Item 7.01: Regulation FD Disclosure.

Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (the “Company”) is seeking, subject to market and other conditions, commitments from its existing lenders for a $70 million partial exercise of the incremental term loan facility under its existing senior secured credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”).  The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the borrowings under the incremental term loan facility, together with borrowings under its revolving credit facility and cash on hand, to redeem all of its outstanding 8.0% Senior Notes due 2016 (the “Notes”) in December 2013.
          
The redemption of the Notes is contingent on obtaining necessary commitments for the incremental term loan facility and receipt of requisite consents to related amendments to  the Credit Agreement, which the Company cannot assure that it will be able to obtain.  If the Company does not obtain the necessary commitments or required consents, the Company may not redeem all or any portion of the outstanding Notes.    

Forward-Looking Statements

This current report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements relating to future events, including statements related to the proposed incremental term loan facility, receipt of the related requisite consents, and the proposed use of the proceeds therefrom, together with other cash and borrowings, to redeem the Notes.  Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are uncertain and subject to risks. Such uncertainties and risks include the risks and uncertainties identified in the Risk Factors section of the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), as may be modified or supplemented by our subsequent filings with the SEC.  These uncertainties may cause actual future results or outcomes to differ materially from those expressed in the Company’s forward-looking statements.   Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. The Company does not undertake to update its forward-looking statements except as required under the federal securities laws.
