Despite the challenges, the fundamentals of our business remain strong and we remain focused on execution and creation of long term shareholder value," said Samir Manji, Amica's Chairman & CEO. "The Company continued its track record for growing MARPAS as occupancy remained steady in the face of increasing competitive pressures in many of our communities. We will build on the learning captured in Fiscal 2014, and have fine tuned our core strategies accordingly."
