Form 8-K/A for ADVANCED ENERGY INDUSTRIES INC


21-Jun-2013

Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets, Financial St


Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.

As previously reported on the Form 8-K filed on April 11, 2013 (the "Original Form 8-K"), Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. ("Advanced Energy" or the "Company") acquired Refusol Holding, GmbH ("Refusol Holding") through a stock purchase made by the Company's indirect wholly-owned subsidiary AE Holdings GmbH (formerly Blitz S13-103, GmbH). Refusol Holding owns all of the shares of Refusol GmbH and its subsidiaries (collectively and together with Refusol Holding, "Refusol"). A copy of the Sale and Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") was filed as an exhibit to the Original Form 8-K. This Form 8-K/A amends the Original Form 8-K to provide financial statements and pro forma financial statements required by Item 9.01 of Form 8-K.

RefuSol's 3-phase string inverter products brings new technology to Advanced Energy and expands Advanced Energy's product offering and broadens its geographic reach to position it as a global supplier. While Advanced Energy has focused on higher power levels and central inverters for commercial and utility applications to date, 3-phase string inverters provide Advanced Energy the opportunity to target and better serve the needs of commercial customers with inverters in the 8kW to 24kW range, ideally suited for rooftop and potentially larger applications. This product line offers several advantages for commercial applications including a compelling price/performance ratio, ease of installation, improved uptime and quick serviceability and flexibility and modular design. We believe 3-phase string is becoming the inverter technology of choice for this portion of the market.

Under the terms of the Agreement, the shareholders of Refusol received 59 million Euros in cash, Advanced Energy assumed 9 million Euros of debt and had a working capital reduction of 1.8 million Euros. The preliminary base price is subject to a post-closing adjustment based on confirmation of the financial statements of RefuSol effective as of the closing date. Additional earn-out cash and stock consideration, up to a maximum of 10 million Euros total, is payable to Seller if certain financial targets are met by Advanced Energy's Solar Energy Business Unit and RefuSol, on a combined basis, at the end of the twelve (12) calendar months following April 1, 2013.

(a) Financial Statements of Business Acquired Refusol Holding's audited consolidated financial statements, including the report of independent public accounting firm, as of and for the year ended December 31, 2012 are attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference herein.
