Initial Public Offering of Common Stock

On September 30, 2009, Select completed its initial public offering of common stock at a price to the public of $10.00 per share. Select sold 30,000,000 shares in the offering. The total net proceeds to Select from the offering after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses were approximately $279.1 million. A portion of the net proceeds from the offering were used to repay indebtedness and to make payments to executive officers under the Long Term Cash Incentive Plan, and any remaining proceeds will be used to repay additional indebtedness or for general corporate purposes. Because the closing and receipt of cash occurred on September 30, 2009, the repayments of indebtedness and payment under the Long Term Cash Incentive Plan were not made until October. As a result, we have reported a significant amount of cash on our September 30, 2009 balance sheet and we have reflected the mandatory repayment due under our credit facility as a current portion of long term debt.

On October 28, 2009, the underwriters purchased an additional 3,602,700 shares pursuant to their over-allotment option at a price to the public of $10.00 per share. The total net proceeds to Select from the exercise of the over-allotment option were approximately $33.9 million. A portion of the net proceeds from the exercise of the over-allotment option were used to repay indebtedness, and any remaining proceeds will be used to repay additional indebtedness or for general corporate purposes.

Certain statements contained herein that are not descriptions of historical facts are "forward-looking" statements (as such term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). Because such statements include risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements due to factors including the following:

-- additional changes in government reimbursement for our services may result in a reduction in net operating revenues, an increase in costs and a reduction in profitability; -- the failure of our long term acute care hospitals, or LTCHs, to maintain their status as such may cause our net operating revenues and profitability to decline; -- the failure of our facilities operated as "hospitals within hospitals," or HIHs, to qualify as hospitals separate from their host hospitals may cause our net operating revenues and profitability to decline; -- implementation of modifications to the admissions policies for our inpatient rehabilitation facilities, as required to achieve compliance with Medicare guidelines, may result in a loss of patient volume at these hospitals and, as a result, may reduce our future net operating revenues and profitability; -- a government investigation or assertion that we have violated applicable regulations may result in sanctions or reputational harm and increased costs; -- future acquisitions or joint ventures may prove difficult or unsuccessful, use significant resources or expose us to unforeseen liabilities; -- private third-party payors for our services may undertake future cost containment initiatives that limit our future net operating revenues and profitability; -- the failure to maintain established relationships with the physicians in our markets could reduce our net operating revenues and profitability; -- shortages in qualified nurses or therapists could increase our operating costs significantly; -- competition may limit our ability to grow and result in a decrease in our net operating revenues and profitability; -- the loss of key members of our management team could significantly disrupt our operations; -- the effect of claims asserted against us or lack of adequate available insurance could subject us to substantial uninsured liabilities; -- the ability to obtain any necessary or desired waiver or amendment from our existing lenders may be difficult due to the current uncertainty in the credit markets; and -- the inability to draw funds under our senior secured credit facility because of lender defaults.
