Independent Auditor’s Report

To the Members
of Senior Living Communities, LLC and Subsidiaries

We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Senior Living Communities, LLC (a North Carolina limited liability company) and subsidiaries, which comprise the consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in members’ deficit, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017, and the related notes to the financial statements.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Senior Living Communities, LLC and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Changes in Accounting Principles
As described in Note B to the financial statements, effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted new accounting guidance for goodwill and for leases. ASU 2017-04 simplifies the accounting for goodwill impairments. ASC 842, Leases requires lessees to recognize lease assets and lease liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets and to disclose key information about leasing arrangements. Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, related to recognition of revenue from occupancy agreements with residents and costs incurred by the Company to obtain those contracts. Our opinion is not modified with respect to these matters.

Senior Living Communities, LLC and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE A - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Business Activity - Senior Living Communities, LLC (the Company) was organized November 1, 2005 for the purpose of developing and operating continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) located in the United States. It operates as a limited liability company (LLC) in accordance with and pursuant to the North Carolina Limited Liability Company Act, and its members have limited personal liability for the obligations or debts of the entity. Only one class of member’s interest exists.

Consolidated Financial Statements - These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Senior Living Communities, LLC and its subsidiaries - BrightWater Retirement, LLC; Cascades Retirement, LLC; Cascades Nursing, LLC; Charlotte Assisted Living, LLC; Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC; Homestead Hill Retirement, LP; Litchfield Retirement, LLC; Marsh’s Edge, LLC; Osprey Village at Amelia Island, Ltd.; Ridgecrest Retirement, LLC and Summit Hills, LLC. All material intercompany transactions and accounts are eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Reclassifications - Certain accounts in the prior year financial statements may have been reclassified for comparative purposes to conform with the presentation in the current year financial statements.

Limited Liability Company / Income Taxes - The Company has elected to file its income tax return on the accrual basis as a partnership for federal and state income tax purposes. As a result, the Company’s taxable earnings or losses are passed through to the Company’s members who are then taxed based on their allocable share of such taxable earnings or losses. Accordingly, no provision or benefit for federal or state income taxes has been reported by the Company. The Company is no longer subject to income tax examinations by tax authorities for 2015 and prior years.

As a limited liability company, each member’s liability is limited to amounts reflected in their respective member capital accounts.

Cash and Cash Equivalents - The Company considers all highly liquid unrestricted investments with maturities of three months or less to be cash. The Company had no cash equivalents during the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017.

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts - Accounts receivable are reported net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. On a periodic basis, management evaluates accounts receivable balances and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on its analysis of collectability as the receivables age. The allowance for doubtful accounts at December 31, 2019 and 2018 is $832,652 and $631,403 respectively.

Accounts receivable includes amounts due from third-party payors. Billings for services under third-party payor programs are recorded at amounts expected to be collected. Subsequent positive or negative adjustments are recorded when known. Contractual or cost related adjustments from Medicare are accrued when assessed. Gross amounts due from third-party payors at December 31, 2019 and 2018 are $2,725,002 and $3,279,430, respectively.

Inventory - Inventories are stated at cost determined on the first-in, first-out basis.

Property and Equipment - Property and equipment are carried at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Major renewals and improvements are capitalized while replacements, maintenance, and repairs which do not improve or extend the life of the assets, are expensed currently. When assets are sold or retired, their cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and resulting gains and losses are included in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Senior Living Communities, LLC and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE A - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Deferred Commissions - The Company pays commissions on all occupancy agreements. The Company will occasionally provide move-in services or other incentives to residents to sign an occupancy agreement for independent living units. On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires all incremental costs of entering into contracts with customers to be recognized as an asset and amortized over the expected life of the contracts. The nonrefundable portion of occupancy fees received from independent living residents prior to moving into the community is earned over a five-year amortization period. The related costs are expensed on a straight-line basis over the same five-year amortization period. If a resident moves out prior to the end of the five-year period, the remaining costs will be expensed in the same period. Amortization of these costs is included in marketing expenses. Accumulated amortization of deferred commissions at December 31, 2019 and 2018 is $3,909,015 and $2,106,930, respectively.

The Company expenses, as incurred, costs related to acquiring healthcare rental agreements with residents who move into assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing under the practical expedient permitted under FASB ASC 340, Other Assets and Deferred Costs, because these contracts are considered contracts that are renewed monthly.

