Westlake Village-based LTC Properties announced a 15.7 percent increase in net income to $20.6 million, or 53 cents per diluted share, for the quarter ended Dec. 31.
Revenues increased from $30.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2015 to $34.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, attributed in part to higher investing activities.
