Barclays 2012 CEO Energy/Power Conference

September 5, 2012 7:45 a.m. ET


Brian Hanson - President and Chief Executive Officer


Unidentified Speaker

Well, good morning everyone and welcome today to the 26 th Annual Barclays CEO Energy Conference. I hope everyone has found yesterday productive, I am sure today will be equally productive, if not more. So kicking off the presentations this morning is Brian Hanson, the CEO of ION Geophysical. Brian was named CEO in December of 2011, he previously served as the company's CFO from May 2006.

We like the seismic part of the business, we like ION’s stock which we think has considerable upside at the exploration cycle as it gains momentum. Prior to joining ION, Brian was with Fisher Scientific, Alliance Imaging, and Culligan Water Conditioning. Please welcome back to the CEO Energy Conference and speaking for the first time as CEO, Brian Hanson.

Brian Hanson

Thanks, James. It’s a pleasure to be here this morning to talk about ION. We have to get our necessary forward-looking statements disclosure out of the way. So today what I want to talk a little bit about is first, walkthrough a little bit of an overview on the company for those of you who are not familiar with ION. We are going to talk a little bit about the basis of our strategy and then we will cover some highlights for 2012. A quick snapshot of financial performance and then we can open it up for some Q&A.
