Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement
On September 9, 2016, Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (the “Company”), along with three of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, AE Solar Energy, Inc., Sekidenko, Inc., and UltraVolt, Inc. terminated its Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association ("Wells Fargo") which provided for a secured revolving credit facility of up to $50.0 million (the "Credit Facility"), subject to a borrowing base calculation as discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.
