 30 million shares authorized (the “Reverse Stock Split Proposal”) requires the favorable vote of the holders of a majority of our outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote.
In the election of directors (Proposal 1), abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, will be disregarded and have no effect on the outcome of the vote.

1



With respect to the ratification of the appointment of our independent registered public accounting firm (Proposal 2), and the advisory (non-binding) stockholder approval of named executive officer compensation (Proposal 3), abstentions will have the same effect as voting against such proposals and broker non-votes, if any, will be disregarded and have no effect on the outcome of the vote on Proposal 3. The approval of Proposal 2 is a routine proposal on which a broker or other nominee is generally empowered to vote in the absence of voting instructions from the beneficial owner, so broker non-votes are unlikely to result from Proposal 2. With respect to the approval of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal (Proposal 4), abstentions and broker non-votes will have the same effect as voting against such proposal.
The Board of Directors’ Voting Recommendations
The Board of Directors recommends that you vote your shares “ FOR ” each of the Board of Directors’ seven nominees that are standing for election to the Board of Directors (Proposal 1); “ FOR ” the ratification of the appointment of our independent auditors (Proposal 2); “ FOR ” the advisory (non-binding) stockholder approval of the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (Proposal 3); and “ FOR ” approval of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal (Proposal 4).
How to Vote
If you are a stockholder of record as of the Record Date, you may vote (1) by signing and dating the enclosed proxy card and returning it in the enclosed postage-paid envelope or (2) in person by ballot at the Annual Meeting. If you hold your shares of common stock in a brokerage account or by a bank or other nominee, you must follow the voting procedures provided by your broker, bank or other nominee, which instructions will be included with your proxy materials.
Giving us your proxy means you authorize the Board of Directors’ designated proxy holders (who are identified on the enclosed proxy card) to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting in the manner that you have indicated and in their best judgment on such other matters that may properly come before the Annual Meeting. If you sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card but do not indicate your vote, the designated proxy holders will vote your shares “ FOR ” each of the Board of Director’s seven nominees that are standing for election to the Board of Directors (Proposal 1); “ FOR ” the ratification of the appointment of our independent auditors (Proposal 2); “ FOR ” the advisory (non-binding) stockholder approval of the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers (Proposal 3); and “ FOR ” approval of the Reverse Stock Split Proposal (Proposal 4).
If You Plan to Attend the Annual Meeting
Attendance at the Annual Meeting will be limited to stockholders and the Company’s invited guests. Each stockholder may be asked to present valid picture identification, such as a driver’s license or passport. Stockholders holding shares of common stock in brokerage accounts or through a bank or other nominee may be required to show a brokerage statement or account statement reflecting stock ownership. Cameras, recording devices and other electronic devices will not be permitted at the Annual Meeting. You may contact David J. Noble at (800) 947-6134 for directions to the Annual Meeting.
If you are a stockholder of record as of the Record Date, you may vote your shares of common stock in person by ballot at the Annual Meeting. If you hold your shares of common stock in a stock brokerage account or through a bank or other nominee, you will not be able to vote in person at the Annual Meeting unless you have previously requested and obtained a “legal proxy” from your broker, bank or other nominee and present it at the Annual Meeting.
Revoking a Proxy
You may revoke your proxy by submitting a new proxy with a later date or by notifying our Corporate Secretary in writing at 1048 Industrial Court, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. If you attend the Annual Meeting in person and vote by ballot, any previously submitted proxy will be revoked.
How We Solicit Proxies
We will solicit proxies and will bear the entire cost of our solicitation, including the preparation, assembly, printing, and mailing of this Proxy Statement and any additional materials furnished to our stockholders. We have retained InvestorCom LLC to assist us in the solicitation of proxies, as described in “General Cost of Solicitation” below. The initial solicitation of proxies by mail may be supplemented by telephone, fax, e-mail, internet, and personal solicitation by our directors, officers, or other regular employees. No additional compensation for soliciting proxies will be paid to our directors, officers or other regular employees for their proxy solicitation efforts. Fees paid to InvestorCom LLC are described in “General Cost of Solicitation” below.
If You Receive More Than One Proxy Card

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE AND ETHICS
Composition of the Board of Directors
The current number of directors on our Board of Directors is seven. Under our bylaws, the number of directors on our Board of Directors will not be less than five, nor more than nine, and is fixed, and may be increased or decreased by resolution of the Board of Directors.
Director Nomination Process
Director Qualifications
In evaluating director nominees, the Corporate Governance Committee of our Board of Directors (the “Corporate Governance Committee”) considers the appropriate size of the Board of Directors, as well as the qualities and skills of individual candidates. Factors considered include the following:
A history illustrating personal and professional integrity and ethics;
Independence;
Successful business management experience;
Public company experience, as officer or board member;
Experience in the medical device, healthcare and employee leasing industries; and
Educational background.
The Corporate Governance Committee’s goal is to assemble a Board of Directors that brings the Company a diversity of perspectives and skills derived from the factors considered above. The Corporate Governance Committee also considers candidates with relevant non-business experience and training.
Our Board of Directors believes that it is necessary for each of our directors to possess many qualities and skills. When searching for new candidates, the Corporate Governance Committee considers the evolving needs of the Board of Directors and searches for candidates that fill any current or anticipated future gap. Our Board of Directors also believes that all directors must possess a considerable amount of business management (such as experience as a chief executive or chief financial officer) and educational experience. The Corporate Governance Committee first considers a candidate’s management experience and then considers issues of judgment, background, stature, conflicts of interest, integrity, ethics, and commitment to the goal of maximizing stockholder value when considering director candidates. The Corporate Governance Committee also focuses on issues of diversity, such as diversity of gender, race and national origin, education, professional experience, and differences in viewpoints and skills. The Corporate Governance Committee does not have a formal policy with respect to diversity; however, our Board of Directors and the Corporate Governance Committee believe that it is essential that the directors represent diverse viewpoints. In considering candidates for our Board of Directors, the Corporate Governance Committee considers the entirety of each candidate’s credentials in the context of these standards. With respect to the nomination of continuing directors for re-election, the individual’s contributions to the Board of Directors are also considered.
Other than the foregoing background factors that are considered in selecting director candidates, there are no stated minimum qualifications for director nominees, although the Corporate Governance Committee may also consider such other facts as it may deem are in the best interests of Digirad and our stockholders. The Corporate Governance Committee does believe it appropriate for at least one, and preferably several, members of our Board of Directors to meet the criteria for an “audit committee financial expert” as defined by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and that a majority of the members of our Board of Directors meet the definition of an “independent director” under the listing standards of the NASDAQ Stock Market (“Nasdaq”). At this time, the Corporate Governance Committee also believes it appropriate for our Chief Executive Officer to serve as a member of our Board of Directors.
Identification and Evaluation of Nominees for Directors
The Corporate Governance Committee identifies nominees for director by first evaluating the current members of our Board of Directors willing to continue their service on the Board of Directors. Current members with qualifications and skills that are consistent with the Corporate Governance Committee’s criteria for board service on the Board of Directors and who are willing to continue their service are considered for re-nomination, balancing the value of continuity of service by existing members of our Board of Directors with that of obtaining new perspectives. If any member of our Board of Directors does not wish to continue his or her service or if our Board of Directors decides not to re-nominate a member for re-election, the Corporate Governance Committee identifies the desired skills and experience of a new nominee in light of the criteria above. The Corporate Governance Committee generally polls our Board of Directors and members of management for their recommendations regarding potential new nominees. The Corporate Governance Committee may also review the composition and qualification of the boards of directors of our competitors, and may seek input from our stockholders, industry experts, or analysts. The Corporate Governance Committee reviews the qualifications, experience, and background of the candidates.

