Continues To Reduce Losses

Mar 31, 2008, 01:00 ET from AdCare Health Systems, Inc.

    SPRINGFIELD, Ohio, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AdCare Health
 Systems, Inc. (Amex:   ADK), an Ohio based long term care, home care and
 management company today reported financial results for its year ending
 December 31, 2007.
     Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2007 were $23,667,756 as
 compared to $22,549,485 in 2006, an increase of $1,118,271. The improvement
 was primarily due to increased occupancy in our assisted living facilities
 and an increase in visits made by our nurses and care givers at our home
 health care division.
     The loss before discontinued operations for the year ended December 31,
 2007 was $627,552 as compared to a loss of $2,413,794 for 2006, an
 improvement of $1,786,242 or 74%. In general, the improvement was due to
 increased occupancy at our assisted living properties, more home health
 care visits, lower interest expense as a result of the expenses related to
 our mezzanine financing in 2005 being fully recognized in 2006, increasing
 the reserve for our investment note in the Lincoln Lodge property and
 recognizing an income tax benefit.
     The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $218,928 as
 compared to a net loss of $2,441,217 for 2006, an improvement of $2,222,289
 or 89% and helped by recognizing a gain on the sale of assets in
 discontinued operations. Basic and diluted net loss per share for 2007 was
 $0.05 as compared to a basic and diluted net loss per share of $1.09 for
 2006, an improvement of $1.04 per share.
     David A. Tenwick, Chairman of AdCare, stated that, "AdCare reduced its
 losses in each quarter of 2007 as compared to 2006 and continues to move
 toward profitability in 2008. Going public in November of 2006 was the
 prelude to expanding our operations, securing liquidity for our
 shareholders and having the ability to use our stock for making
 acquisitions." In that regard, Mr. Tenwick added that he is excited about
 having GCC Capital Group and Prospect Financial Advisors "on board to
 assist in identifying, evaluating and securing alternative capital,
 financing and investment sources to further AdCare's expansion plans."
