We are delighted to welcome the experienced operational leadership team and a clinical staff of over 600 dedicated employees associated with Queen City Hospice to the Addus family. We share a common culture focused on compassionate, patient-centered care, and we look forward to a smooth integration of our operations. Importantly, we expect this transaction to be immediately accretive to our financial results.

"On December 1, 2020, we also completed the acquisition of SunLife Home Care, a personal care provider located in Tucson, Arizona, with approximately $2.6 million in annualized revenue. We are pleased to add the employees associated with SunLife Home Care to our existing Arizona operations and further expand our market presence. We have now completed four acquisitions in 2020, despite the challenges and disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our development team has done an outstanding job in executing our acquisition strategy, adding total acquired annualized revenues of approximately $85 million to date this year. With a strong acquisition pipeline and a solid financial position to support our continued growth, we look forward to the opportunities ahead for Addus to extend our market reach and create greater value for our shareholders," added Allison.

Addus funded the acquisitions through a combination of cash on hand and the Company's existing revolving credit facility, led by Capital One, N.A. as administrative agent.