Goodwill - The Company early adopted ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Accounting for Goodwill Impairment. This ASU requires entities to calculate impairment as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. The ASU requires the same test be applied to goodwill for all reporting units, even those with zero or negative carrying amounts and requires entities to disclose the amount of goodwill at reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Prior to the adoption of ASU 2017-04, the Company followed ASC 350 - Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, and tested goodwill for impairment annually or whenever indicators of impairment arise. For the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017, no impairment of goodwill was identified.

Compensated Absences - Employees of the Company are entitled to paid time off depending upon job classification, length of service, and other factors. The amount of paid time off earned but not taken by employees is recorded as a current liability on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The amount reflects as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, all unused time off employees have earned at their current rate of pay that would be payable upon termination under the Company’s payout policy. The applicable share of employer-related taxes payable on the eventual payments has not been accrued as it is not practicable for the Company to estimate. The Company’s policy is to recognize the employer-related taxes when the payment is made to the employee. Accrued paid time off included in Accrued Expenses at December 31, 2019 and 2018 is $1,576,319 and $1,495,742, respectively.

Self-Insurance - The Company self-insures health related claims for its covered employees up to certain limits. Claims in excess of these limits are insured with stop-loss insurance. The Company has accrued a liability it believes is adequate to cover the outstanding claims and claims that have been incurred but not yet reported as of December 31, 2019 and 2018. Any subsequent changes in estimate are recorded in the period in which they are determined.

Revenue Recognition - The Company offers various forms of contracts (occupancy agreements) with independent living residents which require an entrance fee to be paid upon moving into its communities. The nonrefundable portion of the occupancy fee paid represents contract revenues to be recognized over the expected length of time a resident will reside in the community’s independent living. Monthly services fees are revenues associated with the contracts with residents and are billed monthly in advance. The Company recognizes revenue from monthly services fees as services are provided to residents under guidance that applies to contracts that are monthly with the option to renew. Monthly service fee revenue is recognized at the billing rates that the Company establishes from time to time. Ancillary Income is recognized from services provided to residents on an “as needed” basis and for which a separate charge is assessed and billed in arrears. See Note N for further discussion of the Company’s revenues.

Leases - On December 17, 2014, the Company entered into a master lease agreement with National Health Investors, Inc. This master lease has an initial lease term that is set to expire on December 31, 2029, and has two options to extend the lease for an additional five years with each extension. On November 8, 2016, Senior Living Communities, LLC entered into a lease agreement with NHI-REIT of Evergreen, LLC for another community. This lease has an initial lease term that is set to expire on December 31, 2029, and has two options to extend the lease for an additional five years each. On June 28, 2019, Senior

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE A - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Living Communities, LLC entered into a lease agreement with NHI-REIT of Axel, LLC for an additional community. This new lease has an initial lease term that is also set to expire on December 31, 2029, and has two options to extend the lease for an additional five years each. Senior Living Communities, LLC entered into sub-lease agreements with its subsidiaries under the same lease terms it has with National Health Investors, Inc.

With the adoption of ASC 842, Leases, on January 1, 2019, the Company determined whether an arrangement is or contains a lease at lease inception. Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets, current operating lease liabilities and non-current operating lease liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The right-of-use asset represents the Company’s right to use the leased assets over the term of the lease. Lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligations to make lease payments over the term of the lease.

For operating leases, the Company determines the present value of the lease payments over the lease term, including any renewal periods that they are reasonably certain they will exercise. To determine the present value of the lease payments, the Company uses the rate implicit in the lease if it is determinable. When the rate implicit in the lease is not determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate at the commencement date of the lease. Lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company has elected not to recognize an asset or obligation for leases with an initial term of twelve months or less. The expense associated with short-term leases is included in operating expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.

For finance leases, after lease commencement the lease liability is measured on an amortized cost basis and increased to reflect interest on the liability and decreased to reflect the lease payments made during the period. Interest on the lease liability is determined each period during the lease term as the amount that results in a constant period discount rate on the remaining balance of the liability. The right-of-use asset is subsequently measured at cost, less any accumulated amortization and any impairment losses. Amortization is recognized over the period from commencement of the lease to the earlier of the (1) end of the useful life of the asset, or (2) the end of the lease term. The discount rate used by the Company for the finance leases is the Company’s incremental borrowing rate as determined at lease inception.

