The loss in 2009 is primarily attributable to a non-cash charge to operations of $1.7 million related to impairment of the Company’s oil and gas reserves. In addition, the spot price for natural gas in the markets where the Company operates was substantially lower in 2009 than in 2008.

Revenues and Operating Expenses: Total revenues for 2009 totaled $4.1 million compared to $3.6 million in 2008. The primary reason for the increase is the acquisition of the oil and gas operations in September 2008.

Revenue for the retirement facility totaled approximately $2.9 million for 2008 and 2009.Operating expenses totaled $6.8 million for 2009 compared to $3.7 million for 2008. In 2009, oil and gas operating costs totaled $1.5 million compared to $496,000 in 2008 due to the acquisition of the oil and gas operations described above. In 2009, the company recorded a non-cash charge to operations of $1.7 million for impairment of natural gas and oil properties, pursuant to the results of the full-cost ceiling test.
