FTE Networks Is Awarded New Multi-Year Services Contract in Five Markets With Leading Fortune 100 Company

Contract Awarded Due to Consistent High Quality Work Performance Rating

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwired - May 26, 2016) - FTE Networks, Inc. (OTCQB: FTNWD) ("FTE" or the "Company"), a leading network infrastructure solutions provider in the technology and telecommunications vertical, announced today that the Company has been awarded another contract expanding its Inside Plant (ISP) line of business footprint in five markets. FTE was awarded the contract by a Fortune 100 global telecommunications company due to FTE's consistent high quality work performance rating.

The commercial-based project will deliver state-of-the-art customer driven infrastructure services that include building penetration, fiber cable placement and all other critical infrastructure needs. The two-year engagement is slated to begin in July. The contract extends FTE's Kansas and Missouri markets and adds three new markets, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, to the ISP line of business.

"This contract represents our continued growth and the increasing number of organizations that have recognized the advantage of our services and deployment techniques," said Mr. Anthony Sirotka, Chief Business Development Officer of FTE Networks. "We are excited to be bolstering our operating relationships with some of the largest telecommunications carriers in the industry. Entering into these new agreements and expanding into three new markets is a testament to FTE's consistent delivery of high quality work. Time and time again our teams exceed customer demands for safety performance, speed to market and excellent craftsmanship. We believe that as customer driven demand increases for our end-clients, large markets like these can become a pinch-point for capacity throughput for a service provider."

"FTE is extremely pleased to have secured these multimillion-dollar engagements with our globally renowned partner," said Mr. Michael Palleschi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FTE Networks. "Our ISP line of business, which consistently executes at high margins, is experiencing significant growth as it continues to expand its geographic footprint while broadening our service offerings throughout our existing contracts. The recent influx of new business is directly in line with FTE's strategic initiatives of positioning us alongside renowned market influencers in order to better fit the needs of customers throughout the rapidly evolving network infrastructure market. Going forward, management expects this trend to continue, as we project an increase in both overall revenue and in the amount of projects on which FTE will be working."