4



Final candidates are interviewed by some or all of our independent directors and our Chief Executive Officer. In making its determinations, the Corporate Governance Committee evaluates each individual in the context of our Board of Directors as a whole, with the objective of assembling a group that can best attain success for Digirad and represent stockholder interests through the exercise of sound judgment. After review and deliberation of all feedback and data, the Corporate Governance Committee makes its recommendation to our Board of Directors. Historically, the Corporate Governance Committee has not relied on third-party search firms to identify board candidates. The Corporate Governance Committee may in the future choose to do so in those situations where particular qualifications are required or where existing contacts are not sufficient to identify and acquire an appropriate candidate.
The Corporate Governance Committee does not have a formal policy regarding consideration of director candidate recommendations from our stockholders. Any recommendations received from stockholders have been and will continue to be evaluated in the same manner as potential nominees suggested by members of our Board of Directors or management. Stockholders wishing to suggest a candidate for director should write to our Corporate Secretary at our corporate headquarters. In order for us to effectively consider a recommendation for a nominee for a director position, stockholders must provide the following information in writing: (i) the stockholder’s name and address, as they appear in the Company’s books; (ii) the class and number of shares beneficially owned by the stockholder; (iii) a statement that the stockholder is proposing a candidate for consideration as a director nominee to the Corporate Governance Committee; (iv) the name, age, business address, and residence address of the candidate; (v) a description of all arrangements or understandings between the stockholder and each candidate and any other person or persons (naming such person or persons) pursuant to which the nominations are to be made by the stockholder; (vi) the principal occupation or employment of the candidate; and (vii) any other information relating to such candidate that is required to be disclosed in solicitations of proxies for election of directors, or is otherwise required, in each case pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) (including without limitation such candidate’s written consent to being named in the Proxy Statement, if any, as a nominee and to serving as a director if elected). In order to give the Corporate Governance Committee sufficient time to evaluate a recommended candidate, any such recommendation should be received by our Corporate Secretary at our corporate headquarters not later than the 120th calendar day before the one year anniversary of the date our Proxy Statement was mailed to stockholders in connection with the previous year’s annual meeting of stockholders.
Board Leadership Structure
We believe it is beneficial to separate the roles of Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors to facilitate their differing roles in the leadership of the Company. The role of the chairman is to set the agenda for, and preside over, board meetings, as well as providing advice and assistance to the Chief Executive Officer. In contrast, the Chief Executive Officer is responsible for handling the day-to-day management direction of the Company, serving as a leader to the management team, and formulating corporate strategy.
Jeffrey E. Eberwein is currently the chairman of our Board of Directors and is considered an independent director. Mr. Eberwein holds and has held leadership positions with investment firms and brings to Digirad outside experience and expertise. He also has an educational background in business. Mr. Eberwein has been named by the Corporate Governance Committee as a nominee for re-election to our Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting.
Matthew G. Molchan, our Chief Executive Officer and a member of our Board of Directors, is standing for re-election to the Board of Directors. Going forward, we will continue our philosophy of keeping the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer roles separate on the Board of Directors.
In addition, we believe the working relationship between Messrs. Eberwein and Molchan, on the one hand, and between Mr. Eberwein and the other independent directors, on the other, enhances and facilitates the flow of information between management and our Board of Directors as well as the ability of our independent directors to evaluate and oversee management and its decision-making.
Board Meeting Attendance
Our Board of Directors held fourteen in-person or telephonic meetings during 2018. No director who served as a director during the past year attended fewer than 75% of the aggregate of the total number of meetings of our Board of Directors and of the total number of meetings of committees of our Board of Directors on which he served.
Director Independence
Our Board of Directors has determined that each of the director nominees standing for election, except Mr. Molchan, are independent directors (as currently defined in Rule 5605(a)(2) of the NASDAQ listing rules). In determining the independence of our directors, the Board of Directors considered all transactions in which the Company and any director had any interest, including those discussed under “Related Person Transactions and Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance” below. The independent directors meet as often as necessary to fulfill their responsibilities, including meeting at least twice annually in executive session without the presence of non-independent directors and management.
Director Attendance at the Annual Meeting
Although we do not have a formal policy regarding attendance by members of our Board of Directors at the Annual Meeting, we encourage all of our directors to attend. Two directors attended last year’s annual meeting, either in-person or telephonically.

Board Self-Assessments
Our Board of Directors conducts annual self-evaluations to determine whether it and its committees are functioning effectively. The full Board of Directors reviews the results of the assessments and identifies areas for continued improvement. Our Board of Directors also develops and communicates to management any proposals for improving board functions.
Committees of the Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors currently has four standing committees. The current members of our committees are identified below:

All members of the Corporate Governance Committee are independent directors (as currently defined in Rule 5605(a)(2) of the NASDAQ listing rules).

The Board of Directors’ Role in Risk Oversight
Our Board of Directors, as a whole and also at the committee level, has an active role in managing enterprise risk. The members of our Board of Directors participate in our risk oversight assessment by receiving regular reports from members of senior management and the Company compliance officer appointed by our Board of Directors on areas of material risk to us, including operational, financial, legal and regulatory, and strategic and reputational risks. The Compensation Committee is responsible for overseeing the management of risks relating to our executive compensation plans and arrangements. The Audit Committee oversees management of financial risks, as well as our policies with respect to risk assessment and risk management. The Corporate Governance Committee manages risks associated with the independence of our Board of Directors and potential conflicts of interest. Members of the management team report directly to our Board of Directors or the appropriate committee. The directors then use this information to understand, identify, manage, and mitigate risk. Once a committee has considered the reports from management, the chairperson will report on the matter to our full Board of Directors at the next meeting of the Board of Directors, or sooner if deemed necessary. This enables our Board of Directors and its committees to effectively carry out its risk oversight role.
Communications with our Board of Directors
Any stockholder may send correspondence to our Board of Directors c/o Corporate Secretary, Digirad Corporation, 1048 Industrial Court, Suwanee, Georgia 30024. Our Corporate Secretary will review all correspondence addressed to our Board of Directors, or any individual director, and forward all such communications to our Board of Directors or the appropriate director prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of our Board of Directors following the receipt of the communication, unless the Corporate Secretary decides the communication is more suitably directed to Company management and forwards the communication to Company management. Our Corporate Secretary will summarize all stockholder correspondence directed to our Board of Directors that is not forwarded to our Board of Directors and will make such correspondence available to our Board of Directors for its review at the request of any member of our Board of Directors.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
We have established a Code of Business Ethics and Conduct (the “Ethics Code”) that applies to all our officers, directors, employees and contractors. The Ethics Code contains general guidelines for conducting our business consistent with the highest standards of business ethics and compliance with applicable law, and is intended to qualify as a “code of ethics” within the meaning of Section 406 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Item 406 of Regulation S-K. Day-to-day compliance with the Ethics Code is overseen by the Company compliance officer appointed by our Board of Directors. If we make any amendments to the Ethics Code or grant any waiver from a provision of the Ethics Code to any director or executive officer, we will promptly disclose the nature of the amendment or waiver on the “Investors” section of the Company’s website (www.digirad.com) under the tab “Corporate Governance.”

Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy
Each non-employee director serving on the Board must beneficially own (on a cost basis) an amount of the Company’s common stock or common stock equivalents equal in value to at least 60% of cash compensation received over the prior five years for service as a director of the Company. Until such non-employee director has achieved the level of stock ownership required by our Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy, such non-employee director will be required to retain an amount of common stock equal to 50% of the net shares received as a result of the exercise, vesting or payment of any equity awards granted to the non-employee director by the Company. Non-employee directors are not required to purchase shares in the open market in order to achieve the guideline level of ownership required by this Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy.
Because non-employee directors must retain a percentage of net shares acquired from any Company equity awards until he or she satisfies the Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy, there is no minimum time period required to achieve the guideline level of ownership required by this Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy. Any non-employee director who does not comply with this Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Policy will not be eligible for re-nomination as a director.
Director Term Limits
Our Board of Directors does not have a policy on term limits.

