Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure

Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. (Company) announced today that, pursuant to an Asset Purchase Agreement, dated December 2, 2013, it acquired the operating assets of On Assignment, Inc.'s Allied Healthcare staffing division for an aggregate purchase price of $28.7 million, subject to immaterial post-closing adjustments. Excluded from the transaction were the accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued compensation of the business being acquired. Prior to closing, the purchase price of $28.7 million was adjusted downward from $32.4 million by $3.7 million because On Assignment, Inc. retained substantially all of the working capital of such division. The Company used $24.6 million in cash on hand and $4.5 million from borrowings under its current revolver facility with Bank of America, N.A. to pay the purchase price and approximately $400,000 in transaction costs. Following the transaction, Cross Country has approximately $21 million of remaining availability on its revolver loan.

Based on unaudited financial statements, the acquired Allied Healthcare business generated $39.5 million in 2012 revenues and is projected to generate approximately $41 million of revenues for all of 2013. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to Cross Country's 2014 earnings by approximately $0.04 per diluted share. The Allied Healthcare business has 84 branch-based employees and makes placements in more than 125 specialties from 23 branch offices. During the first nine months of 2013, the Allied Healthcare business had approximately 800-850 billable temporary employees on assignment per week, the equivalent of approximately 600-650 full-time equivalents. Key managers from the business will continue to lead the growth of the acquired business.

The foregoing description does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Asset Purchase Agreement filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form 8-K.
