“Five Star’s second quarter results generated income from continuing operations of $0.06 per share, after excluding $0.04 per share of gain from the Sunrise litigation settlement, which is $0.04 per share better than income from continuing operations during the first quarter of 2012. EBITDA also improved over the first quarter of 2012 by over 50% to $13.4 million during the second quarter, after excluding $3.4 million of gain from the Sunrise litigation settlement. These improvements were largely driven by improved community expense margin management and a sequential improvement in ADR. Although increasing occupancy continues to be a challenge for the company, we believe our consolidated senior living occupancy is equal to the industry average and our same store senior living occupancy remained essentially unchanged year over year.Over the last few months we have continued to focus on the private pay independent and assisted living industry. Since May, we have either begun to manage or agreed to manage 12 additional communities with 2,763 living units. Also, we recently reached agreement to sell our pharmacy business for expected effective net cash receipts of $39.9 million, which is over twice as much as we have invested in the business.
