  Five Star Quality Care, Inc. to Restate 2011, 2012 and First and Second
  Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Business Wire

NEWTON, Mass. -- November 27, 2013

Five Star Quality Care, Inc. (NYSE: FVE) today announced that it will restate
its financial results for 2011, 2012 and the first and second quarters of
2013. As previously disclosed in FVE’s press release dated November 12, 2013,
in connection with the preparation of FVE’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for
the quarter ended September 30, 2013, management identified certain errors
primarily relating to the accounting for non-cash income tax items in prior
periods. At this time, correcting these errors is expected to:

  *Increase the net deferred tax assets previously reported in FVE’s
    financial statements as of December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012.
  *Increase the cumulative other comprehensive income as previously reported
    in FVE’s financial statements as of December 31, 2011 and December 31,
    2012.
  *Increase the benefit for income taxes as previously reported in FVE’s
    financial statements and create a corresponding increase in net income for
    the year ended December 31, 2011.
  *Increase the provision for income taxes as previously reported in FVE’s
    financial statements and create a corresponding decrease in net income for
    the year ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in FVE’s income for the
    year ended December 31, 2012, is currently expected to be less than the
    amount of the increase in income for the year ended December 31, 2011.

In addition, some of FVE’s net deferred tax assets previously reported are
expected to be reclassified from long term assets to current assets as of each
of December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012. It is also expected that there
will be adjustments made to FVE’s previously reported net deferred tax assets,
provision or benefit for income taxes for the periods ending March 31, 2013
and June 30, 2013; but it has not yet been determined if these adjustments
will increase or decrease the previously reported net deferred tax assets,
provision or benefit for income taxes for these 2013 periods.

Because of the restatements described herein, FVE’s previously filed financial
reports for the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012 and for
the periods ended March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2013 should no longer be relied
upon.

FVE has determined that, as a result of the matters discussed above, FVE has a
material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting because FVE
did not maintain adequate and effective internal control over its accounting
for income taxes. FVE is currently in the process of remediating this material
weakness in its internal control over financial reporting by designing and
implementing new procedures related to FVE’s accounting for income taxes. FVE
is also working to prepare restated financial reports for the affected
periods. These restated reports and a late filed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q
for the period ended September 30, 2013, will be filed with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission as soon as they are prepared, audited or
reviewed, as the case may be, by FVE’s independent public accounting firm and
approved for filing.

Five Star Quality Care, Inc. is a senior living and healthcare services
company that owns, leases and manages senior living communities, including
primarily private pay independent and assisted living communities located
throughout the U.S. FVE is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts.
