Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $113.4 million compared to $116.0 million in the third quarter of 2012. This $2.6 million decrease in revenue was driven primarily by the strategic reduction of our customer base in 2012. After this strategic reduction of our customer base, third quarter of 2013 revenue was almost neutral compared to a year ago.

Alliance's Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) decreased 7.5% to $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2013 from $41.7 million in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding $2.0 million of rent expense from the sale/leaseback transaction completed in November 2012 and a one-time gain on a cash legal settlement of $2.2 million received in the third quarter of 2012, Adjusted EBITDA would have increased by 2.7% to $40.6 million in the third quarter of 2013 from $39.5 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Alliance's net loss, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), totaled ($2.1) million in the third quarter of 2013 and ($1.2) million in the third quarter of 2012.

Net loss per share on a diluted basis, computed in accordance with GAAP, was ($0.19) per share in the third quarter of 2013 compared to ($0.12) per share in the third quarter of 2012. In the third quarter of 2013, net loss per share on a diluted basis was impacted by ($0.60) due to loss on extinguishment of debt, impairment of intangible assets for a strategically closed center in our imaging division, restructuring charges, transaction costs and differences in the GAAP income tax rate compared to our historical income tax rate. In the third quarter of 2012, net loss per share on a diluted basis was impacted by ($0.12) in the aggregate due to restructuring charges, mergers and acquisitions transaction costs and differences in the GAAP income tax rate from our historical income tax rate.

Cash flows provided by operating activities totaled $32.6 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to $37.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. In the third quarter of 2013, capital expenditures were $8.7 million compared to $6.6 million in the third quarter of 2012. Alliance will continue to allocate resources through targeted investments designed to support and move forward the long-term goals of the business.

Alliance's net debt, defined as total long-term debt (including current maturities) less cash and cash equivalents, decreased $21.3 million to $497.4 million at September 30, 2013 from $518.7 million at December 31, 2012. Cash and cash equivalents were $49.1 million at September 30, 2013 and $40.0 million at December 31, 2012. As a result of the Company’s successful term loan refinancing in June 2013, the Company’s net debt was increased by $12.4 million related to fees and expenses incurred and $3.2 million due to the change in the unamortized discount on the old and new term loans. The Company's net debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.36x for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2013 compared to 3.58x for the twelve month period ended a year ago. The Company's total debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.70x for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2013 compared to 4.09x for the twelve month period ended a year ago.

“Our ability to raise $70 million of incremental borrowings under our existing senior secured term loan highlights the ongoing improvement in our business performance and the increasing strength of our balance sheet. The financing represents another positive step in our ongoing effort to maximize the efficiency of our capital structure, while providing the flexibility and cash flow necessary to execute upon our strategic initiatives, including ongoing reduction of our debt. In fact, as a result of our strong free cash flow generation, we have paid down $139 million of debt and consistently lowered our total leverage and net leverage ratios over the past eight quarters,” stated Howard K. Aihara, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Full Year 2013 Guidance

The Company also reaffirmed its full year guidance for 2013 revenue and Adjusted EBITDA and updated its guidance for cash capital expenditure and decrease in long-term debt, net of the change in cash and cash equivalents (before investments in acquisitions and debt financing costs):

ALLIANCE HEALTHCARE SERVICES, INC.
ADJUSTED EBITDA
(in thousands)

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company’s management, represents GAAP net income (loss) before: interest expense, net of interest income; income taxes; depreciation expense; amortization expense; net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests; non-cash share-based compensation; severance and related costs; restructuring charges; fees and expenses related to acquisitions, costs related to debt financing, non-cash impairment charges, and other non-cash charges included in other (income) expense, net, which includes non-cash losses on sales of equipment. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or “GAAP.”

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA, and believes it is a useful measure for investors, for a variety of reasons. Management regularly communicates its Adjusted EBITDA results and management’s interpretation of such results to its board of directors. Management also compares the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA performance against internal targets as a key factor in determining cash incentive compensation for executives and other employees, largely because management feels that this measure is indicative of how our diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses are performing and are being managed. The diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology industry continues to experience significant consolidation. These activities have led to significant charges to earnings, such as those resulting from acquisition costs, and to significant variations among companies with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense) and differences in taxation and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. In addition, management believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, the varying methodologies for determining non-cash share-based compensation expense among companies and from period to period, and the subjective assumptions involved in that determination, excluding non-cash share-based compensation from Adjusted EBITDA enhances company-to-company comparisons over multiple fiscal periods and enhances the Company’s ability to analyze the performance of its diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses.

Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA has other limitations as an analytical financial measure. These limitations include the fact that Adjusted EBITDA is calculated before recurring cash charges including interest expense, income taxes and severance costs, and is not adjusted for capital expenditures, the replacement cost of assets or other recurring cash requirements of the Company’s business. Adjusted EBITDA also does not reflect any cost for equity awards to employees and does not exclude income attributable to noncontrolling interests. In the future, the Company expects that it may incur expenses similar to the excluded items discussed above. Accordingly, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the Company’s non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. Management compensates for the limitations of using Adjusted EBITDA as an analytical measure by relying on the Company’s GAAP results to evaluate its operating performance and by considering independently the economic effects of the items that are or are not reflected in Adjusted EBITDA. Management also compensates for these limitations by providing GAAP-based disclosures concerning the excluded items in the Company’s financial disclosures. As a result of these limitations, however, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), as calculated in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to any other GAAP measure of operating performance.

The reconciliation from net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is shown below:

ALLIANCE HEALTHCARE SERVICES, INC.
SELECTED STATISTICAL INFORMATION
IMAGING DIVISION SAME STORE VOLUME

The Company utilizes the imaging division same store volume growth as a historical statistical measure of the MRI and PET/CT imaging procedure growth at its hospital customers in a specified period on a year-over-year basis. The imaging division same store volume growth is calculated by comparing the cumulative scan volume at all hospital locations and other healthcare services providers in the current year quarter to the same quarter in the prior year. The group of customers whose volume is included in the scan volume totals is those that received service from Alliance for the full quarter in each of the comparison years. A positive percentage represents growth over the prior year quarter and a negative percentage represents a decline over the prior year period. Alliance measures each of its major imaging modalities, MRI and PET/CT separately.

The imaging division same store volume growth/(decline) for the last three calendar quarters ended September 30, 2013 is as follows:
