The company anticipates receiving proceeds of approximately $1.3M and recognizing a pre-tax gain of $300k on the transaction. Fourth quarter 2009 annualized results of operations for the three communities resulted in approximately $12M of revenue and $4M of EBITDAR.

The triple net operating lease has an initial term of 15 years, with one 15-year renewal option.

New Service Line

Dallas-based TDIndustries is rolling out a new knowledge database for lifecycle solutions: the TD Lifecycle Intelligent Network System(TDLINKS). The first component, ServiceLINK, launched this week. The system is web-based and enables TD to store and track the life of a building, including mechanical systems, automation and controls, and the maintenance and operations and service histories of each customer down to the specific equipment level. Through this program, technicians have on-site access to real-time and historical data and can evaluate proper service building-by-building.

It also links technicians; for example, one can capture an image of a faulty connection and share information with colleagues who can help troubleshoot a technical issue immediately. TDLINKS will enable TD’s contact center and dispatch operations to match the most appropriate technicians for emergency services based on the time of day, geographic location, and history of a building and its systems. Approximately 300 GPS systems have been installed in TD’s trucks and 275 handheld units are with technicians in the field. TD has been testing the TDLINKS platform since late Dec ‘09 with a full rollout to service customers this month. The eService portal will launch later this summer.
