AdCare Health Systems Reports Record Fiscal 2009 Results

Record Annual Revenues of $26.7 Million Drives Record Net Income of $0.10 per Share

SPRINGFIELD, OH--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) - 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.

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. Net income in 2008 included a $414,000 gain recognized upon the acquisition of the New Lincoln Lodge.

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2009 totaled $4.5 million, as compared to $1.3 million at the end of fiscal 2008. The increase was due primarily to $1.9 million generated by operations in 2009 and a $2.4 million net equity financing completed in the fourth quarter of 2009.

"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.

"In 2009, we also repositioned AdCare to grow more aggressively through acquisitions. In the fourth quarter we strengthened our balance sheet through the issuance of new equity and we expanded our board of directors, including appointing Christopher Brogdon as vice chairman.

"As our largest individual shareholder, Chris has demonstrated a strong, long-term commitment to AdCare. His extensive track record of building publicly-traded companies through strategic acquisitions has continued with us as our new chief acquisitions officer. Chris led the recent negotiations to acquire two nursing facilities, which is expected to close in the second quarter under favorable financing terms and expand our bottom line while adding more than 60% to our annualized top line."

Brogdon commented: "As the year advances, we continue to see tremendous opportunities in the highly fragmented health care segments of senior assisted living, elderly nursing care and home health care services. With several more potential acquisitions in our pipeline, we expect the foundation we laid in 2009 will make 2010 another milestone year for AdCare."