To the extent that a lease arrangement includes both lease and non-lease components, where the Company is the lessee, the components are accounted for separately.

Prior to the adoption of ASC 842, Leases, the Company recognized lease expense on a straight-line basis over the life of the lease. The difference between rent expense recognized and rental payments, as stipulated in the lease, was reflected as straight-line rent payable - NHI in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.

See Note Q for further discussion of the Company’s leases.

Advertising - The Company expenses advertising costs when the advertising first takes place. Consolidated advertising expenses for the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017 are $1,218,086; $1,251,357; and $1,338,705, respectively.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments - ASC 820-10 defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation framework and hierarchy for disclosure of fair value measurements. That framework prioritizes the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value of an asset or liability as of the measurement date. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The three levels are described as follows:
    
Level 1 - Inputs to the valuation methodology are unadjusted quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
Level 2 - Inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted market prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.
Level 3 - Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

Cash and occupancy fee deposits in escrow are carried at amounts considered by management to approximate fair value because of their short-term nature.

Senior Living Communities, LLC and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE A - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Recent Accounting Pronouncements - In May of 2014 the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606). In August of 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, which deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 to be effective for public entities with annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Other entities are required to apply the new standard for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. Under this new standard, entities are required to recognize revenue from contracts with customers as goods or services are provided under the terms of the contract, in amounts expected to be realized from the transfer. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2018.

In February of 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2017-02, Leases, that replaces existing lease guidance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and will require companies to account for virtually all lease obligations by recording lease assets and lease liabilities on their balance sheets. The new pronouncement is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, and for private companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The standard provides for a modified retrospective application and requires certain disclosures to assist users of the financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows related to leases. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2019.

In January of 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other: Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment. ASU 2017-04 simplifies the subsequent measurement of goodwill by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. In computing an implied fair value of goodwill under Step 2, the Company had to perform procedures to determine the fair value at the impairment testing date of its assets and liabilities, including unrecognized assets and liabilities, following the procedure that would be required in determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in a business combination. Under this update, the Company is required to perform its annual goodwill impairment test by comparing the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount. The effective date of this ASU for public companies is for years beginning after December 31, 2019, and for all others for years beginning after December 31, 2020. Early adoption is permitted and is to be applied on a prospective basis. The Company adopted this standard on January 1, 2019.


NOTE B - CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES

ASU 2017-04 - Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350)

The Company early adopted ASU 2017-04, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Accounting for Goodwill Impairment. This ASU simplifies the accounting for goodwill impairments by eliminating the requirement to compare implied fair value of goodwill with its carrying amount and requires entities to calculate impairment as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying amount of goodwill. The ASU requires the same test be applied to goodwill for all reporting units, even those with zero or negative carrying amounts and requires entities to disclose the amount of goodwill at reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. The new standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company adopted this standard effective January 1, 2019. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

ASU 2016-02 - Leases (ASC 842)

On January 1, 2019, Senior Living Communities, LLC and its subsidiaries adopted ASU 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842). This new accounting standard replaces existing lease guidance in GAAP and requires entities to account for virtually all lease obligations by recording lease assets and lease liabilities on their balance sheets. As part of the transition to the new standard, the Company was required to measure and recognize leases that existed on January 1, 2019, using a modified retrospective approach. For leases existing at the effective date, the Company elected to utilize the transition practical expedients and did not reassess whether an arrangement is or contains a lease, did not reassess lease classification, did not reassess what qualifies as an initial direct cost, and elected to continue to apply legacy guidance to the prior years. The Company also elected not to recognize leases in the Consolidated Balance Sheets that have an initial lease term of twelve months or less.

NOTE B - CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES (Continued)

The adoption of ASC 842 resulted in the recognition of operating right-of-use (ROU) assets and lease liabilities of $322,145,096 and $351,189,945, respectively. The Company did not have any finance leases to recognize with the adoption of ASC 842. The difference between the additional lease assets and lease liabilities reduced straight-line rent payable at December 31, 2018 to zero. The standard did not materially affect the Company’s consolidated net loss and had no impact on cash flows.

