Baker Hughes distributed the following communication to certain of its suppliers.

Dear Supplier,

On Sept. 28, 2015, Halliburton and Baker Hughes announced that the companies will market for sale additional businesses in connection with Halliburton’s pending acquisition of our company.

As a result of this announcement, it is important to note the following:

Keep in mind the businesses to be marketed for sale will continue to be a part of Baker Hughes until the deal closes. The divestiture sales are expected to be completed around the same timeframe as the closing of the pending acquisition by Halliburton. So far, there is no agreement with any competition enforcement authority as to the adequacy of the proposed divestitures.

And finally, remember that until the pending acquisition by Halliburton closes, Baker Hughes and Halliburton remain competitors.

We appreciate your partnership, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

Best regards,

David Fischer

Vice President, Global Supply Chain
