Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

In May 2018, Align Technology, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Align"), announced a $600 million stock repurchase program (the "Stock Repurchase Program"). Align currently has $100.0 million remaining available for repurchase under the Stock Repurchase Program. On April 30, 2021, Align entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement (the "ASR Contract") with Goldman Sachs & Co LLC ("Goldman Sachs") to repurchase the remaining $100 million of Align's common stock authorized under the Stock Repurchase Program. Under the ASR Contract, Align will make an initial payment of $100 million to Goldman Sachs and will receive an initial delivery of approximately 134,300 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 May 3, 2021. The terms of the accelerated share repurchases under the ASR Contract are subject to adjustment if Align enters into or announces 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 acknowledgments, representations and warranties made by Align, on the one hand, and Goldman Sachs, on the other hand, to one another.

Align intends to issue a press release announcing Align's entry into the ASR Contract on May 3, 2021. A copy of the press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.