ASU 2014-09 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606)

The Company adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, related to the nonrefundable portion of occupancy fees received in advance associated with occupancy agreements with residents and costs incurred by the Company to obtain those contracts on January 1, 2018. In adopting ASC 606, the Company has made no changes to the method of recognizing revenues related to the nonrefundable portion of occupancy fees received in advance or to the monthly service fees and ancillary income recognized as services are provided to residents. The Company continues to recognize the nonrefundable portion of the occupancy fees received in advance on a straight-line basis over a five-year amortization period, which approximates the average length of residency of the independent living residents of all communities owned by Senior Living Communities, LLC.

Beginning January 1, 2018, the Company changed its method of accounting for commissions and other costs directly related to entering into occupancy agreements that require an advanced payment from independent living residents moving into the community. Because the Company expects to recover these costs from the revenues earned under the occupancy agreements signed with residents over a period of five years, the Company believes these costs fall within the definition in the new standard of incremental costs of obtaining a contract. The new standard requires these costs to be capitalized and amortized on a systematic basis that is consistent with fulfilling the Company’s performance obligations under the occupancy agreements. The Company records amortization as a marketing expense over the same five-year amortization period that it recognizes the revenue related to the occupancy agreements. If a resident moves out before the end of the five-year period, any unamortized costs related to that resident’s occupancy agreement are expensed.

NOTE B - CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES (Continued)

The Company applied ASC 606 using the modified retrospective method applicable to all occupancy agreements requiring an entrance fee from a resident when the resident moves into the community. Results for reporting periods beginning after January 1, 2018 are presented under ASC 606 while prior periods continue to be reported in accordance with legacy GAAP. The Company recorded a net change in beginning member’s deficit of $6,523,563 as of January 1, 2018 due to the cumulative effect of adopting ASC 606. The transition adjustment is the result of capitalizing commissions associated with the occupancy agreements with residents.

NOTE C - CASH AND RESTRICTED CASH

For purposes of the Consolidated Balance Sheets and the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and other highly liquid resources, such as investments in certificates of deposit and money market funds with an original maturity of three months or less when acquired.

The lease agreements with National Health Investors, Inc. require the Company to maintain certain escrow accounts. These restricted cash accounts are reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as current assets. In addition to the escrow accounts required by the leases, various states require certain deposits received from residents to be temporarily held in an escrow account before it is available to be used in the Company’s operations. Additionally, the Company has segregated certain resident monies from its operating cash.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE D - CONCENTRATIONS

Senior Living Communities, LLC and its subsidiaries maintain their cash balances at one bank under a sweep account arrangement. The operating accounts of Senior Living Communities, LLC and each of its participating subsidiaries are zero balance accounts. The daily ending balance of each account is cleared by sweep transfers to a master account held by Senior Living Communities, LLC. Funds held in the master account are owned by the respective entities, and Senior Living Communities, LLC is the custodian. When funds are required in the operating accounts to clear checks and other disbursements, the necessary amounts are automatically transferred from the master account back to the operating accounts.

Deposit insurance through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is a function of ownership of the funds on deposit. Each entity participating in the master account is entitled to its own separate deposit insurance up to $250,000. At times the balances may exceed the insured amounts. The Company periodically reviews the financial condition of the institutions and believes the risk of loss to be minimal.


NOTE E - ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE - OTHER

Several communities have experienced storm-related damages and evacuation costs during the period. Claims submitted to insurance for these costs at December 31, 2019 and 2018 total $296,868 and $158,409, respectively.

The Company experienced several health-related claims under its employee benefits plan for which it self-insures. At December 31, 2019, the Company expects to be reimbursed $251,382 under its stop-loss insurance.

As described in Note S, the Company acquired a new assisted living community in 2019. Included in the lease for the community was a commitment from the landlord to reimburse certain expenses of the Company incurred in the transition of the management of the operations of the community. Accounts receivable - other includes $646,182 due from the landlord under this arrangement.

Under the First Amendment to Master Lease between Senior Living Communities, LLC and NHI-REIT of Seaside, LLC and the Second Amendment to Lease between Senior Living Communities, LLC and NHI-REIT of Evergreen, LLC dated August 24, 2018, the landlords have agreed to provide funds to the Company to make certain improvements, repairs, and renovations to the facilities. Total anticipated landlord funding to be provided for the improvements is $6,830,000, with specific amounts designated for each community. Outstanding reimbursements under this arrangement at December 31, 2018 total $223,269. The Company was fully reimbursed during the year ended December 31, 2019.


