Item 8.01 Other Events

On July 29, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a resolution to increase the authorization amount under the Company’s existing share repurchase program (the “Share Repurchase Program”) by $168.1 million to $200 million, which authorization amount includes the $31.9 million that remains available pursuant to the Board’s previous authorization. Repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program may be made from time-to-time in the public or private markets, through block trades, Rule 10b5-1 trading plans or other available means and may include the use of derivative contracts and structured and accelerated share repurchase agreements, all in accordance with applicable securities and other laws, including the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Share Repurchase Program has no time limit. There is no minimum number of shares required to be repurchased under the Share Repurchase Program, and the Share Repurchase Program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. The Company cannot predict when or if it will repurchase any shares as such repurchases will depend on a number of factors, including constraints specified in any Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. Information regarding share repurchases will be available in the Company’s periodic reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including forward-looking statements regarding the Share Repurchase Program. These statements are neither promises nor guarantees and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those stated or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, risks relating to the Company’s ability to implement and make appropriate, timely and beneficial decisions as to when, how and if to purchase shares under the Share Repurchase Program; and other risks described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
