Third Quarter Results by Segment

Drilling & Subsea

Drilling & Subsea revenue in the third quarter 2012 was $204 million, an increase of $6 million, or 3%, from the third quarter 2011. The Drilling Technologies product line revenue grew 3% over the third quarter 2011 on higher sales of pipe handling equipment despite a decrease in the North America rig count. The Subsea Technologies product line revenue decreased 6% in the third quarter 2012 over third quarter 2011 on delayed orders for our PerryTM work class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

Production & Infrastructure

Production & Infrastructure revenue in the third quarter 2012 was $144 million, an increase of $11 million, or 8%, from the third quarter 2011. Forum's Production Equipment product line generated record revenue in the third quarter 2012, an increase of more than 25% over the third quarter 2011, on strong demand for production and processing systems and an expanded customer base. The Valve Solutions product line revenue also increased significantly from the prior-year quarter on strong market activity in the midstream transmission and petrochemical industries.

Review and Outlook

Cris Gaut, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Forum, remarked, "Forum continued our pattern of revenue growth. Demonstrating the benefits of our balanced portfolio, the Production Equipment and Valve Solutions product lines delivered good results, which helped offset the impact of a declining North America rig count on some of our other product offerings.

"Forum is performing well. Our Drilling and Flow Equipment product lines are facing demand softness as many E&P operators have exhausted their 2012 budgets and our pressure pumping customers continue to work through excess inventories of consumable parts. The outlook for our Subsea Technologies product line remains robust and we are now beginning to receive the vehicle orders for delivery over the next two years that we have been anticipating.

"We are pleased to welcome the employees of Syntech Technology, Inc. and Wireline Solutions, LLC, our two most recent acquisitions, to Forum."

Forum provides diluted earnings per share guidance for full year 2012 of $1.83 to $1.88.
