* Revenues slip, partly hurt by strong C$
TORONTO, Feb 23 (Reuters) - Extendicare Real Estate Investment Trust EXE_u.TO, a long-term care provider, said on Tuesday it returned to quarterly profit, while revenues were pressured by a stronger Canadian dollar.
The company, which operates 258 seniors’ care centers in Canada and the United States, said it earned C$15.7 million, or 21 Canadian cents per unit, compared with a loss of C$4.4 million, or 7 Canadian cents a share, a year ago.
Revenue slipped to C$522.5 million from C$559.7 million, hurt by a stronger Canadian dollar versus the greenback.
With cash on hand totaling C$134.0 million at year-end, Extendicare said it plans to refinance some of its debt and fund the redevelopment of existing properties.
