Third Quarter Results by Segment

Drilling & Subsea

Drilling & Subsea revenue in the third quarter 2013 was $248 million, an increase of $45 million, or 22%, from the third quarter 2012 primarily due to the contribution of six acquisitions completed since the third quarter of 2012. Although the decline in the North America land rig count reduced the demand for drilling equipment and products in this region, orders continue to be strong outside of North America. Sales of subsea equipment increased over the prior year period as we delivered on the high order volumes received earlier in 2013. The Company continues to experience strong demand for drillable composite fracturing plugs and downhole protection systems.

Production & Infrastructure

Production & Infrastructure revenue in the third quarter 2013 was $143 million, a decrease of $1 million from the third quarter 2012. The segment benefited from increased demand for pressure pumping consumable products, partially offset by lower sales of valves. Demand for production and processing systems was little changed over the prior year.

Review and Outlook

Cris Gaut, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Forum, remarked, "Forum had a good third quarter. We had record revenue of $390 million and improved sequential operating income and margins. Our focus continues to be on adjusting our business for a flat U.S. land rig count, executing the delivery of orders to international markets, and integrating our recent acquisitions.
