THORNTON, CO--(Marketwired - Dec 15, 2015) - Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTI), a developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules integrated into the Company's EnerPlex™ series of consumer products, announced today that its Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for, and convened on December 15, 2015, was adjourned to December 18, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time at the Company's offices, 12300 North Grant Street, Thornton, Colorado 80241.

The special meeting has been adjourned due to the lack of the requisite quorum, which the Company believes was caused by a technical issue involving proxy vote processing.

During the period of the adjournment, stockholders holding shares as of the record date of November 6, 2015, are entitled to and are being requested to vote.
