1Figures before Non-Recurring Charges related to the Transformation Plan and data library impairment



PARIS, France - May 12th 2017 - CGG (ISIN: FR0013181864 - NYSE: CGG), world leader in Geoscience, announced today its 2017 first quarter unaudited results.

Commenting on these results, Jean-Georges Malcor, CGG CEO, said:

"As indicated in March, we entered into an intense phase of our financial restructuring process. There is a separate communication on the status of negotiations today.

Now focusing on operational matters, the stable first quarter EBITDA is an encouraging result in a still competitive market environment. Equipment sales dropped to a particularly low level, while GGR delivered a stable activity with multi-client revenue of $72 million driven by a high cash prefunding rate at 110%. In a continued low but stabilized pricing environment, the marine production rate reached a record level of 98%.

As expected, cash flow generation was hampered by the very weak positive working capital effect compared to the first quarter of 2016. The Group nevertheless benefited from nearly $400 million of liquidity at the end of March.

Alongside the financial restructuring, all our teams remain fully focused on further optimizing our cost structure, while delivering the best technical and operational solutions to our clients. We confirm for 2017 our vision of operating results in line with 2016 with downward pressure on cash flow generation."

Recent developments and post-closing events

  • The Board of directors closed the accounts a second time on April 27, 2017. The Document de référence and report on Form 20-F for 2016 were respectively filed with the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) respectively on May 1, 2017. Considering the progress of the negotiations of the financial restructuring of the company and the timeline of the options contemplated, it appeared that reclassifying the financial debt as current was the most appropriate accounting treatment according to IAS 1. This accounting reclassification does not question the going concern assumption, comforted by the planned main actions successfully implemented as of April 27, 2017 and it does not make the $2,682 million of finance debt classified as current liabilities immediately payable (because CGG never breached its financial covenants) nor does it reduce their maturity below 12 months. This classification and judgement were maintained for March-end financial statements.
  • On April 20, CGG and its partner Eidesvik formally established the Global Seismic Shipping AS JV, jointly owned in equal parts for the implementation of a new ownership set up for our seismic fleet. CGG will continue to charter the Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius from the new JV and will charter the Geo Coral (from the second quarter 2017 onwards), Geo Caribbean and Geo Celtic vessels, as the charters of other vessels it currently operates expire. CGG will thus continue operating a five 3D vessel fleet with the same maritime and seismic operational management (see March 27 2017 dedicated presentation).

Going concern

As of May 9, 2017, in light of the Group's cash flow projections based on the current operations and in the absence of any acceleration of the Group's financial debt reimbursement discussed below, CGG had enough cash liquidity to fund its operations until at least March 31, 2018 provided that some specific actions, which are subject to negotiation with other parties, are successfully implemented during this period. As of May 9, 2017, the main specific actions had already been successfully implemented, namely the proactive management of maritime liabilities and the fleet ownership changes.

The Group is, however, facing material uncertainties that may cast substantial doubt upon its ability to continue as a going concern, including likely future non-compliance of certain ratios included in maintenance covenants, and other limitations contained in the outstanding (drawn) Revolving Credit Facilities and the Term Loan B. If such non-compliance of ratios were to occur and not be timely remediated, it could trigger, including through the cross-acceleration clauses of the Senior Notes indentures, the immediate acceleration of repayment of substantially all of CGG's senior debt. CGG would not then have sufficient cash liquidity to fulfill these reimbursement obligations, nor - in the current economic environment and given its financial situation - would CGG be in a position to refinance its debt.

In the recent past, CGG requested and obtained several consents from its Revolving Credit Facilities, Term Loan B and Nordic lenders, particularly related to the disapplication of maintenance covenants as of December 31, 2016 (obtained before 2016 year-end) and to the appointment of a 'mandataire ad hoc' (a French facilitator for creditor negotiations) to support the financial restructuring process that CGG is engaged in with the aim of significantly reducing debt levels. The proposed debt reduction would involve the conversion of unsecured debt into equity and the extension of the secured debt maturities.

Looking forward, in the context of the discussions with the lenders about the financial restructuring necessary to allow the Group to face its capital structure constraints, management intends particularly to obtain the appropriate standstill agreement or covenant relief to prevent any future events of default on the Group's credit agreements. The disapplication of maintenance covenants as of March 31, 2017 was thus requested and obtained shortly before March 31, 2017. If discussions with lenders are unsuccessful, and to avoid the risk of any liquidity shortfall or an accelerated reimbursement of the Group's financial debt, the Company will consider all available legal options to protect the Group's operations while negotiating the terms of its financial restructuring.

