FDD Disclosure: “The tables do not include data regarding 34 FirstLight Home Care businesses that have been operating for 12 months or longer.

These circumstances include the following: 6 FirstLight Home Care businesses experienced significant delays in obtaining state licensure; 7 FirstLight Home Care businesses were operated by individuals who experienced serious medical issues (such as cancer or a major surgery); 2 FirstLight Home Care businesses were operated by individuals who dissolved their management team (for instance, through divorce) within the first year of operations; and 19 FirstLight Home Care businesses which did not follow the required 2 full-time person model.

There were a total of 118 FirstLight Home Care businesses in operation for these periods as of December 31, 2017, and which had been in operation for a minimum of 12 months as of the issuance date of this Disclosure Document. 

The Item 19 Businesses consist of 84 of the franchised FirstLight Home Care businesses that were in operation during the entire Reporting Period and do not include the 34 locations which were atypical due to personal circumstances (described in the paragraph above).
