Blue Equity, LLC Key Developments

Blue Equity, LLC Terminates Management Agreement with Industrial Services of America, Inc

Under the terms of a Management Services Agreement that Industrial Services of America Inc. and Blue Equity, LLC entered into on April 1, 2013, Blue Equity provided the company with day-to-day senior executive level operating management supervisory services. At the time the parties entered into the Management Agreement, the company issued 125,000 shares of its Common Stock to Blue Equity at a per share purchase price of $4.00, and granted options to purchase 1,500,000 shares of its Common Stock to Blue Equity at an exercise price per share of $5.00, subject to shareholder approval. At the annual meeting of shareholders of Industrial Services of America Inc. on July 16, 2013, shareholders voted not to approve the options to purchase 1,500,000 shares that had been granted to Blue Equity, LLC, and the options terminated. Following the failure of the company's shareholders to approve the option grant, Blue Equity delivered a letter to the company stating that it was terminating the Management Agreement. Blue Equity has also demanded payment of a monthly management fee of $85,000, along with reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses, through July 31, 2013. In addition, Blue Equity has notified the company of its intention to exercise its right to cause the company to redeem the 125,000 shares of Common Stock for $4.00 per share, the price at which Blue Equity purchased those shares, payable on September 30, 2013.
