Sunrise Senior Living Inc. disclosed on Monday that it lost $16 million in the first quarter of 2010. That compares to a wider loss of $18 million in the first quarter of last year.
The net loss was $0.29 per fully diluted share in the first quarter. That compares with a loss of $0.36 per fully diluted share in 2009, according to the company’s report. During the first quarter of 2010, operating revenue at the senior living company fell to $355.2 million, down from $374.7 million during the same time in 2009.
