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.