NOTE F - CONSTRUCTION IN PROGRESS

The Company has expansion projects at several communities. The projects include cottages, villas and other improvements. Costs related to the construction are allocated to the specific project or unit under construction, including interest on the allocated portion of the construction line of credit. Once the unit has received its certificate of occupancy or the renovation project is complete, the total cost is removed from construction in progress and is included in leasehold improvements. Any interest charged after the unit has been capitalized is included in expense until the allocated construction advance is repaid.


NOTE G - GOODWILL

Goodwill as reported in the Consolidated Balance Sheets is comprised of goodwill associated with two reporting units with negative carrying values - Marsh’s Edge, LLC and Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC. Goodwill was recorded in these units when the operations of the two communities were acquired, and liabilities assumed exceeded assets transferred in the acquisition. Total goodwill of Marsh’s Edge, LLC is $27,886,228, and total goodwill of Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC is $56,089,440 at December 31, 2019 and 2018.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE H - DEFERRED COMMISSIONS

The Company pays commissions and other move-in incentives directly tied to occupancy agreements that are signed with independent living residents and that require occupancy fees to be paid in advance. Management believes these are recoverable costs. Therefore, the Company has capitalized them as Deferred Commissions in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets. These costs are amortized over the estimated period the Company will provide services to the residents and over which it earns the nonrefundable portion of occupancy fees received upon move-in. Based on the average residency of an independent living resident across all communities operated by Senior Living Communities, LLC, the Company expects this to be five years from the date the resident moves in. The related costs are expensed on a straight-line basis over the same five-year amortization period and included in marketing expenses in the accompanying Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company recognizes an impairment loss for any unamortized costs related to a contract with a resident who moves out prior to the end of the five-year amortization period. The impairment loss is also recorded as amortization to marketing expense.

Amortization of deferred commissions for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 is $3,033,048 and $2,882,636, respectively.

Prior to January 1, 2018, the Company expensed as incurred all commissions and move-in incentives directly tied to occupancy agreements in accordance with ASC 954 - Health Care Entities.

The Company expenses as incurred all incremental costs related to acquiring healthcare rental agreements with residents who move into assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing under the practical expedient permitted under FASB ASC 340, Other Assets and Deferred Costs, because these contracts are considered rental agreements that are renewed monthly.


NOTE I - LINE OF CREDIT FROM NHI

National Health Investors, Inc. has provided a line of credit to Senior Living Communities, LLC to be used for various construction projects and to provide working capital as necessary. In 2019, the loan agreement was modified to provide the Company a maximum amount of $12,000,000 through December 31, 2021. Beginning January 1, 2022, the available maximum will be $7,000,000. Of the available amount, $2,000,000 is restricted to use for construction projects at the Company’s communities. Prior to the 2019 modification, the maximum amount available to the Company under the agreement was $15,000,000 through December 31, 2019 and $5,000,000 thereafter.

Interest on the outstanding principal balance of the loan accrues at a floating per annum rate of the Ten Year Treasury Note Rate (as published in the Wall Street Journal on the fifteenth (15th) day of each month or if the Wall Street Journal is not published on the fifteenth day of the month then the next publication day thereafter) plus six percent (6%). On the first business day of each month thereafter, the Company shall pay to the landlord, (a) accrued interest at the Note Rate based upon the principal outstanding during the Interest Accrual Period, and (b) any other amounts due under the Loan Documents. The Company has the option of capitalizing the interest hereunder by adding it to the principal balance each month and paying it on the Maturity Date. Principal payments under a Working Capital Loan shall be due on the first day of the month following receipt by the landlord of the Company’s consolidated quarterly financial statements, if the Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio for the trailing twelve month period of operation ending on the last day of such quarter is at least 1.00 to 1.00, in an amount equal to 75% of the amount by which the numerator of such ratio exceeds the denominator of such ratio. Outstanding advances at December 31, 2019 and 2018 under this agreement are $5,173,716 and $1,900,461, respectively.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE K - REFUNDABLE OCCUPANCY FEES

Senior Living Communities, LLC and its subsidiaries recognize a long-term liability for the refundable portions of occupancy fees received from residents. Under the terms of the occupancy agreements and the master lease with the landlord, the refunds are to be made from occupancy fees collected from replacement residents.

