CGG CEO, Jean-Georges Malcor commented:

« In a contrasting year with deteriorating market conditions in H2, CGG demonstrated resilience in its 2013performance. The successful integration of the Geoscience activities within CGG reinforces the Group in a growing and profitable market segment.

As announced during our Capital Market Day in December, we are rebalancing our portfolio of activities and implementing our 2014-2016 strategic roadmap focused on cash & profitability. The down-sizing of our Acquisition division, combined with the Acquisition market outlook, result in a $800 million impairment in our 2013 accounts. Concerning marine activity, our objective is to reduce the fleet from 18 to 13 3D high-end vessels by the end of 2016. Mid-February, the CGG Symphony has stopped operating and will be de-rigged. Concerning land activity, we have reinforced our partnership in the Middle East with ARGAS and we are restructuring our activities in North America. The restructuring costs across the 2014-2016 period are expected to remain below $100m.

In 2014, we expect Acquisition market conditions to remain stable with however a low Q1, as already indicated. Our priorities are to deliver our plan and stay focused on tight cash management, cost reductions, and operational and commercial efficiency.

In 2016, in unchanged market conditions, we confirm our objectives of revenues above $4bn and improved Ebit margin by 400bps compared to 2013. »

Equipment division total Revenue was $317 million, up 10% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012 and up 42% sequentially. This typically strong seasonal sales rebound, linked to the budgetary cycle of our customers, was mainly driven by land equipment sales. External sales were $270 million, up 10% year-on-year while internal sales represented 15% of total revenue. Sales in Russia were strong to prepare for the winter season while China and Middle East were also active.

Equipment division EBITDAs was $111.4 million, a margin of 35.1%.

Equipment division EBIT was $101.9 million, a margin of 32.1%.

Equipment division Capital Employed was $0.9 billion at the end of December 2013.

Acquisition division Total Revenue was $459 million, down 9% year-on-year and down 19% sequentially. This decrease is mainly due to challenging winter market conditions both in marine and land. External revenue was $315 million.

Marine Acquisition revenue was $363 million, stable year-on-year and down 21% sequentially. Our fleet utilization rate was down this quarter with availability rate at 83%. This was mainly due to planned dockings and large program awards delayed leading to commercial standby. Production rate remained at a satisfactory 90% level. 34% of the fleet was dedicated to multi-client programs. •Land and AirborneAcquisition revenue totaled $95 million, down 28% year-on-year and down 10% sequentially. Land winter activity was particularly low in North America this quarter, where we operated two land crews compared to six last year, hitting severely the bottom line. The conditions of the Airborne activity remain tight, with a mining market, still depressed.  

Acquisitiondivision EBITDAs was $12.5 million, a margin of 2.7%.

Acquisition division EBIT was $(61.4) million.

Acquisition division Capital Employed was $2.4 billion at the end of December 2013 after impairment & write-off.

GGR Division Total Revenue was $371 million, up 28% year-on-year and up 25% sequentially. This strong performance by the GGR division clearly demonstrates, less than one year after the transaction, the value of the Fugro Geoscience acquisition.

Multi-client revenue increased to $166 million, up 7% year-on-year and up 35% sequentially. Multi-client prefunding revenue was impacted by delays of large programs as some clients deferred their spending decisions. •Prefunding revenue was $81 million. Multi-client cash capex was $117 million, 69% pre-funded, and mainly focused on the Gulf of Mexico with the continuation of our IBALT program, in preparation for the future lease rounds but also offshore in the North Sea. Late in the quarter CGG was also awarded, three large high-end 3D multi-client survey programs offshore Brazil that will cover 30,000 km2 including the promising provinces of Foz do Amazonas Basin, Barreirinhas and Campos. •After-sales were $85 million, up 25% year-on-year.  •Subsurface Imaging&Reservoir revenue was $206 million, up 51% year-on-year and up 18% sequentially. Demand for subsurface imaging was strong in all centers. Subsurface Imaging centers in France and Oman were renewed and two new centers opened in Thailand and Myanmar. The contribution of reservoir businesses to revenue was solid. Our Data Management Services activity was awarded a significant contract in Norway with the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) relating to the Diskos Database. This solution will streamline data management through the shared electronic storage of seismic data of Norway. 

GGR Division EBITDAs was $230.0 million, a margin of 61.9%.

GGRDivision EBIT was $86.3 million, a margin of 23.2%. The multi-client depreciation rate amounted to 74%, leading to a $783 million Net Book Value at the end of December 2013 (not including the Geospec library and other libraries with a $35m Net Book Value).

GGR Division Capital Employed was $2.8 billion at the end of December 2013.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Group Financial Results

Group Total Revenue was $955 million, up 2% year-on-year and up 5% sequentially. This breaks down to 28% from the Equipment division, 33% from the Acquisition division, and 39% from the GGR division.

Full-Year 2013 Financial Results

Group Total Revenue was $3.766 billion, up 10% compared to 2012 as a result of an estimated 17% increase corresponding to the activities acquired from Fugro and a (4)% decrease relating to the transfer of the SWOBS activities to Seabed Geosolutions. Group revenue breaks down to 22% from the Equipment division, 43% from the Acquisition division and 35% from the GGR division.

