AdCare Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ADK), an Ohio-based long-term care, home care and management company, reported record results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 that showed revenue in 2009 increased 8% to a record $26.7 million from $24.8 million in 2008. The improvement was primarily due to a 3.3% average occupancy increase in skilled nursing centers for the year. For fiscal 2009, net income was a record $440,000 or $0.10 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $1.1 million or $(0.28) per basic and diluted share in 2008.
"2009 was a milestone for AdCare, as our fifth consecutive year of revenue growth resulted in our first profitable year as a public company," said David A. Tenwick, AdCare’s chairman. "The record results were the outcome of the solid foundation we laid in 2008, which allowed us to increase our occupancy while controlling our expenses. We accomplished this while maintaining the best quality of care and sustaining our position as the provider of choice in the areas we serve.”