AUDIT COMMITTEE REPORT
The following is the report of the Audit Committee with respect to Digirad’s audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018.
The purpose of the Audit Committee is to assist the Board of Directors in its general oversight of Digirad’s financial reporting, internal controls and audit functions. The Audit Committee does not itself prepare financial statements or perform audits, and its members are not auditors or certifiers of the Company’s financial statements. In fulfilling its oversight responsibility of appointing and reviewing the services performed by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee carefully reviews the policies and procedures for the engagement of the independent registered public accounting firm, including the scope of the audit, audit fees, auditor independence matters and the extent to which the independent registered public accounting firm may be retained to perform non-audit related services.
The Company maintains an auditor independence policy that bans its auditors from performing non-financial consulting services, such as information technology consulting and internal audit services. This policy mandates that the Audit Committee approve the audit and non-audit services and related budget in advance, and that the Audit Committee be provided with quarterly reporting on actual spending. This policy also mandates that the Company may not enter into auditor engagements for non-audit services without the Audit Committee’s express approval. The Audit Committee charter describes in greater detail the full responsibilities of the Audit Committee and is available on our website at www.digirad.com. The Audit Committee is comprised solely of independent directors as defined by Rule 5605(a)(2) of the NASDAQ listing standards.
The Audit Committee met on five occasions in 2018. The Audit Committee met privately in executive session with BDO USA, LLP (“BDO”) as part of each regular meeting and held private meetings with the Chief Financial Officer and other officers of Digirad throughout the year.
In accordance with the Audit Committee charter and the requirements of law, the Audit Committee pre-approves all services to be provided by Digirad’s independent auditors, BDO. Pre-approval is required for audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services.
The Audit Committee has reviewed and discussed the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018 with the Company’s management and BDO, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee has also discussed with BDO the matters required to be discussed by Auditing Standard No. 1301, “Communications with Audit Committees” issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”). The Audit Committee also has received and reviewed the written disclosures and the letter from BDO required by applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding BDO’s communications with the Audit Committee concerning independence, and has discussed with BDO its independence from the Company.
Based on the reviews and discussions referred to above, the Audit Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that the financial statements referred to above be included in the Annual Report for filing with the SEC.

While it is not required to do so, the Audit Committee is submitting to stockholders for ratification the selection of BDO as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2019. Notwithstanding ratification of the selection of BDO to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, the Audit Committee will be under no obligation to select BDO as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
Representatives of BDO will attend the Annual Meeting, will have an opportunity to make a statement if they so desire and will be available to respond to appropriate questions.
During the Company’s three most recent fiscal years, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with BDO regarding either: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that BDO concluded was an important factor considered by us in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a “disagreement” or “reportable event” (within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, respectively).
Principal Accounting Fees
In connection with the audit of the 2018 financial statements, we entered into an engagement agreement with BDO that sets forth the terms by which BDO has performed audit and related professional services for us.
The following tables set forth the aggregate accounting fees paid by us to BDO for the past two fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.

Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Services by Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Audit Committee is granted the authority and responsibility under its charter to pre-approve all audit and non-audit services provided to the Company by its independent registered public accounting firm, including specific approval of internal control and tax-related services. In exercising this responsibility, the Audit Committee considers whether the provision of each professional accounting service is compatible with maintaining the audit firm’s independence.
Pre-approvals are detailed as to the category or professional service and when appropriate are subject to budgetary limits. Company management and the independent registered public accounting firm periodically report to the Audit Committee regarding the scope and fees for professional services provided under the pre-approval.

(1)
The base salary for each executive is initially established through negotiation at the time the executive is hired, taking into account his or her scope of responsibilities, qualifications, experience, prior salary, and competitive salary information within our industry. Year-to-year adjustments to each executive officer’s base salary are determined by an assessment of his or her sustained performance against individual goals, including leadership skills and the achievement of high ethical standards, the individual’s impact on our business and financial results, current salary in relation to the salary range designated for the job, experience, demonstrated potential for advancement, and an assessment against base salaries paid to executives for comparable jobs in the marketplace. Based on the factors discussed above, 2018 base salaries were: Mr. Molchan’s 2018 base salary was set at $415,200, which represented no change from his last adjustment in February 2017; Mr. Shirley’s 2018 base salary was set at $260,000, which represented no change from his last adjustment in February 2017; Mr. DeBeauvernet’s 2018 base salary was set at $228,800, which represented no change from his last adjustment in February 2017. The differences between base and actual salary are due to pay period timing differences at year end.
(2)
Represents full fair value at grant date of restricted stock units representing the right to receive, at settlement, common stock of the Company, granted to our named executive officers, computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, Stock Compensation . The full grant date fair value of an equity award is the maximum value that may be received over the vesting period if all vesting conditions are satisfied, as discussed further below. Thus, there is no assurance that the value, if any, eventually received by our executive officers will correspond to the amount shown. For information regarding assumptions made in connection with this valuation, please see Note 10 to our consolidated financial statements found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 filed on March 1, 2019.
(3)
Included in the stock awards granted in 2017 and 2018 were performance stock units (PSUs), which vest ratably over four years subject to continued employment and achievement of performance conditions for each year as determined by the Compensation Committee. The PSUs will be canceled if such performance conditions are not met. The performance conditions for the 2017 and 2018 PSUs were achievement of 90% of the Board approved budgeted EBITDA, excluding certain predetermined items, for the year ended December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The performance metrics for the 2017 performance period, and a grant date fair value for those tranches of the awards, were established by the Board and Compensation Committee on February 23, 2017. The performance metrics for the 2018 performance period, and a grant date fair value for those tranches of the awards, were established by the Board and Compensation Committee on February 21, 2018. As of the grant date, the Company believed that it was probable that the performance criteria would be met and that each individual would remain employed through the date the grant would become fully vested by its terms, and accordingly, the full value of the awards as of the grant date has been included in the table above in accordance with FASB ASC 718. Assuming the performance criteria for 2018 would be achieved, the grant date fair values of the 2018 PSU awards were $0.1 million, $29 thousand, and $19 thousand for Mr. Molchan, Mr. Shirley, and Mr. DeBeauvernet, respectively. However, the performance conditions for 2018 and 2017 were not met. As such, all of the 2018 and 2017 PSUs, were canceled as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The amount of canceled PSUs in 2018 totaled 53,098 units, 14,000 units, and 9,240 units, for Mr. Molchan, Mr. Shirley, and Mr. DeBeauvernet, respectively.
(4)
Amounts shown for 2018 and 2017 include up to $2,500 matching contributions to the officers’ 401(k) retirement plans and up to $1,000 seed contribution to the executive’s Health Saving Account plans.
(5)
On January 24, 2019, Mr. DeBeauvernet ceased to hold the position of General Manager, Mobile Imaging. Mr. DeBeauvernet will remain a Company employee until March 31, 2019.

