New York, April 03, 2020 -- Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has completed a periodic review of the ratings of Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. and other ratings that are associated with the same analytical unit.

Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) (the "Company") today announced that on March 10, 2020, the Company was notified by the New York Stock Exchange of its noncompliance with continued listing standards because the average closing price of shares of its common stock over a prior 30 consecutive trading day period had fallen below $1.00 per share, which is the minimum average closing price per share required to maintain listing on the NYSE.
