CGGVeritas CEO, Jean-Georges Malcor, commented:

“Our Performance Plan continues to bear fruit with the recovery of our marine operations, as illustrated by the very good utilization rate of our fleet since the beginning of the year. Combined with the sustained level of activity in Processing & Imaging, and a more favorable seasonality in Land Acquisition, our marine performance enabled Services to deliver a positive operating income this quarter (typically the weakest quarter in the year), despite the reduced contribution from multi-client sales. Sercel continued to deliver an excellent performance.

"The commercial visibility is improving: exploration spending is expected to increase by more than 15% this year, and tendering activity in marine acquisition is firming up for the fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013.

"CGGVeritas remains at the forefront of innovation. We launched in early June the new generation of Sercel streamers, Sentinel ® RD with a reduced diameter. We continue to capitalize on the commercial success of BroadSeis TM and CGGVeritas is returning to the US waters of the Gulf of Mexico with StagSeis TM , a major innovation in marine acquisition and imaging, with its new multi-client survey called IBALT.

"Within this context, I am confident in our ability to reach our 2012 objectives.”

1 Effective January 1, 2012, CGGVeritas changed the presentation currency of its consolidated financial statements from the euro to the U.S. dollar to better reflect the profile of an industry with revenues, costs and cash flows primarily generated in U.S. dollars. The first and second quarter 2011 figures shown in this press release have been restated as if the change in the Group presentation currency had been effective since January 1, 2004 (IFRS transition). In the context of our new presentation of cash indicators, first and second quarter 2011 EBITDAs and multi-client Capex figures have been restated.

Second Quarter 2012 Results
  • Group revenue was $831 million, up 11% year-on-year and up 6% sequentially.
  • Group operating income was $85 million, a 10% margin:
  • Sercel margin was at 32% driven by sustained demand for land and marine high-resolution surveys.
  • Services operating income was positive at $19 million mainly due to our improved operational efficiency in marine and to a more favorable seasonality for our Land activity.
  • The contribution from equity investees was at $10 million, mainly related to the good performance of Argas.
  • Net income was at $34 million, compared to a loss of $38 million in the second quarter 2011.
  • Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDAs) was at $228 million, up 53% year-on-year and up 8% sequentially.
  • The operational cash flow was $104 million, down 36% year-on-year, due to opposite changes in working capital during the quarter. The increase in working capital is mainly related to the high level of invoicing in June both at Sercel and Services.
  • Total Capex was at $179 million this quarter, industrial capex was at $97 million and multi-client capex reached $82 million as 17% of the fleet was dedicated to multi-client programs.
  • After payment of interests and capital expenditure, net free cash flow was negative at $129 million.
  • Backlog was at $1.3 billion at the end of June 2012, stable year-on-year, up in Services at $1.130 billion and down at Sercel at $170 million.

Post Closing Events
  • Start of IBALT, our new multi-client GoM survey, using StagSeis the innovative solution for marine acquisition and imaging.
  • Signature of a strategic alliance with SMNG, the main Russian geophysical company.

Positive Outlook for 2012 confirmed
  • Group revenue expected to grow 10%-15%.
  • 2011-2012 performance plan: $150 million additional operating income target confirmed.
  • Industrial Capex:
    • As planned, 2/3 of original industrial capex spent on H1 (including the upgrade of the Champion vessel).
    • H2 capex could potentially be revised up to take advantage of the positive market cycle.
  • Multi-Client Cash Capex:
    • Marine at around $250 million including StagSeis and Land at around $130 million.
    • Prefunding confirmed at 80%-85%.
  • Positive Free Cash Flow.

Sercel

Revenue was up 7% year-on-year and down 18% sequentially compared to the historically high first quarter 2012. Sercel particularly benefited from a high level of land equipment deliveries. The first two Sercel 428 XL high-channel-count crews equipped with the new Sercel Giga Transverse technology, which offers increasing seismic data acquisition capabilities and transmission rate, successfully started their operations in the Middle East. The commercial success of UNITE, Sercel’s wireless system, is continuing, particularly with a growing penetration in the North American market.

In marine equipment, Sercel launched the Sentinel ® RD, the latest generation of its Sentinel solid streamer, at the recent European geophysical convention. Fully compatible with the Seal 428, the Sercel Sentinel ® RD has a reduced diameter with a weight gain of 15%, allowing reduced water drag and easier storage onboard seismic vessels. The first deliveries of this new equipment started in June. Finally, internal sales were at $54 million and represented 19% of Sercel total revenue.

