PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Cohen, Placitella and Roth, PC is
investigating claims on behalf of investors who purchased Forest Oil,
Incorporated ("Forest Oil" or "Company") (NYSE: FST) stock between October 3,
2013 and February 26, 2014, inclusive. The investigation concerns whether
Forest Oil and certain of its officers and/or directors disseminated material
false and/or misleading information to investors in violation of Sections
10(b), and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Forest Oil is an independent oil and gas company that acquires, explores for,
develops, and produces oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids. On October
3, 2013, the Company announced that its credit risk dropped to the lowest
point in more than two years due to its $1 billion sale of oil and natural gas
assets. In stark contrast, and without warning, after the market's close on
February 25, 2014, the Company disclosed disappointing fourth quarter 2013
earnings results. Quarter-over-quarter revenue from oil and gas sales
declined 43% to $88.49 million, down from $154 million, falling $96.31 million
short of analyst expectations. The Company also disclosed that its estimates
of proved reserves were only 625 billions of cubic feet equivalent (bcfe),
over half of the amount it disclosed as of December 31, 2012. As a result,
earnings per share, too, fell far short of market expectations.

Further, in its annual report, filed on February 26, 2014, Forest Oil warned
investors that it could fail to comply with requirements under one of its
borrowing agreements. This, the Company disclosed, could cause both $800
million in bond debt to come due, and, in turn, default. On this news, on
February 26, 2014, the Company's stock price closed at $2.01 per share, down
38% from the prior day's close.
