PARIS, France – May 17 th 2018 CGG (ISIN: FR0013181864 – NYSE: CGG), world leader in Geoscience , announced today its 2018 first quarter unaudited results.

Commenting on these results, Sophie Zurquiyah, CGG CEO, said:

“Our first quarter results are in line with expectations, with solid revenue growth and an improvement in our EBITDAs margin compared to the first quarter of 2017. These results continue to confirm an upward trend initiated in 2017 that is bringing improved volumes to GGR and Equipment. Contractual Data Acquisition activities remain challenged by low demand and deteriorated price conditions.

In the current context of strengthening oil prices, we observe a gradual market improvement, even as the major oil companies remain very cautious in their spending. In this environment, we confirm our revenue growth and EBITDAs margin targets for 2018.

The restructuring of CGG was successfully completed at the end of February and our balance sheet has been restored. My ambition, as the new CEO, and with the commitment of all our teams, is to return CGG to a business of sustainable and profitable growth, paving a new path to success for all our shareholders, clients and employees .”

Post-closing events

 

    April 24th: Completion of the first lien refinancing

CGG S.A. announced the issuance by its wholly-owned indirect subsidiary, CGG Holding (U.S.) Inc., of $300 million in aggregate principal amount of 9.000% First Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2023 and €280 million in aggregate principal amount of 7.875% First Lien Senior Secured Notes due 2023. These new first lien senior secured notes represent a total principal amount of $645m at a weighted average coupon of 8.40%. The cumulated savings related to such refinancing over the period running up to February 2021 (original non-call period) amount to c. $70m.

 

    April 26th: Renewal of the governance

CGG’s Board of Directors, meeting on April 26, 2018, elected Philippe Salle as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Sophie Zurquiyah took up her position of CEO of the Group and was appointed director by the general meeting on the same day. Since the beginning of the year, CGG Board of Directors has completed the process of renewing its governance with the appointment of 6 new Directors.

Transitory first time application of IFRS 15

The application of IFRS 15 does not result in any significant change to the Group’s revenue recognition policies but for multi-clients pre-commitments. CGG’s preliminary interpretation of the new standard was that the historical method, relying on percentage of completion principles, was the best accounting solution to timely provide a fair vision of the industrial and financial performance of the Company and was compliant with the new IFRS standard. However, our auditors’ technical panel eventually concluded early 2018 that it was not the case.

Following this determination, CGG investigated the merits and the practicability of an alternative revenue recognition policy, based on two performance obligations: one service with revenues to be recognized over time and weighting on average between 80%-95% of total obligations, and one corresponding to the final processed data with revenues to be recognized only upon delivery. This alternative revenue recognition policy has, however, not been endorsed by the Group’s auditors and the regulators of the financial markets where the Group’s securities are listed. In addition, some other seismic players have decided to implement IFRS 15 in Q1 2018 through a revenue recognition policy for pre-commitments based on a single performance obligation and deferring the recognition of revenues upon delivery of final processed data.

In that context and in the absence of a finalized IFRS 15 accounting policy, CGG decided to present a dual approach in the Group’s first quarter 2018 results:

 

(i) one set of figures (the “Segment Figures”) corresponding to the figures used for internal management reporting purposes and produced in accordance with the Group’s historical method (percentage of completion) and

 

(ii) a second set of figures (the “IFRS” figures) in line with the accounting practice adopted by some other seismic players as described above, with pre-commitment revenue recognized in full only upon delivery of the final data.

CGG intends, through further discussions with its auditors and with the regulators, to continue advocating for the IFRS 15 compliance of the alternative revenue recognition policy described above based on the two distinct performance obligations contained in these contracts. This approach would allow the Company going forward to base its financial communication only on its IFRS accounts rather than on multiple sets of figures. The Company aims to fix a definitive approach with its auditors and the regulators prior to the release of the half-year 2018 financial statements.

Equipment Segment EBITDAs was $(3) million, a margin of (4.0)%.

Equipment Segment Operating Income was $(10) million, a margin of (15.1)% notably due to an unfavorable mix product.

Equipment Capital Employed was stable at $0.6 billion at the end of March 2018.

Contractual Data Acquisition Segment Revenue was $61 million, down 8% year-on-year and up 48% sequentially.

 

    Marine Contractual Data Acquisition revenue was $29 million, down 35% year-on-year and up 192% sequentially.

Our vessel availability rate was 93%. This compares to 91% in the first quarter of 2017 and 82% in the fourth quarter of 2017. Our vessel production rate was 96%. This compares to 98% in the first quarter of 2017 and 97% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The decrease in revenue can be explained by the higher dedication to multi-client surveys, as 44% of the fleet was dedicated to multi-client programs versus 29% in the first quarter of 2017 (75% in the fourth quarter of 2017) and different type of contract this quarter. In Q1 2017, we were executing a large contract for Pemex with high-end multi-source vessel setup.

 

    Land and Multi-Physics Data Acquisition revenue was $32 million, up 48% year-on-year and 3% sequentially. Land and Airborne continued to recover from a very low point in Q1 2017.

Contractual Data Acquisition Segment EBITDAs was $(25) million.

Contractual Data Acquisition Segment Operating Income was $(34) million. Contractual Data Acquisition activities continued to suffer from a competitive market in marine. Weather downtimes and more specifically an earthquake in Papua New Guinea affecting Land surveys operations, further impacted activities.

The equity from investments contribution can mainly be explained by the positive contribution from the ARGAS and SBGS JVs this quarter.

Contractual Data Acquisition Capital Employed was stable at $0.3 billion at the end of March 2018.

The Non-Operated Resources Segment comprises, in terms of EBITDAs and Operating Income, the costs relating to non-operated resources.

Non-Operated Resources Segment EBITDAs was $(7) million, including the restart costs of one vessel (Caribbean).

Non-Operated Resources Segment Operating Income was $(7) million.

The equity from investments includes the impact of 50% of the Global Seismic Shipping (GSS) JV, which we own with Eidesvik. Seven vessels were transferred to GSS in Q2 2017: three are in operations for CGG, three are cold-stacked and one will come back in operations during Q2 2018.

Non-Operated Resources Capital Employed was stable at $0.1 billion at the end of March 2018.

(4) As a result of the February 21, 2018 CGG SA capital increase via an offering of preferential subscription rights to existing shareholders, the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share for 2017 has been adjusted retrospectively. The number of ordinary shares outstanding has been adjusted to reflect the proportionate change in the number of shares.
(5) As our 2017 net result was a loss, stock options and performance shares plans had an anti-dilutive effect; as a consequence, potential shares linked to those instruments were not taken into account in the diluted weighted average number of shares or in the calculation of diluted loss per share.
