Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

In connection with the completion of its acquisition of Staffing Solutions Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Seaton"), on June 30, 2014 TrueBlue, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, and PNC Capital Markets LLC, as joint lead arrangers and joint book runners, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association and PNC Capital Markets LLC, as co-documentation agents, and the lenders that are parties thereto (the "Revolving Credit Facility"). The Revolving Credit Facility amends and restates the Company's Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of September 30, 2011 (as subsequently amended) and replaces Seaton's existing credit facility.

The Revolving Credit Facility provides for a secured revolving credit facility of up to a maximum of $300 million, matures in five years and provides for the following:

• Borrowing Base. The amount the Company can borrow under the Revolving Credit Facility is calculated according to a formula that is based upon the sum of (a) 90\% of eligible billed receivables, plus (b) the lesser of (i) 85\% of eligible unbilled accounts receivable and (ii) 15\% of all eligible receivables, plus (c) $17,437,500 for Eligible Real Property; minus (d) certain reserves, including a reserve for temporary worker payroll.

• Accordion. The Revolving Credit Facility contains an accordion feature which, subject to lender approval, provides the Company with the option to increase the total amount of the facility up to $400 million.

• Loan fees and interest. Under the terms of the Revolving Credit Facility, the Company pays a variable rate of interest on the outstanding principal balance, a fee on outstanding letters-of-credit and an unused commitment fee. These rates are based on LIBOR or the Base Rate (prime rate/daily 1-month LIBOR), plus an applicable spread based on Excess Liquidity as a percentage of the total commitments, as set forth below:

Excess Liquidity as a percentage of Base Rate LIBOR Letters the Total Commitments Revolving Loans Revolving Loans of Credit Greater than 75\%* .25\% 1.25\% 1.25\% Greater than 50\% to 75\% .50\% 1.50\% 1.50\% Greater than 25\% to 50\% .75\% 1.75\% 1.75\% Equal to or less than 25\% 1.00\% 2.00\% 2.00\%

* Top tier pricing is available only if the Company achieves a Funded Debt to Consolidated EBITDA ratio of less than 1.5:1.0.

"Excess Liquidity," is the amount equal to (i) unused borrowing capacity under the Revolving Credit Facility plus (ii) certain unrestricted cash and cash equivalents.

An unused commitment fee rate of (i) 0.375\% when utilization is less than 25\%, or (ii) 0.25\% when utilization is greater than or equal to 25\%, is also applied against the unused portion of the Revolving Credit Facility. Under the terms of the Revolving Credit Facility, letters-of-credit are priced at the margin in effect for LIBOR loans plus a fronting fee of 0.125\%. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

• Collateral. Obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility will be secured by substantially all of the Company's and its domestic subsidiaries' personal property and the Company's headquarters located in Tacoma, Washington.

On June 30, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the consummation of the Seaton acquisition, including the Revolving Credit Facility, which is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K. Item 2.01. Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

The cash purchase price for the acquisition was $310 million, subject to certain working capital and other adjustments. A portion of the purchase price was funded through the entry into the Revolving Credit Facility described in Item 1.01 with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and collateral agent, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, and PNC Capital Markets LLC, as joint lead arrangers and joint book runners, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association and PNC Capital Markets LLC, as co-documentation agents, and the lenders that are parties thereto.