As of December 31, 2018, the value of the equity instruments of our named executive officers that would accelerate upon (i) termination without cause within twelve (12) months of a change of control in which stock options and restricted stock units are assumed or replaced by the successor entity, or (ii) a change of control in which the outstanding stock options and restricted stock units are neither assumed or replaced by the successor entity, would be as follows based on the difference between the closing price on the last trading day of the year of $0.57 per share and the exercise price of the respective options, and with regard to restricted stock units, based solely on the closing price on the last trading day of the year of $0.57 :

COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
Cash Retainer Compensation
Non-employee members of our Board of Directors are paid an annual cash retainer for their service, with additional compensation for being the chairperson of the Board, serving on a committee of the Board of Directors and chairing a committee of the Board of Directors. Payments are made quarterly, in advance.
The compensation paid to the members of the Board of Directors is indicated in the chart below:

For the sake of clarity, each of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee, the Corporate Governance Committee, and the Strategic Advisory Committee chairpersons only receive an amount equal to the chairperson fee set forth in the table above and not the chairperson fee plus the member fee.
The single employee director of our Board of Directors, Mr. Molchan, our President and Chief Executive Officer, does not receive additional compensation for his service on our Board of Directors.
Equity Compensation
Equity compensation awards, and the amount of such awards, to non-employee members of our Board are at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of our Board. Historically, such awards have been in the form of RSUs and the Compensation Committee generally set the amount of those awards at a fair market value equal to the annual cash retainer received by non-employee members of our Board. However, given the volatility of the Company’s stock, the Compensation Committee has more recently determined to fix the amount of RSU awards to non-employee members of our Board at 12,500 RSUs that vest annually. We believe that equity compensation helps to further align the interests of our directors with those of our stockholders because the value of directors’ share ownership will rise and fall with that of our other stockholders.

PROPOSAL 3: ADVISORY (NON-BINDING) STOCKHOLDER APPROVAL OF NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICER COMPENSATION
Pursuant to Section 14A of the Exchange Act, we are asking our stockholders to provide advisory (non-binding) approval of the compensation of our named executive officers, as we have described it in the “Executive Compensation” section of this Proxy Statement. Although this vote, commonly referred to as “say-on-pay,” is advisory, and not binding on our Company, it will provide information to our management and the Compensation Committee regarding investor opinion about our executive compensation practices and policies, which the Compensation Committee will be able to consider when determining executive compensation for the remainder of 2019 and beyond.
We are asking our stockholders to indicate their support for the compensation of our named executive officers as described in this Proxy Statement by voting in favor of the following resolution:
“RESOLVED, that the holders of shares of common stock approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of the Company’s executives named in the Summary Compensation Table, as disclosed in this Proxy Statement, pursuant to the compensation disclosure rules of the SEC. However, as this is an advisory vote, the result will not be binding on our Board of Directors or the Company.”
OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” THE ADVISORY (NON-BINDING) APPROVAL OF THE COMPENSATION OF THE COMPANY’S NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS.

On March 8, 2019, our Board of Directors unanimously approved, subject to stockholder approval, an amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of our outstanding common stock by combining outstanding shares of common stock into a lesser number of outstanding shares of common stock by a ratio of not less than 1-for-5 and not more than 1-for-10 at any time within 12 months following the date of stockholder approval of this Proposal 4, with the exact ratio to be set within this range by our Board of Directors at its sole discretion, and a reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock to 30 million shares authorized (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Board of Directors may alternatively elect to abandon such proposed amendment and not effect the Reverse Stock Split authorized by stockholders, in its sole discretion.
Upon the effectiveness of the amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation effecting the Reverse Stock Split: (a) the outstanding shares of our common stock will be reclassified and combined into a lesser number of shares such that one share of our common stock will be issued for a specified number of shares in accordance with the ratio for the Reverse Stock Split selected by our Board of Directors and (b) there will be reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock under our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to 30 million shares authorized.
If this Reverse Stock Split Proposal is approved by our stockholders as proposed, our Board of Directors would have the sole discretion to effect the amendment and Reverse Stock Split at any time within 12 months following the date of such stockholder approval, and to fix the specific ratio for the Reverse Stock Split, provided that the ratio would be not less than 1-for-5 and not more than 1-for-10. Although this Reverse Stock Split Proposal gives the Board of Directors 12 months following stockholder approval to implement the Reverse Stock Split, if we implement the Reverse Stock Split to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by the July 8, 2019 deadline, as described below under the heading “Reasons for the Reverse Stock Split,” we must complete the Reverse Split no later than ten business days prior to such deadline. We believe that enabling our Board of Directors to fix the specific ratio of the Reverse Stock Split within the stated range will provide us with the flexibility to implement the Reverse Stock Split in a manner designed to maximize the anticipated benefits for our stockholders. The determination of the ratio of the Reverse Stock Split will be based on a number of factors described below under the heading “Criteria to Be Used for Decision to Apply the Reverse Stock Split.”
The Reverse Stock Split (which includes the reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock), if approved by our stockholders, would become effective at the time and date set forth in a certificate of amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The form of the proposed certificate of amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split is attached as Appendix A to this proxy statement. Any amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split will include the Reverse Stock Split ratio fixed by our Board of Directors, within the range approved by our stockholders.
The exact timing of the amendment will be determined by our Board of Directors based on its evaluation as to when such action will be the most advantageous to us and our stockholders, but the amendment will not occur after 12 months following the date our stockholders approve the Reverse Stock Split. In addition, our Board of Directors reserves the right, notwithstanding stockholder approval and without further action by our stockholders, to abandon the amendment and the Reverse Stock Split if, at any time prior to the effectiveness of the filing of the certificate of amendment with the Secretary of State effecting the Reverse Stock Split, our Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, determines that it is no longer in our best interest and the best interests of our stockholders to proceed with the Reverse Stock Split.
The primary purpose for effecting the Reverse Stock Split is to increase the per share trading price of our common stock so as to:
maintain the listing of our common stock on Nasdaq Global Market and avoid a delisting of our common stock from Nasdaq Global Market;
broaden the pool of investors that may be interested in investing in the Company by attracting new investors who would prefer not to invest in shares that trade at lower share prices; and
make our common stock a more attractive investment to institutional investors.
In evaluating the Reverse Stock Split, our Board of Directors has taken, and will take, into consideration negative factors associated with reverse stock splits. These factors include the negative perception of reverse stock splits held by many investors, analysts and other stock market participants, as well as the fact that the stock price of some companies that have effected reverse stock splits has subsequently declined back to pre-reverse stock split levels. In approving the amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split, our Board of Directors determined that these potential negative factors were outweighed by the potential benefits of the Reverse Stock Split.

