The Company is targeting a capital raise of up to $15 million. The initial use of proceeds will be for working capital and for other general corporate purposes, including to facilitate Digirad’s diversified holding company structure.
As disclosed in a press release issued by the Company on September 10, 2018, Digirad’s Board of Directors approved the conversion of Digirad into a diversified holding company (“HoldCo”).
