"We are very pleased with our results for 2009, which reflect the rapid pace at which we have increased the resident census at our newest senior living facilities in Knoxville, Tennessee and Port Lavaca, Texas," stated Donald W. Sapaugh, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TrinityCare Senior Living, Inc. "Based upon total available units in our three facilities, our occupancy approximated 89.8% (203 out of 226 units occupied) at the end of 2009. We look forward to achieving stabilized occupancy in all of our current facilities in 2010."
"Our aggressive growth strategy for TrinityCare, including expansion in several existing and new markets during the next twelve months, has continued to move forward in spite of tight credit markets. To date, we have entered into agreements to develop 82-unit senior living facilities in Katy, Texas; Crossville, Tennessee; Pearland, Texas; Seymour, Tennessee; and Covington, Louisiana. In addition, the Company has a commitment to build a 78-unit community in Shreveport, Louisiana. Our unique approach to the provision of independent living, assisted living and memory care services for seniors in a faith-based environment has attracted widespread interest from developers, churches and other prospective partners throughout the United States. For the time being, we are focusing our expansion program upon locations in the southeastern U.S., where we can provide needed services to local communities while building value for our shareholders. In addition to the above-noted agreements and commitment to expand in the South and Southeast, the Company is currently involved in negotiations regarding the development and management of a project in Alabama and the management of an existing senior living community in Georgia."
