AdCare Health Systems, Inc. Reports 2007 Third Quarter Earnings Results
Shows a Net Profit from Property Sale and Continues to Reduce Losses
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AdCare Health Systems, Inc. (Amex: ADK), an Ohio based long term care, home care and management company, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2007.
Revenues for the quarter ended September 30th, 2007 were $5,906,326 as compared to $5,660,337 for the same quarter in 2006, an increase of $245,989, or 4.3%. The increase was due to improved occupancy in our assisted living properties and an increase in visits made by our nurses and caregivers at our home health care division.
The loss before discontinued operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 was $212,840 as compared to a loss of $655,599 for the quarter ended September 30, 2006, an improvement of $442,759. The improvement was due to an increased occupancy at our assisted living properties, more visits made by our staff at our home health care division and lower interest expense as a result of the expenses related to the mezzanine financing in 2005 being fully recognized in 2006.
Net income for the quarter ended September 30th, 2007 was $395,785 as compared to a loss of $654,646 for the quarter ended September 30th, 2006, an improvement of $1,050,431. Approximately $618,000 of this improvement resulted from recognizing a gain on the sale of assets in our discontinued operations.
David A. Tenwick, Chairman of AdCare, stated that "AdCare reduced its losses this quarter and looks for continued improvement. For the nine months of 2007, the loss before discontinued operations was $539,360 as compared to a loss of $1,908,864 for the nine months of 2006. The loss this year would have been reduced by an additional $137,000 if not for increased fees for a letter of credit extension relating to changing banks and expenses for a discontinued acquisition. If you add the profit from the sale of assets from discontinued operations, we had a net profit of $48,125 for the nine months. AdCare continues to make progress." Mr. Tenwick further stated "We are refinancing some of our properties to improve cash flow and are actively engaged in seeking out suitable acquisitions to further the growth of AdCare."
AdCare Health Systems, Inc. will host a conference call on Thursday, November 15th, 2007 at 4:15 PM EST. The dial-in number is 1-800-257-2182.