Having carefully considered the above, the Company concluded on May 9, 2017 that preparing the Q1 2017 consolidated financial statements on a going concern basis is an appropriate assumption.

  • Subsurface Imaging & Reservoir revenue was $86 million, down 21% year-on-year and 11% sequentially. Large reprocessing contracts were completed this quarter and volume of data processed decreased, as expected, given lag time between the acquisition and processing stages of data.

GGR EBITDAs was $80 million, a 50.8% margin.

GGR Operating Income was $18 million, an 11.6% margin. The multi-client depreciation rate totaled 66%, leading to a library Net Book Value of $854 million at the end of March, split between 89% offshore and 11% onshore.

GGR Capital Employed was stable at $2.3 billion at the end of March 2017.

Equipment Total Revenue was $32 million, down 56% year-on-year and 61% sequentially. External sales were $26 million, down 59% year-on-year and 46% sequentially. Land and marine equipment sales were still impacted by low demand in a particularly weak market this quarter.

Land equipment sales represented 58% of total sales, compared to 72% in the first quarter of 2016, with downhole business strengthening.

Marine equipment sales represented 42% of total sales, compared to 28% in the first quarter of 2016, only driven by repair and maintenance.

Equipment EBITDAs was $(9) million, a margin of (26.9)%.

Equipment Operating Income was $(16) million, a margin of (50.6)%, sharply down sequentially due to much lower volumes and despite the mitigation from the further reduction in the activity's breakeven point, after the full implementation of our Transformation Plan.

Equipment Capital Employed was stable at $0.6 billion at the end of March 2017.

Contractual Data Acquisition Total Revenue was $67 million, down 25% year-on-year and up 29% sequentially.

  • Contractual Marine Data Acquisition revenue was $45 million, down 23% year-on-year and up 27% sequentially. Our vessel availability rate was 91%. This compares to 94% in the first quarter of 2016 and 90% in the fourth quarter of 2016. Our vessel production rate was 98%. This compares to 94% in the first quarter of 2016 and 97% in the fourth quarter of 2016. Year-on-year, the lower revenue is explained by the fleet reduction from c. 6 vessels in Q1 2016 to 5 vessels in Q1 2017, with stable allocation to marine contractual activities at 71%. Sequentially, the higher revenue can be explained by the increased fleet allocation to Contractual Data Acquisition at 71%, compared to 62% in Q4 2016, coupled with the outstanding fleet operational performance.
  • Land and Multi-Physics Data Acquisition revenue was $22 million, down 29% year-on-year and up 33% sequentially. Market activity remains low.

Contractual Data Acquisition EBITDAs was $(25) million, a margin of (37.9)%.

Contractual Data Acquisition Operating Income was $(39) million, a margin of (58.0)%. Contractual Data Acquisition activities continued to suffer from a still competitive market.

The contribution from Investments in Equity was $3 million and can notably be explained by the positive contribution from the Argas JV.

Contractual Data Acquisition Capital Employed was stable at $0.4 billion at the end of March 2017.

The Non-Operated Resources Segment comprises, in terms of EBITDAs and Operating Income, the costs relating to non-operated resources (mainly Marine assets). The capital employed for this segment includes non-operated Marine assets and provisions relating to the Group Transformation Plan.

Non-Operated Resources EBITDAs was $(8) million.

Non-Operated Resources Operating Income was $(20) million. The amortization of excess streamers and lay-up costs has a negative impact on the contribution of this segment.

Non-Operated Resources Capital Employed was down to nil at the end of March 2017, following the launch of the Global Seismic Shipping AS JV with Eidesvik. The book value of the assets transferred to this new company has been classified under "asset for sale" at quarter-end.

First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Group Total Revenue was $249 million, down 20% year-on-year and 24% sequentially. The respective contributions from the Group's businesses were 63% from GGR, 10% from Equipment and 27% from Contractual Data Acquisition.

Group EBITDAs was $29 million, an 11.5% margin, and $(1) million after $30 million of Non-Recurring Charges (NRC) related to the Transformation Plan. Excluding Non-Operated Resources (NOR), and to focus solely on the performance of our active Business Lines, Group EBITDAs was $37 million.

