FTE Networks Secures Secondary Contract With Fortune 500 Company Valued up to $8 Million

Company Signs Third Major Contract in 2016, Totaling More Than $150 Million in Revenue

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwired - April 13, 2016) - FTE Networks, Inc. (OTCQB: FTNW) ("FTE" or the "Company"), a leading networking infrastructure service solutions provider in the technology and telecommunications vertical, announced today that it has been awarded a multi-year contract with a leading telecommunications carrier valued up to $8 million. This additional contract began on April 1, 2016 and will continue over the next three years.

FTE was awarded this ancillary contract as a follow-up to a previous engagement with the telecom leader. Under the terms of this contract, FTE will expand its operations to include Dallas/Ft. Worth and Oklahoma City. As previously announced, FTE will open offices in Texas and Oklahoma and expand its current office locations in Kansas and Missouri.

"FTE is pleased to announce that we will be expanding our scope of services with this premier telecommunications carrier," said Michael Palleschi, CEO and Chairman of the Board of FTE Networks said. "We are proud to have a very strong, long-standing relationship with this customer. Being awarded this high-margin contract is a testament to our employees, industry experience, and the high caliber of our services in the industry.

Mr. Palleschi continued, "This agreement is another major win for FTE. Since the beginning of 2016, we have successfully secured more than $150 million in new contract awards, much of which stems from industry leaders. These projects give FTE the ability to generate a long-term revenue stream, enabling us to continue on our path to profitability in 2016. We anticipate recognizing the revenue from these projects initially in the second half of 2016."

This contract is one of several which are being actively executed around the country. As business conditions warrant, additional local and regional offices will be opened to better serve existing customers and win new ones.
