Allison Transmission unveils new 9800 Oil Field Series engineered for unrivaled performance under pressure

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Allison Transmission Holdings Inc.
(NYSE: ALSN) has introduced a new product line engineered to meet the evolving
demands of the global energy market. A leading provider of fully automatic
transmissions in the oil and gas industry for more than 60 years, Allison
unveiled the 9800 Oil Field Series (OFS) and its inaugural 9826 OFS model in
Indianapolis today. The new 9800 OFS delivers the horsepower and durability
needed for energy market technologies like hydraulic fracturing.

“In today’s oil and gas industry, particularly in North America, extended duty
cycles are the norm, and idle equipment is the enemy,” said Michael Headly,
Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Sales and Service for Allison
Transmission. “Allison brings more than six decades of industry expertise and
field-tested insight to the new 9800 OFS line.”

Advances in fracturing and pressure pumping have driven U.S. oil production to a
25-year high, positioning the United States as the world leader in natural gas
extraction from previously-inaccessible shale formations. Global markets are
embracing these technologies as well, developing infrastructure and expertise to
tap massive global shale oil and gas reserves.

Like all Allison products, the new OFS line will be backed by an extensive
global service and support network.

“Rig operators are under constant pressure to improve days-to-depth and boost
recovery factors,” said Chris Vargo, Director of Global Off-Highway Marketing,
Sales and Service for Allison Transmission. “That means delivering reliable,
continuous power through the rig – failure is not an option. Confidence in your
equipment is important, as is knowing that the manufacturer stands behind it.
That is the value of an Allison transmission and our commitment with the new
9800 OFS models.”