Group Operating Income was $(67) million, a (26.9)% margin, and $(97) million after $30 millions of NRC. Excluding NOR, and to focus solely on the performance of our active Business Lines, Group Operating Income was $(47) million.

Equity from Investments contribution was $3 million and can notably be explained by the positive contribution made by the Argas JV this quarter.

Total non-recurring charges were $30 million:

  • $18m of Group Transformation Plan charges, including $12m due to maritime liabilities
  • $12 million of Financial restructuring costs

Net financial costs were $48 million:

  • Cost of debt was $46.8 million. The total amount of interest paid during the quarter was $44 million
  • Other financial items were a negative contribution of $1.6 million

Total Income Taxes were $2 million.

Group Net Income was $(145) million after NRC.
After minority interests, Net Income attributable to the owners of CGG was a loss of $(144) million / €(136) million. EPS was negative at $(6.51) / €(6.12).

Cash Flow

Given the low positive change in working capital, Cash Flow from operations was $34 million compared to $238 million for the first quarter of 2016. After cash Non-Recurring Charges, the Cash Flow from operations was $(11) million.

Global Capex was $68 million, down 23% year-on-year and 25% sequentially.

  • Industrial capex was $13 million, up 44% year-on-year and down 54% sequentially
  • Research & Development capex was $7 million, down 29% year-on-year and 23% sequentially
  • Multi-client cash capex was $48 million, down 31% year-on-year and 9% sequentially

After the payment of interest expenses and Capex and before cash NRC, Free Cash Flow was at $(74) million compared to $118 million for the first quarter of 2016. After cash NRC, Free Cash Flow was at $(120) million.

Balance Sheet

On February 24, 2017, we discharged and satisfied in full the indenture in respect of the $8.3 million outstanding principal amount of our 7.75% senior notes due 2017 to allow for the appointment of a mandataire ad hoc.

During the quarter, CGG entered into agreements to substantially reduce the cash burden of the charter agreements in respect of three cold-stacked vessels and one seismic vessel in operation. As part of the agreements to settle those amounts on a non-cash basis, CGG issued $70.7 million of its 2021 Notes bearing a 6.5% interest to the relevant charter counterparties.

As of March 31, 2017, the Nordic credit facility was classified as "Liabilities directly associated with the assets classified as held for sale" as it is part of the "Global Seismic Shipping" transaction. This reclassification results in a reduction of the gross debt of the Group by $182.5 million, corresponding to the outstanding principal amount of loans under the Nordic credit facility as of March 31, 2017.

Consistent with the financial statements as of December 31, 2016, and considering the progress of the negotiations of the financial restructuring of the company and the timeline of the options contemplated, it appears that reclassifying the financial debt as a current liability was the most appropriate accounting treatment according to IAS 1 for the financial statements authorized for issue by the Audit Committee of May 9, 2017. This accounting reclassification does not question the going concern assumption, comforted by the planned main actions successfully implemented as of May 9, 2017, and it does not make the $2.601 billion of finance debt classified as current liabilities immediately payable - because CGG never breached its financial covenants - nor does it reduce the maturity below 12 months.

Group gross debt was $2.726 billion at the end of March 2017. Available cash was $391 million and Group net debt was $2.335 billion versus $2.312 billion by year-end 2016.

The net debt to shareholders equity ratio, at the end of March 2017, was 240% compared to 206% at the end of December 2016.

The Group's liquidity amounted to $391m at the end of March 2017.

The lenders under our French and US Revolving Credit Facilities, Term Loan B and Nordic credit facility agreed to disapply the maintenance covenants (leverage ratio and coverage ratio) at March 31, 2017. At end of March 2017, the net debt/EBITDAs ratio was 6.9x.

  1. Converted at the average exchange rate of U.S.$1.063 and U.S.$1.090 per € for the periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
  2. As a result of the July 20, 2016 reverse stock split the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share has been adjusted retrospectively. Number of ordinary shares outstanding has been adjusted to reflect the proportionate change in the number of shares.
  3. As our net result was a loss, stock-options, performance shares plans and convertible bonds had an accretive effect; as a consequence, potential shares linked to those instruments were not taken into account in the dilutive weighted average number of shares, or in the calculation of diluted loss per share.
