Geospace Technologies Corporation Announces Postponement Of Special Meeting Of Stockholders

Geospace Technologies (NASDAQ:GEOS) today announced that it has postponed its Special Meeting of Stockholders originally scheduled for July 16, 2013 to a date to be determined in the future, and that a new record date will be set.

Geospace Technologies Corporation (the “Company”) disclosed that one of its stockholders filed a complaint against it in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. The complaint alleged that the Company’s proxy statement materials, dated June 21, 2013, impermissibly bundled two distinct proposals into one proposal for consideration by its stockholders. While the Company continues to believe that its prior presentation of a single proposal was consistent with the applicable rules, the Company has decided to re-solicit the proxies of its stockholders to give the Company’s stockholders the opportunity to vote on two separate proposals. The Company’s stockholders will be notified of the new date and time of the Special Meeting of Stockholders.

Geospace Technologies Corporation designs and manufactures instruments and equipment used by the oil and gas industry to acquire seismic data in order to locate, characterize and monitor hydrocarbon producing reservoirs. The company also designs and manufactures non-seismic products, including industrial products, offshore cables, thermal printing equipment and film.
