Revenues for the year ended September 30, 2010 were $86,905,329, an increase of $6,554,877, or 8.16% over revenues of $80,350,452 for the year ended September 30, 2009.  Net income was $3,135,960, or $0.32 per share, for the year ended September 30, 2010 compared to net income of $3,094,889, or $0.31 per share, for the year ended September 30, 2009.  Net income for the year ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 included a pre-tax gain of $2,732,840 and $776,672, respectively, related to the recovery of misappropriation losses associated with the previously reported fraudulent activities of the Company's former Chief Financial Officer.    

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 were $21,879,895, a decrease of $353,465, or 1.59% under revenues of $22,233,360 for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. Net income was $315,970, or $0.04 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 compared to a net income of $1,228,515, or $0.12 per share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2009.  

President and Chief Executive Officer, Michael Stout, MD, stated, "We are pleased with our revenue growth in 2010.  The new centers we opened in the latter part of fiscal year 2009 added significantly to our revenues in 2010; however, revenues from established centers also increased by $1.7 million.  Revenues in both 2010 and 2009 were positively impacted by the outbreak of the H1N1 flu in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2010.  In 2011 we will continue to seek opportunities to expand our business through the opening of new centers."

Joe Boyle, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, stated, "We made solid progress in several areas during 2010.  First, we brought current our SEC filings which had become delinquent as a result of the investigation of our former Chief Financial Officer, Jerry F. Wells, Jr.  We also settled an insurance claim related to his fraudulent activities which added significantly to our 2010 financial results.  In addition, we successfully maintained our focus on building our cash resources and working capital to support the continued expansion of our core business.  In 2011 we will continue to build on the financial base we have established and to focus on making our business more efficient."
