Item 8.01: Other Events.

On December 12, 2016, Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its receipt of a letter (the “Expression of Interest”) describing a non-binding proposal from Tahoe Investment Group Co., Ltd. (“Tahoe”), formerly known as Fujian Thai Hot Investment Co., Ltd, to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of the Company that are not currently owned by THAIHOT Investment Company Limited (“THAIHOT”), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Tahoe, at a cash purchase price of $9.60 per share. The Board of Directors of the Company has authorized a Special Committee, comprised solely of directors not affiliated with Tahoe, to evaluate the proposal. The Special Committee has engaged independent legal counsel and intends to engage an independent financial advisor to assist in its evaluation of such proposal. In addition, the Special Committee has agreed to waive a provision in the Governance, Voting and Standstill Agreement, dated as of March 29, 2016, by and among the Company, Tahoe and THAIHOT that prohibits THAIHOT and its affiliates from proposing to acquire additional shares of the Company’s common stock. The waiver is for the limited purpose of submitting the Expression of Interest to the Special Committee. The Expression of Interest and the press release announcing the Company’s receipt thereof are attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and 99.2, respectively.