Criteria to Be Used for Decision to Apply the Reverse Stock Split
If our stockholders approve the Reverse Stock Split, our Board of Directors will be authorized to proceed with the Reverse Stock Split. The exact ratio of the Reverse Stock Split, within the 1-for-5 to 1-for-10 range, would be determined by our Board of Directors and publicly announced by us prior to the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split. In determining whether to proceed with the reverse split and setting the appropriate ratio for the Reverse Stock Split, our Board of Directors will consider, among other things, factors such as:
Nasdaq’s minimum price per share requirements;
the historical trading prices and trading volume of our common stock;
the number of shares of our common stock outstanding;
the then-prevailing and expected trading prices and trading volume of our common stock and the anticipated impact of the Reverse Stock Split on the trading market for our common stock;
the anticipated impact of a particular ratio on our ability to reduce administrative and transactional costs;
business developments affecting us; and
prevailing general market and economic conditions.
Reasons for the Reverse Stock Split
Our Board of Directors authorized the Reverse Stock Split with the primary intent of increasing the price of our common stock in order to meet the price criteria for continued listing on Nasdaq Global Market, as explained below. Our common stock is publicly traded and listed on the Nasdaq Global Market under the symbol “DRAD.” Our Board of Directors believes that, in addition to increasing the price of our common stock to meet the price criteria for continued listing on Nasdaq Global Market, the Reverse Stock Split would also make our common stock more attractive to a broader range of institutional and other investors. Accordingly, for these and other reasons discussed below, we believe that effecting the Reverse Stock Split is in our and our stockholders’ best interests.
On January 8, 2019, we received a deficiency letter from the Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Department notifying us that, for the prior thirty consecutive business days, the closing bid price for our common stock had closed below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5450(a)(1) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). In accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules, we have been given 180 calendar days, or until July 8, 2019, to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement. If we do not regain compliance by July 8, 2019, we may transfer from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market and may be eligible for an additional compliance period of 180 days. To qualify for the additional compliance period, we will have to: (i) submit a transfer application and related application fees; (ii) meet the continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held shares and all other initial listing standards of the Nasdaq Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement); and (iii) provide written notice to Nasdaq of our intention to cure the deficiency during the additional 180-day compliance period by effecting a reverse stock split if necessary. If we do not qualify for an additional compliance period, or should we determine not to submit a transfer application or make the required representation, or if Nasdaq concludes that we will not be able to cure the deficiency, Nasdaq will provide written notice to us that our common stock will be subject to delisting.
If we implement a reverse stock split in order to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement, the Reverse Stock Split must be completed no later than ten business days prior to July 8, 2019. If we do not regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement by July 8, 2019 and we are not eligible for an additional compliance period at that time, the staff will provide written notification to us that our common stock will be subject to delisting. At that time, we may appeal the staff’s decision to a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel (the “Panel”). We would remain listed on the Nasdaq Global Market pending the Panel’s decision. There can be no assurance that, if we do appeal a subsequent delisting determination by the staff to the Panel, that such an appeal would be successful.
If we are not able to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement or do not transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market, our common stock could be traded on an electronic bulletin board established for unlisted securities such as the Pink Sheets or the OTC Bulletin Board. In such event, it would become more difficult to dispose of, or obtain accurate price quotations for, our common stock, and there would likely be a reduction in our coverage by security analysts and the news media, which could cause the price of our common stock to decline further. Additionally, the sale or purchase of our common stock would likely be made more difficult and the trading volume and liquidity of our common stock would likely decline. A delisting from the Nasdaq would also result in negative publicity and would negatively impact our ability to raise capital in the future.

27



In addition, our Board of Directors believes that an increased stock price could encourage investor interest and improve the marketability of our common stock to a broader range of investors, and thus enhance our liquidity. Because of the trading volatility often associated with low-priced stocks, many brokerage firms and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers. Additionally, because brokers’ commissions on low-priced stocks generally represent a higher percentage of the stock price than commissions on higher-priced stock, the current share price of our common stock may result in an investor paying transaction costs that represent a higher percentage of total share value than would be the case if our share price were higher.
Although we expect that the Reverse Stock Split will result in an increase in the market price of our common stock, the Reverse Stock Split may not result in a permanent increase in the market price of our common stock, which would be dependent on many factors, including general economic, market and industry conditions and other factors detailed from time to time in the reports we file with the SEC.
Certain Risks Associated with the Reverse Stock Split
There can be no assurance that the total market capitalization of our common stock after the implementation of the Reverse Stock Split will be equal to or greater than the total market capitalization before the Reverse Stock Split or that the per share market price of our common stock following the Reverse Stock Split will increase in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of our common stock outstanding in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Also, we cannot assure you that the Reverse Stock Split would lead to a sustained increase in the trading price of our common stock. The trading price of our common stock may change due to a variety of other factors, including our ability to successfully accomplish our business goals, market conditions and the market perception of our business. You should also keep in mind that the implementation of a reverse stock split does not have an effect on the actual or intrinsic value of our business or a stockholder’s proportional ownership in the Company. However, should the overall value of our common stock decline after the proposed Reverse Stock Split, then the actual or intrinsic value of the shares of our common stock held by you will also proportionately decrease as a result of the overall decline in value.
Further, the liquidity of our common stock may be harmed by the proposed Reverse Stock Split given the reduced number of shares that would be outstanding after the Reverse Stock Split, particularly if the expected increase in stock price as a result of the Reverse Stock Split is not sustained. In addition, the proposed Reverse Stock Split may increase the number of stockholders who own odd lots (less than 100 shares) of our common stock, creating the potential for such stockholders to experience an increase in the cost of selling their shares and greater difficulty effecting sales. If we effect the Reverse Stock Split, the resulting per-share stock price may nevertheless fail to attract institutional investors and may not satisfy the investing guidelines of such investors and, consequently, the trading liquidity of our common stock may not improve.
While our Board of Directors has proposed the Reverse Stock Split to bring the price of our common stock back above $1.00 per share in order to meet the requirements for the continued listing of our common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market, there is no guarantee that the price of our common stock will not decrease in the future, or that our common stock will remain in compliance with Nasdaq listing standards. There can be no guarantee that the closing bid price of our common stock will remain at or above $1.00 for 10 consecutive business days, whether following the Reverse Stock Split or otherwise, which is required to cure our current Nasdaq listing standard deficiency.
The Reverse Stock Split may result in or contribute towards an ownership change under Section 382 of the Code. If the Company were to undergo an ownership change under Section 382 of the Code, the Company’s ability to use its net operating loss carryovers incurred prior to the ownership change against income arising after the ownership change will be significantly limited. In general, an “ownership change” under Section 382 of the Code occurs with respect to the Company if, over a rolling three-year period, the Company’s “5-percent shareholders” increase their aggregate stock ownership by more than 50 percentage points over their lowest stock ownership during the rolling three-year period. Although we do not expect the Reverse Stock Split to result in an ownership change with respect to the Company, because we do not know the number of Company shareholders that may become “5-percent shareholders” as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, it is uncertain at this time whether the Reverse Stock Split will result in an ownership change or the extent to which the Reverse Stock Split may contribute towards an ownership change over the rolling three year period following the Reverse Stock Split.

28



Effect of the Reverse Stock Split
If the Reverse Stock Split Proposal is approved and our Board of Directors elects to effect the Reverse Stock Split, the number of outstanding shares of common stock will be reduced in proportion to the ratio of the split chosen by our Board of Directors and there will be reduction of the number of authorized shares of common stock under our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to 30 million shares authorized. As of the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, we would also adjust and proportionately decrease the number of shares of our common stock reserved for issuance upon exercise of, and adjust and proportionately increase the exercise price of, all options and warrants and other rights to acquire our common stock. In addition, as of the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, we would adjust and proportionately decrease the total number of shares of our common stock that may be the subject of the future grants under our equity plans, as described further below under the heading “ Effects of the Reverse Stock Split on Outstanding Equity Awards.”
The Reverse Stock Split would be effected simultaneously for all outstanding shares of our common stock. The Reverse Stock Split would affect all of our stockholders uniformly and would not change any stockholder’s percentage ownership interest in the Company, except for minor adjustment due to the additional net share fraction that will be issued as a result of the treatment of fractional shares. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, the Company will issue one full share of the post-Reverse Stock Split Common Stock to any stockholder who would have been entitled to receive a fractional share as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. The Reverse Stock Split would not change the terms of our common stock. The Reverse Stock Split is not intended as, and would not have the effect of, a “going private transaction” covered by Rule 13e-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Following the Reverse Stock Split, we would continue to be subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act.
Assuming Reverse Stock Split ratios of 1-for-5 and 1-for-10, which reflect the low end and high end of the range that our stockholders are being asked to approve, the following table sets forth (a) the number of shares of our common stock that would be issued and outstanding, (b) the number of shares of our common stock that would be reserved to be issued upon exercise of outstanding options, warrants and rights, (c) the number of shares of our common stock that would be reserved for future issuance under our equity compensation plans (excluding shares reflected in the preceding clause (b)) and (d) the number of shares of common stock authorized under the Company’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation, each giving effect to the Reverse Stock Split and based on securities outstanding, reserved, or authorized (as applicable) as of March 13, 2019 .

