Forum Energy Technologies Announces Mandatory Conversion of 9.00% Convertible Senior Secured Notes

  • Approximately $123 million, or 48%, of 9.00% Convertible Senior Secured Notes due August 2025 to convert into approximately 4.5 million shares of FET common stock
  • Over $11 million reduction in annualized interest payments

Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: FET) today announced the satisfaction of the mandatory conversion requirements under its 9.00% Convertible Senior Secured Notes due August 2025 (the “2025 Notes”). In connection with the conversion, $122.8 million or 47.8% of the 2025 Notes will convert into approximately 4.5 million shares of FET common stock on January 3, 2023, with a settlement date of January 5, 2023. The remaining approximately $134.2 million in aggregate principal of the 2025 Notes are not subject to any optional or further mandatory conversion provisions. FET’s annualized interest payments will decline by over $11 million following the conversion.

As adjusted for the conversion and the recently announced sale leaseback, FET’s net debt would have been approximately $93 million as of September 30, 2022, or 2.0 times trailing twelve months Adjusted EBITDA. Availability under FET’s ABL credit facility would remain $127 million as of that date. See Table 1 for Adjusted EBITDA to Net Income reconciliation.

Neal Lux, President and Chief Executive Officer, remarked, “First, I would like to welcome our newest shareholders to the FET family. In addition, I want to thank FET’s employees for their hard work and dedication to achieve this important milestone.

“From the third quarter 2020 to the third quarter 2022, and including our recently announced sale-leaseback transaction, we have reduced our net debt by approximately $215 million. As we look ahead, we will continue to execute our strategy of delivering technology that makes energy production more efficient, safer and cleaner. The strong macro environment and our ability to capture market share position us to increase revenue and profit margins. Importantly, the reduction in cash interest associated with this debt conversion will bolster our free cash flow generation. The future is brighter than ever for FET.”

(1) The company believes that the presentation of EBITDA is useful to investors because EBITDA is an appropriate measure of evaluating the company's operating performance and liquidity that reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the business, strengthening the balance sheet, repurchasing the company's securities and making strategic acquisitions. In addition, EBITDA is a widely used benchmark in the investment community.
(2) Foreign exchange, net primarily relates to cash and receivables denominated in U.S. dollars by some of our non-U.S. subsidiaries that report in a local currency, and therefore the loss has no economic impact in dollar terms.