The Company offers three forms of occupancy agreements: The “90% Minimum Refund Plan,” the “60% Minimum Refund Plan,” and the “Endowment Plan.” The Company has also offered a “100% Minimum Refund Plan.” The “100% Minimum Refund Plan” and the “90% Minimum Refund Plan” occupancy agreements provide for repayment to the resident 100% or 90% of the original occupancy fee paid by the resident, respectively, regardless of when the resident subsequently moves out of the home. The “60% Minimum Refund Plan” occupancy agreements provide for repayment to the resident 90%, 80%, or 70% of the original occupancy fee paid by the resident if the resident moves out of the home in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd year, respectively, after becoming a resident. In the 4th year or thereafter, the resident is entitled to a 60% refund of the occupancy fee paid. The “Endowment Plan” occupancy agreements provide for repayment to the resident of 90% of the original occupancy fee paid by the resident if the resident moves out of the home within the first six months of becoming a resident. After six months, the refundable portion is reduced each month by 2% of the total occupancy fee paid by the resident until the refundable portion is reduced to zero. For all of these plans, the refund is payable upon the earlier of securing a substitute resident who pays to the Company the then applicable occupancy fee or five years from the date the resident moves out.

The community operated by Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC offers two additional forms of occupancy agreements: a “Traditional Plan” or a “Tailored Plan.” The “Traditional Plan” occupancy agreements provide for a refund of 90% or 70% of the occupancy fee paid by the resident, regardless of when the resident moves out. The “Tailored Plan” occupancy agreements provide for a repayment to the resident of 90% less 2% per month for each calendar month or fraction of a month from the date the resident paid the occupancy fee until the resident moves out. After forty-five months the refundable portion is reduced to zero. The refund obligation is usually due thirty days after a substitute resident has paid the Company the applicable occupancy fee. However, some of these occupancy agreements provide for the refund to be paid one year, eighteen months, or three years after the resident has moved out, even if the unit has not been reoccupied.

Some of the residents of the community operated by Cascades Retirement, LLC were residents prior to the acquisition by Senior Living Communities, LLC in 2010. The occupancy agreements with these residents provide for a refund of 90% of the occupancy fee received from the substitute resident.

Certain refund obligations are secured by mortgages from the landlord.


NOTE L - DEFERRED REVENUES

A portion of the occupancy fee received from residents represents payment for future services and therefore is nonrefundable. The nonrefundable portion is recorded as deferred revenue and recognized as earned revenue over a period of five years from the resident’s move-in date, which approximates the average residency of the communities’ residents in independent living. For “60% Minimum Refund Plans” and “Endowment Plans,” the deferred revenue is adjusted as amounts become nonrefundable under the terms of the occupancy agreements. Total nonrefundable occupancy fees to be recognized as revenue in future periods under existing occupancy fee contracts as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 are $17,654,885 and $18,473,564, respectively. Periodically, the Company re-evaluates the appropriate revenue recognition period for income earned from these contracts.

NOTE M - LIABILITY INSURANCE

The Company maintains general liability and professional liability insurance policies with coverage and deductibles it believes are appropriate based on the nature of its business and its historical experience. The policies provide coverage on an occurrence basis and are subject to certain deductibles. The Company routinely reviews the adequacy of its insurance coverage and its accruals for any losses not covered by insurance.

The Company is the subject of certain lawsuits occurring in the normal course of business. Management, after consultation with legal counsel, does not believe that the outcome of these actions will have a material impact on the financial statements of the Company. However, it is possible that an adverse outcome from such proceedings could exceed the amounts accrued in any particular reporting period.

NOTE N - REVENUE

Significant Accounting Policies and Nature of Services

Senior Living Communities, LLC operates ten continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) throughout five states through its subsidiaries. Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC operates in Connecticut. Charlotte Assisted Living, LLC; Homestead Hill Retirement, LP and Ridgecrest Retirement, LLC operate in North Carolina. BrightWater Retirement, LLC; Cascades Retirement, LLC and Cascades Nursing, LLC; Litchfield Retirement, LLC; and Summit Hills, LLC operate in South Carolina. Marsh’s Edge, LLC operates in Georgia. Osprey Village at Amelia Island, Ltd. operates in Florida.

The Company derives all of its revenues from providing an array of services to residents over the period of their residency in the communities. Such services include residential, social, wellness, dining, housekeeping and healthcare in accordance with occupancy agreements which specify the obligations of the CCRC to the resident. Generally, the communities offer a continuum of level of care units available for residents to reside: independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. Charlotte Assisted Living, LLC only offers assisted living and memory care. Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC and Ridgecrest Retirement, LLC do not offer memory care. Ridgecrest Retirement, LLC and Osprey Village at Amelia Island, Ltd. do not offer skilled nursing.