* Does not include adjustments for fractional shares.
If our Board of Directors does not implement the Reverse Stock Split within 12 months following the date of stockholder approval of this Proposal 4, the authority granted in this proposal to implement the Reverse Stock Split would terminate.
Our directors and executive officers have no substantial interests, directly or indirectly, in the matters set forth in the Reverse Split Proposal, except to the extent of their ownership in shares of our common stock and securities convertible or exercisable for our common stock, which shares and securities would be subject to the same proportionate adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Reverse Stock Split as all other outstanding shares of our common stock and securities convertible into or exercisable for our common stock.
Maintenance of Ownership Percentage . If the Reverse Stock Split is approved and effected, each stockholder will own a reduced number of shares of common stock. This would affect all of our stockholders uniformly and would not affect any stockholder’s percentage ownership in the Company, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split results in a stockholder owning a fractional share, as described below. The number of stockholders of record would not be affected by the Reverse Stock Split.

29



Voting Rights . Proportionate voting rights and other rights of the holders of our common stock would not be affected by the Reverse Stock Split, subject to the limitations and qualifications set forth in this discussion and to the note below regarding the receipt of an additional fraction of a share. For example, a holder of 1% of the voting power of the outstanding shares of our common stock immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split would continue to hold 1% of the voting power of the outstanding shares of common stock after the Reverse Stock Split, regardless of the exchange ratio chosen by the Board of Directors.
Effects of the Reverse Stock Split on Outstanding Equity Awards . If the Reverse Stock Split is effected, the terms of equity awards under the Company’s incentive plans, including the per share exercise price of options and the number of shares issuable under outstanding awards, will be converted on the Effective Date of the Reverse Stock Split in proportion to the reverse split ratio of the Reverse Stock Split (subject to adjustment for fractional interests). The Compensation Committee must approve such adjustments, and its determination as to what adjustments shall be made and the extent thereof shall be final, binding and conclusive on all participants of the Company’s incentive plans. In addition, the total number of shares of common stock that may be the subject of future grants under the Company’s incentive plans will be adjusted and proportionately decreased as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. For purposes of illustration, if the Reverse Stock Split is effected at a ratio of 1-for-10, the number of remaining shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the Company’s incentive plans after the Reverse Stock Split would be approximately 206,697 . Additionally, a pre-Reverse Stock Split of unvested restricted stock unit representing the right to receive 20,000 shares of common stock upon vesting would be converted into a post-Reverse Stock Split restricted stock unit representing the right to receive 2,000 shares of common stock upon vesting. As of the Record Date, the Company had 2,066,965 remaining shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the Company’s equity incentive plans.
Effects of the Reduction of Authorized Common Stock. We are currently authorized under our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to issue up to a total of 90,000,000 shares of capital stock, comprised of 80,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value of $0.0001 per share (the “preferred stock”). If the Reverse Stock Split is approved and effected, it will reduce the total number of shares of common stock that we are authorized to issue from 80,000,000 shares of common stock to 30,000,000 shares authorized. The decrease in the number of authorized shares of common stock would result in fewer shares of authorized but unissued common stock being available for future issuance for various purposes, including raising capital or making acquisitions. However, we believe that if the Reverse Stock Split is approved and effected, the amount of authorized but unissued shares of common stock and preferred stock will be sufficient for our future needs. The Reverse Stock Split will not reduce the number of authorized shares of preferred stock or otherwise have any impact on the preferred stock.
Procedure for Effecting the Reverse Stock Split
If our stockholders approve the Reverse Stock Split, and if our Board of Directors still believes that a Reverse Stock Split is in the best interests of us and our stockholders, our Board of Directors will determine the ratio of the Reverse Stock Split to be implemented and we will publicly announce the ratio selected by our Board of Directors and file the certificate of amendment effecting the Reverse Stock Split with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. The form of the proposed certificate of amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split is attached as Appendix A to this proxy statement. Any amendment to our Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split will include the Reverse Stock Split ratio fixed by our Board of Directors, within the range approved by our stockholders.
The combination of, and reduction in, the number of shares of our outstanding common stock as a result of the Reverse Stock Split will occur automatically and without any action on the part of our stockholders at the date and time set forth in the amendment to the Restated Certificate of Incorporation to effect the Reverse Stock Split following filing with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware (the “Effective Time”). As soon as practicable after the Effective Time, our transfer agent, American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, acting as our “exchange agent” for purposes of implementing the exchange of stock certificates, will mail each stockholder of record a transmittal form accompanied by instructions specifying other details of the exchange. Upon receipt of the transmittal form, each stockholder should surrender the certificates representing our common stock prior to the Reverse Stock Split in accordance with the applicable instructions. Each holder who surrenders certificates will receive new certificates representing the whole number of shares of our common stock that he or she holds as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. New certificates will not be issued to a stockholder until the stockholder has surrendered his or her outstanding certificate(s) and submitted with the properly completed and executed transmittal form to the exchange agent. If your shares are held in street name at a brokerage firm or financial institution, we intend to treat you in the same manner as registered stockholders whose shares are registered in their names. Banks, brokers or other nominees will be instructed to implement the exchange of shares required by the combination resulting from the Reverse Stock Split for their beneficial holders holding common stock in street name. However, these banks, brokers or other nominees may have different procedures than registered stockholders for processing substitution of certificates, or book entries, representing the former number shares of common stock for certificates, or book entries, representing the reduced number of shares resulting from the combination. If you hold your shares with a bank, broker or other nominee and if you have any questions in this regard, we encourage you to contact your bank, broker or nominee.

30



Any stockholder whose stock certificate has been lost, destroyed or stolen will be entitled to a new stock certificate only after complying with the requirements that we and our transfer agent customarily apply in connection with replacing lost, stolen or destroyed stock certificates.
No service charges, brokerage commissions or transfer taxes shall be payable by any holder of any old certificate, except that if any new certificate is to be issued in a name other than that in which the old stock certificate(s) are registered, it will be a condition of such issuance that (i) the person requesting such issuance must pay to us any applicable transfer taxes or establish to our satisfaction that such taxes have been paid or are not payable, (ii) the transfer complies with all applicable federal and state securities laws and (iii) the surrendered stock certificate is properly endorsed and otherwise in proper form for transfer.
STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD NOT DESTROY ANY STOCK CERTIFICATES AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT THEIR STOCK CERTIFICATES UNTIL THEY RECEIVE A TRANSMITTAL FORM FROM OUR TRANSFER AGENT.
Fractional Shares
No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, the Company will issue one full share of the post-Reverse Stock Split common stock to any stockholder who would have been entitled to receive a fractional share of common stock as a result of the Reverse Stock Split. Each holder of common stock will hold the same percentage of the outstanding common stock immediately following the Reverse Stock Split as that stockholder did immediately prior to the Reverse Stock Split, except for minor adjustment due to the additional net share fraction that will need to be issued as a result of the treatment of fractional shares.
No Appraisal Rights
No action is proposed herein for which the laws of the State of Delaware, or our Restated Certificate of Incorporation or bylaws, provide a right to our stockholders to dissent and obtain appraisal of, or payment for, such stockholders’ capital stock.
Accounting Matters
The Reverse Stock Split would not affect the par value of our common stock per share, which would remain $0.0001 par value per share, while the number of outstanding shares of common stock would decrease in accordance with the Reverse Stock Split ratio selected by our Board of Directors. As a result, as of the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split, the stated capital attributable to common stock on our balance sheet would decrease and the additional paid-in capital account on our balance sheet would increase by an offsetting amount. Following the Reverse Stock Split, reported per share net income or loss would be higher because there would be fewer shares of common stock outstanding and we would adjust historical per share amounts set forth in our future financial statements. The common stock held in treasury will be reduced in proportion to the Reverse Stock Split ratio selected by our Board of Directors.
Federal Income Tax Consequences
The following discussion is a summary of the material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split to us and to U.S. Holders (as defined below) that hold shares of our common stock as capital assets (i.e., for investment) for U.S. federal income tax purposes. This discussion is based upon current U.S. tax law, which is subject to change, possibly with retroactive effect, and differing interpretations. Any such change may cause the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split to vary substantially from the consequences summarized below. We have not sought and will not seek any rulings from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) regarding the matters discussed below and there can be no assurance the IRS or a court will not take a contrary position to that discussed below regarding the tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split.
For purposes of this discussion, a “U.S. Holder” is a beneficial owner of our common stock that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, is or is treated as (i) an individual who is a citizen or resident of the United States; (ii) a corporation (or any other entity or arrangement treated as a corporation) created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof, or the District of Columbia; (iii) an estate, the income of which is subject to U.S. federal income tax regardless of its source; or (iv) a trust if (1) its administration is subject to the primary supervision of a court within the United States and all of its substantial decisions are subject to the control of one or more “United States persons” (within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(30) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code” )), or (2) it has a valid election in effect under applicable U.S. Treasury regulations to be treated as a United States person.

