FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug 30, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS) today lowered its expected third quarter revenue guidance. The company expects third quarter revenue to be in the range of $88 million to $92 million versus its previous guidance of $95 million to $100 million, due to further weakness in the semiconductor market.

"However, orders in the other markets that we serve are in the ranges previously anticipated. Additionally, we have been pleased with the positive response from the solar market regarding the newly introduced Solaron(TM) Inverter for the Solar Energy market."
