AAC Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:AAC) , through its subsidiary AAC Rhode Island Acquisition Sub, LLC, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Clinical Services of Rhode Island, Inc. (“CSRI”), a provider of intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment services, for $665,000 in cash and $1,335,000 worth of restricted shares of AAC Holdings’ common stock. The acquisition, which is subject to certain closing conditions such as the assignment of certain contracts and the receipt of certain licenses necessary to operate the business, is expected to close during the second quarter of 2015.

CSRI operates three outpatient treatment facilities located in Greenville, Portsmouth and South Kingstown, Rhode Island. CSRI co-owners Reinhard Straub and Peter Letendre each have over 25 years experience in the addiction and mental health fields. Following the acquisition, Mr. Straub will continue as Clinical and Business Development Liaison for American Addiction Centers, Inc., and Mr. Letendre will serve as CEO and Clinical Director Rhode Island Operations. CSRI generated revenue of approximately $1.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $0.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2014.

Michael Cartwright, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AAC Holdings, noted, “Extending our outpatient center network is a critical and necessary component of the addiction treatment services we provide our clients. CSRI will join our newly licensed outpatient center in Las Vegas, Nevada and a new outpatient center under construction in Arlington, Texas, giving us the ability to provide a full continuum of care and transition clients as they become ready to leave our inpatient centers and step down their treatment.”
