(NYSE: NES) ("Nuverra" or the "Company") announced today that it received written notice on November 25, 2015 from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") that the Company had fallen below the NYSE's continued listing standards because the Company's average market capitalization has been less than $50 million over a consecutive 30 trading-day period and its last reported shareholders' equity was less than $50 million.

If the plan is not accepted, the Company will be subject to the delisting process and suspension from the NYSE.
The NYSE notification does not affect the Company's business operations or its SEC reporting requirements. The Company's common stock will continue to trade on the NYSE during the 18-month plan period, subject to the Company's compliance with other listing standards.
