(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

On December 2, 2013, Industrial Services of America, Inc. (the "Company") and Algar, Inc. ("Algar") entered into a Management Services Agreement (the "Management Agreement"). Under the Management Agreement, Algar will provide the Company with day-to-day senior executive level operating management supervisory services. Algar will also provide business, financial, and organizational strategy and consulting services, as the Company's board of directors may reasonably request from time to time.


The Management Agreement gives Algar the right to appoint the Company's President and an additional executive officer of the Company. The Company is required to reimburse Algar on a monthly basis for its pre-approved expenses, as defined in the Management Agreement, including expenses associated with the salaries of its executive appointees and employees. The Management Agreement also provides that the Company's board of directors will increase to up to seven members, giving Algar the right, subject to certain limitations, to cause the appointment up to three members, one of whom will serve as Vice Chairman. Under the Management Agreement, Algar will be paid a bonus in an amount equal to 10% of any year-over-year increase in the Company's pre-tax income during the term.

The term of the Management Agreement is effective December 1, 2013 and extends through December 31, 2016, subject to earlier termination upon mutual agreement or upon circumstances set forth in the agreement.

Subject to shareholder approval and restrictions on exercisability set forth in a Stock Option Agreement entered into on December 2, 2013 by the Company and Algar (the "Stock Option Agreement"), the Company granted Algar an option to purchase a total of 1,500,000 shares of Company common stock at an exercise price per share of $5.00.

Sean Garber, Algar's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, formerly served as the Company's President from 1997 to 2000. Mr. Garber is also Algar's largest shareholder. Algar is located in Louisville, Kentucky and specializes in the procurement and sale of new and used auto parts as well as automotive and metal recycling.

In connection with the Management Agreement, Mr. Garber and Orson Oliver, the Company's interim Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the board of directors, have received an Irrevocable Proxy from each of Harry Kletter, K & R, LLC and the Harry Kletter Family Limited Partnership (collectively, "Kletter"), which provides Mr. Oliver and Mr. Garber joint voting authority over the shares owned by Kletter, approximately 25.3% of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock. Kletter is the Company's largest shareholder. Messrs. Oliver and Garber have entered into a separate agreement in which, among other things, they agree to vote their proxies in favor of matters approved by the Company's board of directors.

Under the Management Agreement, the Company and Algar have agreed to use their best efforts to effect a business combination between them as soon as is reasonably practicable.

The foregoing description of the Management Agreement, including the Stock Option Agreement attached thereto as Attachment A, is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Management Agreement, including the Stock Option Agreement, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to this report and incorporated herein by reference.

The Company expects Algar to appoint Mr. Garber to the Company's board of directors during the first quarter of 2014; Mr. Garber is expected to be appointed Vice Chairman at that time.
