NAPLES, FL --(Marketwired - March 02, 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, multi-million-dollar contract with a leading telecommunications carrier. The contract is expected to commence on April 1, 2016 and is valued at over $45 million dollars over the next three years with the potential for additional service offerings in existing and new markets.

Under the terms of this contract, FTE will be providing its Fiber Optic Infrastructure Services by expanding the carriers' current fiber to the home (FTTH) offering. FTE will open new offices in Texas and Oklahoma and expand its current office locations in Kansas and Missouri. The relationship between FTE and the carrier was established in the beginnings of FTE. 

Michael Palleschi, CEO and Chairman of the Board of FTE Networks said, "We are very pleased to continue our time-honored relationship with this premier telecommunications carrier and delve into new markets." He added, "Our work under this new contract is strategically important to FTE. Not only does it showcase our capabilities on the national stage, but it also allows us to penetrate new markets and execute on our growth initiatives while strengthening our relationship with our client."

This is the second major win for FTE in the last few weeks. Previously, FTE was awarded a contract with Edge Communications, which is valued at up to $100 million dollars over the next 36 months. "We have already begun work on the Edge project, which is going very well," added Palleschi. "Both of these projects add substantial new long term revenue streams and enable us to continue on our path to profitability in 2016."
