Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On April 23, 2014, Align Technology, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Align"), announced a $300 million stock repurchase program (the "Stock Repurchase Program"). On April 28, 2014, as part of the Stock Repurchase Program, Align entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Contract") with Goldman, Sachs & Co. ("Goldman Sachs"), to repurchase an aggregate of approximately $70 million of Align's common stock. Under the ASR Contract, Align will make an initial payment of approximately $70 million in the aggregate to Goldman Sachs and will receive an initial delivery of approximately one million shares of common stock. The exact number of shares Align will repurchase under the ASR Contract will be based generally upon the average daily volume weighted average price of Align's common stock during the repurchase period, less a discount and subject to adjustments pursuant to the terms and conditions of the ASR Contract. At settlement, under certain circumstances, Goldman Sachs may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to Align, or under certain circumstances, Align may be required either to deliver shares of common stock or to make a cash payment to Goldman Sachs. Final settlement of the transactions under the ASR Contract is expected to occur no later than approximately three months from April 29, 2014. The terms of the accelerated share repurchases under the ASR Contract are subject to adjustment if the Company were to enter into or announce certain types of transactions or to take certain corporate actions.
The ASR Contract contains the principal terms and provisions governing the accelerated share repurchases, including, but not limited to, the mechanism used to determine the number of shares that will be delivered, the required timing of delivery of the shares, the circumstances under which Goldman Sachs is permitted to make adjustments to valuation and calculation periods and various acknowledgements, representations and warranties made by Align, on the one hand, and Goldman Sachs, on the other hand, to one another.

The foregoing description of the ASR Contract is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the ASR Contract, a copy of which will be filed with the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2014.

A copy of the press release announcing Align's entry into the ASR Contract is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