31



This summary does not address all aspects of U.S. federal income taxation that may be relevant to U.S. Holders in light of their particular circumstances or to stockholders who may be subject to special tax treatment under the Code, including, without limitation, dealers in securities, commodities or foreign currency, persons who are treated as non-U.S. persons for U.S. federal income tax purposes, certain former citizens or long-term residents of the United States, insurance companies, tax-exempt organizations, banks, financial institutions, small business investment companies, regulated investment companies, real estate investment trusts, retirement plans, persons whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar, traders that mark-to-market their securities or persons who hold their shares of our common stock as part of a hedge, straddle, conversion or other risk reduction transaction. If a partnership (or other entity treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes) is the beneficial owner of our common stock, the U.S. federal income tax treatment of the partnership (or other entity treated as a partnership) and a partner in the partnership will generally depend on the status of the partner and the activities of such partnership. Accordingly, partnerships (and other entities treated as partnerships for U.S. federal income tax purposes) holding our common stock and the partners in such entities should consult their own tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split to them.
The state and local tax consequences, alternative minimum tax consequences, non-U.S. tax consequences and U.S. estate and gift tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split are not discussed herein and may vary as to each U.S. Holder. Furthermore, the following discussion does not address any tax consequences of transactions effectuated before, after or at the same time as the Reverse Stock Split, whether or not they are in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. This discussion should not be considered as tax or investment advice, and the tax consequences of the Reverse Stock Split may not be the same for all stockholders. U.S. Holders should consult their own tax advisors to understand their individual federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences.
Tax Consequences to the Company. We believe that the Reverse Stock Split should constitute a reorganization under Section 368(a) (1)(E) of the Code. Accordingly, we should not recognize taxable income, gain or loss in connection with the Reverse Stock Split.
Tax Consequences to U.S. Holders.   Subject to the discussion below regarding the receipt of a fractional share, a U.S. Holder generally should not recognize gain or loss as a result of the Reverse Stock Split for U.S. federal income tax purposes. A U.S. Holder’s aggregate adjusted tax basis in the shares of our common stock received pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split should equal the aggregate adjusted tax basis of the shares of our common stock exchanged therefor (increased by the amount of gain or income recognized, if any, attributable to the rounding up of a fractional share, as discussed below). The U.S. Holder’s holding period in the shares of our common stock received pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split should include the holding period in the shares of our common stock exchanged therefor (except with respect to any fractional share of our common stock received, as discussed below). U.S. Treasury Regulations provide detailed rules for allocating the tax basis and holding period of shares of common stock surrendered in a recapitalization to shares received in such recapitalization. A U.S. Holder that acquired shares of our common stock on different dates and at different prices should consult their tax advisors regarding the allocation of the tax basis and holding period from shares of common stock surrendered in the Reverse Stock Split to shares received in the Reverse Stock Split.
Each fractional share issued pursuant to the Reverse Stock Split that is attributable to the rounding up of fractional shares to the nearest whole number of shares may be treated for U.S. federal income tax purposes as a disproportionate distribution. If so treated, a U.S. Holder that receives a fractional share of our common stock attributable to the rounding up of a fractional share to the nearest whole number of shares should recognize dividend income in an amount equal to the fair market value of such fractional share to the extent of the Company’s current or accumulated earnings and profits, and to the extent that any portion of the distribution exceeds such current or accumulated earnings and profits, such portion will be treated as a return of tax basis and thereafter as gain from the sale or exchange of property. A U.S. Holder’s holding period in any such fractional share commences on the effective date of the Reverse Stock Split.
The U.S. federal income tax discussion set forth above does not discuss all aspects of U.S. federal income taxation that may be relevant to a particular stockholder in light of such stockholder’s circumstances and income tax situation. Accordingly, we urge you to consult with your own tax advisor with respect to all of the potential U.S. federal, state, local and foreign tax consequences to you of the Reverse Stock Split.
OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS UNANIMOUSLY RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” THE AMENDMENT TO THE RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO EFFECT THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT, WHICH INCLUDES THE REDUCTION IN AUTHORIZED SHARES OF COMMON STOCK.

Under the terms of the Subscription Agreement, we invested $1.0 million USD in exchange for 71,429 shares of Perma-Fix Medical. Pursuant to the Supply Agreement, should Perma-Fix Medical successfully complete development of the new Tc-99m resin, Perma-Fix Medical will supply us or our preferred nuclear pharmacy supplier with Tc-99m at a preferred rate and we will purchase agreed upon quantities of such Tc-99m for our nuclear imaging operations, either directly or in conjunction with our preferred nuclear pharmacy supplier. In addition, in connection with the Subscription Agreement, the Company’s President and CEO was appointed to the Supervisory Board of Perma-Fix Medical.
Jeffrey E. Eberwein, the Chairman of our board of directors and the Chairman of the board of directors of ATRM, owns approximately 17.4% of the outstanding common stock of ATRM. Mr. Eberwein is also the Chief Executive Officer of Lone Star Value Management, LLC, which is the investment manager of Lone Star Value Investors, LP (“LSVI”). LSVI owns 222,577 shares of ATRM’s 10.00% Series B Cumulative Preferred Stock (the “Series B Stock”) and another 374,562 shares of Series B Stock are owned directly by Lone Star Value Co-Invest I, LP (“LSV Co-Invest I”). Through these relationships and other relationships with affiliated entities, Mr. Eberwein may be deemed the beneficial owner of the securities owned by LSVI and LSV Co-Invest I. Mr. Eberwein disclaims beneficial ownership of Series B Stock, except to the extent of his pecuniary interest therein. All transactions between the Company and ATRM have been reviewed and approved by a special committee composed of independent directors of the Company.
On September 10, 2018, we announced that our Board of Directors approved the conversion of the Company into a diversified holding company, and the potential acquisition of ATRM as an initial “kick-off” transaction (the “ATRM Acquisition”). ATRM is a modular building company consisting of two divisions, KBS Builders and EdgeBuilder. The KBS division manufactures and distributes modular housing units. EdgeBuilder manufactures engineered wood products used in modular construction, as well as distributes building materials through its Glenbrook unit. Both divisions serve the residential and commercial segments of the market. As currently contemplated by the non-binding letter of intent with ATRM (the “LOI”), ATRM stockholders would receive consideration consisting of 0.4 shares of the Company’s common stock for each share of outstanding ATRM common stock we acquire in the ATRM Acquisition. The issuance of Digirad common stock in connection with the ATRM Acquisition is expected to increase the number of shares of outstanding our common stock by less than 5%. Proceeding with the ATRM Acquisition is subject to, among other things, ATRM becoming current with its filings with the SEC and the negotiation and execution of definitive documentation. The ATRM Acquisition has been approved by a special committee of independent directors of ATRM. The final terms of the ATRM Acquisition are subject to change depending on the outcome of our due diligence investigation and may differ from those reflected in the LOI, and there can be no assurance that we will complete the ATRM Acquisition or the conversion into a diversified holding company.
On December 14, 2018, Digirad and ATRM, entered into a joint venture and formed Star Procurement, LLC (“Star Procurement”), with Digirad and ATRM each holding a 50% interest. The purpose of the joint venture is to provide the service of purchasing and selling building materials and related goods to KBS Builders, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of ATRM with which Star Procurement entered into a Services Agreement on January 2, 2019. In accordance with the terms of the Star Procurement Limited Liability Company Agreement, Digirad made a $1.0 million capital contribution to the joint venture, which was made in January 2019.
On December 14, 2018, the Company received an unsecured promissory note from ATRM in the principal amount of $0.3 million (the “ATRM Note”) in exchange for a loan to ATRM in the same amount. The ATRM Note bears interest at 10.0% per annum for the first 12 months of its term, and at 12.0% per annum for the remaining 12 months. All unpaid principal and interest is due on December 14, 2020. ATRM may prepay the note at any time after a specified amount of advance notice to the Company. The ATRM Note provides for customary events of default, the occurrence of any of which may result in the principal and unpaid interest then outstanding becoming immediately due and payable.
We believe that all of the transactions described above were on terms at least as favorable to us as they would have been had we entered into those transactions with unaffiliated third parties.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires Digirad’s directors, executive officers and holders of more than 10% of its common stock to file with the SEC reports (typically, Forms 3, 4, and/or 5) regarding their ownership and changes in ownership of Digirad’s securities. Based solely on a review of Forms 3, 4, and 5 and amendments thereto furnished to Digirad, we believe that during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, Digirad’s directors and officers have complied with all Section 16(a) filing requirements other than the inadvertent late filing by Mr. Molchan on September 7, 2018, reporting one transaction that occurred on August 31, 2018.

STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS
Stockholder proposals intended for inclusion in next year’s proxy statement pursuant to Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Exchange Act must be directed to the Corporate Secretary, Digirad Corporation, 1048 Industrial Court, Suwanee, Georgia 30024 and must be received by November 27, 2019 . In order for proposals of stockholders made outside of Rule 14a-8 promulgated under the Exchange Act to be considered “timely” within the meaning of Rule 14a-4(c) promulgated under the Exchange Act, such proposals must be received by the Corporate Secretary at the above address by November 27, 2019 , and must also be submitted in accordance with the requirements of our bylaws.
ANNUAL REPORT
We are concurrently sending all of our stockholders of record as of the Record Date, a copy of our Annual Report (without exhibits) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. The Annual Report contains Digirad’s certified consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2018, including that of the Digirad’s subsidiaries.
A copy of our Annual Report will also be furnished without charge upon receipt of a written request identifying the person so requesting a report as a stockholder of Digirad at such date to any person who was a beneficial owner of our common stock on the Record Date. Requests should be directed to Investor Relations, Digirad Corporation, 1048 Industrial Court, Suwanee, Georgia 30024.
HOUSEHOLDING OF PROXY MATERIALS
The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for proxy statements and annual reports with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single proxy statement addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as “householding,” potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.
A number of brokers with account holders who are Digirad stockholders may be “householding” our proxy materials. In that event, a single proxy statement will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that they will be “householding” communications to your address, “householding” will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in “householding” and would prefer to receive a separate proxy statement and annual report, please notify your broker. Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the proxy statement at their address and would like to request “householding” of their communications should contact their broker.
GENERAL
Cost of Solicitation
We have retained InvestorCom LLC to assist us in the solicitation of proxies for a fee of up to $7,500 plus out-of-pocket expenses. Our expenses related to the solicitation of proxies from stockholders this year are not anticipated to be significant, with the total cost expected to be approximately $30,000. These solicitation costs are expected to include primarily the fee payable to our proxy solicitor. To date, we have incurred approximately $8,500 of these solicitation costs.

Other Matters
The Board of Directors is not aware of any other matters that are to be presented for action at the Annual Meeting. However, if any other matters properly come before the Annual Meeting, your shares of common stock will be voted in accordance with the best judgment of the designated proxy holders (who are identified on the enclosed proxy card).
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT PROXIES BE RETURNED PROMPTLY. YOUR VOTE IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY OR HOW FEW SHARES YOU OWN. WE URGE YOU TO SIGN, DATE AND RETURN THE ACCOMPANYING WHITE PROXY CARD PROMPTLY. A POSTAGE-PAID ENVELOPE IS ENCLOSED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.

Appendix A
PROPOSED FORM OF AMENDMENT TO RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION TO IMPLEMENT
THE REVERSE STOCK SPLIT (INCLUDING REDUCTION IN AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK)
CERTIFICATE OF AMENDMENT
OF THE
RESTATED CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION
OF
DIGIRAD CORPORATION
Digirad Corporation, a corporation organized and existing under and by virtue of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “ Corporation ”),
DOES HEREBY CERTIFY:
FIRST: That resolutions were duly adopted by the Board of Directors of the Corporation setting forth this proposed Amendment to the Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation and declaring said Amendment to be advisable and recommended for approval by the stockholders of the Corporation.
SECOND: This Amendment to the Restated Certificate of Incorporation amends and restates Section (A) CLASSES OF STOCK. of ARTICLE IV to the Restated Certificate of Incorporation to read in its entirety as follows:
“(A)      CLASSES OF STOCK. The Corporation is authorized to issue two classes of stock, denominated “Common Stock” and “Preferred Stock.” The Common Stock shall have a par value of $0.0001 per share and the Preferred Stock shall have a par value of $0.0001 per share. The total number of shares of Common Stock which the Corporation is authorized to issue is Thirty Million (30,000,000), and the total number of shares of Preferred Stock which the Corporation is authorized to issue is Ten Million (10,000,000), which shares of Preferred Stock shall be undesignated as to series.
Upon this Certificate of Amendment becoming effective pursuant to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “ Effective Time ”), every [YY] 1 shares of the Corporation’s Common Stock issued and outstanding or held by the Corporation in treasury stock shall, automatically and without any action on the part of the respective holders thereof, be combined and converted into one share of Common Stock without increasing or decreasing the par value of each share of Common Stock (the “ Reverse Split ”); provided, however , no fractional shares of Common Stock shall be issued in connection with the Reverse Split, and instead, the Corporation shall issue one full share of post-Reverse Split Common Stock to any stockholder who would have been entitled to receive a fractional share of Common Stock as a result of the Reverse Split. Each certificate that immediately prior to the Effective Time represented shares of Common Stock (“ Old Certificates ”), shall thereafter represent that number of shares of post-Reverse Split Common Stock into which the shares of Common Stock represented by the Old Certificate shall have been combined, subject to the elimination of fractional shares as described above. The Reverse Split shall occur whether or not the certificates representing such shares of Common Stock are surrendered to the Corporation or its transfer agent.”
THIRD: The foregoing amendment shall be effective as of _______ p.m. Eastern Time on __________, 20__.


1 References to “YY” is to a number no less than 5 and no greater than 10 as selected by the Board of Directors.



FOURTH: That, pursuant to resolution of its Board of Directors, an annual meeting of the stockholders of the Corporation was duly called and held, upon notice in accordance with Section 222 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, at which meeting the necessary number of shares as required by applicable law was voted in favor of the Amendment.
FIFTH: That said Amendment was duly adopted in accordance with the provisions of Section 242 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF , the Corporation has caused this Certificate of Amendment of the Restated Certificate of Incorporation to be executed on this _____ day of ______, 20__.