• Equipment revenue was down (13)%. 57% of the total sales related to land equipment and 43% to marine equipment. No high-channel-count crews were launched in 2013 compared to 2012 where $150 million related to high-channel- count crews in Oman and Saudi Arabia. Sales were at a record level in Russia where the size of crews increased although softer in China. Marine streamers sales were mainly driven by the replacement market this year. • Acquisition revenue was up 19%. The four C-Class vessels from Fugro joined CGG's fleet on 1st of February. Production rate was at a record high 92% level compared to 90% in 2012. Airborne joined in early September. Marine contract revenue was up 36% year-on-year at $1.786 billion, while land and airborne revenue was down (23)% at $440 million. • GGR revenue was up 36%. Multi-client revenue was up 24% with a particularly strong H1, mainly driven by Brazil and the North Sea. The year was excellent for Subsurface Imaging with sustained activity in all centers and large projects in the US. Reservoir businesses delivered a solid contribution as expected.

Group EBIT was $423.2 million up 5%, and representing a margin of 11.2%. After NRFI, Group EBIT was $406 million, and after impairment & write-off, Group EBIT was $(394.3) million:  

• The NFRI were $(17) million at the end of December. With the $63 million net capital gain from the SWOBS transaction (the $85 million capital gain was reduced by the negative contribution of the Seabed Geosolutions JV due to a slow start and operational issues on one project), the integration and restructuring costs relating to the Fugro Geoscience transaction eventually amounted to $(80) million.  • Assets impairment & write-off at $800 million:

-- Land: $79 million as a result of more difficult market conditions overall.    • Marine $721 million: due to $139 million vessel fair value rebasement to reflect future utilization mode and $582 million as a consequence of the planned (25)% fleet downsizing plan and the change in market outlook.• Equipment EBIT margin was 28.0% with a very strong Q4, showing a strong resilience thanks to efficient cost management, despite the lower volume and lack of high-channel-count crews. R&D expenses were high at 5.6% of revenue. Sercel launched two new products: Sentinel MS (Multi-Sensor streamer) in marine and the 508XT land acquisition system. • Acquisition EBIT margin was 2.5%. After a H1 which was above expectations, H2 was tougher with difficult market conditions. Despite an excellent marine production rate at 92% and a high commercial success rate, marine activity was impacted by H2 delays and low pricing environment. Land suffered from challenging safety and weather conditions in H1 and from a very low winter season in North America. Airborne's contribution was limited as it joined CGG in early September. • GGR EBIT margin was at 24.5%, a solid performance across all the businesses. Multi-client activity was strong in H1 and the prefunding rate for the whole year was 69%. Subsurface Imaging performance was at a record high level in all centers across the world. Reservoir and geology activities continued to be solid driven by sustained demand for geology products & services and reservoir softwares.

    Starting January 1, 2013, CGG applies IAS19 revised - Employee benefits. As the application of this new standard is a change of accounting policy, all comparative financial information has been restated to present comparative amounts for each period presented as if the new accounting policy had always been applied.  The adjustments resulting from the immediate recognition of past services costs were as follows as of December 31, 2012: Increase in employee benefit liability of U.S.$15.9 million, decrease in retained earnings of U.S.$(10.0) million and decrease in deferred tax liability of U.S.$(5.9) million.

UNAUDITED ANALYSIS BY SEGMENT  

We previously reported our results on the basis of two segments: Geophysical Services and Geophysical Equipment. As a result of the acquisition of Fugro's Geoscience Division, we changed our organization, as well as the way management measures our performance. Since February 1, 2013, we have been organized in three Divisions:

Acquisition segment, which comprises the following business lines: 

-   Marine acquisition: seismic data acquisition offshore undertaken by us on behalf of a specific client or for our Multi-client business line (internal activity);

-   Land and Airborne: other seismic data acquisition undertaken by us on behalf of a specific client, or for our Multi-client business line (internal activity);

Geology, Geophysics & Reservoir ("GGR") segment which comprises the following business lines: 

-        Multi-clients: development and management of seismic surveys undertaken by us and licensed to a number of clients on a non-exclusive basis;

• Subsurface Imaging and Reservoir: processing and imaging of geophysical data, reservoir characterization, geophysical consulting and software services, geological data library and data management solutions. •Equipment segment, which we conduct through Sercel, comprises our manufacturing and sales activities for seismic equipment used for data acquisition, both on land and marine. 

Financial information by segment is reported in accordance with our internal reporting system and provides internal segment information that is used by the chief operating decision maker to manage and measure the performance.

We also changed our main performance indicator from operating income to earnings before interest and tax ("EBIT"). We define EBIT as operating income plus our share of income in companies accounted for under the equity method. EBIT is used by management as a performance indicator because it captures the contribution to our results of the significant businesses that we manage through our joint-ventures.

Prior period segment disclosure has been restated to reflect the new segments.