With the exception of Charlotte Assisted Living, LLC, the Company offers the following contract types: Type B - Modified Contracts, which require an entrance fee upon moving into the community and which include some health services in the initial monthly fee, and market rates are charged for services that exceed those included in the initial fee; Type C - Fee-for-Service Contracts, which also require an entrance fee upon moving into the community and market rates are charged for health care services on an “as needed” basis; and Type D - Rental Agreements where no entrance fee is paid and market rates are charged for health care services on an “as needed” basis.

As described in Note K, the Company offers various forms of contracts (occupancy agreements) with independent living residents which require an entrance fee to be paid upon moving into most of its communities. The nonrefundable portion of the occupancy fee paid represents contract revenues to be recognized over the expected length of time a resident will reside in the community’s independent living.

When a resident signs a “90% Minimum Refund Plan,” a “60% Minimum Refund Plan,” or an “Endowment Plan” occupancy agreement, the Company charges the resident a monthly service fee for services provided to these residents at the billing rates that the Company establishes from time to time. This service fee is charged for the programs and services provided by the community, including emergency call and fire alarm system monitoring, cable, utilities, daily meal services, weekly housekeeping services, pest control, grounds keeping, social and wellness programming, parking, and priority admission status to healthcare units. Healthcare services are not included.

When a resident signs a “90% Refund Traditional Plan,” a “70% Refund Traditional Plan,” or a “Tailored Plan” occupancy agreement with Evergreen Woods Retirement, LLC, the monthly service fee charged to the resident includes the same services as the other plans plus nursing care in the Health Center for ninety (90) cumulative days without relinquishing their independent living residence. Charges for nursing care beyond the ninety days are dependent upon relinquishing the independent living residence. Therapy, pharmaceutical and medical supplies, personal laundry, and equipment rental during the healthcare stay are not included, and additional charges at current market rates would be charged for these.

Senior Living Communities, LLC and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Continued)
December 31, 2019 and 2018


NOTE N - REVENUE (Continued)

For all Type D contracts, a nominal, nonrefundable community fee is charged to the resident upon entrance into the community and separate service fees are charged monthly. There is no refund due to a resident upon moving out. This contract type is currently offered at the communities operated by Ridgecrest Retirement, LLC; Litchfield Retirement, LLC; and Summit Hills, LLC. Under these contracts, a monthly service fee is charged for use of the premises and for the programs and services offered by the community.

For all Healthcare Rental Agreements, which are with residents who move into assisted living, memory care, or skilled nursing, a monthly service fee is charged for use of the premises and for the programs, services, and healthcare provided by the community, including direct care, emergency call and fire alarm system monitoring, cable, utilities, daily meal services, housekeeping services, grounds keeping, social and wellness programming, and local transportation.

The occupancy fee paid by residents gives the resident initial right to the premises and access to additional goods or services though the monthly service fee. At those communities where Type B, Type C and Type D contracts are offered, monthly service fees charged to residents under Type B or Type C contracts are lower than those associated with Type D contracts. For Type B and Type C contracts, the fee associated with the occupancy agreement is higher on units with a higher percentage refund. The nonrefundable portion of the occupancy fee for these contracts is effectively an advance payment on those future services provided by the monthly service fees. As such, a portion is be recognized to revenue as those services are provided. For Type D contracts and Healthcare Rental Agreements, the resident receives the services at a standalone selling price for the service.

Monthly services fees are a component of revenue associated with the contracts with residents. The Company recognizes revenue from monthly services fees as services are provided to residents under guidance that applies to contracts that are monthly with the option to renew. Revenue is recognized at the billing rates that the Company establishes from time to time or at the rates established by Medicare for providing services to residents whose costs of care are to be reimbursed under the various programs Medicare administers. Ancillary Income is recognized from services provided to residents on an “as needed” basis and for which a separate charge is assessed.

The nonrefundable portion of the occupancy fees paid represents contract revenues to be recognized over the expected length of time a resident is expected to live in the community’s independent living. The Company recognizes revenue by amortizing a portion of the nonrefundable entrance fee paid in advance for services to be provided over the residents’ expected period of residency. The nonrefundable portion is recorded as deferred revenue and is adjusted as it becomes nonrefundable under the terms of the occupancy agreements.
