Alliance HealthCare Services Announces Reverse Split of Common Stock



  Alliance HealthCare Services Announces Reverse Split of Common Stock

Business Wire

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- December 12, 2012

Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (NYSE:AIQ) (the “Company” or “Alliance”), a
leading national provider of outpatient diagnostic imaging and radiation
therapy services, today announced a 1-for-5 reverse split of its common stock.
The reverse stock split will be effective December 26th at 5:01 p.m. Eastern
Time and Alliance’s common stock will begin trading on the NYSE on a
split-adjusted basis when the market opens on Thursday, December 27th, 2012.

Larry C. Buckelew, Chairman of the Board and interim Chief Executive Officer,
explained, “Thanks to the ongoing hard work from the entire Alliance team, we
are pushing our strategic growth initiatives forward. Since undertaking the
interim CEO role in June, we have worked together to implement substantial
changes. The continued cost savings improvements and focus on efficiency have
translated to improving quarterly results. We continue to strategically
enhance our long-term value proposition and our strong cash generation will
allow us to make smart investments in our business. We have proactively
addressed our debt obligation and the increased financial flexibility this
affords enhances our financial profile. We believe the market hasn’t fully
recognized these improvements and that our stock remains significantly
undervalued. This reverse stock split is the right decision at this time and
should better position Alliance in the capital markets. We are in the process
of working to transfer our listing to the NASDAQ Global Market, and believe
that a higher share price will better enable us to do so in the near term
while making our shares more attractive to some institutional investors."

At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every five shares of
Alliance’s issued and outstanding common stock will be automatically converted
into one issued and outstanding share of common stock, without any change in
the par value per share. All fractional shares will be rounded up to the
nearest whole share.

The reverse stock split will reduce the number of shares of Alliance’s common
stock outstanding from approximately 52.9 million to approximately 10.6
million. Proportional adjustments will be made to Alliance’s stock options and
equity-compensation plans. The reverse stock split will have no effect on the
Company's authorized shares of preferred stock.

The Company’s common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol
“AIQ” and will continue to be subject to the indicator .BC until such time as
the Company has regained compliance with all applicable continued listing
standards.

When the reverse split takes effect, shareholders holding certificated shares
or shares through a brokerage account will have their shares automatically
adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split. The issuance of new stock
certificates will not be required, although shareholders may obtain a new
certificate from their broker or the Company's transfer agent, if they so
choose.