Services

Revenue was up 13% both year-on-year and sequentially. Improving marine operational performance, a more favorable land acquisition seasonality and a sustained activity in Processing & Imaging offset lower multi-client sales this quarter.
  • Marine contract revenue was up 19% year-on-year. It was up 53% sequentially with a better utilization rate and the slightly positive impact of price increases. The improvement in our marine operational performance continued with both our vessel availability rate2 and production rate3 at 91%. A large part of our fleet was transiting to the North Sea where five vessels are in operation currently. The commercial success of BroadSeis was confirmed with 2/3 of the fleet acquiring BroadSeis surveys at the end of June. The Oceanic Vega and Oceanic Sirius successfully completed the largest high-resolution wide-azimuth survey ever conducted in the Mexican waters of the Gulf of Mexico. They were redeployed at the end of June in the US waters of the Gulf of Mexico to acquire the first StagSeis multi-client survey, the new marine acquisition solution of CGGVeritas which provides full wide-azimuth coverage and unrivalled long offsets, designed to illuminate the complex subsalt geologies.
  • Land contract revenue was up 38% compared to an exceptionally low second quarter 2011, due to a stronger seasonality. Sequentially, it was down 9%. 5 crews operated in North America and 13 crews in the rest of the world with 5 operating in transition zones and in shallow waters especially in Asia-Pacific. Our operations in Saudi Arabia reached a record level of productivity and, in North Africa, CGGVeritas is returning to Algeria after 15 years of absence. Worldwide demand for high-channel-count crews, for shallow water and OBC operations continues to be sustained.
  • Processing, Imaging & Reservoir revenue was up 7% both year-on-year and sequentially. Demand for high-end processing is strengthening, sustained by high-resolution land and marine acquisitions and by the growth of BroadSeis. Activity remained at high levels in our major international centers and backlog was at record levels at the end of June.
  • Multi-client revenue was down 17% year-on-year and down 24% sequentially. This decrease was mainly related to marine after-sales, after two consecutive quarters with a particularly high level of after-sales in the Gulf of Mexico, ahead of the June lease sale. Capex was $82 million with a low prefunding of 55%, as the formal commitments of some clients were postponed to the next quarter. With a depreciation rate averaging 74%, this quarter, the Net Book Value at the end of June 2012 stands at $561 million compared to $536 million at the end of March 2012.
    • Marine multi-client revenue was at $52 million, down 34% year-on-year. Prefunding revenue was at $20 million and after-sales were at $32 million. Capex was $41 million and was concentrated on offshore Brazil and Angola where CGGVeritas started a multi-client program on block 22. With a depreciation rate at 67% this quarter, the Net Book Value at the end of June 2012 stands at $411 million.
    • Land multi-client revenue was at $35 million, up 34% year-on-year. Prefunding revenue was at $25 million and after-sales were at $10 million. Capex was $41 million dedicated to the pursuit of our Marcellus and Alaska programs. With a depreciation rate at 84%, the Net Book Value at the end of June 2012 stands at $150 million.

2 - The vessel availability rate, a metric measuring the structural availability of our vessels to meet demand; this metric is related to the entire fleet, and corresponds to the total vessel time reduced by the sum of the standby time, the shipyard time and the steaming time (the “available time”), all divided by total vessel time.

3 - The vessel production rate, a metric measuring the effective utilization of the vessels once available; this metric is related to the entire fleet, and corresponds to the available time reduced by the operational downtime, all then divided by available time.

(1) Corresponding to the half-year amount in euros less the first quarter amount in euros.

(2) As our 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 dilutive weighted average number of shares or in the calculation of diluted loss per share.

(3) Convertible bonds had an accretive effect (increase of our earning per share); 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 income per share.

1) Effective January 1, 2012, we changed the presentation currency of our consolidated financial statements from the euro to the U.S. dollar to better reflect the profile of our revenues, costs and cash-flows, which are primarily generated in U.S. dollars, and hence, to better present the financial performance of the Group. As a change in presentation currency is a change of accounting policy, all comparative financial information has been restated into U.S. dollars. The currency translation adjustment was set to nil as of January 1, 2004 on transition to IFRS and has been re-presented on the basis that the Group has reported in U.S. dollars since that date.The functional currency of the parent company remains the euro. The currency translation adjustment resulting from the parent company is presented in other reserves.

Main restatements related to the change in the presentation currency from euro to U.S. dollar are as follows (in millions):

  Historical consolidated financial statements as of Dec.31, 2011 in euros   Historical consolidated financial statements of Dec.31, 2011 converted into U.S. dollars (a)   Restatements (b)   Restated consolidated financial statements as of Dec.31, 2011 to U.S. dollars
