Five Star Quality Care Inc (FVE) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2010-12-31.

Five Star Qual Care has a market cap of $236.9 million; its shares were traded at around $6.63 with a P/E ratio of 13.5 and P/S ratio of 0.2. Hedge Fund Gurus that owns FVE: Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies LLC, Steven Cohen of SAC Capital Advisors.

Highlight of Business Operations:

The aggregate market value of the voting shares of common stock, $0.01 par value, or common shares, of the registrant held by non-affiliates was $95.1 million based on the $3.02 closing price per common share on the NYSE Amex (on which the registrant's shares were then traded) on June 30, 2010. For purposes of this calculation, an aggregate of 4,224,727.7 common shares, including 3,235,000 common shares held by Senior Housing Properties Trust, or SNH, are held by the directors and officers of the registrant and SNH and have been included in the number of common shares held by affiliates.

In March 2007, we agreed with SNH that it should sell two assisted living communities in Pennsylvania, which we lease from SNH. In November 2010, we decided to change our operating plans for, and to continue to operate, one of these communities because we could not find a qualified buyer at an acceptable price. Consequently, the operating losses of this community totaling $897,000, $604,000 and $2.8 million for the years ended December 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively, are no longer included in discontinued operations and we have reclassified the consolidated statement of income to include the results of operations as continuing. The operating loss for 2008 includes an impairment of long lived assets totaling $1.8 million related to these communities. We and SNH are still in the process of selling the other assisted living community and, if and when it is sold, our annual minimum rent payable to SNH will decrease by 9.0% of the net proceeds of the sale to SNH, in accordance with the terms of our lease with SNH.

During 2009, at our request, SNH sold two SNFs, which we leased from SNH. In October 2009, SNH sold a SNF located in Iowa to an unaffiliated party for approximately $473,000 and our rent payable to SNH decreased by approximately $47,300. In November 2009, SNH sold a SNF located in Missouri to an unaffiliated party for approximately $1.2 million, and our rent payable to SNH decreased by approximately $124,700.

In August 2010, at our request, SNH sold four SNFs, which we leased from SNH, located in Nebraska to an unaffiliated party for approximately $1.5 million, and our rent payable to SNH decreased by approximately $145,000.

In 2006, we issued $126.5 million principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2026, or the Notes. The Notes bear interest at 3.75% per annum, payable semi-annually, and will mature on October 15, 2026. We may prepay the Notes at anytime after October 20, 2011 and the Note holders may require that we purchase all or a portion of these Notes on each of October 15, 2013, 2016 and 2021. During 2010, we purchased and retired $11.8 million par value of the Notes for $10.8 million plus accrued interest. As a result of these purchases we recorded a $726,000 gain, net of related unamortized costs, on early extinguishment of debt; $37.9 million in principal amount of these Notes remains outstanding.
